DENVER (CBS4) – The Nuggets will have the 14th pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.
The draft order was announced tonight at the NBA Draft Lottery in Chicago. Nuggets guard Jamal Murray was on hand representing the team.
Staying at 14 is not a surprise for the Nuggets. Since the NBA Draft Lottery increased to 14 teams in 2005 after the addition of the Charlotte Bobcats in 2004 the number 14 pick has never moved up.
The Nuggets are now 0-16 when it comes to moving up in the drawing.
The Nuggets will have the 14th pick in the first round and do not own their second-round pick — which was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers via UTA to Chicago.
However, the Nuggets own second round picks from the Los Angeles Clippers (43rd overall) and Golden State Warriors (58th overall).
Denver finished the 2017 season with a 46-36 record.
The Phoenix Suns will have the number one overall pick.
The NBA Draft will be on June 21.
