The relative weakness of the 2013 draft has GMs posturing to deal picks. The Orlando Magic’s #2 overall selection may be coveted by teams who feel there is a prospect worth obtaining.

Among the players teams may seek to select include Kansas’ Ben McLemore, Otto Porter of Georgetown and Victor Oladipo of Indiana. All could potentially land at the No. 2 pick, and two of the three main big men (Cody Zeller and Alex Len) have fallen in the draft.

The lack of standout prospects in this draft renders a high pick nearly worthless, so Hennigan has his work cut out for him.  The hope that lower lottery teams will fall in love with a prospect is Hennigan’s best hope for peddling the pick.
