NBA Draft Results 2012: Magic Select Andrew Nicholson With No. 19 Pick

New Orlando Magic General Manager Rob Hennigan has made his first big move, selecting St. Bonaventure's Andrew Nicholson with the No. 19 pick in the first round of the 2012 NBA Draft. In the lead-up to the Draft, many projected the Magic to look for help along the front line. Nicholson was an extremely productive player for the Bonnies last season, playing as a dominant force in the Atlantic 10. Nicholson is just under 6'10 and can play both inside and out.

Orlando will now have plenty of time before their second selection of the night. They have the 49th pick overall (No. 19 in the second round) and have another chance to add a player on a non-guaranteed contract.
