I remember talking to both of those guys about how they kind of went together and paired together in the backward. And you know they're really competitive. Both of those guys are really intense. You know like you'd see them having intense conversations but the right kind of intense conversations like the kind of the kind of like intense talking between teammates that you want when you're on that kind of winning team that's to push to push each other. That's trying to trying to win now. As opposed to what the hawks have been doing for a few years now at that point which was you know kind of like acquiring assets building that kinda thanks so it was funny to see it was interesting to watch the mindset shift you know and just pick up a notch so both of those guys I mean yeah you might be in a situation this year. Where kevin's coming off the bench. But you can also pair him with so many guys that i do still see kevin getting a good amount of playing time because you can plug in wherever i mean nate definitely likes to keep rotations like he likes to play guys together. Who have experienced playing together on but at this point pretty much got experience playing with everyone else so so yeah i mean there's there's you know again there's more there might be more talent in minutes to go around but that's not the worst problem to have as far as you know from the hawks. Yeah definitely and i'm i'm really interested to see how that plays out on the wing But two more things to close out on number one. We haven't really talked about john collins at all.

"Class with andre hunter It almost felt like he wasn't talked about enough last year Even though the hawks became like a pretty big story nationally. I mean the andrea was fantastic. And his i what what did he play around thirty games last year before he got injured. I think he's kind of i. Don't wanna say missing piece but in terms of looking at a guy who really opens things up for the team especially regular season and the playoffs like you could see how much the team missed him and in could really utilize from the playoffs as well on both ends a. Where's yet healthwise. If i remember correctly he's not quite all the way back. He's not a hundred percent but he said he should be a one hundred percent. I mean of course you have to wait and see and actually get there but he said he would be one hundred percent by the time. The regular season starts so. I don't know how much we'll see him in preseason. I don't know how much we need to see of him. In preseason it might me fence just to let them all keel because they know. The hawks know what they have in de'andre hunter who was Developing into like a potential star. I think The defensive capabilities that he has and i think there are some. Maybe christians. people had about the hawks. That handy answer by a healthy d andre hunter so defense and also a guy who can create for himself get to his own shot You know and take guys won't on one end just playing with a ton of confidence shooting with a ton of confidence Andre hunter was for them last season when he was healthy. It was that that's one of the biggest like year one to year. Two improvements that i've probably seen was the andrea hunter until injuries. Kinda muddled that a little bit. of course you know. They didn't get to use it as much in the playoff. Says as they wanted you know. He played a little bit in that. Nick seat serious on he was out for the year ended up having surgery and now he's probably a few weeks away from being a hundred percent healthy he did live work yesterday. On what through practice. They did some scrimmaging and he was able to participate in other. Just gonna see how that Knee responds and then just go from there So we'll see. What kind of the progress is today but yeah tons tons of potential. And if he's healthy it's funny if he's healthy in cam radishes healthy. That really changes. The hawks defense right air cappella transform. The hawks defense already and kind of did it without those two guys a lot of times. 'cause they were hurt so much You know. Clint really praised kevin herder and the way kevin took on a ton of responsibility on defense like a ton and i don't think anyone was expecting kevin to walsum the week. He did maybe defensively but he he really impressed a lot of people with hawkeye. Now client because obviously. Clint sat back on. Guy is your center. He was he led the league in rebounding. He blocked shots at the rim. Even when he wasn't blocking he changed a lot of shots at the rim But i think for client to if you can have a healthy andrea unhealthy cam defensively. Kinda you can kinda disperse things a little bit. Defensively had a lot on his plate..

