"There we go. All right, at the bottom. That's why we missed them last night when we were. Because I thought the same thing. I was like, oh, we didn't talk about a couple of signings. And then I was like, oh, that's why. All right, so let's talk about them now. Chris Boucher, the raptors resigned him. Dad young. They also, he's not showing here, because that young was an extension. Tame and Gary Harris got extension deals. Kind of a quirk of fun little oddity. Because of the overlap between the opening of the negotiation period at 6 p.m., we still had 6 hours left in the current league gear to do things with extensions and the like. So that's what happened with that young. That's why you're not seeing unlisted here. He's in another section under extensions and another part of the site. But yeah, Boucher and young will stay stay pretty good, solid deals for them. We don't know what Porter got. They should have had enough to give them the non taxpayer. Mid level. So we probably got yeah, I think he got all of that minus the carve out enough to probably give their second round picture in colloquial, the big man, a longer than two year minimum deal. But auto Porter junior, what a get for the raptors. Oh, big time. And again, the champs, they lost talent. Between Porter, Peyton, belita, toscano Anderson. Now they get a bunch of young guys that they're ready to play more. Wise men come inga moody, but now they're going to have to really lean on those guys. But we're in the Toronto section, Porter. I love this signing for the raptors. Yeah, this is great for them. Again, you can't have too many wings. And he's going to be a nice fit there. And again, I would based on what the other wings on the market have got, I would be surprised if this was not the non taxpayer here. It almost has to be. Right. Because otherwise, I don't know, be aware that is. Al Mac asked, why didn't the nuts keep Bruce Brown? I don't know. I kind of wonder if that was more a Bruce Brown thing than a net thing. He might have looked at that thing and said, I'm not going to be here with whatever the leftovers are. That come in after you trade everybody else, I want to compete. I want to win a championship, you know, get me out of here. That's possible, for sure. Nick ice is the nets are tanking. I don't think so, 'cause then I don't have their own picks. So this got brought up. Lowe's podcast, I believe it was last night. Yeah. It was like three in the morning or something. So I don't remember exactly. I'm pretty sure it was low. But they were talking about it. It was Zach low and Kevin palton. Yeah, they were saying at the same time you did about three in the morning. Okay, so you know what I'm talking about. They were saying, look, last time around, then that's where in this situation, everybody said the same thing. They're not going to tank. And then they tanked. I mean, they just pretty much said the picks are cost. And so we're not going to worry too much about winning games. Why is this different now? Why do you see them pushing to win right now as compared to what happened last time around when they did the whole Kevin Garnett and all the Paul Pierce, all those guys trade? Yeah, those guys were not all..

"We didn't do. We must skip them. I apologize. That's a really good call. So Toronto resigned Chris Boucher and dad young. To a couple of good value deals, I think. I thought those were pretty good. Andrew, I apologize. Thanks for reminding us. Yeah, I liked both of those signings for them. And then Washington get delon Wright, which I think is a pretty good addition for another point guard. So pair with Monte Morris and at the point guard position is covered now. Yep. Yeah, they're pretty well set. Utah waived, watch O hernan Gomez today. Just somebody's going to want booze. Like I said, he needs to just change his name to bok roos. Be funny if he did. Why not? How much money can Gallinari get in the open market? What he signed for the veteran minimum. I mean, we heard earlier the day that he was looking for like mid level exception buddy. I don't know if he gets that. We'll see, maybe? Yeah. Yeah, Gary Payton the second is still available. Yeah, I think for Gallo, this is a really good question. I think it's, I think the bull's purposely left, at a chunk of their non tax mid level. Open for him is what it looks like off of the Drummond numbers. So that's been a place he's been looking to go. It sounds like he was maybe trying to drive a little bit of a bidding war between Chicago and Boston. A Boston can't pay him more than the taxpayer mid level. So who knows? You to watanabe. He's available. He's out there. So here we'll see a lens somewhere. People asking, is there a Lakers nation live shutdown? Yeah, it's in just under an hour. Yeah. Whoever's gonna get right back to work. That's right. That's right. We did with the KD news broke. We did a live show that in the middle of the day at impromptu one. So it's been a busy day. It's been a busy day, but we expect this today. So by the end of the week, we're both going to sound like we've had probably like a 35 year smoking habit with no voices left and just a mess. So yeah, that'll be fun. But yeah, guys, it's day one of free agency. It's been a blast. We have a lot of stuff. I went down today, but a lot of big stuff still to come, we'll be back live at some point tomorrow night. With that, we'll get into all that stuff. And we'll go from there. There was what was I going to say there was one other thing and I forgot what it was now. I don't remember. We'll add it tomorrow. Yeah, we'll figure it out tomorrow. It'll come to me by. It's the minute we stop recording and get off the live show here. It's been a long time. I have a piece up on spa track all about rookie scale extensions, if you want to read projected those Trevor noses, I hit on 5 of them last year. Almost perfect, spot on numbers..

