NBA Draft Results: Why Orlando Magic Made a Huge Mistake

Even though the Orlando Magic didn't draft a couple of scrubs with their first and second-round picks, the franchise still made a huge mistake in the 2012 NBA Draft.

ESPN's Chris Broussard reported, that the day after the draft Dwight Howard told General Manager Rob Hennigan that he wanted to be traded to the Brooklyn Nets. It's apparent that the new draftees were not to Howard's liking, and he's also not sold on the direction of the Magic.  

Power forward Andrew Nicholson and center Kyle O'Quinn definitely add depth to Orlando's frontcourt. However, with other holes at point guard and small forward, the Magic should have drafted a wing player since there were still quite a few suitable players left after the Magic's 19th pick.

As selfish as it sounds, this man child wasn't given what he wanted, and as a result he wants out of Orlando.
