Plays Eric Gordon pitches to the Suns

Check out Eric Gordon’s best moments with the Clippers last season as he agreed to a deal with the Phoenix Suns.

Free agent Eric Gordon has agreed to a two-year deal — including a player option — with the Phoenix Suns, his agents, Aaron Mintz and CAA Sports’ Stephen Human, told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Sunday.

Sources told ESPN’s Brian Windhorst that the deal is worth $6 million over the course of the two years.

Gordon, 34, became a free agent after the Los Angeles Clippers opted out of his $21 million contract last week. The move saved the team over $100 million in an expected tax bill.

Gordon had a huge interest in the market after he was waived and was one of the great surviving free agents. He averaged 11 points and 42.3% 3-point percentage in 22 regular season games with the Clippers, who acquired him from Houston at the February trade deadline.

The Suns reconfigured their roster in the opening days of free agency, adding several new depth players around their core of Devin Booker, Kevin Durant, Bradley Beal and Deandre Ayton. Gordon gives them another kick-and-ball player with ample experience in the playoffs.

It’s a complete step up from 2012 when Gordon signed a four-year, nearly $60 million bid sheet in Phoenix before being met by New Orleans.
