"jalen slugs" Discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"This isn't anthony davis in thousand twelve. I think you can make a better case to go backwards and still get one of the three at three pick. And you know the caveat with cleveland is to have these two guards. They have the sexton situation which is so weird. He's in all these trade rumors that even know why you would give up real assets for them when you have to pay them and we'd never seen him do really anything well then garland thing It just looks like the way it's going to play out as they would get mobely great for them. But if i'm detroit. And i could move backwards and try to dangle kate and see if that's something i look. This is all master batori because we know how this is gonna go. It's gonna go cunningham. One it's gonna go green to and it's going to go moby three and we'll get to a cleveland's gonna do a second so if i'm staying with this pick charts just. I'm not taking mobile here right. I have to cater you. Want me to take mobile. I would take mobile. I don't care like take the best player. Don't over think this and if a question just go for it. Yeah what what do you. What do you think mobley's like implied mode like elite offenses for him to leap to be like to move to the front of this conversation. What do you think in the nba. Like you mentioned jaanus like janas transition getting to the rim things like that he doesn't. He's not is twitchy and like as fast as i mean. He moves really. Well i'm just curious what you think. I can make it off as he could straight up in three or four years. How the at the free throw line and go to the rim and make the pass for the shock. I think that's coming for him. I'm not taking mobile at one. When i can get him at two or three. So he's my guy i'm not. I'm not taking one. I'm going backwards. And i don't think houston would be interested. So that out. Have to try to entice cleveland or the other option is if okay so can go from six to three. Get to three and then move up again from three to one then. Basically have to make to trades casey. I know you talked about this possibility. But what does it take for them to go from six to three. I'll probably quite a bit. I mean into that top four. That's kind of a threshold. Most people consider the top four consensus top floor with jalen green jalen slugs and of course we talked about having moby and and cunningham. So there's multiple first round draft picks there but would that said the price in past years. We've seen the luka trade deal. Tatum false typically to move into the top five. The prices one extra first round draft pick i would expect with the nature of the strap it would be one plus so maybe i'll do kyle that change. Because we the price for a superstar has basically doubled tripled the pain who were talking about with picks right. But as casey said. It's like. I can get luca for camera. Should trae young. Basically i can. I can move up a couple of spots. And i'm giving up one pick. That's it if you're okay see why would any give up you. Give up to i to go from six to three. And then you give up another unprotected i to go from three to one. And plus like they have. Those clipper picks that again. Tastier by day of course is not even playing next year. Who knows what's going to happen with him. In free agency and their the clippers their jinx have should have a blackadder midcourt I i just feel like you at least have to kick the tires with o'casey as a two part thing based on this whole what is. What is the guy actually worth now. 'cause it's two hundred cents on the dollar for anybody who has a chance to be a top twenty guy. What do you think of that. Yeah i guess it just comes down to. I don't know that there's as much as i like. These guys at the top we were charts our in this conversation the other day that like i think it was charged but As much as i like these guys all three of them are like high floor. Like i don't know that they're hitting like tippy top. Like i would reset my whole franchise for maybe like. I don't know. I don't know how much they would like. Mobilize me to give up. But i guess if if those picks that you were talking about if i wanted to just bundle a bunch of those that i'm sure aren't going to really be you know context changing kind of picks for me i would. I would consider kicking the tires on it for. If i'm okay. See i guess you just start thinking about what. What do they have this really valuable. That would really move the needle i mean. Would you rather have cade or would you rather have shay like can compare like shea against these. Those could that be off. yeah i guess question. Que poco the new big three. I think going door to door door before. If james harden is worth seven first-round picks. Why shouldn't komo worth four right. Just half as much. If paul george six i trump picks then three to four picks to me seems not unreasonable for top two prospect. This happens football sometimes where we think we know who won two is in the draft really starts at three and you saw this shareware The niners paid a pretty premium price to move up to three and then taken trae lance. Who is the third quarterback taken. But i do wonder. I think it's gonna go cunningham and then green and now cleveland set the clock at three and i do think a lot of people are going to make a run at that pick cleveland. They don't really know what their team is. I don't think they have specific direction. And if you could overwhelm them with pigs we'll see so here's do charts because we mentioned this. I'm a little worried about mobile being represented by wasserman and the whole detroit piece of is aren't telling us to be there. I don't know if they're happy with potentially going to the pistons whereas cape cunningham's like i want be piston. I'm down. i just watched the bad boys thirty for thirty three. Take me. i'm ready to go. So i think i'm going to be a coward and i'm gonna take cunningham. Also it's going to be way more fun to have moby Continue to go all right. We are going to take a quick break and then houston rockets. Number two simplisafe is an award-winning home. Security system so you know it's engineered with the latest technology. Want to keep your family safe. But what really set simplisafe partisans people. Highly transparency experts..
