Draft picks are valuable commodities in the NBA, but they have their downsides. For one, drafted players have, of course, never played a game in the NBA, and any draft pick can turn out to be a bust. Young NBA players, on the other hand, have proven their worth, and the Denver Nuggets have a cache of young, proven NBA players.
Lots of teams calling Denver to trade for Nuggets' young players. 1of several moves being discussed: Wil Chandler to G State for 7th pick— Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) June 27, 2012
