David Thorpe of ESPN released a Top 50 NBA 2008-2009 rookie class ranking today and the Nuggets 2nd round 2008 draft pick, Sonny Weems was not listed. The 6-foot-6 Arkansas forward averaged 15 points a game for the Razorbacks before be drafted 39th by the Bulls and then being traded to the Nuggets. Weems scored 17 points in a summer league game but it apparently was not enough to appear on Thorpe’s radar.

I think the Nuggets are truly hoping for some athleticism and inspired defense out of Weems in order for him to see playing time in the upcoming season. Coach Karl is not know for giving rookies much playing time, so Weems will have to show something special in remaining summer league play and preseason games and practices in order to get off the Nuggets bench.
