Knicks point guard Derrick Rose has had Rockets shooting guard Eric Gordon on his radar. Now, with the Dec. 15 trade marker past, Knicks president Leon Rose does, too. Gordon is on a long list of potentially available players the Knicks have talked about internally, according to a source. The 3-point shooting guard isn’t a fit for the rebuilding Rockets, as he turns 33 on Christmas Day.

McBride hits a pair of threes, but the thing that will put him close to Thibodeau’s heart is that he is a very tenacious defender. Watching him and Eric Gordon go at each other, tough. – 8:41 PM

More on this storyline

When healthy, Gordon is one of the league’s best bench scorers as he approaches 34 years old at the end of December. “I think Houston will definitely look to move Gordon,” an NBA executive said. “I think he can add a lot of value to a team trying to make a run. I just think his contract is a little rich.” -via HoopsHype / October 24, 2021
