"Even if they did, I can't see Greg Popovich wanting to trade with the Los Angeles Lakers. That's another factor that we have to consider there. Yeah. I was definitely surprised that that rumor came out about the John Tay Mary though. Yo, I don't understand what that's about. I mean, the thought was, well, they're gonna have to pay them before they're really good. And I get that, but man, you gotta get a lot in return from it. Maybe the spurs get it. But, yeah. I don't know. If I'm the spurs, I'm just hanging on to dejante Murray and trying to build team out right. Yeah, for sure. Sonny said, if we decide to trade Russell Westbrook for some trade pieces, is there a chance that some of those trade pieces will be gone by June 29th? Yeah. So if the Lakers say we would love to trade for Gordon Hayward and Kelly O'Brien junior and they're planning on working out that kind of deal once Russell Westbrook picks up that player option. Tomorrow, Gordon Hayward could get traded somewhere else? Yes, that is entirely possible. Again, the Lakers because Kendrick nunn already picked up his player option. He had an earlier deadline to pick up the option. The Lakers could trade Kendrick nun tomorrow. They could trade Taylor Horton Tucker. Those guys are under contract. Russell Westbrook is not. Until he is, they can't trade him. Yeah. I wish Russell was yesterday though. We probably would have said something happened today though. Players don't want it to be before the draft. Teams do. And so, but it's fairly most of them are the last day possible, which is June 29th. Bro, are you guys going to be at VidCon 2022? Was it planning on it? But it said, you guys are my favorite YouTubers. Thank you. Love to shake your hand and say, keep up the good work. The best place to do that will be in Las Vegas. For summer league, we will be out there. We'll be recording out of the blue wire studio. We'll do some live shows and stuff like that there. So if you do want to come hang out and check out a show, we will publicize all the info and exactly when we'll be there and everything. But we will be out there the very least will be out there for the Lakers first game. Against the Phoenix Suns, which I believe is the 8th, 8th. Yep. So we will be out there in Las Vegas in force, by the way. I think pretty much the entire team is coming out. It's going to be, it's going to be a blast. The entire Lakers nation crew is going to be out there. So that is a great great place if you do want to come and meet us and hang out..

We want to wrap this show with this latest news on the hornets looking to trade. Basically they're looking offload Gordon Hayward by attaching a first round pick to a deal. So that's it. Two years left on Gordon on his four year $120 million deal. That they signed when they swooped in and took him away from the Celtics and what do you know, they want out. And again, it's understandable because they have young stars here that they want to pay. Rozier is obviously worked out really well for them and you've got bridges and you've got lamelo and bridges wants a max deal and they want to be able to do that. So they want to get out for Gordon. And this sounds to me like they are giving Gordon Hayward away. Who wants him?.

"Those relationships matter. Those relationships matter and certainly Kevin McHale would have rather sent Kevin Garnett to the Celtics, his old club than to the hated Lakers. Why does this matter for the Lakers? Guess who's the GM of the Charlotte hornets? It's our old friend, our old pal. Mitch kupchak. And the hornets, just so happened to have, you know, kind of put out their Eric pink has had this the other day. That the hornets, now that they've hired Kenny Atkinson as their coach, they might just kind of hang on to Gordon Hayward. That makes no sense, right? Like, if you look, if you do anything more than just peruse that at the surface level, you go. That makes no sense. That's nonsense right there. Gordon Hayward, aging player, Kenny Atkinson, player development guy. Those two things are opposites. They're not connected. Now you could say new coach coming in, maybe you want veteran leadership on the team to help make sure the transition smooth. Look, there's arguments you can make. But I think what this is more is teams that are discussing Gordon Hayward trades because let's face it, we know the hornets would like to clear some salary. The Lakers can help accommodate that with Russell Westbrook's expiring contract, but teams look into a choir Gordon Hayward. The hornets are trying to put out there. Hey, we're not desperate to move them. Just like the Lakers have been doing. They've been putting out there that they're planning on keeping Ross. Oh no, we're definitely not trading him. No, no, no, no, no. Darvin ham, he's gonna fix everything. Yes. Let's go. Russell's gonna fit now because darvin ham is gonna change everything. And somehow it's gonna work. Do other teams buy it? Not necessarily, but it's still when you have to put out there. And ultimately, if the hornets do decide, they're gonna trade Gordon Hayward, or they're gonna try to get salary relief. Future salary so they can pay some of their future, some of the other guys that are gonna come up on contracts like lamella ball. Wouldn't it make sense.

"They're not. And they say, okay, well, you know, we want to free up some cap space. Okay, you can go trade for us. And if you're the Lakers and things aren't really clicking, but they're hanging in there and they can say, you know what? We really need a wing, and you can go get Gordon Hayward and Kelly obrey or whatever, whatever the deal is. And their contracts run an extra year, the hornets in that scenario, they're just trying to give themselves some spending power in 2023. The Lakers are willing to sacrifice that spending power in 2023 for the guys that they think might fit better. And again, that's a very specific scenario, but if that is the path we wind up walking down, I don't think it matters so much how well Russ is playing because the team acquiring him is just getting him from contract anyway. Again, fair point. All right, let's but I still think most likely, most likely, we're going to see the Lakers get involved in some trade negotiations with Russell Westbrook this summer and he'll be involved in the trade process. We already saw loads mentioned that Russ isn't expected to sign that extension or non extension. The player option until the end of the month. I've talked about this a lot. The reason for that is control so that if a trade pops up that he's involved in he does like the destination, he can sort of push it back because he doesn't have to sign that thing and tell June 29th he will wait until June 29th to sign it because otherwise the Lakers could trade him at the draft, but so that's something to note. I think the Lakers will look this top season potentially move him. And if the right deal is not there, it seems they are willing to bring him back. Let's bring in Cameron, Cameron, how are you? I'm.

