Cohen 8-Ball: Intriguing Questions
Cohen’s Analysis: If a team that was desperate to make the playoffs this season but could easily slip next year and miss the postseason entirely was willing to trade an unprotected 2014 draft pick, should the Magic offer one of their valuable assets to try and attain that pick? By all accounts, the next two franchise superstars will potentially be available in the draft in 2014. League policy doesn’t permit mentioning prospects until they have officially declared for the draft. It’s tempting; indeed, especially if Orlando doesn’t feel it will be in position to net a franchise player via trade or free agency.
