The Orlando Magic are willing to part ways with forward Aaron Gordon.
However, they have a high asking price for the No. 4 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.
“Aaron Gordon is one of the most talented players who has come up in trade rumors, but the price to obtain him is not cheap,” wrote Michael Scotto of HoopsHype.com. “To pry Gordon from the Magic, it would cost a first-round pick and a good young player, league sources told HoopsHype.”
Gordon, 25, is one of the best players on the Magic.
The seven-year pro is putting up 13.7 points, 6.9 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game this season. However, the Magic are sliding in the standings.
As a matter of fact, the Magic are on a nine-game losing streak. They hold the No. 14 seed in the Eastern Conference with a 13-27 record.
The Magic are also generating trade interest for center Nikola Vucevic, who is having a career campaign. The center is putting up a career-best 24.8 points on top of 11.7 boards and 3.8 assists per game this season.
