The Orlando Magic are in a great position sitting at No. 2 overall. They have been receiving a number of offers for their pick, and the offers are getting bigger and bigger the closer we get to the start of the draft. According to the latest reports, the Oklahoma City Thunder are hoping to move up to the No. 2 spot so that they can select former Indiana Hoosiers star guard Victor Oladipo.
From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:
Oklahoma City is pushing hard for a deal with Orlando to secure the No. 2 pick and draft Indiana’s Victor Oladipo, league sources tell Y!

Oladipo is one of the most highly sought after players in the 2013 draft class and he is considered by many to be one of the safest picks in the draft.
When you look at the holes on Oklahoma City’s roster, adding a player like Oladipo could go a long way towards helping the team return to the top of the Western Conference.
