Suns & Magic trade

Magic get Picks 16 & 31 in 2018 draft, Bucks 2019 1st round pick(protected top 3), Marquese Chriss

Suns get Aaron Gordon in max deal sign & trade

Orlando can't afford to sign him to a max without crippling their ability to make other moves and they also can't afford to let him walk for nothing. I see a scenario where Orlando matches any offer sheet to Gordon and then trades him.

Too much to give up for a guy PHX or anyone else with cap space can probably get for a lot less.

I'd gamble on Chriss another season before trading 3 picks for Gordon. Magic shopped Gordon all year suns didn't bite. Likely suns are still not interested.

Gordon package is a steal. Magic would be dumb to trade best player since howard.

Here's the thing. The draft, talent wise, really flattens out after pick 12. That being said the picks don't excite me as much as other year's drafts. But Orlando might need to part with Gordon and package some picks to move up. Almost start a "Trust the Process" build. Outside of Gordon and perhaps on a smaller scale, Fournier and Vucevic they don't have a ton of options.

what are you talking about shizzee? Gordon is a RFA. Its a steal to do a sign and trade giving up 2 firsts, the first pick of the second round AND chriss? again. fool. well played.
