30 in 30 – Nuggets

Denver Nuggets

Denver boast a popular and talented front court which contains Kenneth Faired and Danilo Gallinari both of whom are talented scorers.

Their back court offers the perfect match, rookie guard Jamal Murray was a sort after player who will fit in nicely with second year guard Emmanuel Mudiay.

Murray was taken at pick number seven and comes out of Kentucky with averages of 20 points per game, over five assists per game and a steal per contest.

The Nuggets’ draft was ranked, by ESPN, as one of the best this year. The accolade was with thanks to the selection of Juancho Hernangomez at the number 15 pick. The 20 year old Spanish forward offers good defence and a good scoring option in the post.

Hernangomez has been dubbed as the next big thing to carry Spain as Pau Gasol has done in recent years.

The Nuggets’ main addition via free agency was the veteran guard Mike Miller who will offer his experience and knowledge to their talented young guards.

Watch out for – Emmanuel Mudiay – explosive

The Nuggets’ young roster may be set for a breakthrough year thanks to strength in depth and a great level of leadership.
