Fresh update on "ben simmons" discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP Show

"Was A flurry of activity around the week and just here in Chicago was incredible. NBA Free agency starts Tonight York six o'clock And the Bulls continued to be connected to Lonzo ball. I have to admit I've done a little bit of our I said in our story on Instagram this morning like a 90. Maybe in 1 80 on lines a little bit. I mean, a couple years ago, you know, I was arguing here with Dave McMenamin. I said, you know, he's a complete disasters. An offensive player. He goes well, I disagree. I was like, disagree. I mean, he was shooting 40% from the floor 30% from three and 40% from the free throw line. I said, Dave, I got news for I don't care how good of a pastor you are. That's a disaster off. Yeah, you can't overcoming like, Are you kidding me? I mean, you wouldn't you would have to be Michael Cooper. Tough on defense to be able to stick around the lake. But I've got to give Alonso a lot of credit. Like first of all, he's been in like nothing but dysfunctional situations. The way the whole thing started in l A. And then LeBron getting there The next year a stand been I I love the Van Gundy family. I really like having Jeff. Funny. You gotta stay away from stand man as the coach, Haven't we learned this at this point? You know, like that thing didn't go well for them down there, but I'll give Lonzo credit. In the last two years. You know, he's about a 38% 3 point shooter. Has become a much more reliable free throw shooter. I'll take him over Ben Simmons. And while that's another thing I continue to argue about with NBA fans and Bulls fans. Because while he's not the defender Ben is and he doesn't have the size, he's very capable defender and he's not afraid. Mean least, Alonso will shoot the ball. At least he's worked on his game. There is And if there is apparent work being done, right, because he has improved as a shooter so much it was our one of our young producers. The one of the young guys here who we talked about from time to time. Tyler Hockey he was in for Abdullah. Little bit. Last week, Tyler bounces around on the shows Great young kid. And he's a big NBA fan. You might not have been here the day he joked. He quipped, he goes. What does he do at practice? Does he just practice slides all day? Because he is a great defender. But like what is Ben Simmons doing for four years of practice that he can't shoot a three? Not even attempt. Some point you'd want to develop them. Take Lonzo. I'll take Lonzo Ball at 20 million over Ben Simmons at 36 Sign me up. I've made a 1 80 on Lonzo ball. I think he would help the bulls who desperately need an upgrade at point guard. I'm raising my hair. My hand in the air. Who's the kid to drafted? Stick around from Illinois? Ohio, Ohio, December? Yeah. Are we doing with him? Well, I mean, that's the plan I was going to be. Haven't we tried that with Kobe White and a few? I mean, I like the pick. Fine. But I mean, Lonzo is a little bit more capable than I owed. Assume more at this point, isn't he? I mean, I think there are I think there are things to like about Longinus. Think you would fit on the board? You tell me. You're gonna bring Lonzo in here and I heard the numbers. You were thrown around earlier. Four years. 84 years 80 million. So why did you draft I'll For the next four years and $20 million a year. What are you need a backup? You need two point guards back to back up. I mean, there. They've been connected to Derek. They've been connect. I mean, I You think I owe this to move they're going to do you want the Bulls the rollout? Iowa's I'm trying to understand the philosophy. Okay, There's got to be a philosophy that you have as you move there, picking 38 these hometown kid, and they need a point guard. Sure, I mean, Okay. But look, that's not a plan for Let's go to the playoffs with Zach and Boots next year so they could have sold the draft choice. That would have had a problem with it. No, that's stupid to that. Well, no, That's not though. What are you doing? That's my develop. Io can developing this player for you. I mean, you don't know. I mean, They haven't done it yet. We haven't gotten Alonso here. I'm not saying that the answer. I'm not saying anything You got on this bulls roster is the answer. Just what are you doing? Again. I think you're picking 38th and you needed. I mean, I'm watching somebody make a cake right now. And I'm like, okay, we're what What? What's going on? I mean, we were putting anything in here that's going to make this Why do you look better than it was? This is no secret. This has been rumored for over a year. They might not ultimately get them. New Orleans might want to do a sign and trade and like what they can get from Boston more than what they could get from the Bulls. And this is all starting out with Boston because John Hollinger from the athletic has said that, uh or not John Hollinger somebody else. Maybe it was challenger that said that Boston is hot on the tail. Don't they have the right of first refusal down there? What do you do that? Yes, Restricted free agency. Yes, but it's kind of believe that they're going to move them. Bleacher report's Jake Fisher wrote this this morning. Lonzo Ball is still expected to sign an offer sheet with Chicago except the Bulls require a few financial moves before they can extend them. The roughly four year $84 million contract that's been discussed in league circles..

