Three Draft-day options for the Denver Nuggets

  It’s official. The NBA’s draft lottery system hates the Denver Nuggets.

Draft lottery will impact Denver Nuggets' coaching search

If you're surprised that the Denver Nuggets haven't hired a head coach yet, don't be. For one, the season still isn't over, and some of the assistant coaches the Nuggets might want to interview, such as Alvin Gentry, are still with teams in the playoffs. Another reason, though, is because of the draft lottery. As Andrew Feinstein of Denver Stiffs says:"If the Nuggets luck into picks...
