Hosting my own SIRIUSXM show is an honor and something that makes my first NBA season even more special.  This year will be full of a lot of firsts and I can’t wait to give the fans a behind-the-scenes look at my new world both on and off the court. I have some pretty high goals set for myself and my team this year and I’m excited to take the listeners along for the ride.”

Aaron Gordon on being featured on SiriusXM’s Year One on SiriusXM NBA Radio (channel 86)

This is the second year the channel is doing its Year One show. Last year, Portland’s C.J. McCollum shared his experience with the SiriusXM crew.

Gordon will be giving weekly reports on his rookie season with co-host Justin Termine. His first show will be Oct. 30 at 6 p.m.

Magic caught in the Pelicans’ splash zone

Magic practice next man up without Victor Oladipo

The Magic are modeling themselves somewhat off the Spurs model. Rob Hennigan was an intern in San Antonio under Sam Presti. Jacque Vaughn played for and coached with Gregg Popovich.
