Orlando, which owns the second overall pick, has shown interest in two point guards: Michigan sophomore Trey Burke and Syracuse sophomore Michael Carter-Williams. Ford doesn't say whether Lehigh senior C.J. McCollum is on the Magic's proverbial radar, but he describes Orlando as "really interested" in Burke and "showing significant interest" in Carter-Williams.
Via MagicBasketballOnline, Burke told MLive.com that he has scheduled an individual workout with the Magic. Unlike some other teams, Orlando does not publicly disclose the names of Draft prospects for whom it hosts workouts.
Another player whom Orlando is reportedly considering--and one whose Draft stock is rising throughout the league, Ford says--is Indiana shooting guard Victor Oladipo. "I know he's the one guy in this draft that my head coach would love to have right now," one NBA general manager told Ford. "He's an impressive young man on and off the court."
Ford says Oladipo's impressive showing at the Draft Combine and his strong one-on-one interviews with several teams make him "a lock to go in the top 5." Ford lists Orlando as one of his "most likely landing spots," though he could slide past the Magic at no. 2 to the Charlotte Bobcats (4th) or the Phoenix Suns (5th).
