Q: Any news on Eric Gordon in FA? – Steve Kyler: Heard Wolves, Pacers, and Knicks have interest – not sure what he’ll cost.
It appears unlikely the Pelicans will make a push this summer to re-sign Eric Gordon when he becomes an unrestricted free agent. The Pelicans actively shopped Gordon before last month’s trade deadline but couldn’t get a deal done. There’s also could be some motivation on Gordon’s part to seek a new start with another franchise. If the Pacers make a push, Gordon would probably give strong consideration playing in his hometown of Indianapolis.

“Gotta take this one,” he said. When he stepped outside, the name on the screen gleamed back at him: Chris Paul. “I’m in,” Paul said. “What do you mean you’re in?” Harden asked. Harden and Paul were friends, and they had traded texts throughout the season. CP3, he knew, was examining his pending free agent options, and Harden was hopeful Houston was on Paul’s short list, but he was in the dark about where Paul was leaning. “I mean I’m in,” Paul repeated. “I want to come to Houston. I want to play with you.”
“We talked about it, but there was no answer to it,” D’Antoni says. “I wanted him to be MVP. I told him, ‘Let’s go for it.’ But having that and the majority of the offense in his hands was difficult.” The burden, Harden concedes, was too weighty. “It’s pretty tough to be depended on to make every single play,” he says. “It wears on you when you don’t have someone to relieve some of that for you, when you don’t have that guy who you can throw the ball to for three or four possessions in a row and say, ‘Go make a play.'”
“LeBron’s my man, but he didn’t know,” Paul says now. “I didn’t tell him initially because even though we’re so close, we’re also ultracompetitive.” Twenty minutes later, Paul finally revealed his secret. LeBron’s response? He ordered shots of Don Julio 1942 tequila and clinked glasses with his friend. “Be happy,” LeBron said.
While Stephen Curry has won two MVPs, he believes he may be entering his absolute prime. “I hope it is,” Curry told The Athletic. “You go through this NBA journey and every year you learn something else about yourself, about your team, about being an NBA player. Using all that experience to my advantage, the work you put in off the court in the summertime to get yourself ready. I don’t know exactly where the peak is, but I do think I’m the best version of myself to date.”
Game-worn jerseys from the four teams playing on the NBA’s opening night will be auctioned to raise money for hurricane recovery efforts. The NBA and Turner Sports, which will televise the Cleveland-Boston and Golden State-Houston doubleheader on TNT, will use the auction to benefit the One America Appeal. Besides the jerseys, the auction will include items such as game-worn sneakers and autographed items donated by Turner commentators.
With his 15th NBA campaign in store, LeBron James is not just looking ahead to another season in which he can “strive for greatness,” as he often puts it. This year, he’ll also set the mark for the longest-running continuous signature shoe line in league history (Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls career ended with his 14th Air Jordan shoe in Utah). “No one has ever reached number 15 before LeBron,” designer Jason Petrie said. “So it’s a big deal, and we want to make a celebration of technology, style and of LeBron’s game.”
