The top two slots in the NBA Draft are all but locked in — Karl Anthony Towns will go to the Timberwolves at No. 1 and Jahlil Okafor will go to the Lakers at No. 2. Anything you hear different is spin and smoke.
At No. 3 the draft gets interesting. Does Philadelphia take D’Angelo Russell? Kristaps Porzingis? Do they trade out? And what should the Knicks do at No. 4?
In this podcast we asked PBT’s resident draft expert Ed Isaacson what he would do if he were Phil Jackson and Okafor, Towns and Russell were off the board — and he said take Justise Winslow out of Duke.
We get into some detail breaking down the draft in this podcast, with Isaacson — of NBA Draft Blog and Rotoworld — answering the questions of PBT’s Kurt Helin and NBCSports’ Dominic Ridgard. There is love for Bobby Portis, questions about Robert Upshaw, talk about what to expect from Porzingis and Mario Hezonja, plus talk of Emmanuel Mudiay adventure in China. Plus much more.
Spend an hour with us and you will be better prepped for the draft. Promise.
