Orlando drafts 7-footer Bamba out of Texas with sixth pick

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) The NBA draft featured several big men on Thursday night, and the biggest was Mohamed Bamba.

The Orlando Magic drafted the 20-year-old center with the sixth overall pick. The young man from New York City who played one year at Texas joins a team that went 25-57 last season and has averaged only 26 wins over six straight losing seasons.

"I'm not going to sit here and say things are going to change overnight," Bamba said. "It's going to take more than one person and I actually believe that with the players around me, we have the right pieces to make the organization successful."
