SORT BY Relevancy
The crew and I will be giving our assessments on 2015 NBA Free Agency. Topics to be discussed include:
Who were the winners/losers of free agency?
What in the hell were the New York Knicks thinking?
Does winning trump the bright lights of bigger markets?
What are the top 10 teams in the NBA right now?
With billions of dollars handed out over the past week, we'll sort through the winners and the losers of an already wild NBA offseason. And later in the show, we'll give you our thoughts on Jahlil Okafor's Summer League debut as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers.
We didn't forget the football talk, however: John Barchard of Bleeding Green Nation Radio and 92.3 ESPN will join us at the top of the show to take us on a deep dive of the Philadelphia Eagles as we get ready for training camp. So, for all of that and more, come and take a ride on The Broad Street Line: The future of sports talk radio has finally arrived.
Starting July 1st, arguably the focal point of the offseason gets underway. Free Agency. Some players have officially opted out. Others will hold tight amid the breathless speculation about their futures. It’s not at the level of 2010 or 2014 but quite a strong free agent class this summer – especially in frontcourt positions. The question is… How many of the big names will actually end up changing places? We already know enough to make some educated guesses about the eventual landing spots of the league's most prominent upcoming free agents. Join @jaihov, @lock_tha_great and the producer of the show @howeezy26 as they discuss the hottest sports news of the past week and analyze potential landing spots for the 2015 NBA Free Agency class.
John and Dan get together to chat about Syracuse's current and future quarterback situation, plus NBA free agency and of course, beer.
The weather has cooled down, but that is not the same on the hot stove front in Major League Baseball. These next few months will go a long way in selling tickets for the 2016 Major League Baseball season, but which teams will have a legitimate chance of the dethroning the World Series Champions in the Kansas City Royals? How active can we expect the big market teams to be in free agency? Will the New York Yankees be buyers? Will the New York Mets build on their recent success? Be sure to check out the 300lbsofsportsknowledge Show this Thursday night at 8PM Eastern/5PM Pacific as I will be discussing free agency in Major League Baseball.
Let's recap the 2015 NBA Draft with trades, shockers and Kentucky having 4 players in the lottery taken. Did the Knicks get it right with Porzingis? Nets, Blazers and Hornets changing their rosters. Then we will start to look at Free Agency as LeBron opt out and players are looking to move, but we might have a lot of 1 or 2yr deals. We will predict Wimbledon as Serena looks to win another major. MLB is inching closer to the All Star break and we will talk Pete Rose plus the standings. We finish strong with our segment "Your Not Ready" where we look at a team or player on the rise.

Five top sleeper free agents are all playing in the playoffs with the hope of cashing in big this summer as columnist Michael Scotto outlined in a previous SheridanHoops column.
With the NBA projected to increase the salary cap to roughly $90 million in 2016, teams will spend big this summer with the hope those deals will be bargains in retrospect once the new salary cap kicks in. Whether a majority of players opt for shorter deals remains to be seen.
Despite the anticipated gold rush for free agents in 2016, there are some players who would rather opt out of their contracts this summer after a productive season with the chance of guaranteed money at stake without risking a major injury next season.
With that in mind, Scotto joined 1320 AM KFAN in Utah and hosts Kyle Gunther and Ben Anderson to discuss the top five sleeper free agents and some key decisions players will have to make this summer whether to opt into or out of their current contracts.
Join Brandon and Anthony Green for Sports Trap Radio this week as they recap the 2015 NBA Draft, Preview NBA Free Agency, and discuss the resignation of Phillies skipper Ryne Sandberg. The draft is over, we won't give out draft grades, but we will discuss the picks, who got picked too early, too late and who didn't get drafted at all. NBA Free Agency starts officially on July 1st, we'll discuss the top free agents on the market and who could land where! The Phillies won the World Series in 2008, and have been trending downward since, Sandberg resigned, but what is next?
The summer's free agent market will not be as crazy as last year's, when LeBron James left Miami for Cleveland, or next year's, when Kevin Durant and his agent, Jay-Z, will decide where he will continue his career.
In fact, this summer's market could be a elative dud given the incentive teams now have to match any reasonable offer their restricted free agents receive. And with the influx of new TV money coming into the NBA, "reasonable" is a relative term.
But there are a number of attractive unrestricted free agents and players with opt-outs to make for a fairly interesting summer -- and one of the most interesting things will be who the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers can have a legitimate shot at acquiring.
With that in mind, I discussed the free agent market, especially Memphis center Marc Gasol, on ESPN Radio 92.9 in Memphis this morning with host Geoff Calkins.
