Benji Burke, Trey Burke’s father, joins us on this edition of the Salt City Hoops Saturday Show. We talk about how Trey came to be an NBA player, and what following his fame has been like as a father. We also talk about his dual role as an agent and father: do the two roles ever come into conflict? What kind of advice does he give Trey before and after games? Very interesting interview. Then, we have Clint Johnson, Salt City Hoops writer, on the show to give us an update on the prospects in the 2014 NBA Draft. Is Wiggins underperforming? How good will Jabari Parker be, and what position will he play in the NBA? Who are the NBA comps of the top 5 prospects? We also talk Aaron Gordon, Marcus Smart, and others. All that and more on this week’s Salt City Hoops Saturday Show!
