Aaron Gordon cleared the air about his rumored trade demand after the Magic’s loss to the Nuggets on Tuesday. According to the former Arizona Wildcats standout, a trio of factors led to his decision to ask for a trade out of Orlando.

Following yesterday’s result, Orlando Sentinel contributor Roy Parry highlighted Gordon’s trade-related comments.

“There’s been times where I just expressed my frustration to management and the frustration with the losses, the injuries, the way we’ve been playing, how we’ve been playing and how many losses have accumulated over the years,” Gordon said. “So it’s just my frustration kind of boiling over, I would say. I think a lot of people share that sentiment with me, a lot of frustration.”

Gordon, who is in the middle of his seventh season in the NBA, is averaging 14.6 points and 6.6 rebounds per game. On the trade front, the Trail Blazers are rumored to be one of the teams vying for his services.
