The Orlando Magic have selected Kyle O'Quinn with the 49th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. O'Quinn, a 6-foot-10 big man, averaged 15.9 points, 10.3 rebounds, and 2.7 blocks in his senior season for Norfolk State. The Flushing, New York native is a two-time winner of the MEAC's Defensive Player of the Year award, and in 2012 earned the Lou Henson Award as the best mid-major player in the nation.

O'Quinn made a name for himself in the NCAA Tournament against Missouri, in which he scored 26 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in Norfolk State's upset victory.

The 2012 Draft is Orlando's first under new General Manager Rob Hennigan, who took the job just over a week before it started. Hennigan replaces Otis Smith. Hennigan selected St. Bonaventure power forward Andrew Nicholson, another senior big man with NCAA Tournament experience, with the 19th overall pick in the first round.
