"The show, it's good friend of the program. Adam spinella. One of my favorite human beings that does basketball content. On the Internet, Adam, what's going on, buddy? How are things? What it do, baby, so good to be here with you. Nothing going on in the basketball world in July, right? Just free agency and summer league and everything else known to me. Peach jam FIBA out there for the youth tournaments, U 17 wrapping up a few days ago. Just a lot of basketball, a lot of fun with it, but a lot to discuss. And I'm very appreciative of you having me back on here to be someone to break down a lot of what's going on. Well, we've also got like Gigi Jackson news who now, it looks like it's probably a 2023 draft prospect, as opposed to 2024. We've got Deandre ayton going live now. We have Kevin Durant trade rumors. We have Donovan Mitchell like it seems like trade rumors that are like live right now as opposed to the Durant ones which seem a bit more dormant based on the way that it started. Oh yeah, by the way, we got hockey. Look at this. Send me Crosby. Really good at hockey. He's saved hockey in Pittsburgh again. By making sure that the team signed evgeny malkin. So let's go. We're rolling, baby. But let's talk about Deandre. Because the Deandre news, we're recording this Thursday night, Adam's time. It is currently Friday morning. This is going to go live on Saturday morning in the United States. Deandre ayton just signed his max is max offer sheet with the Indiana Pacers within ten minutes, the Phoenix Suns leaked that they are matching, basically. So let's all of this is done now. And that's the important part. All of this is done. And all of this is now put to rest for at least 6 months. Until January 15th is the date that Deandre can be traded. I would imagine they're going to try and bring them back into the fold and act like nothing happened here. What is your reaction first and foremost to the way that the Phoenix Suns handled this? Because I think that we understand the logic behind why they handled it this way. I just don't know that I agree. So let's just get open thoughts on the table first. What is your reaction to the way the Phoenix Suns have handled the Deandre ayton contract negotiations? It's just been a strange year, Sam with Deandre ayton and the saga going there because I thought he was fantastic in the NBA Finals last year and moving into the summer where there's contract negotiations for an extension. I figure, you know, you want to maximize Chris Paul's remaining years. Keep Devin Booker happy by keeping the other best young prospect in player that you have on your roster and locking him up long term. And now is the time to go in and double down on that core. And they just didn't want to pull the trigger. I'm not as intimately involved with what we hear in the media is legitimate. What isn't? I don't know how much of it is smoke and how much of it is actually fire.

"So I bring it up because as I look at the league and especially the Western Conference, the two LA teams aren't going to miss the playoffs again. Lakers and clippers, Denver, if they're healthy, they're going to be really good. There'll be some drop off, like, say, Utah, for example, won't be as good. But New Orleans is a young up and coming team with Zion Williams from the roster. Memphis, obviously, has the unfortunate injury to Jaron Jackson junior to start the year, but they're young and talented. So I bring it up because those windows are so fleeting. And when you have a 37 year old point guard going on 38 and Chris Paul, who's one of the all time greats and is defied the odds and the aging curve and all that to a historic level, how long can he keep doing that? How long can he be that guy and when Chris Paul is no longer that guy is a team led by Devin Booker and Michael bridges without Chris without theoretically anyways Deandre ayton? Are they good enough to win a championship? I hope so because I love those guys and I'm biased. They're like my sons, but I probably have my doubts about whether they are or not. So that's the tough part. I think whenever you have a chance to compete for championships, you have to take advantage of it. And then also try to keep that window open as long as you can. And then so for me, full bias disclosed with Booker's age and bridges age and 8 and age, I thought and hoped they'd have a longer runway than it seems like they will, but maybe the sun surprises us and match the offer sheet and they are together for the next four or 5 years, but we shall see. Yeah, and if they don't, they still have the fact of not having a center, basically. Biz Mac biombo is not starting to play in 38 minutes a night, I don't think. And JaVale McGee is already going to Dallas. So what do they have left? What are their options in mid July, having waited this long to for this thing to resolve itself? So I don't know, it feels to me like in the moment and again, they've made a lot of good moves the last couple of years. They may have some other plan that we are not privy to and it may manifest in the next couple of days. But as of right now, it looks like they have kind of screwed themselves. All right, moving on to a couple other couple of the teams in situations before I let you go. I was going to ask you, as I was typing up some notes about 24 to 27 hours ago, the jazz having traded Rudy Gobert, having ripped off the band aid having decided this is not going any further than it's gone. It's time to try something new. They're still sitting there with Donovan Mitchell putting out the kind of the messaging out there. They're like, oh, no, no, they're ready to hold on to Donovan Mitchell. I was always skeptical of that and then lo and behold, sometime yesterday afternoon report coming from the athletic that or from, I think, from ESPN. The first report was ESPN saying that there's a possibility or they're not deflecting or they're not turning away offers or whatever. And then it became the athletic saying they're engaged directly with the Knicks, the jazz. Knowing that there's always a fair amount of smoke before we see fire in this league and things can change very quickly. It might change by the time I hit stop on this recorder even.

