"I live in Brooklyn I lived in Texas thinking about Mcmahon lived in Dallas to collective. Podcast we talk about the a today. We have got a show that does not talk about Michael Jordan. We have plenty of all swear but Something happened in the NBA. At the end of last week that Just was amazing. I thought was fascinating. And I've got the experts on here to talk about it joining us from Brooklyn New York. Is Jonathan Cavani? Our draft and player expert. There may not be a A guy in the world who knows more about your national players Than Johnson Cavani. Hello how are you? I'm doing great? How are you great? Thanks and joining us from Florida. Is Our front office insider Bobby Marks. Hi Bobby Brian. Jonathan how are you doing? Well thanks for having me guys so I was just fascinated by the reporting that you did at the end of the week on Jalen Green for this deal that he constructed with the G. League which we're going to go over in a minute but first off Jonathan. I don't really know much about Jalen Green. Could you educate us on? What type of player? He is what his background is like. And why people are excited about him. Well he's Zach Levine type athlete. And he has those type of scoring instincts but he's a much better player at the same stage at the same age. Then Levine was so you could argue that. It's upside is higher. I don't like to you know if you are an outcome of being Zach Levine. Is really really good so. I think that's enough for me but some people might be offended by that comparison. I wouldn't think domino but that's kind of the world. I live in a world of it. Listrik expectations as you know But FREAK ATHLETE IMPROVING. Jump shot as one in early everywhere. He's been three time gold medalist Already at the at the age of eighteen which very few guys can say as really improved as a defender as a playmaker. His ball handling is his passing gas. Shot Selection and decision make knows the things that are still evolving like a lot of kids who are teenagers but his upside is through the roof and he's really hard worker and you know he's I mean he's he's done everything you'd expect in a lot of people have a as a number one player in the class. We have number two behind Kate Cunningham Just I think that says more about cutting him. It does about Jalen Green but this is a very exciting class. We have coming up which is a big sigh of relief for us after this Hannah underwhelming group that we were going through right now and we might not never get rid of it this day. At this point we'll talk about that in a minute Fresno but I assume he's you know he's played all over whereas where did he finish high school at say he goes? He's just graduating from prolific prepped in Napa That is cool. It's only been around for a couple years. But they really established himself as a national powerhouse. Where Josh Jackson? Also finished off his high school career and It's run by a guy named Jeremy. Recite who is a pretty well known trainer? He works with a lot of NBA players and Very heavy on on Skill Development. But also they play a national schedule and so he he wanted to be challenges why he moved from. Fresno to NAPA and You know he we got to see him everywhere and they thought on the grind session which is one of the better circuits rice cool players and Usa Basketball Hoop Classic. So he's he's ready. Made the rounds prolific prep in Napa California. That sounds like a pretty good place to go school. I don't know if it is but it sounds it's a good sales pitch on the name and location so all right someone just briefly. Go over the Deel and you talked about it on the world's pod But this is what blew me away so please correct me if I'm wrong here Because I'm I've just really been learning about it and I've had some conversations with people just because I was blown away. He in my view. He had four options for next year. He could have gone to college which I believe he has said he would have chosen the University of Memphis so pretty crushing from Memphis. They James Wiseman for two games whatever it was three games and then they potentially had the top player one of the top players in this draft. He doesn't go he could've gone to Australia to play for the NBA. Where Lamelo Ball? Rj Hampton went This last year he could have gone to China which also had interests in in his services at. I assume a pretty good price or could have gone to the G. League to this pathway program where initially their strategy was you play in the G. League for a year when you're eighteen to your eighteenth year one thousand nine hundred and you can? If you're so selected you can get paid one hundred twenty five thousand dollars. Which was the premium more would be the highest paid guy that G. League But he didn't get that deal instead. He negotiated a deal. And Bobby I have to say you ever remember the NBA negotiating a contract with a player like this because they ended up having negotiate hard and he ended up getting incredible deal. Which I'm going to go second but this is so strange. His representation was negotiating essentially with Adam. Silver Wall you're right and it's it's funny as his representative is Aaron. Goodwin who has got Damian Lillard Mar Rosen? Has He also has Jalen Brown which makes me wonder only for endorsements though inclusion has in for for contract and he had Lebron durant when it makes me wonder. If there's a guy named kid named jalen white out there that Aaron Goodwin is also on Jalen Green. Scott Jalen sorry sorry. The here's the funny thing is that and I talked to Erin about about this The process I want to get behind the scenes a little bit on the process and my big question was like. Is there a tear structure right like is it like if you are ranked in the top three or top four ours? Is there a set number in you know as you guys know? Aaron errands a hard negotiator. And he said no he goes to the tier structure. Is If you have a good agent or not Erin is not afraid to sell for however. I'm going to put this to congratulate themselves on good deals but he has negotiated lots of good deals over his career. Yeah I mean and he got another one here and you can. You can go. Brian jumped into our or John. Jump into that contract. Because it's a it's a doozie man. It's basically it's the base pays is basically he feels like a whole Julie team. I mean considering G. League players make thirty five thousand and that can make up to eighty five. Eighty five thousand a sign if they're in with that team for sixty days. I mean it's a monster number that the League is invested in him in. They'll continue invest with that team. So here's my bobby. I think I think it's misleading to compare it to G. League player is because he really aside of the G. League