2012 NBA Mock Draft: Chad Ford Notes Nuggets' Top-10 Trade Scenario, Takes Kendall Marshall In Latest Version

The Denver Nuggets currently hold the No. 20 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, but in Chad Ford's Mock Draft 10.0 there is an interesting trade scenario floated where the Nuggets could end up in the top-10. Ford's official pick at No. 20 is point guard Kendall Marshall -- with Iowa State forward Royce White next up on the list -- and Missouri shooting guard Kim English at No. 38, but he also points out that Chris Broussard of ESPN has reported the Nuggets have talked about a deal involving Wilson Chandler for the No. 7 pick and Dorell Wright from the Golden State Warriors.

Top players available at pick No. 7 in Ford's mock include Dion Waiters, Harrison Barnes, John Henson, Austin Rivers, Meyers Leonard and Jeremy Lamb. Could the Nuggets pull off a draft-day stunner and move up for a blue chip prospect?

The NBA Draft takes place on Thursday, June 28 starting at 5:00 p.m. MT on ESPN.
