There have been NBA trade rumors recently about the Orlando Magic looking for a scorer. The Magic has been struggling to put enough points on the scoreboard each game so getting John Wall from the Washington Wizards could be the answer. In return, the Wizards could get the high-flying power forward Aaron Gordon.
The Wizards have been struggling this season and would probably not make it to the playoffs. However, it's not Wall's fault that his team is doing really bad this year because he's been averaging 24.2 PPG, 9.6 APG and 4.3 RPG. Despite his consistency, it appears that he could be in this year's NBA trade rumors since his contract is about to expire in the 2018-2019 season.
Wall also expressed that he's not been given full credit for his efforts. According to Bleacher Report, he felt undervalued because he's been getting almost the same amount of money that other players who haven't made the all-star get. He particularly mentioned Reggie Jackson getting $80 Million and he gets the same compensation as well.
With Wall being a part in the picture of NBA trade rumors, it's a good opportunity for the Magic to acquire him. In a report by ESPN, the Magic looks to add more firepower on the offensive end, particularly at the point guard position. Wall is the perfect fit for the Magic since he has been productive offensively this season.
This NBA trade rumor would play out if the Magic would trade Aaron Gordon and Serge Ibaka to the Wizards for Wall. It would be a valid deal and even if the Magic would give two of its talented big men, they would get an all-star point guard in return who could boost the team's offense day in, day out.
The trade deadline is still two months away so there's still a possibility for these NBA trade rumors to happen. It would be a deal that could benefit both teams.
