Hornets restricted free agent Eric Gordon agreed to a four-year, $58 million contract offer from the Phoenix Suns late Tuesday night.

Gordon will sign the offer sheet July 11, and the Hornets will have three days to match it.

New Orleans General Manager Dell Demps has said since the free agency period began last weekend that Gordon remains a priority to be re-signed, and sources say the Hornets will match the Suns' offer.

In a prepared statement Gordon said: "After visiting the Suns, the impression the organization made on me was incredible. (Owner) Mr. (Robert) Sarver, (President) Lon Babby, (General Manager) Lance Blanks, the front office staff and Coach (Alvin) 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.''
