Magic Weighing Trading Down In Draft

While we've heard on multiple occasions that the Cavaliers are exploring possible trades involving the No. 1 overall pick in tomorrow's draft, it may be another team at the top that ends up dealing its pick.

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel tweets that the Magic are considering moving the No. 2 overall pick, while Adrian Wojnarowski notes (via Twitter) that Orlando has been doing plenty of homework on late-lottery/mid-first-round prospects. According to Wojnarowski, the Magic are weighing possible deals involving the second overall pick.

Within his tweet, Robbins advises to keep an eye on the Timberwolves, since we've heard Minnesota has interest in trading up to draft Victor Oladipo or Ben McLemore. When I previewed the Wolves' offseason this morning, I pointed out that Oladipo was a good bet to go second overall if the Cavs take Nerlens Noel first, so acquiring that Orlando pick could be necessary if the Wolves covet the Indiana guard. The Nos. 9 and 26 picks, along with Derrick Williams, could be in play if the two sides were to discuss a deal.

Assuming the Magic keep the No. 2 pick, Noel is viewed as the player atop their draft board. If Noel is selected first overall, Oladipo and McLemore are considered the favorites for the second pick, while's Chad Ford cited Cody Zeller as a dark horse.

    I’d love to see the Bulls swing a way to move into this slot for Oladipo. Slide Butler to the 3 spot full time. Rose-Oladipo-Butler-Boozer-Noah with Taj and kirk on the bench would be a nice roster in my opinion.

      I’m guessing Butler would have to be a part of the package to Orlando to get them interested. Perhaps they’d consider it for Deng, Chicago’s 1st this year, and Charlotte’s 2014 protected first…but I doubt it. I don’t know how Deng helps them.

        I’d give them our first this year and Deng, and maybe another 2nd round. No way does the Charlotte pick get thrown in. That thing is gold.

          Understood, though I don’t see Orlando being enticed by that offer.

        • FlaveFlava

          For only one year of Deng on a weak team to move down in a weak draft, doesn’t make sense for Orlando.

    Butler,Nate Robinson,Marion and Gibson for the 2nd Pick,13th Dallas,Davis and Harrington. Dallas gets future Picks.
