Phoenix’s Bench Reinforcement Project Hits the Top with Eric Gordon
Eric Gordon joins the Fellowship of the Ring of the Phoenix.
Reporter Shams Charania of ‘The Athletic’ reported on the 3rd (Korean time) that Eric Gordon has agreed to a contract with the Phoenix Suns.
Gordon, who has been active on the NBA stage since the 2008-2009 season, is a shooting guard who appeared in 69 games wearing Houston and Clippers uniforms last season and recorded an average of 12.4 points and a 37.1% 3-point shooting success rate. Although his performance has declined compared to his prime, he is still an attractive bench resource who can add experience to the team.
According to reporter Karania, Gordon received offers from a number of contender teams, including Phoenix, Golden State, and Milwaukee. Gordon, who wanted to play next season with the goal of winning, decided to join Phoenix after thinking about it despite the option of a higher salary.
After acquiring Kevin Durant in a trade with Brooklyn midway through last season, Phoenix acquired Bradley Beal from Washington in June to build a strong Devin Booker-Bill-Durant triangle.
However, Phoenix, which did not have enough cap space due to Bill’s joining, rushed to bring the best bench resources to the team in this FA market.
The results deserved a passing grade. Phoenix, who signed contracts with Chimeji Metu, Drew Eubanks, Watanabe Yuta, and Keita Bates-Diop, hit the bench reinforcement project with Gordon that day and built a fairly competitive squad. 먹튀검증
If there is something in common among the bench members who will support the new triangle, it is that most of them have a good outside shot success rate, so they can help with spacing.
Existing resources Damian Lee (44.5%) and Cameron Payne (36.8%), as well as newly joined Watanabe (44.4%), Bates-Diop (38.9%), and Gordon (37.1%) all have good three-point shots.
