Chris Broussard ‏@Chris_Broussard Eric Gordon and the Phoenix Suns agree to a Maximum Offer sheet worth $58 million over 4 years, sources said.

Interesting move.

Also Rockets rescinded Courtney Lee's qualifying offer, which makes no sense now with Gordon getting offer sheet from Phoenix.

Dragic turned down Rockets offer, and they will meet with Jeremy Lin, and could offer him a deal like Omer Asik and Landry Fields with a poison pill that makes it hard to match.

Hornets gotta match that..

I read that Dragic is looks for 9 mill a year, and Rockets might give Lin 8 to 9 mill per year
both players are not worth that..

Because the existence of FA in every sport is a constant escalation and inflation of contracts to the point of absurdity... and then it keeps going.

It just drives me nuts, dude. A team basically has $60M to divvy up amongst 12 guys. How does a sane person say, "alright, let's start out by giving Eric Gordon 25% of that"?
Watch the Hornets match it.

Thats pretty bad, but in baseball it is REALLY out of control, because the salary "cap" is much higher, and even then, its not really a cap, a team can go straight past that if they like.

Teams are even giving out contracts they KNOW they will regret, like Pujols and Fielder getting 9 or 10 years. Teams know they won't be producing at the end of that, but they sacrifice that salary to get them for the majority of that contract when they will produce. And it won't stop.

Ya. That's the major reason why baseball's a distant 3rd in terms of my favorite sports.
If Nash leaves (and he almost certainly will) we'll be a 20-30 win team for the next 2-3 years, Eric Gordon or not, and perennial contenders for the # 1 pick in the draft. Best case scenario, we'll pick wisely in the drafts, and within 4-5 years we'll have a young, talented group of players. Gordon's contract will either be expiring or it will have expired by that time.

We gotta pay somebody in the meantime, and if the Hornets match, that only hurts them. If Nash stays (again, unlikely) we suddenly have a solid 2-guard to pair up in the backcourt with him. Maybe that nets us a shot at the 6th-8th seeds in the West for the next year or two.

Free agency has become the anchorman knife fight.
