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
