On Wednesday afternoon, Orlando Magic general manager to the collected media the Magic were “considering trade offers from 3-4 teams.”

He did not specifically say if any of those rumors would include the second overall pick.

According to Yahoo’s Marc Spears, they don’t.

“Magic has nothing of note going on trade-wise and expect to use the 2nd selection in tomorrow’s draft, sources say,” Spears tweeted.

Obviously the Magic could be playing thing close to the vest and you never know just how reliable some of these sources. The Magic could also be trying to get back into the late lottery by using another asset like Arron Afflalo, a future pick or by absorbing a contract with their trade exception for a pick (Dallas at 13, perhaps?).
