Probably will be groomed to take over for Chauncey Billups in a few years.

Awesome pickup. Lawson looked amazing in the NCAA championship game.

Love Lawson. I watch a lot of UNC games, obviously, and I really like his chances of being a starter someday. I knew when Minny took him they were taking him for somebody. I'm glad it was the Nuggets!

Hopefully he can come in, stay healthy, and give them 15-20 minutes next year of smart basketball. Other than that, he just needs to soak up as much Chauncey as he can over the next couple years.

And he doesn't have to change team colors!

His style will be a great change of pace when he comes in for Billups.

At No. 34, the Nuggets selected Spain's Sergio Llull. The 21-year-old Llull has played in Spain's pro leagues since he was 17.

Probably a pick for someone else unless the guy plans on staying overseas for couple years.

I may have heard it wrong - We actually traded the sergio kid. I am glad we kept Lawson. I would really really like to see us get rid of AC.

Looks like the Nuggets sent the Spaniard to the Rockets.

Because the players in this draft suck. Very weak class overall, I prefer next years draft.

Anyway, I like what Mitch has done for the Lakers in the draft.


#29 pick = $3M
not having guarrenteed 1st round salary = $1M x 2 (lux tax) = $2M
#42 pick = $1.5M

$6.5M + plus two 2011 2nd rounders

Mitch saved the Lakers over 6 mil. presumably that money is going to be put to re-signing Ariza and Odom. Hopefully we can upgrade the PG position...

I had a feeling we'd make a move for Lawson. They were in love with him last year and with Chauncey's age and AC's suckiness, it makes sense. Listening to Warkentein on The Fan this week, he mentioned how deep the PG class was and how we'd have the ability to move into the 1st round - all the signs were there. I just read an article that the Nugz had him targeted since last year and were going to do everything within means to land him.

I had that same feeling, again because I expected us to land him and also because Min already took 2 PGs. As soon as they cut to Ric Bucher I just knew we had landed him!

It is strange, my understanding is the Nugz may have landed some serious cash for that pick which should help with the luxury tax. Quite simply teams sell 2nd round picks (which are not guaranteed by the way) because roster sizes are so small that if there's no reason to take a guy with a minimum chance of making the roster when you can find many equal or better players in the FA Pool/D-League. The Nugz roster is so set there's only real wiggle room for 1-2 players tops and with Lawson being guaranteed, that other spot can go to a veteran or guy from the summer league team who'd make much more of an impact (for example, that "spot" last year went to Dhantay Jones) than someone they'd take in the 2nd round.

I am pumped we got Lawson, but even more excited at the prospects of dumping AC. Unfortunately I just read a quote from Karl that he's still going to push to bring him back - ugh. Hopefully the FO puts it's foot down since they'll be going over the luxury tax to resign Bird and Jones.

Haven't followed college B-ball much...but his highlights look like Robert Pack with a better jumper. Or is he better than that? Leading a team to the title says something.

Lawson is the typical middle of the road Guard coming out of college. He won't help the Nuggets. The Nuggets need a real center.
