In Episode 1224, Sean Woodley goes solo to react to the signing of Juancho Hernangomez aka Bo Cruz to power rank the 20 players the Raptors are now projected to bring to training camp in September. Off the top, Sean ranks the six core players on the team: Pascal Siakam, Fred VanVleet, Scottie Barnes, OG Anunoby, Precious Achiuwa and Gary Trent Jr. Next, Sean digs into the surefire bench rotation pieces that should round out a very sound nine-man rotation: Chris Boucher, Otto Porter Jr. and Thad Young. Will that trio be the key to Nick Nurse being a little more conservative with the minutes totals for his star players? Next, Sean assesses where the guys on the fringes of the rotation -- Khem Birch, Justin Champagnie, Dalano Banton and Malachi Flynn -- sit in the franchise hierarchy, before rounding out the show with a look at the guys who will likely spend a good chunk of time with Raptors 905 in the G-League, and sizing up the battle for what will likely be one roster spot between four players.

Chris Boucher's Thirty Year Journey into Hemp

After thirty plus years in the industry, Chris Boucher knows a thing or two about hemp. These days he's the CEO of Farmtiva, a California-based hemp company that specializes in consulting, seed sales, and a hemp juice powder called JuiceTiva, but his journey with hemp started long before the Farm Bill created the pathway for the modern hemp industry. He started a business in 1990 called the Hempstead Co. that made hemp wallets, hats, bags and such. “Back then the only place you could get hemp was either in China, Hungary, Romania or Poland. And so I went over to China in '92, and we sourced the hemp there,” he said during this week's episode. Boucher wanted to source his hemp in the U.S., and so in 1994 he secured permission from the USDA and became the first person to grow hemp in the U.S. in decades. But before the crop was harvested, local narcotics agents in California destroyed it by plowing it under, and the dream of U.S.-grown hemp had to wait. Along the way he also co-founded the Hemp Industries Association, wrote an influential legal opinion about CBD, and imported the first CBD oil into the U.S. He traces his career in hemp back to a chance encounter in 1990 when he was asked to sign a petition to legalize hemp by a man who had just published a book that explained the history and potential of hemp. That man was Jack Herer, author of the seminal hemp book “The Emperor Wears No Clothes.” The two became lifelong friends. As the current director of the California Hemp Growers Guild, an advocacy group for hemp farmers, Boucher sees first hand the detrimental effect recent state legislation is having on California's hemp farmers. He said it's a big win for the marijuana industry and a big loss for the hemp industry. Hemp now falls under the jurisdiction of the California Bureau of Cannabis Control instead of the California Department of Agriculture. Boucher said that the agency's fee structure and regulations make it nearly impossible for hemp farmers to compete, and many have stopped growing hemp altogether. “We've lost 90% of hemp farmers in California. We went from 800 farmers down to 120,” he said. He said these new regulations will also make it very expensive for any out-of-state hemp companies wishing to do business in California. Also in this episode, host Eric Hurlock reads a summary of the new definition of hemp set forth in the recently introduced Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act, Chuck Schumer's bill to federally legalize cannabis.

In Episode 1213, Sean Woodley is joined by Vivek Jacob to recap the Toronto Raptors' 97-77 win over the Philadelphia 76ers in their first taste of Las Vegas Summer League action on Saturday. Off the top, they share their biggest takeaways following Christian Koloko's debut with the team, in which he scored 12 points while also collecting three steals and three blocks. His offense has a long way to come along, but his mobility was a real stand-out. Next, they discuss the Raptors signing DJ Wilson to a standard NBA deal, and examine how his inclusion could change things in the battle for the Raptors; final roster spot. Could Wilson nudge out someone like Justin Champagnie or Svi Mykhailiuk? Or is he at long odds to make a team that now has four centers on the roster. Lastly, they about Dalano Banton's big effort in the LVSL opener, and try to determine which back end roster player stands the best chance of nudging into the regular rotation this coming season as the 10th man behind Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, OG Anunoby, Gary Trent Jr., Scottie Barnes, Precious Achiuwa, Otto Porter Jr., Thad Young and Chris Boucher.

