    There’s a “great deal of interest” from other NBA teams in trading for veteran shooting guard Eric Gordon from the Houston Rockets, according to an update from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski late Wednesday.

    Wojnarowski, who said the Rockets have been “very active” in trade discussions, did not mention what the trade return for Gordon might be. He also did not identify any specific suitors.

    This is the best I've seen him play on both sides of the court. He would definitely help someone.

    If you compare Victor and Eric strictly on their current ability to play and not the money they are owed Gordon is the better player. Also, smart GMs know that the last year of Eric's deal is not fully guaranteed.

    Sources say eric gordon is demanding a trade from the houston rockets. Requests to be sent to a fun destination instead

    I really hope this is true. I thought it might be hard to move him and his contract considering how many games he misses due to nagging injuries. Not expecting much in return.

    Outstanding turn of events.

    Getting an asset for Gordon, then being able to use the cap space will be amazing.

    Where was all this interest when we shipped off Covington? We just needed capspace for Wood.

    "What do you mean, 'Cancun doesn't have a team'?"
    "Take it easy, Eric."

    The end of the 2017-2018 Rockets is near. I am ready to be hurt.

    Teams didn't think he would be healthy or rebound after the surgery.

    It was foolish because even though he was up and down in the Lakers series, physically he was moving a whole lot better.

    Man.... the Lakers series was a perfect storm of bad luck for the Rockets.

    Well, it’s getting closer to seeing another new roster. Gordon, Tucker and Oladipo on the trading block. Wonder how soon will these trades be made if any?
    Hopefully right after the all star break and not on the 26th. Go Rockets!! H-Town Crazy!!

    The day this scrub gets traded will be a glorious day for the Rockets, dude has been a joke for years now.

    Oh and we don't have to see this anymore.

    lol it's so funny how obvious it is that teams - in this case the Rockets - pay Woj for these.

    Let Porter have those minutes and maybe Jones.

    We need to move Tucker, Oladipo, House and McLemore too.

    Bring up and play Porter and Martin..... sign Armoni Brooks to a very team friendly deal.

    Leaking the Oladipo extension denial and then leaking that an equivalent player on what’s now a bargain is available?

    We got more out of him than I thought we would because of his injury history, he was a streaky but overall good player here.....and he is getting older so time to move him is now.
