2012 NBA Draft Grades, Magic

Andrew Sharp of SB Nation's NBA page has posted his draft grades for the 2012 NBA Draft, including his thoughts on the draft of the Orlando Magic. Spoiler alert: he wasn't the biggest fan.

And the Magic turned down an opportunity to rebuild with three first round picks and possibly more from Houston--God knows what other offers they turned down--instead picking up a player who provides security in case Ryan Anderson leaves, even though they're probably going to overpay Anderson regardless this summer, all in hopes that they can somehow squeeze out another few years of first-round exits with Dwight Howard. GRADE: F.

Well...at least it wasn't an F-.
