PELICANS JPGIt won’t take long for Eric Gordon to know if he is a Pelican for the remainder of this season.

The NBA trade deadline is Thursday afternoon. Gordon is a talented guard, but is he worth $30.4 million over the final two seasons of his current contract?

Gordon said it is business as usual for him. “I am not really worried about it,” said Gordon of a possible trade. ” I have been hearing stuff for years. I think I am going to be here and I will be fine.”

Gordon is averaging 15.8 points a game. He has played in 49 games, second most on the club.
