Nuggets Seriously Looking At Local Talent
(FortCollins-CO) The Denver Nuggets have reportedly been very seriously considering drafting local talent Louis Amundson from Monarch High School in Louisville, Colorado. Amundson attended UNLV after his high school playing days were over and has impressed many of the Nuggets coaching staff while working out in Denver. The Nuggets do not have a first round pick and are hoping that Amundson is still available when the 49th pick rolls around. Amundson is big on the boards, measuring in a 6'9" and 225 lbs, with a season high 21 rebounds against Hawaii. For the 2005-06 season at UNLV, Louis averaged 14.3 points and 8.6 rebounds in 28 minutes per game. If Amundson is around this late in the draft, don't be surprised if the Nuggets select this local talent.
