NBA News: Bulls Send Randolph to Magic
Looking to shed some salary, the Chicago Bulls have reportedly agreed to send Anthony Randolph to the Orlando Magic as well as two second round picks. Randolph was originally acquired by the Bulls from Denver on a draft day trade to land sharp-shooter Doug McDermott in this year’s draft.
Bulls indeed sending Anthony Randolph and second-round picks to Magic. @sam_amick 1st. Moving up to get McDermott cost 3 2nds and 1 1st.

At 6’11 Randolph will provide some depth in the post for Orlando, and brings 7 years of NBA experience, despite being only 24-years-old. Last season for Denver, Randolph averaged 4.8 points and just under 3 rebounds a game in limited playing time. For his career, Randolph has averaged just over 7 points a game.
In Randolph deal, Bulls get draft rights to Milovan Rakovic (who I’ve never heard of either). Magic get better of Bulls’ 2nds in 15 & 16. — K.C. Johnson (@KCJHoop) July 14, 2014
If you are unfamiliar with Milovan Rakovic he is a 6’10 center from Serbia that has never played in the NBA. The Magic obtained his rights during the 2007 NBA Draft.
I’d look for the Magic to stay busy this offseason as they probably have another move or two up their sleeve.
