With the 16th pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, your Orlando Magic select Chuma Okeke from Auburn University. The 6'-8" 230 lb. forward has a 7-goot wing span and averaged 15-points and 7-rebounds in the NCAA tourney, according to ESPN.

However, the Magic will have to be patient because Okeke went down in the game against NC which ended his season. His knee injury will likely keep him out a good part of his rookie season.

However, the Magic are optimistic about his recovery and love his toughness and versatility.