"Said, I think it's cool because it reminds us that this game is about much more than just the NBA as a business. It is, we get it. But there's so much more to this. So wherever Deandre ayton ends up, this is a huge moment for him. Absolutely. Yeah, and I'm better now, but I was just thinking about Deandre and his mom, growing up in The Bahamas, moving to Phoenix, moving around different high school teams, AAU teams, some of the controversy at Arizona, the path that he has taken to get to this point, a $133 million. And with that combined for his rookie scale, I'd have to look at the exact numbers Howard, but he's going to make well over a 150, $160 million before he approaches his late 20s. So he could get another contractor too and be well north of $300 million in career earnings by the time his career duns Devin Booker is at that level, we'll see what happens with Mikel bridges. Yeah, so that's the cool part of it. I mean, should I remember Devin was 18 when we brought him in the youngest player in the draft class in 2015? We probably weren't very smart. We brought him off the bench at first behind our blitz over in a night. Some of these guys played them slow played him and by the time he got in the starting lineup, the rest is history. So to watch his ascent, bridges runner up for defensive player of the year, got that $90 million deal. I remember I told the story before, but I'll tell it again briefly, one of the worst best and worst moments combined to my NBA career was having to call Mikkel bridges on the night of the 2018 draft and inform him that he was not actually a Philadelphia 76er that he was not going to stay in Philadelphia, worried one, two national championships at Villanova, where his mom worked for the 76ers franchise that he was actually coming a couple thousand miles to the southwest to the Phoenix Suns. And to his credit, he and his mom and everybody around them, Sam goldford, agent. They handled the great.

"To the pacers piece of this and I want to come back around to the suns and kind of how we got here element of this. But let's talk about the nets for a minute since you brought that up. This would seem to, well, one, this definitely looks like Deandre ayton's camp Bill Duffy and his group are kind of forcing the issue here. Listen, we've waited long enough. We've given you guys some time to figure out sign and trade possibilities Kevin Durant possibilities multi team possibilities or whether or not you even want to just sign him yourself and bring him back period. This is speeding things up and it's just bringing things to a head. And as you know, there's not much time now to go fashion some multi team deal where the nets get something if the nets has been kind of messaged through the media aren't interested in ayton with an 8 and could still go sign and trade somewhere else. You've moved these pieces around. It doesn't look like that's going to happen, Ryan. It looks like that's off the table. So the first big loser in this whole thing, it seems like would be Kevin Durant, who wants to go to the suns and the nets getting a team taken off the board potentially. Now, I could reverse that and say that it's a win for the nets because they could say just Durant, sorry. We tried, there's nothing there now, because if they match, as you say, can't be traded until January 15th. If they don't match and he's a pacer, what else did the sons have left? Even if you were saying the sun's recoup some picks in a sign and trade from the pacers, will those picks could help sweeten a deal with the nets, but the nets want to stay competitive. So Mikhail bridges and picks and what? Like even ayton and bridges was perceived to not be enough, is bridges and cam Johnson and some picks enough. I don't see it. So tell me if I'm wrong, but it seems to me that this has just thoroughly screwed with all these options about Durant and the sons and one solution for the nets coming off the board. No, you're right. One other mitigating factor is as far as an in season trade. Deandre ayton can not be traded from the Phoenix Suns if the sun's matched the offer sheet to 20 18s until January 15th. But he can't be traded in the Indiana Pacers for one year. So it's not like they could match and then say, well, why don't they work out a deal between January 15th and the trade deadline in season? Sure. They can't with the pacers. It has to be the earliest next off season, which, as you know, Howard in this league, how quickly things change. And one calendar year. So it's complicated.