"jalen slugs" Discussed on Chad Ford's NBA Big Board
"Came back as a junior to really dominate year. obviously can rebound block shots. You know offensively. There's some really intrigued their questions. About how foot speed a little bit about how he's going to be able to defend on the perimeter switch defender what do you think about his mba prospect You know i i. I happen to like him. I haven't like now one other piece of information between his freshman and sophomore year. He suffered a serious injury so a sophomore year was up and down because he really never got back into the groove and this year he did Seven feet to forty twenty one years old What i love about him in a league again with role players. He's a rebound shot. Blogger rim to rim runner offensively. Not bad at. He uses both hands around the basket interesting about him for a kid to forty is. He's got to improve his lower body strength like he gets pushed off a little bit too easy for me but if you're looking at a big kid to develop in a second round You know great up about what i've been told really good kid. He's not horrible offensively. I think there's room for him to improve second round guy you grab him and you work with them. You g. league whatever but if you could get a seven foot two hundred forty pound kid who has that ability to block shots and rebound like Like this kid you grab him. I like him. I'm a fan of his in the second round jolie i-i-i out of gonzaga who gonzaga fans you know when you have corey kiss berg. Who's going to be a first round pick maybe lottery pick Right at jalen slugs going to be a top five pick in the draft. You know you can kind of get lost in the shuffle. A little bit. He had a really productive. Season comes out of france really productive season for gonzaga. Where do you see him in the nba. Second round I can remember when he arrived at gonzaga's a freshman house up there watching practice. And i swear to you mark few said. I don't think this kiddo ever play for us. He had such a great rep coming in. He was a two time all under sixteen under eighteen player in europe and they thought they swung and missed on him remember. He's a fourth year junior at redshirt year. So he's ready to leave and start his career. I like him. he's a three and d guy. I wish he was a little more physically built. He's a little bit more slight but at six foot five with his pedigree. His shooting ability is defensive ability. You know i. I haven't down here a bike. I like him as a roster spot guy to start his career. I like him making a team. And be an up and down with a g. league franchise but a lot to like about it because he could be a guy. Someday we're gonna end and go to the exotic locale of canada. Where josh primo Who played his freshman year at. Alabama has really started to be a riser on draft boards. Right now he is an intriguing wing player. Who can shoot basketball good athlete. You know took a while for him to get it going at alabama. But he's young. And we were talking about brand boston and zaire williams and all these young prospects didn't necessarily show what we expected them to prima seems to be getting some buzz as maybe even cracking the late first round or early second round. What do you think of his mba to like about him. I just watched as landscape of its career against again. Ucla again did not have his best game. But the interesting thing about josh. Primo is he went to a team of alabama this year. That had a lot of veteran players a lot of veteran wings. You think john. Petty herbert jones guys like that. And what. I love about josh. This is the example. I'll give you with josh. You're kansas city guy at one point in your life. Think of the kid at overland park. Let's go. Let's go bit bishop as uk the catholic school in kansas city. The baseball pitcher who throws ninety eight and he signs a scholarship wetter with arkansas and all of a sudden a team major league draft him in the first round. that kids. Not gonna arkansas for major leagues because of money. Josh primo is one of those kids if you draft him in the late first round or somewhere in a second round. You're getting a long term prospect. Who could be a really good player. He can really score. Ted he could shoot it. He's athletic. he's got size. He can really score the absolute potential overproduction guy. You're looking josh. Primo three years down the road at twenty one or twenty two. And you've got a six foot six two hundred fifteen pound to guard. Who can really score. So there's a lot to like about josh. Because he can put the ball in the basket. He's friend for shila. Just crushed this podcast. I mean if you don't think this guy is prepared. I mean every single guy just absolutely crushed it really appreciate all the insight friend We can follow your work at espn You also got a podcast. Right world of basketball is that right.

