In a few weeks, the NBA Draft will take place from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Teams are already trying not to tip their hands while they work out players.

For the second time, the Orlando Magic have worked out Marcus Smart. Smart, who is considered a point guard in the National Basketball Association, is in Orlando, as the team auditions point guards.

They are expected to draft a point guard with the No. 4 or No. 12 pick. Besides Smart, the team will work out former Syracuse Orange freshman Tyler Ennis and Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ CajunsElfrid Payton.

The Magic are leaning towards Smart, a former Oklahoma State Cowboys shooting guard, or Danté Exum, an 18-year-old Austrailian point guard, who could become an NBA superstar. But according to many mock drafts, Exum is considered the fourth-best prospect.

Depending on how the draft goes, the Magic could draft a big man with the No. 4 pick, while saving the No. 12 pick for a point guard.

Many teams draft on potential when they have high draft picks. As with these draft picks, and previous picks, the players could fail to reach potential. That would put their team in a bind until they could get rid of that player.
