04:44 PM ET 04.24 | The Eric Gordon saga ceases to end in New Orleans. After the team signed him to match an offer sheet the guard signed with the Suns last summer, Gordon struggled all season long, battling injuries and only playing 42 games on his new max contract. Gordon shot 40 percent from the floor and averaged 17 points per game, his best games coming toward the end of the year. But with the Pelicans' offseason underway, general manager Dell Demps wasn't going on record to say Gordon would be on the New Orleans roster come next season. "To say if I anticipate him being back ??? I don't know if that???s something I can answer right now, or him not to be back. We're going to sit down and evaluate every situation and opportunity," Demps said.

Good luck finding a team that wants to take on his contract.

You are just now hearing this? The Hornets changed their name several months ago...lol It is a bad, bad name for a team though. But, I hear the reason they changed the name was because the owner of the team has the copywrites to the 'Pelican' name.

Grab Marshal and draft picks from Phoenix & send him packing. Should have never resigned him in the first place. Sometimes the best thing to do is nothing. Play the hand you've been dealt rather than trying to manufacture a hand.
