The Orlando Magic selected Indiana guard Victor Oladipo in the first round of the 2013 NBA Draft. Oladipo sits at 6’4” and weighs 231 pounds. Oladipo will wear the No. 5 jersey and Magic fans will be able to purchase an Oladipo Magic jersey as soon as tomorrow (Friday).
During a press conference Thursday night Oladipo said, “I am really looking forward to getting down there. I am at a loss for words.”
Oladipo averaged 10.7, ppg, 5.2 rpg and 1.55 stlpg in the three years he played with Indiana. He started all 36 games this past season and averaged 13.6 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 2.17 stlpg and 2.1 apg. Just like any other rookie Oladipo will have to work hard to get on the same page as the rest of the Magic roster.
Oladipo is know for his humble and hard working attitude. “When they called my name I was like ‘Wow I can’t believe they called my name.'”
The Orlando Magic will hold a press conference tomorrow at 3:30 pm with general manger Rob Hennigan, head coach Jacque Vaughn and Victor Oladipo.
