I think the Jazz really need Gordon but imI dint think it’s eniugh. I think the Hornets have more movable pieces to go get Gordon.

All 3 teams giving up the better player pass.

The chemistry is bad in Washington and his contract is rough, but it doesn’t mean they’re just going to give away a legitimate allstar for nothing. Their roster is going to be expensive either way. Atleast there is hope that they can get to the post season with Wall. If they give him up for that, any hope is out the window this year.

For the Cavs, a nonlottery 1st doesn’t pay for Biyombo and Lamb has almost no value. If the Cavs can’t find a better deal for Love (I think they could), they should just keep him. It’s not like having 1 good veteran on the team is going to stop them from tanking, but he could be the focal point of the offense, helping the young guys develop good offensive habits rather than always trying to play hero ball.

Orlando has no real reason to trade Gordon, unless they can get a good package pack. If they want to take care of the log jam of bigs, they should just trade Vucevic for whatever they can get out of him.

Rkeene watch a game ( maguc) vuc is the only consistent player on that roster. Gordon is overpaid and has peaked.

Gordon has been anything but successful so far this season. It looks like wanting him to be a SF is always going to be just under the surface.

Vucevic is most likely gone after this year and doesn’t fit the time line of the rest of the team. Gordon is 23 and has made big jumps every year. Gordon’s contract is actually pretty decent. It’s 22 Million right now, which is an overpay (which the magic can do with out a real problem), but by the final year of the contract it’s only 16 Million and it declines every year. That could look like a steal by that time. It’s not hard to imagine Gordon being a top 4 player on a really good team at that time and the cap will probably be well north of 120.