"So it seemed clear for a while that there was a divide here between suns front office slash ownership and Deandre ayton and his representation. Based on all of that, I have to believe that they're not going to match. I have to believe that of the three possible outcomes here, that one's off the table and it's either they decline and he walks away for nothing which would be shocking and self defeating and frankly stupid. Or they figure out the sign in trade, which at least recoups some sort of assets. I don't know what I haven't looked recently with the pacers have. They just waved a bunch of guys in preparation for this, but those were not guys who would have been essential to a trade I don't think anyway and actually I guess they couldn't have been aggregated again anyway. Also. But we have two options left, Ryan. Do you think there's any chance that the sun's pull off? Like I said, I'm taking the match off the table. I don't think they're matching. I could be wrong. Do you think that they figure out a sign and trade? And how willing would even be in his camp be to that at this point given how long the sons have kind of slow walked this or indicated a lack of interest. I mean, ayton has no incentive. And just to be clear before I throw this back to you, for people who've been following the legal long time. There was a time when a guy with bird rights could get the extra year and the extra raises by participating in a sign in trade. There's now basically zero incentive for a player to participate. These are some ancillary stuff. But there's no financial incentive for Deandre to participate in a sign and trade. So given all that, again, what do you expect the outcome is going to be now? So the sons were the only team in the league, Howard, who could have given Deandre ayton a 5 year contract. They're at a max level or sub max level, as far as I understand, that was not offered. So then it comes down to a four year contract with the sons versus a four year contract with somebody else in Indiana. Clearly feels like this guy's a max player. They value him at that level. I know the pacers are excited about their young core, led by tyrese Halliburton, they acquired from Sacramento last year and then a Benedict Mather in the wing they got from university of Arizona. So they think 8 will be a terrific front court fit along those guys. And to me, Howard, where this should end up is a sign and trade. Were the sons get some value back because for ayton, the contract is the same, whether he signs the offer sheet and the sons don't match or the sons do match. The contract's the same. It's the same contract in a sign and trade. And so what the sign and trade does is it guarantees that Deandre ayton is an Indiana pacer. It takes the matching option off the table. One thing to keep an eye on is I believe the pacers have all of their own future first round picks. They also have an additional first round pick that they got from the Boston Celtics in the Malcolm Brogdon trade recently. So those could be in play, their own picks. And sometimes teams get creative with the picks, the best of the worst of depending on the negotiation. So I imagine that's what's happening now between the pacers and sons. That's what should happen. At least over the next X number of hours here before 8 and officially signs the offer sheet.

"Yeah, we'll see. Let's get into that actually. So we've talked about how something needs to give in the NBA. Something needs to shift the status quo because right now everything's been just deadlocked, right with this Kevin Durant thing. Even seeing like Colin Sexton, just sitting out there just stuck, right? Nothing happening. I don't know what the ripple effect from this 8 in situation is going to be. I guess it depends. I can do other teams get pulled in or not. Where other teams trying to be in on the 8 and situation and now they're not. So now they're going to look at other options. What happens here? But this could, this has the potential to be that thing that suddenly clears this log jam or opens things up enough to where we start to see more movement and the stagnation left. Now, Kevin Durant would be a clear thing that would open things up again and get things and get things moving. But I do wonder if this is enough to at least shake some things loose and restart the NBA off season, so to speak. Yeah, yeah, I mean, that's exactly what we've been saying for a while. It's like there's like a clog in the pipeline here. We need something to come through, hid it and push all the rest of this through because now we're sitting with KD, Kyrie, now dawn of the Mitchell. We're going to get to him in just a minute here. But Eden's for restrictive free agent market. Colin Sexton. Early miles bridges out of that because that's a whole different situation with that. But yeah, well, we'll see where that goes. I'm sure we have a super chat coming in. Yeah, super chat from Samir says the report about Phoenix wanting to match can that be a negotiation strategy. We see teams do this a lot where they will kind of let it be known that they'll match any offer as a way of scaring off other teams from actually presenting that offer. So yes, this can be, again, there's not as much teeth to it as there would be if that was getting out there on say July 1st or July 2nd when there's free agents still on the market to be had. But yes, that type of statement kitting out there or word getting out there can 100% be a negotiating strategy. Yeah. Now one thing I will say with a Kevin Durant trade here, as we're talking about him, if ayton is off the table, it becomes really hard done for the sons to make a KD trade because he was going to be a portion of that. I believe if I have this correct, I think I've run the numbers right on this. 8 and bridges, even with the base share compensation issues, would have been enough if Brooklyn could get around the hard cap issues of acquiring a player vice trade. So it would have had to do some different stuff. So we'll see how that comes together there. But yeah, it is what it is. With that one. So yeah, let's see how that all comes together over the next couple of days. Really the next few hours here if eating signs the offer sheet done. That's all null and void, so that won't happen that way.

