NBA Draft 2013: Orlando Magic Want Victor Oladipo Over Ben McLemore?


Man, somebody better call the Fansided fire department because it is smokey in here.

In just another of many daily rumors related to the 2013 NBA Draft, the Orlando Magic appear to be doing their best to throw a wrench in the upcoming festivities, suggesting that they’re more interested in Indiana’s Victor Oladipo than Kansas’ Ben McLemore.

Of course, just weeks ago, McLemore pretty much could have bought a home in Orlando since it was all but certain the Magic were going to draft the guard but according to ESPN insider Chad Ford – not the case:

While McLemore might have more pure upside, I continue to hear that Oladipo has the upper hand. McLemore was in Orlando last week, but according to multiple accounts, his workout wasn’t terrific. Noel is a strong possibility, too, if he doesn’t go No. 1 to the Cavs.

For what it’s worth, Ford does have the Magic selecting Oladipo in hist most recent 2013 Mock NBA Draft.
