When preparing for the 2022 NBA Draft, I didn’t give serious credence to the idea that the Denver Nuggets would end the draft with more draft picks than they started. As the Nuggets worked to find ways to improve their roster heading into an important 2022-23 season with championship expectations, they were faced with a tall task tonight. With two late first round draft picks, the Nuggets were on the clock to maximize their contending window. After trading a 2027 protected first round pick to the Oklahoma City Thunder along with JaMychal Green for the 30th pick on Thursday, Denver’s long term flexibility became almost nonexistent. The Nuggets are now legally unable to trade any first round picks until the 2029 first rounder becomes eligible to be traded during the next league year.
