Aaron Gordon averaged 12.4 points and eight rebounds last season as a true freshman for Arizona. The athletic 6-foot-9, 225-pounder had a 39-inch vertical leap at the draft combine. He has been fine-tuning his jumper with basketball trainer Charlie Max Torres, who also trains Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson. Gordon, 18, is receiving consideration from the Orlando Magic (pick No. 4) and is not expected to get past the Sacramento Kings with the eighth selection, sources said. "If and when I reach my full potential, I think I will be better than everybody [in this draft]," Gordon said. "I think I will have an edge." Yahoo! Sports
