Congratulations, You Are Chris Broussard's Source

Perpetual late-comer Chris Broussard hasn't had a good evening with his "sources." Earlier this evening, he was comically slow on the news that Deron Williams had re-upped with the Brooklyn Nets to the tune of five years and $100 million. How did we know Williams had agreed to stay with the Nets? Williams tweeted it himself.

Then, just a little while ago, the Phoenix Suns announced they had signed Hornets guard Eric Gordon to a four-year, $58 million offer sheet. How did we all find out? Gordon released a prepared statement:

"After visiting the Suns, the impression the organization made on me was incredible," Gordon said in a prepared statement. "Mr. Sarver, Lon Babby, Lance Blanks, the front office staff and Coach Gentry run a first-class organization, and I strongly feel they are the right franchise for me. Phoenix is just where my heart is now."

That was posted at 7:20 pm Pacific time. This is Broussard seven minutes later, from his iPad:

Congratulations, You Are Chris Broussard's Source

Six minutes after that, he tweets what is portrayed as a personal note from Gordon:

Congratulations, You Are Chris Broussard's Source

Hmm. Let's go back and take another look at that prepared statement Gordon released through the Suns:

"After visiting the Suns, the impression the organization made on me was incredible," Gordon said in a prepared statement. "Mr. Sarver, Lon Babby, Lance Blanks, the front office staff and Coach Gentry run a first-class organization, and I strongly feel they are the right franchise for me. Phoenix is just where my heart is now."
