Report: Orlando Magic Still Looking To Trade No. 2 Pick in 2013 NBA Draft


According to a report from Yahoo Sports, the Orlando Magic are still trying to trade the second overall pick in tomorrow’s NBA Draft.

Earlier today it was reported that the Magic were considering selecting former University of Indiana product Victor Oladipo and while they still might, Adrian Wojnarowski is hinting that the Magic still are trying to trade the pick.

Per Wojo:

Orlando has been doing a great deal of work on players in late lottery-mid 1st round range, weighing possible deals out of No. 2 spot.

The Magic have reportedly been attempting to deal the pick since the NBA Draft Lottery last month.

Initially there appeared to be interest in former Kansas guard Ben McLemore but poor workouts along with questions about his work ethic have the Magic rumored to be looking elsewhere like the aforementioned Oladipo, assuming they are to keep the pick.

As to what type of offers the Magic have received, that we don’t know. The Cleveland Cavaliers, who select first overall have been trying to move their pick as well but have continually been rebuffed in their efforts.