"Robert Gonzalez said, hey Trevor, I believe the Lakers should target mo bamba this off season. I feel like he can be our brook Lopez to Giannis. But for AD, with AD and the honest role. Yeah, I mean, I don't think he's as consistent of a shooter, different player, the brook Lopez, but in terms of is he a guy that teams have to care about when he's behind the three point line, probably? I think they probably do. So it's an interesting option. And I like the younger, I think that he'd be an interesting fit for the Lakers if you can go get them probably talking about that taxpayer mid level though for him. If he may even get more out there on the market, but I'm interested. I'm interested if that's on the table that you can get him. I'm giving that a good look if I'm the Lakers. Yeah, that was gonna be my concern. Is he gonna go for that amount of money? I was thinking more like 8 to ten at minimum, honestly. Yeah. Yep. Agreed. Let's do a couple more here. Josh Jackson's still in the NBA. Yeah, he is. Here's a good one. Suds said, would you rather have Evan rochard, Terry Rogers, who he means, or Gordon Hayward? Gordon Hayward. He would rather have Gordon Hayward than Terry Richard, is that with contracts factored in or is that just in general? That's with contracts factored in Terry, just signed a new deal, believe he has four years left on that deal, Gordon Hayward, you released dawn into seasons and you can move on and have some cap space cap flexibility sooner. I also honestly, I take that back, Terry is a good fit as well. But yeah, it's more contract thing, honestly. What I think is interesting is that if I'm the Lakers, if I'm looking at LeBron and saying, whether or not he signs the extension, if I'm looking at LeBron and saying, most likely, he is leaving in 2024, which means we have two more seasons of LeBron. Yeah. If that's the case, a contract like Gordon Hayward has some appeal, because I'm not worried about 2023 cap space so much. If my thought process is LeBron is going to stick around for two more years. I'm not worried about 2023 cap space so much. So if I can get a guy like Gordon Hayward, who expires in 2024, when I know LeBron's probably sailing off into the sunset and he's going to go play with brawny, but that makes a lot of sense to have all the cap room in 2024 if it means you have to sacrifice some 2023 cap room. So be it. So be it because you're not really going to have that much space anyway if LeBron signs that deal that year. So I don't have a problem with that. I think there's some appeal, but if it was if the contracts are aside and you put both players out there and you said you can have either one of these players on the roster, I'm taking Terry Rozier. I agree. So I think that's something that matters. And then you have to think about too. Could you, if you really need a cap space, could you flip Terry Rozier that off season in 2024 to free up space? Probably. You never know what can happen, but probably. I mean, he's got, he's got value. All right, last one here..

"If that table is on the office on the table, I take that in the enzyme. But if you want quality role players that I think will be more useful that come with less, I guess, injury risk per se, then I think the Indiana wants the route you want to go in, but I'm definitely an agreement that I feel like Russ has an expiring has a lot more value. I don't know about the Charlotte deal only because I feel like the expectations for Gordon Hayward would be too high. I'm not saying he's the type to fold under the pressure, but I feel like people in the fans were expecting too much getting Gordon Hayward and Kelly ubre for Westbrook because at the beginning of the season I honestly did not like the westward trade only because his play style is he's just too ball dominant and I didn't think that would work well with LeBron. And I feel like everyone's expectations kind of like I mean this might be just BS, but I feel like the expectations of Westbrook this season hampered his play because it felt like every time I watched him play, he was stressed out. He wasn't he didn't look comfortable at all like he's basically the same player he was the year before in Washington, but the numbers don't lie. He was exponentially worse. And I feel like a lot of that had to do with expectations. I feel like we could compromise with solid role players like a Caruso type player who had no expectations, the same thing happened with Malik monk. He was a diamond in the rough this year. If we can get players like that for Westbrook, I would take that any day. I don't know what players were mentioned in the Indiana deal, but the players they have there have more to prove. So maybe they'd be hungrier. Heyward, I feel like would kind of just, you know, he plays the same position as LeBron. He didn't really have a great year after he got injured. I feel like it would just be kind of more of the same. I feel like we need to get we need to think smarter in terms of players we get for Westbrook instead of just trying to dump off his contract because he definitely won't be on the team this year. We just have to find the right suitor obviously, but I feel like we should definitely go for quality role players that are more of a guarantee. We need our team needs like Marcus smart as much as I hate to say that. We need salt and we need people like that rather than a Gordon Hayward or Kelly ubre who kind of are a little on the inconsistent side. I think the key here is look at the dollar amounts on the contracts, not so much the quality of players because those kinds of players that we're talking about as far as what the Lakers need. The teams that we're going to be trading with potentially are going to want to keep those guys. So it would be hard. But if those players exist and they're available by all means, I would love that. And to add on to his point really quickly, first off, not saying, in this case, they do numbers do definitely lie, film doesn't. And two, even though Gordon Hayward does play the same position as LeBron, technically, Gordon Hayward is a way better fit, paired next to LeBron, the Russ arguably ever was going to be. We've just seen Gordon Hayward that off ball road. He could shoot it..
"gordon hayward" Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"You need indeed. Vector nova chiming in here on THT said we should keep THD because Russ messed with his development. The Lakers have very little options to retain players. He's someone that they can retain. I think they're not many trades for him. So that's a good point there about Russ Russ being on the if Russell has gone THT, perhaps has more utility just because you have a bad fit. I mean, we said that last off season on paper, like how does this work and sure enough it did not work. But I want to finish with this guys king Carol asked a very simple question and I'm going to throw it to both of you guys and get your answers here. I'll Question is this? Does Anthony Davis play the center position next season? I should qualify that. The majority of his minutes at center. Do you play him there next season? Is that your plan going into the off season? I'd say probably about 50 50, so I don't know if that's quite a majority, but I think I don't think he's ever going to be a full-time center. I know not only does he not want to. I just don't know necessarily know how smart that is given his injury history. So I definitely think in a perfect world you find a true center that could also stretch the floor because that's kind of what you want by putting him at the 5. You want that floor spacing. Well, if you could find a big man who could bang with some of the other bigs in the league down low, while also stretching the floor offensively, I think that could help AD on both ends of the floor to be honest. So I'll say 50 50, but you know it all depends on roster construction. It depends who they get. If they get a couple bigger wings like Gordon Hayward and Kelly ubre, then I definitely think you'll see more of AD at the 5 because those guys can help on defense and help with rebounding, which we saw was a big problem this season..

