For instance, no, he would not have to be resigned before a deal is in place. Exact opposite actually. They would come to an agreement first, put it all down on paper, and then everyone would sign. The contract will actually stipulate the terms of the trade. It is an actual "sign and trade" transaction.
Which is also why I say this isn't going around the rules or anything of the such. It's an actual transaction that is purposely allowed.
In short, he will be a restricted free agent that will sign an already agreed upon contract to trade him.
Since Gordon's heart is in Phoenix, I like the following package for him:
We get Lopez, Marshall, Dudley, the Suns 2013 1st round pick (unprotected), & the ability to swap picks in 2014 (we get the higher pick between the teams)
-Dudley is a long term contract, but he can shoot and would fit in perfect with the type of culture Monty/Dell are trying to create.
-Marshall is the pass first PG prospect that you could pair with any of our current guards (Jack/Vasquez/Rivers could play the 2).
-Lopez would be the young back-up big that can split time with J.Smitty at Center, though I am sure Dell will sign another big as well.
-The first round picks would be assets to use for the draft or to trade
Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.
I am sure that Phx would do a trade with us, but what some people are thinking up would completely wipe them out. They get Gordon and lose every player of worth outside of Gortat and the 2 guys they signed.
If you Jimmer it, they will come.
I am not saying get scraps, but they would only be getting better marginably by bringing Gordon in if we made that trade, and we wouldn't gain much either, as we have tons of bench players already.
i mean i get what you are saying, but gortat would start
If you do deal with Houston... Lamb, Montiejunas, Toronto's 1st, and another 1 and 2 from Houston. Call it a day, we get younger with actually more talent to mold, we acquire future assets to select, trade or stash and More cap space, to use in any future signings or trades.
And that's only if there isn't a better deal, but doing any kind of deal with the Suns is out of the question in my opinion, this clown is now trying to hold us hostage, you do not give him what he wants, when he wants. You hold HIS @$$ hostage till you feel like releasing him under his new contract to where you want to send him among the teams offering the best return.
The Reid article in NOLA regarding not being able to trade Gordon has become of the most contested articles by fans I can remember in recent years. My question remains. It this true or not? And I continue to read confusion. Reid certainingly isn't backing off his story. And this board continues to address sign and trade as if it is a possibility. Can anyone cite other NBA sources that would refute Reid's article. Please don't ask me to provide link. I think by now most on this board have read this story.
I'd probably ask for Royce White/Terrance Jones/Patterson as well. I'm greedy.
I would add TJones as well to Lamb, Montajunas, Martin, and a 1st round pick.
Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams
Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston
Phoenix doesn't have much that interests me.

You aren't in the minority. They wouldn't move Gortat.
However, that would be a prerequisite for us, + Marshall and picks. Hence, no deal.
Phoenix gets: Eric Gordon
NO gets: Kendall Marshall, Robin Lopez, Suns & Lakers 1st round picks in 2013
