This year’s summer league promises to be an exicting one for Denver. Malik Beasley and Juancho Hernangomez are both expected to play and there’s a chance we’ll get to see draft and stash prospects Nikola Radicevic and Petr Cornelie as well. Plus don’t forget that as of right now the Nuggets have three picks in next week’s draft. No telling if they end up drafting all three players but it’s in general a safe bet that whomever they select will also be on the Summer League squad (save for a guy like OG Anunoby who is still recovering from injury).
