The Orlando Magic power forward, who will become a restricted free agent in July, was asked this question Thursday: “What would be the ideal situation for you in a contract in the offseason?” “Ideal is max,” Gordon answered, referring to a maximum-salary contract. “God, that would be ideal: three letters.” “Here?” the reporter asked, referring to the Magic. “Yeah, definitely here,” Gordon said.
“Hopefully, we just wrap it up with Orlando,” Gordon said. “It would be a beautiful thing to go from one of the worst teams in the league to one of the best teams in the league. It’s a beautiful story. It’s a challenge, and that’s something that I look forward to and I accept: that challenge, along with the teammates that we have here. I think that if we keep building, we have the capability.”
“We face a few free-agent issues, and obviously Aaron would be at the top of that list,” Weltman said. “I can’t comment too deeply on that other than to say Aaron has a lot of potential. He’s a hard worker. And we will have substantive talks with his agent. Whether we can get something done, we’ll see. But I know that he wants to be here and we’d like to keep him.”
Storyline: Aaron Gordon Free Agency
With Aaron Gordon headed toward the uncertainty of restricted free agency, the talented 22-year-old forward could have been playing his final game with the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night – a potential proposition that he not only doubted, but also refused to entertain. “Not even in the least bit,’’ Gordon said. “It’s a short time between the (June 21) draft and when free agents are available (July 1), but at the same time it’s a long time if that makes sense. There’s a lot that can happen within two-to-three months. But (Wednesday), I’m just looking to have fun.’’