"There's always a chance it could expand. You could have something where the sun's this guy no longer really fits with us. What do you think about this deal? And then you send this back to us or something like that. I've seen people's annual, what if it was, buddy healed involved in J crowd or in somebody we're headed off to the other way. I think Jay Crowder and Landry shamit, one of the players thrown out their not recommended with thrown out there. So we'll see. I was hoping that that ping was in. It's that time of year, where every time you hear something go off, you rush and you check it out, but that was not it. I was hoping. I was hoping. But yeah, so I'm not sure where this is going to go for now. I think we'll see in the next couple of days, wouldn't surprise me if it's made into a bigger deal where there's more pieces moving around or it could be very simple and straightforward. But I think Indiana now really makes the most sense as the landing spot for 8. Well, let's assume this goes down. Miles Turner for Deandre ayton, the next guy we need to talk about is Kevin Durant. What does this mean for the sons and their pursuit of Katie? I don't know that it really changes all that much to be quite honest. I think a lot of people went initially to oh, Deandre ayton, but there were just a million challenges with 8 and going to Brooklyn. One is, again, there's that base here compensation stuff. Duran obviously makes way more money. Then there's also the hard cap issues because that would trigger the hard cap and the nets are way, they can't even see it anymore. They're so far past the hard cap line. So I think we're in a position where that one never really felt all that realistic just from a salary cap mechanics side. And then we start again reports that nets weren't really that high on bringing in ayton, which I guess would maybe make sense and they did just resign Nick claxton to a nice contract about 17 million or so 20 million if he hits a couple bonuses. So I think what we're going to see there is if that deal still gets done, there are other avenues towards it. It might mean a three for one kind of trade or something like that. But that's part of it and we're hearing through the reports again, Brian windhorst. I believe this was on the hoop collective, but I think you did touch on it on a get up as well. We've heard woj mentioned it is in passing two or in reporting is that it's the market is just not necessarily what the nets thought it would be for KD. They thought there was going to be, hey, we're going to get this massive return and let's go. And I think there's just a lot of complications that I just don't know that some teams are really ready to meet in a Kevin Durant, Kevin Durant trade. I'm going to keep doing the Kevin Garnett. I don't know why. I just have a mental block on that. It's okay. It's okay. It's right up there with how many times we were calling. And now we can do it, but we kept saying this summer when we were dealing with COVID years and it wasn't really the off season in the summer and all that. Exactly, yeah. Yeah, it was like right. That's what it's going to be.

