I agree, Oladipo. I also wouldn't be shocked to see Olynyk in the mix. He's going to get a crap load of minutes.

I'm going with a more unlikely pick, Ben McLemore

Cody Zellar looked good in summer camp. Brendan Haywood broke his foot or something, so they'll be plenty of minutes for him on that Bobcats team.

I agree with Jeff. Oladipo seemed like an aggressive, go-get-it type in summer league. Olynyk has a good chance if they make him one of the focal points on offense, but after seeing the game against the Raps it seems more likely that Jeff Green, Brandon Bass, Avery Bradley and Jordan Crawford are going to get more reps than Kelly. Orlando on the other hand has Oladipo and... Jameer Nelson.

Those are my 2 picks as well. Just not sure where Oladipo will stand when it comes to minutes... hopefully he starts with Nelson, Harris, Davis and Vucevic.

Olynyk has game. Smart player.

Bennett or Mclemore.

Bennett won't have the pressure to preform, so he'll play within himself. And when he plays within himself he's great.

Ben on the other hand will get good minutes and be a primary scorer. Scorers get awarded.

If Oladipo doesn't win it I'll be shocked. He may start out with low minutes so ORL can showcase Nelson and Afflalo, but in the early new year I expect him to be starting whether they trade those 2 are not and he should take off. He's got all of the tools to become a top 10 player in the league.

Victor Oladipo had 18 points on 7-for-13 shooting, eight rebounds and three assists in Friday's preseason game for the Orlando Magic against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"He's going to be great," Kyrie Irving said of Oladipo. "He's going to be great in this league. ... His potential is out of the roof."

Oladipo was the second overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.

Forgot they had Afflalo there too... guess he won't be starting.

ORL has done one hell of a job rebuilding though (and quickly). They have a lot of nice young pieces there.

Yeah there's no pressure when you're a first overall pick.

You can guarantee there will be pressure on him if he's not performing after the first couple months. Don't think he won't perform, but no doubt if he doesn't he'll hear it. Cavs used their first pick on him.
