As the hours leading up to the 2017 NBA Draft wear thin, more and more rumors begin circulating.

Jonathan Givony of Draft Express reports that the Los Angeles Lakers, Atlanta Hawks, Brooklyn Nets, Milwaukee Bucks, Portland Trail Blazers, and the Houston Rockets could all be looking to move into the 10-15 range of the draft. Denver, who holds the 13th overall pick tonight, could be a candidate to move back.

Throughout the pre-draft process, Denver worked out a number of players that could go in the later portions of the first round, including T.J. Leaf, Bam Adebayo, Derrick White, Terrance Ferguson, John Collins, Justin Patton, and Jarret Allen, and this is perhaps another indicator that Denver is considering trading back in the draft.

Denver could look to trade back if they feel they can get a prospect they like at a later point in the draft while also taking back an asset or two.
