The Orlando Magic have already had a huge offseason by hiring Frank Vogel as their new head coach after Scott Skiles chose to step down. Vogel will be a huge addition for the Magic, and he is the type of coach that can take the Magic to the next level. Now, the Magic have to focus on bringing in more talent for him to use.

Looking ahead at the upcoming draft, there are a lot of players that can be acquired for the right price around the NBA. Some players are not openly available, but if a team comes with the right deal, a team will pull the trigger.

Philip Rossman-Reich of FanSidedopined that the Magic should target a Blake Griffin trade with the Los Angeles Clippers on draft night. He suggested that the Magic could deal Aaron Gordon, Victor Oladipo, Ersan Iyasova, and the No. 11 overall pick in the draft for Griffin. It may seem like a crazy idea, but diving deeper into the deal, it might be more interesting than people think.

Griffin was rumored to be available for trade at the trade deadline last season. He has been injured quite a bit during his career with the Clippers and has been unable to take his team to the NBA Finals. Chris Paul isn’t getting any younger, and a shakeup of the roster could be intriguing to Doc Rivers.