"For micro Scala. Thank you, magic. Chris Boucher, probably going to get more than the Lakers can pay there, but interesting, bouncy option, 29, older than you would think. Jared Culver, a guy who's kind of washed out at this point, bounced around a little bit since being drafted. He'd be a guy that you could take a flyer on and try it, but I don't think you would expect significant production out of him. Nope. Dennis Schroeder were probably not going back down that road again. So yeah, maybe, but if the Lakers had no one, no point guard, they could bring in and Dennis schroder was still out there, but again, that didn't end well between those two sides. Brandon Robinson real quick, the super chat. I hate that LeBron's incredible season was so overlooked. Sad to see a historical performance pushed to the side. Yeah, I've been saying it for a while now. I've been saying it for a while that if you are, if you are LeBron, you're looking at this season thinking this was an MVP caliber campaign. Injuries aside, if he was able to stay healthy, he was putting up MVP caliber numbers. I'm not saying he wins it, but if the Lakers were the two seat or three seed, he's in the MVP conversation. To unfortunate because he was absolutely fantastic. All right, back to it. Avery Bradley, he was a favorite of Frank Vogel's. I don't think that's going to hold a lot of sway with darvin Hamm in terms of the advanced metrics, didn't work out so well with Avery. I don't dislike Avery Bradley, but I don't think you can lean on him quite like the Lakers did in 2019, 2020. Our old friend, JaVale McGee. If the Lakers could get him, yes, please would love it. Is up there in years, but that's okay for a guy that you're not going to count on to play major minutes. But again, made 5 million, played really well for the Phoenix Suns, played well enough to where the suns are looking at Deandre 8 and thinking, do we need to give him a max contract when biz Mac biombo and JaVale McGee both also looked really good behind him if JaVale McGee was out there for the veteran minimum? Sure. I don't know if I would burn that full taxpayer mid level though and that's probably what he's going to get from somebody most likely Phoenix. Robin Lopez, another veteran center that I like a lot. If you can get them, sure, but he and his brother Brooke love love love Disney and with the Orlando Magic, he's basically living at Disney World. So you got a prime away from that. Lou Williams, we have to see if he's going to play another season up there in years. I don't think it's going to happen. Josh Jackson, young enough, but doesn't have the shooting. He's a wing, the leaders had some success last season with Malik monk who had some problems before coming to the Lakers and then looked really good. Maybe? Maybe, but I don't think he'd be the top of my list. Jalen Smith, I think, is interesting. Jalen Smith is a guy who is interesting to me because he's got the ability to step outside and shoot a little bit, physical specimen, not the most fluid player. He's a little bit awkward when he's on the floor..

"chris boucher" Discussed on The Lowe Post
"His expiring contract. They are paper thin playing a 7.5 man rotation with Dylan Alban and Ken burch combining to be the .5 on some nights. They just need players. The focus of the rumors has been, well, they need a center, and I do think the Jakob purl noise is somewhat real. My question to you is this. It's easy to find players that are worth dragach expired expiring and two seconds or a second. It's not easy for me to find players who are worth drag is expiring and their first is such a player that you like or like I'm not giving up that first for Terrence Ross or Gary Harris or even Eric Gordon and I'll say this too. Let me add this. I heard I can't remember what podcast I was listening to but I heard someone say, well, this is a team that drafts so well that for them to give up their first. That's really painful. And I agree with that, but there's also a flip side to that. This is a team that's drafted in the second round so well and hit the undrafted market so well that you could spin that the other way and say, well, who cares about the 20th pick in the draft? We'll get the same guy without even a traffic. So I'm curious what they'll do. I just don't see her because of his contract. I can see, okay, that's worth our first. I don't know if they're gonna get him just for that. Also, it's also the fact that there's also the fact that he was drafted by them and is very tight with that whole core guy. Pascal. And it's mobile enough to play the style Nick nurse wants to play. It's very easy to say, well, this center, that center plug use of it, you have no edge can't play defense like the raptors play defense is crazy, flying around. Watching zones, triangle and twos, hexagons and 7s, like you can't play that way. So I don't think there are another guy you like? I don't think and I don't think Nick nurse wants necessarily wants to get a center, right? I think he is very happy having this health or skelter wacko team that's pressing and flying around. And by the way, I watched the raptors