Trail Blazers among the favorites to land Aaron Gordon from Magic

Trail Blazers

The NBA trade deadline is just a few days away. 

On March 25th, teams will become buyers or sellers. 

The Orlando Magic appear to be the latter. 

Forward Aaron Gordon has been rumored to be on the trading block for some time. 

He was nearly traded to the Timberwolves before injuring his ankle earlier this season. 

The Trail Blazers were also linked as a possible trade destination. 

On Monday, though, Gordon formalized his desire to get out of Orlando, requesting a trade.

There are plenty of teams that could use the 25-year-old's servicees. 

Will Portland be the team?

But besides the Blazers, where else do people see Gordon landing before the deadline?

With odds provided by PointsBet, Gordon could be headed to Rip City. 

  • Golden State Warriors: +225
  • Portland Trail Blazers: +280
  • Boston Celtics: +290
  • Houston Rockets: +300
  • Denver Nuggets: +500
  • Minnesota Timberwolves: +500

Shams Charania has previously reported Gordon's desire to join the majority of the teams listed above.

 

But it is also worth noting that Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports reports that "talks have diminished between Orlando and the Portland Trail Blazers." 

But again, anything is possible and anything could happen before the trade deadline.
