Aaron Gordon has made a trade request to the Orlando Magic weeks ago, however the latest reports suggest that the high-flying forward seems to re-consider his request.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, who made an appearance in the Lowe Post podcast, ahead of Thursday’s trade deadline, Gordon seems content staying put, at least for now.
(via CBS Sports):
“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.”
Gordon’s change of heart wouldn’t prevent the Magic from pursuing a deal for the dynamic forward, especially if they are able to get future assets in the process.
