The league has noticed. In an informal survey I conducted among sources on players most deserving of a role change, Gordon was the most common answer. Two executives said he could be used as a transition starter like Pascal Siakam is for the Raptors—and it’s clear why as soon as you see him he sprint up the floor or handle the rock. Another said there’s still some modern Blake Griffin in his game that’s still untapped. To unlock these skills though, the Magic need to start playing faster.
Coach Steve Clifford has tried multiple lineup combinations to find a second unit that can compete. On Monday night in Sacramento, he opened the second quarter with Simmons, Terrence Ross, Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon and Mo Bamba on the floor, but even that quintet struggled, allowing a 14-2 run to the Kings. The Magic never recovered. “It was a problem, and we just struggled to score,” Clifford said. “You have to find a way. I just have to find one. I don’t know how to do it. We’ve got to find a way so we have enough shooting on the floor all the time to create spacing. It’s a problem. There’s just not a lot of room with some of the lineups out there for anybody to have a place to go, and it makes it hard.”
