The Raptors on Thursday acquired a future second-round draft pick from the Magic in exchange for Jeff Weltman, who was released from his contract with Toronto and hired by Orlando as president of basketball operations.

According to multiple reports, the Magic will send one of their two second-round picks in the 2018 draft to the Raptors. Besides its own pick, Orlando also owns the Los Angeles Lakers’ second-round pick in 2018 (acquired as part of the Dwight Howard trade in 2012) and will send the lesser of the two to Toronto.

Weltman, who was promoted by the Raptors to their general manager position last September, was hired by the Magic this week and formally introduced on Wednesday.

LeBron James tested his injured left ankle during a portion of practice Sunday, but it’s still not known if he’ll play in Cleveland’s season opener.

James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
