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

"Guys who's putting a little bit more pressure on his teammates on the coaches, maybe even on the front office to, hey, let's keep this going. We're finally becoming the team we thought we could be. Let's do this. And why that is probably a little bit more important is that means that it's not, hey, I don't just want to see a Dennis shorter salary dump at the trade deadline, like get us some help, let's try to improve this team. And I think that is, that's what's the best players on the team should do. They should be pushing teams to continually make the team better. As long as you don't get involved in, go get this guy go get that guy because that's when it can go sideways. Just put that pressure on and go from there. So not a huge story. A lot of people are taking it as jaylen Brown wants out or jaylen Brown says must win or I'm leaving. It's not that's not the story but the story is, you know, hey, there's starting to be a little bit of pressure from Brown and the reality is he's halfway through his contract that he signed his new deal that he signed kicked in last year. This is year two of it. So after this year, he's only got two more years under contract left, and that's about when we start to hear guys if they're in the position to put a little pressure on their organization. Absolutely. So we'll see where things go from there. Let's finish things up, though, with another wing player. Jeremy grant, welcome back. Yeah. Welcome back. Jeremy, it sounds like he might even play tonight. Obviously a major name out there on the trade market. We'll see how that might factor in to maybe how many minutes he plays and that sort of thing. But he could be back. He's expected to be back this week and could even play in tonight's game for the Detroit Pistons, nice to see him back out on the floor. Yeah, and let me use this as a little bit of a soapbox moment. The pistons do not need to nor will they showcase Jeremy grant. They may get him out there to prove, hey, he's southeast past the thumb injuries ready to go. But they don't need to say, hey, Jeremy, grant, you're going to play 40 minutes a night, so teams can really see how good you are. It's not how this works. Teams know who Jeremy grant is. They feel really good about Jeremy grant's skill set. They just need to maybe there might be a couple of cake. Can we see him play a couple games? I just want to make sure that thumb doesn't look like it's a mess. With that, but showcasing players is that is when it is a player who was not in the rotation at all, all of a sudden is in the rotation and playing 25 minutes a night in games and it's like, where did this come from? That's a showcase. Teams don't have to showcase because I've heard some people saying the Celtics push Dennis Schroeder to play so they could showcase him with boy the first trade value..

"But regardless, we'll see. We'll see. People live show, we're saying whatever Matt's on, they lose. The Lakers lose. I don't know. Now Matt's gone and suddenly they win? Matt's never coming back at this point. Matt will Matt told us he will willingly sacrifice his own role on this show. If it means the Lakers win more games. So I like having mat on the show. So fingers crossed, hopefully, hopefully he doesn't go too far with that. Mooc Moore has said, given Mark Stein's report, oh, boy, here we go. The Lakers should try to go all in for Jeremy grant with the 2027 first, no matter what, should the pig be unprotected is the question, go all in no matter what. Yeah, so from what Stein is saying and by the way, I'm going to get into this, but then I'm going to talk a little bit of trade deadline. I'll do a little trade deadline PSA, public service announcement. But what Stein is saying is that the Lakers are definitely going after Jeremy grant. And pretty much the entire rest of the league though from what we've been hearing from multiple different people is that a lot of teams want Jeremy grant. There's a lot of and no surprise. He's an easy fit anywhere. You want a team that's going to play big? He can play there. One team is going to play small. He can play there. Play fast, he can play there, play slow, whatever. He can play in a lot of different systems. So a lot of teams want him, and he's on a pretty reasonable contract. So a lot of teams are very interested in Jeremy grant. It is a seller's market. There's not a lot of pieces out there on the market to go trade for. And so not surprisingly, Jeremy grant is in high demand. Now, what this means for the Lakers, though, is that they have to go all in order to try to get them. And for the Lakers right now all in equals Taylor Horton Tucker, Kendrick nun in the 2027 first. That's all you have to offer. Now, what mook Morris is saying is that you can add some protections to that. Let's say it's a lottery protected, 2027 pick. And then if it's in the lottery, then the Lakers get to keep their pick. That obviously is going to have less value to the pacers than say an unprotected pick, where the pit could be number one overall. And they still get it. So maybe there's some negotiating wiggle room there, but still a 2027 first round pick probably doesn't that and the pieces the Lakers have. I'm not sure that's enough to get the job done for Jeremy grant. Not with so many teams after him. If it does, great, but I would have to think that making that pick unprotected is almost going to be a must just to be in the.

