As we all know Hornets shooting guard Eric Gordon will be a restricted free agent this offseason and will probably get more than a few offers from other teams. According to Larry Bird the Indiana Pacers will not be one of those teams suiting Gordon. Bird says that going after restricted free agents is not the “style” of Pacers president Herb Simon.
Eric Gordon is from the Indiana area and went to Indiana University. Indiana has a good young team on the rise and I could see Eric Gordon wanting to go play for his hometown team, but it does not seem like that is going to happen.
At least that’s one less team the Hornets have to worry about if they do decide to try and bring Eric Gordon back.
