Magic draft players they feel can grow with the franchise

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) The Orlando Magic's recently hired president of basketball operations Jeff Weltman entered the first draft with his new team looking to add players who can grow with the rebuilding franchise.

With the No. 6 pick in Thursday night's NBA draft, the Magic selected Florida State forward Jonathan Isaac. The 6-foot-10, 210-pund forward is long and athletic with lots of potential, but he still has a lot of growing to do physically after spending just one season in college . Isaac is the first step in the building process for Orlando's revamped front office that also includes veteran general manager John Hammond.

"We're a growing team and he's a growing player," said Weltman, who has assumed control of a Magic team that has missed the playoffs five straight seasons. "I think tonight was really about adding the right kind of people and getting the chance to select a guy like a Jonathan Isaac who really has tremendous potential."