Warriors Reject Sixers’ Steep Asking Price for Ben Simmons

"Sixers are asking the Warriors per keep pumping, who covers the sixties for The Philadelphia Inquirer for Andrew Wiggins, James Wiseman, the seventh pick in tonight's draft, the 14th pick in tonight's draft. And to future first round picks. So four first round picks. Wiggins and Wiseman. Basically That's six first round picks if you think about it. 7 14 to future. Wiggins was an early first round pick, and James Wiseman was just the second pick in the draft. So if you want to say, because Wiggins played in the league for a little bit hit, and he's kind of been underwhelming. Wise, but at least they're still has that potential. Even after his first season, it's basically Wiggins And five first round picks for Ben Simmons. If I'm the Golden State warriors. I'm glad they said no. And I don't think that price is going to be met for Ben Simmons.

"Their big move? Is it going to be keep Tim Hardaway Jr like so I think the biggest moves aren't so much of free agency. It's more trades, meaning it's been Simmons going to be traded. And is Kristaps Porzingis is going to be traded. And what does that look like? Because I think the Mavs need more. But if they get the right pieces, they could win the title. Lucas that good Yeah, I I said that in the first hour. I view Dallas is sort of that sneaky team that you know, we we keep looking at the shiny objects over here and and you know that Piecing some things together. I'm not sold on poor Zynga's with them. Can you? Can you trade Porzingis for Ben Simmons? So that's a really interesting one. I don't think Philly does it. I think Philly wants more. I think that would be for Dallas. It helps your defense immediately. Ben Simmons. You know, the can basically play the position he needs to play, which is like the five on offense, and I think it makes a lot of sense for Dallas. I don't think it makes enough sense for Philly. I think Philly Listen, There's a reason that all these reported trades Darryl was asking for, like four first round picks and swaps. Darryl wants Damian Lillard and the Blazers won't trade him. Damian Lillard for Ben Simmons. Then he wants to acquire the peace is necessary to then trade for Damian. Little like you don't want my player. Okay? What if you want the pieces I get for my player with Bradley. Beal is like a constellation. I do not think Ben Simmons is getting traded. By Darryl for 70 cents on the dollar. I think he's going to go. I think he's comfortable going into the season with him and waiting and seeing Good to talk to you. Good to have you back and thanks for joining us now. Absolutely, as always, great to see you guys talk to you soon. That's Nick, right? First things first co host on Fox Sports one Monday through Friday. Yeah, kind of, uh, interesting. Take on Russell. Russell Westbrook there. And what he can give you and I said, when it happened that that's a regular season move because he plays he plays hard, and if he can take the wear and tear the stress off LeBron, it's just once you get to the postseason. And you know, Nick brings up a great point. Like Joe Harris is one of the great shooters in the game. But in the playoffs He's terrible. I mean, it was Kevin Durant. And that was it. And you would have thought. Well, Joe Harris got to help mount They double Katie Joe Harris gonna hit some jumpers. He gives a no show and I don't know what to expect out of body healed. Although I think buddy healed fit with the Lakers need more than Russell Westbrook does. Probably more so when you get to the postseason, but understand this with Milwaukee if that's the the blueprint They won With Yannis down low. Mean, you did get contributions from Middleton and Holiday and Brook Lopez. And some other players, But this was about the Greek freak dominating down low how many teams dominate down low. Not many. But that's why Milwaukee one Mean Philly is trying to do this with Joelle indeed. Ben Simmons to dominate in the paint, but not many teams have that blueprint, but you also have to have the player to be able to do it in Milwaukee wisely. Listen to what I said. Don't let you dribbling the ball up the floor. I don't want you taking jumpers go down low because nobody can guard you there. I'm good. Yeah, Yeah, I get emotional, but it might only take away from that interview was the Sixers are getting Damian Lillard? Isn't that basically what? Uh what he said. He said Daryl Morey is going to acquire pieces. Course It was somewhat theoretical. But now I understand, But I understand the logic there. Yeah, that. Hey, you don't want Ben Simmons? Well, what if I get three future first round draft picks? Do you want them? Instead. That's a weird situation, though, because that's the rebuilding thing. And, you know, like, doesn't feel at this point, though. The Sixers have shot Ben Simmons so much. It would be awkward to bring him back like the fans have an expectation of something different, and I think they want something different more than they want a specific player. Couple of phone calls in here, Uh, Andrew in Atlanta. Andrew, what's on your mind today? Hi, Dan. Thanks for taking my call. Sure. Yeah. Best of the weekend was by far the U. S men's national team winning the Gold Cup final. Um many may not even be aware of what that is, but, uh, The Copycat Nations League championship, so big summer for men's soccer. The Of course.

