Houston Rockets guard Eric Gordon has had quite the offseason, with constant rumors swirling that he is likely to be traded as the Rockets look to revamp their roster.
However, despite the rumors, Gordon says he knows his value to the team, and isn’t concerned about the rumors.
“I’m not really worried about that because I know what I am to this team,” Gordon said, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.
“When your name is in a lot of trades that means a lot of teams want you and they’re asking about you. But this team knows what I do and what I bring to the table.”
Gordon added that Rockets general manager Daryl Morey has kept his agent informed regarding trades, and letting him know if any rumors had merit.
“I always knew what status I was in,” Gordon said. “At the end of the day, I just have to continue to play. I’m looking forward to what we’re going to do next year.”
