Lydon was acquired on draft night from the Utah Jazz and the Nuggets are looking for the versatile big man to potentially solidify their frontcourt depth. Lydon will be competing with Trey Lyles, Darrell Arthur and Juan Hernangomez for reserve minutes, though he'll likely have a tough time cracking the regular rotation with so much depth at power forward. A 7'0” wing span is what makes him so intriguing, as he's a rare defensive-first player. That's evident by the fact that he averaged 1.0 steal and 1.4 blocks per game last season at Syracuse, in what's traditionally one of the toughest defenses in the NCAA. He also did that while adding 13.2 points and 8.6 rebounds per game to his tally on an impressive 52 percent shooting. That being said, the 24th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft will likely have to settle for a developmental role in his rookie season and could potentially see time with the team's G-League affiliate.
