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 Saturday to place 19-year-old guard prospect Emmanuel Mudiay at the eighth spot on the board.
Rivals.com ranked Mudiay as the second-best prospect in his high-school class, trailing only Jahlil Okafor, so naturally his choice to turn pro overseas rather than attend SMU made waves. In China, Mudiay starred for the Guangdong Southern Tigers, averaging 18 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 5.9 assists per game.
Mudiay will almost assuredly be selected well ahead of eighth when Draft night rolls around, but given Elfrid Payton's status as Orlando's designated point guard of the future, his slide on this Magic fan big board makes sense.
In the poll attached to this post, please vote for the NBA Draft prospect who should rank ninth on the Magic's Draft board.
Having reiterated the rules, let's vote! The poll closes at midnight Monday. We'll reveal the winner and keep the voting rolling daily as often as we can leading up to the Draft on June 25th.
