It appears the Boston Celtics and Orlando Magic will take Aaron Gordon talks down to the wire.
Thursday, of course, is the NBA’s trade deadline. Teams have until 3 p.m. ET to make a move.
Wojnarowski seems fairly confident Gordon will have a new home in the NBA by Thursday afternoon. Trade talks for the star forward have heated up in recent days, with Boston emerging as one of the frontrunners.
Instead, the team reportedly is willing to give up a first-round pick and one of its young players while trying to avoid including a second first-rounder in the deal. Boston’s interest in Gordon is said to be “very serious” but he won’t come cheap.
The Minnesota Timberwolves and Denver Nuggets reportedly also remain in the market for Gordon.
