The Orlando Magic have reportedly traded Aaron Gordon to the Denver Nuggets for Gary Harris, RJ Hampton, and a first-round pick, according to ESPN.
Gordon’s numbers and playing time have been slightly down this season for a Magic team that’s near the bottom of the Eastern Conference.

The 25-year-old is averaging 14.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game in just under 30 minutes a night.
The move ends years of speculation about Gordon’s status in Orlando. The Magic have largely been a lottery team ever since they drafted Gordon in 2014, and while he may have rescinded it, it’s worth noting that he reportedly requested a trade in February.
He went on to express his frustration at the situation after a loss Tuesday, and now, he’ll continue his career on a new team.
