2012 NBA Mock Draft: Chad Ford's 9.0 Mock Says Nuggets Will Pick PG Kendall Marshall

The latest mock draft from ESPN's Chad Ford suggests the Denver Nuggets could find a young, cheap PG Andre Miller replacement in North Carolina's PG Kendall Marshall. According to Ford, Marshall would fit nicely on the Nuggets bench:

20. Nuggets -- PG Kendall Marshall

Analysis: Andre Miller's contract is up with the Nuggets this summer and, in most every way, Marshall is the perfect replacement. They have similar builds and games. While Ty Lawson is the clear starter in Denver, the Nuggets could really use depth at the position. Royce White and Andrew Nicholson are both options here as well.

Marshall played two seasons with the North Carolina Tar Heels, and set himself apart in his sophomore campaign with some impressive play, if not gaudy statistics. Here is a look at his stats from the 2011-12 NCAA season:
