Aaron Gordon Headed To Denver Following Trade Request

Aaron Gordon has been one of the best players on the Orlando Magic for quite some time now although, over the past few months, it had become clear that he was no longer content with his current situation. Earlier in the week, reports surfaced that Gordon had officially requested a trade out of Orlando, which automatically made him one of the biggest draws of the trade deadline. Today, a team officially made their move and got him.

Per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Denver Nuggets sent RJ Hampton, Gary Harris, and a first-round pick to Orlando, in exchange for Gordon. This is a massive move for both sides, especially since the Nuggets have just received yet another solid piece to complement the likes of Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray.
