It may be one of the weakest NBA Drafts in recent years, but it seems the Denver Nuggets may be one of the few teams that would be willing to move up in the draft.
Chris Tomasson said via Twitter on Wednesday that the Nuggets haven’t ruled out moving up to draft Kenneth Faried, Tobias Harris and Klay Thompson. And considering that the three players stocks have been rising, it isn’t likely that any of three will be around when the Nuggets draft with the 22nd pick.
Nuggets do have the assets to move up in the draft, one being Raymond Felton but no doubt if they find a taker for Al Harrington to move up a few spots they would do it in a heartbeat.
If the Nuggets aren’t able to move up and if Faried, Harris and Thompson don’t fall to Denver, players like Reggie Jackson, Darius Morris, JaJuan Johnson and Nolan Smith will all be around in the early 20s.
