Gordon, who made an appearance at the Orlando Summer League on Sunday, understands his role and can’t wait to start making an impact on the Magic.
“They wanted me, they wanted a veteran guard to come in and help the team and help along the young guys,” Gordon said. “That’s just something I’m looking forward to. … We have talented pieces; we have athletic guys at various positions so we’ll what happens.”
Gordon is looking forward to being the elder statesmen in the locker room, which is a role he has gotten used to after doing it in Charlotte and Detroit.
“One thing you learn about the league is different years you’re in different situations,” Gordon said. “This is something I’m familiar with, playing with a group of young guys. I’m just looking to feed off of their energy and I’m going to assist them in any way I can and just be a big part of their success and at the same time just kind of revitalize myself. I’m giving myself another opportunity to go out there and be successful.”