structure. I would say it's more of like an NBA. It's the eighth NBA Academy. It's going to be based here in the US. It's one in done. Factory is what it is and they're going to surround them with NBA veterans. You know guys who are towards the tail end of their career that will provide leadership and guidance and fill out the team. It's they're not going to have twelve players and so it's important to have a role players as well and guys that could benefit from that spotlight. So you know. I think that was one of the things that people didn't really understand when they said what he signed the G. League. He's not he's going to be doing. He's GonNa play some games against Julie Competition. Ten to twelve games. What Cherie Fedora told me but also go and play? International Games. You know Tournament play against the NBA Academies. I mean they're still trying to figure this out honesty. They don't know exactly who they're gonNA play against. How many Games are saying twenty to twenty five and toto and so it'll be interesting how that plays out but I think that was one of the coins in the original announcement in October of twenty. Eighteen was flowing kid into a G. League team in He has no say with where he gets to go And you know what is the Incentive Structure For the coaching staff for the NBA team? That owns that team You know his teammates and so I think that this is a way to alleviate a lot of those concerns so how. How much did Do you know how much Lamelo Ball. Rj RJ Hampton. Do you know how much those guys got paid Australia last year? They will end up netting around five hundred thousand dollars after they get the extent of their. Because same thing. Would you agree? It's it's incentivized you know. He has to play certain amount of games. He has to make a certain amount appearances. Yes to conduct You know their life skills Part of the program so I think they looked at what happened in the NBA. And they said you know Lamelo Ball. His last game was November Thirtieth. Just as you know he had to triple doubles and then he had this mysterious foot injuries. Shut it down and didn't play another game the rest of the season. That was a big hit for the L. Total. Do you remember well. He played twelve regular season game. Five hundred thousand twelve games. He will end up five hundred. He hasn't gotten it yet. But yeah that's what he's GonNa end up making but he had to go to Australia to do it now. So this deal. They're creating They're they're creating a team. Yes it is going to be like an academy but at the same time there's going to be thirty year old men who are retired from the NBA. Who are going to be on this team. My correct in saying that Yeah that's something that they're trying to figure out to. Do you take players who are twenty seven twenty eight. Were still in their prime that you know that washed out of the NBA or trying to get back in or do you take guys like a Damien Wilkins. Who is thirty? Six thirty seven. Who is still a really good player but not really maybe a prospect anymore and maybe someone who wants to transition into a coaching staff in front office. Because you're going to be around. Mba executive search every single day. And so if you prove yourself in that setting I think it's a natural transition to move into a coaching staff show and it'll be interesting to see how that part of it plays out to. Yes so here's what I think that this maneuver was so incredible because I don't know if his leverage was as extensive as he was able to get because number one the Australian League is in danger one of their owners owners of the Sydney kings gave an interview to the Sydney Morning Herald where he said if they have to play without fans next year. The the the League may fault now that could be a middle of these negotiations with their players association and they asked him to take fifty percent pay cuts on the high end. And so I mean I think some of that I was. You know putting that out in a meeting if you guys. Don't take these cuts. We might believe Mike Foale. You might have nowhere to play next year. Andrew Bogut is is mulling retirement. He was hoping to play one more year to play in the Olympics. Mulling retiring because he doesn't know what the state of the League is going to be so that doesn't exactly sound like like. Oh I'm going to sign up there. Things going great right. Their borders are closed right now that he has nowhere to go. I mean is zero. Todd I think if he wanted to go to the N. B. L..

"Way if you didn't catch our Buddy Jonathan Goni Jonathan Cavani draft express is where you find him on social media he's one of our ESPN NBA draft insider and analysts and he's got not a big story on the front page of ESPN DOT com today about Lamelo Ball and how Lamelo ball could end up being the number one pick in the draft so make sure you stay tuned for that plus. I WanNa get it into Johnson. He's doing the draft stuff for years. I want to get into Taylor Horn Tucker with him. I want to get into with him and kind of cruises evolution since his days at Utah when Jonathan was scouting him and and commercial I wanNA talk to about Caruso because as much as we had some fun at the expense of Caruso with the whole Oh photoshop picture and him being tested in the League after that I wanna get into the nitty gritty on Caruso too so we'll do that all with John. Goni coming up in a little bit. We'll do Lamelo Caruso Kuzma and Taylor Horton Tucker so stick around for that. We're doing that a couple minutes but as I mentioned I want to get to McVeigh but the other thing I want to talk about real quick is I saw this trending yesterday. It was Jonah Hill is going to be part of one of the Batman movies and I think that's pretty awesome like first of all. Let's start there. second of all. I think I think that if you really think about the evolution of Jonah Hill man like if you would've told me the kid in super bad would be an all these awesome movies movies wolf of Wall Street right eventually Batman Flick Money Ball which was an Oscar nominated flick. I would've told you you're crazy but in in retrospect. I probably shouldn't feel that way because think about even guys like Tom. Hanks who's a two-time Oscar Award winning winning actor mean when I was a little kid and I'm going to date myself here. I might have been like five or six years old. One of the first things I ever remember seeing Tom. Tom Hanks on was a show called bosom buddies pretty sure he was on that show right yeah bosom buddies and you know he was in a bunch of bad movies. He wasn't a few good ones like big was a good movie but he was unlike Turner and Hooch which was a great movie for me as a kid. I loved it but I didn't expect the guy from Turner and Hooch Eugene