Watch: Andrew Nicholson Highlights and Interview

Magic rookie Andrew Nicholson has scored 14 points in back-to-back exhibition games. Get to know the St. Bonaventure product more with this NBA.com video.

Orlando Magic rookie Andrew Nicholson is beginning to make a name for himself as the NBA preseason continues. Through three preseason games, the lanky power forward is averaging 11 points and five boards, showing the sort of offensive polish which enticed the Magic into selecting him with the 19th overall Draft pick in 2012.

NBA.com posted a video of Nicholson which features brief interview clips of the St. Bonaventure product, as well as highlights from Nicholson's performance in the Orlando Pro Summer League, wherein he posted team-best per-game averages of 12.6 points and 6.8 rebounds.

"He's a guy that you, when you're at the Y, you pick him up on your team," Magic coach Jacque Vaughn says. "He doesn't look glamorous, he might not run like Usain Bolt, but he's efficient [and] his game is at a great pace."

Orlando is banking on Nicholson to be a long-term contributor as it rebuilds in the post-Dwight Howard era. It's unclear how immediately Vaughn and his staff will ask Nicholson to, given the team's depth up front, but the 22-year-old's offensive skill is already beginning to show.