"Where they need a center and they have a contract to move that could conceivably match, but I just don't see I think it's just too old for that group. Too because Celtics and Toronto are sort of intertwined, right? Yeah, they're tight. They're fighting for that. They're probably going to be the two teams. If the nets continue to downward spiral to compete for that 6 spot, do you want to make that team a little bit better? I mean, again, I mean, I just sat here and said how the cells can be a better start a lot of they didn't have Alan there. But I will admit, that's not a group without has been fantastic. And because they're staggering the big has worked, but I do worry, like, you know, you send them north, Nick nurse figures out, how to play appointments a game and they get a little bit better. Now all of a sudden do they get the 6 over you and you're in the plane land and we're looking and going, man, probably shouldn't trade at Al Horford. Tragic is obviously intriguing, depending on what happens with your backup. Point guard spot, but what's the long-term play there too? Besides getting off that money and so I don't know. But I like what your headset, I like that you're trying to have to know though. What's auction number two? I mean, option number two is Gordon Hayward, which is a joke, but the contracts do match up there. They need a center. So that's a fun one to throw out. It's what every team needs, but it'll never happen, so. And then beyond that, you gotta get.

"Is a path, even though these guys are under contract, one of them may want to take sooner than later. I guess I would just wonder, you know, what's your view of how well these guys can coexist and take this team where they want it to be and where the team wants it to be versus one of them even at a young age and again being under contract still could get a little fed up and say, you know what? I do have some power despite having a contract and I'm going to exercise it. Look, I think that these two guys ache should want stay together and be should flourish together. And see that they haven't yet is mind boggling to me. And trust me, it's mind boggling to people around the Celtics as well. I mean, I go back to the Conference Finals in 2018, game 7. The Celtics have Cavaliers on the garden floor. The Cavaliers were looking they I don't think they wanted to go in face Golden State because they knew it was going to happen. And interestingly, as I've written a bunch before, that the warriors were rooting hard for the Cavaliers that day. You know, this is the Celtic team without Gordon Hayward who's been injured for the entire year since game one. Without Kyrie Irving, who's out for the earth at that point. The warriors did not want to face those Celtics. They were much more of a threat to them in their eyes than were the Cavaliers. And the Celtics botched up that game by and again, I'll say it, it's not guys being jerks. It's guy saying, hey, give me the ball, I'll go make a play. I'll take responsibility. I'll go do this. And that just through the team killed him. And it's killed him at different points ever since that. You look at playoffs and, you know, a couple of years ago, the Conference Finals, you know, did they get caught in a little bit of hero ball? Well, everyone around the team, their coach was saying, you know? So this from Brad now to inmate to the people around in the organization before the other coaches, they've been trying to get these guys to play more team ball and not just them everyone..

"It's going to be a tough, pretty tough to thread the needle, I think, and get something that helps the achieve other goals. How much are they going to settle just to get off that money will be really interesting to see? Yeah, there's also not a lot of expiring contracts across the league right now in that larger size. A lot of the stuff that's going on with extensions in the last few years has taken some of those off the table and just the timing of where we are compared to the cycle that happened when the caps might happen. A lot of big contrast got signed and then teams got a little bit more reasonable with not giving out that type of contract for a few years. There just aren't a period where there's not a lot of matching salary that makes sense for other than significantly better players who just can't get or players who just have a lot of money for a company. They're not expiring, right? They're out there bad players for more money and just exacerbate the problems. So it is difficult to find the reasonable trade there. It's not a necessity that they move him right to maneuver around that down the line. And maybe some of those ways would turn out much better. Do you want to keep salary means that you could trade them as an expiring in the off season in a much larger trade? How much is that factor that happens? How much did that factor into your consideration right now? Like tempers? I know it's like an outside chance, but if you do move out for at least three two or three smaller deals, that kind of limits in terms of what you can put together there easily. That has to be at least somewhat of a consideration when you're a Bradley Beal off season pursuit is still potentially in the cards. Yeah, I mean, I feel that that's a little bit repeating the mistakes of not trading Gordon Hayward..
"gordon hayward" Discussed on NBA Front Office w/ Keith Smith & Trevor Lane
"You are in a position where if you're Detroit, why not? Because the worse the sun's match and you still have all that cap space and you go move it into different directions. So it does make things a little more difficult for Phoenix. If that's where you want to go because it's just, you've made this situation now less clean than it was months ago. Now, they still can come to an agreement with him before anybody else can do anything and get them signed and lock them in and off they go. They have his match rates. I'm with you. I'll be very surprised if he's playing for another team. Next season. But you're now open the path is now open for down the line for that's happened. If you're the sons, would you rather pay 8 and a max and have 5 years set no player options or would you rather match a deal that's a four year deal and he can get out in three and then realistically in two, you're thinking about trading and what's your preferred option there? Yeah, there's the first one. But I like Deandre and I thought I thought when it looked like the suns were gonna win the finals. Eton was a big part of why they would have won the final. So I think you lock him up with Devin Booker. Now you have your younger core locked up as Chris Paul whenever it happens eventually ages out and moves along. You now have that there it is. So you've got the best of both worlds now and you have things locked up in the future. I worry about it now. I always say with restricted free agents and when guys don't get an extension, nobody knows everything about them better than their current team. Those teams know their medical better than everybody else does. They know what their work ethic is like, what they project for their production to be would the rest of the Ross are all that stuff. So maybe this songs have very valid reasons to move on. But I don't know from what we've shown now. He's also not one of those centers that's going to get played off the floor where all of a sudden it's like, well yeah, but now we close the games with a $30 million on the bench. He's not that kind of guy. He can be out there all the way for you. Well, if you're the sons, you have to be worried about like you said Gordon Hayward, whenever he's a free agent next. Does this stick in his mind? Does he remember? Hey, this team didn't take care of me. This team made me go sign with somebody else, right? And it only takes one. It takes if it's the distance, if it could be anybody. It takes one team to give him that offer, and next thing you know, you're the sons, your leverage is gone, and you've got a guy who's hitting free agency earlier than you wanted to, that is supposed to be a building block long-term. And that's just that's not the scenario that you want to be in. From the piston side, if it works, and somehow the sun say, oh, never mind. We don't want anything. Cool..

