It comes as no surprise that Aaron Gordon's name has once again surfaced in the weeks leading to the trade deadline. As it turns out, however, the Orlando Magic have slapped a huge price tag on the 25-year-old.

According to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, the Magic will only consider parting ways with Gordon if they are able to get a significant package in exchange for the high-flying forward:

To pry Gordon from the Magic, it would cost a first-round pick and a good young player, league sources told HoopsHype.

The Athletic's Jon Krawczynski also provided a similar report pertaining to Gordon's potential availability:

That is indeed a steep price the Magic are asking for. As Krawczynski implied above, however, it is very much possible that the Magic will lower their price as the deadline approaches. As we edge closer to March 25th, we should get a firm idea of how serious Orlando is about their asking price and how significantly Gordon figures in their plans moving forward.

It is worth noting that Gordon is going to be in the final year of his contract next season. An extension from the Magic could be on the table, but if they opt against doing so, then they will likely want to trade him before his deal runs out at the end of the 2021-22 campaign.

As it is, the Magic consider Jonathan Isaac to be their power forward of the future. The 23-year-old is currently dealing with a season-ending knee injury, but he is expected to be ready for Orlando at the start of the 2021-22 season. Right now, Gordon is looking like surplus to requirements, and Orlando might just decide to cash in on him soon.
