2012 NBA Mock Draft: SI.com's Sam Amick Projects Tony Wroten To Nuggets

The consensus for the Denver Nuggets in the 2012 NBA Draft is that there is no consensus on whom the Denver Nuggets should select. There is no glaring hole that needs to be fixed, so the team can look at the best player available. However, Sports Illustrated's Sam Amick believes the Nuggets should take Washington Huskies point guard Tony Wroten with the 20th overall selection:

As good as the point guard combo of Ty Lawson and Andre Miller was for the Nuggets, Miller is a free agent and may not be back. Wroten has been criticized for his decision-making and ability to play under control, and he shot only 16.1 percent from three-point range last season. But he's also a potent player who has drawn comparisons to Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook for his aggressive style.

The Nuggets do want to bring back Andre Miller, which makes the selection of a point guard somewhat questionable. However, if the Nuggets believe they won't be able to bring him back, point guard might be the best choice for the team. Julyan Stone is the only other point guard beside Lawson on the roster and his potential is probably not close to Wroten's.

Wroten averaged 16.7 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.6 assists as a freshman in 2011-12.
