Source: Magic Wouldn't Rule Out Drafting Nerlens Noel

Rob Hennigan has been risk-averse when it comes to acquiring players with injury histories, but according to a source with direct knowledge, Hennigan wouldn’t be afraid to select Nerlens Noel with the Orlando Magic’s lottery pick.

The Magic finished with the NBA’s worst record (20-62) and are guaranteed one of the top four picks -- with a 25 percent chance of receiving the No. 1 pick.

Noel is still recovering from a torn ACL in his left knee suffered on Feb. 12.

Noel fractured the growth plate in his left knee as a sophomore in high school and missed the remainder of the season.
