2011 NBA Draft: Jordan Hamilton Works Out For Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets held more predraft workouts on Thursday and Texas' Jordan Hamilton was the center of attention for the team. According to the Denver Post, there were five others attending the event: Michigan's Darius Morris, UCLA's Malcolm Lee, Purdue's E'Twaun Moore, Marquette's Jimmy Butler and Florida's Chandler Parsons. Out of those five, Morris is the only other player likely to find himself taken in the first round.

As we saw earlier in the week, Hamilton was projected to the Nuggets in SB Nation's latest NBA mock draft, mostly because Tom Ziller believes, likely correctly, that Hamilton is a far better option than Wilson Chandler. Hamilton averaged 18.6 points and 7.7 rebounds per game for the Longhorns during the 2010-11 season.

DraftExpress and NBADraft.net each place Hamilton to the Charlotte Bobcats at No. 19, while Chad Ford has him go one pick earlier to the Washington Wizards at No. 18. Certainly it is within the realm of possibilities to see Hamilton fall to the Nuggets.

Darius Morris is a 6-foot-5 point guard who averaged 15 points and 6.7 assists last season. He would fit in as the third point guard and eventual backup to Ty Lawson.
