Long-Term Plans: TOR, ORL, DAL; When to Challenge; How to Navigate Conflict w/ Coaches
4007
What is the future for 3 interesting teams at different points in the success cycle, Toronto, Orlando, and Dallas? For the Raptors, we assess where Pascal Siakam is as a foundational piece, plus whether it makes sense to move their veterans and what they might get on the trade market, plus how to set up for Giannis in 2021.   Orlando is off to a rough offensive start, is there a path forward into contention for this group or are major changes needed? We also look at how Dallas can get a 3rd piece to pair with KP and Luka, or whether they should try to fill in with role guys around them instead? Then we take stock of how coaches have been using challenges so far and when is the best time to use them. Finally we get into how a front office can address the situation when there’s a difference with the coach on how and who to play.

Jump to Conclusions Week; 2020 Free Agency Outlook, How Teams Report Injuries to the Media
4028
With jump to conclusions week in the books, what predictions are Nate and John thinking about revising? We’ve got major concerns about the Kings and Warriors, plus the Suns are looking a ton better. Then we look at the 2020 free agency and discuss why the extension market played out as it did, plus what the teams with cap space will do now with so many targets off the market. Plus what will happen with key veteran free agents like DeMar DeRozan, Andre Drummond, and Mike Conley? We hit a couple of mailbag questions on what front offices have access to stats wise that laypeople don’t, and whether the league is doing enough to help small markets. And John explains what goes into team reporting about injuries and disabuses Nate of a theory or two. Finally we talk about some of the games we’ve seen in person over the last week.  With hosts @JohnHollinger and @NateDuncanNBA Subscribe now via iTunes, RSS Feed, or search "Hollinger & Duncan" in your favorite podcast player.

Controversial Rookies, Controversial Teams, a Mailbag, and How Teams Make Cuts
4652
John shows he'll give us the closest look behind the curtain of running an NBA franchise that we’ve ever seen. To start John and Nate discuss some of the rookies who will over- and underperform their draft slots and debate three West playoff contenders whose fortunes they disagree on this season.   Then a mailbag from listeners, including the definitive answer on the value of midrange shots that will put an end to all discussion of this issue forever, how important ball movement is for an offense, what John thinks of his PER metric almost 20 years later, and whether Knicks fans have anything to look forward to this year. We finish up with discussing how cuts are made in camp. What kind of influence do coaches have, what happens if you have to convince the owner to eat guaranteed money, and whether it’s better to have a solid 15-man roster coming into camp.
