With the 11th pick, the Magic select Fran Vazquez, a forward out of Spain. Vazquez is 22 years old, stand at 6'11" and weighs 230 pounds. I am not sure what the Magic are thinking with this pick. Vazquez might be a good pick for a lot of teams, but with Sean May, Rashad McCants, Antoine Wright, Joey Graham and Hakim Warrick stil on the board - I just don't think you can make this pick.

Tonight, at 7:00pm on ESPN, the 2005 NBA Draft will take place. The Magic have the 11th overall pick and the 38th and 44th picks in the second round. Magic fans will have a long night ahead to see who the team ends up with.
Dave Twardzik and Otis Smith have been named as co-GM's for the Orlando Magic. Both have been in the Magic front office for the last three years and are former NBA players, with Smtih playing for the Magic in the franchise's early years. It is not yet known whether the two will be making decisions together, or if they will be handling different responsibilities.
The Magic will not be retaining assistants Chris Jent, Paul Westhead and Clifford Ray for next season. While the first two will not be missed by most Magic fans, it comes as bit of a shock that Ray will not be with the Magic next year.
