1. the Hornets will offer him the same amount in the summer.
2. Gordon agent goes out and see if they can land a contract worth more than the offer and signs.
3. If they can't Hornets win big, but if Gordon finds the contract he's looking for, hornets match.

Hornets can still match any offer to Gordon in the offseason. Just means they won't get a discount. The hornets should not have offered a max deal today (let alone a 5 year one). let the summer market dictate the max and match if necessary. All that new orleans lost today was a chance at a discount gordon for the next four years.

Hold on, so the Hornets (read: Stern) offered the max and Gordon and his people said no? Or you're just speaking in the hypothetical?

Hornets offered 4 yrs a little over 50mil. EJ wanted what he THINKS he could get later 4 yrs/58mil

He was lowballed, but honestly, what good is it to get him signed now when you can do the same deal later and know more about the knee, the team, more trades, THEIR PICKS, etc.?

I certainly agree with that. The Hornets didn't lose any leverage today.

It would be funny if the Nets pick him up in the end, man I am so hopeless for a Nets big three scenario(Dwight-Gordon-Deron). I know its impossible, but hey fans have rights to dream dont they?

It's also alleged Indy's owner doesn't think it's "right" to chase RFAs. Driving up the cost on fellow small market owners and such. I honestly can't remember the Pacers ever offering an RFA, of course, they also haven't had cap space since...well since I knew what a salary cap was, until this past season.

And of course, talk is cheap. I really do think the whole "Indy'll pull out all the stops to get EJ" stuff is more media fluff than reality though.
