NBA Mock Draft: Denver Nuggets Select Nate Wolters from South Dakota State

New, 15 comments

SB Nation's NBA Network conducted a mock draft with bloggers from each team site making or trading their "team's" pick. We continue with the twenty-seventh pick in the 2013 NBA Mock Draft with Denver Stiffs selecting Nate Wolters from South Dakota State.

NBA Mock Draft Pick #27 -- Nate Wolters, Guard, South Dakota State

SB Nation's Nuggets blog Denver Stiffs explains the pick:

With plenty of depth on the roster at the wing and big positions, the Nuggets wanted to shore up their point guard spot and make a move towards getting younger in the back-court with Andre Miller set to turn 38 years old during the 2013-14 season. Wolters could be considered a reach at No. 27, but the Nuggets were impressed with his workouts and interviews. Wolters can do a little bit of it all on offense with the ability to work in the pick-and-roll, create, spread the floor, and is even a skilled rebounder for his position. A crafty player that could learn a lot under Miller's wing for a season. Rumors abound that Denver was considering Tony Mitchell, Tim Hardaway Jr., and Glen Rice along with Wolters.
