Cohen 8-Ball: Assessing Magic's Draft Direction
Cohen’s Analysis: Nikola Vucevic has been one of the league’s most pleasant surprises and has proven to be an elite rebounder with a potential to become a privileged scorer because of his all-encompassing offensive arsenal. “Vooch,” however, must improve on his overall aggressiveness and defense in the paint to evolve into a top five center in the NBA. Therefore, the Magic could theoretically focus in the draft on a “big” to partner with Nik that is more defensive-oriented and has a propensity to block shots and intimidate opponents inside. Think of a “Twin Towers” concept like Duncan and Robinson or Sampson and Olajuwon.
