Magic pick Auburn's Chuma Okeke No. 16 overall in NBA draft

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Chuma Okeke conceded there were times over the past two months when he wondered whether a knee injury suffered during Auburn's surprising run to the Final Four had ruined his chances of being selected in the NBA draft.

An earlier than expected phone call from the Orlando Magic, who took him in the middle of the first round - No. 16 overall, quelled those fears on Thursday night.

"It's a blessing to be selected that early in the round," the 6-foot-8 forward said. "I had a lot of doubts, just because of the injury. I was scared people wouldn't take a chance on me."
