NBA Draft Combine 2014: Orlando Magic interview Julius Randle and others, according to report

Julius Randle - Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

Through two days at the Combine, the Magic have been busy interviewing players, a report says.

The Orlando Magic have met with a host of pro prospects at the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago, reports Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.

According to Robbins, the team's contingent--which group includes general manager Rob Hennigan; assistant general managers Matt Lloyd and Scott Perry; and coach Jacque Vaughn--has sat down for interviews with Australian combo guard Dante Exum, Kentucky power forward Julius Randle, Oklahoma State combo guard Marcus Smart, and Indiana power forward Noah Vonleh.

The team attempted to schedule an interview with Michigan two-guard Nik Stauskas, but were unable to do so owing to the sharpshooter's packed schedule. The Magic can still invite him to Orlando for a meeting later in the pre-Draft process.

As Robbins notes, Exum, Randle, Smart, and Vonleh are arguably the most talented prospects participating in the Combine. Joel Embiid, Jabari Parker, and Andrew Wiggins, three other collegiate stars projected to go high in the lottery, did not attend the annual event.

The Magic will learn Tuesday where they'll select in the 2014 NBA Draft. That night the league will conduct its Draft Lottery. Orlando has a 15.6 percent chance of winning the top pick, and will not select lower than sixth overall.
