Ben Gordon Looking for 6 Years, $80 Million?

Too funny ..... biggest mistake Gordon made was not accepting the Bulls offer from last season.

Quote:
Gordon signed a one-year contract worth $6.4 million last season after turning down a five-year $50 million dollar offer from the team.

Gordon has said in the past that he is seeking Luol Deng type money, who signed with Chicago for six years and a guaranteed $71 million dollars that could reach $80 million with incentives.

It is unlikely that the Bulls will make such an offer because of luxury tax penalties.

no one is going to offer him anything close to that. if he had won the series against boston and had been the deciding factor in that win then maybe, but considering that they lost and he didn't exactly come up huge in the deciding game (33 points, but on 7 of 23 from the field), he has no chance. add to that his reputation as being inconsistent and perhaps a bit selfish and you have a bad recipie for getting big bucks, especially in a bad economy.

Ben Gordon is in for a LOOOONG summer if thats the money he's expecting.
he is a one-trick pony who offers nothing other than scoring.
he cant rebound, isnt a passer, and is small.
teams wont be throwing money at this guy, especially after seeing his most recent chuckfest vs Boston on Saturday.

theres no way he gets over 10 mil, no way... not with this economy and teams tightening their checkbooks... he shouldve never passed up on the bulls offer last year.

If nothing else he provides a good example of how BC would like Bosh and maybe Marion to look at their futures economically. Sometimes it pays to think a little smaller in terms of the paychecks and have the added certainty in other areas.

He'll get 8-9 mil at the most. Why would any team want him.He'' prolly end up going to Europe and then come back in 2010 after he understands that he'll be recieveing a pay cut

europe is team oriented, he won't like siting on the bench and they won't like him chucking the ball everytime he has it
plus, they won't pay him a lot
