The NBA Draft Combine continued in Chicago on Thursday as some players took part in drills and interviewed with some teams in attendance. Point guards Myck Kabongo and CJ McCollum are two players whom the Orlando Magic interviewed, reports Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. Robbins notes that Orlando has an unsettled point guard rotation, given that Beno Udrih will become a free agent in July and that E`Twaun Moore doesn't have a guaranteed contract.

McCollum averaged 23.9 points, five rebounds, 2.9 assists, and 1.4 steals in his senior season with the Lehigh Mountain Hawks, shooting 49.5 percent from the floor and 51.6 percent from three-point range. According to Chad Ford of ESPN Insider, McCollum measured 6-foot-3.25 in shoes.

For his part, Kabongo posted per-game averages of 14.6 points, five rebounds, 5.5 assists, and two steals on 41.8 percent shooting for the Texas Longhorns. At 6-foot-2.75, Kabongo measured slightly smaller than McCollum.

The Magic have their own first-round pick, which will be no lower than fourth overall. They also have the 51st overall selection via the Golden State Warriors. Even if the Magic don't plan to select either McCollum or Kabongo, getting to know them certainly doesn't hurt the team's rebuilding effort.

Colorado Buffaloes forward Andre Roberson also interviewed with the Magic, according to Robbins.
