Yeah, his max is $25m... Orlando is in a tricky place with Aaron Gordon. He can play either SF or PF, but they drafted Jonathan Isaac last summer to be their longterm solution at PF... They also have free agent-to-be Mario Hezonja, who can play SG/SF, but hasn't really done much in the league until Gordon went down with an injury and Mario started to shine in the SF position... So basically Orlando could re-sign Hezonja for a lot cheaper than Gordon and roll with Hezonja/Isaac at their forward positions, then spend their money elsewhere (DeAndre Jordan is a rumored target). There's also the possibility that they draft someone like Michael Porter Jr. or Luka Doncic and see Gordon as expendable.

Of course, if Orlando decides to match on Gordon, then Hezonja could be a target for us as well -- assuming he doesn't get snatched up during the moratorium.
