The Nuggets selected Spanish combo forward Juan Hernangomez with the No. 15 pick.
Hernangomez is a bit of a Swiss army knife on offense and he is gritty, he rebounds and he has the potential to grow into being an NBA-level defender. The upside might be a bit limited but the Nuggets should have a nice, albeit young frontcourt rotation this season — though we’re not entirely sure that Hernangomez isn’t being stashed overseas this season. Redraft owners won’t need to pay attention to him this year and Dynasty owners can watch from afar.
Spoke with Denver Nuggets draftee Juan Hernangomez (#15). Told me nothing concrete, but is very open to being stashed for a year in Europe.
