5. Mo Bamba: Orlando Magic, Pick #6
Mo Bamba was a sensation in his only season at Texas. He averaged a double-double and was named to the Big XII’s All-Newcomer and All-Defensive teams. During the combine it Bamba was measured to break the record for wingspan and reportedly ran faster than Russell Westbrook during a separate private workout.
The size and athleticism combination was too much for Orlando to resist as they took him with the 6th pick. Despite the potential, Bamba has yet to find his groove. He’s averaging just 5.8 PPG and 4.9 RPG in just 15.5 minutes per game. At least he’s got that cool song.
