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

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) The Orlando Magic have selected Mohamed Bamba, the 7-footer from Texas, with the sixth overall pick in Thursday night's NBA draft.

The 20-year-old center from New York City averaged 12.9 points, 10.5 rebounds and 3.7 blocks as a freshman for the Longhorns. He was second in the nation in blocked shots among Division 1 teams, and his 15 double-doubles led the Big 12 conference.

Bamba's 7-foot-10 wingspan is reportedly the largest ever measured at the NBA draft combine. The Magic exercised the sixth overall pick for the second year in a row, having drafted 6-10 Jonathan Isaac a year ago.
