Outside of lots of zeroes on a paycheck, why does Eric Gordon want to be in Phoenix? Perhaps it has something to do with family.
Gordon's younger brother, Evan, will be a junior this year at Arizona State University, located in the Phoenix suburb of Tempe. Evan Gordon transferred to ASU from Liberty University and sat out the 2011-12 season.
Of course, as a restricted free agent, much of Gordon's immediate future rests in the hands of the New Orleans Hornets, who are expected to match the Suns' offer of a four-year deal worth $58 million, once the offer becomes official next week. If the teams work out a sign-and-trade deal, however, Gordon could end up in the same city as his younger brother.
