New Orleans Hornets guard Eric Gordon said he is waiting to learn whether NBA commissioner David Stern will grant him a contract extension before Wednesday's deadline.
Gordon's agent, Rob Pelinka, has engaged in recent contract talks with the Hornets' front office, but hasn't received an official offer. Gordon told Yahoo! Sports on Monday night he was informed by Hornets general manager Dell Demps that Stern must decide whether to extend an offer.
Since the NBA owns the Hornets, the final decision (like the infamous Chris Paul trade attempts) fall in the hands of the league office.
Gordon has played in just two games for New Orleans since the trade with the L.A. Clippers that was approved involving All-Star point guard Chris Paul. A knee injury has kept Gordon out of action since Jan. 6.
A budding star as a shooting guard at age 23, Gordon's 20-plus points per game is sorely missed in the line lineup for a Hornets squad that has lost nine straight games.
