Aaron Gordon is an athletic freak of nature. He is 6’9″ and 220 pounds but has the vertical jump of a guard. According to DraftExpress, Gordon had a 39″ max vertical and 32.5″ no step vertical at the 2014 NBA Draft Combine.

He was one of the most athletic players in his draft class and part of the reason the Orlando Magic selected him with the 4th overall draft pick. Gordon wowed NBA fans with his performance in the 2016 Slam Dunk Contest and was again named a contest participant in 2017.

In his three seasons with the Magic, Gordon has averaged 8.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game. His numbers have gradually improved each season, but the Magic are still waiting for him to reach the potential they saw when Orlando made him a top-five pick. During the 2016-17 season, Gordon is averaging 11.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game.

Part of the challenge with Gordon is finding a position that fits his skill set. His shot does not make him a traditional stretch-four and his post-game is a work in progress. At the same time, Gordon’s handles need to improve, and he does not shoot the three-ball well enough to make him an effective small forward.

Gordon is just 21 years old and has plenty of time to reach his potential. His athleticism makes up for a lot of his deficiencies making him a factor on both ends of the floor. It has not helped matters that he has played under three different head coaches in his short NBA career.

Gordon averaged 12.4 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists and a block during his one college season at Arizona.

Gordon was just as impressive in high school. Here are some of his best highlights at just 16 years old:
