#Aaron Gordon

Aaron Gordon is returning to Orlando.

The 22-year-old forward has agreed to a new four-year, $84 million contract with the Magic, according to a report from ESPN. Gordon, who has spent all four of his NBA seasons in Orlando, was a restricted free agent.

Gordon announced he was returning to Orlando on his Twitter account.

The Pacers and Lakers had both also reportedly expressed interest in potentially signing Gordon this offseason.

Gordon averaged a career-high 17.6 and 7.9 rebounds per game on an Orlando team that went 25-57 in 2017-18. He also knocked down 33.6 percent of his 3-pointers.

Gordon was originally selected by the Magic with the fourth pick of the 2014 NBA Draft.

The Magic selected Texas center Mohamed Bamba with the sixth pick in last month's draft. They last made the playoffs in 2011-12.

All signings will not be official until the end of the NBA moratorium period on July 6.
