ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The Orlando Magic have selected Aaron Gordon with the No. 4 pick in the NBA draft.
Gordon, a 6-foot-9 forward from Arizona, was the Pac-12 freshman of the year last season and helped the Wildcats to a 33-5 record this past season. He also averaged 12.4 points and eight rebounds per game, to go along with eight double-doubles.
He joins a Magic front court that already includes 7-footer Nik Vucevic, and will have at a chance to contribute immediately.
It's the first of two picks the Magic have in the first round on Thursday night. They also have the No. 12 overall pick.
Earlier Thursday Orlando also picked up the 56th overall pick from Denver by trading swingman Arron Afflalo back to the Nuggets for point guard Evan Fournier.
