After spending a few days in the woods, the Razzpod returns with Joel and Ossie breaking down the rest of their rosters for Racco’s Mid-Season draft. Together they tease out how to navigate a slow draft after previously healthy players go down while you’re still drafting (looking at you Evan Mobley and Darius Garland), how to target late assists and points after paying early-round prices for defense and big man stats, and figure out just how long you can wait to draft a big in a two-center format.
