The Nuggets are another young up and coming team who has a good young core with a blend of veterans in their prime. Michael Malone is a good head coach and has improved the chemistry and work ethic of the team. Key players include; Gary Harris, Kenneth Faried, Will Barton, Wilson Chandler, Jusuf Nurkic, and Joffery Lauvergne. With plenty of good picks this draft and their core locked in for the next few years, the Nuggets will have a good opportunity to fill many different positional needs and add depth.
(Updated 7/5/16) The Nuggets came into the draft with a very solid roster and without any true "positions of need", so they intelligently selected the best player available at each pick. Jamal Murray and Malik Beasley add shooting, depth, and athleticism. Juan Hernangomez and Petr Cornelie add shooting, toughness, and depth. Both can also be draft and stash guys for the future. Denver has a stockpile of assets to use in trades or build their team.
