Rockets Extend Contract of Eric Gordon
Posted: September 4, 2019 -- 12:34 p.m. CT
Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey today announced that the team has signed guard Eric Gordon to a contract extension which runs through the 2023-24 season.
The contract extension is for 4 years, $76 million. The 4th year of his contract extension is worth $20.9 million; however, it is not guaranteed unless the Rockets win an NBA championship or Gordon is an All-Star.
Gordon has 1 year left on his current contract which he signed in the summer of 2016.
In three seasons with Houston, Gordon has averaged 16.8 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists while recording the sixth-most 3-pointers made (680) of any player over that span. The Rockets have won 75% of the games in which Gordon has scored 20-plus points (52-17 mark).
Gordon started 53 games for the Rockets last season after being named Sixth Man of the Year in 2016-17 and finishing as runner-up for the award in 2017-18. He shot 43.1% from 3-point range post All-Star break last season and 40.0% in the playoffs.

He hit 200-plus 3-pointers while playing fewer than 2,200 minutes in each of the past two seasons, joining J.J. Redick as the only players in NBA history with multiple seasons doing so.
