Ben Buchanan – Nikola Vucevic, the fringe All-Star put up BIG numbers this season. The 24 year old, standing at 7’0 averaged 19.3 ppg and 11 rpg. Vucevic will grow into a better player with the young Magic team, and if he progresses right, he could be one of the most dominant centers in the NBA.
Keith Rivas – Similar to the case with the Detroit Pistons, the Orlando Magic are in need of a miracle to be in contention in 2015. Lone behold, Nikola Vucevic is proving to be a world-class center, but development around him is crucial. If Victor Oladipo can’t get it together soon, don’t expect Vucevic to sit around and wait for things to come to him.
Sau A. – Nicola Vucevic- Vucevic statistical numbers are better than most other centers but he is getting them playing with an Orlando team with no chances of the playoffs.
Jr. Williams – I’ll be the first to admit that Vucevic flew under my radar for most of the 2014-15 season, however, his offensive numbers suggest that he’s one of the best scoring centers in the Eastern Conference. Whats more impressive is he continues to improve every season which could arguably put him in serious discussion as an 2016 NBA All-Star participant. Victor Oladipo may get most of the attention, but I believe Vucevic will be their most important player moving forward. He’s a double-double machine and his stock continues to rise.
