Orlando Magic youngster Aaron Gordon has been the talk of the league, as rumors and speculation regarding his next destination continue to swirl throughout the NBA community.
And while Gordon himself laid out why he's ready for a split from Orlando, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported just a short while ago that the guy may be having second-thoughts...
“You mention that trade request that was made weeks ago. Well, I’m told in the last 24-48 hours, Aaron Gordon has had some second thoughts about that trade request, about whether he actually really wants to leave Orlando. But the Magic, their front office, they’ve forged ahead in trying to find a deal for Gordon.
Whatever Aaron Gordon wants right now, I know that Orlando and their front office, they’re gonna do what’s best for them, and that may very well be taking the best package they can.”
As a solid two-way player in his mid-twenties, Gordon has the potential to change the tide of the NBA's hierarchy. He might be that one last piece a team needs to put themselves over the top.
For others, he'll help take them a step further up the ladder.
This season, the young forward is averaging 14.6 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 4.3 assists per game on 44.2% shooting. Whether or not he decides he wants to stay in Orlando, he'll likely be wearing a different jersey by the end of the week.