"The phone. I don't need to sit in person. They're trying to figure out right now. I'm glad you got there. Because i was about to be like a man. He oughta they're like you your reading that from what was said. Yeah i think we started this show talking about george right like the moments matter gave you. Multiple moments was in one thousand nine points over the last three games combined like a promise with field. This is this is too strong performance in the wrong direction. I don't think that there's a comeback from this for him in philly. I just don't especially you committing to joel embiid and rightfully so. The two of them occupy the same square on the floor. It just doesn't work. Yeah who can be more permanent base. That would work with an essentially joel in be point to finger of ben simmons. Yeah after the game. It's hard to get even back in that locker room With people looking at you and they calling we. Can't you know you start to doubt starts to city and strongly when you passing up opportunity to score and you give it to somebody else because for whatever reason and everybody has their own theories as to why. He struggled shooting the ball why he won't. I think it's mentally some people think he's afraid which in the end is the same thing so it's kind of like he doesn't he's skill. That's the bigger issue. he's not. He's not trusting a fundamental skill right now. And that's something they've got to work on with saying you say that but that may not be in just maybe mitt

Fresh update on "ben simmons" discussed on ESPN Daily

"There with ben simmons. He's very much available in trade talks which is a strange thing to do for one of your all star players You know normally you say. Oh we're gonna we're gonna keep the guy we're going to keep the guy we love the guy and you know you sort of be secret about. The sixers are wide open. I mean you know. Obviously ben did not have a good finished last year but the way they've treated then they haven't treated them like they care about him. No i just. I struggle to think of another number one overall pick who's been all. Nba player all defense player. Who feels routinely more insulted in ways. That are practical and substantive and also like superficial when it comes to fans just turning on him in ways. That are kind of staggering. As i've talked to teams have had discussions about ben simmons. The the thing about is is that the the sixers are making pretty steep trade demands. They want multiple young players two or three first round picks and pick swaps. Basically the james harden deal. That's the kind of package they want for. Ben simmons but is value. Wasn't there right now. And so when. I talked to teams what they say is offers or the counter offers. The for the seventy sixers are making are so aggressive and heavy. you know it's like I come up and knock on your door and pablo and say hey a to buy your house and you say sure. Twenty five million dollars. I mean you know. Did you make me an offer to buy your house you did. But you're not really interested in selling. This is where. I'm trying to read between all of these lines. Because that suggests to me. That daryl morey may not want to do the thing that everybody else wants him to do seemingly immediately well if this was nba one. Oh one you would say. Even if you're not happy with the guy and you wanna trade him you would not do things to reduce his value. You like make them available all over the week. You would say we love. Ben simmons. we think he's making strides. We had a great season last season. And we get another year under doc rivers and he's going to be better and you know by the way forget about he's not available but they're maury is a guy who operates three or four steps ahead and he doing this for a reason. I haven't quite figured it out yet. But he's got some game plan is trying to accomplish. And the other thing about daryl. That he proves in houston is that he doesn't care if he offends players and he also has no problem. Lie the media on the record a. And so like he could come out tomorrow and gil the press conference and say we're not trading ben simmons. I wouldn't blame him for a sec. This is the way darlas operated for a long time. Everybody is available brian. I remember him and again. I really liked darryl love when he comes on the pod. I remember when darryl courted carmella need to houston by putting on their big screen. A photoshop carmelo anthony picture where he was wearing number seven. Which happened to be the number of jeremy lin who was still on the rockets right and like right now. I'm pretty soon here. I expect the joel. Embiid is going to negotiate. He's eligible to get a supermax contract extension and so they have to operate under the circumstances that they've got to get your well locked up and so it's a very strange dance that they're playing it really is and frankly you know. I don't want to tell too many tales but there was very aggressive and active on a lot of other of their players from what i understand is well. His goal is to make his team as good as it could be. And so you have this team. That was number one in the east in the regular season and then collapsed. Infamously for a number of different. The question though is how you get your team to be better than that one. And if you're doing that game it seems to me like you're incentivized to wait and you're incentivized to way because there is one player to me. That is concretely. An upgrade over a ben simmons caliber type player. And that's damian lillard. So what are you hearing as dame is with you in tokyo about what his future with lasers is looking like right now and whether the sixers might be involved in that since i've been covering tina say which is three