Suns Dodge Bullet | October

The latest news out of New Orleans suggests that the Phoenix Suns may have had a bit of unplanned good fortune during the off season. The word comes in the form of an announcement that the Hornets will keep Eric Gordon off the court indefinitely during the 2012-13 season due to a persistent knee issue. Gordon had been the centerpiece of plans for a revamped Suns offense in the wake of Steve Nash's defection to the overstocked LA Lakers.

Gordon was offered a mouth watering $58 million/four-year contract by Phoenix in a move that suggests the Suns check book may finally be open when acquiring quality talent. After much hoopla in Phoenix, New Orleans matched that offer and kept the big name talent. Gordon has scored an average of 18.2 points per game during his four-year pro career but - at least for now - he's a pretty expensive bench warmer that the Suns can do without.
