Nuggets Weighing Draft Options
This is a pivotal offseason for the Denver Nuggets who are facing plenty of uncertainty. The team will enter the 2014 campaign with a new head coach, general manager and may also lose former All-Star forward Andre Iguodala to free agency this summer.
Heading into Thursday’s draft newly hired general manager Tim Connelly says he will evaluate all options with the team’s first round pick, No. 27 overall.
“We’re always trying to improve,” Connelly said. “If we can identify a guy that can improve on where we are, by all means we’ll bring that guy into the fold.”
Connelly also wouldn’t rule out using the pick as leverage to move up or down in the draft, or even utilize it to acquire a player from another team.
“We’ll try to use that pick to better our roster. That could be selecting a guy at No. 27. That could be moving up or down.
“That could be identifying a guy from a different roster.”
