The Nuggets draft picture just became a little murkier.
There were rumors floating around that
Even though the 20th pick was thought to be a little too high for Lawson it did seem to be a good fit as Lawson excels at leading the fast break and playing at a fast pace. At this point I have not really decided who I would like to see the Nuggets target with their pick.
All I knew was that I was not comfortable with drafting Lawson with the 20th pick. My number one issue with him was he is not a good perimeter shooter. Between Andre Miller, Anthony Carter and Junior Harrington, I have had enough of point guards who cannot hit an open 20 footer.
The facts that Lawson was happy with one good performance at the Orlando Pre-Draft Camp that led him to sit out the last two days, was busted for underage drinking while being behind the wheel of his car and his no show at a workout for the Nuggets caused me to loose even further interest.
As someone who was worried the rumors of a Nuggets/Lawson connection were true, count me relieved he will be playing another year at
