Yahoo! Sports reports that the Bobcats are more likely to explore the possibility of trading the guard after an incident with head coach Mike Dunlap.
According to the report, Dunlap was trying to speak to the team prior to its game against the Celtics on Monday, but Gordon kept dribbling a ball. Gordon apparently also told his head coach that he need to “humble himself.”
Adding to the mess was the fact that general manager Rod Higgins was also in attendance, and one source mentioned in the Yahoo! report that the entire thing was “beyond disrespectful.”
The Bobcats didn’t suspend Gordon, though, but there might be a reason for that. The club didn’t take action because they reportedly didn’t want to lower his trade stock heading into next week’s trade deadline.
