In episode No. 27 of our “In The Paint Show,“ hosts Ronnie Flores and Devin Ugland go in hard on the much talked-about, blockbuster NBA trade that finally got done, sending Anthony Davis to the Los Angeles Lakers and sending Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, and an array of draft picks, including this year’s No. 4 overall, to the New Orleans Pelicans. Speaking of New Orleans, who will the Lakers be drafting for them at No. 4? Is there a team looking to cut a deal with the Pelicans? We break down the upcoming NBA Draft (June 20) with special guest, NBA Draft Insider Rashad Phillips of Sports Talk 2319.
Who are some of the candidates to go No. 4 in this top heavy NBA Draft? Who does Phillips think will pan out in the lottery after the “Big Three” of Zion Williamson, Ja Morant and R.J. Barrett? Who are some of the sleepers that Phillips likes in the second round? We chop it up with Phillips and the fellas give their take on the draft as well!
With the blockbuster trade and how it affects the upcoming NBA Draft, we barely have time to get into the Toronto Raptors capturing the franchise’s first NBA title! What does Toronto’s victory mean for the NBA off-season and how it relates to the big trade and upcoming free agency? Will two-time NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard stay in Toronto long-term? How will the Lakers fare next season? What is their championship window?
The fellas go over plenty of items as it relates to the NBA and Ron recaps and breaks down the 2019 NBPA Top 100 Camp that took place last week in Virginia.