and a half weeks or so four weeks damon's head to deny rumors of him demanding a trade on three different occasions which is done on the record. Now do i believe the dame is absolutely one hundred percent. Happy is committed to the blazers in the last few years. i know. i don't believe that. I believe he's thirty. One years old questioning where he wants to spend the back of his prime. I think that there are teams out there. That are absolutely they have a break. Glass in need of emergency trade offer for bradley beal. Four damian lillard. Maybe even ben simmons and maybe that is what darryl is doing is having talks but not really having talks as he waits for a player that he really wants to come available instead of negotiating with guys that he doesn't want he understands that this is a very valuable asset regardless with anybody thinks ben simmons is a great player under long term contract with no outs. That's very well could be again. And he's playing right now. Yeah he's a great player who was also driving me fairly insane. Contemplating all of these possibilities and one other thing. We just got word about. Brian is that coli. Leonard is opting out of his contract. He's becoming a free agent of the wo. Zhe is reporting that the expectation will be. They don't negotiate a new deal to stay with the clippers. Which if true and stay with me here. That needs chris. paul. And kyle lowry. Are these two free agent. Domino's that look ready to tip everything else over so what is up with those point. Guards what are we hearing about. Kyle lowry and chris paul. I would like to be kyle lowry financial planner because he is about to get an enormous contracts and to this day as good as messiah. Jerry was building that team getting them championship. I do not understand what he was doing. The trade deadline last year. But kyle lowry has now become a very desired commodity. Not just because teams want point guards. But because chris paul teams out there saw paul could do for a young team. There was sort of in the middle and he completely elevated the sons. And so if. You can't get chris paul which i believe. He's going stand. Phoenix kyle. lowry is the next best thing. And there's a number of teams that are sort of in the middle that are looking to be elevated upwards especially with young players kyle will probably be the biggest free agent domino not because he's the best player available but because there's teams are so aggressive with him that he makes a choice for the money to start flowing so the three teams that we believe are the most serious contenders of the dallas mavericks. The new orleans. Pelicans and the miami heat And so what has become a key point in the negotiations. What i understand is that kyle would like three years. Guaranteed which is an ask for a guy who's had some injury problems in his the that age but he's so in demand he may be able to get it teams who might make an offer to him that in lieu of giving him that third year give him really big salaries in the first two years like like. I think he's probably looking for something in the neighborhood of thirty million a year so a three year ninety million s contract if maybe even towards one hundred so instead of doing that maybe you give him thirty seven or forty million the first two years and say how about we forget about that third year. So that is where the negotiations going to be but i definitely think new orleans i definitely think dallas. I definitely think miami are in it. There's probably some others you know that. He the knicks bounce around. Of course he could stay with the raptors raptors could resign of were sign and trade him somewhere else. So lowry is a big domino. And he should the next time he sees chris. Paul give him adapt and maybe even a giant hug. Because you know deal with a copy cat league and they're trying to copycat a commodity that is rare and it fits with kyle. Lowry is and as a thirty five year. Old myself the idea that in the nba at age thirty five former twenty fourth overall pick you can go and get a three year deal for nine figures. Wow that is the chris. Paul more than a hugging edge man and i think chris paul is going to be in the same. I don't know what will get worked out in phoenix or elsewhere. But if chris paul sits there and watch kyle lowry get thirty plus million. He's gonna want it to and that's what the market's going to bare and there are teams out there that really want that type of player and phoenix wants to keep that player so grind before i let you go here like how do you stay up to be on top of all of this because right now as we talk your. You should be asleep in tokyo right out but clearly like nba news. It's about to get pretty intense as allegedly free agency begins for the first time in earnest. Here today well. When i wake up which means i've slept through the mill is day Us i take a deep breath. Before i pick up my phone. I have no idea what it is gonna. I wake up pretty early. I've noticed thing on the social media. The guys who are active love the players are tweeting and liking and instagram at like five forty five. Am i mean like the players. Who are here. Like kevin durant damian lillard. But you know it's a it's a league that doesn't ever sleep. I've been on at a incredibly bizarre hours with nba personnel. And i am following it and jump. Has this fantasy special. It's like four or five hours. I need to be ready to be on it and it starts at four. Am local on tuesday. So i guess. I'll be on american hours and by the way later that day team. No safe in this in the quarter-finals. Please don't hold me to anything. I might say or do that day. Right went as always. Thank you for being both responsible and.

"ben simmons" Discussed on Get Up!

