Reunited once again, the duo of Cole and Sam discuss the significance of Greg Monroe signing with the Boston Celtics and what he can bring to the team.
Along with the movement of Monroe heading east to the Celtics, both discuss Nikola Mirotic heading west to the New Orleans Pelicans and teaming up with Anthony Davis. Both figure out how he’ll do with him being there as the Pelicans will be without DeMarcus Cousins.
Another headline topic is the Magic possibly trading Aaron Gordon. Both debate how true the rumor might be.
In this episode, Sam has his weekly podcast with Cole Zwicker where they break down various roster movement and NBA Draft news.
In this episode, there was a lot to hit on. They start with 10 minutes on Greg Monroe signing in Boston (both are, overall, quite positive on the choice). Then, they briefly chat about the Nikola Mirotic trade to New Orleans. Does that deal make sense for the Pelicans? Should Mirotic have exercised the option in his deal?
Next, they move on to the Joakim Noah news that he’s leaving the Knicks for the time being. What are the Knicks’ options? Should they stretch his contract? Should they just ride out the final two years? In their final NBA topic, they chat about the report from The Athletic that the Magic are quietly shopping Aaron Gordon. Should the Magic seriously consider moving him? Also, why?
Then, they break down Mohamed Bamba, and how he’s turned it up significantly over the last month of the season. How strongly do they believe in his game? Where do they have him on their boards? Finally, they chat quickly about Lonnie Walker, and how he has the look of a lottery pick despite a slow start.
