NBA Mock Draft Pick #25 -- Ivan Rabb, Power Forward, California

SBNation’s Orlando Magic blog Orlando Pinstriped Post explains their pick:

After solidifying the wing with their first pick, the Magic look to bolster their front court some more with Rabb. With Aaron Gordon as the teams only power forward, adding Rabb will give the team a strong backup. Rabb, who many believed would be a lottery pick had he declared last year, has great size and an exlposive body that can help him around the basket and in transition. He'll need to continue to evolve as a shooter, knocking down just 38 percent of his jumpers last year at Cal, including 8-20 from three. He'd give the Magic a good complimentary piece in the half court who can score some with his back to the basket, and someone who can get out in transition and help them on the boards on both ends.
