Ben Gordon where will he go?
Where is BG going to be at the start or the 2009-2010 season? I'm a hardcore chicago bulls fan and I was fortunate enough to actually go to a bunch of games when the bulls had MJ Scottie and the crew and actually traveled to see the away games in the finals every time they made it. Anyway its obvious I love the bulls but I dont think they should re-sign BG. Why? he takes alot of bad shots lets be honest that off balanced three on paul pierce was lucky. Now the bulls have john salmons who they acquired at the trade deadline and if he can play like how he has all season and this past off season it would be wise to let BG go or at least sign and trade him even though no team was interested in doingso last year. Getting rid of Gordon Salmons will play the 2 then hopefully Deng can come back and be effective maybe even just scoring 16 and 8 boards i would be happy with that if salmons stays hot. So heres the question what should the bulls front office do from the outside looking in? Also if BG gets moved or signs somewhere else where will it be maybe europe?
Suns- They wanna get younger, his style of play can thrive in the west...playing with Nash
Dallas- Would be a great guy to add to the back court
Utah- he may be low on there list but Gordon at the 2, Brewer at the 3 and AK47 off the bench
Pistons- only if they believe Stuckey can be a good PG
those are my 4 ideal spots for Gordon...i course he can go for bread to a Golden State or Indiana....he may wanna ring and go San Antonio?
Sure his shot selection is questionable, but he's the perfect sixth man (also consider- JR Smith or Jason Terry). Instant O and their are many teams that would love his services.
of course he would be a perfect sixth man on any team, nthegoodlife, but his going to demand and get starter money this off season. got to figure his going to get a 5-6 year contract for 55-65 mill. their is going to be a ton of teams looking to sign him.
He doesn't defend well enough. Thats why I said sixth man, besides he's not very beneficial to a team (besides scoring).
We all now Ben Gordon will get overpaided, now we just have figure out where.
First off no way is he going to Europe.
A few ideas I have are.
1. Thunder: They need a player who can spread the floor and give Durant and Westbrook room to get to the hoop.
2. Spurs: I don't exactly what their cpa space is, but he would be a good fit with Parker and Duncan.
These sound like options that could happen?
Most likely, Raps are gonna sign a SG this summa...someone that they can rely on to jus score......someone who is a clutch player.....
as for free agents who could possibly fill the raps role, one is Jamal Crawford and another is Ben Gordan.......Toronto has the money this summa to sign someone like Ben Gordan......what about Marion you ask? keep in mind he aint gonna get a 17 mil contract ever again (too old).....he aint gonna get a 10 mil even...prolly end up with a 8mil....9 tops.....bottom line, raps have the money to sign both Gordan and Marion.....
is Chicago gonna re-sign Gordan...hell no....lets be honest, i doubt Chicago will do anything this summa, except stick with the team they got....let Luol Deng play the 3 and Salmons play 2......they aren't gonna re-sign Gordan cuz we all know that in 2010, they'll be the front-runners goin after D-Wade....and why wouldn't D-Wade come to Chicago...its his hometown...he's already won a championship in Miami and so no point of stickin around over there.....no point of killin himself for no purpose....and dont give me that crap about how they have a group of young promising players and with that Miami could be a strong playoff contender....they should count their blessings that they didnt play a team like the cavs in the first round....
1. He could go to Golden State he does fit their with all the scoring they do.
2. The pistons but i just don't think he would fit well with them. I am a Die Hard Pistons fan so i would not mind it BG is one of my favorite players.
3. Dallas he can fight in with them and i think needs a superstar pointguars to get him going.
4. New Orleans theri we go they score, Superstar PG, i think he could go their i mean New Orleans does need a starting SG.
