We’re back! Click here to listen to this week’s show on Doug McDermott, Glenn Robinson III, Lebron James and more.

The guys answer the most pressing questions surrounding Doug McDermott:

-Does he move the needle?

-Did the Pacers overpay for him? If so, what’s a fair value?

-Is he insurance for Bojan Bogdanovic?

A sad goodbye to Glenn Robinson.

Instant reactions to Lebron James signing with the Lakers:

-How does that affect the Pacers’ standings in the East?

-Is this upcoming season Indiana’s best chance at winning the conference?

Other moves the Pacers can make:

-Aaron Gordon and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope are off the table

-The podcast was recorded prior to Lance Stephenson announcing he was signing with LA

The show ends with a discussion on the final chapter of the Pacer-Lakers-Thunder Paul George saga.
