ESPN: Houston Rockets interested in acquiring Eric Gordon

We'd have a team that would not be getting great perimeter wing stops, and really just going for a SUPER version of our current offense haha. 130+ pt game averages!

So to recap: Injured, inefficient, and expensive.
Maybe in our system his numbers increase and it maximizes his skill-set better than before....but that only solves 1 of the 3 problems.
Sacramento tried it. Milwaukee keeps trying it. The Knicks tried it (and got lucky).....what is it? Amassing high volume scoring guards and thinking that is a good idea. It only ever worked once (the knicks) and they got steam-rolled in the finals once a real team showed up. We know what this team needs and it isn't another slash and shoot player.
Look at every NFL team that ignores their O and D Lines for the flashy players at RB, WR, CB, QB, etc. All losers.
Plus, we give up a lot in this trade...don't forget that. No more parsons. No more delfino. No more t. jones/D-mo. Kiss all that good bye to watch eric gordon shoot 40%...that is when he isn't rehabbing his knees.

I tend to ignore articles like this unless they actually mention concrete negotiations progressing. Otherwise it's usually just a tidbit of regular NBA business that's been blown up far out of proportion with its significance.

Overall, I think our team could make it work, but with that small of a front court, I'd like to see an upgrade at the 4 still prior to acquiring Gordon. Unless you can lock down the paint, I don't see how you can consistently win. It would be fun as hell to watch though.

Precisely. We have other priorities right now....I mean, having two All-Star caliber (talentwise) shooting guards but no real back-up at center, or not having a reliable rebounder at power forward or a composed point guard to play back-up....It would be cool to see him here, We would be making about 372 points per game ( ) but that's not exactly an upgrade from what we have now, we are already scoring more points than most teams, we need to fill in the blanks to get better, not superimpose talent at the same position.
