Update: Darko deal almost done

ESPN's Marc Stein reports that the deal sending Darko and Carlos Arroyo to the Orlando Magic for Kelvin Cato and a #1 pick is almost complete.

The sides, according to sources, are bartering over the extent of lottery protection Orlando would have on the first-round pick it has agreed to send Detroit along with center Kelvin Cato for Milicic and guard Carlos Arroyo.

It's thought Orlando is seeking to retain this year's first-round pick -- and convey its 2007 first-rounder to Detroit instead -- if the Magic's pick winds up in the top seven of the June draft.
