2012 NBA Draft Results: Nuggets Select Quincy Miller With 38th Overall Pick

The Denver Nuggets have selected Baylor forward Quincy Miller with the 38th overall pick in Thursday night's NBA draft. Many drafts had Miller pegged as a late first round pick, so this has to be considered a solid value pick for the Nuggets well into the second round.

Once considered one of the elite high school players in the nation, Miller had a major knee injury that sapped some of his athleticism. Despite the injury, Miller still showed flashes of his well-rounded game while playing for Baylor, averaging 10.6 PPG, 4.9 RPG and 1.4 APG while shooting 45 percent from the field as a freshman.

Many analysts believed that Miller could potentially emerge as a top-10 selection in the 2013 draft if he stayed at Baylor for another year, so the Nuggets are presumably pleased with landing him here. He still has the size (6-foot-10) and scoring ability that made him so intriguing in high school, so it'll be interesting to watch him develop.
