Report: Magic trade Nikola Vucevic to Bulls; Aaron Gordon deal next?


The NBA trade deadline fireworks have begun.

The Orlando Magic are trading Nikola Vucevic to the Chicago Bulls in a blockbuster deal, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday. Here are the full terms of the trade, per Wojnarowski:

Bulls receive: Nikola Vucevic, Al-Farouq Aminu

Magic receive: Otto Porter, Wendell Carter Jr., and two first-round draft picks

The Boston Celtics were viewed as an early suitor for Vucevic, an All-Star big man who's averaging 24.5 points and 11.8 rebounds per game. But the C's reportedly have their sights on another Orlando player who could be dealt next.

A Magic trade for Aaron Gordon is "on deck" ahead of the 3 p.m. ET deadline, Wojnarowski reported, with The New York Times' Marc Stein adding that both Gordon and Evan Fournier are expected to be moved.

Gordon is "eager" to be traded to the Celtics, who face competition from the Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers in a potential deal, The Athletic's Jared Weiss reported earlier Thursday.

The Magic have been hesitant to make deadline deals in the past, but it appears they're clear sellers this year, which means C's fans should keep a close eye on Gordon and potentially Fournier as 3 p.m. draws near.