In Episode 1210, Sean Woodley is joined by William Lou (The Raptors Show, Sportsnet 590 The Fan) to talk about the case for the Toronto Raptors ponying up and going all-in to acquire Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant, even if it costs Scottie Barnes or Pascal Siakam. Off the top, they dig into how far they'd go in negotiations to land KD, with the one inescapable fact of it all being that... it's Kevin Durant. Is it worth giving up Scottie Barnes and all the potential he has? Or is the sure thing that is Durant worth the gamble -- especially if he can moved later in his contract for at least some form of return if things don't work out in the early days of his contract. Next, Sean and Will talk about the idea of including Precious Achiuwa in an OG Anunoby, Gary Trent Jr. and draft picks package, and whether it would be a dealbreaker to trade three valuable pieces for one. Counterpoint: it's Kevin Durant. Lastly, Sean picks Will's brain on the Raptors' off-season moves, and why keeping Thad Young and Chris Boucher while adding Otto Porter Jr. sets the Raptors up to hit the ground running the event the team they have today is the one they roll out on opening night.

In this episode, Shamit Dua of Boot Crewe Media joins the show and we do a substantial deep dive into 2022 NBA Free Agency and the offseason. We start with the Rudy Gobert trade. Why we're skeptical for Minnesota, and why it's a great deal for Utah. Then, the Kyrie-for-Russell Westbrook report came from Chris Haynes while recording, so we dove deep into that, explaining why this is the kind of deal that just kind of makes sense for everyone involved given the weird stages of both organizations. Then, we move to the Malcolm Brogdon trade. Then, we go, in order: Portland's free agency moves, the Knicks signing Brunson and Mitchell Robinson, the 76ers having a normal offseason!, Milwaukee's smart moves, the Tyus Jones deal, Golden State's moves, the Raptors bringing back Chris Boucher and Thad Young, the Lakers bringing in JTA, Walker and Brown, the weird Mo Bamba re-signing in Orlando, Marvin Bagley's deal in Detroit, DORT's extension versus Jae'Sean Tate's extension, Malik Monk, Bruce Brown, Ricky Rubio.

The CHGO Bulls crew go live one hour into NBA free agency to react to players around the league agreeing to deals while the Bulls sat idle and made no deals. With Kevin Durant requesting a trade out of Brooklyn just hours before the free agency window opened, teams around the league still wasted no time in making other deals. But not the Bulls. Potential mid-level targets like Isaiah Hartenstein, Mo Bamba, Amir Coffey, PJ Tucker, Thad Young, Chris Boucher and others fell off the free agent board in the opening minutes. Matt, Big Dave, Will and Mark discuss why the Bulls were silent - not even announcing a new contract for Zach LaVine - as free agency began. Is there a chance that Bulls ownership has told the front office the luxury tax is not in play next season, and did that have an impact on their lack of action? The guys also discuss players who still haven't committed and could be on the Bulls' radar.

Off the top, Sean talks about the Boucher and Young deals, which weren't terribly surprising but great to see nonetheless, as they should have been the front office's top priorities coming into the off-season. Next, Sean talks about the Otto Porter Jr. addition as he jumps shit from the Golden State Warriors, and why if he is the final addition to next season's roster, that is a perfectly fine place for the still growing Raptors to be. Lastly, Sean talks about the Kevin Durant trade demand, why he would not part with Scottie Barnes to get KD in the door, and whether Deandre Ayton could still be a stealthy possibility for the Raptors to land if the market bares out in a favourable way.

In Episode 1205, Sean Woodley goes solo to run through all the Toronto Raptors-related rumours flying around ahead of free agency opening up on Thursday, including notes on a possible Fred VanVleet extension, Thad Young's possible returning on a two-year deal and more. Off the top, Sean digs into the report from Bleacher Report's Jake Fischer suggesting the Raptors could be closing in on a 4-year / $110 million extension, and details why that is a no-brainer move for the Raptors to make -- in fact you're a fool if you disagree! Next, Sean talks about Fischer's report that Thad Young and the Raptors could come to terms on a deal in the 2-year / $10 million range, which would be perfectly reasonable while also putting to bed any debate over whether the Raptors won or loss the Thad deal with the San Antonio Spurs. Plus, some thoughts on Chris Boucher and whether the radio silence on his free agent status is good or bad news, Nerlens Noel, who was a rumoured Raptors target before he was dealt to Detroit, and Mo Bamba, who will not be returning to Orlando and could be a interesting piece for the Raptors to add if they simply feel they must add another center, even if they should probably devote their mid-level exception to guards or wings.

