Aaron Gordon's name has been on the trade block for a while and now the rumors of him asking his way out of town are heating up! Things are becoming more clear on what he's looking for. Jared Weiss and Sam Amick of the Athletic reported with info below:
“The 25-year-old wants to be in a winning situation that will help him fulfill his basketball potential and maximize his profile by being in a large market with plenty of branding opportunities,” Weiss and Amick wrote. “He demonstrated promising basketball and marketing value with his early career success, particularly in the legendary slam dunk contest battle with Zach Lavine in 2016. But as Orlando has been stuck on the treadmill of mediocrity in recent years, his Q rating and standing in the league has clearly plateaued.”
Branding and marketing opportunities...heard that before.
