The first of two top-eight picks is in for the Orlando Magic.

With the No. 5 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, the Magic selected Jalen Suggs of Gonzaga.

The 6-4 guard averaged 14.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.5 assists in his lone season at Gonzaga while guiding the team to the National Championship game. He shot 50.3 percent from the field, including 33.7 percent from three on 3.5 attempts per game.

Even with point guards Markelle Fultz and Cole Anthony on the roster, the Magic couldnโ€™t pass on taking Suggs when he fell into their lap, adding another floor general into the mix.

Evident heโ€™s a multi-sport athlete; elite body control, movement in space

-Was often able to get downhill and to the rim as a pick-and-roll initiator; remains to be seen if he will be able to do that against elite NBA athletes/smarter defenders (who go under screens/fight through with more success)

-Was solid enough as a shooter when defenders went under screens, has room to improve shot mechanics (I would like to see him release the basketball a little higher)