"On the plate. For ben simmons for a long time now. He's obviously had issues with shootings came into the nba and he has been very reluctant to consider this. He is he does do some things right handed. And there's some belief that maybe he's shooting with the wrong hand now. That is a a big ask of any player to make. It's especially a big ask of somebody who's prideful and resistant and if he is pride phone resistant about and it won't work but i definitely think it's something that is going to be discussed and brought to him over. This offseason remarkable. Our friend jalen rose the week that we launched this show so in april of twenty eighteen. Said right here on. Get up our friend. Roaster donnas said. He's shooting with the wrong hand. I mean jalen has been saying that literally that long so big perk twenty four year old man who's obviously played a lot of basketball in his life. Can you do that at this point. Can you change hands. No no you can't do that and look at this point. He is who he is and we were asking for too much out of him for shoot was he. He just might not be as shoulder. And that's okay changes position. Put them back to the power forward position that he brought that he played in in college at lsu as a dual would they could drop downs and facilitate for others guidance. Rolling into the basket ben. Simmons has to get his confidence back. I'm not talking about whether he could shoot. Not but just attacking pink and just finishing layoffs. And you know what. Ben simmons says to do. He has to look himself in mirror and have some type of accountability. And when i say that this off season he probably needs to take a break from social media from our distractions. Lock yourself in the gym goto isolated area and work on his game. And that's not just shooting that's overall overload finishing lay ups going through drew behan law. Three the to the basket. That's what bill simmons need now. Pages damn shoot man absolutely quickly before i move onto other things as an insider with us here magic johnson said yesterday on the show they need to trade him. Big perk suggested that he would be best off with a fresh start. What if the sixers decided they want to explore trading him how how look well they could probably trade him anywhere of ten places right now. There's a it'd be huge demand for him but not at the value of all star under a four year guaranteed out contract. So that's the challenge and the and the wildcard here greenie. Joylin beat is do a contract extension this off season at the sixers. Ask his opinion on this how he decides to answer. That question could determine the next step with ben simmons. Okay so we will see where that thing moves from here. In the meantime yesterday i had magic johnson here on the set and i asked him if kevin durant is now the best player on planet. Earth this is what magic said. Lebron got one more year to be the man in this kevin durant league right after that. You're not willing to say right now. Kevin durant is the best player in the world. I think kevin durant is the best score on this planet in the world. I think yes now. They're running neck and neck. The brand knows he's got to come back and have a great year and his lakers got to have a great year. But let's see what happens next season. How important is that. He's been the best player in the world. a longtime. how important do you think that is to him. And what do you think he's thinking as he's watching. Kevin durant this week really is very important to win. You know we got egos we. Don't we all so big perk. I'm just curious because you have been one of lebron james biggest supporters defenders. And all of that on this show since we came on what do you think is kevin durant the best player now greeley look. I don't know what was going on yesterday. I don't know if it was because it was monday. Coming off a father's day weekend but all the old hands tripping on national television yesterday kevin durant is the best player in the world right now even magic was tripping. I don't think lebron james. I don't think he even gives a damn in year going into year. Nineteen be about being the best player in the world..

"2021 draft came and went. Ben Simmons, still with Philly. We're heading to free agency and we'll see what happens with the Sixers roster. Wooldridge has reported that filly isn't going to rush into a deal, but he says they have had a timeline in mind. ESPN Insider Brian Wynne Horst On one hand, they're absolutely having trade talks involving him. You know he is not untouchable in any regard on the other. The packages that they are asking for him are being deemed so preposterous by the teams in talking with them. They feel like they're not. Really seriously wanting to trade him. So Darryl Murray plays all sorts of strategy games. He plays all sorts of long games. He's got something up his sleeve and something he obviously wants to accomplish with these trade talks. But the thing is, it's now so widely known he is being floated out there in trade talks. I don't know how you recover from that. And bring him to training camp. But Daryl Morey in the past has made it clear he doesn't care about players feeling. And so maybe he doesn't care about what Ben seven steals right now is he keeps hearing about his name and rumors. Ben Simmons still in Philly in the NFL to Shawn Watson, still in Houston, very different situation. Although talks Have been happening, but there's an issue with the league. ESPN is Adam Schefter, first and foremost, the legal situation is going to go on all season long and it's going to go on until after the season because Shawn Watson continues to maintain his innocence, and he doesn't believe that he should have to settle. When he doesn't think he did anything wrong, And meanwhile, the lawsuits are piling up. So you have this very sorted, complicated legal tail on top of the football situation for a football situation..

