Under all of the Dwight Howard mess, it seems as though free agent shooting guard Eric Gordon will be finding a new home in Phoenix.

It was originally reported by Paul Coro of azcentral.com that the Suns received a commitment from Gordon to sign a maximum level contract.

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:

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:

Whether he likes it or not, it looks like Gordon will be staying put in New Orleans.
