Less than 15 minutes before the start of the 2013 NBA Draft, the Orlando Magic continue to listen to trade offers regarding the second overall pick. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that the Oklahoma City Thunder as well as the Minnesota Timberwolves covet Indiana shooting guard Victor Oladipo, who will almost certainly be available when Orlando is on the clock. Ken Berger of CBSSports.com confirms that report.

Magic general manager Rob Hennigan said Wednesday that he had heard several "tempting" trade offers regarding the second pick.

Minnesota had reportedly been offering a trade package built around second-year forward Derrick Williams and the 9th and 26th overall picks in Thursday's Draft.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are on the clock with the first pick beginning at 7:30 PM Eastern on ESPN.
