Rockets, Eric Gordon reportedly agree to four-year extension”

Late Friday night, the Houston Rockets agreed to terms on a lucrative long-term extension with shooting guard Eric Gordon, according to multiple reports.

Gordon was coming into the final year of the four-year deal he signed with the Rockets in 2016 and is now locked up for the next five years and will make roughly $90 million.

Gordon has been remarkably consistent in his three seasons with the Rockets, averaging 16.8 points and shooting 36 per cent from 3-point range in that span - and posting basically identical numbers from one year to the next. More than 63% of his shots have been from behind the three-point line, and he'll continue to help the Rockets space the floor offensively.

One of the best parts of the Houston Rockets offense over the past couple of years has been Eric Gordon, and early Saturday morning they rewarded the former IN basketball star with a new contract.

Gordon arrived in Houston back in 2016 and is entering the final season of his four-year, $53 million deal, per Spotrac.

Gordon is entering his 12th National Basketball Association season and was the league's sixth man of the year for 2016-17. Gordon will make $14 million this season and then average about $18 million in salary over the following three years.

Houston traded Chris Paul to the Thunder for Russell Westbrook and has now secured Gordon.
