The perpetual saga that surrounds Dwight Howard (pictured) will once again be a major factor in determining Orlando's draft strategy.
The Magic have to shift their primary focus to the point, with Jameer Nelson's uncertain future in Florida. The Magic could also look to grab a preliminary replacement for Howard. Power forward Ryan Anderson had a breakout 2011-12 campaign, and new GM Rob Hennigan may look to couple him with a big-time center.
Incumbent small forward Hedo Turkoglu isn't getting any younger either, and the Magic could always seek out a replacement through the draft. Finding a young, explosive wing scorer would be a step in the right direction toward retaining Howard.
Orlando will be engulfed in trade talk until the Howard matter is settled. For now, pencil them in for the best talent available at No. 19.
Best First-Round Fits: Quincy Miller, SF, Baylor; Fab Melo, C, Syracuse; Kendall Marshall, PG, North Carolina.
