Former New Orleans Pelicans guard Eric Gordon agreed to terms Saturday on a four-year, $53 million deal with the Houston Rockets, per The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski and the Houston Chronicle‘s Jonathan Feigen.

Gordon, 27, has had a rough few years in New Orleans, mainly due to injuries and the fact that he signed with the Phoenix Suns in 2012, only to see the Hornets match the restricted free agent’s max offer sheet. Once thought to be a potential franchise cornerstone alongside Anthony Davis, Gordon never played in more than 64 games in a season for the Pelicans and was inconsistent when he was healthy.

This past season, he appeared in just 45 games, averaging 15.2 points, 2.7 assists and 1.0 steals per contest
