Desperate to unload Ben Gordon, the Charlotte Bobcats are offering the disgruntled shooting guard to the Toronto Raptors for Andrea Bargnani. ESPN's Marc Stein reported that the Raptors don't appear to be interested in taking on Gordon with a bench full of younger, cheaper wings. The Cats are "determined" to dump Gordon after the guard had several run ins with coach Mike Dunlap. Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Gordon has challenged Dunlap in practice, with a source calling the guard "beyond disrespectful." All-Star Weekend trade rumble: Charlotte's growing determination to move Ben Gordon has presented Toronto w/another Andrea Bargnani suitor — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) February 16, 2013 Sense I get, though, is that Toronto ain't gonna bite on Bargs-for-Gordon deal. Raps have Terrence Ross & Alan Anderson playing well there — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) February 16, 2013 Gordon easier to take back $-wise than Boozer w/one less year on deal, but Raps unlikely to just trade ex-No. 1 overall pick for sake of it — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) February 16, 2013 Photo: LAX.
