With the NBA trade deadline right around the corner, the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics are among the teams interested in trading for Aaron Gordon.
NBA fans all over the country are counting down the days, as the trade deadline arrives on March 25 and some big names are potentially going to be headed to new homes. One player to definitely keep an eye on is no question Orlando Magic standout Aaron Gordon.
According to The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor, five teams have expressed interest in trading for the high-flyer before the deadline. Per O’Connor, both the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics are among the teams hoping to make a move.
Magic star Aaron Gordon could see himself traded to a new team in the coming days
Thus far this season, Gordon is averaging 14.8 points and 6.8 rebounds per game. It’s been a year to forget for the Magic, though, as the team is 14-28 on the campaign and their hopes of making it to the postseason are basically non-existent.
Because of this, a true contender could put together an impressive package to try and land Gordon. With Orlando clearly rebuilding, it could be wise for them to try and get some draft picks in return for Gordon. With that being said, the Warriors and Celtics aren’t the only two teams who have interesting in dealing for him.
O’Connor is reporting that the Portland Trail Blazers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Houston Rockets are also in the hunt to potentially get something done here. With so many suitors for Gordon, it really could be a matter of time before someone makes Orlando an offer they can’t refuse.
With the trade deadline so close, we’ll have our answer on where Gordon will finish out the season soon. All signs are pointing to him leaving Orlando, though.
