2012 NBA Draft Results: Quincy Miller Taken By Denver Nuggets

If Quincy Miller had stayed in school another year, he was widely projected as a lottery pick. But, after an inconsistent freshman season where he was recovering from a high school knee injury, his draft stock has plummeted to where he was taken by the Denver Nuggets with the No. 38 selection of the 2012 NBA Draft.

Miller, at 6'10 220 with a 7'1 wingspan, has one of the most intriguing combinations of size, skill and athleticism in the draft, and he if continues to regain explosiveness in his knee, he could end up being a huge steal for the Nuggets.

In Denver, Miller could thrive in George Karl's uptempo system next to a PG like Ty Lawson, but he may need a year to get a chance to contribute, as Karl is notoriously loathe to play rookies.