Katie Barnes on College Basketball BFFs Jalen Suggs and Paige Bueckers
"Katie. Is to have you back on the show. Thanks for having me so. I'm talking to you because you have the story of the kind of blew my mind and i say that because if there's one player in the men's college basketball tournament i would advise people to know about it would be jalen suggs. These star of the number one overall seed gonzaga bulldogs. He's a freshman. They open their tournament. Tomorrow heavily favored. He's going to be the face of this whole thing in the women's tournament the one name i'd advise people to know about would be page. Bekker's their star freshman the star of the yukon. Huskies who are also a one c and opening their tournament. Sunday against high point. They are the two faces of the game right now. They will be the two faces of the month of march. And what. I didn't know until i read your story. Katie is that they grew up twenty miles away from each other in minnesota and they've been friends since elementary school. How did you discover that page. Bekker's jalen subs. Were this close. I had pursued a tip from my editor. That was a video of the two of them playing rock paper scissors when they were seniors in high school. I had written about page before. So i just asked her. It was like. Are you actually friends with jalen suggs. And she said that she was shocking that to kids from the midwest who live pretty close to each other who both played basketball of course they would know each other. Of course they would be friendly. That wasn't surprising. But as i reported the story and i found out just how deep these routes go that to me was. What made this really special. Yeah you came into the story. I know having reported a lot about page. Bekker's you got to know jalen suggs. It sounds like in the course of doing this along with family members of each of them. How difficult was it to get everybody on the record to talk to you about the specific relationship. Everyone was really excited to talk about this relationship. These two are really good friends.

College Basketballs Uncertain Return to the Court
"I on thursday. Tupper beat six rate. Kansas ninety awesome performance and then on friday afternoon mark to the gonzaga coach. Confirm that the zags beat auburn on friday morning. Nine hundred sixty seven after a player believed to be julian straw. They're tested positive for covid. Nineteen so norlander. We're gonna get into next credible opening week on the court second. But let's start here where you surprise in an auburn still played on friday after a gonzaga player test positive. I was surprised because my opinion is that if other teams and i'm not saying all other teams but many other teams were in that situation. The game would not have been played in my opinion. If gonzaga ran into the issues it ran into and it was playing in belleville. gonzaga would not have played. It's game on friday. Gonzaga might not have even played a game against kansas or fill in the other opponent again. If you put it in. And i'm i'm speaking from what i'm seeing here and the protocols and everything that goes into place to even holding this in the state of connecticut okay. Gonzaga had a member of its travel party test positive on thursday gonzaga took two different planes to the event specific and has taken two different buses. It's it's doing specifically to guard against this. But obviously there is no full on guarding against this so we played kansas. And we'll get but then you know at least one player as positive another believed to be The players roommate is kept out as a precautionary reason. And the game goes off because and you can speak to a gp. Frankly we'll we'll get to virginia san francisco the minute but i was i was. I was watching that game. So i didn't hear fuse press conference. I've seen some of what he said. They're the relying on the florida health officials as being the ones that were to clear it and the health officials down there made that determination and it might wind up that that determination is going to be okay in the end. But i've received four text messages from coaches to heads to assistance. All of them basically asking why in the hell is gonzaga in auburn. Being allowed to play right now one of them saying if this was us there is no shot in hell that we would have been able to play and so this this is certainly captured. A little bit of attention around the college basketball world understandably so gonzaga's looked awesome. But you can make an easy argument that it that it should not have a have played the game. What are your thoughts. And then what can you share for the listeners. That might not have seen a about what few said in his postgame. Zoom press conference. Okay so mark was clearly asked about it and he said he kept it very simple. He's did we followed turns