No. 19, Denver Nuggets: Chris Singleton, SF, Florida State

Coming from a Suns fan, it is very hard to replace a star player. The Nuggets find themselves in that position most likely. Carmelo seems destined to bolt in free agency or via a trade and there will be some big shoes to fill at the small forward position. Chris Singleton has lottery level talent but he has been too inconsistent to go in that range currently. I would not be shocked at all if he came out of the combine as the best athlete in this draft. He is a high riser that is amazing on the break. He has shown a mid-range game but he still needs to work on hitting his shots consistently. The part of his game where I think he can help any team immediately is his defense. His length and overall athleticism are extremely difficult for almost any opposing small forward to deal with. Nobody is going to replace Carmelo fully, but Chris Singleton could be a nice building block along with Ty Lawson for the Nugget's future.
