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 Friday for Kentucky wing Devin Booker to place 13th on the board.
To be clear, Booker tied with Bobby Portis in Friday's vote. He also tied with Portis in Thursday's vote for 12th. But Booker pulled in one more vote than Portis did in Wednesday in our first crack at picking 12th, so we are gonna go ahead and move forward with Booker at 13th.
Moving on: the 18-year-old Booker scored 10 points per game for Kentucky while shooting 47 percent from the floor, including 41.1 percent on three-pointers. That second point is important: he took nearly half of his shots from the outside, and converted at a high rate.
Booker's combination of youth--again, he's only 18--and excellent shooting would make him a welcome addition to Orlando's core, even if his presence might gum up the wing rotation which already includes Victor Oladipo and Evan Fournier.
In the poll attached to this post, please vote for the NBA Draft prospect who should rank 14th on the Magic's Draft board.
Having reiterated the rules, let's vote! The poll closes at midnight Sunday. We'll reveal the winner and keep the voting rolling daily as often as we can leading up to the Draft on June 25th.
