NBA Draft Rumors: Orlando Magic to take best player available


The Orlando Magic currently have the third worst record in the NBA, which means they could not draft any lower than sixth overall.

After next season, the Magic will have decisions to make on forward Tobias Harris and center Nikola Vucevic, arguably their two best players.

According to Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders, the Magic’s needs and impending free agents won’t influence their decision in the draft and they will be selecting the best player available.

Although they are not necessarily “locked on one guy,” several reports have suggested the Magic have Kansas Jayhawks’ forward Andrew Wiggins and Australian point guard Dante Exum, in that order, atop their draft board.

    Yea im rooting for us getting wiggings. We would be almost championship ready with him. Parker would be next. And i see no need to trade any one but andrew nichlson. Exum would be a perfect fit to. Can’t go wrong with any of these guys. We are bound for the playoffs next year. Regardless of any kid we add to the team.
