While we saw SB Nation's latest NBA mock draft go with Texas small forward Jordan Hamilton for the Denver Nuggets at No. 22, who else might we see the team look at? Over at ESPN Insider, Chad Ford continues to project Tennessee forward Tobias Harris as the picks selection at No. 22. Explaining this pick, Ford writes:
He can play both the 3 and 4, and he has a very high basketball IQ and an NBA body. Harris doesn't do any one thing at an elite level, but he is one of the most well-rounded players in the draft.
With Arron Afflalo and Danilo Gallinari able to play the 3, Harris could see more time at the 4 spot if Kenyon Martin leaves via free agency.
Ford also offers three possible players who could also go to the Nuggets: Nikola Vucevic, Charles Jenkins and Tyler Honeycutt. Vucevic is a 7-foot center out of USC who has improved his stock during predraft workouts. He averaged 17.1 points and 10.3 rebounds per game in his junior year in 2010-11. Charles Jenkins is a Hofstra point guard who can also move over to the 2. He's getting late lay as a late-first-round pick. UCLA's Tyler Honeycutt has been a late selection in the first round, but here he is one of Ford's next five in.
The NBA Draft takes place on Thursday, June 23.