"What's the probability of Jeremy grant getting moved by the trade deadline now that miles Turner probably isn't a strong of an asset? Yeah, this is going to be one where you have to have a real good way to back door the negotiations because you want to have a sense of, hey, after next year, meaning the 22 23 season are you going to resign here? Can we get you to do an extension this off season? What does that look like? By all accounts, Jeremy grant wants paid, and Jeremy grant also wants to be somewhere where he's not the third fourth guy in the pecking order like he was in Denver. He wants to be a big featured player. That starts to take the destinations and you can really start to look around and say, I will take this team off the list because they can't do this. Take this team off the list take this team off the list. And then you're left with a much shorter list because I don't know how many teams SR review Jeremy grant as our number two on a title team. I think a lot of teams if you're our number three, you're a number four. Anything below that, yeah, we're probably really, really good. So that's where I think the challenge comes in for Jeremy grant is so you have to be really able to back channel that to say, all right, we what do we think in on this as far as the contract goes next one roll? Is he going to be happy here? Those kind of things, because otherwise, this is one where you could make this trade, then he's not happy, and then you deal with another year of unhappy and then he's gone. And that becomes a whole mass messing. And I'm not, I don't mean this as any criticism of Jeremy grant. I think his idea is fine. I think it's a little misplaced. I don't think he's quite that level of player..

"Would need something, they wouldn't do it unless they're gonna get back something that really addresses one of their needs. I don't think that Kobe white does. I mean, a pic would help. But what do you think of? Yeah, I was thinking it from that perspective. Why would Memphis do that? Right. That's an interesting question. Yeah. But okay, but Joe, do you think that what's the biggest weakness for the polls right now they need to shore up defensive center or defensive end? Definitely our size. And I think most of us like to play that 5 outwardly, and if we get a four that doesn't mind being in the post plants with defense and kind of having that presence, it might assure him up to get a couple more free shots and that worked so hard to stretch the offense. We need yeah. They definitely need a little bit more depth depth in the big man. How could they get Jeremy grant? That'd be a good question. Well, they were talking about him or Harrison Barnes, and then they would package, you know, gosh, what was that package then for the bulls? Jones, who would you like better for them? Out of those two guys. Honestly, I don't have a problem with either. I just don't think they add up to what we need all the way. It would just be quick fixes, which again, I know Kobe might have some value and I love the story too, but I think we got some steam and we need to go full steam ahead before we blow this up and just know what we're doing this year. I hear you. Yeah, we talk about this last time, I think, right. You thought that Jeremy grant would be the better fit, right? Yeah, I think Jeremy grant would be a great fit there. I mean, he brings that defensive versatility that you want for that team. And that team, you know, I mean, they're great on offense. They have some great defensive players, but they're not really a great defensive team right now. Their defense doesn't match up to their offense. And they need some depth as well, but they're scary. Like no team wants to play them. I'll tell you that Jones in the playoffs, no team wants to play them. Right. But that said, the assets are not like, I don't know how many assets they might have, the package they could get something really great back. Especially with the Memphis because they're not going to do anything to mess up chemistry unless it's something that really makes sense for them. Yeah. That's just a pipe dream of mine. But the reason I don't think Jeremy grant's coming is we have a lot of guys around that height that range, and we might need someone a little bit more solidified out of 6 ten and even if Clark's not, he plays big. Like we need someone that can play big above the room. It's coming back. It was a couple months last time I checked it was supposed to be out for season, but I heard there's some new updates or something, but I haven't checked recently. I feel like he'll be out for a while. Yeah, I can check that while we're talking. But I don't know how much you'd expect from him at this point. We're missing all the time and having to he was on its way toward building to something, but we hadn't seen it yet. So if the best didn't believe in him, it could make sense for them, right? Oh, yeah. There could be some value, by the way, on that end, as far as from trade..

"So would you take a flyer on Kevin Porter if he got released or traded? I would. I mean, sometimes the Lakers have taken on these guys who have had interesting pass. And sometimes it's worked out. We go way back in the day. You remember Isaiah JR writer? Yes. Remember that? Yeah, the Lakers brought him in. Dennis Rodman was a Laker at one point. Sometimes the Lakers take chance on these guys and sometimes it works. I mean, Dion waiters played some decent minutes for the Lakers. And you know, waiters island and all that kind of stuff. JR Smith came in. You've had some guys that have had some measure of success. Dwight, Howard, Dwight, Howard was seen as kind of a malcontent before he came to the Lake or somebody who would never accept being a role player. And he's been great at doing just that, just doing what the team needs him to do. So you never know, but I'd still be a little hesitant. I mean, it's kind of iffy because this is now the second situation where this because that's why he got traded from Cleveland. Yes, that's true. Yeah. So I mean, I liked K PJ coming out of the draft. So I'm a little biased here, but I think that would be fun to have the guy that played for USC back with the Lakers. But that's just good for you. But back to the question originally, yes, Christian wood was somehow available. I don't see why he would be. But if he was somehow available in the Lakers have a deal for him, assuming that the Jeremy grant trade that everyone and their mom is talking about doesn't go through, if you told me, well, we'll take THT from you guys and we'll give you Christian wood. I would say yes. If it was Christian wood or Jeremy grant, you're taking agreed. Can you imagine a LeBron, Stanley Johnson, Jeremy grant, and throw in two players of your choice there? That'd be fun lineup. That would be fun. Trevor ariza someone else? My thinking, I've got to come in here. My thinking with bronn and AD small ball is for a bigger trade coming that may involve us getting Jeremy grant and THT going up. Isn't any trade the Lakers do? Yes. He would have to be. You know, it's a small one. We have not done the master lock in the night. We need to do that before we call it a night here. And we've already gone way over time talking about team full of clone Lebrons and things like that. It sucks. And ducks. So let's talk about the master lock of the night. Let's get into it. What was the one thing that you would put in Chris, the masterpiece masters finishing hold? Chat, let us know your thoughts coming in from YouTube from Facebook from Twitter. What are you putting in the master lock tonight?.

"You're hoping that he could return some of that value and continue to find a way to start knocking out threes again with being likely the third or fourth option on any given night. So yeah, I think you have to make that move. That tends to be what happens with players, right? When we see a player come into a team where they are, they go from being the first option on say a bad team, and they go to become the say third or fourth option or whatever it is on the team that at least has championship aspirations. I don't hesitate to call the Lakers a good team because we haven't seen that this season. But if you have a guy like Jeremy grant, who goes from being the first option to being the third option, maybe the fourth option, depending on what the lineup is, right? What usually see happen is you see the usage go down, the volume go down, so the number of tips go down, but the percentage will go up because the quality of looks is going to increase. They're going to be more selective with their shots, whereas on the team where they're the number one option, they're being asked to take a lot of bailout shots. Hey, shot clock's winding down. Well, you're our guy. So here's the ball. Go shoot it. Those are percentage killers. So you don't get as many of those. And so you see the efficiency come up. I think that's what we would see out of Jeremy grant. If the Lakers traded for him and you're expecting him to be a 20 point per game scorer, you'd probably be disappointed. But 15 ish points with good defense and helping you out on the glass and doing all those things the Lakers need. I think he could very easily give you that. Yeah, and again, going back to that year in OKC, the average 5 rebounds a game. And that's us a fourth option. I'm taking that along with again, the good three point shooting in solid to good perimeter defense. And then, oh boy, I mean, you could put him in a lineup with a him and liable LeBron and AD because I'm so sweet. That AD, the Lakers played as to play 80 at the 5. And I mean, that's what they want to do. And now I've said in other breakdowns, it baby gets dragged out to the perimeter. Now you have guys like whether if you do get Jeremy grant LeBron and other guys that they have that can rebound and not give up several offensive rebounds on one possession. Yes. Yes. I've got to come here Westbrook has been doing this this whole career. You haven't been paying attention, it's different when you're watching it every single night..

