Juancho Hernangomez is set for a breakout sophomore season according to Harrison Wind.
Hernangomez sits behind Wilson Chandler on the Nuggets depth chart. The veteran Chandler is no bet to stay healthy the whole season so the young forward will be given some opportunities to shine. The 21-year-old shot 40 percent from deep last season and was one of five players to shoot 40 percent from three and post an offensive rebounding percentage greater than five. Last year’s top-15 pick also just helped lead Spain to a bronze medal in EuroBasketball. Hernangomez doesn’t need to be drafted in standard sized leagues, but keep an eye on him if Chandler gets banged up.
