Many of the Mock Drafts have the big Finnish power forward going the Sacramento Kings with their number 10 pick in the draft. Since the big seven-footer from Finland could be one of the next members of the rebuilding Kings, we thought you would like to know more about him.

Bruce and I talk about:

  • His character
  • How Markkanen has adjusted to life in the USA
  • How involved his family is in his career
  • His strengths and weaknesses on offense
  • Markkanen’s defense
  • His ability to handle adversity
  • and more

Bruce has covered the Arizona program for years and has a real some insights that I am sure you will enjoy. It will be 15 minutes well spent.

I also got Bruce to comment on the rumors that Arizona Wildcats coach Sean Miller might be interested in the vacant head coaching job at Ohio State where he was once an assistant coach.

Hope you enjoy the show.