I don't know. You tell me that the hawks could be you could do Trae Young dejante Murray Deandre hunter John Collins, miles Turner. Yeah? That's a fun team. That's a really fun team. The top of the east is so good though now. You've got to kind of you got to make a pretty ballsy move. If you're Atlanta, or you just have to slow play it a little bit more, which I feel like they push the button too fast. Where maybe they could have had a better draft pick. In a year, last season other than, but I don't know. I don't love what they've done. Getting all these players that kind of raise their floor a little bit too fast. I think you've got to let it marinate a little bit. Deandre does fit the age timeline for Trey and Dijon, though. In Deandre hunter, which is yeah, he does. And they're all mature enough to wear their past the youth of it all. Which is interesting. Yeah, now, if I was Atlanta, I think I agree with you. I'd go for Deandre. But yeah, the fact that Deandre ayton has struggled this much to get like $30 million a year is kind of baffling to me, especially given the way that the money is supposed to rise in the next couple of years due to TV contracts. Yeah, I was going to say this Mac contract is not going to look like a max and three years. Yeah, it's a minimax. It's a 25% max. It's bizarre. Yes. These are the times that you get guys on max contracts. And you feel very good about it. Yes. Pay the money. Robert sarver for the love of God just pay the money. Like, I just don't own the team anymore. I mean, I'm sure I know that sun's fans have been beating that drum for however long. He's on the team, but you hate that to be the reason why teams don't make it. Or that players don't get signed. Because of ownership, like those are the worst situations in the MBA. Maybe it's not maybe James Jones just doesn't have faith in Deandre anymore. Or maybe like the core pieces have been like, we don't we don't love Deandre anymore. I don't know that. I'm speculating on potential other reasons. It could be based on. The Phoenix. Deandre ayton. Right. I'd almost rather be that situation where it's like personality wise, this isn't going to work. It's just too baffling to me. Otherwise. And Deandre, it seems like it's just like a dude that like hang out and play video games and like, seems like a pretty good dude. So I don't know. Maybe he's like ready to move into a bigger role. I get that, but you're going to be able to move into a bigger role. Because this Chris Paul team's almost I could not last forever. He's 37. Yeah, no. I agree. It's weird. Andrew, we've gone for an hour, 15, I don't really want to go much longer than this. Tell the people what's going on. Tell the people where they can find you.

"That feeling that we had in 2021 about him. Well, two other pieces here. One is Phoenix is a 129 million before they deal with 8 and next year. Caps one is going to be one 22. They'll be in the luxury tax. They have Booker making 34 next year and 36th year after. They have bridges at 21, 22, 23, 25. They have CP three at 28.4 next year, 30.8 the year after that. They're paying Crowder Sarge pain and shim it. A combined 35 million Johnson coming up in a year. So you have a financial opportunity to try to get 8 and from them because I just don't think server is going to pay money like that. Now who knows if he's the owner of the year, but he's shown the history he's never going to do it. That's one thing. Two is that because of how the season ended for them and especially with what Dallas did to them. You're kind of catching them at a good time. It's like the guy who just had a fight with his fiance and then might not get married. And you ask him, what's going on? I never want to talk to her again, and then two days later, it might be fine. You're catching them at the party. I never liked her. Don't say if that ever happens, don't tell your friend, I never liked her until you're sure the wedding's off. Now I'm doing life advice. Don't ever tell your friend. It's 100 for a hundred. You're right. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. But you know, actually, we fooled around, so I'm glad this is over. But guess who I evaluate and against in a series against jokic? Embiid? Giannis? Anthony Davis? It's not like just you still need a guy. You still like, you need two things now. You need an ayton and you need a 5 that's a small 5. Because you're going to have, it's like that Williams kind of different level of a video game, where you go, okay, I get to change out my shields here. I overreacted last week. I was like, wow, I don't know what to think of it anymore because of what Dallas just did to him. And I think it was a reaction I regret it. Anyway, all right, so if you're Orlando, your way under the cap in the first pick in the draft. You have Wendell Carter, who our guys to Rudy, who's not here today, but he really likes Wendell Carter was on an awesome contract. 14, 13, 12, 10.9, the next four years. Orlando could just take jabari Smith and then trade Wendell Carter, you know, maybe just its window Carter for 8, maybe it's Carter and Anthony for 8 and campaign. Whatever it is, and then they look at it and they're like, we have jabar Smith and Deandre ayton now with suggs and with Franz and we have our teams ready to roll. I'd probably keep Carter. I'd probably not do that if I were them because I like that Carter contract and I'm not sure there's that much of a difference with them to pay 8 and twice as much..

