Who is: Rodney Hood

The going belief among Magic fans right now — the belief that seems to make the most sense, at least — is that if the Magic go with a point guard with their first pick, their second lottery pick will be spent on a shooter. That is something the Magic are desperately lacking. There are not a ton of pure, knock-down shooters in this Draft but certainly some athletic wings with...
