NBA Draft Grades: Nuggets Earn 'A' For Their 2012 Draft Class From SB Nation

The 2012 NBA Draft is over, and the Denver Nuggets came away with three new prospects. They selected Evan Fournier (No. 20), small forward Quincy Miller (No. 38) and center Izzet Turkyilmaz (No. 50), which is a solid mix of talent for where they selected. Tom Ziller of SB Nation has released his 2012 NBA Draft Grades for the Western Conference teams, and the Denver Nuggets come away with an impressive "A" grade:

Drafted Evan Fournier No. 20, drafted Quincy Miller No. 38, drafted Izzet Turkyilmaz No. 50

Hey! The Nuggets! What do you mean they added two more wings and a player with multiple Zs in his name? I'm stunned!

I have no idea if Fournier will be either a good NBA player or a good fit in the NBA -- he seems like a bigger, less nutty J.R. Smith, which is neither a good or bad thing. Miller is a dice roll, but a dice roll that certainly should have been taken by someone before No. 38. I'm of the mind that Miller will pan out well, provided he's brought along slowly. GRADE: A

Ziller is apparently high on what the West teams did, as the Utah Jazz, Oklahoma City Thunder, Memphis Grizzlies, Dallas Mavericks, Houston Rockets, Golden State Warriors and Portland Trail Blazers also received an "A."

Matt Moore (@HPBasketball) of CBS Sports gave Denver a "D," while Kurt Helin of NBC Sports offered up a "B" mark for the Nuggets.
