Nuggets select Jamal Murray with No. 7 pick in NBA draft

DENVER (AP) Jamal Murray can score. The Denver Nuggets desperately needed a scorer.

So this was a slam dunk decision, especially since he slipped down the board.

Denver selected the Kentucky shooting guard with the No. 7 pick in the NBA draft on Thursday night as they try to turn around a franchise that's missed the playoffs the past three seasons.
