Denver Nuggets acquire Gary Harris at No. 19

Michigan State's Gary Harris was ready to pack his bags for Chicago, but after a trade between the Nuggets and Bulls Harris is going to Denver instead.

Harris was drafted at No. 19 by Chicago; however, Denver decided to trade its No. 11 pick Doug McDermott to the Bulls for Nos. 16 and 19.

Harris' ability to play point guard will give the Nuggets room to give their shooting guards a rest. Harris averaged 16.7 points, four rebounds and 2.7 assists per game for Tom Izzo's Michigan State Spartans.