Bosom Buddies and Joe versus the volcano tend up being a two time Oscar Award winner which again just goes to show you. You really never know with that stuff. You have no idea eh if any of these guys are ever going to be really good actors so don't clown people you see now that you may think make bad movies because at the end of the day they they may end up being Oscar Award winners and Tom Hanks and is the perfect example of that so but yeah Joan a hill. I Guess Penguin right if you were going to do a Batman in character with him unless they're going to create something. I'm not that familiar with but yeah I mean penguin. He makes perfect sense. You know Danny. devito is the only other guy it's played it at least on in a in a movie because Burgess Meredith the Guy who was mickey in the rocky movies played it on the TV. Show got got him. I remember a lot of stuff from when I was a little kid. Anyhow Sean mcvay laying down the law when it comes to uh-huh Todd Gurley and here's what happened so Lindsey theory. Our Buddy tweeted this out earlier. I think it was actually yesterday last night. I didn't see it to earlier today and it was about Sean McVeigh saying. Hey I don't care what people say about Todd Gurley. I am not load managing Todd Gurley. There's no load management commit program when it comes to Todd Gurley and Y'all need to understand that that is the case and just leave me damn alone about Todd Gurley and that's basically really what this is about this is he is tired about being asked about Todd Gurley his health his knee girlies clearly tired of it. I get it but but if there are reasons to ask those questions and let's face it was talking about it on the morning. Show the other day that girlie didn't like he had the pop necessarily that had previously and when he's not getting the amount of carries you thought that he'd get look at his last game forty three yards arts fourteen carries against the browns and those are things that at least lead you to ask those questions any good reporter is going to ask that and McVeigh's as response was. I have to do a better job being able to give him a chance to really get more into a rhythm what I've enabled him to do in these first couple games and look look you can sell that to me. All you want Sean. I'm buying it man. I'm buying it. Look I think Sean is I've said this outside of fellowship thing is the next best coach in the NFL and I think that the offense has been a bit lackluster to start the season and I think most of that is the offensive line the Interior of the office of line which is different and I think some of that is on girly and they're trying to kind of preserve him for when it matters and they've got a bunch of new toys. They've had some injuries you know on the offensive line we saw denby was thrown in there as outright. Gerald Everett. WHO's a very talented player was thrown into that mix. I just think that Sean is playing it. Cautious on offense a little bit and part of it is what we talked about with Kirk Morrison the other day the league kind of catches. It's up to you so there's there's all these things at play. I don't think it's one particular thing that's happening here but yeah man like let let's not get it twisted kind of like what I said with Kuzina a little while ago and Kuzma was trying to be funny and kind of Deny Mark Stein's report poured about his ankle and it turns out that mark is now doubling down and saying that Kuzina won't be ready to start training camp. I think some of this we've heard from Sean before when there were reports about about girly and maybe having knee arthritis or whatever we've heard this stuff before and it's that's what a good coach does. He puts it on himself. He doesn't put it on the player but as much as I love Sean. I respect Sean. I'm just not buying this stuff like I'm not but I don't blame. I don't blame him at all. I'm just not buying it. I coming up next Jonathan Giovanni Draft Express ESPN NBA draft insider and analysts will talk about Lamelo Ball. Maybe going number one. He just visited Lamelo Ball and Australia talked to a bunch scouts a bunch of team executives about we'll get into that we'll get into the evolution of the young. Lakers players like Kuzina Taylor Norton Tucker what to expect from Him Caruso etc all with Jonathan Davonte next stick around. We're back a couple of minutes here on E._S._p._N. L._A..

"Trading away TJ to clear, some salary and leader making deals to add veterans Dario. Saric. An Erin feigns now, Phoenix also drafted camp Johnson, anti Jerome. So do you feel the sun's draft night strategy was something, nothing or everything focusing on the draft pick? Cam Johnson because this is James Jones, real big. I move this first draft pick and it was like twenty picks higher than Jonathan Cavani for the projected him. And even his own college teammate. Wow, man. Wow, man jokes known basically as a guy who can shoot and shoot. Great. And not do everything else that great, which sounds to me a lot like James Jones. So this is going to everything at this is the hit awesome. If not bad nicknames champ. I love it. I think is everything. James old, former teammate of my like you said the champ. I think and I told you yesterday on the job, I'm I was real high on the guy Cal. I think he's, he's he has a major point and his Lee, and I thought he should have been lottery. You don't find shooters like he's the he's the issue in this drought. And I love the move by a choir. Oh, you socks from a from Minnesota. I think James Jones did a great job last night. And I think is everything shot out to champ, man. That was everything to me. That's right. I'm interested in them. Taking your Baynes who if you look at the Boston so defense of numbers this year when Aaron pains was hurt. Their defensive tempers were not good at when you're in Baynes was on the court. It was a no symbol, like almost crazy different. So I'm curious sort of, we're Boston's going from here and what he might bring to next. Next. The nine full reason he got tied to. So he got their basketball. I will you notice things like they're not the major stats. Live just. Well, thanks big difference. Let's talk about the wizards. They caught everyone off guard by grafting Louis hachi moron, number nine including where we your. Tomorrow the wizard still do not have GM apparently did not meet with or speak to Paci Maura before the draft later, some of the front office guys said we chatted with him like in the crowd at guns. Which is speaking to. But again, ROY says I didn't even know that they knew who I was. And now I've been drafted by them. Is it something nothing? Everything Kendrick inbetween is something in the reason it is some because I'm a fan of this guy..

