Eric Gordon

Eric Gordon is the prototypical player that theUtah Jazz should be looking for. He is a veteran player with great experience in the postseason that could help the Jazz down the stretch. He has shown that he will has plenty left in the tank — especially from three-point range.

Gordon is in his sixth year with the Houston Rockets but does not fit not their long-term plan anymore. Houston is looking to build around their young core and the is not Gordon.

In 39 games this season, Gordon has proved that he is still one of the best players on the team. He is shooting 46.1% from three-point range while scoring 14.4 points per game.

The Jazz should be running to the phone to acquire a player like this. He would be able to get plenty of opportunities from beyond the arc with guards that can penetrate the zone like Mitchell.
