DENVER (AP) - Newly hired general manager Tim Connelly says the youthful Denver Nuggets will consider all options with the No. 27 pick in the NBA draft on Thursday.
As it stands, the Nuggets are already one of the youngest teams in the league.
Connelly fully believes that Quincy Miller, a little-used forward last season, could be just the player to give the Nuggets a lift following a year in which the team won a franchise-most 57 games, only to bow out in the first round of the playoffs. Connelly says of Miller: "We already feel like we have a first-round pick in Quincy."
The Nuggets enter the draft not only with a fresh GM but a new head coach after Brian Shaw was brought on board to replace George Karl.