Ben Simmons Trade Talks Are Reportedly 'Stalled'
"There is a report from. Cbs sports that the sixers could be preparing to have ben simmons in camp on the roster after trade rumors all summer. What do you think the chances are ben. Simmons starts the season with the sixers. So let's not clough what you saw. Ben simmons in the fourth quarter against the atlanta hawks with the fact that he's a uber talented player to just doesn't attempt shots outside of the paint so to couple. Those are two different things. So if you're feeling you trying to move him after that you're just not going to get the value play return. He's gonna have to come to camp and play value back up and when you do an extension with joel embiid. I'm pretty sure you talk to him. About the future of ben simmons and so you bring them back to camp you start the season woodham. You hope that he plays remotely like he was playing last year as he became a defensive player of the year candidate as he can't flirt with triple doubles. There's so many valuable thieves he can bring to the table. Then if that if in win that value re elevates. That's when you try to move him especially for what they're going to be asking for in

John Collins Agrees to Five-Year, $125M Deal, to Stay With Atlanta Hawks
"Another team. That is absolutely killing it. This offseason is the atlanta hawks. John collins is back on a five year. One hundred twenty five million dollar deal. I'm sure some people are willing to pan this. I think it's fine John collins a really good player you saw how valuable was is. The playoffs went on last year or not last year. But in this past postseason. Like i know the numbers dipped but i still think he provides a lot for them flexibility. Wise this floorspace and continues to be for real. He has some some room to groza. Passer i'm not sure how that's going to look. I hope that. I mean. That's obviously i think that's the the hope for john. Collins was next year is that he really takes a leap as a decision maker. Because that is the big struggle for him right now. I do think that he provides a lot defensively as a weakside rim-protector he can get out to the perimeter. A little bit like it's better than asking clint to close out on the corner. If you have john carlos going on the corner but point being like you just have so much versatility throughout that rosser. Losing john collins hurts a lot more than keeping him. And i also don't think that this is a negative contract. It's a lot of money. But john collins very good player. Who's going to get

And then it vanished into thin air. It went away. Where did it go? Why didn't they win? They had all the momentum. I keep hearing momentum's all that they had a whole uncle Mo on their side.

Boston Celtics: Becky Hammon and Kara Lawson Are Ideal HC Fits
"The celtics per soccer practice facility in boston this billboard went up campaigning for becky hammon or terra lawson to be the next head coach again. Keira has worked on the celtics staff. She is just fantastic. Monico who do you think is the best bit to code the celtics. I don't necessarily have a name yet right. Although i liked the connection that care has but i have three cs. Candidates should have they've got to be able to connect with this squad. They got to be creative in the offense and the talents of these guys and they've obviously got to be able to convert in terms of everything that they're doing practice. I'm behind the scenes. Has the translate on the basketball court. Care i kind of liked that idea so this answer. I am no way shape before trying to take this coach away from the current currency. Which is nate. Mcmillan from. The atlanta hawks. Because i think the hawks likely will try to keep him. But i think what mcmillan has proven and shown what he can do with trae young. Just imagine what he could do. Because he's defensive money he has all the pieces. He has all the young talent offensively. Mcmillan would be good candidates as well as becky hammon. I think hammond that she can handle a team. I think she won the something. Many years back spurs obviously and she took control. That team did a great job. So i mean. I think there's some great candidates out there ought always chauncey billups after-sale. Who's put his time in as well. But i think make is showing that he can handle superstars and and take them to the next level. If the hawks don't take him snatching maybe it's up

