Eric Gordon is a restricted free agent with the New Orleans Hornets, and some reports say they’re likely to match any offer that comes in for the Indiana native. But that won’t stop Gordon from meeting with a few teams and locking down the big money—a max deal, perhaps—that he’s hoping to get, ESPN reports: “Guard Eric Gordon will visit the Indiana Pacers on Sunday, the first day of free agency, according to league sources. Gordon, a restricted free agent with the New Orleans Hornets, will then visit the Houston Rockets on Monday and the Phoenix Suns Tuesday. While Gordon hopes to make his decision before his first Team USA practice in Las Vegas on July 6, he also has a meeting scheduled with Portland on July 5 and he may meet with Charlotte and Dallas, sources said. Gordon is seeking a max contract that will pay him $58 million over four years, and sources say some teams are willing to make that offer.”
