Eric Gordon, who just became a free agent, agreed to sign a two-year contract with the Phoenix Suns worth 6 million US dollars (180 million Taiwan dollars). The second year is a player option. The Suns who made an offer 11 years ago finally waited until Eric Gordon joined.

Eric Gordon’s agents, Aaron Mintz and Steven Heumann of CAA Sports, told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski that the two sides have agreed to a two-year deal worth $6 million, according to sources.

Eric Gordon, 34, became a free agent after the Los Angeles Clippers refused to guarantee his $21 million contract for next season, saving the Clippers more than one million dollars on their tax bill.

After Eric Gordon became a free agent, many teams showed obvious interest. He is the top free agent in the market. In the 22 regular games played for the Clippers this year, he averaged 11 points per game and made 3-pointers. With a rate of 423%, Eric Gordon was traded from the Houston Rockets to the Clippers before the trade deadline in February this year.

The Suns rebuilt their opening lineup after the opening of the free agency market, helping the main players Devin Booker, Kevin Durant, Bradley Beal and Deandre Ayton, etc. Eric Gordon will be another shooter and ball-handler for the Suns, and has valuable postseason game experience.

The Suns offered Eric Gordon a four-year contract of nearly US$60 million (1.83 billion Taiwan dollars) as early as 2012, but at that time the New Orleans Pelicans decided to match the contract and kept Eric Gordon. After 11 years, Eric Gordon circled around and finally joined the sun.
