Report: Orlando Magic rejected Portland’s trade offer for Aaron Gordon

Aaron Gordon Orlando Magic

On Monday night, the Portland Trail Blazers acquired talented veteran Robert Covington.

According to a Tuesday report, the Blazers could have gone in a different direction entirely if they had put more assets on the table. Their offer for forward Aaron Gordon was reportedly turned down by the Orlando Magic.

Based on the report that Gordon was the Blazers’ top target, it stands to reason that the Magic simply asked for a little too much compared to the Houston Rockets’ price for Covington.

Last season, Gordon averaged 14.4 points, 7.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game.

Covington averaged 12.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game.

Both are talented players that offer a lot. In the end, it seems the Blazers were happy to opt for Covington over Gordon given the difference in price.

Though this deal is done, there is still a high expectation that Gordon will ultimately be moved. Only time will tell where the high-flying forward will suit up next.
