Podcast: Ohio State basketball in the NBA summer leagues, Aaron Craft and more

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

We get up to speed on all sorts of Ohio State basketball related topics, from Aaron Craft to Daniel Giddens, to Amir Williams to LeBron James, on our latest edition of Hangout in the Holy Land.

Outside of the World Cup, the only sports we have on TV right now are NBA Summer League games (unless you are depraved enough to start watching baseball). Ohio State has a few former players on rosters, including No. 1 in our heart, Aaron Craft. Does he have what it takes to stick on an NBA roster? How is he doing?

The Buckeyes also recently grabbed a big time big man recruit in Daniel Giddens, and are starting to attract national attention for their recruiting, which may not be done yet.

So there is a lot going on, basketball wise. To get the scoop on the summer leagues, as well as new Ohio State big man Daniel Giddens, we chat with our own Sam Vecenie, who gives us the straight dope on anything you need to know about anything basketball related right now.
