Dwight Howard and Anderson Varejao, Magic draft picks in 2004

Power forward/center Anderson Varejao (left) showed up for his introduction in Orlando after the Magic selected him with the first pick in the second round -- No. 30 overall -- on the same night as they took power forward/center Dwight Howard No. 1 overall. The Magic later traded the draft rights to Varejao along with power forward Drew Gooden to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for power forward Tony Battie.RICARDO RAMIREZ BUXEDA, ORLANDO SENTINEL
