Sorry this is pretty OT. 

 

But I can not for the life of me get why people mock Smart to Orlando. Isnt he almost the same player as Dipo?

Not sure where you are looking. Everywhere I am looking at, it's Exum to Orlando.

ive read a couple of articles claiming the magic are high on him, and have brought him back for a second look. cant see them not going for exum if they keep the fourth pick though... maybe suggests that their considering trading down? i also read that the bucks are high on exum as well, but if they were to take him at #2, orlando would be crazy to pass on one of the other top three

They were apparently going to draft him last year had he stayed in. If they believe Smarts best position is PG in the NBA I don't think Oladipo necessarily changes things, although it wouldn't be a great shooting backcourt.

They are very similar players. Seems redundant to me.

If they think Smart can play NBA PG, they likely think they can co-exist. Having multiple backcourt players who are tough, defend, and can rebound isn't exactly a bad thing. They wouldn't be an amazing shooting pair but Oladipo isn't MKG bad at it or anything, they could reasonably expect him to improve to at least a serviceable level.

I've seen quite a few with Exum and then quite a few as well with Smart. If the Magic don't take Exum, they will take Smart.....They are really high on him and apparently deciding between the two players.

Every mock I've seen has Smart to LA.

Dipo plays the PG position right? 

 

Both remind me of undersized SG's who play PG.

Orlando doesn't want to pay big money to Nelson so that's why Smart and other PG's are being mocked to the Magic.
