NBA Finals 2009 - Game 5 - Lakers Beat Magic 99-86

This comes as no surprise.

Orlando is still recovering from the loss of Dwight Howard. After drafting Victor Oladipo, Orlando envisions turning him into a point guard, that’s when rumors circulated that Jameer Nelson’s time in Orlando was near an end.

According to Marc Stein of ESPN, Orlando is listening to offers involving draft picks.

The Magic, according to the latest rumbles, would surrender Nelson today if offered a future first-round pick for him. Orlando GM Rob Hennigan continues to chase draft picks and young assets above all else as he remakes the Magic.

The problem, of course, is that teams have never been more reluctant to surrender first-round picks — and the cap-friendly contracts they carry — than we see nowadays.

Orlando already has two 1st-round picks in the upcoming draft, which is expected to be one of the best ever.
