Trade Chatter Picking Up Around the Orlando Magic

The Orlando Magic currently sit 13-21 on the season which has them on the outside looking in at the playoff picture in the Eastern conference. While the disappointing season can be attest to some injury troubles to key pieces, the Magic have been named as a team that is likely to make some changes as we approach the March 25th trade deadline.

Fournier is 28, making $17 million in the final year of his contract and will be headed for free-agency at season's end. So far this season, the former 20th overall pick in the draft is averaging 18.2 points, 3.0 rebounds and is shooting 36% from deep. Fournier's offensive game would be a welcomed addition to several contenders.

Another player likely getting discussed at the moment is forward Aaron Gordon. The high-flyer and long-time Magic has his name once again tied to trade rumors as this appears to be a yearly thing for the 25-year-old. 

So far this season, Gordon who has battled injuries, has managed to appear in 19 games and is averaging 13.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game. Gordon will make just over $16 million next season which is his final season on his current contract. 

One team to keep an eye on here is the Boston Celtics as they have been linked to talking trade with the Magic in the past and Gordon, if healthy, could fit in with exactly what their team needs.
