NBA Draft 2014 Podcast: Andrew Wiggins, Dante Exum, Jason Kidd to Bucks, and Utah Jazz questions

General NBA news and Utah Jazz specifics!

Mike Stobe

One again someone nice like Phil Naessens was taking pity on me and listened to me talk nonsense for nearly an hour. On the most recent show we talked about a few crazy things in the NBA right now, and also talked a bit about the NBA Draft (Why not?). Of course, segment two is all about the Utah Jazz and specifics about their off-season and the players they got in the NBA Draft (Dante Exum, Rodney Hood), and why the heck did they trade away Jarnell Stokes?

Check it all out at Phil's site here, or just click below:
