Dario Saric, Cam Payne and a 2023 first-round pick for Eric Gordon seems like an ideal trade for both teams. Payne is guaranteed for only $2M in 2023-24, but you could possibly rehab his value and move him for a ’23 expiring. – 9:55 PM

We’ll focus on a pair of players Daryl Morey is intimately familiar with from his time in Houston, Eric Gordon and P.J. Tucker: Keep an eye on the Houston Rockets, they’ve already done one deal this offseason. Look for a little bit Eric Gordon sweepstakes in play. A couple of teams I’ve heard interested: the Philadelphia 76ers and the Phoenix Suns, Chris Paul looking for a potential reunion with his former teammate there. -via Philly Voice / June 21, 2022
