Before I start I want to make it clear that I am one of DD biggest surporters. I usually wouldn't even think about trading DD but, the losing and lack of playoffs over the past 5 years is getting to me. I do believe that DD and Rudy can play with eachother. Give them training camp and they could make it work. I think I can't ignore is that how much of a good fit EG would be next to RG. If you haven't heard EG has been pretty much trying to get himself out of New Orleans.
Gordon sat at the end of the bench, but appeared engaged during timeouts. But after the game, Gordon appeared to be puzzled about getting benched. He also made no mention of the shouting match. He finished with seven points on two-of-three shooting, playing just more than 17 minutes. It was the Hornets’ eighth consecutive loss on the road.

He also made no mention of the shouting match. He finished with seven points on two-of-three shooting, playing just more than 17 minutes. It was the Hornets’ eighth consecutive loss on the road. New Orleans Times-PicayuneHornets coach Monty Williams and point guard Eric Gordon got into a screaming match during a timeout with 8:37 left in the third quarter. Millsap had just scored on a putback to put Utah ahead 55-47 and New Orleans called a timeout. Williams was visibly agitated, yelling in Gordon's direction. He had to be held back by assistant coach Randy Ayers after Gordon hollered back at him, and when the team went to the sidelines, Williams continued screaming at Gordon. NBA.comA majority of fans in New Orleans have not forgotten the comments Gordon made last summer after he became a restricted free agent and agreed to a four-year, $58 million offer sheet with the Suns, which the Hornets matched even though Gordon said his "heart was in Phoenix." The Hornets were unable to pull off a trade involving Gordon before the February trade deadline, but the franchise is still likely to remain open to trading him after this season ends, according to sources Saturday. New Orleans Times-PicayuneI'm not sure if I would want him here after all that. He seems like one of those players that if things dont go his way he wants out. His a legit scorer with serious range. His talent can't be ignore and the fact that his only one year older than DD. Stephen Brrotherson doesn't seem to agree.Gordon’s situation is a little different – he is not happy in New Orleans and hasn’t kept that a big secret. The franchise matched his contract for two reasons – primarily, you don’t get ahead in the NBA letting star level players walk without compensation and secondarily there was a hope Gordon would come around to what the Hornets are building and buy in, especially with all the uncertainties now out of the way.

would you trade Demar for Eric Gordon this summer?
Flat out NO. I am not into reclamation projects – unless I’m giving up next to nothing. Let someone else take the risk

can a Demar derozan for Eric gordon trade work? of course fillers and draft picks may be needed.
It could work, you wouldn’t even have to add all that much in salary – the bigger issue is – do you want a player who is trying to force his way out of a team or keep the guy who wants to be on your team? EC hasn’t exactly looked great lately and he’s owed almost $45m over the next 3 years. Not sure I’d even touch the deal, certainly not adding in draft picks.
