The Orlando Magic, owners of the No. 2 pick in the upcoming NBA Draft, are "considering moving down" from their spot and have "quite a few suitors" interested in trading for their pick, according to The Orlando Sentinel's Brian K. Schmitz.

Kansas shooting guard Ben McLemore is currently the consensus projection to go No. 2 behind Kentucky big man Nerlens Noel, but McLemore plays the same position as Arron Afflalo, the Magic's leading scorer from last season (16.5 ppg).

Orlando also possesses two building blocks in center Nikola Vucevic and small forward Maurice Harkless, both acquired from the Sixers in the Dwight Howard trade.
