The Orlando Magic are the only team currently with two top-10 picks in this month’s NBA Draft, but that’s not the club’s only picks.
The Magic are also selected to pick in the second round with the No. 33 overall pick. Traditionally, Orlando hasn’t gotten all that much out of its second-rounders, but there are some notables.
Here’s a look back on three second-round picks for Orlando who made meaningful contributions for the franchise:
Michael Ansley, F
Selected: 37th overall in 1989
Years with Magic: 1989-91
Magic Stats: 7.2 points per game, 4.4 rebounds per game, 52% field goals, 72% free throws
Overview: Michael Ansley was the first player ever selected in the second round by the Orlando Magic and was a solid contributor off the bench over his two seasons. Ansley made just six starts for the Magic, but averaged better than 15 minutes per game and played in 144 of a possible 164 games for Orlando. Ansley shot 52% from the field as a member of the Magic, including 55% during the 1990-91 season.
Kyle O’Quinn, C/F
College: Norfolk State
Selected: 49th overall in 2012
Years with Magic: 2012-15
Magic Stats: 5.4 points per game, 4.4 rebounds per game, 50% field goals, 0.9 blocks per game
Overview: The only player ever drafted by the Magic from an HBCU, Kyle O’Quinn was largely a reserve, but typically gave Orlando good minutes in three seasons. A big body at 6-foot-9 and 250 pounds, O’Quinn was versatile enough to play either center or power forward. He appeared in 177 games for the Magic and made 41 starts.
Wesley Iwundu, F
College: Kansas State
Selected: 33rd overall in2017
Years with Magic: 2017-20
Magic Stats: 4.8 points per game, 2.5 rebounds, 42% field goals
Overview: Wesley Iwundu wasn’t particularly skilled offensively, but did a good job on the defensive end and rarely was outhustled. In three years with Orlando, Iwundu never averaged better than 5.8 points per game, but did improve as a shooter. Over his three seasons in Orlando, Iwundu appeared in 182 games and made 46 starts. He helped the Magic reach the playoffs in each of his final two seasons with the team, including a Southeast Division title during the 2018-19 campaign.
