Hornets Extend Qualifying Offer To Eric Gordon

The Hornets have officially extended a qualifying offer to Eric Gordon, the team announced today. The offer ensures that Gordon will be a restricted free agent and gives the Hornets an opportunity to match any offer sheets he signs.

Because Gordon missed most of the 2011/12 season, he failed to meet the starter criteria defined by the CBA, so his qualifying offer will only be worth $4,001,917. While Gordon could choose to accept the offer and become an unrestricted free agent next summer, it's more likely he'll sign a long-term deal this summer, probably with the Hornets.
