Orlando Magic secure two top-eight picks in NBA Draft Lottery

The Orlando Magic have secured the fifth and eighth picks in the first round of the NBA Draft.

The draws were announced during Tuesday’s NBA Draft Lottery. The Detroit Pistons earned the No. 1 pick.  Orlando also received the No. 32 pick in the second round. 

The Magic went 21-51 last season and finished 14th in the Eastern Conference.  Head coach Steve Clifford announced earlier this month that he would be parting ways with the team.

"Obviously, we’ve repositioned our team," Orlando Magic President Jeff Weltman said at the time. "And so, there has to be alignment. There has to be alignment in everything you do in this league. And if there’s not alignment, it’ll undermine everything."

The next coach will be Orlando’s sixth since February 2015, following Jacque Vaughn, James Borrego, Scott Skiles, Frank Vogel and Clifford.

This is the first time in franchise history that the Magic will have two top-eight picks.  The team's No. 8 pick was made possible through a deal with the Chicago Bulls for All-Star Nikola Vucevic and reserve forward Al-Farouq Aminu.

The 2021 NBA Draft will be held on July 29.
