Quincy Miller was the most recent NBA Draft prospect to workout with the Denver Nuggets.
The 19-year-old Miller completed his workout on Wednesday, a day after Vanderbilt’s big man Festus Ezeli and a number of a second-round prospects worked out for Denver.
Miller is an intriguing prospect, partly due to his age but also thanks to his size (listed at 6-foot-10 and 219 pounds). He had a solid, but not spectacular year with Baylor last season. He averaged 10.6 points, 4.9 rebounds and shot .348 from behind the arc, which wasn’t bad especially after he tore his ACL his senior year in high school.
Some scouts have compared him to Durant, which is a bit far-fetched, but he can score from all over the field. While the Nuggets can take a flier on him with the 20th pick and see how he can develop. However, it isn’t likely especially since they have so much depth at small forward with Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler and Corey Brewer.
Draymond Green was suppose to workout on Wednesday, but had to cancel because he was sick.
On Tuesday, Ezeli led a workout which featured a number of second-round prospects – most notably Florida State’s center Bernard James.
Ezeli is a physical speciment and is still learning how to play basketball despite being 22 years old. He won’t be an offensive threat in the NBA, but could make an impact on the defensive side of the ball thanks to his length.
James may also be worth a gamble in the second round. He is already 27, but has great size (6-10, 230) and can give a team a nice end of bench player.