"Jumping into a game? I mean, does it really do we really just say the bucks are good and the pistons are bad? Like one 17 to 89 bucks. Still missing starters box. But yeah, they still missing starters, but the pistons are really bad. Jeremy grant kind of bounces back with 21 points, but Kate Cunningham, two for 14 from the field, including zero for 9. Yikes. That's not great. Still very early, and that's not reason to suddenly beat only two guys in double figures for the pistons in the game. The worst out of all 8 for 47 for three, if you take out Jeremy grant and Killian Hayes, who combine to go 6 for 12, they were two for 35. That's impressive. That's hard to do. That's yeah, Trey lyles was two for 8, Frank Jackson was over 5 Cunningham. We already said over 9 city bay, two zero for four, only two for 13 from the field overall yeah. Just about as bad a game as the pistons could play in the box did enough to win behind Yanis. And kind of munchkin type lineup. So his brother's not small because he's kind of bulky, but the NASA is starting at the 5 right now for Milwaukee. We'll see because there's no real clarity on holiday or Lopez. We now know Chris Middleton's going to fail for ten days. So at least, and we'll see from there. Let me ask you this. The pistons minus Jeremy grant or Killian Hayes, shooting from three in a three point shooting competition against blindfolded Steph Curry, who are you taking? Oh, that's a good question. I assume. He gets up and it's just muscle memory or the pistons, no blindfolds, just shooting. So like last night's pistons, staff takes 35, three pointers, staff. A hundred be crazy. I was thinking the same thing. Yeah, it probably. Now I'm caught on. That's a good question because now I'm wondering how it makes..

"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point. Two five percent preferred rewards member which you put toward your most essential deck addition a bird feeder of yours at bank of america dot com slash more rewarding copyright two thousand twenty one bank of america corporation support for this podcast comes from invent together according to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse. The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.

He played really well off to coca shed a beautiful dunk on the baseline. This is what they want him to be. They want him to be a cutter playing with better players for the first time in his career.

Celtics Trade Rumors: Nikola Vucevic

"Do have interesting trade rumors. We didn't want to wait till after to get to them and they involve a bunch of big names that we've been kicking around on the thread on the on the live streams all of this time some really big fish out there. The Celtics are supposedly in on so we'll go Name by name. But again, this is Shams very plugged in the Athletic Club throwing out vucevic throwing out Jeremy Grant throwing out Harrison Barnes. These are all enticing names and honestly those three plus there and Gordon are probably the big fish house on the market Garden Of course dealing with the sprained ankle. So teams are wait and see there but those are the big names out there. We've been hearing them all the time. I'm going to start with Bobby's boy boo Savages. Part of that report was that it's going to be a massive Hall that we've been debating on all day Bobby what that actually entails but first this you turned on this guy meaning turned back towards this guy as Gore guy tell us why tell us what you think what you'd be willing to give up here for the Celtics to get it done. So I was never the biggest fan him and the sticks were previously invested in him during that Kemba Walker offseason. They were hot on him cuz they had the max cap space after Kyrie and Mortadella could have filled him down the middle. So there's a connection there. Obviously Kemba came along and grab that bone. Now, you have the chance to have four All-Stars on the team of chemicals affect them. They hated it. Yeah, and I still don't love it now, but I think context is everything you don't have cap space forever now wage only so many ways you can improve in the future. So why not grab the best player available? And I think out of all the options were going to talk about today. This guy's an All-Star. He pushes 30 points a game on many birth. It's eye dominant. Rebounder. Probably one of the best rebounders in basketball this year defense. We'll see I think it's all situational but he's kind of a disaster down there in Orlando defensive or a that could change in Boston and the three-point shot by zone is the best 3-point shooter above the break and basketball this year. So that's perfect in Boston pick-and-pop off and he'd get open shots above the are called a there he can post up he's seven feet. I know people will love that. He's a real big so he just give them a bunch of different options and outlets for offense and size that they don't have right now and this is what I love about and to John if they can find a way to clear types in a potential deal here clear Thompson in a game here and you're left with Rob and bukovic. See the dream. That's the dream. So look at it this way though. If you're the other team coming back, your don't want to take on Thompson or Thai so, you know, Rob is automatic berth. Certainly, if you're going to go big, you know to go get somebody else's big. I don't see any world in which you make a trade really any trade at this point in Rob Williams is still a Celtic. So anybody at home saying do do it do it I think has to get used to kind of giving up on their Binky which is Rob Williams, which is going to be hard for a lot of Celtics fans to be able to live with that.

