The Orlando Magic continue to research potential NBA Draft prospects in advance of Thursday's event, and as Andy Katz of ESPN reports, they continued that research today by hosting Indiana power forward Cody Zeller for a workout. Further, Katz says Orlando "hasn't ruled him out at no. 2." The Magic are apparently "casting a wide net" in their pre-Draft preparation.
Zeller, who played center at the NCAA level, averaged 16.1 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.2 steals, and 1.2 blocks in his two seasons as a Hoosier. He earned Consensus All-American Second Team honors for his performance as a sophomore.
Katz's report comes mere hours after Chad Ford, an ESPN colleague, said Orlando would likely select Kentucky center Nerlens Noel if he's still available when the Magic pick. The Cleveland Cavaliers own the first pick and may use it on Noel.
