The Moving Screen is a podcast collaboration with The Athletic’s Brendan Quinn. We’ll be tackling Michigan, Michigan State and Big Ten basketball at large with a blend of rational analysis and hot takes.
The pod is back to break down Michigan and Michigan State’s rosters now that the NBA Draft early entry deadline has passed. We also take a deep dive into the Big Ten and predict whether conference teams will take a step forward or backward in 2019-20.
Listen to “Offseason roster thoughts on Michigan & Michigan State, plus a full Big Ten breakdown” on Spreaker.
(3:18): Nick Ward is gone and Cassius Winston returns which makes Michigan State a preseason favorite. What’s next for Michigan State? Would Virginia Tech grad transfer Kerry Blackshear Jr. be a roster fit?
(19:33) Jordan Poole and Ignas Brazdeikis are in the NBA Draft and likely to stay there. We break down the four priority targets that have emerged for Michigan on the late recruiting trail (Justin Pierce, Franz Wagner, Nah’Shon Hyland, and Lester Quinones) and how they would fit the U-M roster.
(48:27) Big Ten Stock Rating: Which teams are headed in the right direction in next year’s standings and which teams aren’t.
