ESPN's Chris Broussard tweeted out the news of the massive offer that the Phoenix Suns and shooting guard Gordon agreed to:

Gordon, a restricted free agent who spent last season with the New Orleans Hornets after being a part of the Chris Paul trade, can officially sign this offer sheet on July 11, and at that point, the Hornets will have three days to match the offer.

In a prepared statement passed along by Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic, Gordon offered up the following:
