SHARE Gordon, contract status still on hold

Ben Gordon remained unsigned Wednesday, so he sat out for a third practice. Gordon, a restricted free agent, has until the league deadline of 11 p.m. tonight to sign the team’s one-year qualifying offer of $6.4 million. Gordon has been monitoring the team’s two-a-day sessions from the sideline.

General manager John Paxson and Gordon’s agent, Raymond Brothers, have been negotiating again since Monday. But a long-term deal, and indications are one is not currently on the table, remains a long shot as the two sides have been at an impasse for a year.
