RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Gordon enters 2013-14 coming off surgery on his ankle, but he is expected to be 100 percent by the start of the season. Despite playing in only 42 games and not playing in the second game of back-to-back sets last season, Gordon was the team's leading scorer with 17.0 points per game. Everyone knows Gordon is a talented player, but his issue has been staying healthy. He hasn't played in more than 62 games since his rookie season with the Clippers, when he played 78. He's played fewer than 60 games in each of his last three seasons. When healthy, Gordon will be the starting shooting guard and a threat to pour in 20-plus points on a given night.

2012-13

Gordon did little to shed his injury-prone label in 2011-12, missing all but nine of 66 games. Acquired by the Hornets in the Chris Paul trade last offseason, Gordon was able to provide only a glimpse of how he would fit in with his new team due to only playing in nine games. Gordon tried in vain to exit New Orleans this offseason, signing a max offer sheet with the Suns and essentially pleading with the Hornets not to match the offer. Alas, the Hornets matched the offer sheet, and he’ll return to a suddenly more exciting Hornets squad that includes No. 1 draft pick Anthony Davis. Ryan Anderson, the league’s reigning Most Improved Player, also joined the team in a sign-and-trade deal. Even if not completely healthy last season, Gordon wasn’t far off his career per-game numbers, averaging 20.6 points, 3.4 assists, 2.8 rebounds, and 1.4 steals. Like many of the shooting guards profiled, much of Gordon’s skill set revolves around scoring the basketball, but he could take on more of combo guard type of role if first-rounder Austin Rivers isn’t immediately up to the task at point guard. As a result, Gordon could see his assists climb, especially now that he’s playing alongside the athletic Davis. Gordon will likely come at a discount on draft day given his injury history, but if healthy, he should have ample opportunity to showcase his scoring ability given the dearth of established perimeter scorers on the roster.

2011-12

Gordon has quietly become one of the best shooting guards in fantasy, but he’s struggled to stay healthy the last two seasons, making his prospects for this season somewhat hard to gauge. Gordon’s efficiency as a jump shooter and talent for getting to the charity stripe have made him more consistent on a game-to-game basis, and his strong shooting percentages from the floor and the line are an unusually valuable combo. Now in New Orleans, Gordon should be the team's unquestioned first option on offense and could be among the league leaders in scoring and threes.

2010-11

It's hard to say that Gordon was a fantasy asset last year. In standard, 12x13 leagues, he was south of the league median in terms of overall value. And not only that, but he had almost exactly the same line as in 2008-09, his rookie season. Points (16.9 last year, 16.1 the year before), threes (1.9, 1.7), assist (3.0, 2.8): if the showed improvements, it was likely due to the commensurate increase in minutes (36:00, 34:17) as opposed to anything else. Anyone who took him 50th or so overall, thinking that a 20-year-old with legitimate scoring ability was sure to break out – well, that was a disappointed fantasy owner. Of course, the fact remains: Gordon is still only a 21-year-old, and he still has legitimate scoring ability. As for the likelihood of a serious breakout, that would require probably four or five more shots or a sudden capacity for shot-blocking.

2009-10

Like many other rookies in the NBA, Gordon spent his first few months in the league getting adjusted to the faster pace of the game as well as the increased physicality and talent of his competitors. He was used sparingly as a three-point specialist in November and averaged just 7.8 points in 19 minutes. A trade in late-November saw Cuttino Mobley jettisoned to New York, which vaulted Gordon into the starting lineup and called for him to play big minutes for the first time. Gordon embraced the added responsibility and flourished as the season progressed – he dazzled during the 51-game stretch from January on, averaging 19.8 points, 3.4 assists, 2.7 rebounds, 2.0 treys, 1.0 steal, 0.5 blocks and 2.5 turnovers on 46.1-percent shooting from the field and 86.8-percent from the line. Those numbers put him just outside the top-50 in per-game value. With the Clippers finally rid of Zach Randolph, things are looking up for the team and consequently for Gordon’s outlook this season. The biggest jump in a player’s value is traditionally between his rookie and sophomore seasons, so Gordon could be in store for a big year after finishing in the top-75 last season.

The short-to-medium term plan for seventh-overall pick Gordon is to serve as an apprentice under Cuttino Mobley and Ricky Davis until he’s ready to step into the starting backcourt. A 6-4 guard with an outstanding outside shot and the strength to pinball his way through the lane, Gordon was the leading scorer in the Big Ten last season despite playing through a wrist injury and seemed very badly affected by the controversy surrounding coach Kelvin Sampson’s departure. Before the draft, several teams were reportedly considering Gordon as a potential point guard. No danger of that with the Clippers, who have Baron Davis and now Jason Williams to run the show. That will free Gordon to play his more natural off-guard position, which should speed his development.
