Talking Hoops with Ted Sarandis – April 20, 2016

April 20, 2016 Columns, Podcasts No Comments

Welcome to Talking Hoops with Ted Sarandis. As the off-season continues, the NBA Draft and coaching changes continue to take center stage, albeit with a twist in recent days.

We start with Ted talking about his trip to the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, a long-running event for college seniors as a precursor to the NBA Draft. In recent years, many have turned down invitations for one reason or another, often feeling that they would do better just working out for teams, but with seniors being a big part of the college basketball season this year, this edition of the PIT hauled in a very good group that could see a half dozen players get drafted.

We segue to the coaching carousel, which was highlighted by the story of Chris Beard. After one big year at UALR, he was off to UNLV, but that wasn’t the end. With Texas Tech then opening up, Beard, who considers Lubbock to be like home, went for the job and got it. UNLV ultimately hired a very good and underrated coach in Marvin Menzies, but it’s not a good situation there right now. AD has to be on the hot seat, while the roster is beyond depleted due to an exodus of players from this season’s roster and coaching instability hurting recruiting. Menzies will have a very tough job at first.

Only a few coaching vacancies remain at this point, and we’ll surely talk more about that later.
