The Orlando Magic will bring Victor Oladipo off the bench Saturday against the Sacramento Kings, ending a stretch of 16 consecutive stars for the second overall pick in June's NBA Draft.

Saturday, Orlando will start Jameer Nelson and Arron Afflalo at the guards; Tobias Harris and Glen Davis at the forwards; and Nikola Vučević at center.

In his starts, Oladipo averaged 14.4 points, five rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game on 40.6 percent shooting. He is coming off a miserable performance against the Utah Jazz on Wednesday, a game in which he shot 1-of-12 from the floor for three points in 36 minutes.

As a reserve, the combo guard has averaged 11.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 3.3 assists in 25.5 minutes, shooting 38.9 percent from the floor.
