Magic head coach Frank Vogel said he intends to teach Nikola Vucevic the proper angles on defense and the "verticality rule."
"So I don't want to come in and say that Vooch is going to become Roy Hibbert," Vogel said. "But I think Vooch can be a lot better than he's been. And I think some of those lessons we learned with Roy will apply to Vooch and how we use him and what he's being asked to do." The Magic brought in Bismack Biyombo and Serge Ibaka to provide some rim protection, but Vucevic's outlook will significantly improve if he makes strides on the defensive end because he's already their top option on offense right now. We'd like him better if Biyombo wasn't around and he could be a trade candidate, but grabbing him in the early middle rounds still makes sense. Sep 22 - 1:16 PM
