2014 NBA Draft: Gary Harris goes 19th to the Nuggets

Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

Harris was the second Spartan to go in the first round when Denver chose him with the 19th pick.

While he fell a bit farther then he would've liked, Gary Harris finally heard his name called when he went 19th to the Denver Nuggets. Although Chicago technically selected Harris, the Bulls traded the 16th and 19th picks to Denver in exchange for the rights to Doug McDermott, taken with the 11th pick.

While Harris was pegged by many NBA analysts as a late lottery pick, he slid down the pecking order, possibly due to concerns about his height (6'2" without shoes is a bit small for an NBA shooting guard). However, Harris is one of the few shooting guards who not only can score, but can defend as well.

Gary didn't go as early as he wanted to, but hopefully that gives him a chip on his shoulder to motivate him just like it did with Draymond Green. Thanks for the two years Gary, and best of luck to you in the NBA.
