Here are the highlights from the show:

Wesley Cheng: What NBA skills does Elijah Hughes possess?

Ryan Blake: He’s versatile. He’s big swing or guard that can play and defend multiple positions. Someone that can shoot the outside shot and pass. He’s a good athlete. He was a good shot blocker for his size. When you have someone that size that can make an impact on both ends of the floor, he’s going to be a viable prospect to consider in the NBA Draft.