Atlanta Hawks-New York Knicks Series Preview
"Let's get to the four or five nacho. This one is interior. Going to be a lot more entertaining. Probably the one. Eight matchup gets underway. Knicks hawks sunday at seven pm eastern on live from madison square garden. The best place you could ever go to watch a basketball game. The knicks swept the season series. A couple of those games. You know nate. Mcmillan wasn't even the coach so they were earlier in the year but keys to the series before we get to our predictions for nick's hawks. Trade started on this one. Well i think. Julius randle has an opportunity and a strong chance at being the best player in this series. He was incredible against the hawks. During the year in three games he was over thirty points per game to forty point games. He had a game winning tip as well. Clearly i'm tap dancing right now. I'm trying to pull up these splits here. You know you mess around with your tabs so much during a show it just throws the was saying julius randle thirty seven points per game. Twelve rebounds six assists. He had the game winning tip as well. He dominated the hawks this season. There's no doubt about it. They just don't have a great matchup for him though. We'll talk about some things. They're gonna do a little bit later on. I'm sure but i do think randall is going to produce at the very least the question will be. Where do the knicks. Then get all of their other points. They've had some great shooting this season. They got five guys shooting better than forty percent i think. Derrick rose has a chance to have a really good series here but skeets. I was listening to your podcast with l g do set on the. I meant you were talking about guys. Who have tyler hero. Potential somebody to explode in the playoffs who also has a cool factor. Let me offer you. Rj barrett my pick for this season's tyler hero forty percent from three during the season. Hit some big shots late. He was at forty seven from three point line for the last two months of the season. He really heated up. the shot. seems real. And i don't know he seems like a bit of a cool customer after getting called out by anthony edwards gimme rj barrett to be the secondary star for the knicks in this series. Because they've got to figure out a way to get to basically one hundred points

We'll start out with the on Lee, a trader today the people's team making the trade with the Atlanta Hawks, and it seemed to the uneducated basketball fan. Like a rather an Oculus deal.

Atlanta Hawks Fire Coach Lloyd Pierce
"We're gonna start with the atlanta hawks. Who fired their coach. Lloyd pierce today. You could see this coming for a while. And i guess i'm gonna start here. We can get into whether he was doing a good job or not. It seems like he wasn't their fan. Base was happy they. I think they blew eleven. Fourth quarter leads just as year they They're fourteen and twenty for the season. They're close enough to like the four five seed where you can make a case you do this now. Somebody writes the ship. You could still be a top five. Playoff tim my question. Is this when you build your team around this. Entire philosophy new spent three years doing that in that philosophy isn't necessarily working. Isn't that the fatah the gm in the owner over the coach. The coach has to be the fall guy. First and then i think the gm travis slink end up being the second fall guy in the offseason but why does the fog. I always have to be the coach. I with this roster. That clearly doesn't work. I mean it's always the coach because the gm is boss. So you're the gm that's probably the first thing like whenever coaches fired it's almost always gm's ultimately right. Yeah who by the way who hired this coach so a going backwards and this is why i always get criticized from From hawks fans. I'm too hard entree on i'm not. I'm just realistic on training. I'm not sure he's a winning player. He might be. He might turn into winning player right now. I'm not sure where it is. I know he's of the worst offenders in the league but since they got him and i think it all starts to that luca trade and the fact that luca became good right away and they went all in on trae young and that they got basically trae young camera tish They're trying to build this infrastructure to make trae young succeed. That is the goal of this franchise. From the moment they made that trade and they kind of anoint him as disguise can be are steph curry so every decision they make after that is based around this premise. That trae young could be steph curry and that leads to three straight years of decisions that when you look at them early. I don't think they worked. So i don't know who the coach could have been. That would have made all the moves they made. If you're just starting with the fundamental premise. Trae young as the next curry. 'cause he's not. Yeah i think you got to look at it like year one and year to always going to be busts with trae like we're gonna rebuild last year. They're playing and honor like thirty minutes like nineteen and twenty one. So really it's like. This is the first year i really counts for them. This is what the air they spent their money. They had the quote unquote team. They want around trae sh- really to me. It was like two years. We're just gonna burn and year. Three years could come together. And that's why pierce was fired so quickly is because the pressure is on schlink now. Big time. I got a two year window to do every wanted with really no expectations of rigging results.

