Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports joined Chris Mannix on the Chris Mannix Show to begin discussing free agency and said the executives around the league largely expect the Magic to match any offer for Gordon — even a max offer sheet. “I think both teams are aware they need to go to max numbers for them,” Charania says about the impending free agency for Aaron Gordon and Zach LaVine. “But the question is will they make them go get a sheet. The sentiment I’ve gotten is if Zach LaVine goes and gets a max, we have too much invested in them. Same with Aaron Gordon.”
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.”
