The more I watch Burke the more I think he'll just be Jameer 2.0

a long-term starter but not much beyond that

I still think the Magic are gonna try and add another first round pick, my "dream" scenario would be walking away with 1 of Bazz/McLemore/Goodwin and one of the pg's in this draft, ideally Smart or Burke.

If by outside chance we go big Noel has actually improved alot since the start of the season, if nothing else he could be a Chandler type big, he's a force on defense, finishes strong at the rim and plays pretty unselfishly, would be a nice compliment to our other bigs who don't have alot of defensive upside.

I agree with this. My hope is that we can acquire a mid-first round pick and use the top 5 pick on Shabazz or McLemore and use the mid on one of the remaining point guards.


I just dont see the need in that. if were not drafting a future franchise pg i think we have more needs at sf and backup c/pf. We already have moore whos turned out to be a great future backup pg so unless your picking the next irving or rose then i wouldnt waste a pick on pg

I don't think we have a solid back up point guard. I think Moore is a good 2-guard, but not point guard.

Agree. Moore is a very good shooter (when he's on), but he's not someone I'd trust to run our offense on a regular basis.

I agree with you guys. Moore is better suited as a backup 2 and a part time 1.

How do you feel about his speed and athleticism? I've only seen the youtube vids and I haven't see too much speed in the clips. Am I mistaken?

Its not necessarily SPEED but he has AMAZING deceptiveness. That will keep him as an awesome PG in the league.

We need a PG and SF and Draft mock dont have any in their top 10, so we might fight for play off and still get the player we need

We are not making the playoffs at this point. We are closer to having the worst record in the league than the 8th playoff spot.

A long way from NBA ready


Look folks, this is a very, very weak draft. Even the ticker is suggesting the Babycats trade their pick. The implication is that NBA scouts are not even high McLemore, Zeller, Muhammad, or Noel. (All four are clearly future NBA starters, just none projects as Certain-Stud).

I see Noel, McLemore, and Muhammad having great careers. I think 2 out of these 3 will be very very good so IMO trying to nab 1 of them even in this "weak" draft would be sick. **** if teams are so scared of the draft lets trade up and gamble! lol

I am confident that Marshall will in 4-years time develop into a servicable starter. If GM Hennigan can acquire him on the cheap, then I am thus quite pleased as a Magic fan.

With fewer than three minutes remaining in Kansas' 61-44 win over Baylor, McLemore injured his ankle. He was down on the court for several minutes, but was able to walk off the court to the locker room.

The extent of McLemore's injury is unclear right now, although head coach Bill Self shared some details on his post-game radio show.

CJ Moore @cjmoore4
Self says on radio interview McLemore has a sprained ankle. Should be OK. McLemore says he heard a pop.

I might get flamed for saying this but i don't care it's only my preference, i actually like Goodwin more than Mclemore to be honest. Not knocking Mclemore in any sense it's just that i like Goodwin's game a bit more

Mclemores J>>>

Goodwins ability to get to the rim>>>

I think both can be all stars in the NBA & would be happy with either one.
