Redshirt him if you have to.

With a low pick there's no reason to not try and grab a talent like him. Shoot for the stars.

As Denver is shaping up, they will return the same team for 2018-19. Definitely good enough to make the playoffs.

Keep being patient Denver as expiring contracts will be off the books after next season, and/or package them for someone.

Nuggets have a bright future, just stay the course. Please don't do anything stupid as the youth core matures
Jarred Vanderbilt in the 2nd was also a high risk/high reward pick who turned into a low risk/high reward guy when he dropped. Had he gone back to Kentucky and got healthy, he is thought to have been a possible lottery pick next year. McDonald's All American, 12th ranked HS player in the country when he came out...super athletic SF, can guard all 5 positions on D, and handle the ball like a guard at 6'9", excellent passer, can penetrate at will, and he may have been the best rebounder in the draft...he just has to spend a year in the D League and work on getting his shot going, and he could be a steal.
