2012 NBA Draft Results: Andrew Nicholson Selected By Magic With No. 19 Pick

With the No. 19 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Orlando Magic selected Andrew Nicholson from St. Bonaventure.

Nicholson is a power forward with good offensive skills and good length despite a 6'9 frame. Like every power forward in recent Magic history, he can shoot. As Ryan Anderson is a restricted free agent, Nicholson could be a back-up plan or an understudy. There's also a lack of clarity on what new Orlando GM Rob Hennigan will do about the whole Dwight Howard clusterfluff. Nicholson certainly doesn't play center, but could be valued well by other teams in any sort of swap to build up the Magic's ranks.

Nicholson is the first foreign-born player drafted this year. He is from Canada.