Fresh update on "ben simmons" discussed on WGR Programming

"And now watch exclusively on ESPN, Plus I think the key for the Lakers as we have to see how they have to finish the off season before he can fully appreciate where they are as a team, so they have do we have to honestly like what? Whatever else the Lakers do At this point, they're still going to have this gigantic problem of Russell Westbrook trying to fit with LeBron James. Going into the season. That's not going to change. Well, the thing about it is I mean, I don't know who their center is going to be. It better be. Anthony Davis. It's hard to imagine it's going to be okay. I don't know who their point guard is going to be. Okay. It's Russell Westbrook. I'm sorry. You're right. I'm sorry. They have their point. I apologize or LeBron James Rain fire. What I meant to say is I don't know who their Shooting guard is going to be. Yes. Um and I don't know who their other player who they're going to put in there when they want to go to their shooting line up bids, so I would assume they're going to want to resign. Caruso important, Tucker, if for no other reason is probably going to be there, starting other starting guard, right? Well, the thing about is where this trade puts them. They're basically they're at 130 million, so as far as their salaries go, they're not going to be able to use the full mid level so they're going to have to use the taxpayer mid level, which is five like 5.7 million. So you know, I know that there's some people out there who have dreamed about them trying to figure out a way to get the martyr Rosen. I mean, at this point, Yeah, it would be an even bigger disaster at this point. Yeah, like, dude you have to. You have to get somebody who if he's alone at the three point line, it would be somewhat concerning for the opposing diesel. That's but But this is the alternate reality. I want to set up. Just remember with where Let's look at where they are in August 10th and remember that they could have had Buddy healed. And and they might have been able to do a sign and trade with that with a first round pick. And K C p to get the murder Rosa. They might have been able to pull that off. I mean, I don't think the bar but again tomorrow is the same. Damar goes back to the same problem. We're talking about where the Lakers are chasing star names that are not fits with the guys that they have on their No. But if you if you have healed and then you're adding two rows in it, it's some sort of. I mean, he But even though the thing with Russ as you do, you're doing it with the $40 million contract, and you're doing it as a guy who needs to dominate the ball like totally Yeah, totally and Wendy's alternate world, maybe two. Rosen's even coming off the bench in the sixth man role. Yeah, I mean, that's fair, frozen because six mineral let's see if they can somehow figure out a way to sign and trade Dennis treated for something. That's 12. Let's see the contracts of Horton, Tucker and Cruz so ultimately get assuming that they stay in L, A and with their contracts that can become assets and let's see what they do with that mid level. Exception. Money, which you know to me thinking about, maybe DeRozan and healed and then using that mid level exception to get some sort of center that can they can play in there when it's not Anthony Davis. That to me was was a logical way. Assuming LeBron and a D come back for power. That is a that is a stud team. Let's just see what they are. And and the thing about that I want to talk a little about the point guard. Market Point guard market is very much driving this offseason. So now that we've moved past the draft, which we'll talk about in a minute, Chris Paul is What's the opposite of his contract or not? From what? I understand? New Orleans made a strong I know. Technically free agency hasn't started yet. So you got to be careful what I say or otherwise will be accused of reporting tampering than New Orleans. Makes this trade with Memphis. By the way. From what I understand Memphis was Was pretty far down The road with Sacramento that would send would have sent Jonas Valanciunas to Sacramento in a package that would have brought back Marvin Bagley and then um, would also have brought back the number nine picks. They end up doing the deal with New Orleans instead and get the number 10 pick that's important. So they end up doing a deal that clears out 20 extra million in space. So now they can get to a $30 million contract or someone that neighborhood. So from what I understand New Orleans was targeting Chris Paul and Kyle Lowry with those with that slot now, Chris Paul had a very good relationship with Willie Green, who was their head coach. Was their assistant coaches is now the new Pelicans head coach, and they believe that that relationship could be a draw in free agency. But the feeling within the league now is that Chris Paul is going to stay put in Phoenix. Whether or not he is going to opt out and sign a new deal or extend his contract or whatever the belief is that Chris Paul is not ever going to be on the open market. Kyle Lowry has many options. The Miami Heat has been guy and created. See next week. The Miami Heat are obviously very interested there. They can create a lot of space. They have to cut some dudes. They have to cut Goran drag age. I think they'd have to cut Andre Iguodala or trade them off, Um, and to open up the kind of space they need for Lowry, who's looking at A deal between 25 30 million, I think is where he's looking, and the number of years are going to matter. So he's got New Orleans sitting there. He's got Miami who wants some Jimmy Butler would love to play with them. And then you've got Dallas who? If Dallas says goodbye to correct me if I'm wrong here, McMahon If they say goodbye to Tim Hardaway, they could get into the neighborhood of the mid twenties to 2 30 million in space. Is that right? Yeah, And I mean, there's no secret that the master looking to move Josh Richards and assume the opposite to his contract so that I could get them. Well into the thirties. Um you know the Maritz. They do want to keep Hardaway. I just, You know, I don't see a realistic way that they can do that and sign a guy like Lowry. Yeah. Okay. So whatever Dallas has interest in Lowry and they're gonna try to figure it out, and so the key, I think for Lara will be also I think I should point out Philadelphia who didn't trade forum in the in the spring. You know, Messiah, Jiri. I've said this to bomb times before, but Besides your he's done a lot of very good things, and we'll talk about a big massage jury decision just in a minute here that he made tonight. Besides done a lot of great things to build championship team the way he handled the Kyle Lowry situation. The deadline continues to be mysterious to me. So Philadelphia. I do think has some interest in doing a sign and trade. That's the only way they could get them with. Toronto. Toronto has offered Pascal CIA come around and they drafted Uh Scotty Barnes tonight, which Maybe further makes it clear. I mean, not that Barnes is going to be this going to be that type of filling, but it kind of makes it clear where they're going with the outcome, But one of the mechanisms for them to improve would be to sign and trade Lowry. Philadelphia is a place for that, and I know everybody's going to jump to Ben Simmons conclusions, but I just don't think there's any traction on Ben Simmons deals. As I talked to teams out there they talk about what Philly is asking for, and it's almost laughable. The And some of the stuff has gotten reported. But with suffice to say the offers that I have told Philly has made to trade Simmons are so aggressive and outlandish that it makes you walk away, saying they're not really trying to trade they're trying to get as well as put a hard and ask package when they were willing to give up. They were eager to give up Simmons. You know, plus to get to get hard and it's like what is come on. That was, But let me just say Astros playoffs. How can how can you you go forward Ben Simmons when he's already fragile in general. And now he's he's being talked about everywhere..

