Important Players To Watch
The Orlando Magic own the number one overall pick in the draft this year. Many experts have the Magic taking Jabari Smith or Chet Holmgren with the pick. Others have suggested Paolo Banchero moves up the draft board. On Tap Sports Net’s own weighed in on one of the top NBA Draft prospects:
“Chet Holmgren is one of the biggest question marks, in my opinion. He’s a Kristaps-esque player but thinner… His body type is what scares me, he’s skin and bones. But KD is skinny too, so.”Colby Marchio on the Gonzaga center Chet Holmgren.
