After the New Orleans Hornets matched the Suns' offer to Eric Gordon, Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby issued a statement of where the Suns now stand in free agency. Check out what he had to say below.

"We have been notified that the New Orleans Hornets have matched our Offer Sheet with Eric Gordon, as is their right under the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

"While we are disappointed that Eric will not be a Sun at this time, we have no regrets in doing all that we could under the rules to bring him to Phoenix.

"Once Eric passes his physical in New Orleans, our full cap room will be restored and we will move forward in free agency.

In the meantime, we are on track to pursue our plans."
