Now that the Orlando Magic have their new head coach in Steve Clifford, and are beginning to assemble the rest of their coaching staff, it’s time to start focusing on who the organization is bringing in for pre-draft workouts.
Every organization handles the amount of information they release pertaining to draft workouts differently. Some teams publicly announce and promote the prospects they invite for workouts. Other organizations keep things closer to their vest.
The Magic have traditionally belonged to the latter group, at least in the recent past.
However, with Twitter and various other types of social media platforms, reports of scheduled prospect visits and workouts are easier to come across than they’ve ever been.
I figured I would streamline things and make it easier for everyone to keep track of who’s been invited to Orlando for a closer look during this pre-draft process.