play the bulls the other day. I don't know if you watch that game. Scottie Barnes put his shoulder in Nick fuse of it and sent him flying into the stanchion under the basket for another and it was a moment where I went, wow. I did the same thing. Watching that guy play center like, it might be okay just playing him at center for. And I love the I love we gotta think of a nickname the raptors media people smarter than me need to go up with a nickname for the Chris Boucher presses a chua we just come in off the bench and end up in it's unclear if for centers or power forwards or what the hell we're actually doing, but it works somehow. We need a nickname for that. I mean, all they do is just have all these I mean, even the guys that don't play it's on like banton and you to watch, they all these guys are all 6, 8, 6, 9, long, they just come in and fly around and do stuff. So, I mean, look, I think the raptors, they have Fred van vleet Pascal siakam and obi are one two three in minutes per game. I think Scotty barge is in the top ten. Gary trend is in the top 20. The coach is pretty clear to me saying, I would like some other players that I like on my team to play. So I'm with you. I think maybe you split drag and drop into a couple players maybe. To add some depth, you know, like you said, maybe not giving up a first. I don't see Toronto necessarily going and getting like you said a guy like Eric Gordon, I would think they'd probably try to go on the younger side, guy that they could put in their developmental system. But I don't think it's necessarily clear who it is that they go get, but I do think, you know, they see the sort of same opening, everybody else does. And they can add a deaf piece or two to give that rotation a little more half. They are absolutely not a team. I would want to be playing in the first round of class, or again, like they're not a team I'd want to be playing in the play in either, like they're going to be a tough out. I'm going to predict a trade dragach in two seconds for something. Next topic and then we'll go. What is can you explain to me the CJ McCollum, New Orleans pelicans, rumors, like New Orleans is 5 New Orleans is the world is in the playing spots boss. And starting one in 12, everyone's like, well, they've got to make the plan. They've got to be like, they're in the play in. The teams behind them are the spurs, whatever the kings, a flying dumpster careening down the highway of life. The rockets trying to lose the thunder trying to lose. Why are we the blazers now sort of imploding their team, what is this fear? And by the way, Zion supposedly is coming back at some point to bolster the current pelicans, where is this fear that without CJ McCollum, the pelicans are going to fall out of the plant? If the pelicans with one wing should be able to cinch a play in spot, I mean, I think the answer is fairly clear. It's that people in New Orleans would like to remain employed in the more games they win, the more likely it is their main employed. I think that's the real reason behind it. I mean, look, I'm with you. I don't really see Jim McCollum as a nice player. He's also making $70 million roughly the next couple of years and is a, which is probably a two guard that's not great on defense, right? Like that's not we just talked about Keras liver. Those players are obviously a clearly better player to cares for an offensively. But I'm not sure that's the guy that unnecessarily if I'm the pelicans want to invest a ton of my resources. Now let's do the trade. So let's talk about the resources we're sending. In fairness. So just to make the math work on Saturday and Josh harder in it for sure. Josh hart said, Garrett temple, I'm probably going to have to throw in one of my first round picks. I've got extra bucks picks I've got extra Lakers picks up. Let's say a first round pick if you're the pelicans you could say, well, Saturn's he's not playing. We have extra picks to play with temples not really playing for us anymore. Heart's a big part of our team. CJ McCollum is better than Josh hart. This is the pelican spin. What player for player he's better? This is a borderline all star. Whatever. And he fills our biggest need, which is like other guys who can dribble and create offense. You know, devonte Graham's kind of more of a spot up guy at point guard Jose alvarado has been a nice spark for us off the bench, but you know he's really a guy we're riding with maybe. We just see more creation more dribbling our point guard spots, kind of weak. Well, and he's also took to be fair, he's also a really good shooter and if you get Zion back, he'll, you know, that's a guy who will take some pressure off of Zion inside too. My note of caution would be Josh hart has been awesome. My starting 5 of Graham hart Herbert Jones Herbert. I'm going full Herbert with her. He's very good for fans and for fans who haven't watched the pelicans much. Watch the pelicans and watch our Jones split defense. Somebody taps you on the shoulder and you can't see who they are. It's a 50% chance of comfort Jones and one of his long arms. Those three plus Brandon Ingram and.

