Aaron Gordon looks like an uber atheltic — yet worst — version of Josh Smith. If I’m working for Orlando, I wouldn’t be putting my eggs in his basket. Almost everything he’s good at is theoretical.
So, probably there was a demand for playoffs coming from ownership, and Hennigan is right in selling Ibaka now. He will almost surely get fired, so it’s nice to see that at least he’s not destroying Orlando’s future to save his job at all costs. The draft has been really unkind to him.
They obviously should be tanking. Their only assets are Fournier (a keeper) and Gordon’s atheticism. I’d surely put a price on Gordon.
