Could the third time be the charm for Aaron Gordon?

The Orlando Magic forward said he would accept an invite to the 2018 Slam Dunk contest if invited by the league, according to The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears.

Gordon, 22, participated in the last two editions of the competition, but failed to capture the crown. In 2016 in Toronto, he went head to head in an epic duel with Zach LaVine, and lost despite submitting one of the best slams of all time.

Last season's dunk exhibition wasn't nearly as entertaining, with Gordon bowing out in the opening round after struggling with a drone. He said afterward he wouldn't try again, but it sounds like he's had a change of heart.

Let him have another shot at it in Los Angeles.
