Cavaliers keeping tabs on Eric Gordon, Caris LeVert, Terrence Ross

Eric Gordon’s value hasn’t been this high in years after he’s had multiple injury-plagued seasons. The Cavaliers have kept tabs on Gordon, Caris LeVert, Terrence Ross, among shooting guards on the trade market, I’ve heard.

Caris LeVert returned after missing two games with a sore right calf. He finished with 19 points on 8-for-21 shooting.
“The rhythm of the game is everything in the NBA, so it was little shaky at times, but I pushed through it.” #Pacers…1:51 PM

1️⃣ year ago today: Caris LeVert underwent surgery to remove a cancerous mass on his left kidney.
Here’s my conversation with his surgeon, Dr. Jason Sprunger, about the prodcedure and how it was a rare case: PM

Final: Pelicans 117, #Pacers 113
Duane Washington Jr. had a career-high 21 points all on 3-pointers for shorthanded Indiana, but it wasn’t enough to take down New Orleans.
Caris LeVert had 19 on 8-for-21 shooting after missing the previous two games with a sore right calf. – 10:39 PM
James Boyd @RomeovilleKid
Crazy sequence. Josh Hart fouls Oshae Brissett on a 3. He makes 2 of 3 at the line. Hart then makes a pair of FTs. Caris LeVert comes back and makes a 3. #Pacers trail 115-113 with 2.0 seconds left. – 10:36 PM
James Boyd @RomeovilleKid
Caris LeVert with a 3 and the #Pacers keep hanging around. They trail 111-108 with 19.2 seconds left. – 10:28 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
The longest tenured Pacer in their closing lineup right now? Caris LeVert, who they acquired 373 days ago. New blood trying to steal a road win. Pacers down 5 with 2 minutes to play. – 10:20 PM
James Boyd @RomeovilleKid
End of 3Q: Pelicans 83, #Pacers 79
Chris Duarte has 14, Caris LeVert scored 9 of his 13 in the 3Q.
Devonte’ Graham with a team-high 17 for New Orleans. – 9:56 PM
James Boyd @RomeovilleKid
Caris LeVert with back-to-back buckets. Let’s see if that gets him going. #Pacers lead 77-76. – 9:48 PM
James Boyd @RomeovilleKid
#Pacers were up 72-68 when Caris LeVert missed a pair of free throws. Pelicans go on a 4-0 spurt to tie the game and the momentum has shifted. Tied at 72 with 5:17 left in the third quarter. – 9:42 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
#Pelicans fans are starting to loudly cheer Jose Alvarado defensive sequences, as was the case when he contested a mid-range Caris LeVert shot, then again on Pacers’ final possession of 1Q – 8:39 PM

#Pacers starters:
— Chris Duarte
— Caris LeVert
— Justin Holiday

among 129 players who have at least 75 shot attempts off drives, ONLY giannis has a higher fg% (60.1%). PM

Caris LeVert is questionable with a sore right calf. We’ll find out shortly from Rick Carlisle if he’s in or out tonight against the Pelicans. He’s missed the past two games. #Pacers6:20 PM

David Hardisty @clutchfans
This is a great read from @Kevin O’Connor. It accurately describes the trade value of Talen Horton-Tucker, how a Russell Westbrook-John Wall trade would work and why Eric Gordon is the “NBA Trade Deadline Name to Watch”…2:17 PM

It should not be difficult to find a good offer for Eric Gordon. His value is at an all-time high. He’s been unbelievably professional. His contract has a major incentive for winning a championship. Get a first-round pick and do right by the man. – 1:18 PM

Pacers just wrapped practice in Phoenix, now will head to New Orleans for Monday’s game to conclude this five-game trip.
Caris LeVert sat out the last two games due to a sore right calf. He practiced today and will be a game-time decision. – 3:32 PM

Caris LeVert (sore right calf) is a game-time decision for tomorrow’s contest against the Pelicans. #Pacers3:27 PM

More on this storyline

One name that has been generating a good deal of interest is shooting guard Eric Gordon. The 33-year old is enjoying a bit of a renaissance campaign, shooting a career-best 45.2 percent from 3-point range, and has brought some stability and much-needed professionalism to a young Houston team. The Rockets have received a number of offers for the veteran wing, sources tell The Athletic, but all have been turned down. Barring an offer that simply can’t be ignored, it’s becoming more likely that Gordon remains in Houston past the deadline.  -via The Athletic / January 24, 2022
“I’m not even thinking or worried about that,” Gordon said. “Things happen. Get traded or not, you’ve still got to play the game of basketball. Fortunately, I’ve been here for going on six years now, and it’s been really good. I know the situation I’m in. I’m looking to just continue to play my game and look forward to continue to thrive with this group of guys.” -via Houston Chronicle / January 19, 2022
Eric Gordon, 33, is shooting career-highs from the field (.505) and three-point range (.455) after two injury-riddled seasons. With Gordon healthy and adding a needed veteran presence to a rebuilding Rockets team, Houston is seeking a first-round pick in trade talks for the veteran scoring guard, league sources told HoopsHype. -via HoopsHype / January 17, 2022