"Know for sure till Jeremy Grant is asked about this. At his introductory press conference, But the reports are that Jeremy Grant wanted and expanded offensive role. Which the Nuggets clearly could not give him with Nicole Yokich and Jamal Murray. And probably Michael Porter Jr. And some Will Barton and and and So there's no doubt he would have Maura opportunities to score with Detroit. Then with Denver. And I could be petty. Could be petty and bring up Game three against the Clippers, where he shot five of 14 or Game one against the Lakers, where he was three for 11. Or how about Game six against the Lakers. Where he was seven of 18. But I'm not that kind of guy. It would be unbecoming of me to bring that up as why would I even bring it up? To say he doesn't deserve and expanded offensive role. I didn't say that. Nor would I As I appreciate what Jeremy granted for the Denver Nuggets. But It's a logical conclusion that you come to And I don't even look at him like he's being selfish. Here. You know the what about sacrificing for the good of winning? You have to understand the psychology of these players, They believe they can make the difference. So Jeremy Grand I think it's Kind of unfair to label him as selfish. Because He believes that if he were to get an expanded offensive role He would be able to be a bigger reason why the team he plays for wins. Is it misguided of him? You think that Is it semi delusional? That's not for me to decide. Yes. Right? He completely. Completely wrecked the Nuggets. Just put him in a really difficult position. And and I thought Tim Connolly recovered as well as he could have. Getting Jermichael Green brings back Paul Millsap on a contract where With the money they're giving him makes him a very tradable asset. Tim Connelly did as well as you could ask him to do given The circumstances. Jeremy Grant, leaving Completely changes things. For the Denver Nuggets. Completely. Cause you look at a Western conference. Where the Lakers have added mantra is Harrell and Marc Gasol. Ah, you the Clippers have added surge Ibaka. The Portland Trail Blazers have brought in Robert Covington and brought back and his canter. We know was a little bit of a thorn in the side of the Nuggets couple years ago. You could make an argument. That in the span of 24 hours Not even 24 hours. However, long free agency was open. Eight hours, six hours. The Nuggets went from, Okay. How do they Get past the Lakers to are they even the best team in their division anymore? It is a legitimate question to ask with the moves that the Blazers have made and the fact that they, by all accounts will be healthy going into this year. Now I would still tend To go with the Nuggets over the Blazers. But it's a legitimate question and I don't I don't take a fence or get upset at the national media asking that question. Cause it's a legitimate question. That's the impact of losing Jeremy Grant. And to add to it. And look, I'm not going to play revisionist history here. For what Tori Craig did. For the Nuggets. He was very good. But he is a one way player. In a week where he It's increasingly important to be able to play on both ends of the floor. Tory Craig Really can't Not consistently So I'm not going to see here and play revisionist history and say, Oh, well, they should've kept Ori Craig because Maybe with the moves. That were made and stuff. Would you want Tori Craig or Isaiah Hartnell Stein? You don't know the family financials. Of it and You know, they only had so many of Full contracts to give hartal Stein and The other dude that they signed is that's going to sound. The end of the bench is going to be moving up and down between Did not gets in the D League. And now you have lost Jeremy Grant and Tory Craig. And my question to you is Who guards Kawai. Regards LeBron No, I'm not insinuating that either one of those guys Tory Craig or Jeremy Grant stopped LeBron or quiet. Closer to stopping quiet than stopping LeBron. But I'm just saying, I'm just asking Very simple question Who guards him? Who guards Kwai Leonard. Gary Harris. Will Barton Michael Porter Jr. I mean, This season was always going to be about the development, further development of Michael Porter Jr and the development of global Right. It was going to come down to that. But it was going to come down to that. With the assumption that Jeremy Grant would still be here. Now it's even more vital. That Michael Porter Jr. Get close to the all MBA level. That the Nuggets seemed to think he can reach and it's even more vital that Bull Bull carves out a niche with this team. And that Michael Malone doesn't treat global like he did. Michael Porter Jr..

