Hate to do it, but 10 games into the season and the Magic do have the 7th worst record in the league. Might as well get the conversation started early JUST IN CASE :lol:

The floor of this team sadly enough is still more than likely 35 games. Which would put us out of reach of the top prospects as usual. I suppose with the new lottery odds it's better then what it was, but still not ideal.

As far as this draft goes, I'm all in on this Cole Anthony kid.

I’d love Cole Anthony but we’d have to get some serious luck to be there for him. I dunno a lot of others yet it’s stilly early but I still can’t believe Lonzo’s brother is projected so high.

Its still really early but looking at some mocks it is good to see alot of PGs and SGs as thats clearly what we need. But until we get a new GM making the decisions its hard to get excited.

Allready? :lol:

I still have some hope that we will turn around and win games. So, will just throw a 2nd round name, my boy Neemias Queta.
Great shot blocker, rebounder and physical tools. Very raw offensively. My best case prediction for him is a Clint Capela type of player.

If the draft was today, the Magic would slot 6th.

We won't be able to get James Wiseman but we should get a good player if we have a top 10 pick. If we make the playoffs, how deep is this draft?

Magic will be middle of the pack again this year. Might as well cut this list down to players in the range of 10/12+ and make it a prerequisite that they can’t shoot.

The East is so laughably bad outside of the top 5-6 teams. Barring a major injury to Vuc (meaning more minutes for Bamba), this team is picking outside of the lottery.

With the way that the draft is so fluid.... you still kinda have to look at everyone because the top dogs at the beginning of the season could fall and the players you overlook will rise.

I remember when people didn't give much attention to morant at the start of the season when he was ranked in the 20's.... 2 weeks later he was in top pick status and people were getting mad cuz he's "out of our range now". lol

45 minutes earlier:

We have a trade to announce; the Orlando Magic have traded the 15th pick to the Los Angeles Clippers for the 30th pick, cash considerations and a 2030 top-55 protected pick.
