Orlando Magic Draft Board: Post-Lottery Edition

The Orlando Magic have to be especially excited about the 2014 NBA draft, seeing as they'll have two picks in the books by the time the first dozen prospects are off the board. Thanks to the trade that sent Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers before the 2012-13 season, they're picking up that extra selection.

As a result, Orlando will be taking its first high-upside rookie at No. 4, then waiting eight picks before taking another one. Quite a few teams are sure to be jealous of that ability.

Orlando isn't guaranteed to use either of those picks. Trades are certainly possible, especially if the team decides it already has enough young talent and wants a veteran standout on the roster.

But if it does decide to use them, it'll have plenty of options. It's hard to pinpoint one biggest need for the Magic, simply because there are so many of them.

Adding a point guard would be beneficial, especially since Jameer Nelson won't be around forever. Shooting guard is an option as well, seeing as Victor Oladipo can play at either spot in the backcourt. The forward positions could use improvement, and center is really the only spot with someone absolutely locked into the lineup (Nikola Vucevic). 

So, who's it going to be?
