According to a report from ESPN Insider Chad Ford, the Magic prefer Indiana wing Victor Oladipo to Kansas sharpshooter Ben McLemore, the two players the Magic will likely decide between in next week’s draft.

Ford, who projects the Magic to select Oladipo, says “while McLemore might have more pure upside, I continue to hear that Oladipo has the upper hand.” Ford went on to say that McLemore’s Magic workout “wasn’t terrific.”

If the Magic can’t find a point guard, like Eric Blesdoe, through a trade, Michigan point guard Trey Burke could still be in play.

Obviously Nerlens Noel will be in play if the Cavaliers pass on him.
