The Orlando Magic are progressing well in their rebuilding mission. They have selected incredibly talented players in recent drafts, and their tanking strategy has helped them grab high lottery picks.

Just like other rebuilding teams, they aren't ready to make a push for the NBA play-in tournament. The Magic are better off tanking another season and getting a high draft pick for next summer while developing their young guns.

Unlike Houston, Detroit and Oklahoma City, the Magic are not set on their core. They are certainly building around Cole Anthony, Jalen Suggs and recently drafted Paolo Banchero while the rest of the roster is flexible.

Mo Bamba is rumored to be on the trade block, and the Wagner brothers can be used as assets as well. There is no guarantee that Chuma Okeke, Wendell Carter Jr., Markelle Fultz and R.J. Hampton will be part of the team when they eventually assemble a playoff-ready roster.

The Magic are one of the most formidable teams in the Summer League because of their young talent. They will display their recent draft selections in Vegas. They did not take part in the California Classic or Salt Lake City Summer League and will now directly play in the NBA 2K23 Summer League in Nevada.

The Orlando Magic's summer league roster will be headlined by their 2020 and 2022 draft picks and surprisingly not feature their 2021 selections. From their 2020 draft class, R.J. Hampton and Daniel Otutu will be on the roster. Hampton and Oturu were selected 24th and 33rd overall, respectively. Cole Anthony will unfortunately not lace up in Vegas.

From last month's draft class, they will display their coveted first overall pick Paolo Banchero from Duke along with Caleb Houstan, selected 32nd from Michigan.

Their 2021 picks, Jalen Suggs and Franz Wagner, will not participate.

Additionally, the Magic's roster has several NBA G League players. Jaire Grayer, Justin James, Daniel Oturu, Admiral Schofield and Jared Wilson-Frame are all from the developmental league.

James plays for Cleveland Charge (Cavaliers), Oturu for the Windy City Bulls (Bulls) and Wilson-Frame for the Salt Lake City Stars (Jazz). Grayer and Schofield (two-way) play for the Lakeland Magic (Magic).
