Aaron Gordon Excited To Go To Magic, Ready To Grow With Oladipo, Harris

The Orlando Magic added yet another young, athletic player on Thursday night when they used the fourth pick on Aaron Gordon.

Gordon, 18, is the youngest player in his draft class and averaged 12.4 points and 8.0 rebounds in his lone season at Arizona. He will join Orlando’s current core of Victor Oladipo, Tobias Harris and Nikola Vucevic.

“It makes it easy for me because Victor Oladipo and Tobias Harris, they’re both good pros already. They’re young, and we can grow together,” Gordon told the media moments after being selected. "Very gritty, hard-working people. That’s who I am. I couldn’t be happier to be playing with them, man. I really couldn’t be.”

Gordon’s sister, who graduated from Harvard, immediately pointed out to the rookie that there is no state income tax in Florida — making him one of the biggest financial winners on Thursday night.

“She’s my manager,” he said. "That’s who’s going to be living out there with me.”

Gordon felt that he worked out well for teams selecting four-to-eight, the range he felt he’d be selected.

“When I got in a one-on-one circumstance with all the teams picking four to eight, I thought I did very well,” he recalled. "I showed them things that maybe they previously didn’t think I could do. When I got to Orlando, they just liked my game. They liked my skill set. They know how hard I worked, and I’m going to continue to do that. What I’ve done to get myself here will never fade away. That’s who I am. Everything else, I’m just going to start adding on and continue to add on."
