The Magic have been listening to offers for Gordon and Fournier for some time, but remain committed to seeing out next season with Vucevic at the helm with the recently extended Jonathan Isaac and Markelle Fultz returning from season-ending injury. Sources say a Jrue Holiday-level trade package could convince them to part ways with Vucevic, but he is considered unavailable by rival executives and appears very likely to stay that way.
Some rival teams believe Orlando can set the tone for this year’s trade market, with Evan Fournier, Terrence Ross and—albeit to a far lesser extent—two-time All-Star Nikola Vucevic each categorized as available. “They’re listening on all those guys,” one assistant general manager said. The name to watch closest of all: Aaron Gordon, considered to be particularly available, and the 25-year-old forward is also eager to welcome a change of scenery, sources said. “They should sell,” an Eastern Conference executive added. “They own their first-round pick. If you can get that pick into the top five, and you’re adding back Jonathan Isaac and Markelle Fultz next season, all of a sudden things could look very different.”
The front office likes him, but the fact remains that the Magic will have an overabundance of power forwards who will be under contract next season: Gordon, Jonathan Isaac, Chuma Okeke and Al-Farouq Aminu (assuming Aminu exercises his player option). Orlando could start Isaac at the four and start Gordon at the three next season, but while that alignment would be lethal defensively, it would be subpar offensively because of its limited floor spacing and shot creation. In addition, in December the Magic signed Isaac to a four-year extension that will run through the 2024-25 season. So it looks like Isaac is Orlando’s long-term choice at power forward, even though Isaac has struggled with injuries. Because Gordon will become an unrestricted free agent in 2022, I think the Magic will try to trade him before next season, most likely to find help on the wings.
Storyline: Aaron Gordon Trade?
Josh Robbins: The Magic have listed Al-Farouq Aminu, Cole Anthony, James Ennis and Evan Fournier as questionable to play Sunday against the Suns in Phoenix. Frank Mason is listed as out for the game, along with Markelle Fultz, Aaron Gordon, Jonathan Isaac and G League participant Karim Mané.
