The Boston Celtics are considered the frontrunners to trade for Aaron Gordon, sources told Matt Moore of The Action Network (also confirmed by The Athletic).

The Celtics have reportedly offered two first-round picks in exchange for Gordon. It is not known what protections will be added to the draft picks.

The framework of the trade also includes Evan Fournier going to the Celtics, with the Celtics trading another player while using their Trade Player Exception.

The Magic prefer Marcus Smart, though the Celtics are reluctant to part with the guard.

The TPE is not eligible to be used with more than one player, making other teams likely to join the trade.

The Nuggets are also contenders to trade for Gordon with Bol Bol, Will Barton, and draft compensation on the table.
