NBA rumors: Sixers pursue Eric Gordon; Goran Dragic likely to sign with Mavericks

Philadelphia 76ers are pursuing a trade deal for Houston Rockets sharpshooting guard/forward Eric Gordon, per Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Gordon will be the potential third familiar face president Daryl Morey brings to Philadelphia.

It’s already reported PJ Tucker has a deal in place with the Philadelphia 76ers after opting out of his current contract with the Miami Heat. Tucker was an important piece of the Houston Rockets when Morey reigned as the head of the front office.

Morey tried to acquire Gordon in a three-team trade on draft day, and he will continue to pursue the veteran shooting guard this offseason, per Pompey. Gordon can offer versatility for the Sixers but first they will need to offer a package to satisfy the Houston’s demands.

Goran Dragic to Dallas?

A potential Jalen Brunson’s exit will bring Goran Dragic closer to a deal with the Dallas Mavericks, NBA insider Marc Stein reports. A potential deal will bring together Luka Doncic with his Slovenia NT teammate and mentor Goran Dragic.

Dragic appeared in 21 games and averaged 7.5 points, 4.1 assists and 3.1 rebounds, while shooting 37.7 percent from the floor and 25.4 percent from beyond the arc. He has a strong resume and if he remains healthy, he can be a valuable piece to a contender.

According to Knicks beat report Fred Katz of The Athletic (h/t clutchpoints), New York is exploring trade options on All-Star Julius Randle. In a recent episode of the Callin Shots¬†podcast, Katz confirmed that the team has been active regarding Randle’s future.

Randle signed a 4 year / $117,089,280 contract with the New York Knicks last offseason, including $106,444,800 guaranteed, and an annual average salary of $29,272,320. He had a tough 2021-22 season with the team after his 2020-21 breakout campaign.
