NBA Trade Rumors – Recent rumors have suggested that the Orlando Magic will be shopping their pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. As you can imagine, the second overall pick is a great commodity to have and a lot of teams will be interested in doing business with Orlando.

It’s understandable that the Magic are looking to move the pick. Such a high pick will always attract a lot of interest, but the lack of a player with unquestionable superstar potential in this year’s class means that Orlando likely won’t find a player that will instantly take the team to the next level, and speed up the rebuilding process.

But who can the Magic get for the second overall pick? Orlando will likely look to move one or two of their bad contracts together with the pick, and ideally look for a player that is good enough to build around. While superstars will be hard to come by, the Magic could also look for solid role players that could either be implemented into the team or packaged into another trade.

Here are a couple of trade suggestions. Keep in mind that this is just my personal subjective analysis and it’s not based on any kind of legitimate rumors. As such, there is a possibility that what you read below may appear as the ramblings of a mad man.
