20. Nikoloz Tskitishvili: 2002, Pick #5
The Nuggets rolled the dice with the number five pick in the 2002 draft, selecting Georgian (the country, not the state) prospect Nikoloz Tskitishvili, amidst the rush of NBA teams scouring Europe to find the next multi-skilled big man.
But “Skita” ended up being one of the biggest busts in recent memory.
He never even averaged four points a game, and he didn’t even play double digit minutes any year after his rookie season. Tskitishvili shot 30% for his career — not a typo — and was out of the league entirely in four years.