guidelines not we tournament guidelines were were in place and established. We had this positive test. And then we follow the guidelines and then the florida health officials came in and they contact tracing how they contact tracing. They told us we were okay. We were cleared to play and we play. He kept it. He didn't really expand anymore than that but listen. They didn't do anything illegal. They possibly did something irresponsible but didn't do anything illegal. They didn't act in defiance of the tournament or florida. Health officials noted that florida as a state hasn't taken covid nineteen that seriously to begin with. So what florida. Health officials were okay. Where quite clearly would be the same thing that said california. Health officials are okay. Wis lucky if they wanted to play the game. They're lucky they were in florida as opposed to to somewhere else. And you're exactly right. It's bubble ville or in south dakota. I don't believe this game would have been played. Wichita state got sent home from south dakota because they had maybe a couple of people in the travel and party test positive. They were like okay. Get outta here. You're not playing today. you're not playing tomorrow. you're not playing it off. So i don't know that this game would have been played if it were a tournament. Where you're at or in south dakota but because this was sort of a thing they put together in fort myers as long. Auburn was cool to play and gonzaga wanted to play. they were allowed to pluck. I though was surprised that the game went off. Because i mean we've seen baseball teams. Get shut down over one positive test during the major league baseball season the world series if it would have if the dodgers did not win the game justin turner had to be removed because they got a positive test back of the game so they take justin turner around. They complete that game. The understanding was that game. Seven of the world series would not have been the following night. They would not have played until everybody can test test test for a few days and they make sure it's safe to play and so yes. I was surprised that they played the game. And hopefully nothing comes from it that it doesn't end up being a quote unquote superspreader of it. Because if we an outbreak now at gonzaga because by the way gonzaga tweet video from the locker room after the victory over kansas and they're all celebrating no mask jewish authors in front of mark. Few right in the middle of the celebration. He is believed to be the one who test positive. So hopefully nothing comes of this but if we have a subsequent outbreak at gonzaga or subsequent at auburn gonzaga is going to become the biggest story in college basketball. And it's not going to be a sports story anymore. It won't be because jalen suggs looks. Incredible it'll be because they knew they positive test in their locker room and they played less than twenty four hours putting their players at risk and the auburn players at risk. I hope it doesn't come to that. But if it comes to that this becomes a bigger story than just to college basketball story. It becomes something that's on. Cbs evening news. Yeah we'll wait and see if that does happen. I mean auburn's gotta be you know held equally responsible and all of this because it opted to play the game regardless you know there was no self imposed penalty here. Handed down by bruce pearl. That was not in play on friday and so inherently like. You know the chances. Go up that you're going to potentially be infected. We don't know but it's clearly out there. I mean there are. There are no shortage of schools and athletic directors coaches. Just straight up would not play the game. So we'll wait arizona. State would not play baylor because the baylor coach tested positive. Not even a player who was who was gonna who was on the court with other players twenty four hours earlier right and that came from that even came from above. Bobby's hurley's bobby hurley's had which is the case in a lot of these instances but frankly what gonzaga auburn decided to do it. Just flies in the face of convention in college sports in professional sports that we've seen and we'll will you know we're recording this on friday afternoon. We'll wait and see what's going to happen here. Gonzaga's got some high profile games ahead and we're really enough one of them's blade baylor like if there's if there's one team that's actually going to be good with this like it's baylor. They might just play the game regardless. But we'll wait and see if either of these teams are now forced because if it gets another positive one after that like they have no choice. They're going to have to shut down for two weeks and then ask themselves if playing against auburn was really worth it you know. Was it worth it. Because now you're gonna lose these other games
