While we wait for SB Nation's blogger NBA mock draft, Tom Ziller steps in with his latest 2011 NBA Mock Draft. Ziller joins the Chad Ford chorus at the No. 22 pick for the Denver Nuggets by giving the mile high team Tennessee forward Tobias Harris:
Picking Harris will earn a nod from me from about No. 14 on. Good prospect.
How does this selection come about? Let's see where some of the players the Nuggets have brought in for workouts go in this mock. Texas forward Jordan Hamilton is the final pick of the lottery at No. 14 to the Houston Rockets. Washington State's Klay Thompson goes at No. 17 to the New York Knicks; Florida State forward Chris Singleton is off the board at No. 19 to the Charlotte Bobcats; and Morehead State forward Kenneth Faried goes one pick earlier than the Nuggets' at No. 21 to the Portland Trail Blazers.
There does appear to be enough wiggle room for players like Faried, Singleton or Thompson to drop down to the No. 22 pick. We'll know for sure in June 23.
