NBA Rumors: Eric Gordon A "Possible Target" For Phoenix Suns

NBA Rumors: Phoenix Suns Are Interested In Trading For Eric Gordon

Eric Gordon is a combo guard that currently plays for Houston Rockets. As far as role players go, he is an extremely versatile guard on the offensive end. Gordon is a capable shooter and ballhandler, and can at times create his own shot. 

There is no doubt that Eric Gordon has been one of the players to receive a lot of interest from around the league. He has notably been linked with the Cavaliers recently, and it was reported that they could be willing to give up their 2022 first-round pick for him.

The latest team to be connected to Eric Gordon is the Phoenix Suns. Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report revealed that the Suns are looking for "an upgrade to their wing rotation", and added that "league personnel" have touted Eric Gordon as a "possible target".

Phoenix has maintained its efforts to move Dario Saric, and it appears the Suns are searching for an upgrade to their wing rotation. Eric Gordon has been linked by league personnel as a possible target, as he and Chris Paul shared a successful stint in Houston. Of note with Gordon here: The veteran guard's contract becomes fully guaranteed for 2023-24 if his team wins the championship and Gordon reaches a minutes requirement. 

As mentioned, Chris Paul and Eric Gordon shared a few years as teammates as members of the Houston Rockets. There's no question that Eric Gordon could be a perfect 6th man for the Phoenix Suns, and he has plenty of playoffs experience which could help them as well.

We'll see if the Phoenix Suns do end up making a trade to acquire Eric Gordon. There's an argument to be made that they should stay put and not risk moving any part of a successful team. However, Eric Gordon can definitely be a difference-maker, and if it doesn't cost them too many players/picks, then the Suns should absolutely get him.
