If trading him truly is the best option, it would serve us much better to wait until he's healthy and producing. Although I'm sure by that point all the whiners will be praising him and happy that he's on the team.


There is absolutely no justification to move him before next season unless he forces it.

I'd say him forcing it is even more reason to wait out his veto power. He'll have 2 years and a player option left, teams will be interested next season if he's been faking.

Im not disagreeing, but what would we actually get for a guy that was willing to spend 2+ years of his playing career faking an injury?

The GM that gives up any value for that type of "character" is a ruhtard.

If Gordon is going to sit out of the sport he loves for 2+ years all because of some mysterious hate for New Orleans then I'll buy everyone on this board season tickets.

With Houston now not in the market for a star SG, probably a similar deal from Dallas that we could have gotten from Phoenix OKC screwed us. Even if Houston didn't get Gordon they'd have bid up the price. Yet another conspiratorial coincidence, Gordon goes from almost ready to play to out indefinitely right after James Harden gets traded to Houston.

Im really liberal when it comes "character issues" and whether or not I want those guys on my team. As long as the guy isn't some felon, I don't really care what he does as long as he can play.

But strictly from a basketball perspective, giving up 2+ players years of your career is a WAY WORSE offense than some guy getting arrested for weed or some of the other stuff athletes get busted for a lot. If i'm an owner or GM and i'm reasonably certain Gordon spent all this time faking an injury, there is absolutely no way i'd allow that guy on my team. No way.

Yeah, there have been lots of "coincidences" surrounding Gordon since he got here. Too many. The whole Olympic tryout. As i've mentioned before, Phoenix's mythical medical staff deciding he was healthy enough to for them to get a deal from them. Him suddenly getting healthy enough to play at the end of last season, just in time to showcase himself for that max deal he wanted.

Why can't we fine him for conduct detrimental to the team when doctors say he is fine?