"I'm like, I'm pretty ambivalent on what we've seen from both of them this year. Like, I'm not worried about it, I guess, is what I would say. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I have a faith in all those guys on that front. But yeah, hey, Hayward would be interesting for them and that way. I've wondered have you do you know if they've thought about trading to bias? 'cause I've always thought that the fluidity of their lineups could be impacted by Tobias being there because you sort of a bigger not necessarily stiff, but I don't know. I always kind of wondered if he put sort of a line up constraint on their options. I don't know if they thought. I was thinking about a deal where he could maybe end up with the kings at one point. I thought he'd be an interesting pick up for them. But he makes so much money. Like, two, it's kind of like harder to move him. Yeah. That's the tricky part because like with Tobias, I agree with you like I think that the ball gets a little bit sticky in his hands, right? Like, and he doesn't throw incredible entry passes like he's not. I think they could have a better fit with Joel embiid at the four spot. But I also just don't know. He's so good that it's hard. You can't just give him up for nothing either. And I don't know who you would move him for. 'cause Charlotte, part of the reason I wonder if Charlotte might be willing to move Gordon Hayward is the emergence of miles bridges along with PJ Washington's existence there. And the fact that they need a center at some point to pair with miles bridges, especially if you're going to play him at the four, you need real substantial rim protection. So I kind of am wondering, like, is there a chance that the Gordon Hayward move, he's making 30 plus $1 million a year? You're going to have to pay miles bridges, $25 million a year given how he's played so far this year. Like there's no way that San Antonio Detroit, Oklahoma City, he fits on all of their timelines like they would give miles bridges a lot of money. I think this off season, that Charlotte's gonna have to match. So I wonder if Charlotte given that they just extended Terry Rozier might want to clean their books a little bit with a Gordon Hayward move, but I don't know. I mean, it's tricky. And especially if we're trying to get Gordon Hayward to Philly and Tobias Harris, like you can't really do that. He's a four man. You can't mix him with miles, bridges, if we're thinking that that could be an option. I don't know what the I think they kind of just have to keep to buy us and make their move in the back court at the end of the day. Yeah. I don't know. And I guess Heyward becomes a little bit more they bring them in. I don't know if they specifically brought them in for this reason, but he was a nice, I mean, at the beginning of the year this year, they were sitting lamelo and crunch time. So I guess it's been sort of an easy process with lamella to get him to the point where you totally trust him all the time. But he's making good progress on that front and like you said the emergence of miles as a passer as a guy that can be on ball a little more. That helps you and you know you can kind of Hayward can kind of move on to the next situation..

