With a devastating 20-62 record, it would be safe to say that the Orlando Magic are in need of some help for the upcoming 2013-14 season. That help may have arrived in this year's NBA Draft, in which the Magic hold the no. 2 pick. The biggest question stands, what is best for the team now? For starters, the Orlando Magic will definitely need to focus on their offense, mainly point guards and shooting guards. The biggest decision now for the Magic would be the choice between Ben McLemore and University of Michigan guard Trey Burke.
Another thing that can work out in Burke’s advantage is with current guard Beno Urdrih, who is an unrestricted free agent and may not return to Orlando. If Urdrih decides to leave Orlando, it could be Burke's golden ticket because it will leave Jameer Nelson as the only point guard. With Burke’s natural leadership on the court, the rookie would have no problem adjusting and replacing Urdrih.
“I’m definitely looking forward to whoever I go to, coming in and making an impact and being a leader for that team right away,” said Burke.
While the Magic are still considering who and what would be best for the team, it would be clear that Burke may be creeping in on McLemore’s chance at going to Orlando.
