Anyone know the situation next offseason for Gordon, is he a RFA? Would the pacers be able to offer him a contract as a RFA if he were?
I am trying to think of a player who fans would be willing to pay and go see. Like the LeBrons, Kobes, Celtics, Magic, Spurs teams. Fans will come out to see those players knowing the Pacers are not likely to win.
First and foremost Pacers need to think about improving the team, but secondly we need to do it with players who fans would be willing to see. There are not many players out there at a superstar level who the pacers would actually have a chance to acquire.
I want the pacers to sign a David West this offseason, but he is not going to improve attendance. Im not even sure if signing Kevin Love would improve attendance right away.
Eric Gordon would improve the team, and improve attendance and for this reason he might be worth a MAX contract. I doubt the Clipps are going to offer him MAX type money with Griffen around.
I wonder if Gordon would even want to play in his home state, LA does have its perks and Griffen is a good teammate to have.
I know this is not likely to happen, and not sure if it even should, since we have George who will likely become a very good SG, but in terms of attendance, we need someone who not only improves the roster, but fans are willing to pay to see.
anyone else out there a possibility?
