Ben Gordon

I really feel for Ben Gordon as I still feel he is an above average scorer in the NBA and has really good shooting %, however doesn't really get the oppurtunity. What makes it worse however he is on lottery bound teams. I know that he did it to himself in signing with Detroit, but is there a play-off team out there that you could see making a play for Gordon? (has ETO at end of this season or gets paid another 12-13mil for the following) As he can really give an offensive boost off the bench.

He is clearly going to accept

He is clearly going to accept his option because no team is going to give him 12 million unless it is a 3 year deal. I doubt any team is desperate enough for bench scoring to take on that kind of salary for next season.

If Memphis moves Rudy Gay in

If Memphis moves Rudy Gay in the offseason, they could snag him.

Why do you feel bad for him?

Why do you feel bad for him? He's making 9 million dollars a year.

With the Blazers, they have a

With the Blazers, they have a starting group that is arguably top 5 (behind Heat, Thunder, Clippers, and a few others but that'll be for another thread) point is their bench is sooooooo weak. They could use a comboguard off the bench to back Lilliard and Matthews, keep these guys fresh and add another option that opposing teams have to gameplan for. I don't know about the financial aspects but I think it'd be a perfect fit.

The Blazers have cap a good

The Blazers have cap a good amount of cap room to bring in some quality players in the off season. Gordon would be an excellent fit with the current roster because he would provide much needed bench scoring but it would make zero sense financially. It isn't like Ben Gordon is going to make them a title contender so it makes more sense to save their money to sign FAs in the off season.

I like ben gordon if he is

I like ben gordon if he is making $5 million. Then he is a good guy to have on your bench. He is experienced, he can be the sixth or seventh man and score at a decent percentage.

Ben Gordon

Gordon has always been able to score points in bunches... but he gives up more points than he scores. That is the biggest reason the Bulls refused his contract demands and let him go in the first place.

He was great in chicago next

He was great in chicago next to hinrich and could have been the perfect fit next to rose... and be a part of several title runs.

But he prefers to take the money. I feel very sorry for that kind of people. 1M $ is an enourmous change for me. 10M $ is almost nothing for players like Gordon who woll make money during their carreer.
