The Magic Will Pick Second in the 2013 Draft!
Pat Williams was on stage and had “Peace Man” by his side, the good luck charm presented to him by Magic CEO Alex Martins’ daughter. As it came down to the last three lottery announcements, the Magic, Cleveland Cavaliers and Washington Wizards waited through a painful commercial break before the final announcement.
The Wizards at three. The Magic at two. The Cavs at one.
While Pat Williams lucky streak didn’t continue tonight, the Magic dropped just one spot and will have the second overall pick in the draft on June 27th. While it’s nice to win, the second overall pick provides the franchise with the most flexibility moving forward. And keeps them from selecting a 206 pound seven foot man. Besides, wouldn’t you rather save your lottery luck for Andrew Wiggins?
