No. 6: Orlando Magic select Bilal Coulibaly

Original pick: Anthony Black

The Orlando Magic had arguably the worst draft of any team last summer. First, they selected Arkansas guard Anthony Black at No. 6, followed by Michigan forward Jett Howard at No. 11. They'd certainly love the opportunity to re-do this draft and take someone like Bilal Coulibaly instead, who went just one pick later to the Washington Wizards at No. 7.

Coulibaly's rookie season numbers didn't jump out. He averaged 8.4 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 1.7 assists. Still, his tantalizing potential puts him in the second tier of prospects in this draft class who could wind up with All-Star appearances (Victor Wembanyama gets his own "Alien" tier).

At 6-foot-8, Coulibaly's calling card is his two-way upside. He could wind up being the best defender in the draft class outside of Wembanyama. Additionally, he's already an average three-point shooter at 34.6 percent; a relatively raw prospect at 19 years old, Coulibaly should only continue to improve in that aspect.

Regardless of positional fit, Coulibaly's upside is too intriguing to pass up here at pick No. 6. His length and switchability across multiple positions would also significantly contribute to the Magic's team identity. They would be set at positions two through four for the next decade between Franz Wagner, Paolo Banchero, and now Coulibaly.
