ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) If Orlando Magic draft pick Mario Hezonja had it his way he'd hop headfirst into the NBA fire.

The Croatian-born 20-year-old would skip straight from his just a just concluded full season with FC Barcelona in the Euroleague, to playing in every game during Orlando's upcoming summer league, to probably working out every day until training camp.

"When I finished with Croatia, I was thinking really about the NBA already. At that age, I was 17 turning 18," Hezonja said during his introductory news conference on Thursday.
