Denver entered Thursday night with zero picks in the 2019 NBA Draft, but Connelly and the Nuggets did not let that stop them and the reward now seemingly outweighs the risk for Denver. This moved Memphis up two slots in the NBA Draft to take Gonzaga guard/forward Brandon Clarke. Salah Mejri, who measures in at 7-foot-2, is as tall as Bol.
However, per NBADraft.net's Jonathan Wasserman, even if Bol were to slip in the 2019 NBA Draft, he's not expected to make it past the Boston Celtics.
Bol Bol, a 7-2 center out of the University of OR, slipped out of the first round in the 2019 NBA Draft.
There were many who considered Bol a first-round talent, mock drafts had Bol going in the 13-18 range in the first round.
"As the night progressed, we got pretty aggressive".
"I just want to prove everyone wrong and be the best player I can be".

ESPN's Jonathan Givony said on "The Lowe Post" podcast on Friday that Connelly said he had Bol in his top 10 prospects. Bol Bol - who also checks in at a frail 208 pounds at 7-foot-2 - played in just nine games during his time with the Oregon Ducks but managed to average 21 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 2.7 blocks per game.
The No. 4-ranked recruit in the 2018 ESPNU 100 rankings, Bol was the highest-rated player to sign with the Ducks in school history.
Bol figures to form quite a tandem in the middle with Nuggets All-Star Nikola Jokic.
Bol clearly looked dejected at being selected so low in the draft, but would have been heartened by the reaction in the arena to his name being read out. All the long-term planning for Bol's role on a title-contending Nuggets team starts with his foot being healed. The Nuggets won 54 games last season and fell just one game short of a Western Conference Finals appearance.
Bol will have to get in the weight room and add to his 208-lb frame, think of Jazz star Rudy Gobert who plays around 245 but came into the league at 220.
"It made us more comfortable, " Connelly said.
