The Orlando Magic and Denver Nuggets have agreed on a deal to send forward Aaron Gordon to Denver, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
In exchange, Gary Harris, R.J. Hampton and a first-round pick will go to the Magic, as well as a protected 2025 first-round pick, according to sources.
Orlando also is including Gary Clark in the deal, sources told Wojnarowski.
Gordon, 25, acknowledged Tuesday that he asked Orlando for a trade. He said he made the request because of his “frustration” with the team on a number of issues.
“There’s been times where I just expressed my frustration to management,” Gordon told reporters. “Frustration with the losses, the injuries, the way we’ve been playing and how many losses have accumulated over the years. So it’s just my frustration kind of boiling over I would say. … I think a lot of people share that sentiment with me, of frustration.”
Gordon was selected by the Magic with the fourth overall pick in the 2014 Draft. Since Gordon was selected before the 2014-15 season, the Magic have gone a combined 203-322, qualifying for the playoffs just twice and getting knocked out in the first round each time.
Gordon is averaging 14.7 points and 6.8 rebounds per game this season.