"8 inside, the understanding will be, hey, if we're going to do a sign and trade, I want that max offer. That's what he wanted last year. Didn't get it. Willing to go there. If they sign and trade him, you've got to find a team that's willing to give him that backs offer and then his willing to give stuff to the sons in exchange in a sign and trade type deal. It'll be interesting to see if anybody just throws out a full max like the spurs or someone like that throws out a full max offer. And what the sun's doing in that scenario, but I think going in, the suns will have a good idea of what's going to happen. And so I think the most likely outcome here is now a sign and trade that sends him somewhere else. And complete agreement, I think that's where it's going to go because I don't think the sons have any desire to just let him leave for nothing. So even if it's, let's just say the Detroit Pistons who project have the most cap space go all in on an offer sheet. I think Phoenix would match it if for no other reason to retain control of the asset. So what I think is potentially likely here, different players, different situation, but remember when Malcolm Brogdon left the box for the producers, he agreed to that deal with the pacers and then the buck said, hey, we're not let's not mess around with an offer sheet. Let's make this a sign and trade and get this done. So we don't have to go through all the jumping through all the offer sheet hoops of we're going to make you wait and all this stuff will make it a sign and trade. Mutually beneficial for both. That's kind of how I now expect us to play out. For the suns is it'll be our you pick your spot and as long as something works, it's not going to be doing it and we get back for crappy contracts for him or something. They're not going to do that. But yeah, but if they can get into a position to do that and then get it into a spa where it is going to be mutually beneficial in the sun skin can get back something there. I think they'll do because I think too if you're the songs, Deandre ayton is really, really good. Don't get me wrong. But I think the songs are like, hey, we did all right with JaVale McGee when he played. It is place. We did fine. We're bizmac beyond when he played in his place. You know, do we have to really go this direction? And that's where I think you get a little tricky on that one. Now, there's challenges with a sign and trade. There are things on base share compensation. Issues that can be a problem. There are things with hard caps for the team acquiring them. That can be issues. But that's all stuff that can be worked around. There, so yeah, it'll be a situation where they can make this stuff happen and get it done. So I'm with you. That was a very long way of saying, I think he is signed and traded away from the Phoenix Suns at some point this off season. What's the best landing spot for him? And I know there's 30 different 29 possibilities there..

I've been like, I love space jam when I was a kid and it's like, I don't know. I don't want that. I don't want that. Hate in my life. Cool. Tell the people where they can find you online, tell the people where they can find your work all that stuff. All right, yeah, you can find me on Twitter at Cole hoops. That's my first name, COE, hoops, PS. Also, on Instagram, you could find me there as well, even though I'm not on that much. You could read my work at the athletic, you can read my in the clippers. I do freelance work for two one three hoops, which is a little website that covers the clippers. I just finished up at franchise sports media. I finished the WNBA season, local website out here where I covered the Las Vegas aces. That was pretty fun. And then I'm going to be writing for the win. FTW again started there this week. You can find similar bed in content. That you might find on the athletic and some articles if you like that. You can follow me there as well. So I think that's probably as good as I've done on plugging myself in all my stuff. It's usually a disaster. That was perfect. You nailed it. Nailed it all. So over at the athletic, you should read Cole's preview of you did a bunch of awards previews. You did just a few thoughts, randomly, a lot of it is geared toward betting, which, fuck, this is how I live. I love it. We've done so many gambling podcasts. That's all we all live now. I've done so many gambling podcasts on this show preview and gambling season for the NBA. It will continue what's college basketball season starts. You can believe that. Go read hop onto a pod. You're welcome back soon. Trust me. So I've also written a mock draft I've done the I guess the top 59 players this year because Milwaukee, has lost their pick and forfeited it. But you can go read that at the athletic. You can go read my thoughts on the Mikael bridge's extension. You can go read I wrote about 7 breakout guys that I'm really excited about. And obviously wrote about the Deandre ayton thing that I referenced earlier. So go to the athletic, keep me employed. Keep call employed like please, subscribe over there.

