1. Victor Oladipo
Oldadipo makes sense in a lot of ways. Eric Gordon is a free agent this off-season and they do not want him to return, and he will not have to with the addition of Oladipo. The Magic also have been going away from Oladipo a bit.
With Evan Fournier and Elfrid Payton in the backcourt it makes Oladipo expendable.
The big question is whether or not Oladipo alone is worth the six overall pick. Oladipo was a former second overall pick, and has averaged at least 13 points and 1.6 steals per game since entering the league. Still, he is not a real creator on offense, and while he improved his three-point shooting by year he is still a career 34-percent shooter from deep.
The Magic could be looking to throw the 41st overall pick in to obtain the sixth overall pick and that point it would be hard for the Pelicans to deny it.
With Oladipo you have a player who has yet to enter his prime at age 24, and has the defense and length that suits what Davis brings in the front court. The two young studs can grow together and they can try to find ways to move from some of their other pieces as they hope to build a young, athletic, defensive team.
