"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."
Broussard? He tweeted 7 minutes later:
Eric Gordon and the Phoenix Suns agree to a Maximum Offer sheet worth $58 million over 4 years, sources said.— Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) July 4, 2012
Before adding 6 minutes after that:
Eric Gordon told me this: "I strongly feel (the Suns) are the right franchise for me. Phoenix is just where my heart is.''— Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) July 4, 2012
Go ahead. Go back and read the press release again.
Never trust media's pointless source driven rumors when it comes to trades and FA signings. Trust it even less if it comes from ESPN, after said trade/sign is already complete.
