Default Nuggets draft situation

The Nuggets are known to be high on Saric, who averaged 19.3 points, 9.3 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game for Cibona in the Adriatic League last season. It's not known if the Nuggets would still use as high as their No. 11 overall pick to take him, however.

But that might not be the deterrent it appears to be.

In general, lottery picks are expected to provide some sort of impact for the teams that draft them, but the Nuggets don't necessarily profile like a typical lottery team. They don't have an overwhelming need where a lottery pick could jump into the lineup. Therefore, they could decide to be patient and wait for a player such as Saric if they believe he could be special when he does arrive in the U.S.
