The drama surrounding the trade deadline just reached a new high.
Orlando Magic star Aaron Gordon has reportedly requested to be shipped from the franchise.
“Aaron Gordon is ready for a relocation, as sources tell The Athletic that he asked Orlando Magic president of basketball operations Jeff Weltman for a trade through his representative in February,” wrote Jared Weiss and Sam Amick of The Athletic.
Gordon, 25, has been in trade rumors for numerous months.
The veteran was the No. 4 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. He’s played for the Magic his whole career.
However, the Magic are having terrible season. As a matter of fact, they’re the No. 14 seed in the Eastern Conference.
As a result, it makes total sense that Gordon would want to take advantage of his prime. The 6-foot-8 forward is putting up 14.7 points, 6.8 boards and 4.2 assists per game this season.
