Magic draft Florida State's Isaac with sixth overall pick

Layoffs Begin Next Month at the Site of Trump's Famed Carrier Deal
From the get-go, President Trump's so-called "Carrier deal" has not lived up to its expectations. In exchange for keeping the factory open, Carrier is getting $7 million in tax incentives.

Isaac, considered a player with the highest ceiling in the draft, averaged 12 points and 7.8 rebounds per game while shooting 50.8 percent from the field and 35 percent from 3-point range in a rotation of sometimes 12 players last season at Florida State. Isaac has also drawn comparisons to New Orleans power forward Anthony Davis. Some pundits thought Orlando would go with shooting guard Malik Monk of Kentucky, but Isaac brings many attributes that can make him a star in the league.

Isaac, who is a good perimeter shooter and can post up, will likely back up Aaron Gordon at power forward this season. "Maybe I would have loved to be drafted by a NY team so I could come home, but it is kind of home for me".