"Don't. If that, if the answer to that is no, you stay entirely away from this. Look, I think under because if Joel embiid misses 30 games, this is so many ways that goes wrong, but you also can see how betting the under would lead to financial ruin. Yeah, I would not feel good about betting the under here. But I would if making a pics, I'm going on here. The Toronto Raptors are up next. I'm going under here too. 35 and a half Sam? It's so low. It's so low. This is Toronto. Back in Toronto? So there's every reason to go over on this number. Every reason. Back in Toronto, really good coach. Comet and point guard who's like is unflappable. Good, long team that knows how to defend. Team that plays hard. Like every night. 35 and 47 sounds about right to me. So here's why. Please worse center position in the NBA still. Right? It's bad. Like we don't think they're gonna protect the ram at all. Pascal siakam is going to miss time. He tore his labrum and just got surgery in June. So he is going to miss 5 months. I think that a reasonable production as he misses 2025 games this year. Yeah. So you're talking about a team without the best player. When he's out of Fred vanvleet, OGN precious the true malachi Flynn, Scotty Barnes, Ken burch will be in the lineup for sure. Goran dragach, like we don't know what's going to happen with draggage, really? Yeah. Maybe we can get something more of? I don't know, maybe not. If Gary Trent obviously, I'm sorry I didn't mention gerrymandering. That's good. But buckets. I, without siakam, this is a bad team. Yeah. I just like, I have a hard time believing they're going to be bad again back to back seasons, but you might be right. I still think I'm a lean over. But it's certainly not going on the card. Yeah. You make some strong points. I think my thing is like ventilate and Gary Trent can score as backward duo. I like that a lot offensively. And family defense is a good point of attack defender. A bigger, I'm a big OG guy. Like him a lot. I agree about the center position. I like Chris Boucher, just like as a person. But and I think he can do some fun things as a player but he's not a guy that you want as you're starting center. Yeah, he's a great backup center. He's a great pace. Spark plug because he'll block some he'll block a bunch of shots and he'll shoot the hell out of the ball and you don't want him playing team defense for 30 minutes. Right, you kind of want him to feel free to roam for 18 and do his thing. A lot of it does come down to like what the dragged thing is..

"You know we've touched on calorie the basketball player But talk about the person The human being. He's really really loved by the team. And by my canada really Can you tell me what is it about him. That makes him so lovable. Yeah you know. I think cows one of those one of those guys who's really prickly to his superiors you know whether it's coaches or even general manager. It's been well documented that you know he's had some ups and downs with messiah jury but he's beloved by his teammates and he's beloved by fans because i think he never makes anything about himself whether it's on the corner off the court you know he does a lot of stuff off the court with you know sick kids hospital you know. Thanksgiving food drives a lot of those things in the community. You know that's entrenched him with the city of toronto and one of the best examples. I can give to really describe cholera. Is you know. During the twenty twenty season there was a regular season game with the raptors came back from thirty points down to the dallas mavericks in the second half and an kyle. Lowry was instrumental. Like he was the engine for for that. One of the most remarkable comebacks not just in raptors history but just league history and after the game when they asked him about his performance. He never answered a single question and talked about himself. All he did was he praise on his teammates. Even though everybody in the room knew that it was kyle who was responsible for this comeback. Tuesday is ron gay and chris boucher I give them all the credit today. They won that game. Give those guys credit seriously. And that's what kyle has always been like. He's always talked about wanting a young players to develop wanting them to get paid and wanting the best for his teammates. And you know to me you know. I think sometimes in sports maybe we overrate terms like leadership and like intangibles. But for me call really brought those things and he didn't just bring those things but he was also a great player and combined that made him who he was. I grew from immature kid trying to find his way man. Why everybody this that and the other two are are how to help this young get better. How do i help You know this this guy get paid. How do i you know. He's a pretty serious dude on on the basketball court like he's a he's a intense competitor but he's also pretty funny guy as well Wonder if you can tell me or give me some of your favorite funniest calorie moments in toronto. Yeah you know it's funny. You know. I think i think if people just google kalari demar derozan on youtube. You'll see a lot of just funny. Interactions between them. I'll go based off. You know these days. It's not like i gotta have the mindset of go out there and you know. I got score thirty forty points. I go out there and play aggressive thirty-seven what you mean. I didn't go out there saying. Let me score the dirty tonight. But i say got thirty seven. Say what i'm saying. I didn't go out there and you can't say that you had thirty seven. Listen what i'm trying to explain. Obviously they were great friends one of the things that actually you know i always want to point people to is just the pre game routine that he used to do when he played at home as scotiabank arena you know when when the lights would dim at the arena. And and the pa announcer would introduce the starters. Kyle.

