NBA Mock Draft: Orlando Magic Trade Arron Afflalo, Acquire #17 From Celtics

New, 4 comments

SB Nation's NBA Network conducted a mock draft with bloggers from each team site making or trading "their" team's pick. We continue with the next pick in the 2014 NBA Mock Draft with Orlando Pinstriped Post selecting big man Jusuf Nurkić following a major trade.

NBA Mock Draft Pick #17, Jusuf Nurkic, Center, KK Cedevita Zagreb

SB Nation's Magic blog Orlando Pinstriped Post explains the move to acquire this pick as part of a three-team deal that included Aaron Afflalo getting shipped off to Boston:

Boston receives Arron Afflalo from Orlando and Ömer Aşik from Houston.
Houston receives a Traded Player Exception from Boston.
Orlando receives Jeremy Lin from Houston and the 17th overall pick from Boston.

With this deal, the Magic realize a solid return on their investment in Arron Afflalo, netting a young, productive starting point guard and another pick to help their rebuild.

With the 17th pick in the 2014 SB Nation NBA Mock Draft, the Orlando Magic select Jusuf Nurkić of KK Cedevita Zagreb.
