For the past few days, Hornets guard Eric Gordon has been focused on the business of basketball, touring the country, visiting potential suitors for his restricted free-agent services and aiming to maximize his earning potential. He did that by signing an offer sheet with the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night. Beginning today, Gordon just gets down to business. Along with a group of fellow NBA hopefuls and USA Basketball alums, Gordon will join the likes of Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Kevin Durant in vying for a spot on the final roster that will represent the U.S. in the London Olympic Games next month.
