After seven illustrious years with Orlando Magic, Evan Fournier, Nikola Vucevic and Aaron Gordon are all set to make the transition to other teams.
It is exceedingly rare that players spend this many years together and that too in the same team, but for Evan Fournier, Nikola Vucevic, and Aaron Gordon, Orlando Magic is HOME. This is the only team they have ever played for.
Fournier has been a vagabond since the beginning of his career as he began playing professionally at 13, and was drafted into NBA at 19. He joined Orlando Magic two years later at the age of 21 years. He has played seven out of nine seasons in the NBA with Orlando.
This is the very place where Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon, and Nikola Vucevic have grown up. They have signed second and third contracts with the same team. They have always been there for the team. The trio has been an integral part of the team. These three players have tasted ultimate success, shared the joy, and consoled each other after every defeat.
Orlando Magic couldn’t sustain the amazing trio and did not provide the right support which the young thriving players required. Everything was put on hold by the coronavirus pandemic. The unwanted injuries further dented the morale of the players.
No matter what decisions are taken, this fantabulous trio will always be remembered for their association with Orlando Magic. All three of them should be inducted into the Orlando Magic Hall of Fame.
