On the ripple effect of getting the No. 1 pick (specifically RFA Eric Gordon), New Orleans coach Monty Williams said, "Since Eric came to New Orleans, even before he hurt his knee, he’s always expressed to me that he was comfortable being in New Orleans. He intimated to me that this was the kind of team, the kind of coaching, that he wanted. That’s all I can go off of...(But) when you get a No. 1 pick, that’s an enticement not only to Eric but other free agents around the league."
