05:56 AM ET 02.21 | Speculation swirled Wednesday, though it may not amount to much in the case of Hornets guard Eric Gordon. [It] seemed unlikely he would be moved by Thursday's trading deadline because of the size of his contract and his continued absence from the court in the second of back-to-back games. The fact that Gordon did not play in Wednesday night's 105-100 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers would likely tend to scare off any potential interest from other NBA teams who might have concerns about his current and long-term health. And Gordon's four-year, $58 million contract could also dissuade suitors because of the more penal luxury tax in place in the new collective bargaining agreement. One league source Wednesday night said of Gordon, "nobody wants him."

Ummmm.....didn't NO ownership vote in favor of the new CB agreement? I'm pretty sure they did......and now they're stuck with this contract.

Just more proof that David's trade nix hurt this team! They would have had more pieces to deal with, and wouldn't be paying big money to a player who has not earned it so far....so...blame David Stern Hornets!

LOL yeah NO reached for Gordon when they should have let him walk. I think pride got the best of them instead of making a rational decision. If they would have let him walk they basically traded CP3 for Aminu and future pick

He has either been hurt or discontented during the majority of his career. He's one of those players, like Montae Ellis, that is good at basketball, but not good for a basketball team.

I thought this was going to be about Ben Gordon. Nobody wants him either.

I disagree. Even assuming Gordon fails to get healthy, this team is set up far better for the future than a team centered around Luis Scola...
