Magic Continue to Weigh Draft Options

The Magic have reportedly narrowed their shopping list down to three players – Victor Oladipo, Nerlens Noel and surprisingly Cody Zeller. The Magic will likely make their decision once they are on the clock. Orlando also seems to have the framework of a deal with the Los Angeles Clippers done that would land them Eric Bledsoe and Caron Butler in exchange for guard Arron Afflalo and possibly last year’s 19th pick Andrew Nicholson. There has been talk of a protected 2015 draft pick heading to L.A. as part of the deal, however it seems the Magic may be unwilling to part with draft assets unless another contract is moved off in the deal.
Sources close to the Clippers/Magic situation say that the possible deal hinges on the Clippers agreeing to the deal more so than Orlando. The Magic have also been aggressive in shopping their other options and have entertained offers on the No. 2 overall pick as well.
Do not be surprised if Orlando takes the Minnesota Timberwolves up on swapping the No. 2 for the No. 9 and the No. 26. The Wolves are said to be very high on Victor Oladipo.
