The Denver Nuggets are in full-gear in preparation for the 2014 NBA Draft. On Thursday afternoon, they will hold two players for a workout — Gary Harris of Michigan State and Jabari Brown from the University of Missouri.
Harris should be the likely pick for the Nuggets at number eleven if the team does in fact hold on to the pick. He’s a combo guard that can defend and score as he can also boost the Nuggets free-throw percentage as well. Harris is ranked as the 13th best prospect in the draft according to DraftExpress and is currently slated to go to the Phoenix Suns at number 14. Meanwhile over at NBADraft.net, they have Harris going to the Nuggets at 11.
Harris was a force for the Michigan State Spartans last season, averaging 16.7 points per game, 4.0 rebounds to go along with 2.7 assists. One reason I believe he could be an asset for the Nuggets is his defense and free-throw percentage which was 81.0% last season.
Jabari Brown on the other hand is rated as the 48th best prospect in the 2014 NBA Draft according toDraftExpress as Denver could look at taking the shooting guard in the second-round. Brown in his junior year averaged 19.9 points per game, collecting 4.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists, while shooting 46.7% percent from the field. Brown would also earn SEC All-Conference First Team this past season.
