NBA Draft 2013 rumor: Magic unlikely to trade second pick, according to report

USA TODAY Sports

As of Wednesday night, the Magic reportedly weren't impressed with any of the trade offers they'd heard for the second overall pick in Thursday's NBA Draft.

Instead of trading it away, the Orlando Magic are expected to use the second overall pick in Thursday's 2013 NBA Draft, reports Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports.

A few hours before Spears' message, Magic general manager Rob Hennigan told the media that he's heard several "tempting" trade offers for the second pick, which offers he would evaluate in the hours leading up to Thursday's Draft. He also said that if he did not trade the pick, he expected the player he selects with it to be with the team on opening night.

One trade offer reportedly came from the Minnesota Timberwolves, who presented Hennigan, among other GMs, with a trade offer involving 22-year-old forward Derrick Williams and two selections in the 2013 Draft.

Orlando has picked first overall three times in history, but has otherwise never selected higher than fourth.