"So I don't know if it's a straight situation or what it is management situation on the team's part but Brown. I felt that kind of creeping up these last couple of years here, especially last year. I mean, I don't want to call them injury prone, but he's trending in that direction. Squats kid, I'm not ready to call him injury prone. I'm not even. He's not like Gordon Hayward status. But you don't want to get don't want to get that label. He's somewhere between close. Yeah. Depending how the season ends, I think that'll be the new label for him. Yeah, if you're playing 60 games every year at 82, whatever the percentage I'm not saying we're worried about it last year, remember? Possibilities. We started talking about it last year. Like, thank you. Goes down for the year. This could be a thing, you know? So that was a weird one. Injuring a risk that's out of now. Yeah. But that's what's gonna happen, John. There'll be something like this in the end. Just running back. You know, that was a weird one, you know. And then I keep saying, I keep saying that about rob. You can't understand. That's going to be in Rome. Never had that fair shot yet, because you're having been wrong. I went to sprained ankle. Like I said, I was joking while you were out when it happened. I tweeted. I'll see you in February. And a few of my meager following got on me like, dude. Your haters. Yeah, they're like, you gotta be negative, blah, blah, blah, he's right back in there, and then what do you know? What a play. He's trying to be crafty there, the Euro step. He stepped right into it. It's like four guys exploded. Poor guy. Just like, you can't do this. You're a, I don't want to laugh, 'cause it's terrible. I mean, he strings together some good play, he has a great first quarter, I thought, good energy cutting. It was awesome. Yeah. It really was..
"gordon hayward" Discussed on Game Theory Podcast
"And for the jumper, I never thought that that double elbow jetted out non square kind of crazy funk flick thing would have him shooting 40% from three on 7 attempts per game. I probably even undersold where he would be right now, like we're talking to your two at 19.6 rebound 6 assist. 42% of the field, 40 from three, 94 for the free throw line. He was never hailed as like this efficient shooter or passer or scorer all the time, but he certainly getting there. I'd say it's ahead of schedule for where I projected. Yeah, the jumper is definitely ahead of schedule. He's always had great touch, like you looked at him on floaters. You always looked at four years ago. Yeah, the way that the ball came off of his hand, it always looked pretty clean whenever the offhand wasn't like completely right. Sabotaging, frankly, it's a way to put the still shots that you see of warm ups, it's still like a wild release point and how much God hand, but I don't know, maybe it's muscle memory at this point where he's just taking hundreds of thousands of jumpers and his body's just used to not be a swear and he is not also not shy to pull up from wherever at any time. And I think it's worth just noting why I would still take him over Anthony Edwards. I think he just impacts the game offensively a little bit more. He has that same scores, mentality. He does it pretty darn close to just as efficiently as Edwards, I think they're right around the same level of true shooting percentage, for instance, and he just drives offense at a more efficient level. Like the fact that Charlotte right now is what, I think that they're like top 5 in offensive efficiency. And he's the driving force behind that. Miles bridges looks really good. Gordon Hayward has continued to be one of the top ten like small forwards in the NBA, right? Terry Rozier is an even really shooting yet. They're hard to guard, but they're hard to guard in part because lamella really pushes really an incredible sense of what an efficient shot is and how to move the ball within the construct of that offense. So I would still take lamelo because I think his impact on offensive basketball is still much higher than Anthony Edwards. Even though it's great in and of itself. It's a speedy push them to. Their childhood wants to personally in possessions, their fourth league and pace. So they're playing like him and although they're draft guys really haven't played and aren't in the rotation. They're at least trying to aim to build around the pieces they have while also adding these complementary bits where it can add to lamelo's bag and not take it away and not try to slow them down. Yeah. Okay. Let's hit James wiseman next just because this will be a quick conversation and it's obviously interesting on some level. We haven't seen James wiseman yet this year. He's still recovering from injury and it seems like they're enthusiastic about what they've seen from him in practice. I'm pumped to see James wiseman. This team is awesome. They are my I've mentioned it before, but they're my favorite team to watch right now in the NBA, the Golden State Warriors. If they can if James wiseman is the guy that they thought they were drafting..
"gordon hayward" Discussed on The Garden Report | Boston Celtics Post Game Show from TD Garden
"And then one more goal, I'll say that I was impressed with is Schroeder. I mean, he just seems more and more comfort at that point guard role. It doesn't really matter who's out there with him. He's playing his game. Well, Shirai, I want your take, and then we can kind of go piece by piece here because there's a lot I thought Schroeder was good. I thought markets like I said made some plays late. I do think the double point guard line up the combo has not been great together, but obviously there were good things that happened late because both guys were making plays individually, but up until this point has not been outstanding, but I'm sure on what stood out to you. You know, the guy that stood out to me was Marcus smart, because he got back to doing Marcus smart things. I mean, this is a game where he was three for 12. Shot had a crappy shooting game, and yet he made a significant impact on winning, forcing the skills. And I thought, after that one still near the end of regulation where he's got the ball. And you know, Dan, well, it crosses my, even for a millisecond to Jack that shot up. He looks over to the bench. He may want to time out, they get a timeout. And obviously they didn't get a great shot at the very end of regulation. But the point is he didn't buy into that impulse of just jacking up a shot. Yeah. So everybody's gonna shout out to Gordon Hayward, who clearly played like someone who had no clue about who the hell he was playing again. I know. I mean, you know Marcus smart is going to make a play on the ball. You get a hand on that, man. Yeah. What the hell was he thinking? But you know what I like? You know what the moment of the game was for and so I don't want to go everyone's gonna be like, oh, you're going negative here. I think what Schroeder does well highlights what Marcus does not because when they're in the game together, you see Schroeder getting into the lane in a way that Marcus can not schroders an imperfect player, but if Marcus isn't a dead eye shooter and not able to get into the lane to penetrate and then to kick her to dish, he's very limited in what he's able to do in a half court offense. And it really is highlighted when you see Schroeder playing such high energy and getting to the basket and putting the pressure on the defense. So I am a little worried about the Marcus smart experiment overall, but what we need is Marcus just to do four 5 6 of those things that he does to impact the game in multiple..
"gordon hayward" Discussed on The Garden Report | Boston Celtics Post Game Show from TD Garden
"Season that you knew age? Fluke with with near absolute certainty. Wanted to be a Celtic, you know, the closest thing. And that was Gordon Hayward, I guess. And and to be honest, if Gordon would have made, you know, in all NBA team that last year in Utah, I'm not convinced that he would have came to Boston because you taught were to offer him a Superman. Extra Thirty million. Yeah book Miami Miami to the point where he actually visited Miami. So it was just them picking up the phone and Joe Holland at your agent. He actually looked into that as a possibility. So Robin was promised. I think this is hedging your bets here. You're hedging your bets a little cuz you didn't want to be off but nothing. And this is the best player they had in their estimation. And they said they took they picked but we will re-sign Marcus. We're not going to, we're not going to re-sign. I'm 5 or something. All right, Sergeant now it's going to take quickly. I'm fine with them, choosing markets over 48, if that, if it really came down with that, they didn't have to, they didn't have to, but somebody obviously sounds like they did something to help. They dead. Yeah, so it's for all intentions purposes. They had to. So right, because they, they must just know they made up their minds. We're not going. Whatever it takes to sign, and we're not going there, even bother anything. I disagree with Joe Sway. And I know Bobby feels this way too, is that they, they felt they need, they needed to sign. Marcus Rusty would have pouted pouted his way. I totally disagree with that too. I just feel like there's such a little like, such a little baby thing. Like you guys are professionals like it's playing contractors all the time. But agency like like the last year, some of them like it. You know what I think I think what would have happened was any time he played a bad game. That would be the narrative that we in the media would run. Would we say? Oh, well, you know Marcus history for 17 deal with the last song about us. Yeah, and and that's bullshit and and he knows this bullshit and we know that's bulshit. Yeah, he plays hard every game. He does not always play smart. He does not always play great, but his effort 9 a.m. Nine out of a hundred times. It's going to be at a level that you want from your players and they and and and to me a few of the Celtics. And, you know, that your only shot of exceeding expectations. This year is to play with great effort. Why would you invest in a one guy that, you know, 9 at night out is going to give you that one character trait that's worth. That was worth the investment. I think. And also his, another thing, guys. I feel like the the old school like, okay, seven up cap space and then go get them mentality, just doesn't always work. I mean, ask the Miami Heat when they, they tried to line things up for a young officer, Google. I mean, luckily, they recovered..
How Joel Embiid Became An MVP Contender
"Also derek. Last season ended in pretty disappointing. Fashion for philadelphia. That'll do it. The boston celtics move on by defeating the seventy sixers. Four games to nothing. The first ever went wrong in that first round against boston for embiid and the sixers. I think a bunch of things went wrong. First of all. You can't start without saying this. Ben simmons zone. Outside of that sort of what went wrong was wrong with the sixers all year. The team didn't fit well yet. Al horford and josh richardson. Who were tough it's around a post op center and embiid. Richardson shooting for three ended out. They didn't have a real reliable second often times during the series alec. Burks was your secondary options on offense recipe. Brad stevens and the celtics and bead romeo leg for the rookie thinking about double vacates birds. Who can't make them pay. So there is a lot of mistakes that were made roster building and there were missing. Simmons isn't it was a tough series for sure. Can you remind us what the narrative was after that first round exits surrounding joel embiid and his performance. Yeah it was fascinating because on one hand when they came back into the bubble they had spent pretty much those months in between working with you all to get better at handling dull teams and it came out in the bubble in orlando during the seeding games and some of that had started to show and he looked like he was handling double teams better and he came out against the celtics. And i think that he converted back a little bit in terms of struggling with the double team and bead backing down ties gordon hayward on the help and they come up with the steel but he was dominant as an individual score. That was locked off and be. Did it again. Safe focused joel. Fb five of seven. Give him thirteen of his team's thirty one. We'll lifesaver on that. So i think a lot of people looked at you made steps. He did most of what he could do individually. He just didn't have enough help around him. Well that disappointing end to a long season led to a number of changes within the sixers organization. Can you take us through. Some of the moves that philly made in the off season and how they related to unlocking the better performances from joel. Embiid is off the front office. Obviously brought daryl morey To work above. Elton brand and then they brought in doc rivers replace brett brown and then you had some pretty key addition to traded al horford for essentially danny green. And then josh. Richardson for steph curry. And i think those two editions have been pretty big with joel. Because i think if you look either trade you'd say the sixers got the lesser talent but the fit and just having to players in curry and green. Who the other team can't leave has been huge for. Joel shoe autom- double wall and pass. And you miss accomplish you. Miss a lot of shots You just straightening and then you start thinking of all you gotta do everything by yourself. 'cause everybody's not made the shots. Richardson horford they were not only inconsistent shooting. If they are unwilling shooters and they'd hesitate any office. Which is kinda come grinding down to a halt not only is curry making his shots and all these green making his permanent shots. But the ball is moving around the perimeter. Much quicker than it was. So there's more consequential doubling joel embiid than there ever has been monarch got a lot of assists but Ogle gets one us open. Invite double or triple team has a lot of hockey else's shake milton hinton to downtown ten points and ten minutes off the bench make no mistake that play which about drawing the double and then the ball moving east gotta be willing to be content. That the ball's the swing opposite and he's gonna creative for shots teams are now left with a real choice whereas before i think the whole strategy just send you all need help and disguise it a little bit senate in different locations but if you send it frequently enough you're going to confuse joel embiid or the sixers aren't going to have the talent or the players to make him pay. I think that's changed now.

