ON DEMAND: NBA Draft Coverage, Consensus Says Take to Russell
Tuesday 6.23.15 on The Sports Bash:
Bob Cooney jumped on air to talk a little bit about Thursday's draft. He put no stock in any of the reports that came out today surrounding the Sixers. Cooney still says that D'Angelo Russell is the selection with Towns and Okafor coming off the board. Cooney would even select Okafor third overall if Russell is somehow selected second overall to the Lakers.
Derek Bodner joined on this Tuesday's show to update us on any rumors or reports surrounding the Sixers. Like Cooney, Bodner has the Sixers selecting Russell third overall. Bodner also gives us some insight on the possibility of the Sixers trading into the back end of the first round using a few the 5 second round picks they own. Bodner gives us a few of names watch out for late in the first round.
Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders on to give us his take on the NBA Draft. Like the previous 2 guests, Kyler has the Sixers taking Ohio State shooting guard D'Angelo Russell with the third overall selection. The Sixers need a player like Russell and he should be there for the taking on Thursday night.