The beginning of the NBA's 2022 free agency period begins June 30 and the Trail Blazers have real needs to upgrade the roster, re-sign important contributors and then scour the trade market. Here's everything you need to know to get you ready for Portland's massively important summer. First the key dates of the offseason, how the free agent moratorium works and why the Blazers won't upgrade the roster using cap space. No Cap Space, huh? Well the Blazers still have avenues to get better, including a couple small trade exceptions and the Non-Taxpayer Midlevel Exception, which is a ~$10.3 million contract that could help them lure the likes of Kyle Anderson, Thad Young, Chris Boucher, Mo Bamba or Isaiah Hartenstein to Portland. Free agency isn't the only avenue for the Blazers this summer. We look at the roster to close the show and conclude the obvious: Some kind of trade is coming. The team is not good enough and not big enough to seriously compete for the playoffs as constructed. We run down the roster and look to get a sense of what the team's needs are before the offseason begins in earnest. It's a good episode. Learn more about your ad choices.

After coming over from a great defensive program in Cal, Tim Deruyter had Duck fans feeling like there wouldn't be much of a drop off after losing Andy Avalos to Boise St (where he became the HC). Instead, there were real areas of weakness for the Ducks defensively in 2021 that contributed to a disappointing end to the season. Despite question marks in the secondary, Oregon's defense could still take a leap forward in 2022 compared to last year. On this episode of Locked On Ducks, Spencer McLaughlin examines the statistical performance of Oregon's defense last year and where they most need to improve. The passing defense stands out as an area for growth, but there are two other areas where Oregon was even worse: third down and the red zone. Dan Lanning and DC Tosh Lupoi could help this defense (and the team) dramatically if those numbers can improve in 2022. Dana Altman has found some serious success in the past bringing in JUCO players to Eugene, including Chris Duarte and Chris Boucher. Tyrone Williams, coming to Eugene by way of Grayson County College in TX, should be another NJCAA transfer that has Oregon fans' attention. An athletic lefty combo guard who can shoot (led the NJCAA in scoring last year) he could very well fill the void left by Eric Williams off the bench. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

In Episode 1182, Sean Woodley goes solo to tee up the Toronto Raptors off-season and break down what the ideal moves for the team might look like. Off the top, Sean digs into what resources the Raptors actually have to work with going into the summer. They don't have any cap space at all, but they do have the Mid Level Exception to work with, and the Bird Rights of Chris Boucher, Thad Young and Yuta Watanabe to help with bringing back their own pending unrestricted free agents. Will the Raptors have to move on from one of Khem Birch of Malachi Flynn to open up some flexibiility? Next, Sean digs into the question of what exactly the Raptors should prioritize this summer. Should they throw the $10+ million Mid Level at a big man to beef up the front court? Or should they opt to spend their biggest off-season tool to improve their ball-handling and inject a bit of shooting into the mix? Lastly, Sean lays out his ideal opening day depth chart for the Toronto Raptors, and why someone like Thomas Bryant or JaVale McGee would be a nice addition to the centre mix.

With 9 transfer portal additions this offseason, Dan Lanning and Oregon Football are clearly embracing the potential that the portal has to improve your team immediately. With 2 top-returners on the interior DL (Brandon Dorlus, Popo Aumavae) and 3 transfers at the same spot, could the Ducks REALLY look to add another player at that position? They just might, as defensive standout DT Jermayne Lole from Arizona State is scheduled to take a visit to Oregon in June among other schools interested in him. On this episode of Locked On Ducks, Spencer McLaughlin discusses Oregon's continued involvement in the transfer portal--on the gridiron and also on the hardwood. Jermayne Lole is a high-impact player in the Pac-12, but with all of their depth on the DL it's hard to see Oregon emerging as the team to potentially land him. However, reports say that NIL will play a factor and that could give Oregon a boost in his portal recruitment. Dana Altman sparingly used the transfer portal during the first 5-6 years of his tenure with Oregon, but has brought in more players from other schools in recent years. Some have performed very well like Chris Duarte and Chris Boucher, while others like Amauri Hardi and Shakuir Juiston didn't live up to the hype. Spencer looks at some of the best and worst transfers that Dana Altman has brought in as the head coach of Oregon Basketball. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

