You're right that it's an attractive basketball move, but it's just far-fetched for other reasons. Raps don't have any leverage here.

I wouldn't bring it up because the Pacers have a way better shot at landing him than us. And multiple sources (Woj and Simmons come to mind) have stated that there is mutual interest. Gordon grew up in Indiana and played college ball in Indiana, so playing for the Pacers would supposedly be attractive to him. The Pacers also happen to have some of the best financial flexibility in the league, as well as assets to move, depending on the method required to get Gordon (S&T in 2012 or UFA in 2013).
