NBA Trade Rumors: Will Eric Gordon be the Rockets’ veteran presence this season?

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports With the potential that Eric Gordon gets traded, the Rockets should dedicate a roster spot to a reliable vet via NBA Free Agency. As trade rumors continue to circulate around 14-year vet, Eric Gordon, the question of “who will be the old head on the Houston Rockets?” starts to percolate. Gordon may very well still be on the roster come opening night, but in the case he isn’t, it’s important that Houston finds room to keep some experience on the end of the bench.

Even though Usman Garuba didn't have the opportunity last year to show if he will be able to contribute in the...

Or an eminently reasonable 3pm if you are in PST.). We’ve already seen James Harden opt out of $47 million. Which is...
