Writer and Digital Content Specialist

As the 2022 NBA Draft nears, the Denver Nuggets remain hard at work figuring out who they will select with their first round pick or if there are any other players of interest.

With this, the team will host their fourth set of group workouts, bringing their total to 24 prospects.

Some previous prospects include Kendall Brown from Baylor, Wendell Moore Jr. from Duke, David Roddy from CSU, and Nikola Jović from Serbia.

On Thursday, June 16, the Nuggets will bring in six more prospects eligible to be selected in next week's Draft. Below are some important details to know about each player.

Anthony Duruji - Florida - F - 6'7"

This redshirt Senior and Maryland native spent two years at Louisiana Tech before transferring to Florida for two more seasons. Starting in 97of his 120 college games, Duruji was the epitome of a player who's impact went beyond the box score, especially as a defender.

Bryce Hamilton - UNLV - G - 6'4"

Hamilton spent four seasons at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. And in that time, he became a prolific scorer. His points per game increased each year, finishing his collegiate career with 21.8 points a night in his Senior year.

Darryl Morsell - Marquette - G - 6'5"

After four years at the University of Maryland, Morsell was a graduate transfer at Marquette, where he had his best season. Career-highs in points, steals, and three-point percentage showed the type of player he became over the years, and is now ready for the leap to the NBA.

Peyton Watson - UCLA - G/F - 6'8"

Watson spent his Freshman season as a role player for one of the best teams in the nation in 2021-22. His defense was masterful in his short time with the Bruins, and showed flashes of legitimate offensive potential.

Jaizec Lottie - Flagler (Florida) - G - 6'2"

From a Divison-2 private college in Florida, Lottie was absolutely electric in his Senior season. He played in 20 games, averaging 24.4 points in that time. He is also a native of Aurora, Colorado.

Ronaldo Segu - Buffalo - G - 6'0"

Segu was a consistent presence during his four years at Buffalo. Whether he came off the bench or started, he brought an energy to Buffalo's offense, showing significant growth over time.

All names are subject to change. The Nuggets hold the No. 21 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft.
