After seeing that lineup last week in which the Nuggets put out three 7-footers on the floor, it seems like Denver has a logical move to make in the NBA draft: Get. Bigger.
At least that’s what it seems like with the latest mock draft from Kyle Boone of CBS Sports, who has the Nuggets selecting Washington forward Isaiah Stewart with the No. 21 overall pick.
The 6-foot-9, 250-pound Stewart averaged 17 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.1 blocks last season as a freshman for the Huskies.
“Despite his throwback style of play, Isaiah Stewart has a new-age impact on winning as an energizing big who can block shots, finish around the rim and score it efficiently,” Boone writes.
