The Orlando Magic tried hard to trade Aaron Gordon at the trade deadline, according to Sean Deveney of Heavy.com.

“Golden State was among the teams with whom the Magic discussed a Gordon trade. So were the Timberwolves.

As one source told Heavy.com, ‘They were trying, and they tried hard to get something done with him at the deadline. All that gets brought back into focus once the season is over and you have a good idea what the market is for him,” Deveney reported.

Gordon, who signed a four-year, $80 million contract in the summer of 2018, has appeared in 48 games for the Magic this season. He’s averaging 13.9 points, 7.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists.
