Orlando Magic Select Courtney Lee with the 22nd Pick in the 2008 NBA Draft

New, comments

As expected, the Orlando Magic selected Courtney Lee with the 22nd overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft. Lee, 6'05" from Western Kentucky, is expected to compete with Keith Bogans and J.J. Redick for minutes at shooting guard.

While I'm pleased with the pick -- he's topped my Magic draft board for the past week -- I'm a bit surprised the Magic didn't select Kansas power forward Darrell Arthur, a top-15 talent who was available.

The Magic have no other picks in this draft... yet. They've reportedly explored acquiring a high second-rounder. Stay tuned.
