There are so many subtleties involved in the NBA Draft that, even when you get what you want, you may still suffer consequences. Doug dives deep into the Orlando Magic making Duke’s Paolo Banchero the first overall pick and explains why, despite getting they player they wanted, they could have done so much better. It may sound confusing but take a listen and you will understand why Doug is right on target.
