Two power forwards trending in opposite directions right now are Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger and St. Bonaventure’s Andrew Nicholson. Sullinger’s stock appears to be plummeting after NBA doctors “red flagged” his medical report because of concerns about his back.

With the 2012 NBA Draft approaching, the Denver Nuggets evaluated six college prospects at Pepsi Center on Monday. Among the group was University of Colorado power forward Austin Dufault, a four-year starter who played in a school-record 136 games. It was Dufault’s first NBA workout. “It’s awesome (to be here in Denver),” Dufault said. “Over the last four years, I’ve turned into a Nuggets fan because they’ve been down the road (from Boulder). I’ve been to a couple of games and I’m familiar with their coaching staff. Just being able to come here and work out is a blessing and it’s an opportunity that I’m very thankful for.” Dufault was joined by Memphis guard Will Barton, Tennessee Tech guard Kevin Murphy, St. Bonaventure forward Andrew Nicholson, Kansas guard Tyshawn Taylor and Kentucky guard Marquis Teague.

The Warriors ideally would like to deal the No. 7 pick, one of their selections in the 30s and Dorell Wright for an upgrade at small forward. Then, they could use the remaining pick (No. 30 or 35) on a big man, like St. Bonaventure's Andrew Nicholson, and have the mid-level exception to offer an experienced free-agent point guard.
