With a completely revamped roster, head coach Jacque Vaughn and the Orlando Magic have many roster decisions to ponder, including the starter at the power forward slot.

With a silky smooth jumper and a refined post-game, there is no denying that this 22-year-old will see major minutes in the rotation this upcoming season. The question is, however, will Nicholson be starting the game on the pine or on the floor.
