Guard Eric Gordon will visit the Indiana Pacers on Sunday, the first day of free agency, according to league sources.
Gordon, a restricted free agent with the New Orleans Hornets, will then visit the Houston Rockets on Monday and the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday.
While Gordon hopes to make his decision before his first Team USA practice in Las Vegas on July 6, he also has a meeting scheduled with Portland on July 5 and he may meet with Charlotte and Dallas, sources said.
Gordon is seeking a max contract that will pay him $58 million over four years, and sources say some teams are willing to make that offer.
After drafting star forward Anthony Davis on Thursday, the Hornets are hoping to solidify their young nucleus by re-signing Gordon.
