The Orlando Magic won the 2022 NBA Draft lottery Tuesday night, securing the No. 1 pick in the draft for the first time since they selected Dwight Howard in 2004. This time around, the Magic have a unique opportunity they must take advantage of: the chance to reunite good friends and former high school teammates Chet Holmgren and Jalen Suggs.

Suggs and Holmgren played together at Minnehaha Academy, and in AAU for Grassroots Sizzle. They have been good friends since middle school. Suggs graduated high school in 2020 and took his talents to Gonzaga as a five-star, all-everything point guard. A year later, Holmgren followed his path to Spokane as the consensus top player in the 2021 recruiting class. Suggs turned pro after his freshman season, so they didn't suit up together in college, but both left their mark on Gonzaga.

Suggs led the Bulldogs to the national title game while averaging 14.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game. He also hit one of the great buzzer-beaters in college basketball history in the Final Four and earned second-team All-American honors as well. Holmgren similarly was named second-team All-American as a freshman, as the 7-footer averaged 14.1 points, 9.9 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 3.7 blocks per game.

Suggs was Orlando's first-round pick in 2021, as the franchise selected him at No. 5. Now they have a chance to grab Holmgren, who is among a group of six players generally agreed upon as the best in this draft class. But Holmgren, Auburn's Jabari Smith and Duke's Paolo Banchero are the only three with a real shot at being the top pick, and Holmgren is the consensus best player.
