Christian Braun (21st overall, 2022)
Peyton Watson (30th overall, 2022)
Julian Strawther (29th overall, 2023)

Best 2nd Round Pick (2017-Present): Monte Morris
Biggest Draft Day Steal (2017-Present): Monte Morris
Notable Draft Busts (2017-Present): None

(The best second round pick was between Morris and Jarred Vanderbilt, but Morris played at Denver longer, so he gets the nod here. No draft busts are listed, since their only lottery pick since 2017 is a starter on a championship team, but the Nuggets’ worst first round pick since our website came into existence easily would be Tyler Lydon, who played less than a hundred career minutes in the NBA and averaged less than a point per game for his NBA career.)