Sixers guys will share a hometown. How do you feel right now. That cao lowry is staying. Put and all that stuff that we heard that the sixers were going to go after him. The lakers were going. After miami was in the mix there was so many teams in the mix for kyle lowry. What do you feel that. He is not going to your hometown. We also got kyle lowry crying on camera last night waving goodbye to toronto aka tampa so this is a very strange story. They orchestrated this whole thing to make you feel like this was an inevitability. I was never really that confident that we were going to get lower that the sixers were gonna get larry for as much as i would love to see him. Return nova graduate high school basketball legend.

But i do think that the media ruins podcast right now after everything that we have gone through right now are you are you. All i'm saying is that like it doesn't all have to happen today. And i think what the the move that they did make by acquiring george hill for basically for tony bradley and like some some.

"ben simmons" Discussed on ESPN Daily

"With the first pick in the two thousand sixteen NBA Draft The Philadelphia Seventy sixers select Ben Simmons Ben Simmons was the first overall pick in twenty sixteen at the time when he was coming into the League what did people think of him and his strengths and weaknesses people were Ben Simmons like the next Great Basketball Prospect Tim Bon temps is an NBA writer for Espn. I mean whether you go back to Lebron James whether you go back to Kobe Bryant into what are you go back to Tim Duncan he was looked at like that kind of player he's a big time perhaps that has full vision he can pass out of the post he's also shown to be a big time rebounded when he get the defensive rebound he can rip and go and take it in the open floor and complete a playing in transition as a point guard would he upgrade constructive basketball player out of clay create this guy that you would want to have you're going to go on NBA Two K.. And create a my player right you would probably create a six ten guy who was really fast who could dribble who could do basically everything on the court and like say an MBA touquet you do that you run out of point at some point right and like for Ben Simmons ran out of points on the shooting that was the only thing he was holding him back for being the perfect basketball prospect where people concerned about that back then they were to a degree doc in today's NBA where we're talking about pace and space that was coming off two year when the warriors one seventy three games with steph curry hitting four hundred three's right three point shooting has never been important we have seven footers like Brook Lopez going from shooting Nantou shooting basically only three pointers right it is certainly something that people had concerns about that was this Guy able to credibly impact the game from the perimeter right if this was saying nineteen ninety five and Ben Simmons was coming to get any played way probably where longer bag your shorts at being the nineties would win any of this be a big deal at all I would say it would be a big deal to a degree like if you go back to save Magic Johnson who people like to compare Bentiu now right he was another guy that came in the league and he basically didn't make a three for the first years of his career and eventually he became a good shooter Jason Kidd and other guy that early in his career he was called Ason kid because he didn't have J. Right that was the joke about Jason Kidd until he became one of the top ten all time and three point makes of his career because he eventually added to his game so people I think would look at Ben in the same form as those guys but the thing that also connects those guys is that they're all you know hall of Fame Level Talents who rebelled impact the game in so many ways that even though they couldn't make shots they were so obviously you know hugely important impactful player finally so ben comes into the League everyone knows this is the whole in his game the first couple of years does even try to take a three Barely I would say this his rookie season he's instantly great he wins rookie of the year the sixers make the playoffs then at least rock into wind around fifty games the process is finally worked right Ben still doesn't shoot he takes I think a handful of threes four or five doesn't make any symmetry tempting three would have been the first of his career how about that so Ben Simmons over four from the this season when did it first start becoming almost a meme in the NBA world. That Ben Simmons