While the Denver Nuggets are busy with their head coaching search, there is also some discussion in the front office about how to approach Thursday night’s draft. Denver is happy with the current state and direction of their franchise, so they are keeping all options open and there is a possibility that the team could move their first-round pick in hopes of loading up on future picks.
According to reports, the Nuggets have also considered a move back in the draft order.
From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:
Denver’s pick at 27 is available, teams tell Y! Nuggets open to future 1st, or moving back into 30′s. Nuggets like their young roster core.

The Nuggets are coming off of a great season that led to George Karl becoming NBA Coach of the Year before being fired.
Once the team gets their new leading man, we can expect them to charge forward with their impressive, young squad as they look to make a deep postseason run.
