Zeke Nnaji Rumors
Harrison Wind: Zeke Nnaji says he’s added 20 pounds of muscle since the beginning of quarantine (around March): “I’m ready. I’m a worker. I’m someone who’s coachable, who’s disciplined, who brings energy. I’m just excited to be a part of this Nuggets organization.”
Andy Larsen: Here are the names that are consistently connected to the Jazz on draft day: Josh Green, Jaden McDaniels, Desmond Bane, Robert Woodard, Tyler Bey, Sam Merrill, Zeke Nnaji, Udoka Azubuike. There’s obviously potential for surprise, but I’d bet two of those are Jazzmen by night’s end.

Stewart is a bruiser who could complement Nikola Jokic and possibly force opponents to adjust to a two-big lineup. League sources say the Nuggets are targeting a frontcourt player, either Stewart or Zeke Nnaji.
Nnaji is receiving interest from teams in the late teens and 20s, according to multiple league sources. Rudy Gobert’s future with Utah is up in the air, so it makes logical sense to target a rookie big man with upside such as Nnaji, who league sources say is drilling 3-pointers in predraft workouts.
