Another big reason the Magic can be optimistic about turning the corner is the evolution of fourth-year forward Aaron Gordon, who is averaging career highs in points (17.5) and rebounds (8.1). “I think what he’s done is he’s finding a rhythm to his game, a pace to his game,” new Magic GM John Hammond said. “I think he’s just scratching the surface, too. Joe Dumars always used to say this: ‘Every offseason you should come back with one little part of your game better. Whatever it is. Just one thing.'”
The improvement comes as Gordon is poised to become a restricted free agent this summer, but Hammond sounds convinced that both Gordon and the Magic will be able to come to terms on a long-term contract keeping him in Orlando. “You look at a guy like that and say, ‘He’s one of those guys as you move forward with, that you got to have,'” Hammond said. “And we feel that way.”
