The Orlando Magic will likely have a top pick in the 2018 Draft. With March Madness just days away, here are the players Magic fans should keep an eye on.
The 2018 NCAA Tournament is just days away. For Orlando Magic fans, this is the best chance they will get to see some of the top NBA Draft prospects in action.
Players will be playing the biggest games of their careers and will be constantly faced with high-pressure situations. A player’s performance in the tournament may not define a player, but the magnifying glass will be on them.
Orlando looks poised for a top Draft pick. With players like Arizona Wildcats center Deandre Ayton and Duke Blue Devils forward Marvin Bagley projected at the top of mock drafts, Magic fans should tune in and take a look at what could be the future of the franchise.
The problem for Orlando fans will be the number of prospects they need to watch. The Magic can draft nearly every position. With Aaron Gordon‘s future still cloudy and Jonathan Isaac‘s injury-riddled season, the “best player available” mindset will likely be the front office’s plan.
The big centers and flashy guards like Alabama Crimson Tide point guard Collin Sexton are all options for Orlando. Magic fans, keep the remote close because March Madness will be a busy time.
In what will also be an early second-round pick, Magic fans should also turn into contests featuring mid-major programs. It may be considered a crap shoot when the second round comes around, but a quick look at some second-round prospects like Witchita State Shockers’ guard Landry Shamet will be worth it.