She oversees all of the media channels, hirings and staffing for all of Washington footballs. Media outlets and for Julie makes her the highest ranking female official inside the organization. They had a very tumultuous offseason, obviously, including the report from the Washington Post about sexism, misogyny and maybe perhaps also sexual assault within that organization, at least sexual harassment. And so we'll talk to Julie Donaldson about trying to clean that up. It also about a Washington football culture that's hoping to change in Iran. Rivera will do that coming up in 20 minutes from now.

So we have been blessed with many great guest today. Great job by Mariah's lock them all in so excited about all of them, starting with Julie Donaldson coming up in 20 minutes. Last night, the Nuggets get a Game three victory. Jamal Murray was out of his mind. Yet again. He's been just phenomenal and this postseason and between him and the Joker, the Nuggets had enough to withstand a 19 to run by the Lakers. And win game number three, and Jamal Murray is planted himself right the conversation of best scorers in all of the N B. A. But I also thought last night was a key was getting Jeremy Grant going by the Nuggets that his contributions last night were huge. You know that Murray's going to give you good scoring almost every night. Basically every night. You know, Yokich is going to bring it every single night and so who is going to be the X factor for the Nuggets to help supplement those two guys last night was Jeremy great, who's just very active both offensively defensively, remarkably efficient as well in his scoring. Scored over 25 points and and also did it on just 11 shots so very good night for Jeremy Grant 26 points, which is a career high for the playoffs. 64% shooting and helped lead the Nuggets to a 21. Serious right now, the Game three victory. This weekend is really interesting in college football. It's interesting because we have the SEC beginning play. And so all of the big storyline surrounded the SEC lane. Kiffin is now a told this You have the pirate at Mississippi State. You have Alabama coming off a quote unquote down season and now having to restart its quarterback shuffle without to a tongue of my lower Now with Mack Jones is gonna be the starter. LF you coming off that incredible run to the national championship, maybe a step forward for Tennessee. Florida should be very good as well in the East. What is Georgia look like? Since they've been knocking on the door for so long? A lot of interesting stuff cooking. In the SEC and it all starts coming up this weekend, so that's going to be very interesting to watch and remember, there's no garbage nonconference games that the SEC starts off with. We're getting right into conference season with the SEC this weekend. So we've got Florida all Miss Florida's ranked number five of the country. You've got Kentucky Auburn to top 25 teams, the SEC. Mississippi State. L S u What is the Bulldogs offense look like? With an air raid flare against the defending national champs. Georgia. Arkansas. Bama, Missouri, Vandy, Texas A and M These all involve ranked teams. Tennessee, South Carolina. This has got a lot of action of the SEC, so that's interesting. It. Also interesting is that Notre Dame's game against Wake Forest has been postponed. Too many positive tests. And I find this interesting because One thing that basketball Have allowed us to do. From a sports damn point. Is forget about Corona virus. Since basketball and hockey of God inside there, bubbles We haven't had barely a blip about a positive test, let alone multiple on one team, let alone an outbreak, let alone games being postponed. Because of the effectiveness of the bubble. We take it for granted. Last night, scheduled Game three Western Conference finals and we all know that game was going to be played. And we all know that Moving forward like let's just say tonight. Celtics and Heat 8 30 Eastern time. Game four. It's going to be played. And just moving forward. We take it for granted, like the Stanley Cup final will play every game we will see the end of the road. I think baseball has gotten its act together as well after all, of those crazy episodes of the Marlins of the Cardinals of the bets They've been straight shot. They'll go inside their quote unquote bubbles the postseason and my guess is we can take for granted that we will see a game four of the World Series on the date that it's set to be How football's not.

