Brandon Kravitz (Host of In The Zone) attended Jabari Smith's Pre-Draft workout for the Magic and was able to squeeze in a few questions during Jabari's media availability. We discuss if there's anything to Jabari Smith staying for an hour longer than most Pre-Draft workouts last as well as pros and cons of drafting him from our perspective.

Jake Chapman of the Magic Radio Network joined Brandon Kravitz and I on today's episode of In The Zone to discuss draft buzz when it comes to the Magic and the number one pick. Are all of these top prospects equally good? Does "fit" actually matter? Have they settled on a prospect or will the upcoming workouts be a deciding factor?

Jabari Smith has been favored to go #1 overall throughout this pre-draft process, but the odds have shifted from -200 (wager $200 to earn $100) to -600 (wager $600 to earn $100.) Vegas knows something. Does this mean the Magic are 100% drafting Jabari Smith or could this mean we could be looking at Orlando trading back? Brandon Kravitz and myself discussed this on today's episode of In The Zone.

Since the Magic have won 2 straight games in exciting fashion and have put their number 1 overall pick aspirations in peril, we decided to look "in-house" at some of the positives we've seen from current Magic prospects and why it shouldn't be overlooked. (We remain hopeful that the NBA Draft lottery will still be kind.)
