Sean Deveney of the Sporting News writes that Charlotte Bobcats reserve guard Ben Gordon is available in trade and that the Portland Trail Blazers could use a player with his skillset.

Gordon is a much bigger problem, mostly because he is making $12.4 million, with an option for $13.2 million next year, and isn't as efficient as Hamilton-Gordon averages 12.6 points and 42.8 percent shooting.

The Brooklyn Nets were the hot rumor when it came to Gordon, but that, a source told SN, is entirely off, and Gordon will not be heading to Brooklyn.

Several teams could use his services, like the Indiana Pacers and Portland Trail Blazers, but it's a stiff price to pay for a good-not-great bench guard.
