2) Victor Oladipo, Shooting Guard, Indiana

Victor Oladipo had a great junior season at IU and decided to enter the draft. Choosing this year may have been his best bet, as going out as a 4-year graduate would have only prolonged his journey and put him in a richer draft class next year.

What is being driven at is that Oladipo still has some work to do. His jumper is better, but still needs work. He’s not a great ball handler. And yet, he’s a great enough athlete with an NBA body, to the point that scouts consider his talent worthwhile. He may translate to be a great defender, and GMs are realizing the value of great wing defenders in this era.

Basically, a lot of comparisons would render Oladipo compared to guards, but he’s really more of a 6’4″ Andre Iguodala or Luol Deng. He’s a defender who should be able to put some points on the board, but he shouldn’t be more than a No. 2 option, and preferably is a third scoring option.

The Magic would take that on gladly with two good interior scorers already on the roster in Vucevic and Tobias Harris.
