Nah’Shon ‘Bones’ Hyland was a surprising pick to some but the Nuggets could have a real sleeper here. Many thought the Nuggets needed a 3-and-D guard, and while Hyland is more 3 than D, he is an absolute bucket. He has a vast offensive repertoire combined with the ability to shoot Trae Young range three-pointers.
Great offense beats great defense any day of the week, and that might be what Denver envisions for their basketball team. They needed a defensive guard and/or big yet they choose an offensive-minded guard, so get ready for a lot of high-scoring affairs next season if they cannot improve in those areas.
