After a long hiatus from the Coast 2 Coast podcast, Austin Cracraft and Dante Guarneri talk the NBA Draft with Thomas Tittley ahead of the June 22 event. Thomas gives the pair his top 10 mock draft and they discuss how each pick would affect each team, including a particularly interesting pick of Zach Collins at No. 10 to the Sacramento Kings. In the middle of the podcast, the group is interrupted by the breaking news that the Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to a trade.

Austin and Dante also react to the news of Pau Gasol‘s decision to opt out and Milos Teodosic possibly coming to play for the Chicago Bulls.
