The Critical Improvement Each Young Orlando Magic Player Must Make

If the Orlando Magic are to make this transitional year a successful one, the team's younger players will need to make some significant strides forward over the next 12 months.

Given that the organization has clearly shown it is focused on rebuilding through youth, the Magic and coach Jacque Vaughn will be desperate to see some improvement from the team's group of talented but rather raw youngsters.

Although the team has some veteran pieces on its roster, many are unlikely to feature in Orlando's future for a significant period of time. As a result, the responsibility of taking this team back into the NBA's elite lies with the plethora of young talent the Magic acquired this offseason.

Some are rookies straight from the draft, while others have been in the league for a short period of time. If the Magic are to begin a successful rebuild, then all need to improve dramatically over the course of the 2012-13 NBA season.
