Orlando Magic Daily Big Board 3.0

The rest of the First Round

PG. Wildcats . Dalen Terry. 24. player. 511.

Dalen Terry was also a big riser thanks to his Combine showing. Terry averaged 8.0 points per game and 3.9 assists per game. He shot 50.2-percent from the floor and 36.4-percent from beyond the arc during his sophomore season at Arizona.

Terry is a 6-foot-7 guard and has played at sort of a smaller scale for the Wildcats. The question is how much can he scale up or is he just going to be an energy guard off the bench. But the All-Pac-12 Defensive Team player is someone that will find his way.

25. player. 524. . C. Razorbacks . Jaylin Williams

Jaylin Williams is a bit undersized as a center, but he is a big energy guy and someone who is going to boost whatever team he is on. He was one of the national leaders in charges and was able to give Chet Holmgren trouble with the amount of pressure he put on the rim and his relentlessness on both ends.

Watching Robert Williams be such a key for the Boston Celtics should help boost his stock as Jaylin Williams would provide a lot of the same qualities.

Williams would still have to expand his offensive game to help take that next step. And he is a bit undersized as a center.

. PF. Buckeyes . E.J. Liddell. 26. player. 490

E.J. Liddell is an All-Big Ten Defensive Team player who averaged 19.4 points and 7.9 rebounds per game. He showed some good range too, hitting 37.4-percent from beyond the arc, a nice rise year to year for the junior. At 6-foot-7, he may be a bit undersized to play power forward unless that 3-point shot becomes more consistent.

Christian Braun. 27. player. 462. . SF. Jayhawks

Christian Braun is just an overall solid prospect from the Kansas Jayhawks. Baun averaged 14.1 points per game and 6.5 rebounds per game. He shot 83.6-percent from deep and that will be a good growing point for him as he moves to the NBA. He reportedly already worked out for the Orlando Magic.

Kennedy Chandler. 28. player. 534. . SG. Volunteers

A lot of people are pretty high on Kennedy Chandler, especially after his strong finish to the season that included winning SEC Tournament Most Outstanding Player. Chandler though is a bundle of inconsistency. He will drop a big game with dazzling drives to the basket one game and then throw up a clunker because of his poor shooting the next.

. SF. Blue Devils . Wendell Moore Jr.. 29. player. 434

Wendell Moore Jr. is sort of a lesser version of Trevor Keels — which is one of the amazing things about that Duke team. Moore is more of a stopper on that front. He is a good defender with a more inconsistent 3-point shot.

38. . SG. Orlando Magic. Jaden Hardy. 30. player

Jaden Hardy was once considered a surefire prospect and someone who would continue the success of the G-League Ignite. Instead, that experience seems to have exposed him some. The talent is all still there though. He can attack the basket well and finish. But everything else about his game was inconsistent at the G-League level.

Patrick Baldwin Jr.. 31. player. 89. . F. Milwaukee Bucks

Like Jaden Hardy, Patrick Baldwin Jr. was considered a can’t-miss prospect at the start of the season. But his year at UW-Milwaukee was a complete disaster. He struggled in all phases before injury and COVID ended his season. Baldwin did not help himself at the Combine. He measured well, but did not measure well athletically and did not participate in 5-on-5 drills.

32. player. 443. . SG. Fighting Irish . Blake Wesley

Blake Wesley was a great scorer at Notre Dame. But he struggled with his outside shot (a common refrain from guards in this year’s draft class). His success likely depends on whether he can hit from the outside consistently.

G. Orlando Magic. MarJon Beauchamp. 33. player. 38.

MarJon Beauchamp is an intriguing prospect because of his athleticism and ability to finish around the basket. The outside shooting was a problem in the G-League and will be the big question for his ultimate fit in the NBA.

C. Wildcats . Christian Koloko. 34. player. 511.

Christian Koloko was one of the best shot blockers in college basketball last year and was a defensive stopper for this good Arizona team. Koloko is very raw offensively. But if he can hold his own in the paint and add rim protection, he will find a role off the bench.

503. . PF. Rams . David Roddy. 35. player

David Roddy is a unique prospect at the forward spot. He is a bit undersized for the spot and is still improving as a 3-point shooter. But he has made great strides there. His ability to attack the paint and hit line drives to the basket will serve him well and could allow him to fill a role moving forward. His key will be whether he can defend the perimeter.
