Orlando Pinstriped Post Community Big Board 2014: Picking a No. 2

New, comments

In a surprising turn of events, Joel Embiid took the top spot of the big board. Now we must vote for a No. 2.

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Orlando Pinstriped Post community selected former Kansas big man Joel Embiid as the top guy on the big board, despite his positional overlap with incumbent Orlando Magic center Nikola Vucevic. Embiid averaged 11.2 points, 8.1 rebounds and 2.6 blocks in 23 minutes a night in his only year at Kansas.

He was the most recent feature in my draft profile series over at SB Nation's NBA page. In that profile, I write that Embiid is clearly the top prospect if he's 100 percent healthy. But that comes with a caveat: Until we know of his long-term health, he's still behind Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker to me.

Wiggins finished second, losing to his Kansas teammate by just five votes. Parker finished fourth with a total of 79 votes, two short of third place Dante Exum, the Australian man of mystery.

Now it's time to find a No. 2 man. Wiggins is the overwhelming favorite here, considering how close he was to Embiid and how far apart he was from Exum and Parker. Be sure to drop a comment down below explaining your decision! You've got until Wednesday at Noon ET to vote.
