As Steve Nash's days as a Phoenix Sun appear to be ending, the Suns moved aggressively today to land restricted free agent shooting guard Eric Gordon. After welcoming Gordon to Phoenix with a dinner meeting last night, the Suns and Gordon continued their conversation today, and the Arizona Republic's Paul Coro reports tonight that Gordon has agreed to sign an offer sheet for the maximum amount allowed under CBA rules.
"After visiting the Suns, the impression the organization made on me was incredible," Gordon said in a prepared statement. "Mr. Sarver, Lon Babby, Lance Blanks, the front office staff and Coach Gentry run a first-class organization, and I strongly feel they are the right franchise for me. Phoenix is just where my heart is now."
