Unfortunately, the luck of the Magic wasn't on our side last night at the NBA draft lottery selections. The Magic will get the #6 pick for the 2nd year in a row. With 88 balls out of 1000 in the hopper, our chances to land the #1 pick weren't great, but we were still hopeful the basketball Gods would be on our side. Well, no luck. 

Granted, the Magic can certainly land an excellent player at the #6 spot, like Michael Porter Jr. or Mohamed Bamba. Keep in mind, the Magic drafted Jonathan Isaac last year with the #6 pick out of FLorida State.

The NBA draft will take place on June 21st. Here's the top 10 order of picks for the upcoming draft from NBA.com:

1. Phoenix Suns

2. Sacramento Kings

3. Atlanta Hawks

4. Memphis Grizzlies

5. Dallas Mavericks

6. Orlando Magic

7. Chicago Bulls

8. Cleveland Cavaliers

9. NY Knicks

10. Philadelphia 76ers
