- Tobias Harris is one of the NBA’s top 50 most valuable assets (listed at No. 42) according to Bill Simmons of Grantland: “Harris has been a revelation: 6-foot-8, plays inside and outside, shoots 3s, rebounds.”
- If the Orlando Magic win the 2013 draft lottery, can they afford to take the risk by selecting Nerlens Noel (who’s recovering from a torn ACL) with the top overall pick?
- John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com: “The combination of Orlando’s loss Wednesday in Miami and Charlotte’s home win meant that the Magic will have the best odds at getting the top overall pick in the June 27 NBA Draft. The draft order will be determined on May 21 in the NBA’s lottery system. The Magic will have 250 combinations in the draft lottery or a 25 percent shot at getting the top overall selection. They have a 21.5 percent shot at the No. 2 pick, a 17.8 percent shot at No. 3 and 35.7 percent odds at the No. 4 slot. Because they have the NBA’s worst record, the Magic can fall no lower than the fourth pick in the draft.”
- The Magic finish the regular season by ranking dead last in USA TODAY’s power rankings.
Hopefully next year the description of Harris changes a little.
