Magic had three picks; ends up with one player in draft
ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Orlando Magic traded Reyshawn Terry,
the No. 44 pick in the NBA draft, to the Dallas Mavericks for
60th-pick Milovan Rakovic and cash.
The Magic had three picks, all in the second round, but ended up
with only one player -- the last chosen overall.
They lost their first-round pick in the Detroit Pistons trade
last year that brought in Darko Milicic and Carlos Arroyo and sent
the No. 54 pick on Thursday before the draft to Houston. The Magic
had to give their No. 39 pick to Miami earlier this month to hire
former Heat coach and consultant Stan Van Gundy.
Rakovic, a 6-foot-10 forward from Serbia, last year averaged
12.9 points and 4.6 rebounds for KK Mega Ishrana.
Terry played all four years at North Carolina, averaging 14
points his junior year and just under 10 points a game this season.
He shot 42 percent from the 3-point line, third-best in school
