Orlando Magic fans saw a frontline that eventually featured two second-year players and a rookie. Those men would be Nikola Vucevic, Tobias Harris and the defensive stopper, ace, Moe Harkless. The Magic have a trio, plus Andrew Nicholson and Kyle O’Quinn. The chance to add another frontcourt banger could be too much to pass up.

Cody Zeller has drawn rave reviews since showing a 34-inch vertical leap in draft measurements. His length, coordination, and overall skill have many thinking “American Pau Gasol.” Zeller’s potential and ceiling may not really be that of a perennial All-Star, but those types are rare, never mind a weak draft.
