Smart reportedly worked out for the Magic on Memorial Day alongside a host of other 2014 NBA Draft prospects, including Duke swingman Rodney Hood and Arizona State shooting guard Nick Johnson.

In his sophomore season as a Cowboy, Smart averaged 18 points, 5.9 rebounds, 4.8 assists, and 2.9 steals per game on 42.2 percent shooting from the floor. Most analysts and fans expected him to declare for the 2013 NBA Draft, but Smart made the surprising choice to return to Stillwater for another year of seasoning.

Orlando owns the fourth and 12th overall picks in the 2014 NBA Draft, which event is scheduled for Thursday, June 26th. Taking Smart fourth overall might be a reach, and he doesn't figure to be available at the no. 12 slot. Still, it behooves Orlando to gather as much intel on potential Draft prospects as it can.
