Trey Burke's shot at being the first player selected in the 2013 NBA draft appears to be over. The Cleveland Cavaliers won the league's annual draft lottery Tuesday night, ending the slim speculation that the former Wolverine could be the No. 1 pick in next month's draft. If the Cavaliers keep the pick, they certainly won't need to spend it on a point guard -- as former top overall selection Kyrie Irving enjoyed a breakout year in Cleveland last season. So No. 1 may be out, but what about No. 2? ESPN.com's Chad Ford believes it'll be in the cards, as the Orlando Magic -- a team in serious need of a point guard -- will be making the second pick. "The Magic need a point guard but might have been reluctant to take Burke at No. 1," Ford wrote Tuesday night. "What about at No. 2? I think there's a good chance. He's a bit small for his position, but Orlando needs a leader, someone with moxie, and Burke seems like the best fit. "(Former Kansas star) Ben McLemore is a possibility here, too." If Orlando doesn't take Burke, the former Michigan star and consensus national player of the year could slide a bit. Washington (No. 3) has a budding star point guard in John Wall, the Charlotte Bobcats (No. 4) got a great year from Kemba Walker last season and the Phoenix Suns (No. 5) just sunk a great deal of money into Goran Dragic. No. 6 could also be a possible destination, as the New Orleans Pelicans don't have a solid answer at the point guard position. Magic brass weren't giving any hints as to where they were leaning immediately after the lottery.
