You never want to wish an injury on a player, but Michael Kidd-Gilchrist‘s broken hand might be a blessing in disguise.

The injury to MKG left a gaping hole at the 2 guard position for Charlotte–a position where they were thin in to begin with. With nowhere else to turn, rookie head coach Steve Clifford had to turn to veteran Ben Gordon.

Now I hate to use the term “washed up” when describing a player,  but Gordon is as close as you can get. The former Sixth Man of the Year has seen his career go on a downward spiral after he left the Chicago Bulls to join the Detroit Pistons in 2009. After averaging 20.7 points per game in the 2008-09 season, the 10th-year man out of UConn has yet to top 15 points a game.  Not only that, but Gordon quickly found himself out of the rotation with new head coach Steve Clifford. He fell so out of rotation that he only played in one time in the team’s first 16 games.

Well, with the injury to MKG, Gordon has a chance to prove himself. He has a been a little rusty, as expected, but he has picked it up over the last three games averaging 7.6 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in just 24 minutes off the bench. If he can regain his form, Gordon can prove to be a valuable trade asset once MKG comes back. Here are three teams that could be interested in him.
