The Nuggets have pieces but they don’t all fit together. With a new coach they might move some of those pieces.
7) Denver Nuggets – Mario Hezonja (SF – Barcelona)
At 6’8 Hezonja can play shooting guard or small forward. If the Nuggets move things around they will need someone to fill those spots. He is a good athlete and is not lacking in the confidence department.
Hezonja can knock down shots as a spot up shooter or coming off screens. He shot 38% from beyond the arc overseas. He has the ability to handle the ball and create plays off the pick-and-roll. He’s not always consistent when it comes to making plays.
He runs the floor very well and can finish at the basket. While off the ball he does a good job of cutting and is capable of catching lob passes. If he is feeling good he will take bad shots.
At times he loses focus on the defensive end but when he is engaged he can be a scrappy defender. New Nuggets coach Mike Malone may be able to mold him into a better defensive player. He is only 20 years old and might stay overseas for another year or two before coming over.
