Welcome to the New Salt City Hoops Podcast! This podcast is the first of many to come recorded at the ESPN700 studios, as announced earlier this month.
In this episode, we focus on the #5 draft pick. Ben Dowsett explains collaborator Layne Vashro’s models to us, and reveals his choice for the #5 pick. We break Noah Vonleh down… can he become Chris Bosh? How good will he be right away? Then, we have SCH writer Denim Millward on the program, explaining his plan to have the Jazz be a winning team next year. Could the Jazz acquire Brook Lopez? How good could the Jazz be next season? Then, we have Jacob Frankel of Hickory High and ESPN Truehoop join us to talk about his draft projection model. What do the numbers say the Jazz should do at #5? Finally, we introduce our new weekly segment: the Crazy Trade Idea of the Week. Is our package good enough for Milwaukee to consider dropping down from the #2 spot? All that and more on this week’s podcast!
