The New Orleans Hornets are shopping the oft-injured guard Eric Gordon despite matching an offer sheet for him during the offseason to retain the restricted free agent for four years and $58 million.

Gordon has missed half the season so far because of various injuries and is currently back on the bench because of more knee problems. In his 19 games this season, he is averaging 16.6 points on 40 percent shooting.

The Hornets have reportedly been telling teams that he is on the market, according to a tweet on Wednesday from ESPN's Chris Broussard, but there aren't any interested parties so far, with one day before the trade deadline, because of concerns about the longterm effects of his various injuries.

According to Hornets beat reporter John Reid for NOLA.com, the Hornets would be interested in dealing Gordon to the Golden State Warriors as part of a deal that would send second-year guard Klay Thompson to New Orleans, but the Warriors are reportedly not interested because they believe Thomspon is a budding star. So far this season, Thompson is averaging 16.4 points on 41 percent shooting to go along with 3.9 rebounds.
