Aaron Gordon
SF/PF, 6’9, 220lbs, 21 years old, 3 years of experience

The small forward experiment didn’t work, and nor should there ever have been one. Gordon should always have been at the power forward spot, able to switch down onto smaller opponents without being designated them full time, and developing as a stretch power forward and roll man with spacing around him, rather than being the spacing more than occasionally himself. Gordon’s numbers are down across the board, yet by far and away, his best stretch of the season was after the All-Star Break; namely, after Ibaka was traded and he could go back to power forward. From a skills development point of view, the outside shot-making is the most obvious area of improvement, but the positional correction is the key to his future. He is a difference maker as a four with his interior defence, perimeter defence and cutting. He isn’t as a three.

Player Plan: One year of rookie scale salary remaining, and extension eligible this summer. Given the poor season the year prior, pursue that to see if he can be locked up cheap before he breaks out as his rightful position next season. In light of this being unlikely, he will head to RFA.
