Boeheim’s Army General Manager Kevin Belbey calls in to talk about the 2020 TBT with host Wes Cheng on The Juice on the Cuse podcast hosted by TJO editor in chief Brad Bierman then calls in to chat about the 2020 NFL Draft.

Here are the highlights from the show:

Wesley Cheng: Malachi Richardson. Tyler Lydon. Huge additions to the team. Both members of that 2016 Final Four team. Both guys were first round NBA Draft picks. Both have NBA experience. I just think these are two huge gets for Boeheim’s Army.

Kevin Belbey: It’s so important to have young, fresh legs in this tournament. Those guys are going to bring new dimensions to this team. We’ve never had a guy like Tyler Lydon, who can play inside and outside. He can rebound. He can score. He might be the best shooter on our team, and maybe in the tournament. He’s lethal from downtown. Malachi won an NBA Championship last year. He got a ring for being part of the 2019 Raptors team early on. He’s young. He’s hungry. Both of those guys are NBA level players. They’re guys who should not be on our team. They belong in the NBA. We’re really lucky to have them for the summer.
