He has been great last two games, however there is argument to be made that Gordon played much less than he usually does. 29 in one and 26 in other game.
For god knows how long lot of us point out that their pairing isn't perfect. Doesn't help that Gordon's shooting is having falling projection as season goes on.
As for "trade him" , if it's pointed to me, i wanted to trade him for another prospect ( Smith in particular ) in moment when Magic had: Grant, Augustin and Brisco as only PG options . Now with Fultzs is whole different story, assuming he will be good to go next season.
Best thing WeHam did in free agency is making Gordon's deal scaling down, to make potential trades easier.
As for eating crow, he didn't play well in past ,that's just fact, he is starting to play better and i'll be happy if it turns out i was wrong. His 3 pointer is probably key for reaching new level, prior this 7-15 hot streak he missed i think 24 of 28 threes.
And his defense was never really issue ,it was always how little he contributed to offense.
