On the computer coding program in Orlando that he funds through his charitable organization: Aaron Gordon: “My mom (Shelly Davis Gordon) is a computer scientist and she did really well for herself. Coding, it’s not discriminatory at all even though it seems like the demographic of coders is kind of, like, white. So it would be good to see kids with less privilege and more minorities getting into coding programs and really, developing apps that could potentially create a lot of jobs and create careers for themselves and make a lot of money with them and their family. (The program’s impact on kids) has been amazing. It’s been a dream of mine and my mom’s for a long time so for it to come to fruition is beautiful. My mom is choking back tears every day.”
The Pacers discussed a deal with him going to the Orlando Magic before the deadline, according to league sources, as they had strong interest in Aaron Gordon. The Magic pivoted, however, to acquire Markelle Fultz from Philadelphia and kept Gordon. The Pacers have also talked to the Atlanta Hawks about moving up eight spots Thursday to No. 10 but Holiday was requested in such a swap to bolster the Hawks’ backcourt behind Trae Young and that discussion didn’t go anywhere, a league source said.
