Default How Much Is Ben Gordon Worth??

Ben Gordon is looking for an extension. How much is he worth?

http://www.thejournalnews.com/apps/p...708260380/1108

Last year's numbers:

21.4 ppg (in only 33 minutes) on 46% shooting, 41% from three, 86% from the line, 3.6 apg, 3.1 rpg

He is undersized, but if you watch the Bulls, you'll see that it isn't that big of a deal on the defensive end. His strength and quickness make it hard for twos to post him up too much. However, bigger twos do bother him, sometimes, on the offensive end.

He is a decent defender and, of course, an explosive scorer. Only 9 guards score more points (Kobe, Arenas, VC, Pierce, JJ, AI, Wade, Redd, Allen). He is clutch and can carry a team if he is on a roll, and is of good character and a hard worker.

He is just 24 and if he played 40 minutes per, he'd do about 25-27 ppg.

The Bulls have to resign Deng as well. So how much would you give Gordon?

I think he is worth $10m per.

11-12 mill per year.... You are right...if he played big minutes he would score much more...He is a clutch shooter who will make big shots when it counts. Those are the types of players you shouldn't trade. He is an athletic freak and a very hard worker. He still needs to improve on defense, but he has made strides in the last two years. He has never had any injury problems or off the court issues (in the NBA). He is also a good at driving and dishing which works perfect in the Bulls system.

Everything in the range of $9-11 mil. sounds about right.

****, hate those two numbers...but yeah, that's how much he's worth.

It's worth a max deal to not lose a player of his caliber... however, he's probly not quite worth that much.

I'd say he should get about whatever Andre Iguodala gets. Somewhere around 10 mill.

Ben had easily the best year on the team last year. And he cant even be called inefficient anymore. And he is a vastly improved(yet still undersized of course) defender. If he improves anywhere close to as much as he did in each of the last 2 off seasons he might come out and be a 24/4/4 player. I doubt if it takes even 2 years for him to be an all star. In the only 2 months of the season he played at least 35 minutes he got:

24/4/3 shot 50% and 46% from 3 and 24/4/3 on 46 and 43 shooting. he put up basically the same numbers in December(23/3/3 47 and 40) in only 28 minutes a game.


Not worth max money but considering guys like Bobby Simmons have like 50 million dollar deals....

I wont be suprised or upset if he gets 10 a year.

I dont think most people who watched him last year would really call him too streaky or inconsistient. There was a 2 month stretch where he only had 1 game under 18 points that wasnt in a win where his minutes were low due to a blowout. he had a 32 game stretch where he was over 20 points in 25 of them. And 3 of those he was under 20 were 17, 18, and 17.

He has times where hes hot and cold like everyone else but game in and game out he got things done. Even when his shot was off he got to the line a good bit. Easily one of the best pure scorers in the league.

Why have the Bulls insisted on developing Gordon as a SG? Are his PG skills really that bad?

He does play some point guard for the Bulls and he is effective. Sometimes he makes lazy passes that result in turnovers but he can make great passes as well. He is such a pure scorer and shooter that he is a better shooting guard though.

In reality he should be getting $7-9 million. With the NBA market what it is he'll probably get about $9-$10.5 million.
