Nuggets Use 19th Pick From Bulls To Take Harris

DENVER (AP) — The Denver Nuggets used the 19th pick acquired from the Chicago Bulls in a draft-day deal to get Michigan State guard Gary Harris.

The Nuggets surrendered the draft rights to Creighton forward Doug McDermott — their pick at No. 11 — to the Bulls for the opportunity to pick up Bosnian center Jusuf Nurkic (16th overall) and Harris.

The 6-foot-4 Harris was high on the Nuggets’ list and rather surprisingly slipped to No. 19. He averaged 16.7 points and 2.7 assists last season for the Spartans.

Denver acquired shooting guard Arron Afflalo earlier in the day from Orlando for guard Evan Fournier and the No. 56 pick in the draft.

The Nuggets also have the No. 41 pick.
