Magic officials already have scouted the likes of Kentucky Wildcats center Nerlens Noel, Kansas Jayhawks shooting guard Ben McLemore and Michigan Wolverines point guard Trey Burke for months and months. Until now, however, the Magic and other NBA teams haven’t been permitted to sit down and speak with any draft prospect. General manager Rob Hennigan and assistant general managers Scott Perry and Matt Lloyd will conduct the Magic’s player interviews, which were expected to begin Wednesday night and likely will include Noel, McLemore and Burke. Each team may interview a maximum of 18 players, and each session may last a maximum of 30 minutes.
