Jabari Parker Would Be a Good Fit for Orlando Magic
I wrote about why Orlando should shy away from the automated studs in the draft and focus on what the franchise needs to become a force to be reckon within the Eastern Conference in the foreseeable future.
Well, I am back to tell you that if the Magic are high enough on the draft board, and Jabari Parker is waiting to get his name called, the Magic should do it. Why? Because I saw into the future, that’s why.
It was a glorious future, with Victor Oladipo, Parker, Tobias Harris and Nikola Vucevic anchoring a deep Magic team as they rampaged through the Eastern Conference. Parker will bring a dynamic to the Magic not seen since the days of Tracy McGrady. Parker can shoot, create his own offense, rebound, pass and play defense. Do these qualities remind you of a certain NBA superstar in Miami? It should.
Parker has a greater upside than Andrew Wiggins, who is projected to be the first player off the board in the draft. Coming out of Duke, Parker should be well equipped to handle the rigors of the NBA from the start. Parker would also compliment well with Oladipo, as these two will make a deadly two-way force the rest of the league would be envious of.
I am not backing off of my assertion that the Magic should address its point guard needs in the draft. But what I am saying is that if Parker is still in the green room when the Magic is on the clock, Orlando should pull the trigger.
Parker is a superstar in waiting, and it would be nice to see him develop into that in Central Florida.
