5 First-Round Options for Orlando Magic

The Orlando Magic will be walking into a loaded draft with the hopes of coming out with another franchise player to pair up with the likes of Victor Oladipo and Tobias Harris. Here are the five choices that we feel the Magic should explore in the first round of the 2014 NBA Draft.

The one position the Magic need to upgrade is point guard, and Ennis will be a perfect fit to Oladipo in the backcourt with his speed and court vision.

4. Andrew Wiggins

Wiggins is the most coveted player in the draft, and he could add frontcourt depth to an Orlando team that really needs it. But Wiggins may already be off the board by the time Orlando has its first pick, so Wiggins donning a Magic uniform is, for now, wishful thinking.

3. Joel Embiid

Embiid made a name for himself in his freshman year at Kansas, and he could also provide frontcourt depth for the Magic. And unlike his teammate, he may be available by the time the Magic have their first pick.

2. Marcus Smart

Smart is the ideal point guard for the Magic. He is big, can create his own offense, can pass and plays tough defense. If Parker is off the board by the time Orlando picks, this would be the smart option (no pun intended).

In truth, the Magic already have a player similar to Parker in Tobias Harris. But Parker is a franchise player, and if the Magic land the No. 1 or 2 pick in the draft, Parker would be the immediate choice for Orlando.
