What’s the buzz on Twitter?

FYI: The Magic reportedly worked out both Anthony Black and Jett Howard during the pre-draft process so… – 9:19 PM

2023 NBA Draft: Magic select Anthony Black with No. 6 overall pick

Anthony Black provides the Magic a big, selfless passer who can run P&R, or move without the ball too. The main concern is his jump shot. But the Magic have so many sources of offense they can move Black around the floor. pic.twitter.com/c0Nu1GC7Eq8:48 PM

Magic select Dallas-area native Anthony Black with No. 6 overall pick in NBA draft.
Not too bad, @LewisvilleHS and @DuncanvilleBB. Not too bad. dallasnews.com/high-school-sp…8:47 PM

Anthony Black felt like the right pick for Orlando as a higher-upside PG prospect over the current Magic ball-handlers, but also as an interchangeable G/F. With Black, Franz, Paolo, that’s three guys over 6-6 who can handle. – 8:46 PM

Anthony Black got the Bruno Mars look going. 6th overall pick to Orlando Magic. #NBADraft2023 pic.twitter.com/flrh0OFyEu8:45 PM

Talking about Anthony Black’s fit with the Orlando Magic now! Why he’s one of @TheBoxAndOne_’s favorite prospects this season.

Dan Savage @Dan_Savage
The @OrlandoMagic continue to add players with high IQ, defensive versatility, unselfishness, and athleticism to their young core as they select Anthony Black with the No. 6 overall pick. – 8:44 PM
Ryan McDonald @ryanwmcdonald
This is gonna be awkward if the Jazz pull a trade, but I just never saw it with Anthony Black – 8:44 PM

Anthony Black goes No. 6 to Orlando Magic in 2023 NBA draft orlandosentinel.com/2023/06/22/nba…8:44 PM
Evan Sidery @esidery
With the Magic drafting Anthony Black at No. 6, have to wonder what happens next for their guard rotation.
Not enough adequate minutes to go around between Black, Markelle Fultz, Jalen Suggs, and Cole Anthony.
Orlando could be very active in trade talks soon. – 8:43 PM
Jeff Goodman @GoodmanHoops
Orlando just stockpiling point guards: Just don’t know if Anthony Black was the right call here at 6. – 8:43 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
With Anthony Black reportedly going to the Magic at 6, here are some of the names still available with the Wizards two picks away:
Cam Whitmore, Taylor Hendricks, Jarace Walker, Cason Wallace, Gradey Dick – 8:43 PM
Jake Fischer @JakeLFischer
Anthony Black will be Orlando’s selection at No. 6, according to a league source. – 8:42 PM

Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Looked at all the mocks I usually use:
– Coulibaly draft range is 8-12, new mock avg of 11th (moved up)
Amen Thompson mock avg 4th
Ausar Thompson mock avg 5th
Anthony Black mock avg 6th
Jarace Walker draft range 5-7 – 6:10 PM
Henry Abbott @TrueHoop
This high-octane podcast episode about Marcus Smart and the fact that if he shot better from 3 he’d still be a Celtic … and what does that imply for iffy shooters in tonight’s draft like Anthony Black, Amen Thompson, and Bilal Coulibaly? link.chtbl.com/TrueHoopSocial14:40 PM
Mike Curtis @MikeACurtis2
I wonder if Washington would still take Anthony Black at 8 if he’s available, to pair him with Jordan Poole. – 3:14 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Some Jazz draft thoughts today:
– This isn’t a report, no one from the Jazz have told me this. But the scuttlebutt from league folks about the Jazz is that they’re most interested in Jarace Walker or Anthony Black. On the other hand, they’re said to be low on Cam Whitmore. – 12:45 PM
Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Anthony Black is one of the top local NBA prospects who will be taken high in Thursday’s draft. Will he be there when the Mavericks draft 10th?

Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
The subsequent question now is: What are the Wizards’ intentions with the futures of their point guards? They now have Tyus Jones, Monté Morris and Delon Wright all under contract for 2023-24, plus Chris Paul (for now, anyway). And w/the 8th pick, they might select Anthony Black. – 12:29 AM
Kelly Iko @KellyIko
Having landed their lead ball handler in Tyus Jones, I wonder what direction the Wizards go now at 8. Been seeing a whole lot of Anthony Black mocked there over the last few days — maybe Taylor Hendricks is in play? – 12:11 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Soooooo … does the Wizards getting Tyus Jones in the new Kristaps deal indicate a concern that Anthony Black wasn’t gonna be there at 8? If not, does this change their approach if he is there at 8? – 12:05 AM

More on this storyline

Black’s camp initially showed resistance to working out for the Magic, sources said, because of Orlando’s perceived logjam in the backcourt with a trio of first-round guards in Markelle Fultz, Jalen Suggs and Cole Anthony. Anthony will become extension eligible this summer and is considered to have a great relationship with the Magic front office, but Orlando has left various personnel with the impression that drafting a guard like Ausar or Black would lead the Magic to exploring trade opportunities for one of Suggs or Anthony. -via Yahoo!
