According to Joe Kotoch of Sheridan Hoops, the Orlando Magic “covet” Kansas guard Ben McLemore.

With Kentucky center Nerlens Noel’s injury troubles, the trade of J.J. Redick and a potential future trade of Arron Afflalo, McLemore’s positional need and shooting ability would make a nice fit alongside Maurice Harkless on the wing.

Kotoch ¬†claims “sources” say both the Magic and the New Orleans would be “strongly inclined” to trade the top pick should they win the lottery because both teams have young centers in Nikola Vucevic and Anthony Davis.

Kotoch goes on to call Michigan guard Trey Burke and Indiana wing Victor Oladipo “fallback options.”
