Episode Info

Episode Info:

Jonathan Tjarks of The Ringer joins the show for what has become a summer tradition, recapping the Suns’ offseason and predicting what is to come for the team’s young core.

Starting with the draft, we discuss why Tjarks was high on Cam Johnson and why the pick makes sense as a way to maximize Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton, as well as reverse course from the low-floor draft picks of the Ryan McDonough era. We also touch on the Ty Jerome pick and what he has to do to become an NBA starter.

Then, thoughts on the Ricky Rubio signing, why point guards got overpaid this summer, and how Booker’s game will change alongside a traditional playmaker.

We close the show with analysis of the Western Conference as a whole, including how the bottom of the West got bigger, the burgeoning young Grizzlies, and why shooting is only getting more important in the NBA today.
