Report: Orlando Magic ‘considering moving down’ from No. 2 pick in NBA Draft
The Orlando Magic, owners of the No. 2 pick in the upcoming NBA Draft, are “considering moving down” from their spot and have “quite a few suitors” interested in trading for their pick, according to The Orlando Sentinel‘s Brian K. Schmitz.
Kansas shooting guard Ben McLemore is currently the consensus projection to go No. 2 behind Kentucky big man Nerlens Noel, but McLemore plays the same position as Arron Afflalo, the Magic’s leading scorer from last season (16.5 ppg).