"ayton" Discussed on NBA Front Office w/ Keith Smith & Trevor Lane

"Hello, everybody. Welcome and to the NBA front office show preseason as often running. We had a lot of games on the schedule last night. We're going to break down some of those. Plus, get into some news. The suns, maybe at odds with big man Deandre ayton, a lot to talk about there. Keith, let's just start with X, that's the big story of the day. The suns, not willing to give a max deal to Deandre ayden. That doesn't seem like a great look for the Phoenix. I mean, to me, this should just be automatic. I'm not overvaluing Deandre ayton here, am I? No, I mean, I'm with you on that one. I think he is worth a max in the context of guys like him, get max deals now. That's just the reality of it. If they won't do it somebody else is going to. And a lot of people have thrown my way, so then let somebody do it in restricted free agency. Well, the reality of that is, if you do that, you run the risk of them. It's probably going to be a three plus one. That you're going to match if you want to. And then you're going to lose them in at least the most after three seasons because now you've made them angry, you need to go out and take less money and just have a contract match. So I would get this done. I would not give him a player option. I would not give him the escalator language that would bump him up to 30%. But the 25% max over 5 years, get it done, then get Mikael bridges sign and now he's got your core of Booker eating and bridges locked in and you've got a Chris Paul for a couple more years. If they don't do this, this is a sign that they're not fully committed to trying to win a championship. You know, he shot, I can tell you from that first round series against the Lakers. He shot roughly a 175% from the field. It was incredible. He just did not did not miss anything. He played great. It was phenomenal. And you look at his peers, they're all getting deals right now. So of course he's gonna feel like he should also get one of those. Now you can say maybe he's not in the same tier as Luca, but look at what Michael Porter junior just got. A max and this is what gets me. I see people all the time on social media that say, oh, well, he's not really a max player. No, we're not understanding the concept of a max player well enough because we're forgetting that the guys who we see as max guys, your LeBron, Kevin Durant, the top top tier guys in the NBA. Giannis, those guys actually should be higher than a max. Just the CBA restricts them from getting more than that. So they're bargains on those contracts. They are not the only guys who get max. Max isn't given to a guy who's a generational talent. That's not what it takes in order to get to that level. So some people see max and they just assume, oh, that means the guys just this transcended superstar, but that's not really the way the max salaries work. No, not at all. It's not even close to the way it works. And that's the day like you said, that's the unfortunate thing here. The misunderstanding of, it's not a vacuum. You exist in a world where there's 29 other teams. And if one of them just one of them is willing to give him a max, then he should get the max. And let's be fully understanding. We're not talking the Luka Dončić probably young max that gets him over 200 million over the 5 years. We're talking a 172.5 million, that shake. It'll just Alexander go. I'm fine if you want to push it like he did with my competitor junior, like Denver did, and maybe do a non guarantee on the end or something like that or some language that, hey, you keep improving. But I go back to a lot of people were like, oh man, the hoxton, so good to lock up, couldn't compel it to a two year extension worth about 45 million or so. And it's not that they didn't. I think they did great to lock him up, but I'm sorry, ings younger. And giving him 6 million more, a year or so. That's fine. I have no issue with that at all. You know, cappella is now what he's 27. So he'll turn 28 right towards the end of sometime in the playoffs, maybe Alan will still be in that or not. And nobody's screaming a yelling about that, that when he's in his 30s, he should everybody's fine with him getting 22 and 23 million. Hayden just turned, I think 23. I think it is. So I just, I don't understand this if you're the songs to me if I was on fans. I would be absolutely livid. If they don't just mess around here because people are screaming, well, you know, you can't expect a team to spend that kind of money. Sure you can. Yeah. Do you want to win a championship? That's what you do. The Milwaukee Bucks just want to title what did they do? They've gone deeper into the luxury tax than they've ever gone. Before this year to try and defend it. Lakers clippers nets warriors. You don't need to get stupid like a couple of those teams and be 40 million over the luxury tax line. But tripping into the tax, that's how you win titles. You got to get it done. I mean, look, if you were to put every GM in the NBA in a room and you said, raise your hand if you would give Deandre a max. How many hands do you think go up? At least 20. Yeah. Right? And that's all that matters. That's all that matters. If he was on the market, most teams would indeed do that. Now, I will say though, he's not