Two-Minute Drill: Chet’s Masterful Summer Debut

Jonathan Grant | July 6th, 2022

1st Down: Chet Holmgren’s official NBA debut will have to wait a little while longer, but his summer bow took place on Tuesday night and he will have received rave reviews for the way in which he played. The #2 pick dominated and recorded 23 points in 24 minutes for the Oklahoma City Thunder as they hammered the Utah Jazz 98-77. Holmgren set a record for blocks and three-pointers in the contest, too. OKC will certainly hope he can produce similar levels of play when the regular season gets underway in a few months.

2nd Down: The Pac-12 are keen upon ensuring they don’t lose any further members, and one measure they are attempting to take is to nail down their media rights deals with the schools they currently have in place following the departures of USC and UCLA. With rumors swirling of other schools, namely Oregon and Washington, looking into potential moves as well, the league has decided to get an early start on negotiations in the hopes of keeping it intact in the ever-changing college landscape.

3rd Down: In related news regarding the Pac-12, it looks as if the conference has looked into what reports call a “loose partnership” with the ACC. What exactly that would entail remains to be seen as of right now, but you’d have to think it would be similar to the sort of association that Notre Dame currently has with the conference. We’ll see how it all shakes out, but many feel as if we are going to eventually see two megaconferences anyway…

4th Down: The Seattle Seahawks are going to go into the 2022-23 season without Russell Wilson under center, and that has caused a ton of speculation to come out about a replacement. As of now, Drew Lock is slated to be the starter, and one rumor that’s apparently untrue is that the team were interested in Baker Mayfield. The still Cleveland Brown QB is said to have interested them the Pacific northwestern team, but they have not had a ‘strong’ interest in him. So, it sounds as if the Seahawks might would be open to a deal, but only for a very good, low price. Or so it seems.