In Episode 1173, Sean Woodley goes solo to break down the season that was for Toronto Raptors forward Chris Boucher. Off the top, Sean digs into how Boucher transformed his game this season, going from becoming a guy with good stats but without much on-court impact on winning, into a truly positive force on both ends of the floor in a reserve role. Sean talks about how Boucher leaned into offensive rebounding, cutting, and a more fine tuned approach to defense to make him an obvious priority for the Raptors as he hits free agency this summer. Next, Sean digs into Boucher's down year from three-point range, and whether it might be possible for Boucher to tick back up closer to league average next season simply by changing the spots on the floor from which most of his three point attempts come. Lastly, Sean discusses his Stat of the Year for Boucher, and why that number suggests Boucher was overlooked when it came to this year's Sixth Man of the Year conversation. Plus, Sean runs through his favourite Play of the Year for Boucher, and examines what the Raptors might be able to pay him this off-season as they look to keep him around. They can't afford to lose him, can they? Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! Built Bar Built Bar is a protein bar that tastes like a candy bar.

Off the top, Sean digs into how the Raptors' shorthandedness in Game 2 bled into all the other areas of the game, leaving them unable to keep pace for 48 minutes despite a promising start and a torrid first quarter from Fred VanVleet. Next, Sean examines some of the positives from the game, including the turnovers they forced Joel Embiid to commit, the super-efficient scoring of OG Anunoby, the defensive promise displayed by Precious Achiuwa, and the work Chris Boucher did in 30 inspired minutes off the bench. Lastly, Sean takes a big picture view of where this team sits with the series headed back to Toronto with health very much not on its side, and compares this year's version of the team to a recent edition of the Toronto Blue Jays in the hopes of offering some perspective amid the bad vibes of a tough start to the series.

Off the top, they talk about James Harden and how his play could be the biggest swing factor in the series. Does he even have a chance of being the second-best player in the series ahead of Pascal Siakam? Or is Siakam clearly in another class right now? If Harden is cooked, this could be a tough series for Philly. Next, they talk about three-point shooting, which seems to hold outsized importance for a Raptors team with a whole lot of variability in that department. In particular, can the bench options of Thad Young, Precious Achiuwa and Chris Boucher connect on their long range shots? And should Raptors fans even feel totally confident in their "knock down" guys like Gary Trent Jr., Fred VanVleet and OG Anunoby? Lastly, they talk about how Achiuwa could be the single most important swing player in the series, why he should close games, and whether the Raptors should reorient their starting five to prevent themselves from bleeding points early in games?

In Episode 1143, Sean Woodley goes solo to react to the Toronto Raptors' 113-99 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Monday night. Off the top, Sean dives into the ways in which they badly missed Gary Trent Jr. and OG Anunoby against the Bulls, from the offensive dry spells that Trent might have had a chance to stop, to the 11/14 night by DeMar DeRozan that might not have looked so easy with OG available. Do the Raptors stand a chance of making any post-season noise without their key guys at full health? Sadly, probably not. Next, Sean sings the praises of Pascal Siakam, who scored an efficient 22 under tough circumstances on Monday, and continues to play at an All-NBA level. But, if you read the tea leaves, it seems Siakam's All-NBA bid might not end with him on one of the three squads at season's end, which would be fine and in no way a slight against his incredible season. Lastly, Sean hands out to Dude of the Game to both Khem Birch and Chris Boucher, before pouring one out for the Raptors-Bulls season series, which never featured both sides at full health.

Off the top, Sean digs into how the Raptors carved up a totally unequipped Lakers team with dueling Scottie Barnes and Pascal Siakam ISOs, post-ups and drives, while also remarking on how upsettingly bad this Lakers team is. Next, Sean offers thoughts on Fred VanVleet, Gary Trent Jr. and Chris Boucher -- the latter of whom, Sean says has played himself all the way into the Raptors plans beyond this season. Lastly, Sean hands out the Dude of the Game to Precious Achiuwa, before touching on OG Anunoby's injury status, and the race for the sixth seed in the East with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

In Episode 1132, Sean Woodley is joined by Vivek Jacob (Raptors.com) to chat about the Toronto Raptors' 104-96 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday night. Off the top they chat about how little we're currently able to draw from these games with Fred VanVleet, OG Anunoby and now Malachi Flynn all sidelined, leaving behind an incomplete shell of a roster. They also dig into why any tanking rhetoric right now is incredibly misguided. Next, they talk about Toronto's ongoing bench struggles after six reserves combined for a grand total of 8 points on Sunday, and try to figure out who if anyone deserves the blame for how underwhelming the second unit has been all season long. Lastly, they hand out the Dude of the Game to Chris Boucher, who is making a real case to be re-signed by Toronto this summer. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!