going anywhere. He's not going to this isn't going to get to the point where the sun say, you know what? We're just not going to give you this contract. Go ahead, hit restricted free agency, and then maybe we'll let you go. I don't think it's getting to that point. And that's maybe why this is even more confusing. You're going to regardless of what happens here. You're going to keep this guy around. Do you really want that bad vibe of? Well, we tried to strong arm you here into a contract that's based on what your peers got probably less than what you're worth? You know what? I wonder is he the guy that ten times the qualifying offer his qualifying offers 16.4 million. So it's a pretty good sized number compared to where those qualifying offers usually come in. And then he'd be an unrestricted free agent in 2023. And then he can do whatever he wants. So I wonder if he looks out and says, you're going to make me go out and sign a deal with another team that you're just going to match and then you're going to have kind of control over this process for the next few years? Nah, I'll sign the qualifying offer. I'll play it out on that. But on myself and then I'll go get paid from whoever it is I want to be with the next year. And I think the other thing is to I learned today on Twitter. A lot of people don't fully realize how good Deandre Eaton has, but also true. He's a walking double double. This guy shows up and he's 15 and ten. Every night, it's just, you know, it's kind of ridiculous that we're here. Andy's become a pretty good defender. So just you got to get this one done if you're the sons. That would be a first, wouldn't it? If a guy was to turn down big money in order to take the qualifying offer. But that's interesting. Because it hasn't happened. I don't even have that as like a thought in my head as a possibility, but you're right, if that qualifying offer is 16 million, maybe that is it. Maybe that is the path we go. And that would be disastrous for the Phoenix Suns. If that's what if that's what? Yeah, that's why you can't push this. Don't mess around. Just get it done. It's not going to it's not going to be a bad contract. You'll be fine. You know, he's going to be a top 5 to 8 center in the league for the life of whatever his next deal is. Assuming it's four or 5 years, just get it done. It's still the center position is not dead. People may make go too far with that in the NBA. So but yeah, yeah, I don't know. And I get it, you got to also think about paying Mikael bridges. And he's probably gonna push somewhere between 15 to 20 million a year as my guess. But Garrett lock it in, spend a whole bunch of money. I mean, part of the whole thing with Chris Paul was, he's only on the big contract for one more year after this. And then everything dips into being partially guaranteed. So you can get out of that if you're really need to into much cheaper money you got Cameron Payne on a nice deal. Jay Crowder's only got a year left. So you're really only looking at a huge tax bill for probably a year or two. And do it. You're a title contender. You're right there. You went to game 6 of the finals. In a two O series lead, you know, if things had gone right, you might have been able to win it, but we'll see, you know, I don't have a lot of faith that ownership is going to.

"Future. Yeah, it's to the top writers can be. I would anticipate them, you know, getting to a lot more Conference Finals and getting some finals. You know, with the next couple of years, I really do all right coach. And then lastly do you you have the songs when the series right after this today, or do you think the Bucks you make some adjustments? I have a son's, I mean, I had two sons winning it for sure offer. And, you know, I don't know how many games it's easier. Now to say after they won the first one, I would say me to be safe. I'd say this one's and six six. Yeah, absolutely size. Okay, cuz thank you so much my man, osseous, great. Thank you, you too, all righty. There goes, Kevin. Great call. Let's do, let's bring an atom. Let's see here. Adam, are you there? I'm going to got Adam, I got Dila, Saya. I got rich and Daniel, I guess in that order. As long as these things stay, in the same order, then I'll do it that way. But Adam, what's happening, man? What's up coach? Nick, how're you doing tonight? I'm doing well, how are you doing? I'm doing pretty well, as, you know, two out of fun, time watching the game. It's nice live stream. I do have a question. I just wanted to say, I know you remember me, shouting out DeAndre ayton for finals MVP before this stream. So, I'm glad that the game Chris Paul stole is twenty-twenty but I don't know if you saw the stat with him and cream. Yep. Before he, you know, switch to Islam but like I do. I do believe it. It's either him a crisp offer phones that he did if they win. Yeah. Oh listen. He was hoovering up. All those rebounds to be who's the he was anchored. They weren't getting I mean, how many offensive boards they get? They got nine. The Bucks did, I mean, I came in picture any of them at this point and maybe they probably all were gotten when he was on the bench because everything else he just grabbed. He ended up with money. 15 17. Rebounds total fifteen defense. If I mean he was just a just a vacuum down there..
