Raptors, Magic make trade offers to Cavaliers for No. 3 overall pick in NBA Draft, per report

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

With Cade Cunningham expected to be drafted No. 1 overall, the two players they are likeliest to land at No. 3 both play positions that are theoretically filled on their roster. According to The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor, the Toronto Raptors, picking No. 4, and the Orlando Magic, picking No. 5, have both made trade offers to move up to No. 3. Orlando especially appears to be in strong position to make such a move if Cleveland is interested because it controls not only the No. 5 pick, but the No. 8 pick as well thanks to its midseason trade of Nikola Vucevic. Starting point guard Markelle Fultz is coming off of a torn ACL, so Orlando could potentially be targeting Gonzaga’s Jalen Suggs, expected to be the No. 4 overall pick to Toronto if the Raptors don’t make a trade, at No. 3.

Cleveland is at the point in its own rebuild in which talent should be the only priority.
