Wendell Carter’s defensive skills will be crucial for the Orlando Magic’s success. Despite being a strong offensive player, Carter’s ability to protect the rim and contest shots has been lacking. Improving his defense will not only benefit himself but also the team, as the Magic ranked 15th in team defense last season. Carter’s presence in the paint can elevate Orlando’s defense to a top-level, potentially securing them a playoff spot. Building a strong defensive team is essential for the Magic to become competitive in the postseason.
