But instead, a return of Dangelo Russell Bleacher report says the team plans to have face to face meeting with Russell when free agency officially begins on June, thirtieth, and while they're trying to clear up space. They're also trying to convince Anthony Davis to wave is four million dollar trade kicker Russell did leave LA on good terms in former team president Magic Johnson publicly questioned his leadership ability, but magic is now gone and Russ. Sle is said to have mutual interest in a return to LA should the net signed Cairo Europe being let him walk or net executive Bobby marks on how the Brooklyn nets navigate being players now in this free in game. They cleared about a million dollars when they moved that pick to the clippers for a future first round pick. And they are. They've got position to New York to go out and to get to max players. The question will be if they have the opportunity to go out and get a Kevin Durant, and Kyrie Irving. They still need to move about one point three million dollars in ru at a player here in the difference between Brooklyn and New York is that Brooklyn still has the angel-. Russell is restricted free agent so they can bring back Russell go out and get a player like Tobias Harris and those two players.

They have a terrific mix gifted players polish. They're gonna take sway to Leonard, if they miss they can move onto Durant, in the lie on their deep roster compete as he recovered warms in California with some maneuvers. They should have signed, both could it be the nets Brooklyn has been hearing cap space last several making for to moving appears to be lining up to be one, and they've been scheming to make Durant, the other now perhaps Irving closed down the fort with the nets other young pieces. They wait for Durant attorney with him already recovering, New York. It's a serious possibility. This is going to be the craziest summer ever. What if he just stays home with the warriors Golden State was bracing for these now they could turn crisis doing opportunity offering a five year contract to warriors have the chance to show him support? News that we have been longside Thompson, perhaps flip the script to go for being seems a mercenary to selfless devoted to then returned to make another run. That sounds like a fairytale in the end it's about selling vision two teams to Durant and Durant to the teeth. If they're both right. They could be right. Big. They're wrong. Well, this was true tragedy. More NBA free agency later in the show, who has the inside track on Koa. Why we will explore trades overshadow the second day of the NHL draft PK sue bond, and Patrick Marlowe were on the moving pair of deals. The devils acquired Sudan from the prayed for a pair of young players in a pair draft picks New Jersey landing defenseman a day after taking center. Jack us number one overall on Friday.

While scoring nine goals and twenty two cyst. Let's bring in ESPN NHL national reporter, Emily Kaplan, who's been in Vancouver site of the draft. And Emily, there are a host of defense on that trade market with Sudan, the first to go, what were you impressions of the deal prize? But it wasn't a huge surprise the Nashville predators.
