2012 NBA Mock Draft: SB Nation's Projection Leaves Nuggets With Options

The Denver Nuggets hold the No. 20 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, so they will certainly have options when they are on the clock in June. The landscape in front of the Nuggets is what matters most right now, and Tom Ziller of SB Nation projects the lottery picks in his latest 2012 NBA Mock Draft. As expected, Anthony Davis flies off the board with the No. 1 overall pick and joins the New Orleans Hornets, but the back end of the lottery is where the Nuggets will be looking for clues.

With Tyler Zeller going to the Milwaukee Bucks, Austin Rivers joining the Phoenix Suns and Meyers Leonard fitting in on the Houston Rockets, Denver can look to other prospects like Syracuse SG Dion Waiters -- who is generating lots of buzz on ESPN -- or perhaps players like Marquis Teague, Jeff Taylor and Arnett Moultrie. There will be plenty of options at No. 20. After hitting on Kenneth Faried in the late first-round last season, Nuggets fans have every season to be excited.
