The Denver Nuggets have selected Baylor forward Quincy Miller with the 38th overall pick in Thursday night's NBA draft. Many drafts had Miller pegged as a late first round pick, so this has to be considered a solid value pick for the Nuggets well into the second round.
Once considered one of the elite high school players in the nation, Miller had a major knee injury that sapped some of his athleticism. Despite the injury, Miller still showed flashes of his well-rounded game while playing for Baylor, averaging 10.6 PPG, 4.9 RPG and 1.4 APG while shooting 45 percent from the field as a freshman.
Many analysts believed that Miller could potentially emerge as a top-10 selection in the 2013 draft if he stayed at Baylor for another year, so the Nuggets are presumably pleased with landing him here. He still has the size (6-foot-10) and scoring ability that made him so intriguing in high school, so it'll be interesting to watch him develop.
