Eric Gordon
SG, 6’4, 215lbs, 28 years old, 9 years of experience

A season of relentless three-point gunning and not much else from Gordon, shooting nearly nine threes a game and almost one every three minutes. 37.2% of them went in, relatively consistently, and amidst a rela-tively healthy season for Gordon, whose 75 games played were the most since his rookie season. Gordon is worth his money if he guns up the shots this well, this often, in this many games. That said, if a big con-tract is needed as the foundation for a deal for a star, this is probably the one, considering its size and Gordon's relative unreliability considering his injury history. For now, though, it's all good.

Player Plan: Three years and circa. $40.5 million remaining, with no options. Gordon is a good player in the best situation for his new style of play, on a contract that is not prohibitive. It is hard to imagine him making it to the end of the fourth season, though; as of next offseason, this will become a very tradeable deal.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
