Report: Eric Gordon to Sign Max Contract with Suns
Now, it has been solidified by ESPN's Chris Broussard that the contract is worth $58 million over four years. The offer sheet is to be signed by Gordon on July 11th.
Gordon, who is just 23 years old, has emerged as a top shooting guard in the league.
Broussard also tweeted on the transaction with a quote from Gordon himself:
Eric Gordon told me this: "I strongly feel (the Suns) are the right franchise for me. Phoenix is just where my heart is.''

Gordon seems to be eager to join the Suns organization and will certainly be a key building block for their future.
This all being said, the New Orleans Hornets still have the chance to match the offer or decide if they want to do a sign-and-trade elsewhere.
However from the looks of it, Gordon wants out and wants to go to Phoenix.
Update: It was reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports via twitter that Hornets plan on matching the offer:
Gordon was the key player in the Chris Paul deal and Hornets have long been resolved to match a max offer sheet and keep him.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) July 4, 2012
Whether he likes it or not, it looks like Gordon will be staying put in New Orleans.
