Every team in the National Basketball Association likely compiles some sort of free agent and trade target list as the offseason approachres, but most other teams manage to keep their plans from showing up on social media.

Warriors forward Andre Iguodala will be a free agent this summer, and at least one of his potential suitors, the Orlando Magic, surfaced Monday. The 35-year-old executive downplayed the image, saying it was "not indicative of plans" and was just a case of "simply listing options, including some of which other teams have inquired about", per Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. A wall-mounted dry-erase board can be seen in the background with several headings that reference trades and free agents. Warren, who will be entering the final year of his rookie contract, is listed under the header "hybrid trade". Aaron Gordon seemed to be one of the key players the Magic were developing as the face of their franchise, and showing doubt in him is never a good sign for fans who believe in him or Gordon himself.

When asked how hard it is to put it out of his mind, Gordon responded, "Obviously, I know that it's there, but I just play the game".

The tweet has since been deleted, but clearly, the damage has been done.

The board is divided into four columns: Hybrid Trade, Hybrid Free Agency, Spread Bigs Trade and FA (Spread Bigs?) with the terms hybrid and spread referring to the player (combo forward and stretch big man). Denver's Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari and Atlanta's Paul Millsap, and Detroit's Jon Leuer top each category, respectively.

Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigan is doing his best to douse the flames of Whiteboardgate.