Number two. It's actually I had this junior year in high school. So the fact that it fits well, I just want to show that I'm not as fat as I looked yesterday when I was choking on a chicken bone. Wow. So you could still fit into something that you fit into in high school XL two big, Excellent folks.

Is that Jersey cut bigger than your normal jersey. No, This is a standard exhale, Nike Jersey from the year 2004. Now I will say yes, they make the fabric a little like tighter knit. These are like the old mesh style, so I understand there probably is more room to breathe, but it's not like I personally resized this thing that fit me like it's a tent. And why are you wearing a hat? And what is that? Well, we're in the hat. Is that your national championship that say Had I got for my wife for Christmas. That simply has my twitter handle lot of so oh, my God. Oh, my goodness. And you want to take shots at Schwartz for self promotion? No. This was laying out and again.

So I am now very self conscious. You got bombarded yesterday My people are gonna die. You're gonna die. And people taking solace in that I'm gonna Dolly. Now. Did your wife get you a hat? That simply has your Twitter handle on it as kind of a gag gift, or do you? Do you really want a hat? Toby? A walking billboard to promote yourself Christmas list. It is absolutely gotten by her as a gag gift because she thinks I have an ego and I need to be put in check. So now you think so Highly self here, walk around with a twitter handle on it.

Right? So anyway, every time we would go to like a bar with them, or, like, you know, occasionally seem that he always had the T shirt promoting his shows and stuff. We always made fun of him for it, so she wanted to get me this as a way to make fun of it. The problem is that has become so comfortable now. Speak. I'm so comfortable, so I am wearing it A I love Danielle. Because these are the types of gifts. Oh, you've got an ego will Now walk around your Twitter handle on your head. Okay, Here you go.

