Mario Hezonja was one of those prospects who was “all bark, and no bite.” The swagger-filled Croatian chose the number 23 when he was selected by the Orlando Magic, in homage to the great Michael Jordan. But that was about the only thing that Hezonja and Jordan would ever have in common.
Despite averaging upwards of 22 minutes per game in his third season in the NBA, Hezonja average below double-digit scoring for the entirety of his NBA career. At the end of the 2017-2018 season the Magic let Hezonja walk, as they were no longer interested in his services. Drafting a swingman like Devin Booker or even Trey Lyles would’ve looked a lot smarter here.