"He works at place. I used to work, but I have always followed his site wack when I used to work there and do NBA draft stuff on radio there in some on sportscenter on TV. There's Jonathan Cavani joins us draft express is his that that's, that's the I used to go to that website, man. How long ago did you start at two thousand three I started when I started working there and I and that's and I, I always thought to myself, I could not. I don't know how people did my job, and this is like national sports radio or TV stuff before the internet. What was your background like what led you to being so inside and so into specifically the NBA draft? Well, it, it goes back to when I was really young. The Miami Heat came along in nineteen eighty nine I was seven years old. And I was obsessed with them every day, I would come home from school. I went to our the sun sentinel, and the Miami Herald IRA, winder men, and then I would sit you know, every night at seven o'clock and watch them play. And they were absolutely horrible. You know, back in the days of Ronnie cycling, Steve Smith. Glen Rice, Matt, Geiger, Keith Askins, who now works for the heat, Nike cout, every time I see him. And I just love watching them. And just kind of thinking, you know, how, how can these guys get better, you know, men who can they acquire where the college players their international players and so from very young age? I was always really into that side of things, you know, I'm short on athlete, Jewish guy. And I played a little bit in high school, but I was terrible. I never got off the. Bench. And so I, I knew very early on then if I wanted to work in basketball, it'd have to be, you know in this field. And so as a freshman in college started a website had absolutely no clue. What I was doing some say, I still don't but. Pretty early on. I, I realized that there's a niche there, people started reaching out to me, as if you know, my opinion mattered parents and be a teams agents media started getting, citing is a newspaper there was, I thought was insane. And so that kind of forced me to become very serious about this. And so, I started traveling, you know, going to different camps sleeping on people's couches, begging people to let me, you know, crash on their hotel room floors. I would go to Europe and, you know, stay at hostels and I you know, I treated it like a job and I was lucky enough to have some really amazing people that mentor me, guys, like David Thorpe, you know, the late rob years..

"I think I said this last time there's a long time between when Kyrie Irving last played and that, that June twentieth that date, there's a long time in between. We'll, we'll learn more about Al Horford opting interrupting out, they'll be some other things that happen. What do you intend to do? I think else going to have to I think he's going to have to take the thirty million. And here's why I think people are very, very interested in how Horford and they should be because he's one of those really those players that would help any team, but there's such a rich class. He has to wait people aren't going to go for health or for. I don't think not with kyri and Durant, and all the others. We don't mean to name all the free agency yet again out there. So I think I think. Yeah. Likes it here. I think he would like to stay here. And I think but again, I haven't talked to him or as agent Jason talked to recently. There's always the possibility that he could opt out with the intention to stay with us. I'm here shorter deal. Well, that's to me makes the most sense. And I think that's something he'd be amenable to doing. There's no bad blood here with Al Horford me of, of all the problems. The Celtics had Al Horford was not one of them. I mean he's only problem was available when he didn't play they suffer. So, so just real quick, the Lakers. There was a great moment for them. They had I think nine percent chance of getting into the top four, they hit they will they now have an asset that is tradeable or they have a guy that they can draft that will be nice prospect for them. I don't know if they can get somebody that can materially change them right away. I don't to be honest with you. We'd have to have Jonathan Cavani Mike Schmitz on here. I can't really speak on these guys. I mean, I watched Culver from Texas Tech play. I watched the Virginia kid play hunter. Ideal, but he saw garland play. Nobody saw lately played finding put I don't, I don't think about other than he went to Vanderbilt and hurt his knee, and then barely played, so. I just, I just don't know if it helps them for Anthony Davis, because whether the warriors whether the Lakers want to. Admit this or not Brandon Ingram. Unfortunately, his value has diminished because of the blood clot. And this is what people in this is what executives in the league, you're telling me, and whether that's true or not his agent may disagree. The Lakers may disagree in fact, may not even be true. He may end up being healthy the rest of his career his has diminished, and I and maybe a year from now, if he has real healthy year, and everything is fine that it'll be completely different. But. So it's not even the same offer that they were making before. So yes, they're the pick that they were offering has improved dramatically. But if you're the pelicans, you have the prime asset in this trait, even in this lottery, even if, if Lakers, pick had moved up to four and the pelicans didn't move up, and they were still sitting at eight. I think it was a different conversation, but because the pelicans also moved up and now have on. I think that, that jumping of the fourth pick has even less interest, especially if they can also trade for the number three pick, if they really wanted to and get, you know. A lot of people think is a better player and. Even that's even independent of the bad blood that exists between the organizations. Right. So let me ask you this question, though, because, you know, David pretty well, and I haven't weighed in with David yet, although I will like everybody else. I'm sure of this idea that they keep them. And wait till the February deadline. Try to give them some few months with Zion and see if it'll work..

