Reunited in Orlando, Weltman and Hammond have used their first two lottery picks on Isaac and Bamba, essentially throwing a challenge flag for the duration of this rebuild to the concept that the best teams can only be effective with one nimble, rim-protecting center on the floor at any given time. “Everyone is looking for switchable defenders and versatile types of players, and we just believe that Mo and Jonathan have that component,” Weltman told Yahoo Sports. “They’re long, they can play either the four or the five. But they have really good feet, they’re very skilled, they’re both going to be very good shooters, and they have high IQs.”
For Isaac, this experience has also been about expanding his game and becoming more comfortable in a role as a go-to player, something he regularly avoided in an effort to blend. “It’s a process, obviously. It’s something new to me. It’s a process, man. I’m working on it every single day, and I think my offense is going to be really something special in the future,” Isaac told Yahoo Sports. “It just speaks to their belief in me and my ability to make shots and being a playmaker and making decisions out on the floor. Even when I wasn’t making shots, they were still calling plays for me to get the ball. I’ve got to continue to uphold that confidence in myself.”
On the night of the draft last month, Isaac didn’t see a threat with the Magic’s selection of Bamba, only a frontcourt partner who is already a tremendous help defender. Isaac’s response on Twitter was simply stated, “Scary!” “It’s hard not to see the potential and the damage we can do in this league together,” Bamba told Yahoo Sports. “Before I was even drafted, Orlando was one of those teams where I thought it was the best fit because of the front office and the current team. I just knew right away.”
