06:01 PM ET 12.21 | New Orleans Hornets coach Monty Williams has a message for fans that might be upset at Eric Gordon for how he handled his restricted free agency. "Our city has been a city of second chances," Williams said. "This situation should be the same way. Eric said some things. But if you polled most of the people in our city about the things they said at [age] 23, I'm sure they had some regrets. We want our city to embrace him because that's who we are." Gordon was outspoken about his desire to play elsewhere this summer, and he only returned to the Hornets because they matched a four-year, $58 million offer sheet from the Phoenix Suns.
