The 2014 NBA draft has the potential of yielding the best prospects in recent memory. There are three or four guys near the top that are almost certain to produce immediately, but there are also some very talented guys that round out the top 10. For Orlando, drafting well is a priority because the team has two picks in the first round.
Getting rid of Dwight Howard may have been a very smart move for Orlando because they will have another pick in the middle part of the first round. Orlando will receive a first-round pick from either the Knicks or Nuggets, whichever team finishes with a better record.
I have put together a list of 10 guys that the Magic should keep a close watch on. The first half of the list contains guys that could be selected with that second pick. The last half of the spots on the list are guys that will be in contention for Orlando’s No. 1 selection.
Team needs were loosely considered in this big board, but one has to think that if Orlando is in the top three, it becomes a situation where it takes the best available player.
