It is indeed NBA Draft week with the Draft set to take place Thursday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn at 7:30 p.m. and airing on ESPN. The Magic will be selecting second. You will be getting this reminder throughout the week.
What is pretty unknown right now is what direction the Magic will take with that second pick and how the Draft will even shake out. Even the Cavaliers, widely assumed to be selecting Nerlens Noel with the first pick, are not so sure about who they are taking. Or at least they are not letting the world know about it.
The Magic are not doing a whole lot to let the world into their decision-making process either. They could be looking at picking just about anyone invited into that green room — at least that has been narrowed down to 10 people including Ben McLemore, Victor Oladipo, Nerlens Noel and Trey Burke.
Hoping to shed a little light on the subject, and put my two cents in at least, I joined Adam Papageorgiou of Magic Basketball Online and Eric Lopez and Mary Stevens of Sports Talk Florida for a Magic Draft Roundtable on the ELOOnline Podcast.
In the podcast we discuss the options on the table for the Magic and what the Magic should be looking for in this Draft. The debate about whether to draft Ben McLemore or Victor Oladipo also heats up.
