ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The Orlando Magic have selected Croatia's Dario Saric with the No. 12 pick in the NBA draft.
Saric was named 2013 FIBA Europe Young Player of the Year and averaged 16.7 points per game in helping Cibona VIP to a league title.
He also competed for Croatia's national team in the 2013 Eurobasket qualifying round.
It was the second of two picks the Magic made in the first round. The 6-foot-10 Saric joins Arizona's Aaron Gordon, who was selected fourth overall.
Orlando also has the 56th overall pick from Denver after trading swingman Arron Afflalo back to the Nuggets for point guard Evan Fournier earlier on Thursday.
