NBA Insiders Amin Elhassan and Bradford Doolittle break down the draft history, needs and potential picks of the 14 teams eligible for the NBA draft lottery this year. With some help from Chad Ford's Big Board of Top 30 prospects, we take a look at the Orlando Magic


Personnel needs: PG, SG, PF

Major need: The most glaring need for Orlando is to bring in a playmaker who doesn't just create offense for others but can also be a threat himself. The Magic need a player who will elevate the offensive production and efficiency for a team that ranked 27th in the league in points scored per 100 possessions (101.6) and 20th in effective field goal percentage (48.5). Another point of emphasis should be the ability to generate "easy" points, as the Magic were 29th in 3-point percentage, 29th in FTA rate and 27th in fast-break points per 100 possessions. Translation: Every point scored seemed to be a struggle. An athletic wing player who can shoot could help fill that void.
