Orlando Pinstriped Post Community Big Board 2014: Moving on to No. 6

Julius Randle took fifth on the board. Let's continue.

Jonathan Daniel

Former Kentucky forward Julius Randle took fifth place on the community draft board, barely edging out Indiana product Noah Vonleh. Randle averaged 15 points and 10 rebounds in his only season at Kentucky and nearly led a young Wildcats squad to a national championship, losing to Connecticut in the final game.

Randle is horse. He has a nose for the ball on the glass and a penchant for destroying defenders on his way to the rim. He's skilled around the rim and a 71 percent free throw shooter. His deficiencies lie on the defensive end, where he'll never be an above average rim protector.

He beat out Vonleh, who the Magic are reportedly set to work out in June, by six percent. Former Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart took 14 percent of the vote. Combo forwards Dario Saric and Aaron Gordon each grabbed four percent of the vote while Doug McDermott grabbed one percent.

Remember: You have until Noon ET on Sunday to vote, so make it count. Be sure to drop a comment down below explaining your decision. Or I guess you could practice voter confidentiality. Whatever you want.
