We finally made it.
After 14 selections--some of them more difficult than others--the 2015 Orlando Pinstriped Post community Draft board is finished.
Orlando Magic fans voted Saturday for Arkansas forward Bobby Portis to claim the 14th and final spot on the board.
Portis made great strides in his sophomore season, improving his per-game scoring, rebounding, and field-goal shooting while only playing two more minutes per game. All told, he posted averages of 17.5 points, 8.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.4 blocks in 29.9 minutes, and he converted on 53.6 percent of his shot attempts. That level of productivity helped him earn second-team Consensus All-American honors in 2015, as well as SEC Player of the Year honors.
Portis doesn't seem to have star potential, but he could make an impact at the NBA level as a high-energy role player off the bench. Orlando could use someone with his combination of size and hustle, but its need for more shooting and rim protection will probably make him an afterthought for it on Draft night.
