Default Gordon and Thornton's Options Picked Up

The Los Angeles Clippers today exercised the club’s third-year contract option on guard Eric Gordon and the fourth-year contract option on forward Al Thornton.

Gordon, who was selected by the Clippers as the seventh overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft, begins his second NBA season and is now signed through the 2010-11 campaign. Under the NBA’s Collective Bargaining Agreement, the Clippers had the right to exercise this contract option.

Gordon turned in a stellar rookie campaign, averaging 16.1 points in 78 games played last season, earning him a spot on the All-Rookie Second Team as well as seeing him finish fifth in Rookie of the Year voting.

Thornton, the 14th overall selection by the Clippers in the 2007 NBA Draft is now also signed through the 2010-11 season, with the Clippers holding the right of first refusal. In two seasons with the Clippers, Thornton has tallied 15.6 points and 5.2 rebounds per game.

Nothing unexpected here.