"Let them know you came from us. Yeah so the the raptors part of this is getting you know facilitating gets them groin. Dragging 'cause the the adopted him will see my instinct. Is that gordon. Targets is not going to stay in toronto for that long. But maybe he could. I mean i think there could be potentially teams interested in him on the trade market there. There are some logistical challenges. There but also getting purchased chew. Who can be a talented player. I think if in moore's back out but certainly has Raptors highly regarded player development. But on top of that day came to terms. Remember that was that gary trent junior four. Norman powell trade and the raptors got trent pending restrict free agent and at the outset of his restricted free agency. Gt j. gets three years fifty four million with a third year player option. Yes so clearly. The right decision by trent and his representation at clutch sports do not engage on that josh. Richardson four years fifty three million and said he gets more guaranteed with a player option over three years or rather than four years so pretty good job there and this is kinda good piece of work here. I mean he's getting paid the same amount as some of these other shooting guards in the market essentially and now always keep in mind particularly with these guys. These younger players there can be a lot of funny money involved We'll get to the funniest funny money later in terms of the reporting but you know this could end up being two three million dollars a year in incentives. And you never know what those are going to be right now. So we'll caution particularly anytime a kind of extension or a restricted free agency contract for a young player and this is also like the first contract. The agents are very concerned about the number that gets reported. So wouldn't shock me if you end up two or three million per season less than this per year in terms of the guarantee might but the player option is really a huge part for trenching so he got himself paid like a very high end. Starting shooting guard good for him at his age. And then are i think something else we can talk about. What the raptors is that we wondered and besigye jury still has the latitude to make wholesale changes but typically when those sorts of deals happen like. Let's say they were trading. Fred van leader pascal siaka. Especially if they weren't taking back as much sal return typically those happen either drafter early in free agency because that's one potential trade partners of the most flexible. It is not the only time to make those deals but as we made it through august second and none of the other raptors changed cities that to me made it more likely that the team is going to stay more salt. That doesn't guarantee it. But it's something i thought was worth mentioning. No absolutely am the wraps. Had they not done this law reciting trade. They could have functioned as a team under the cap with the in the sixty million dollar range. Maybe a little bit more than that if it if they'd done a few things as soon as they wanted to hold onto chris boucher regardless but instead they traded for garage drugs but they also got precious to choose who i actually really like in this rap system and they don't have a great option. It's he might even start at center next year. We'll see they still have the mid level available. They still have the be a available as well if if they want to bring in another center potentially or they could move on from dragon open up since as but it seemed also for the raptors. The opportunity cost not having cap. Space was not huge. Because you know. Jared allen resigned and a massive deal that they probably wouldn't want to pay with cleveland and there wasn't really another player maybe rashawn homes would have been the guy but if i would probably rather have a truer than homes not maybe next year but for a team. That's not necessarily competing next year. I would rather take a jewish. So i think that was pretty good now. You can go back to what the offers were at the trade deadline. It sounds like for example. The lakers offered didn't even include. Taylor horton tucker and i don't know if it even included any draft picks and i would probably value chew of more than what would have ended up being like the number twenty two lakers pick. I've really liked. I've seen for him. Maybe the other people feel differently. So i think the wraps prolly did. Okay here we get. We just don't know what the offers were at the deadline. But they got something like it wasn't it wasn't in the end and insane decision to just hold onto kyle lowry like they managed and i think they had a pretty good idea. That miami was coming for him inside and trade talks. 'cause they probably got pretty far down that road with miami at the deadline as well so i think toronto ultimately did pretty well here. We'll see how trent junior that's he's a good player. I like him. he's probably got seru to grow. But it's also a pretty penny for gay trendy near we'll see what happens with targets as well as some other teams who's point guard might be interested in trading for him and maybe the wraps could get something from those teams by taking back some bad salary or they just roll with him. They could well be better next year even if they don't really add much except the suffer around the margins here. Let's let's stay on the high end point guard train and well actually no i i i wanna i. I got one more little thing. We've got to get to here. I because to tie up the pj tucker threat okay. Because that is we told you we. We told you about the walkie box and ownership and it does seem like jaanus resigning. I bet you. If you're honest where free agent they might have ponied up a little bit more. Pj tucker and clearly. It seemed to have been an issue of money. There's reporting of tucker potentially returning on a two year. Twenty million dollar deal to the box but Ono the tax man came calling for mark lazarie and west edens wallet and whether that was ever out there. Not maybe that was. That was put out there by tigers representation early on to sort of put the pressure on but tucker at an instagram post. He thanked the city of milwaukee But not necessarily the bucks organization and he seemed based on his statements that he fully intended return. And your colleagues samay. Mika reported basically the same as well that it was really just the bucks did not come with anything near miami's offer due to