It's been forever but Basketball Prospectus's Kevin Pelton and I are back with a new The Dontonio Wingcast in honor of Portland's hiring of Rich Cho. This week's episode (41 minutes) sounds more like a victory lap than a basketball podcast.
- KP2 gives us the inside scoop on working with Cho in Seattle, what his addition means for the Blazers, what it means for the APBRmetrics community, who Cho might target as his assistant GM and a bunch more.
- We then talk a little about the Wesley Matthews signing: the numbers, whether Kevin Pritchard or Cho would have done the deal, Matthews' personality and lineup fit, and the impact on future moves like extensions for Greg Oden and Nicolas Batum.
For more Rich Cho discussion check out this interview with Antonio Harvey and Mike Barrett on Monday night's episode of Blazers Courtside. The segment starts at the 28 minute mark.
