Nate Timmons of Denver Stiffs has one player the Nuggets may try to acquire in the first round:
One guy I’ll be keeping an eye on … Lance Stephenson, formerly of the Cincinnati Bearcats. Stephenson was one of eight players chronicled in the 2008 documentary Gunnin’ for That #1 Spot. Lance was just 15 or 16 years-old when he was featured in the film and was already a legend waiting to happen growing up in Brooklyn as he was dubbed “Born Ready.” The other players featured in that film? Portland Trail Blazers guard Jerryd Bayless, Rookie of the Year and Sacramento Kings guard Tyreke Evans, Kings forward Donte Green, Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love, Miami Heat forward Michael Beasley, MIlwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings and Duke forward Kyle Singler. Stephenson has some tough competition to keep up with and will possibly be the seventh straight player of the eight drafted in the first round from the film.