"I think that's kind of where i'm at. I my biggest problem is the mason plumlee signing. I don't get that at all. Like i think german grant you can justify mason. Plumlee getting paid decent to. What was it again. it's like it's like eight and a half year like almost the years right. Yeah so. I mean this is a fine player but that much money was like like mo heartless getting three and a half million dollars compared to mason. Finally getting a half is ridiculous to me. i'd say the the other bigger player wasn't assigning it was a trade but then he today. He signed an extension to stay there. Stephen adams to the pelicans. I was on by this low. Because derrick favors. I guess we can talk about that too. He's gone so you need a defensive style center is probably won't open space the floor next his i on which adams can't favors couldn't Bu- adams's there. I don't yeah. It's it's a. Hefty extensions two years thirty five million a lot I think he's a fine player than he's a fine rim-protector he's not a great switcher. Offensively solid posts up gagging sets great screens. But you can't space. The is a half these passer i. It's just. I don't love it. But i don't hate it and it's just kind of i don't see how he fits into their time line and what they're doing. Maybe the veteran leader. But yeah. I mean i guess like i love the idea of him as a veteran presence there but signing him to an extension before even seen seen him play with your cores. What's weird to me like i don't. I don't understand that. I think and especially to like just the money that he's getting like he's really declined. The last couple years athletically I mean he's still a good player. But i don't know if i'm comfortable paying that much money As especially like if. I haven't seen him play with my guy is like how are you supposed to know. Okay we can paying this much. Like i dunno. I have questions about that I still don't buy the idea. Like i saw how of people throwing out. Well we don't know if it's going to be the full time five or not is never going to be a fulltime five just like you cannot. I'm sorry i maybe he'll play some lineups as the five boroughs. I just don't get how we can look at zion and be like. Oh he's going to be a fulltime five sunday like now. He's six six. It's not gonna happen. Yeah now i agree. It was as he's never going to be five. He's on talk more about the favors wanted you. Definitely utah's wrote about this weekend. Yeah which is So you go ahead them. I liked it. Derrick favors slogan player. He's similar marcus. Obviously a lot younger va like. He struggled in the bubble and looked really bad but he added a weird year because he was injured. The beginning of the year His mom pass away so that you know he was offer some time with that as well obviously took a hit on him but he was really good with them completely..

"I still think it was kind of a loss to to lose. And he wasn't even on that big of a deal But i do think tristan thompson won't be nice and I don't know like where are you going to add on how he changes the dynamics at center because like he's a better player daniel ties. I guess but he's not really an as a rim protector. I guess you could save better rebounder on both ends I think he helped some else. But yeah i think in the postseason against bam. They saw how physical like. Many centers are abandoned bead. And i think they want a stronger center thompson might not necessarily be a better defender than but he's definitely a lot more bill stronger indefinitely bang bodies in the post a little better than twice but i like it but i also am just like okay. We just burying time lord again. Which kinda. Because i was really wants kanter got traded this clears away for time lower to the backup given consistent minutes. Let him learn let him development now just looks like probably again. he's not he's going to struggle to see minutes And maybe that was the plan where we'll bring in thompson and if time lord looks good we'll trade thompson world trade ties or they won't trace on that contract but they'll trade they'll trade thompson. If tom oh looks good so this is kind of like they're you know they have a plan a and plan b yards on team. But i don't know i mean they. They took it. Is that easy. Yeah and then the last perspective on it. I mean i think i mean. Indiana kind is hold pat near the same Definitely a bit of a mess for them against wasn't really they were willing to make the deal but hayward would made them a lot better but not at one hundred twenty million dollars. I think if they'd gone that far that would have been way too much..

