Rockets officially sign Gordon to contract extension

Rockets guard Eric Gordon shot 45 percent from the field in the playoffs last season.

The Houston Rockets have officially signed shooting guard Eric Gordon to a contract extension, as general manager Daryl Morey announced the move in a news release.

According to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, the extension is for four years and $75.6 million. The final year of the contract is not guaranteed, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

“He gets fourth-year if he makes All-Star team or Rockets win a championship,” Wojnarowski reported.

Gordon, 30, is 6-foot-4 and has been with the Rockets since 2016. He was named NBA Sixth Man of the Year in 2017.

Gordon averaged 16.2 points in 68 regular-season games last season. He increased that average to 17.8 points and shot a career-best 45 percent in 11 playoff games.

The No. 7 overall draft pick in 2008 has also spent time with the Los Angeles Clippers and New Orleans Pelicans.
