Before the Summer of LeBron begins, it will be Draft of John Wall and surprise, surprise, the Nuggets don’t have a draft pick. Even when they did they traded it (Alexis Ajinca, Leon Powe and Sergio Lull) and when they didn’t they actually traded into the draft (Ty Lawson, Linas Kleiza and Sonny Weems).
While the Nuggets are doubtful to trade for a Top-10 pick, and they may not even trade into the first round (even though teams like San Antonio and Orlando might be willing to deal their picks). However, Denver could trade into the second round, where the likes of Elliott Williams, Willie Warren, Jarvis Varnado, Craig Brackins, Jordan Crawford and Jerome Jordan are projected. Guys like Williams and Crawford have the potential to be stars in the NBA, while Varnado and Jordan could be solid role players in the NBA.
