BOSTON - In this episode, there was a lot to hit on. Vecenie and Zwicker start with 10 minutes on Greg Monroe signing in Boston (both are, overall, quite positive on the choice). Then, they briefly chat about the Nikola Mirotic trade to New Orleans. Does that deal make sense for the Pelicans? Should Mirotic have exercised the option in his deal?

Next, they move on to the Joakim Noah news that he’s leaving the Knicks for the time being. What are the Knicks’ options? Should they stretch his contract? Should they just ride out the final two years? In their final NBA topic, they chat about the report from The Athletic that the Magic are quietly shopping Aaron Gordon. Should the Magic seriously consider moving him? Also, why?

Then, they break down Mohamed Bamba, and how he’s turned it up significantly over the last month of the season. How strongly do they believe in his game? Where do they have him on their boards? Finally, they chat quickly about Lonnie Walker, and how he has the look of a lottery pick despite a slow start.
