5 Draft Prospects Guaranteed to Interest the Denver Nuggets
USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Nuggets need help, and the upcoming NBA draft may be the best place for them to turn.

After setting a franchise record with 57 wins in 2012-13, the Nuggets cleared house last offseason, bringing in Tim Connelly to be the new general manager and Brian Shaw to take over as head coach. But the Nugs disappointed when an injury-riddled 2013-14 season led to only 36 wins and no playoff spot.

Now, Denver has some roster holes to fill, maybe none bigger than the one at shooting guard.

The Nuggets can feel confident moving forward with players like Ty Lawson, Kenneth Faried and Danilo Gallinari (if healthy), but they need someone else to complement those guys in the starting lineup.

Randy Foye shot well again this past season and is sitting on a perfectly reasonable contract which has him at about $3 million a year, but Denver can look to upgrade at that spot.

After Tuesday night's NBA Lottery, the Nuggets will head into the draft with the No. 11 pick in the first round. Really, what Denver needs is another wing. If it can score one of the top perimeter players from a deep draft, it should be happy with the start of its offseason.
