2012 NBA Mock Draft: Sees Kendall Marshall To Denver One Day Before Draft

With just one day remaining before this year's NBA Draft,'s Sam Amick sees North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall falling to the Denver Nuggets with the No. 20 overall pick in his latest mock draft. Marshall was once considered arguably the top point guard in the class, and he'd give the team a new back-up to Ty Lawson:

The Nuggets have been intrigued by Kentucky point guard Marquis Teague, but they'd have to seriously consider Marshall if he dropped this far. With Andre Miller set to become a free agent on Sunday, Denver could land the pass-first point guard who would work well in coach George Karl's selfless system.

Marshall has good size and elite playmaking skills, as the 6-foot-4 guard averaged 9.8 assists per game with the Tar Heels during his sophomore year. He was once seen as a potential lottery pick, so the Nuggets would presumably be pretty pleased if they landed him there.
