Aaron Gordon’s net worth in 2024 is $50 million. This is according to reputable outlets such as Celebrity Net Worth.

Aaron Gordon was born on Sept. 16, 1995, in San Jose, Calif. He attended Archbishop Mitty High School where Gordon kick-started his amateur basketball career. As a senior, he put up 21.6 points, a school-record 15.7 rebounds and 3.3 blocks per game.

In his high school stint, Gordon finished with 2,386 points and 1,666 rebounds, which are current school records. In addition to this, Gordon also led Archbishop Mitty High School to back-to-back state titles. For his efforts, Gordon was named California Mr. Basketball twice and First Team Parade All-American.

Coming out of high school, Gordon was a five-star recruit by ESPN. As a top prospect, Gordon received offers from various college basketball programs, including Oregon, Kentucky, Washington, and Arizona. Gordon eventually committed to Arizona.

Gordon only played one season with Arizona. In his lone season in a Wildcats uniform, Gordon averaged 12.4 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game.

The Arizona Wildcats went 33-5 and reached the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament. Unfortunately, the Wildcats lost to Wisconsin, 64-63. Gordon finished his college stint as the Pac-12 Freshman Player of the Year, First Team All-Pac 12, and Third Team All-America.

Aaron Gordon is drafted by the Magic

After just one season with the Arizona Wildcats, Gordon decided to forego his remaining years of college eligibility by officially declaring for the 2014 NBA Draft. On draft night, the Orlando Magic selected Gordon in the first round with the fourth overall pick.

Shortly after, Gordon signed a two-year rookie deal worth $8.16 million with the Magic, according to Spotrac. In his rookie season, Gordon only saw limited minutes on the floor coming off the bench. He averaged 5.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 0.7 assists per game while shooting 45 percent from the field overall.

In the following season, Gordon improved his numbers to 9.2 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game while shooting 47 percent from the field overall. However, Gordon made headlines during the 2016 All-Star Weekend, particularly when he finished as the runner-up at the NBA Slam Dunk Contest.

Aaron Gordon signs contract extension with the Magic

In the 2017-18 season, Gordon had a stellar season. His numbers jumped to 17.6 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game while shooting 43 percent from the field. Coming off a solid season individually, the Magic rewarded Gordon with a four-year contract extension worth $84 million, as per reports.

After that, Gordon continued to produce as a starter for the Magic. He continued to average in double figures for the following seasons. Gordon returned to the Slam Dunk Contest in the 2020 All-Star Weekend. Although Gordon continued to entertain the crowd, the first-round pick could only finish as a runner-up.

However, despite his respectable individual production, the Magic were hardly relevant as a contender as they often suffered through losing seasons, with exception to the 2019-20 season. Although the Magic made a playoff appearance in 2020, they still suffered a first-round elimination against the Bucks.

With lackluster results, it wouldn’t be long before Gordon grew frustrated and requested a trade, according to reports.

Midway through the 2020-21 season, the Magic sent Gordon to the Denver Nuggets along with Gary Clark in return for Gary Harris, RJ Hampton and a 2025 first-round pick. For the remainder of the year, Gordon put up 10.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.2 assists per game in a Nuggets uniform.

After 25 games with the Nuggets, Gordon proved that he was a valuable piece that served well alongside back-to-back MVP Nikola Jokic. As a result, the Nuggets signed him to a four-year contract extension worth $92 million, based on reports.

Since signing a fresh deal with the Nuggets, Gordon is proving to be a vital piece for the Nuggets as one of the best baseline cutters. In the 2022-23 season, Gordon averaged 16.3 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 3.0 assists per game.

But more importantly, Gordon played an instrumental role in helping the Nuggets securing the franchise’s first NBA championship. In the 2023 NBA Playoffs, Gordon put up 13.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 2.6 assists per game  to help the Nuggets fend off the Miami Heat in five games at the NBA Finals.

Gordon’s numbers were slightly down in 2023-24, but he and the Nuggets are back in the playoffs and knocked out the Lakers in the first round. After they lost the first two games at home against the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Nuggets responded by winning the next two in Minnesota and then the pivotal Game 5 in Denver.

Gordon had one of his best playoff games of his career in Game 4 with 27 points on 10-of-11 shooting to go along with seven rebounds and six assists.
