The Aaron Torres Sports Podcast E44: NBA Draft with Michael Scotto

It’s an NBA Draft heavy episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, as Aaron welcomes on draft expert Michael Scotto of The Athletic to the show. Michael wrote a captivating piece last week on the draft evaluations of Jarred Vanderbilt, P.J. Washington and others and he joins Aaron to talk about it.
But first, Aaron welcomes his buddy Nick Coffey, as the two discuss:
Tyrese Maxey’s CommitmentThere’s a new member of Big Blue Nation, as Tyrese Maxey has committed to Kentucky. It also raises the question: Did John Calipari “re-gain” his recruiting touch? Or did he never lose it at all?
Draft TalkAaron and Nick take a deep dive into some draft decisions, including the fickle future of P.J. Washington at Kentucky. Why are some players in such a rush to leave, especially when in one season they can rapidly improve their draft stock?
Is Nevada – yes, Nevada – about to get a McDonald’s All-American? Aaron gives the inside scoop on Jordan Brown, the only McDonald’s All-American who hasn’t committed yet, and why he believes he’ll sign with Nevada. Aaron and Nick also explain the history of their love for Nevada coach Eric Musselman
Next up, Aaron welcomes NBA Draft expert Michael Scotto to the show, to talk all things NBA Draft. The pair break down a number of topics, including:
How do NBA people evaluate this draft? How deep is it? How good many elite players are there? Also, what do NBA people think about 200+ college players declaring for the pros?
