2010 NBA Draft, 29th Pick: Magic Take Daniel Orton

And we have a new record: Kentucky has set a record for most players drafted in the first round of a single draft, with five now. Orton is a complete enigma after averaging three points and three rebounds in his one and done season at Kentucky.

Still, he's got an NBA frame and he's young, so the Magic apparently are willing to take a chance that he can develop. The more interesting questions is whether this signals a willingness on the part of the Magic to move highly-paid backup center Marcin Gortat.
