The Magic have announced the signing of first-round pick Mo Bamba.
Bamba will be practicing with Orlando's Summer League group today. He's got an incredible set of physical tools and has the looks of a fantasy monster down the line, though his playing time in year one is currently up for debate. It's a pretty good bet that Bamba plays ahead of Bismack Biyombo, though Steve Clifford is pretty famous for favoring veterans. A Nikola Vucevic trade would be the best thing here as Bamba is only looking at backup minutes otherwise. With Orlando going nowhere fast, it'd be wise of them to clear the runway to get a long look at a Bamba-Jonathan Isaac combo. That pair has truly elite defensive potential.