"Those European players. Like we saw last year. Donny now strings drafted Dirk Nowitzki, and they built their franchise around him and they want championship. And I think that's what ROY gave him the confidence to go and grab Luca don't use. When other teams in the NBA were hesitating. People retiring me last year, we were super high contentious very time. He's the seventh or eighth best player in the draft. He's too slow too fat. You can't do this. You can't do that who you're gonna guard. And I mean, obviously that all went out to window the first moment that NBA preseason games tip. And so I think he honest is once in a million, I don't know forever. Going to see a player like honest. I mean, just this story just development that where he you know, he was a fifteen draft. But if he didn't play in that little obscure tournament Italy two weeks before the dry he might have been twenty nine player draft in. And so I I don't you know, we're ever going to see a situation like that before. But I hope we do because I'm hoping it'd be fun center for it. Why is it? So. Difficult to look at the euro players and try to figure out exactly what they will be over here. That's a great question. I don't personally understand. I mean, what Luca Danni just was doing the productivity being the best player in the Euroleague, which is in my mind, head and shoulders. Above college basketball. I didn't have any doubts about it. But I mean, you know, there's a comfort level in this county. College basketball. There's a bigger simple side. You know, what you're getting there? And I think had something to do with the fact that you know, he doesn't look the part. I mean, that's a big part of the town of simple, you say, well, he's a little you know, he's a little bit slow. He's a little bit. You know, like how how are you gonna fill out? I mean, he's he's a little bit fat. You know, like the thing that we're were saying time, I mean. Yeah. Look at probably have fifteen percent body fat. But he's he's the smartest basketball player that you'll find them. So it's brain just works on a different level and other people. And so, you know, I think that they over thought that one any part of it is just there's not a lot of players like look at times in the league. And you always hear well who is this guy. And I heard that about sign early nearby show who do you compare them to me? It's like what I don't come from anybody. He's he's his own guy. And he's doing things that have never been done before. And probably never will. Then. So you have to expand your mind a little bit. You have to you have to think outside of the boxes. And I think you know, there's sometimes there's a reason why those bad teams are tracking a top five. It's because they had terrible seasons because they made back decisions leading up to that point. And so that probably goes into that too. Sure seems like Zion. Go number one. And number two. Are you pretty convinced that they're both going to be great players Jonathan. I'm convinced on. I think the jury's out on John Moran. I love his talent level. I personally think ours. You should go number two. Okay. That's who I would take. If I were the grizzlies, you know, having watched RJ from a real young age. She's gonna things that he's done at the international level. I was in Cairo Egypt watching him tear apart are USA basketball team as a as a seventeen year old going up against nineteen year olds. And so, and that's I I love John Marin talent. But I I'm taking ferret. All right. Excellent. Jonathan we appreciate the time. And maybe we can catch up one more time right before the draft next month. We appreciate it. Sounds great. Thanks for having me Jonathan Cavani at draft express. He'd go RJ number two. The point guard with Mike Conley at this age. Don't they in Memphis? I I mean, I really think that if zion's lock number one, I think it's wide open after. Gye John looks great playing against level competition. They played against you know, then he played in tournament. And he looked good. Oh my God. He'd a triple double in them. What about imagine? If camera she's playing at. VC school. Yeah. Oh, how valid conference magin. If that was if you got a chance eastern, Illinois twice view. Yeah. What Cam reddish would do rose. Again this morning. I get up. It was saying how he thinks that RJ Barrett could be the best player in this class. Now that could be slightly ironic because I think Sylvia's made a great comp. RJ Barron might be Jalen rose. It's sort of in a way he might be looking at it thinking, that's me. And Jalen was good. I don't think Jalen was ever great. He was very good. Jalen was a very good basketball player. Never great in Jake Max's out at Jalen rose. Would you be disappointed? If that was your second or third overall pick probably, but I think there are a lot of similarities between those two and he was on again this morning saying that RJ could be the best player, but Jonathan in. Jaylen Arnold in that that people are still. Not convinced, but people still believe that RJ Barrett could end up being the best player out of all of them. Three one two three three two three seven seven six. That's the number. It's carbon in your co on ESPN thousand Manchester.

"Shell Pennzoil performance line. Jonathan phony who is going to break down everything we need to know about this upcoming iconic draft class so might as well get into it. We had a game for the ages. It's truly March. March madness is happening right now in Jonathan I know all eyes are on Duke. The trio how would you assess their performance so far in March? And what do you think these guys like were they potentially could be landing? I'm talking about RJ Zion. Williamson cameras. John showed exactly who he is today stepping up and making those big threes and taking over down the stretch when do growing needed him to, you know. Getting out that much more difficult win than anybody anticipated. I think you know, he's been the number one pick all season long and nothing changed in that regard. You know, RJ Barron. I thought with up and down a he ultimately happy the game winning basket on that offensive rebound off the free throw line, which may or may not have been a push off. But you know, wasn't didn't have a great game. Overall. I thought throw it to make shots like the whole Duke team and. Scott. You're gonna wanna see more from him in next weekend in in this week sixteen and potentially the eight and beyond. Kim show at the same. I thought he was total. No show the whole second half. She did make that huge three for pasta bounce with a minute forty three to go. That was big. But you know, he he's been up and down all season long and tonight with north different for him. Jonathan the the basketball