After having zero picks last year, the Nuggets have a single, late first round pick – #20, in this year’s draft, which start around 5:00PM MTÂ and air nationally on ESPN.
There should still be quite a few interesting possibilties available when the Nuggets turn comes around. The Nuggets could use help at guard and a big man with a post game. Two interesting names that could be available are:
Chalmers is a ready-to-play guy who has above average shooting and defensive ability, but has some question marks about being a point guard with below average ball handling and athleticism. However, he did prove at Kansas that he could get to the basket.
Thompson is another solid, ready to play kid who can score in the paint.
Tune in this Thursday on ESPN to see what happens.
