Aaron Gordon said that the Magic will "be in the playoffs this year."
It's an awfully bold prediction by AG, even in the weakened Eastern Conference. Here's the full quote from Gordon: "I’m looking to lead and be led to the playoffs with my team. It’s going to take a collective team effort but yeah — we’ll be in the playoffs this year." Orlando added Jonathon Simmons, Marreese Speights and Arron Afflalo via free agency, and drafted Jonathan Isaac, but it remains highly unlikely they will be able to sneak into the postseason.

Aaron Gordon said he thinks he might go back in the dunk contest for next season.

He also admitted he "wasn't feeling all that great" and was "hurting a little bit" for the 2017 dunk contest. After the time off following the dunk contest, Gordon played arguably his best ball of his career after the break, 16.4 points, 6.2 boards, 1.7 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.7 blocks and 0.9 treys in those 24 games as the power forward. While the Magic did give him some competition in Jonathan Isaac, Gordon should still get his as a candidate to be a top-50 player this season.
Sep 7 - 5:13 PM

Aaron Gordon said he's working on 3-pointers the most this offseason.

He added he'll work on his passing and to make his teammates around him better. Gordon did have a solid finish from deep in his final seven games, making 2.0 per game on 44.8 percent from that range. That's obviously a small sample and Gordon did only make 28.8 percent from deep last year. Gordon's shift to power forward was a successful one and he'll likely be a mid-round target with upside.
Jun 9 - 3:17 PM

Aaron Gordon finished the season with a bang on Wednesday vs. Detroit, racking up 32 points, 12 rebounds, one steal, two blocks and three triples in 35 minutes.

Coach Frank Vogel was supposed to limit the minutes of the first unit tonight, but he didn't want to take Gordon off the floor. The forward finished 11-of-20 from the field and hit all seven of his free throws as he continues to thrive as a small-ball PF. Gordon showcased his upside after the All-Star break with averages of 16.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.7 blocks and 0.9 triples on 50.5 percent shooting, returning top-45 value in standard leagues in that span. There's a lot to be excited about for next season.
Apr 13 - 12:18 AM

Aaron Gordon kept his foot on the gas with 22 points and 15 rebounds vs. the Nets on Saturday.

He's been a completely different player since his move to power forward and it's a shame that the Magic waited so long to make the switch. He finished 9-of-18 from the field and 4-of-7 from beyond the arc, adding five assists and two steals in 35 minutes. He dropped 32 points with 16 rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers in his previous outing, giving his owners a huge spark at the ideal time.
Apr 1 - 9:23 PM

Aaron Gordon (shoulder) matched his career-high 16 rebounds against the Celtics on Friday, adding 32 points with one assist, one steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

His 32 points are just one off his career high, as well. Obviously Gordon's sore shoulder was not a problem despite being called a game-time decision. As has been the case for the past month, the move to power forward has been huge for Gordon, making 49.5 percent from the field since the break compared to just 42.8 percent before that. This monster game moved him up to sixth-round value since the break, so his strong finish will create some buzz when 2017 draft season comes around.
Mar 31 - 11:23 PM

Aaron Gordon (sore shoulder) will Friday night vs. Boston.

Gordon has been considered questionable earlier in the day but is ready to roll on Friday night. Gordon is averaging 14.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.2 blocks over Orlando's last six games.
Mar 31 - 6:20 PM

Aaron Gordon (sore shoulder) will be a game-time decision for Friday's matchup against the Celtics.

Gordon seems to have moved past the minor hip injury that was bothering him as recently as last week, but is now dealing with a shoulder issue. Jeff Green (back) has already been ruled out for Friday, which means the Magic would be thin in the frontcourt if Gordon is unable to suit up. Mario Hezonja may be asked to start if Orlando chooses to go small, or they could go big and start Bismack Biyombo alongside Nikola Vucevic. Check back later in the afternoon for an update.
Mar 31 - 12:29 PM

Aaron Gordon scored 16 points with four rebounds, two assists and one block in 30 minutes against the Pistons on Friday.

His hip injury didn't seem to bother him and he continues to look more comfortable as a power forward. Since the break, Gordon's seen a major increase in efficiency and value while also seeing a bump in rebounding, blocks and getting to the line. He's still likely just to peak as a mid-round guy, but at least he's playing well enough to be owned these days.
Mar 24 - 9:35 PM

Coach Frank Vogel confirmed that Aaron Gordon (sore left hip) will play Friday vs. the Pistons.

There wasn't much doubt surrounding Gordon's availability, as he hasn't missed a game since February 11th. After a strong start to the month, in which he averaged 17.0 points and 6.1 rebounds over the first seven games in March, Gordon is averaging just 11.8 points and 3.5 rebounds over his last four contests. Hopefully, Gordon will be able to get back on track Friday night against Detroit.
Mar 24 - 11:16 AM

Aaron Gordon was quiet in 29 minutes vs. the Hornets, scoring seven points on 3-of-8 shooting with one 3-pointer, four rebounds, two assists and no defensive stats.

Jeff Green (back spasms) was out tonight, which could have opened up more playing time for Gordon, who came in averaging 29.5 minutes in March. Instead, Gordon played his usual role and it was Mario Hezonja (23 minutes) gaining the most in Green's absence. Despite tonight's disappointing line, AG continues to hold low-end value in most leagues.
Mar 22 - 9:37 PM

Aaron Gordon scored 17 points with four rebounds, one steal, four blocks and one 3-pointer against the Suns on Friday.

That's more like it. His Arizona Wildcats were able to get the win and the Magic were also able to bear down in Phoenix tonight. Gordon continues to play better at the four and the Magic really pushed the ball. After the game, Gordon said he liked the pace on the Suns broadcast, so maybe coach Frank Vogel can help him out and create a better fantasy offense for him. Maybe this game can get him going to set up his three games next week.
Mar 18 - 2:02 AM

Aaron Gordon hit 2-of-7 shots for six points and three rebounds in 21 minutes of Thursday's 122-92 blowout loss to the Warriors.

This game was over after the first quarter and the bench for both teams played a big role in the 30-point blowout. Gordon had scored in double figures in all eight of his March games coming into this one, but the Magic simply ran into a buzzsaw.
Mar 17 - 12:54 AM

Aaron Gordon scored 20 points with five rebounds in 28 minutes against the Hornets on Friday.

He was 8-of-14 from the field and didn't add any other stats besides two turnovers tonight. Gordon's efficiency is looking a lot better thanks to getting to the rim, which has helped him make 48.8 percent from the field and 81.8 percent from the line in his previous seven games since the break. He's been a ninth-round value in standard leagues since the break, which is about right going forward.
Mar 10 - 9:32 PM

Aaron Gordon scored 17 points on 8-of-15 shooting in Monday's loss to the Knicks.

AG added five rebounds, four assists, one block and one triple in 30 minutes. He's loving life as the starting power forward and his value has seen a nice boost since the All-Star break -- he was averaging 14.6 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.6 blocks and 0.6 steals in his previous five games. The peripheral stats still aren't there, but Gordon looks like he will hit his stride just in time for the fantasy playoffs.