"Is fantastic Chris thank you get man. We really appreciate it in saturday dude. That was a that was a blast. Chris was awesome. I mean i'm just kinda wanna go through the biggest signings and how it affects those teams and stuff like that. I think the best places stars. Probably gordon hayward yeah no unequivocally I think just coming from a non boston perspective for me like a. I was in the middle of recording a podcast when it happened and it was shocking as hell the see. They went to charlotte if anything. I expected him to resign with boston. If it wasn't gonna end up in indiana I wonder what your thoughts are on how dan yan channel this because there was the potential back a milestone who obviously is a valuable player. Not nearly as good of a player as gordon hayward. But you know there's a thought an idea behind your at least getting back in asset in value right And i also think something that gets lost in. The sauce. Is losing gordon hayward contract. You lose that money and you can't really just get it back like you lose a ton of a tradable asset just by losing the contract inherently which is bad. Its own right Just water thoughts general in how everything reportedly went down with the agent. How he handled his dealing with with indiana. Well so the thing We don't know if aims will so his thing. hey. I said that's why now. But hayward was technically an unrestricted free agent. Yeah and the whole idea was some indiana trade so they can get something back. But if hayward didn't if hayward wasn't gonna get a hundred four hundred twenty mil from indiana he could have said. I'm not gonna go to indiana. I'm doing the sign and trade. I'm going to charlotte so texting. If that's the case it was hayward's decision age. Couldn't do anything with indiana Reports are that the offer there from indiana Died not see that. I thought i saw gary washburn posts. The washington post offer and turned mcdermott.

I think he knows putting out. Four for one hundred. Was there. maximum. Going to investigate hayward was like i'm gonna go get twenty million extra charlotte Which i get. Maybe he wants to also go to a smaller market pressure in charlotte. You're like they're not even like expected to make the postseason and he went and got that bag which. I don't have a problem within. I think i something came out yesterday. That said he was In in talking about mouth turn a signing trade for hayward they said that aims was asking about the league about turner what he could get for him and apparently the his values are so low so that might have been part of it. But if if that's the case that turner was on the board for hayward heroes willing to take a discount to indiana in the hanes Faulk that up. Then that's a. That's a bad bad..

So we're gearing up for snow will you You're you're what's it like in atlanta right. Now it's it's very nice today Sixty one degrees very funny aren't they were moving No complaints at all definitely definitely so a jump right into a man. There's there's so much to ask about. I mean number one Bogging bogdanovich his. That hasn't officially gone through There's still time for sacramento mash. The offered but right now based on reporting it looks like That will go through for atlanta What are your thoughts so far just on on bogged on potentially coming in likely taking starting role that seems to be part of the reason why he would want out of sacramento. Yeah well if if it does go through A recording this before it's actually official but if it does go through I do think that he's the kind of player that trae young and the hawks. I've been looking to add in the backward. Because while i think kevin heard her is a fine young player He has proven in his two seasons yet that he can take over a game like we've seen with bogdanovich so far in his career By donna vicenza three level score herders is more so just the a three point shooter. Both those guys do have some playmaking ability I think Bogdonovich is more proven and Has a higher ceiling when it comes to me and a secondary planemaker next Young so if they ended up getting bogdanovich..

"I think that's a really interesting way to look at what Atlanta could do in the off-season. I really I really like the idea of that Fleet there. I don't know how you feel about that Andrew. But I think that'd be a great fit is too small to have the backward exit tray. Like I know he's in his Defender to put it under though. Yeah, but I mean you want him guarding once you can guard up a little bit but I think you'd rather have somebody like a De'Anthony Melton who's much longer than Friday's like so I I just I know like what are your thoughts on that fit Andrew? He's someone that I think does fit. Well, he's a very good shooter like you mentioned. He's a good Defender. I just think that you're I mean, he's another guy. He's not a restricted free agent, but offered to get you know Toronto to effectively back down. I think you're gonna have to really pay up for him. Like I I think at least you know, the Broadband deal is, you know, sort of provides them her the parameters for one thing. I think Brogden makes like around twenty two million something like that for a year and I can see him even getting up to 25 million per year and I would kind of hesitate to pay that he's had issues with injuries and he's a dog Regard so he's done with it. I mean obviously makes sense on paper like a secondary ball-handler a scooter and Defender. I just don't think I'd want to you know pay a hundred million dollars for Fred vanfleet. I mean, he definitely would make them better but my concerns to be that your your your building like a 4C, you know or a v c o something like that as opposed to like a true Contender, but he does make sense and they should consider him at least on some level. What would be the number you're like as willing to go for him? Like per year. I'd walk away at eighteen. Probably. I feel like that's just my opinion. I don't think I would want to go too much higher than that. Yeah, I mean if you could do like over four eighty something like that and that would be fine. He just you know, I would just prefer to pay less and get a younger player. Exactly offensively. I mean that's definitely not the offensive player than bleed. But someone that still has you know some upside to be sort of like an Eric Bledsoe type player someone like that. It just makes a lot of sense that would probably prefer to go that route as supposed to pay, you know top dollar for a free agent like pencil who is very good. Like he's a Top fifty player probably in the league in my opinion. I just I wouldn't want to make too much of an investor him. Yeah. Yeah, that's fair. I you know, it's it's always on what the front office like, are they going to try to shoot for the ceiling or they going to are they content with middling in the middle of the back East? Hope things break right? I mean, that's just I mean you go without a whole Rabbit Hole there with you know, small-market teams and all that. But exactly if you if you guys don't have anything else left on free agents I concur Talk a little bit about the draft..

