Well, it's true that the idea of the NBA draft has crossed my mind. It's very early indeed, and the Nuggets should be playing into June so I'm aware that we have other things to look forward to. However, I am bored and so I went over to nbadraft.net to take a look at some early mock drafts. Aside from the fact that the LWolves, Grizzlies and Thunder have a combined 12 of the 60 picks (1/5) I noticed that this is the year the Nuggets can swap picks with the Clips. That's all well and good. I'm looking at some of the names that the site has projected to go in the second round and I was amazed to find my boy Lance "Born Ready" Stephenson in the second round, right around where the Nuggies are drafting. I fully expect him to get into the first round. If not though, I prithee that the Nuggets take him. He'd be a great chip and could make JR expendable if need be.
I also have found 2 other guys of extreme interest for this team:
Luke Harangody = Linas Kleiza 2.0
and the guy that perhaps most intrigues me that could be there: Renardo Sidney. 6'10, 275 lbs. That would certainly be some size.
