Case in point, when you can barely get off the bench for a Charlotte Bobcats squad that was in desperate need of outside shooting, you know your career has taken a nose dive. With Gordon finally becoming a free agent, he could finally take his shooting touch to a team that needs it and revitalize his fortunes in the process.
Enter the Orlando Magic who signed the guard to a two-year deal worth $9 million. The Magic are in need of a shooter off the bench, and Gordon will provide the much-needed offensive punch.
Along with his three-point shooting prowess, Gordon will also provide the young Magic with veteran leadership, a spot that was left void when Orlando traded Aaron Afflalo to the Denver Nuggets before the 2014 NBA Draft.
The signing of Gordon now makes the shooting guard position a crowded one. Along with Gordon, newly acquired Evan Fournier, Willie Green and Maurice Harkless will all be battling each other for playing time as the backup to starting two-guard Victor Oladipo.
Whoever it is that backs up Oladipo, the shooting guard position is poised to be a strong suit for the Magic again this season. Magic fans all over Central Florida and the world should be excited for the upcoming season.