"But when you know, it's guys that are his teeth, you know, like Kevin huerter guys that are young like that. I think it's harder for him to delegate and that can also work to impair her because she's not getting as much time on the ball to develop as you might need, So I think it's kind of a challenge. I think you can definitely build a very effective offense around straight and he's already one of the best offensive players in the league. Oh know if you can pick out really any office symmetric that you want you stop sending that metric so and that's crazy, you know for a second year player to already be that effective. So I definitely think you can build an offense. It's all in on him just have students around him have the necessary bigs that you need to execute a pick-and-roll. It's going to help but I do think to win it. Like the highest level is like I do agree that It ultimately comes down to having more talent and Thursday. Will necessarily entail like delegating, you know, allowing other players have time with the ball things like that. So yeah, I think it always comes down to the recruiting types of players that he's willing to share with if that makes sense. Yeah. No that totally makes sense. So unless you had anything else to add I'm ready to move into the offseason. Now, I completely agree with Andrew when you have you know, Talent Thursday, we're close to trade, offensively on that team. No other you know, reliable source of offense outside of maybe Kevin huerter heliocentric is kind of what you have to do, you know, if you don't do that, they probably would have lost even more games. Maybe it would help develop a few guys little quicker, but I don't know if they're in the business of that which you know, kind of brings us into the offseason where the rumors are there gun. They're looking to acquire like wind down players not win now is in like super old veteran one now, but they're ready to spend they want to speed up this rebuilding process cuz I'd listen they just about four years. Teams in a league that have a ridiculous amount of money to spend they're all in the East off course Atlanta Detroit Charlotte and the Knicks I believe. Yeah. In fact, I think Atlanta's two biggest needs are probably secondary Creator. I just another ball head of the sorts of to me is reliable. There has to be a bench and I think they need shooting. They fouled shooting suit. They were dead last in 3-point percentage last season at 33% outside. Tray heard of John Collins. The shooting is super streaking inconsistent with reddish gets hot. He was there too. But everything else was just walk, you know, including Trey and heard they were both shrieking Shooters as well, you know, and I think a reliable another ball-handler and more shooting is there probably the biggest needs. So before I let you speak and I wanted some that. I'm really excited about with Atlanta just because I enjoy like the little cap minutiae things that are fun. I mean with only fifty nine million dollars locked up in this next year, which is crazy Dimension dead. But I think the Hawks I don't want to say that they're going to completely set the tone for free agency. But you look at you know oftentimes in free agency. You'll have one guy. So I think like this year wage..

