INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- The Cleveland Cavaliers traded the rights to second-round pick Justin Harper to Orlando for future draft picks.

The Cavaliers selected the 6-foot-10 Harper with the No. 34 overall pick before sending the forward to the Magic for the club's second-round picks in 2013 and 2014.

Considered one of the best outside shooting big men in this draft, Harper averaged 17.9 points and 6.9 rebounds as a senior. He made 44 percent of his 3-pointers last season.

There have been some questions about Harper's willingness to play inside, but it's his perimeter game that intrigued the Cavs.

Cleveland still has the No. 52 overall pick.
