Hornets, Magic, Bulls Agree Upon Three-Team Trade

Jul 7, 2018 9:11 PM

The Charlotte Hornets, Chicago Bulls and Orlando Magic have agreed upon a three-team trade.

The Hornets will trade Timofey Mozgov to the Magic and Julyan Stone to the Bulls. Bismack Biyombo will be moved from the Magic to the Hornets. Biyombo began his career with Charlotte.

Orlando will also acquire Jerian Grant.

The Hornets acquired Mozgov in the Dwight Howard trade.

If Chicago waives Stone, the trade clears Grant and creates a $2.6 million trade exception, according to Albert Nahmad. The Bulls have up to $29 million in cap room before LaVine is officially matched if Sean Kilpatrick and Paul Zipser are waived.

Aaron Gordon Ready To Talk With Rival Teams In Restricted Free Agency

Jun 28, 2018 6:38 PM

Aaron Gordon will be a restricted free agent this offseason and he plans on having discussions with other teams.

“Obviously, I’ve got to talk to other teams,” Gordon said Thursday in a telephone interview with the Orlando Sentinel. “I’ve got to do the due diligence. But we’ll talk to the Magic, and I do believe that they’re going to offer me something fair. And, hopefully, we can go from there. But I have to do the due diligence and see what’s going to be the best fit for myself.”

A max deal for Gordon would begin at $25.3 million in Year 1. If Gordon re-signs with the Magic on a max, it could be worth up to $148 million over five years.

“We’ve worked hard to establish a relationship with Aaron and learn him and he learn us,” Magic President of Basketball Operations Jeff Weltman told the Sentinel. “And, obviously, a big part of this is just having relationships with his representatives and just having discussions with him as we move forward and start to see if there’s a middle ground that we can reach and strike a deal. And we’re hopeful that we can do that.”