"We have to say? He's an offensive Superstar like this kid's a top three top five offensive talent in the league and his defense like you mentioned a lot of time. I know you mentioned black guy like Kemba Walker who was also small like him, but he tries, you know what it makes a difference. He's out there taking charges of times and it does make a difference. Whereas he got a crayon doesn't try paging the same time, you know, you gotta give them better for the job because I mean look what they've been surrounding trade with like it's all like they're giving him defensive Stoppers all over the court. So, you know, let's see sure. He's a leader and him trying to be you know, pump up the rest of the team and you know, kind of get them get their juices flowing, but he I don't know he can't try especially on that team that he was last year and he tries on defense. I mean listen they had a dog 111 offensive rating mature on on the court when he was off. That's a hundred. He can't try on defense cuz when he's on the court that offensive ratings and dip like he just doesn't have the energy for that. Cuz last season was all they had to create any sort of reliable off and so, you know, I think I hate giving him excuses. But you know, I'm I've been giving him excuses all season for defense that I at this point in his career. I just took care of them is a terrible Defender to be honest. I blame the gods of heliocentrism. Really quickly back to what you said about Millsaps. He's somewhere that he's like my one of my favorite Atlanta Hawks Everest. So that definitely touch base is near and dear to my heart. I think he still lives in Atlanta. I could be wrong about that. But I believe he does he was definitely someone I would have been too interested in but the like his playing the in the bubble does. Yeah, I really age. Yeah, I could drop off like that does worry me? I'm I'm not going to hold that entirely against them It's just tough for an older player. I think to have to deal with that lay off, but that that would kind of consider me their butt off back to Trey. I think it's really just about moving from like arguably the worst offender in the league to like the bottom ten percent, you know, you know from like 0% I also like 10% off or somewhere around there. Like there's you know degrees of difference and Badness and I do think if you actually look at his break down defensively throughout the year if you look from January like the starting job January all he had the same defensive tipm his name lowered and I'm not saying that he's like the same caliber, you know, he's he's not as good defensively insert as they not the Danes good but he does not have Ruben bro. So I think like the Kemba Walker kind of compare. Like I think that is sort of the model that you want..

Our partnership and Chelsea haven't put out any news stories confirming this I keep checking the fifth sand up I. Don't see it on there, so there's no, there's no club statement. We can only trust credible reporters, Chris Wittingham so. Floor is yours too I mean if they're not educated on what's going on with team Oh verner by now. You've come to the right place. Because Chris is going to catch you up real quick, and then I will flail wildly in exuberance over this potential signing as first reported by the Daily Telegraph. Since confirmed by the athletic, The Guardian, the BBC among many other outlets Chelsea a reportedly agreed on a deal with Red Bull Leipzig on the release clause for team. Oh verner, the striker and second top. Top Scorer in the Bundesliga. They're reportedly paying a release clause of around fifty three million pounds to get this player. This release clause actually renegotiate I. Learn this because he was due to go to Byron Munich actually told all his teammates at Leipzig going to buy Helix, said goodbye, the whole thing and when Byron decided they're going to go for other players. They renegotiated the contract and inserted. Inserted this very low relative to his quality release clause of fifty three million pounds, sixty million euros, and so it was long thought that Liverpool was team Oh. Verners desired destination Liverpool have decided that they're not going to be spending any money in this transfer window, so Chelsea led by Frank Lampard Antonio Ruediger Marina Greenwich Have Convinced Him Earner that Chelsea. It's a club for him. They're prepared to. To pay the full release clauses opposed to anything less than that, and so in all likelihood, according to media reports team Oh verner off to Chelsea and Chris as you mentioned his goal. Scoring record in the Bundesliga is outstanding. In fact, no Bundesliga player has been responsible for more goals assists angles, then team over now. Part of that might be because Erling Haaland got a little bit later. Also, drink yet to those fans set. But he Mo. Verner is obviously a phenomenal player. And he is versatile. And when you're starting to look at the name Chelsea linked to which we'll get to that in the second, the names that they are starting to get healthy on this. Rosser likes of Zeke Pulisic. Who's versatile now you have team verner. Who can play on the left? WHO's a converted winger up top? You have options now up top Tammy Abraham get some challenge. There's a potential return to strikers up top Griz. which as you know has me very excited versatility youth. An attacking side that is potent, and is as formidable as some of the teams that occupy the top two slots presently in the premier, League Chris Wittingham. You're right in that position.
