Jusuf Nurkic was drafted into a logjam of center options for Denver, and struggled to get playing time. After the trade to Portland, Nurkic started to develop into more production. Nurkic is averaging 14 and 9 during his time in Portland, and a block and a half a game to go with it. Nurkic is young, and below the age of 25 he still has plenty of time to continue to develop his game. He was an all-rookie back in 2014, and needs continue to focus on consistency if he wants to bump himself up among bigs in this league.
