Kristaps Porziņģis, a divisive player around these parts, claimed the sixth spot on the board. Who's number seven?

The NBA Draft is nearly upon us, so what better time to gauge the Orlando Pinstriped Post community's ranking of favorite prospects? That's right: the OPP community Draft board has returned.

Orlando Magic fans voted Thursday to place Latvian forward Kristaps Porziņģis at the sixth spot on the board.

While Magic fans around these parts are wary of Porziņģis--this FanShot really is something else--the seven-footer has plenty of upside and raw skills which could make him a difference-maker on both ends of the floor. Playing for Baloncesto Sevilla in Spain's Liga ACB, Porziņģis averaged 10.7 points, 4.8 rebounds, 0.9 steals, and one block per game while shooting 53.1 percent from the floor.

In this space, SB Nation NBA contributor Kevin O'Connor explained why Porziņģis could be a "steal" in the Draft.

Porziņģis ran away with Thursday's vote, earning nearly half the votes in a 10-player field. Emmanuel Mudiay and Mario Hezonja battled to a virtual tie for second.

In the poll attached to this post, please vote for the NBA Draft prospect who should rank seventh on the Magic's Draft board.

Having reiterated the rules, let's vote! The poll closes at midnight Saturday. We'll reveal the winner and keep the voting rolling daily as often as we can leading up to the Draft on June 25th.
