Aaron Gordon, the high-flying Arizona power forward, was selected 4th by the Orlando Magic in the 2014 NBA Draft. Gordon came into college with a reputation as a dunker, and that’s primary what he was as a freshman. On the defensive end he was tremendous – a long, quick athlete who blocks shots as well as anyone at his position. I’m bullish on Gordon’s prospects. Yes, his shot needs work. But you’re looking at a plug-and-play guy who helps you at the defensive end, and in Orlando, he’ll play alongside Nikola Vucevic, a gem of a center the Magic stole from Orlando in the Dwight Howard trade.
Love the Gordon pick for the Magic, and yes, I firmly believe he could be a 22-10 guy in five years.