Gordon Hayward Day-To-Day With Fractured Finger He Suffered During Hornets Debut
"Charlotte hornets announced. Gordon hayward sustained a fracture on a finger in his writing hand no word on how long he will be out although right now he's being listed as day to day. of course. This is xtra relevant because the hornets just gave gordon a one hundred twenty million dollar contract over the next four years and of course he does have an history recently. So we'll keep an eye on that.
Why the Celtics Might Be Starting to Tune Out Coach Brad Stevens
"I do wonder if the Celtics are starting to tune out Brad it took eight years guys Bob, you know, I think Larry said to you after 3 years, we stopped listening and I love Brad Stevenson. I think the coaches love Brad Stevens. I don't know if players love Brad Stevens. That's what I'm working. Love them. I just don't know if if again they have that respect form in a sense of of that. He can really motivate them and he can like push the right buttons. I think he knows one button to push and I'm not sure again. Sometimes you gotta jump guys. Sometimes you get to get up up in them. And that's never going to be Brad Steve Jobs. That's in and to me it's not just Brad. So this is Bob. There's nobody else in the staff that can do that. Like go get a veteran guy that everybody respects that can really jump these guys and get on them and be the bad guy cuz that's not Jay larranaga. That's not Jerome Allen. None of these guys. So not even Turner What's that? Not even sure, right? Yeah. I mean everything's going to be a player turned coach now like he's oh that's not going to be his role. I mean, I love Evan Turner. I think it's going to be a really good coach someday. But yeah, I think you're right to some extent. The only male say is getting rid of Hayward probably solves a few issues Dynamic, you know, that that he caused not off to his, you know through his own, you know doing like wasn't his fault, but but Gordon obviously Brad was trying to play him two years ago and get him minutes and get him. And I think a lot of players resented that
The Winners and Losers of ESPN's Top 100 NBA Player Rankings
"Loves lists are fun to debate ESPN came out with one of theirs loves to hate lists, but go on they love to hate him. Yes why I used to hate him cuz you're usually very wrong or cuz everyone's got their own lists. Like everyone had the same listed will be everyone hates. Everyone hates lists yet. They love them because you can debate them endlessly and ESPN sent out. Its top 100 list up until Player 11 and Jayson Tatum is the last one on the list. So he didn't crack the top ten. Well up to 11 is quite an accomplishment for him. Kemba Walker all the way down to 48 Marcus Smart jumps from 87 years. Thirty-seven on this list Jaylen Brown goes up from 51 to 32 Jayson Tatum. Also a big leap up to 11:00 and again lists our lists and we're not holding this as holy gospel, but we still am kind of talk about it because it is interesting and they're fun to debate our friend Gordon Hayward comes in at 44. So Marcus Smart is better than Gordon Hayward apparently in ESPN's eyes who is slightly better than Kemba Walker who's been slightly diminished because of his knees and his uncertainty. So we'll see what's happening there. But guys your initial thoughts on this list. Mine is obviously smart way too high and Jaylen be a little bit low. Yeah, and if you compare to last year, you know, I was top-heavy with the town in terms of your percentage of the League's top twenty five guys. I did a top-25 myself. I did my own last game of the regular season last year and I had four Celtics in the top thirty. So that's different. Now, you know kind of takes a dip shocking it takes a dip with the or something off the top 20. I almost addicted when when John was talking about how much he hates list because I'm kind of with him on that but nothing nothing. Nobody list that I hate more is a preseason list and then Bob to say that you have a post like what NBA Finals list, that's probably the second worst one between capital mean anything it was between the regular season and the playoffs and you're right the list off completely by the end of the postseason that you took time. Okay. Hey out of your life. Hey, we gotta check the content here. How long a couple of months? No, you suck. Changes it rapidly after the whole Jimmy Butler situation that we saw in the playoffs and I think that's an interesting thing about this list to definitely considering playoff runs quite a bit. I mean Jamal Murray gets into the top twenty thousand that's playoff performance right there. You talk about some of the other guys biggest surprise Zion nineteen like the Scion hype continues. What was he played Thirty games? Does Chicago Fire? Wow, I don't think there's eighteen guys in the league. I want in front of him. I'll tell you that if it's know what they'll list is it's not that they do these jobs. It does project. It does project out a little bit in terms of you know, kind of entering the season. So I think the 30 games you played is less of an issue. I do again want to talk about the Celtics here. All right, you know one by one cuz again, it doesn't matter where they are on a list but relative to their expectations for the year. It is important. Okay, because yep need if Marcus Smart is a is the is a tough 37 player in the NBA then that's a that's a trio that you can feel pretty good about I debate whether that's actually true I don't understand how long this went from 80s again it's a list we know it's not possible but how does from 87 to 37 in a year when it's offensive metrics went down in terms of efficiency his three-point shooting got worse his to point his overall field goal percentage was 34 I mean he was not again we know he can distribute we know how to feed other things offensively to make up for that but this is a guy who you are now you're now we are now asking a 34% field-goal shooter to shoot more and that's important to the team's success issue that worries me a little bit yeah I mean that's the part of the lift that thing is out the most right obviously because the market smart and there's two reasons one because of what we saw in the postseason he didn't have a great postseason his special In the Eastern Conference Finals, so that stands out to you as okay. Well, how did he get high on this list? The reason I think it got high on this list because just like everyone else is saying and what we've been talking about you don't take on a big role because of Kevin Walker Because of You Know the Way Gordon Hayward let and now this is huge void. He's going to take up a huge step in and I think he is p.m. Which of course this is why I hate these preseason the list because they're they're either getting wait till end of themselves down sizing, you know, it's either one of the other and with this one. I think they maybe just saying that they may be value mean Marcus Smart a little more than we do. I guess I guess the best way to put it I don't know. I don't think I would put them that off the list but I see why they did that because they know that his responsibility is going to expand ridiculously the next couple of months,
Celtics Training Camp May Kick Off Without Gordon Hayward As He Leaves Boston for Charlotte
"Camp camp for for the the Boston Boston Celtics. Celtics. But many are still talking about the teams off season with the opt out of Gordon Hayward, followed by the sign and trade with the Charlotte Hornets. And although there were many rumors about trades the Celtics could have made President of basketball operations Danny Ainge said today he won't discuss player names, but there were trade discussions. But I'm just saying that, you know, we did have a discussion with Indiana not gonna go into the details. And we knew what the risks were, and we knew what all the options we could do. Signing grades with Indiana with Charlotte, and we thought that any one of those options were good like number One option was getting Gordon to come back and the Red Sox
Did Boston Celtics Overplay Their Hand?
"Boston. Overplay its hand. There were a lot of reports in the hours. Leading up gordon hayward signing that the celtics and the pacers were discussing a sign and trade gary washburn over the boston globe. He suggests that the pacers were willing to throw in miles. Turner the celtics water a miles. Turner plus package whether it's miles. Turner and tj warren or miles turner and victoria depot. That that that celtics package seemed to highly unlikely to be something the pacers would go for. Tj warrant is coming off a monster performance in the bubble and victor oladipo for all his injury issues. last year is still an all star level player. You don't give up to players of that caliber to get a player. That play like gordon hayward frankly so the celtics. They didn't walk away with nothing because they do have tristan thompson. Now they do have jeff teague. But i can see jeff how miles turner would goodness celtics uniform. And the guy is a three point shooting mobile shot-blocking big man. He's not perfect. He's been called soft before there's questions about positional fit. But something tells me brad. Stevens could do well with versatile. Big man who can shoot three pointer. I i just. I wonder if we'll look back on this in a year and wonder if the celtics overplayed their hand because miles turner in addition to all the things i said he's got a reasonable contract by nba standards anyway. Eighteen million dollars per year over the next three. What do you think of that. Do you think there's a chance the celtics overplayed their hands here. I don't know. I don't think so. Crass t taking a slightly different tact on it. Because i wasn't all that a or the whole idea of only getting mile turner back in the deal. I understand everything you just said But the celtics certainly just made a a decision that that's what they were looking for excitement. Lucy gordon hayward elsewhere without getting any say return on. I don't mind that trying to get a little bit more in it. Not working out for them and again. I'm hearing all your points what you're saying about mouse. Turner but that's something maybe dearly age his staff. I'm not saying you're gonna go out and find another mouse. Turner application that production with a couple of different players here and there and whether it ends up being some kind of combination of daniel thais and looking down the bench and seeing what happens off from that point I just wasn't sure that you know. Look indiana if you really wanna gordon hayward i think you had to force them to really make you pay for it and i don't say that do would you come down to it. The pacers were willing to give up that much and so that sure indicates how much that they really wanted. Gordon hayward i'm fine with the celtics student what they did now. You could be ultimately correct. They may regret not adding that kind of player. Especially we get into the playoffs split I agent it is staff are more than willing to let that ride. It see if they can't come up with that kind of a similar player through the course of use it a couple of different players and seeing what they can do at the trade deadline. Yeah they did get tristan thompson. Which is exactly what they need in on that front line. They've got the more athletic up perimeter shooting floor spacing kind of guy. You've got robert williams who is athletic shop locked they didn't have the physical rebounding tough guy. And that's what tristan thompson is brings championship experience to that team which i think will be a valuable addition and jeff teague is fine. He's not a starter anymore. But you're not asking him to basically kemba walker insurance down there in case kennedy's to take time off that knee injury so it wasn't. It wasn't a failure of an off season for boston. I just. I wonder how we look at this this summer. The summer this fall we look at a couple years
NBA free agency: Jayson Tatum agrees to extension with Boston Celtics and Gordon Hayward's big move to Charlotte Hornets
"Let me run the floor through a bunch of nba moves. That got made yesterday in case you didn't see this. There was a bunch of stuff and it begins with huge money for jason tatum and the celtics.

