The Magic hold a pair of lottery picks and an early second-round selection in this month’s draft. What picks would be ideal at those spots? Jeremy Woo of ESPN weighs in on that subject and believes Overtime Elite shooting guard Ausar Thompson and Kansas shooting guard Gradey Dick would make nice fits at No. 6 and No. 11, respectively. Belmont small forward Ben Sheppard would give the Magic another shooting option if they chose him at No. 36, Woo adds.
We have more from the Southeast Division:
- The Magic have their eyes on shooting guard Gary Trent Jr. in free agency, according to Heavy.com’s Sean Deveney. Trent is planning to decline his option so that he can enter the market. Fellow Raptors guard Fred VanVleet is doing the same but the Magic would rather develop Cole Anthony and Jalen Suggs for another season before addressing the point guard spot, Deveney writes.
- UConn big man Adama Sanogo is among six prospects who will visit the Hawks on Wednesday, Lauren Williams of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution tweets. Miami guard Isaiah Wong, Virginia Tech forward Justyn Mutts, Kentucky forward Chris Livingston, Santa Clara forward Keshawn Justice and Gonzaga guard Rasir Bolton will also work out for Atlanta.
