Ranking Magic's Versatile Players

Cohen 8-Ball: The Rankings


OrlandoMagic.com’s Josh Cohen offers his rankings on a range of topics on the Magic and the rest of the NBA.

#5 Nikola Vucevic

Though Vucevic has been designated as the Magic’s center since his arrival in 2012, it’s not inconceivable to believe he can adapt to playing the power forward spot. Considering he isn’t much of a rim protector (yet) and is more consistent and valuable as a pick-and-pop specialist – despite making strides in pick-and-rolls and with his nifty footwork down low on the block -- Vucevic seems versatile enough to play alongside an enforcer inside. It would be outstanding if he can extend his range beyond the 3-point line to help stretch the floor.
