Aaron Gordon will ‘most likely be traded’ in the offseason, according to an Eastern Conference executive.

The Orlando Magic attempted to trade Gordon, who has been averaging 14.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 58 games, before the February 6 trade deadline.

“They were really trying to deal him before the deadline but they weren’t getting the assets back they wanted. It will be easier to move that contract when it’s only got two years left. He’s probably the most likely big name to be traded. He’s a good gamble—he is only 24,” the executive said, per Sean Deveney of Forbes.