world for people who didn't really watch college basketball, got got an up close view of John Moran. Up in Hartford in the win against Marquette and the loss against Florida state. I know we're we're probably what three months away from the draft right now. But when you when you look at him is they're starting to be some separation for him where he is right now at that number two slot comp- compared to RJ Barrett is maybe at three. It's a tough call. Honestly, I could go either way Stu I feel. I I do think if you if the draft for tonight, and you put a gun to my head. I would probably say Moran is a two right now. But I do think that. Who gets the pick? We'll have some say in it. You know, if if the hawks are there too with this using the trae young is having you know, what do they do that? It'd be a tough call it. Same thing. Maybe with the Cavs Colin sex has been great. And I know you don't when you're that high. You don't draft I need, but I do think it seeps into the back your head when it's close, and I do think that it's close RJ. I don't think we've seen the best of him. Here is of late. But you know, he did come into this year as a consensus number one guy and for him to follow the number three. I I don't think it's unanimous. And so I do think that there is some debate among the scouts that I talked to. But I would say that at this stage Moran has a slight edge at number two behind John. We are the NBA insiders. I'm here with Bobby marks. And we are pleased to be joined on the shell Pennzoil performance line by Jonathan Cavani who is giving us all the insight into the potential draftees upcoming NBA draft class. Now, Jonathan I know we talked the big names, da, Diane horse. Some other key players that we should keep our eyes on can also help their case playing well in March. Well, it was really fun to see some sun of UCF said coach Johnny talking's, his his Aubrey. Maybe the best game of his college career tonight, thirty five points that was awesome. That's what it's all about. I mean, he he's twenty four years old. So you have to temper the enthusiasm a little bit considering how young team wise and how much older than he is. And you know, if you look at the rest of season that performance learn outlier, but I do think it's going to raise some eyebrows. And an NBA teams are going to want it. A closer look at him. Bring him in for workouts? You know, for sure he'll he'll be a hot guy at port Smith. I'm a summer league. Invite and all that. So that's what's fun about March. I think taco fall helped himself a lot to, you know, seven foot six and the way he moves and the way he's finishes around the basket. The all time leader in percentage and. You know, he's not quite, you know, people want to say, he's a Senegalese Shawn Bradley, but I think he's better body than him. And you know, he moves on the better. He I came into tonight thinking, no chance taco fall. But I lost saying, hey, you know, like stranger things have happened. You know, can somebody get him into very Julie team, you know, and a two way contract work with him and try and make them more of a Senegalese Bogota Mariana vich, maybe who knows? Jonathan when you when you look at the NCAA tournament, and they know it's easy to kind of fall into the hype. We've seen players in the past. You know teams have drafted based on a strong performance. How do you value? Wait, what they do either this weekend here, or you know, the Sweet Sixteen going forward compared to kind of the whole body of work. Do you do we have to look at it as one one or two single games or do? We added a little more more into it. Because of the you know, the on a bigger stage right now. I think it varies depending on who you talk to. You'll see some teams you get up and leave the US altogether. This weekend. Fly to Europe. You know, they'll go scout international prospect because they just don't want to get caught up in that bubble of hype that surrounds torment. No, one guy like Aubrey talking today has an amazing performance. And all of a sudden he's a lottery pick. No. I mean, that's that's obvious. It's not the way that it works. But I do think that there's some value to the tournament for guys. This is the best competition after face all season, for example, Gonzaga. We haven't seen them play meaningful games, you know, since the Maui invitational. Or, you know, Tennessee, North Carolina games that they played in December. And so I do think that there match up next weekend against Florida state is going to be very impactful for their first round prospect, Brandon Clark Ryuhachi more. I personally I like seeing how guys grow over the course of the season, they evolved, and you know, which guys want the ball late in games. I do think that that matters to a degree. But. I I agree with what you're saying. Is that you can't throw out the entire body of work based on a one or two games sample size. And so you have to just kind of add this to what we already have been way. You know? However, you wanna weigh I for me, it it shouldn't mean something Jonathan thank you so much for joining us. I know it seems like college basketball is winding down. But that means things are really speeding up because this is the pressure time for you as you give us all the inside on Jackie's. Thanks for having me guys. This is great. So happy to have Jonathan Cavani. And it's interesting because he brings up some things how tournaments can help you, and it can sort of legitimize talent. Now, bobby? I know this is something that, you know, like when you see these prospects in March is that change your idea of what they have done the entire season. No. I mean, I think you could take what they've done. What they've done in March. You know, to you know, certainly, if you have if you are RJ Barrett or some of these other players, and you stand out. Yeah. I mean the tournament does help. But I think we've seen plenty of players in the past. I think I think Sacramento or drafted Malka Richardson based on a strong performance when he was at Syracuse in the NCAA tournament. So I think I think you have to take the whole body of work into account. I think you can't get caught up in the NCA hype here, and and the good teams have from high school to either one or two years. They've got enough scouting reports that it's not just going to be about one game. And lots of beauty is Diane because I feel like he can rarely give you a lot of confidence and open some people say, I don't know about his skills at this or that. But this man next level, he has some talented. So let's lean into this Kenneth team like the Knicks turnaround their fortunes in this draft will explore that next on MBA insiders on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Stay with.