can't shoot whether getting the plows the first time against the Boston Celtics in the second round in Eastern Conference playoffs in two thousand eighteen the Celtics just back away from Ben and say basically Bernard dare you to shoot what do the playoffs do they exposure we this is and Bendon rack rate he didn't play well he really struggling series he didn't really know how to kind of handle that defense and back it was almost like there was a moat between Ben and the Celtics you can see how much room they are giving Ben Simmons they basically just stood in the paint and all the all the hardwood between the three point line and the paint was just sitting there at Ben just gotTa have the ball and they're like all right what are you GonNa do and he didn't ruin ought to do the bounce and knocks it out of bounds Boston ball nothing going right for Ben Simmons almost kind of pain Foale to watch those games because you kinda you just were watching it going man like at some point he's got to figure this out have you ever been in the presence of Simmons when he attempts and outside shot I have a have a couple of times I mean it looks like anything else like his shot doesn't look that awful you know like that game against the Lakers last year Simmons Serving Out Front Lebron Ling all the way back in the keys daring him to shoot Simmons does and you could hear the fans can arise it's it's a rare occurrence just as third three-point attempt this year just rimmed out everyone at presser changing defensive play or something right and then you know after the game it's all anybody wants to talk about right I remember Joel embiid unsurprisingly chiming in we did we tell him gotta should it a man there's nothing wrong with that I hope daddy keeps shooting.

"But he offers no threat to shoot. And so this is this big debate the tapping within Sixers fandom is whether or not Ben Simmons as the unicorn that he is makes up for the fact that Ben Simmons as one of your primary ball handlers doesn't space the floor were you at that game. Yeah. I was Sixers. What was your take on on? I think you're not gonna find the screaming for me I legitimately want to like scream out into the void. And be like do we realize that like Simmons is averaging more points, more rebounds and just slightly less number of society? I'd last year shooting better from the field. Like, I don't I get the. The whole crisis with him not being a threat and data affecting how the offense runs, but I think it's more about the rest of the Rosser than it is about him shooting. But it is very like fun and interesting and far more. I guess controversial to focus on the fact that is intriguing, but I I think I think it's not that big of an issue right now as much as we're probably making it out to be. I don't know I've said this in the past. But I just feel like it's such a waste like I think Ben at his best last season was top five watch in the NBA. Here's the way that he could just reek havoc on the core. Take it from one end and just like dunk on everybody on the other end is very Westbrook esque in terms of just like his style of play. And we were talking about this before it gets under control though. Yes. The thing. That's so that's so amazing about him. Is that he would like, yes, he could go coast to coast and Tomahawk, but he would also go coast to coast, and then pull it back out and find JJ on on the on the wing. You know what I mean like so much poise? It's almost like a robot created by ROY. Ross. Yes. In his image shoots. His Franken sign or something. I mean, they're of is a similar issue where his style of play is creating all these like kind of auxiliary concerns that like in a vacuum. She might be their best player. But with the guys he's paired round like it's really interesting the kind of tension it creates especially in the Eastern Conference, which even though the bucks are there. Even though the raptors there, I still feel like at the Sixers put it all together if they get some guys around these three guys like I I still think they're pretty dangerous team. Specially if the Celtics can't get their shit together. Do you have any confidence that the season like this can contend as we thought they would kind going into it? I don't know if I have confidence because I don't necessarily think we're gonna get an alias ova Nabil in LA, sir. To us on a platter. Like we did last year. Right. I would say that. I I blame more the empty cupboard of assets and reliable backup players than I do Ben Simmons. And it's not just Elise over Belen Ellie we're talking about. Now, we're all star..