Danny Ainge's Celtics Conundrum
"The logical question though, and he got into this a lot with Bob and we got his thoughts. But obviously I want yours as well. You know, there are only so many options really that Danny Ainge has because of just the economic setup of this month. Stir, you know, it's very top-heavy salary cap wise young guys, you know, you can all right fine. So you don't bring back like an enes Kanter not a young guy but a cheap guy, you know, that's that's not going to give you all that much flexibility back. So it's really do you want to trade Marcus Smart, which I don't think anybody wants to do or do you want to move off of Gordon Hayward in some way shape or form now? He has the power which is often for that 34 + million dollars next year or he could opt out do what everyone thought was going to happen with Al Horford last year, which is re-signed him, you know more years lower aav average wage will value or you know option three is obviously you trade the guy. I don't think there's a scenario in which he just hops out and doesn't return I don't believe that anyway coming off the injury, maybe if he had had a bought a strong healthy season and great playoff run sure, but that wasn't the reality. So it's it's kind of a b and c with Gordon, but you know Brown who has just resigned isn't going anywhere. Tatum's going to get his contract cambuslang. In anywhere, so it's sort of adjusts, you know, your your salary cap position as a results to Hayward or you kind of bring back everybody and you just look to cherry-pick some depth off that balance like you're talking about right or or is there something I'm missing? Yeah. No, I mean and that's the other part of it is in you mentioned Caden pretty extensively Jaylen Brown has also shown he can be foundational second piece that goes he's turning twenty-four I think in like two weeks to have another player like that who and let's face it. The Celtics are pretty fortunate like the wage and they gave him he would Be worth a little more right now. She was going into like restricted free agency. So in addition to those guys being pieces you hope and assume they're both going to get them like camber is what can build which is, you know, an All-Star starters really good. Obviously your concerns about his knee. Hopefully that there's up but with Tatum and Jaylen there's still some there's still a level there. You think if you're if you're a self extension you hope so maybe that's what it takes to kind of get over the hump and you talk about Hayward. Obviously, I know fans are kind of disenchanted with them. He's had some just brutal block really like it's not like these injuries you suffering because he's like frail or like, you know, like just just brutal brutal luck. But off this year when he was healthy like last year when he was healthy. He was still not himself. It was clear this year when he was healthy looked really good. He was one of the best players and I think it was encouraging birth. You there aren't a lot of Gordon hayward's out there. We talked about like moving off of Gordon Hayward like he's back and playing like he's capable. That's a pretty big asset to have particularly. If you're putting them alongside our guys like Jason jail and who were still on their uptrend?
