NBA Rumors: Phoenix Suns Pursuing Guard Eric Gordon

The latest batch of NBA rumors have a lot of teams in the pursuit of Eric Gordon.  A surprise team has popped up in discussions and it is the Phoenix Suns.  The team may be lowballing Steve Nash but they are prepared to offer the max to Gordon.

I am shocked by this development.  I could not believe my eyes when I read that Gordon was a possibility for the Suns, but then I thought about it.  He would certainly fit in with new point guard Kendall Marshall and give the team a brand new young backcourt.  I think those two could grow and develop together into a great tandem.

I expect that the Suns will do everything in their power to get Gordon.  If they are able to get a star of his caliber, I think that they will be back in the playoffs quicker than many think.  I hope to see that because the Suns are certainly a fun team to watch.  A young backcourt will only help people support the team.

Eric Gordon still has plenty of suitors on the market so he is going to take some time to make a decision.  I do not expect him to join a team for a couple of days, if not a week.  He needs to mull through all of his offers before deciding his basketball future.  I do not blame him for that, since this is first big contract.

The Suns adding a guy like Gordon would shake up the NBA rumors.  Not many people had him pegged for the desert, but I expect the New Orleans Hornets and Indiana Pacers to make a strong push for him.  The Hornets offer Anthony Davis and the Pacers offer the hometown vibe.  Big decision coming.
