I'm certainly not convinced of that. Gordon didn't look any more impressive than Paul George in his second year. Gordon did score significantly more points (about 5 ppg more), although I'm also pretty sure Gordon wasn't ranked 6th in the NBA in steals per game per 48 min his sophomore season.
Another damning stat is that out of Gordon's 4-year career, he has only once played more games in a season than George just played in the abbreviated 2011-2012 season. George played more games in the shortened season than Gordon played from 2010 through 2012. No thanks on giving George plus another player for this guy.
