Aaron Gordon said a max contract would be his ideal scenario for free agency this summer.
"Ideal is max. That would be ideal," Gordon said. "Three letters. ... Definitely here." As a restricted free agent, the Magic can match all offers on Gordon after a career year in basically every category for counting stats. He started off on fire to start the season, but wasn't able to keep it going. Plus, he really needs to increase his performance at the charity stripe to be an early-round guy. Apr 12 - 2:27 PM

Date:

Aaron Gordon was rested for the second half of Wednesday's game, finishing with 11 points, three rebounds and one block in 12 minutes.

That's a wrap for AG's 2017-18 season. He opened the game 3-of-3 from deep but Orlando has no incentive to play their key starters, so they quickly sat Gordon and Nikola Vucevic in favor of Khem Birch and Marreese Speights. Gordon couldn't maintain his torrid early-season production and he struggled as the focal point of defenses when Vuc was injured, but he's still finishing with middle-round value despite poor percentages (43.3% FGs, 69.8% FTs). That'll be an area to watch throughout the offseason.

Aaron Gordon (sore right calf) returned from a one-game absence on Sunday vs. the Raptors, scoring 16 points on 6-of-12 shots.

He played 27 minutes and showed no signs of being limited, adding three assists, two rebounds, three steals, one block and two triples. Gordon and Nikola Vucevic were surprise scratches in their last game, and with Orlando doing their best to slide in the standings, they may sit one or both of these guys on Monday vs. the Bucks on the second night of a back-to-back.
Apr 8 - 8:42 PM

Aaron Gordon (sore right calf) and Nikola Vucevic (low back tightness) will play on Sunday vs. the Raptors.

Even though both players were listed as probable and are fine, don't be surprised if they sit out on Monday vs. the Bucks on the second night of a back-to-back. The NBA in April is madness. Mario Hezonja and Jamel Artis both lose value with Gordon back.
Apr 8 - 4:40 PM

Aaron Gordon (sore right calf) and Nikola Vucevic (low back tightness) are listed as probable for Sunday's game vs. the Raptors.

Gordon and Vooch were surprise scratches for the Magic on Friday, as Orlando attempts to tank its way towards more ping pong balls. However, they will both be back in action Sunday. No word yet on their availability for Monday's game vs. Milwaukee, which is the second night of a back-to-back. Mario Hezonja and Jamel Artis will see their playing time reduced with Gordon back in the mix.
Apr 7 - 11:30 AM

Aaron Gordon (sore right calf) and Nikola Vucevic (low back tightness) both will not play Friday vs. Charlotte.

Well, it's tank season and the Magic are going to get silly with some lineups today. It's certainly possible Gordon is out for additional time, so cutting is an option. Mario Hezonja and Jamel Artis should be looking at more minutes at the forward spots, and both are options.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Gordon, Vucevic and all other inactive/non-rotation members off the floor, Mario Hezonja is averaging 0.96 fantasy points per minute which at his current price makes him a strong DFS target industry wide. Shelvin Mack picks up +4.9% usage and also adds a +0.16 FPPM bump, so he is also on the GPP radar.
Apr 6 - 5:26 PM

Aaron Gordon scored 20 points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes during a 105-100 win against the Mavs on Wednesday.

He scored 16 points in the first quarter alone, but Gordon wasn't out there down the stretch in this close game. That was obviously by design, but the Magic still couldn't earn the loss. This tough win moved the Magic down to No. 5 in the lottery, and they're only 0.5 games up on the Kings for No. 6. Don't be surprised to see Gordon get a night off in the last week of the season.
Apr 4 - 10:21 PM

Aaron Gordon hit just 3-of-15 shots and missed all eight of his 3-pointers for seven points, four rebounds, three assists and two steals in 28 minutes of Tuesday's 97-73 win over the Knicks.

He tried to go off tonight, but his shot wasn't cooperating. Gordon's shot is a mess right now, as he hit just 13-of-48 over his last three games. Maybe he'll break out of the shooting funk on Wednesday against the lowly Mavericks.
Apr 3 - 10:15 PM

Aaron Gordon finished with 10 points, seven rebounds, three assists, a steal and a blocked shot across 37 minutes Sunday in Atlanta.

Gordon has reached 10 or more points in 52 games this season. He continues to be a reliable source of offense on a team that isn't very good. The point total wasn't great, but he has been sharp in each of his six games since returning from injury. Gordon is averaging 16.3 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game in his six outings since March 20.
Apr 1 - 8:55 PM

Aaron Gordon had a monster line against the Suns during a 105-99 win on Saturday, scoring 29 points with 11 rebounds, eight assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

Hello, Mr. Gordon. Those dimes were a career high and he did a little bit of everything on offense, including getting to the basket. He's been a stat-stuffer since his return to the lineup, averaging 18.3 points, 9.3 boards, 4.3 dimes, 2.0 steals, 1.0 blocks and 2.0 treys in those three. If you stashed him while he was hurt, you have to be happy about it.
Mar 24 - 10:15 PM

Aaron Gordon made 4-of-15 from the field for 10 points with 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the 76ers on Thursday.

The good news is that he's healthy and he has shown plenty of highlight-reel hops. The bad news is Gordon is back to one of his sloppy runs with poor shot selection. He should still be starting in all leagues.
Mar 22 - 9:59 PM

Aaron Gordon was finally back in action on Tuesday and had 16 points, six rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He'd missed five straight games with his concussion and spent a lot of time playing alongside Jonathan Isaac tonight, and Isaac was also sharp with 10 points, five rebounds, five steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers. Coach Frank Vogel said after the game he envisions the duo playing alongside each other and being elite defensively in the future, but maybe the future is now.
Mar 20 - 9:25 PM

Coach Frank Vogel said that Aaron Gordon (concussion) will start Tuesday vs. the Raptors.

We knew Gordon had been cleared and would return to action vs. Toronto. Now we have confirmation that Gordon will be in the starting lineup after missing Orlando's previous five contests. We still don't have word on any minutes restrictions. Mario Hezonja and Jonathan Isaac will see their playing time reduced with Gordon back in the mix.
Mar 20 - 11:32 AM

Aaron Gordon has passed the NBA concussion protocol and will be available to play on Tuesday vs. the Raptors.

He was stuck on the final test of the protocol for a while, but he's now ready to return after a five-game absence. We'll be on the lookout for any restrictions, but Gordon can be deployed for Orlando's 3-game week. Mario Hezonja and Jonathan Isaac both lose a lot of streaming appeal, and Khem Birch will also lose some minutes with Gordon back because he was playing a lot of PF.
Mar 19 - 11:15 AM

Aaron Gordon (concussion) is officially out for Friday against the Celtics.

According to the Magic broadcast, Gordon did not pass the final test on the protocol to get him out there. He doesn't appear to be to be on the bench, so maybe he's changing into his street clothes. He should be ready for their next game on Tuesday.
