Which young players are going to shine?

The Orlando Magic have young players playing major minutes, and few have had stand-out performances, but the question is who is going to be consistent enough to leave a stamp going into the offseason.

There have been players that have had career nights and have played better in their bigger roles.

Mohamed Bamba achieved his career-high with 21-points against the Milwaukee Bucks and R.J. Hampton scoring his career-high 16 points against the Denver Nuggets (matching it late against the San Antonio Spurs).

Chuma Okeke has slowed down since his outburst, but since the trade has averaged 13.1 points and 5.4 rebounds per game. He has also shown his passing ability averaging 3.4 assists.

Cole Anthony returned from his rib injury and will have the chance to take back his starting spot from Michael Carter-Williams and become the starting point guard again. But he is starting to get his legs back under him and resume the progress he left off two months ago.

There is overlapping on this team by position, and there is competition for these positions. They must become consistent to develop trust with Clifford and the front office.

Next. Orlando Magic still building trust on defense. dark

The front office is likely to mold the roster for fit instead of having a lot of young raw talent. The young players have to prove that they can be part of a winning culture and be consistent in the role they are given. All of these players have shown flashes of what they can do. This team has a bright future, but the question remains of who will be a part of it.
