The 2nd Pick in the Draft or trade down?



The last time the Magic were in the Draft lottery was in 2006 where they selected J.J. Redick with the 11th pick. I personally can't remember the last time I actually watched the NBA Draft lottery. I can say though I was excited watching it unfurl as the draft positions were being announced.

Now that there is no question as to where everyone will draft. There seems to be some disappointment from a few fans that the Magic did not get the 1st overall pick. While there may be more trade value with having that pick, I still think the 2nd pick holds about the same value depending on if McLemore or Noel is on the board when the Magic pick. I also think it's a potential blessing that the Magic pick 2nd especially if Noel is off the board when they pick.

I've seen Chad Ford's latest mock draft which has the Magic picking Trey Burke with the 2nd pick. I also know he noted that McLemore would also be a possible candidate for the Magic to draft. With that in mind here lies my questions: Is Trey Burke worth drafting as a #2 pick? or Is McLemore the guy to draft? Or Do you think the Magic will trade down and hope Burke is still available or target Oladipo, or McCollum.

What do you think or hope the Magic do?
