NBA trade candidate: Nikola Vucevic, Orlando Magic
Trade confidence meter: 3/10
Much like Aaron Gordon, Nikola Vucevic is another player that has continually found his name in the rumor mill over the last couple of seasons. The Magic are going nowhere fast in the Eastern Conference and this could be a pivotal moment for the franchise.
This core has reached its peak and it wouldn’t be surprising to see the team try to sell at the trade deadline. Vucevic is the team’s best player and is arguably having the best season of his career thus far.
The market for him would be vast and there’s a good chance that Orlando would be able to get some decent-to-good assets in exchange for their big man. It’s a big decision, but it may be time for a hard reset.
Ideal destination: Boston Celtics
