Aaron Gordon impresses in summer league action

It was an underwhelming rookie season for Orlando Magic power forward Aaron Gordon in 2014, but he surely looked impressive in his 1st summer league game on Saturday as he had 22 points and 18 rebounds in a 75-74 overtime win over the Los Angeles Clippers. Gordon looked to have an improved jump shot, although he still hasn’t quite become a better free throw shooter as he went 4-10 on Saturday from the free throw line. Sure, it is only the summer league and the most talented players in the NBA aren’t out there, but if Gordon can continue to put up performances like he did on Saturday then he could help to solidify a starting spot at power forward for the Magic next season. I’d like to see Gordon become more consistent offensively and that’s really what is holding him back because he certainly has the physicality to do everything else. Gordon still has a lot to prove to new head coach Scott Skiles in the summer league and if he can keep playing like he did today then maybe he can carry that consistency into the start of the 2015 season.
