Nuggets Draft Wildcat Zeke Nnaji with 22nd Pick

Zeke Nnaji accomplished a lot in a short time in Tucson, and now he’s a 1st round draft pick after the Nuggets selected him with the No. 22 overall pick.

Nnaji, the 2019-20 Pac-12 Freshman of the Year, led the Pac-12 with 14 double-doubles, trailing only Deandre Ayton in that category as a freshman. 

The 6-foot-11, 240 pound forward averaged 16.1 points and 8.6 rebounds per game. 

Nnaji is the second Wildcat to be selected in this year’s draft joining Josh Green, who was drafted by Dallas with the No. 18 overall pick.
