NBA Mock Draft 2012: Denver Nuggets Pegged To Take Big Man Arnett Moultrie By Draft Express

The Denver Nuggets hold the No. 20 overall selection in Thursday's 2012 NBA Draft. As a team with a solid bench and without a glaring weakness, the Nuggets will have plenty of options when it's their turn to choose.

One name that's been tied to Denver throughout the process is Arnett Moultrie, a big man out of Mississippi State. That's exactly who Jonathan Givony has the Nuggets taking in the latest mock draft by Draft Express, out via Yahoo! Sports.

20. Denver Nuggets

Arnett Moultrie: PF/C, 21, 6-11, 233, Mississippi St., Junior

The Nuggets have good depth at pretty much every position. This should allow them to draft the most talented player that falls to No. 20. Moultrie has the skill level and athleticism to see minutes at power forward alongside Denver's bevy of centers, but is also big enough to play alongside Kenneth Faried and Al Harrington.

Moultrie averaged 15.8 points and 10.6 rebounds a game for the Bulldogs last season.
