01:15 PM ET 07.25 | The Orlando Magic decided to draft a versatile guard with their second overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft in Victor Oladipo. During Summer League, Oladipo got to play as a point guard as part of an experiment on the team's part, in order to see if he has potential to grow as the primary playmaker of a team. Oladipo showed some potential and his ball-handling ability was solid enough to run the point, but he was often sloppy with his passing and averaged a lot of turnovers. The Magic will still consider playing Oladipo at the point, although lead assistant coach James Borrego is not certain of what position the young guard will play.
