A collection of the best tweets about the Magic’s new addition

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Second Round-Auburn vs Kansas Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Heading into the NBA Draft, most of Magic Twitter probably didn’t have Chuma Okeke on their radar.

With the Auburn forward having suffered a torn ACL during the NCAA Tournament, he was slated as either a late first round pick or early second round pick in just about every mock draft. So the Magic taking Okeke with the 16th pick led to a wide range of opinion on Twitter.

Some believed that Okeke was the steal of the draft. Others said the pick was a reach.

Some were excited about Okeke’s potential once healthy. Others were disappointed the Magic added another forward and rehab project to what is an already crowded frontcourt and trainer’s room.

We collected some of the best Okeke tweets we came across and delivered them here for you, just as we did last year when the Magic drafted Mo Bamba. Now that a few days have passed and you have been able to learn more about Okeke, are you feeling better or worse about the pick?
