Eye on Basketball Podcast: Free agency and draft talk

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

I'm joined by Matt Moore to finally give a little review of what we thought of the 2013 NBA Draft. The draft is a chance to add serious talent to your team for a real cheap price, even in drafts in which it might not be very top heavy. Adding key role players for guaranteed contracts that could end up being below market value is a way a lot of teams rebuild their teams quickly. Did the Cleveland Cavaliers reach on Anthony Bennett? Did the Charlotte Bobcats draft hilariously with Cody Zeller at No. 4? Did the Sacramento Kings make sense with their pick of Ben McLemore? And is it possible the Minnesota Timberwolves and Utah Jazz both had a good trade with each other?

After a brief look at our thoughts on the draft, we start getting into all of the free agency buzz rolling around. Is Dwight Howard worth the distractions when he's healthy? Isn't he still one of the top players in the league who can transform a franchise? Was Chris Paul the ultimate professional for getting his free agency out of the way? How big of a steal is the Chicago Bulls' deal with Mike Dunleavy? And where do the rest of the shooters look like they're going this summer?

We discuss all of this, plus trading Eric Bledsoe, O.J. Mayo's place, and more.