"Measures and. Ciro your title. Yeah. None none. So a lot of people like to talk. So that is the king of shutting things down. No, one has more incentive to say, no one wants things shut down. Then coach Kaye because he knows that you know, if that UNC game was any indicator despite how great they played against Syracuse that UNC gave you need dying out there because he is white probably about twenty five percent of their scoring. I think both he and RG bear combined for like forty two forty three percent of Duke scoring and the crazy stat there also is that no team has won a national championship. When those two players have amount to players amounted for that much scoring. So we'll see if they'll be able to balance the ball with Zion being out and hopefully do confined find the perimeter shooting because that was so a glaring weakness, but we all know coach K's going to defend his own and say that y'all. You know, we've not had any shutdown talk. Because clearly that's not how we probably operate. Here. Duke were in the business of winning championships. But, you know, somewhat not really Dan talk about things down is a guy who knows what it's like to have something shutdown forcibly DeMarcus cousins. College basketball. Become. Ready for the next. Norwood obviously better. Enjoy the moment you enjoy the experience. Risk of all he gets rose smell. So this is the real struggle guys because you guys can understand why a player of zion's caliber should be given a pass. Right. He should be allowed to kind of shut it down. If you wanted to because what he's jeopardizing is not only life changing money, but it's probably generational changing money. He's going to be the face of a franchise. He is going to be that the the needle that moves like the person that moves the needle and stuff like that. So I understand. But at the same time you hear coach K so like to to pair those two sounds. It's really interesting because you want to also have this amazing college experience in Zion himself was saying, hey, guys, and they ran the sound literally right before the Duke UNC game. Hey, guys, if I had a choice to either go to college or go to the NBA, I would still go to college and still go to Duke because I want that experience to me, it's just extremely hard to con con. Confront that. You know, and for me, I I have so much respect for his eye on because if he does come back and play he's proving that you know, what I care about ball. And maybe that will help him in the future. Think about him being healthy having an NCAA title ride and letting that be the legend that carries them through the NBA, Bobby. Well, you're right. And I think you know, Jonathan Cavani who does all our draft. Coverage was on with with Adrian Wootton asking their on this podcast. And and kinda really just hit it on the head as far as in the first couple of minutes. Really like the Duke has given this player of the platform to be able to accomplish a lot of things that maybe he wouldn't have been able to had he had he been a one and done. Here are actually come out after the rules allowing the come out of out of high school here. And I think I think it's it's going back to it's going to be a fascinating discussion over the next weeks or months here as far as if there's a compromise as far as allowing high school players into. You know into the NBA. I think the system is set up a lot better than it was back in the ninety s when we saw Kobe and meal we hear about all the good success stories, Koby Garnett and Tracy McGrady. But there are a lot of failures. Young into e you know, there were no had declared. And we saw that we see the list every may that you, you know, who go into Neverland we never hear from them again. And I think I think the system is set up better right now. But I think if it comes to the point where the players sociation has to give up something of significance. I don't know if they're willing to go down that road there. Yeah. And that's the thing. What does the P A ultimately want and right now, I think you're right Bobby this system is better. But for me to to look at a guy like Zion. There's so much more than the basketball because everything he is going to offer an NBA team. A city is going to be bigger than basketball. It's it's a ten million dollars shoot. He'll which is about what Forbes suggested his his rookie year. Would you know, which generate it's it's the jersey sales. It's the buzzer around the city imagine if he were to New York, so he he's not only thinking about. This year and next year. But he's thinking about like, you said today generational wealth because he could be legitimately a multi hundred million dollar type of player and the kind of guy that can be transcendent of the game. And so when I look at Zion. There's so much pressure on him to make the right decision. Not only for him. But for his family because you know. I have not seen this kind of player come through college. And really, you know, when you think about LeBron who did not go to college. I don't know if we've seen a more exciting player, enter the NBA. Yeah. I agree. And I think it's zion's prerogative. Like he's going to talk to a circle his family was at the game. You know, obviously, he's going to be able to chat with them and say, hey, guys. This is what I want to do on a play, and they're gonna make sure he's healthy. And I think everything will be fine. But the conversation around has been truly powerful, and I do like the NBA for saying, hey, we actually reached out to the union to see if this can happen. So maybe guys like Cihan of you know, that type of talent going into their first freshman year per se, maybe they don't want to go to college. Now, you can actually have a pipeline especially with the G league for them to be successful right now. I'm sure because Mahershala Ali just one. Okay. So I'm trying to. Why did you ruin it for me? I don't care. I'm sorry. Guys. Wait, you have you have? Pause because I'm trying to do a show. Oh, right. The Oscars on ABC. Are you know, really killing it right now, I'm distracted. But guess what? I'll get back on focus because we have Steve Novak joining us right here. After the break. We're the NBA insider stay with us. This.

"He's really bona five all star candidate, but they went on that run. Teams go on like real long runs. You wonder if that's the thing if that's real zip. So that'd be interesting to see the reason because that ROY. Coincided with the return of vertigo bear. So you know, it's Rudy, Gobert Donovan Mitchell team. So those those two pillars continue to go. But you're right. It's still the west and they're not surprising anyone this year and they'll Donovan has to come with more in his back because people seeing Ben Simmons. You got to take that next step. So he's he's going to be key in their electric personality. So you know, so people notice and and like this, all needs that great. All wanna know is how many people in Salt Lake are gonna come with us by demand suit that he wanted the. Anywhere Miami, they'd all be wearing your. That's one about late. Lastly, my hometown Chicago Bulls, they're over unders Lissette twenty seven and a half. Look, they added divide Parker harder, junior looking nice. So I'm gonna take this one not to sound like a Homer, but this is an easy over last year. Clearly a rebuilding year. I mean, they won twenty seven games last year and they were taking. So Chris done, he missed thirty games, Zach, LeVine, miss almost sixty games even Laurie marketed miss fourteen game. So from those two rookies in Wendell and Chandler Hutchison, they'll see some time Jabari Parker massive chip on his shoulder. There's a lot of guys with so much to prove netting. They're going to play every single game hard. So when teams come in Chicago rest there, guys that have been sold sold. Okay. So I know what you're like. Lauri Markkanen did not get nearly enough credit for how good of a rookie season he had. I got to see him live. I got to meet him and that guy is going to be a really good player in this league for a long time to come. And I like the young players like adding Julia Parker. That's a very good addition in terms of like high, low risk, high reward. If he cans out, I really liked the team. I really like what the bulls done and let me do my monologue. Did show. I was playing congas finest right there, but like I've. So I think that's pretty low for the bulls and plus they don't really have as much incentive to tank again this year. So you know, I'll just have one note about the bulls and they're tanking and how they got there at least honest tankers, right? They call the league and acknowledged that this is what was happening and the league was like, you're not supposed to talk about it, right, right. Most people just like lie and say that we won't. Permission. Good. They're honest hankers Sukagaw bulls can be the next coming. The Boston Celtics. I like I, like I like their youth versatile from every position I'm I'm heavily. So on boy park the if he can stay healthy. Sabari has warned quickest ups in the NBA for his size. And I think that's gonna benefit him when you have a lot of other athletic dies, who can play make and get easy because I agree with you on Martin if it wasn't for Jason Tatum is Mitchell. He will be he will get more pub-, but that's often top to bottom. You know what? Stacey, king Saracho take all. The whole replace the viewer. Oh, okay. Okay. We'll see that's on the bulls coming up our draft expert. Jonathan Cavani joins us to break a little news guys plus breakdown this class of rookies and the breakdown of prospect for next year's draft in Zion. Williamson people locked right here on the job..

"Nba is going to do you think if you get picked to go to memphis not that i'm saying that what happened at whatever four if you if he goes to five to dallas you'd think down nine to new york oh my god imagine well or if he goes eight if somehow miraculously lebron stays in cleveland and trae young as the piece that they believe can actually help them help lebron how he's not there was pressure in oklahoma son none i mean and the funny thing is we can't even agree that he's the bigger risk i'll go back to jonathan cavani who's one of the smart minds we have you're covering the espn nba draft last night on freddie and fitz simons he broke down that he thinks michael porter is a bigger risk on thinking porter because of the medical situation real question marks about you know you're gonna play summer league this need to sit out this upcoming season you know is that the right move for his health long term in terms of rebuilding his body make sure he's perfectly align and setting him up long term to be successful not all that you know similar to what we saw with philadelphia joel embiid after they drafted him you know trae young i don't know how much risk there is because know we know what his game is we know that he's struggled defensively and any team that is dressing it aston know that and they have to know that this guy needs to green light you'd better give him the ball and let him do what he does which is you know make niger you sit there and think about it he's questioning the basketball part of this he's questioning multiple redshirt years i mean if you're sitting in there and that's part of what makes this nba draft process so much different man if you're sitting there with the top ten pick your still rolling the dice imagine that in the nfl i know that draft picks fail all the time they'll have to blow me up on twitter to remind me of that but we can't agree that there's a consensus if you are picking in the top ten you are going to be chastised and you're going to be fired as a gm right if you can't nail your draft picks in the nfl and the nba it's like well you know i mean i don't know miles bridges might be good or you know maybe they want him or maybe they'll just trade out of the draft altogether i mean that's where we have two different pool though when you look at the nfl he's here pool there's less players in the nba there's less players in college basketball to go through it should be an easier rule find you win oh man as a married man can we cut that like i don't know the last time i've i've this is maybe fine you win on like repeat i will i'd like to thank my life coach unlike the net god for making this moment possible in all of the great people at espn and my shoe sponsor step back in the day the sixers had the prophet right how many teams right now can afford to adopt the process will you looking at the the teams that are in the top kgo eight six there is no process in cleveland if lebron stays are you right right i mean how many how many people genuinely willing to trust the sons or the kings i mean that that's another piece of this that continues to drive me crazy the sons the kings are there atlanta memphis like they're they're bad basketball teams year in not not this year they're bad basketball games memphis i keep coming back to memphis was a bad basketball team but don't you think memphis was also really beaten up mir like they're getting older but i think like let's say moba mba ends up in in memphis and everyone's healthy which the big if but if you like that sort of maybe in the top four maybe where i'd go that's crazy i mean i i look at teams like dallas on i think that always think dallas is going to be good i would hope i fell to five perhaps right but but i mean i'm alarmed when you look up on the board the bulls feels like.

"And then and then they had other hits taj gibson jimmy jimmy butler and that's what you're maybe they rediscovered some of this would allow remarketing now maybe they're getting back to what what was good now there's certainly been some busted but with all all teams there are the tyrus thomas pasta as big of a bust as you can get you take him and then you you trade lamarcus aldridge for tyrus thomas undrafted night i think there's there's a couple of things to be excited about the you're going to get a really good player you should get a really good player at seven you may be able to wheel and deal and get another top fifteen pick if in fact you can take a bad contract maybe you can package a couple of those picks if you get one and move up further been there's a lot to be excited about if you're a bulls fan i asked you at the break again a couple of weeks ago i was a big fan of taking a shot at michael porter jr if he was still there at seven you've had different people say different things between then and now and i was asking you had michael porter jr not gotten hurt because before all of that he was considered to be in very very early the number one pick he was a consensus number one right before the season started thing if he hadn't gotten hurt if you were around the program that a kid played and you know usually get people around those players to sell that you which is understandable but jonathan davonte who is our guide espn has been doing all the mock draft he's been doing all the scouting him kevin schmitz who we're going to try and get onto they do really good work online and they're going to be a part of the espn draft coverage poppy marks kevin schmitz who else there was a third person today that i saw as well but that's neither here nor there let me play you the cut about wendel carter from jonathan cavani from earlier today they're getting an absolute stud on both ends of the court.
