Here’s who Magic interviewed at combine, hosted or will host for workouts


The Orlando Magic, owners of the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft, took a step forward in their pre-draft evaluations during the mid-May NBA draft combine in Chicago.

Now the Magic, who also have the Nos. 32 and 35 picks in the second round, are hosting prospects for workouts in Orlando ahead of the June 23 draft.

The month-long process gives Orlando its most comprehensive look at the prospects after being allowed to scout but not contact the players during the season.

Here’s a list of the prospects the Magic either interviewed at the combine, hosted for pre-draft workouts or are expected to host for workouts.

The list of players has been gathered from interviews during the draft combine, the Orlando Sentinel’s reporting and various media reports. This list — which isn’t complete — will be updated as more intel is gathered:

The league decides which team speaks to the players. Just because a team didn’t interview a prospect during the combine doesn’t mean they’re not interested or won’t pick the player.
