In this episode of the Locked On Nuggets podcast, I am joined by Ben Dowsett, deputy editor of Basketball Insiders, to talk about Trey Lyles. Ben shares his scouting report on Lyles, what he thinks went wrong in Utah, and what his biggest weakness is as a player. We also discuss whether he is a good bet to bounce back now that he is in a new place with a new role.

After that we talk about Donovan Mitchell, the Jazz’s outlook now that Gordon Hayward has headed to Boston, and try to figure out which team has the more promising roster, now and going forward: the Denver Nuggets, or the Utah Jazz.

Lastly, we try to pick which eight teams will make the playoffs in the Western Conference and which teams are on the bubble.

It’s a really fun chat with one of my favorite bloggers from around the web. Be sure to follow him on twitter, @Ben_Dowsett and check out Basketball Insiders. They have by far the biggest collection of videos from Summer League including several on the Denver Nuggets.
