Report: Hornets To Match Any Offer For Eric Gordon

by June 23, 2012

All reports indicate that the Hornets want to build its core around Anthony Davis, the 10th pick in the Draft and Eric Gordon. The Times Picayune reports that the team will likely match any offer sheet for its restricted free agent, including a max deal (New Orleans certainly has bread enough to do so): “All indications point toward the Hornets making a concerted effort to re-sign their restricted free agent, shooting guard Eric Gordon. New Orleans appears ready to match any offer Gordon might get on the open market, even if means extending him a maximum-money contract of five years worth $80 million, league sources said.”
