June 24: What comes next for Canada Basketball
June 24 2019
Brian Burke of the NHL on Sportsnet joins Jeff Blair and Richard Deitsch in-studio to put a bow on the 2019 NHL Entry Draft, and discuss the moves to come leading up to free agency (3:20); then with the New York Mets in the news for all the wrong reasons, SNY's John Harper hops on the show to share his thoughts on the team and how they handled yesterday's clubhouse incident (29:55). Former NBA executive Billy King talks about what goes into the pitches to recruit NBA free agents, and offers his opinion on this year's free agent class (47:28). Later in the hour, the GM of Canada Basketball's Senior Men's team, Rowan Barrett, talks about the decision to hire Nick Nurse as the team's head coach, and also spoke about his emotions on draft night seeing his son RJ drafted 3rd overall to the New York Knicks (1:13:41). The Blue Jays took two of three against the Red Sox, but all anyone wants to discuss is Marcus Stroman vs. Dennis Eckersley! Blue Jays play by play voice Ben Wagner weighs-in on that and previews tonight's series against the Yankees (1:34:10). To end off the show, we go "Inside the Green Room" with Harrison Sanford, who hosts the podcast alongside Raptors sharpshooter (and upcoming free agent) Danny Green. Where could he be headed come July 1st? Could he be back in Toronto?
