The upcoming draft for the Magic

Here is an article from bleacherreport.com correspondent Wil Bradley on what the Magic might be looking for in the 2010 draft coming up in a few weeks.

Some excerpts:

Orlando Magic general manager Otis Smith believes his team needs only an “eighth of an inch” improvement to be an NBA champion.

He told fans finding ball handlers, and adding one or two pieces to the “puzzle” would be the priority.

Orlando's lack of cap space, and multiple high-dollar contracts limit what can be accomplished via free-agency. The Magic do have a trade-exception and mid-level exception, giving them some slack.

The draft will provide the only other means of improving the team. Again Smith says he's looking for the best player available. At the 29th position, most draft analysts predict quite a few guards available.

    Hopefully the Magic can find someone serviceable who can contribute next season, even though they are drafting at 29 and 59. It's kind of a crapshoot when a team is drafting so low; we'll see what Otis comes up with.