the tax consideration. Yeah and considering. Milwaukee just want a championship with a miniscule tax bill because drew holiday. They wanna championships His bonus pushed them over the edge. That's concerning especially because there's no way for them to replace. Pg tucker and he was a vital part in they will get dante's even chance. Oh back but tucker was was essential for them winning the championship. And it's concerning to see a team this good you know. This has come up before and they did win a championship but to see a team. This good set it aside for primarily financial reasons in tucker's case they had fiber there. This is not a circumstance of we just. We did what we could and he just went somewhere else. No not only did they have the full capacity but he signed completely reasonable contract elsewhere. And based on what. We've kind of seen. It seems like he was very open to coming back. So it wasn't. We did everything we could and he just chose the. Ocd can think about okay see with ranters some other those that does happen but this is not that case. The bucks did retain bobby portis. It is a two year nine million dollar deal with a second-year player option. That sounds like it's non bird rights so the bucks retain their taxpayer mid level exception. But who knows if they're gonna use it. I mean there aren't there..

"So they're willing to get rid of those for those first round picks. I don't think the cleveland cavaliers would be good enough regardless if they bring in kate cunningham so maybe those first round picks have some value especially if they're for the next four years. I don't know if they have those picks on rub. They've traded them away or whatnot but if something like that does come in then. Maybe you think about it. You know because. I mean if you got a good young player and you get four first round picks on top of that then it's worth listening to but they should still be leaning on training on drafting cade cunningham. He's got all those skills that you want in a star player. He can shoot the ball off the dribble. You know all those other things. I've said he he's got an on top of that. I just love the fact that he he's a willing passer and he's at that length with that skill. I it's something that you don't see in the nba very often so they should certainly draft him first. Overall another guy that has been considered one of the better players in this draft jalen suggs from gonzaga. He had an incredible freshman season. Averaged about fourteen and a half points per game five rebounds four and a half assists on about thirty four percent from three and he can do a little bit of everything on that offense event. I mean you can pass the ball. He's eight a very tough player. Despite a six four small frame He can do a little bit of everything like shoot off the dribble Get inside and score tuft buckets and he's a competitor you know. And he's got some great body strength like he looks like a small guy but he is strong and he can finish through contract through contact and he can rebound the bombing at six four to rebound to have five rebounds a game he can easily be one of the better rebounding guards in the league You know in some time and and there there's a lot of people seeing superstar ceiling I could see it but there just needs to be a little bit more development in his playmaking even though four and a half assists per game is not bad He certainly has that ability but he had the ball in his hands a lot throughout the season. So we'll have to see how that works better defenders in the nba But i do think jalen sucks is going to be a very solid player in the nba. One that i'm very excited to watch. I my centers and evan mobely from. Usc has incredible skill. I mean he is a lanky guy. He's not the strongest at seven feet tall. He's almost he's only two hundred and fifteen pounds but he is easily the best defender on this list. I mean his length his ability to to block shots. He's quick enough to make switches and guard on the perimeter. There was a comparison made during one of his games. That he's like a chris bosh. I can see it. He has the same body type. He's got that touch from the jump shot. He's got that mid range game on lock. His three point shooting could use a little bit of work but you look at his former. He's going to end up turning into a decent three point shooter. And then you when you talk about his ability to rebound the ball be forced down low. Be a solid shot. Blocker a really good team. He passes the ball very willing passer. He averaged almost two and a half assists last season He can certainly do so many things. And i just want him to go to a good situation right. Now he's projected to be the fourth overall pick or one of those top four picks and out of the top four. I think is best situation would probably be maybe toronto because toronto does have chris boucher but evan mobely has that next generational talent is ability. He's kind of similar to a chris boucher but he's got way he's already way more advanced in those skills at the age that they were at like you know when. You're comparing the age like chris boucher. I think he's what twenty one. Already or twenty evan mobile. i don't think he's even is nineteen. i think i think he's nineteen. It's just it is really tough because those are very similar players. Maybe in that case maybe they go to a houston rockets team but the houston rockets. I'm sure they're trying to get a guard 'cause you know they're trying to move onto a next generation there another era. They don't want to stick with john wall. Eric gordon The christian would is a very solid big. So maybe they're trying to get a guard that can go along with him We'll just have to wait. And see but evan moby. I think has a lot of potential to be one of the better centers in the league. jalen greens also a very good player in this draft One of the best better prospects. i think he's ranked number two in in terms of the prospects. He's got incredible scoring ability and he had he makes it look good. He's one of the only guys He's one of the first guys to one of the first five star prospect from high school to go to the g. league to take that pathway and i i'm sure if if that becomes a regular thing jalen green going to be considered the pioneer of that and i mean he looked great in his g. league season. I mean the guy can can score in a bunch of ways off the dribble inside the pain and he's got the dribbling ability to be able to get by..

