The Orlando Magic is an interesting team. They have a lot of young defensive minded talent. Tobias Harris will be a restricted free agent so they might match any offer for him. In that case they would need a big that can either shoot or protect the rim.
5) Orlando Magic – Kristaps Porzingis (PF – Sevilla)
He is an athletic power forward who can knock down shots. He’s stated that he’s not a stiff European. He needs to get stronger to play in the post more but he’s not afraid to go down there. He has good foot work and has good touch around the basket. With so many defensive players the Magic can use help on the offensive end.
He can run the floor and work from the mid-range. He complements Nikola Vucevic because he won’t clog the lane. With his size he can play both the power forward and center position. Pick-and-pops with Victor Oladipo and Elfrid Payton will open up the floor.
A lineup of Porzingis-Gordon-Harris-Oladipo-Payton could cause some problems on both ends of the floor. He’s still very young but he understands that he has a lot to work on. It will be interesting to see if he starts or come off the bench behind Gordon.
Coach Skiles will make this team better defensively and will put Porzingis in position to make plays. He gives them versatility and outside shooting.
