Orlando just got an absolute STEAL at 19
 
My boy Drew is going to be a VERY good player for them for a long time. They did well to land him now. I'm not saying he'll ever be as good as Dwight, but he'll be a very good starter for them that helps put pieces together to replace him.

Going to be awkward rooting for Orlando since they're in the East, but it's about to happen. Magic are number 2 in my heart, and I don't do the whole "2nd favorite team" shit.

Oh, because he went to a small school? Like Bob Lanier. Or more recently Damian Lillard. Dude dominated the A10, a VERY good basketball conference.

Could be. Thepotential is definately there, however there is a reason that he dropped to 19th, and wasn't selected 1st.

well that's not really a fair statement. Nobody was going 1st but Davis. Then there is a lot of deep talent in this draft. 19th isn't the 2nd round. You're looking for role guys at 19. They got a guy who can start in the NBA down the road, in my mind.

I never heard of the guy til tonight, but his highlights certainly stood out. If I didn't know any better I'd put him in my top 5 just based on first impressions.

Solid role player and that's about all I thought. Plus if we re sign Anderson he will see very little minutes as he can't play the 3 or the 5 apparently.

He's much more talented then Harper, he's a safe pick from the look of it. Solid contributor from the bench right away apparently.

Easy, there.

It's a decent conference, but don't get carried away.

A solid role player at 19 isn't too bad if he is the safe pick people think he is. May not have star potential but at least he should be rotation ready right away if Anderson walks.
