Trae Young hinting he wants to be drafted by Magic with social media activity?
Oklahoma star Trae Young is projected to be a high-to-mid-lottery pick in this year’s NBA Draft, and he may already have a preferred destination in mind.
On Thursday, Orlando Magic blog The Lando shared recent liked tweets by the freshman guard that seemed to hint at a desire to be drafted by the Magic.
Based off Trae Young’s likes, it seems he’d like to be drafted by the Magic come June.

Young, 19, currently leads the nation in both points (30.3) and assists per game (9.6), drawing high praise from the NBA’s elite for his all-around game.
As for the Magic, they are tied for the worst record in the league at the moment and still lack a surefire franchise cornerstone. Incumbent starting point guard Elfrid Payton will also be a restricted free agent after the season.
Young, a Lubbock, Texas native, does not appear to have any ties to the Orlando area, but the Magic could still make for a solid landing spot for him.