You know, it has been a difficult year and a half for everyone. This is ah, serious time under the covert program protocols, but at the same time, this is a business and if the link is going to provide a safe environment for these guys to go play, I think the league is going to keep trying to push forward to provide The normal day to day things that go on, which is an All Star game, and I know that's tough for the players. They don't get to see their families again because their families probably won't be able to come to that bubble. And it's not a weekend like the normal All Star weekend where you're gonna have all the events and all of the hoopla and a lot of it really is for the fans in the building s so I could see where they're coming from, but also see the league moving forward on this.

"Before we went to break. We were hanging on my every word of how you really like the Raptor coming out of the east. So, Jordan, I'll give you the floor. Please enlighten me. Tell me why. Well, you know, when you lose Co I Leonard from this team. It was of no fault for anybody to think that the run in Toronto had come to an end. But let's not forget all the pieces around, Kawai. Remain, which means that this is a teammate of championship milk. These are guys that have that experience, have that confidence and have implemented a style that is clearly winning basketball. A and you lose a cool I lettered, which is massive. There's no overcoming that. Except for the fact that Paschal Sockem has turned into a super star in his own right. It's the same type of game his usage has just been been is usage rate is higher, and so what? He gave them in sample size before playing alongside a guy like Cole I. Leonard has now become the focal point in a lot of ways he came out of the gates a little bit slow in the serious versus Nets. Countess tried with 26 points in last match up, but it's those guards I love love love The Raptor Guard play. Kyle Lowry is masterful and how he gets the whole thing going, How we pushed his tempo. He's a piece of playmaker. He's a shotmaker. He's all those things. Fred Rand Vito with a catch and shoot what he's been doing their percentage wise is astounding. This a confident bunch, Then you've got the got the the other pieces surrounding pieces around them. O g. N O B is a two way player Chris Boucher make some big shots with his team surgeon Baka Norm Powell in the pace that he plays with in the open floor. An incredible athlete, Mark Castle. I just think that this is a team that knows who they are. That is a that is a fantastic outside perimeter shooting team. They're rebounds that defends and has guys that can step up throughout a game. Multiple different pieces. We've talked about those superstars, and there's not quite a super superstar. There's a lot of stars on his roster and Nick Nurse the job he's done. I am happy to hear that he was announced Coach of the year because who did a better job than Nick? Nurse? I just think that this is another team that has a style of play that works in a lot of ways. They feel like the books. But they could do it in the full court in transition, but they get also do it in a half court. They could generate offense and half court. That's huge. If the Raptor still had Kwai and this is a very obvious statement. They would far in a way be the favorite in the East, which is pretty remarkable when you take a superstar away and you still have people picking them. To win the East. The guys that were role players around Kawai have now formed into a group superstar team, and that in itself is impressive. The Raptor just completely dominated the Nets on Friday. They're going for a best of seven first round playoff series sweep. It's just incredible to me how the Toronto Raptors have played against the Brooklyn Nets, who let Let me just remind you, the Nets. Sometimes I don't feel especially in their last game. The Nets are always the best measuring stick, especially thinking about the superstars. They have left it home. When the Nets are good, and the Nets have their superstars in place, they're going to be really good. But right now, can you really use the nets of a measuring stick to tell you how good the Toronto Raptors are? No, no, no, of course not. But what you can say is, you know the teams that are expected to do things doing and what is most important to this one show when you asked me if this is a big deal is and that's I mean, that's no longer even have Joe Harris now like this, a group that has limp to the finish. It's been admirable with how they competed. But clearly I got no type of five firepower to match But here's what comes down to is It's the fourth game. Get the sweep, Close it out, Take care of business, get some rest and move forward, And that's what these raptors need to be thinking. And I know with again going back to a team that's won a championship. The understand how to Dr Guys. Cross cities had a punctuated Siri's. I've got great faith in them. A Celtics and six years go off here. It's really interesting is in the middle of the third Boston holding on 63 60 currently looking to build on that lead, But this one's been very back and forth. I measure a lot on