#1 Victor Oladipo, Magic
Josh Cohen’s Analysis: Though a late bloomer and a tad undersized for spectators to instinctively expect him to become a perennial All-Star, Oladipo has the athleticism, determination and attitude to transform into a dependable pro.
Already learning the ropes as a playmaker and floor general at Summer League, Oladipo’s ceiling is high. While he may not be a “franchise savior” necessarily, his defensive prowess, at minimum, will help him alter the Magic’s approach on that side of the floor.
Also noticeable is his poise. Even when his shot isn’t falling, Oladipo never appears rattled. Especially for young players, this is imperative during the early development of their careers.
