Whom the Denver Nuggets Should Target in the 2015 NBA Draft

Thanks to a turbulent 2014-15 campaign, the Denver Nuggets are in flux this offseason.

Sure, the likes of Ty Lawson, Kenneth Faried and Danilo Gallinari are still on the roster, but much of the team's future is up in the air.

The late-season firing of Brian Shaw gave way to the current coaching vacancy, and the squad has holes all over the roster to shore up for the long term. Denver lacks both offensive efficiency and defensive consistency, and it will take more than one piece to launch the club back to contention in the Western Conference.

However, the No. 7 pick in the draft is a good start in the right direction. This year's crop of prospects is pretty deep, so a pick in the middle of the lottery could yield a standout performer.

I wouldn't blame Denver for plucking the best player available, but it could also aim for a talented swingman or stretch forward.