the Celtics in a game like this, their ability to close out you know, you heard Doyle and be talk about I'm a superstar. I don't want this on my resume that being a sweet I mean, talk about a low bar. But today I want to see the killer in these Celtics. I want to see their approach and say, Hey, we don't want the Sixers to hang around and all we want to get things done. I got a great faith in the Raptor that they will absolutely do that. Straight talk Wireless, No contract. No compromise. Let's continue this MBA conversation, though. Yesterday Jordan, you and I were watching the thunder and the Rockets together and it looked like the Rockets had the thunder. And then over. Time came and the Rockets missed their first seven shots of overtime. Now you have no heart and he filed out you already were without Westbrook, but they absolutely collapsed down the stretch. Air. Gordon looks sloppy. He took bad shots. I just I I was not impressed at all with the way the Rockets finished the game yesterday. How do you see that? Siri's now playing out? So I know you got a lot of a lot of faith in these rockets. I don't actually I you did yesterday. Yeah. I mean, you can't take my one game pick and say that's how I feel about the teeth for holes here. That is not how I feel about these Rockets move forward. I think the reliance on the outside shot Aneesh system like that can only take you so far. And we've had these conversations time and time again about James Harden. What he means to the game of people say they'll appreciate it more when he's gone. People talk about him. It's maybe. What does that even mean? Maybe maybe just saying that the level of talent isn't being appreciated because how different oven approach the Rockets have to the game. He's a ball stopper. He's arguably maybe the best offensive player one on one the game has ever seen. Maybe I know Michael Jordan. The conversation. Nobody that is in the conversation is the conversation. And then there's the one be after that. James Harden is maybe that one beat. I mean, he's that good offensively, But man is a tough to be the other four players on the floor with him or the guys coming off the bench because how do you get a rhythm? This guy's taking so many shots when he grabs that ball. It is a true ball stopper in every sense of the word, And then it's all focused on what James can give you. James Harden had to carry that team down the stretch because Take the ball out of everybody else's hands..

Can't really go into a series like like say there's a hypothetical Raptors rockets series I. Don't know that the rockets can go in comfortably and be like, okay. This is what the raptors are going to defend, and this is how beat Houston is hung. Some point totals on Toronto this year and obviously that hyper aggressive doubling of James Harden didn't work out because the Ben mclemore drops eighth threes or whatever. But that's an example where I think over the course of the series Houston may be has to rethink their approach or Toronto game the game. Changes things up and I think you know honest the the quote from your honest that he gave our colleague. Eric. Name of the Athletic Wisconsin. Last year after the playoffs that you know he, he had nightmares of these guys, all traps. Well, the raptors can do that to you all over the floor and Obgyn and OBI has taken the Koichiro in that on a clutch possession. He's going to be the one driving a at least if the point of tappers is a wing, he's going to be the one trying to drive them into those traps. Casale or Vanfleet has become elite at sitting in the driving pocket where he's there to to create leads the League in deflections has this rates steal rate. And then the raptors close out and scramble so well that even if you pass well out of those situations, you know they led the League in blocked three point shots Siachen Manana kind of experts Scra- running out Chris Boucher's not gonNA play meaningful minutes and in a playoff series but he has a crazy person scrambling out to corner shooters. So they can do all of these things and I think you know I don't think there are soft spots in the defense if you if you either look at. What is an eight-man rotation? Look like for the playoff series Terrence Davis is probably the weakest spot attacked simply. Serve, certainly, not Serge Ibaka of but as far as a backup center goes, you can offer a little rim protection at a little switch ability. You're fine there. You talked about Powell and Patrick mccaw but he was the guy that they turn to kind of stabilize bench defenses too, and then there are extra forward if they need. One is Rhonda, Hollis Jefferson. Who based on data from Christian and our sue over at people index was the league's most versatile defender this. Year and who the raptors used on Janas for long stretches in regular season game. So I just I don't think there's that spot you know short of Matt Thomas Getting into the rotation because the half court can't get it going I. Don't know where the soft spot is that you attack in the rafters defense I think I think the strategy is probably to play a ton of shooting and the fact that the raptors give up a historic rate of corner threes.
