New Orleans Hornets restricted free agent guard Eric Gordon arrived at Bush Intercontinental Airport on Sunday to meet with the Houston Rockets.
"You can tell they are trying to go after big-time players and they've always been a pretty good organization," Gordon said in an interview with FOX 26 Sports and the Houston Chronicle. "They always have a pretty good team.
"It's very interesting to see what they're doing this summer."
The Rockets are making every effort to land star players like a Dwight Howard.
Gordon would like to think he could help, if he joins the Houston organization.
"I hope so," Gordon said. "As far as attracting players, I don't know where I'm going to end up, but I definitely like to attract players."
Gordon will use the brief visit with the Rockets as a learning experience.
"Just truly hear what their needs for me or to help their team," Gordon said. "Just looking forward to the future. I'm looking forward to being on a good, contending team, just somewhere I can help out.
Gordon came to Houston from Indianapolis where he met earlier in the day with the Indiana Pacers.
Since Gordon is a restricted free agent the Hornets can match any offer he gets and they have said they will do just that.
"You never know," Gordon said. "It's good for them to say that and I already know what they're like over there.
"Just like when I was with the Clippers, I never knew I was going to get traded, so you just never know."
The Clippers traded Gordon to the Hornets in December in the deal that sent guard Chris Paul to Los Angeles.
Gordon said he didn't enter the free agency period hoping to be with a specific team.
"I'm completely open minded," Gordon said. "I'm going to listen to various teams. No one is at the top right now."
Last season Gordon was limited to nine games after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery in February.
In his four years in the NBA he has averaged 18.2 points, 3.3 assists and 2.7 rebounds per game.
"I can defintely help a team win," Gordon said. "I'm all about character. I listen to coaches and vibe off the good team."
Gordon said a number of other teams have expressed interest, but he only named the Phoenix Suns, his next stop.
"It's a good amount of teams, but from here I'm going to go to Phoenix and we'll just see what goes on from there," Gordon said.
"This is my first go round, so it's definitely interesting for me to hop around from team to team figuring out where I would like to end up."
Gordon is enjoying the fact that a number of teams are interested in him.
"It's always a good thing. I try to be one of the better guards out there, trying to helping (my) team."
