Default Rookie Oladipo in PG mix with Nelson

Oladipo's aggressiveness was undermined by turnovers. The Magic will give him chances in Year 2 of this rebuild to position himself to succeed Nelson while they monitor Oklahoma State point guard Marcus Smart for the next draft.

Oladipo is everything that Jameer is not at this stage: Young, lightning fast, defensively adept and about five inches taller.

On the flip side, Jameer has everything that Oladipo lacks: Vast experience, teammates' trust and a reputation as a scorer.

Oladipo finished second in the Orlando summer league in scoring at 19.0 points per game in four outings, but shot just 37.5 percent. He filled the stat line, averaging 5.0 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 3.0 steals.
