Neeeeeed a top 5 pick, any of Chet, Banchero, Hardy, Duren or Jabari would complete our roster. Then winning starts to become a priority from next year. My personal fave and best fit would be Hardy.

I am pinning my hopes on this being the draft where we get our alpha scorer. If that doesn't give us a chance at a great future, nothing will.

As said up there, gears can shift next year when that happens.

And then getting extra picks over the next couple of years should just be cream. Fingers crossed hey?!

Nobody is focusing on the draft. But the draft can be a part of the discussion. Some people (me) love the draft. If we were in the playoff hunt I'd have probably still made this thread.

I know I made that joke in the other thread that if the Magic draft Chet he'd be injured all the time but I actually think he might be my top prospect. 

Fluid, incredibly long 7 footer who is an elite rim protector, has a nice feel for the game, can pass, dribble and shoot. He's under weight, and that's a problem... But he still might be the best prospect.

I was actually surprised it took so long! :P

Also, you can have a eye on the draft even if you're a contender and you'll pick around 25.

Jabari Smith is the real deal. I think he could be the Evan Mobley of this class.

And his shot looks much better already. I also think he is going to be one of the best players in the draft.
