Eric Gordon to undergo another arthoscopic knee surgery, out six more weeks
 
The New Orleans Hornets announced today that Hornets guard Eric Gordon will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right knee tomorrow. The surgery is needed to fully resolve an injury that was sustained earlier in the season during a Hornets game. After that point it did not fully heal with treatment and rest. The doctors expect that Eric will be fully recovered and able to return to playing in up to six weeks.

Chris Paul trade looking better and better everyday.

Although Chris Kaman did have a huge game tonight. Looks like he's really trying to make the Hornets feel silly for shelving him while on the trade block.

So, once Gordon and Kaman leave this summer, the Hornets will have given away Chris Paul for Aminu and maybe a late lottery pick?

it's looking more and more that way every day. gordon isn't helping his case either but he'll probably get a max deal from someone if he passes his physical. all those knee surgeries at such a young age though? never a good sign

So its....give a big deal to an injury prone middling 2 guard who has not been healthy in 3 years...or let him walk and have traded Chris Paul for a young guy who has barely played and the um...12th best pick unless they win the lottery?

Thats...almost lose lose.

Where the Hell is Clippersfan when i told him how injury prone Eric Gordon is!!!!



Sucks cuz he's a talented player but we might be seeing BRoy pt. 2 with this guy.



Stern really f*cked the Hornets. That 3 team deal would have had the Hornets in the playoff race.

Yes, but they would have been riddled in salaries, and a mediocre 6-8 seed at best. Unfortunate situation that Minny is better and Gordon's knees are made of glass, but I would have done the trade back in December too. They'll have a decent chance at Anthony Davis.

This should make Lakers fans f*cking furious.

I don't even like the Lakers and I'm p!ssed how Stern did them over.

They would have exactly 3 players on contract past next season and 2 of them are Emeka and Ariza who would be there anyway....and one of them is on an option so it might just be Emeka.

Having 2 contracts guaranteed past next season is not riddled. Not only is it not riddled...its so low they would be required to sign player just to reach the NBA salary floor.

They would have 25-28 million in cap space next summer depending on what they do around the draft and how much they used this offseason and Arizas option and all.

They wouldnt have any contract issues either way.

What a shame, used to be my favorite Clipper. Was hoping he would have a breakout season this year.

All that matters is that Hornets and Bobcats will both get awesome draft picks.

Good thing they traded for a young guy who hasn't play most of the year (and last year) instead of a starting five worth of guys who produce on a regular basis.

I guess occupying the sidelines with suits is a basketball reason.

If Bird walks this summer I'm terrified of Morway/Pritchard/whomever giving him a terrible max offer. That happens I'll try and convince myself the Hornets have just been tanking all season, which isn't exactly asinine.
