Eye on Basketball Podcast: Beas, Bucks, and (Euro)Basket

Matt Moore is joining me today for the EOB Pod as we get into a couple of topics before diving into the Milwaukee Bucks' offseason moves. Before we talk about the Bucks, we haven't discussed the release of Michael Beasley from the Phoenix Suns yet. What brought about his release and what can possibly get Beasley on the right track? Is there a situation he hasn't been given yet or has he just been unwilling to do the work to succeed? Is there a correct mentor to get him back in the good graces of NBA teams?

Then it's time to talk about the Bucks' offseason. Where exactly are the Bucks going? With Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis gone, Milwaukee has a new direction to take. Did they blow this offseason by choosing to spend money on three-year deals to O.J. Mayo and Zaza Pachulia? Are they going off the Houston Rockets' game plan of remaining competitive while bringing in assets? Should they have tanked? What's the best-case scenario for them? Can they make the playoffs?

We discuss all of this, plus coaches and executives getting ownership stakes in teams, the beauty of EuroBasket, and much more.