We talked about this in the pre game a little bit just that he was one for six from three B a huge boost. Remember, He's in Denver, in part because Tim Conley had a great relationship with his father, Harvey, and they had covered in him. P. J for a long time. It was a good decision, but I loved his father, one of the favorite players I ever coached. He was a pro. He came worked hard every night. He's just a delightful man, Jeremy the same Jeremy's getting play. We kind of Don't talk about it all we talk about good. Hey, we're not being here. All these other players. Will Barton's 58 starts for Denver. He was averaging 15 game six boards, almost forces. That's why Jeremy grants in him. He's done a really good job. Denver's missing one of their key players. Jeremy Grain has had to guard Donovan Mitchell. Ally. Letter Paul George LeBron James. How about that gauntlet here in the postseason? Speaking of James, he gets it in Anthony Davis. All 10 starters still on the floor passed Danny Green on the right this time off the Florida knocked away by Millsap got it back to Casey back to Green Left Corner three. No. And Millsap has the Denver rebound. Nuggets with a 10 7 lead. 6 34 to go first quarter will try a three circles the rim pops out. Danny Green rebounds James into the front court to our left accelerating on Grant, who takes a tumble block. Paul by Josh Tim in the official as Grant, still on his back, took that contact but didn't get to call in his favor. Well, I don't know why. I just looked at the replay. If that's not a charge, Doris is making sure that he's all right. I'm not sure he is. Take a look at this replay. Do I agree with you down on Reggie Miller's place? Oh, wow. Monitor. I thought it was square in the chest was perpendicular to like everything. I thought it was a charge agreed. Then it wasn't happy. With all the calls happen in the second quarter in Game one inbound Anthony Davis over Jeremy Grant on the fate of Miss Gary Harris has it. He's sprinting into the front court on the far left side hits the trailing Yokich down the lane, who puts it in Denver with a five point lead. Anthony Davis hasn't crossed half court yet. So opportunity for Denver in transition. 12 7 Nuggets under six minutes to go first quarter James from the right, Jeremy Grant bumped him hit him. That'll be number two on Grant, and that's the second team foul against Denver side in L. A. And we'll have our first substitution is Jeremy Grant will head to the bench with two fouls was something I could never get used to coaching against LeBron James, where your player got the file and also injured. From getting bumped by LeBron. It's like I mean, the only thing it ever reminded me of was watching Jimmy Ground play when he was in his prime. The guys who tried to tackle him got hurt. Tory Craig is in and he's defending LeBron James. I think they called insult to injury. Here's James Baseline right five to shoot double passes on top KCP for three. It's a miss long rebound. James has its head of steam to the lane had nothing at the rim gets rid of it on top..

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray lead improved energetic effort to beat Clippers in Game 2

"Yesterday the nuggets lead. wire-to-wire top the clippers tie the series at one game apiece a little surprising sure I mean they got off to a huge lead and held onto the victory lead biggest takeaway from the nuggets game two victory over lic. So many positives take of this from Denver they jump. The clippers gave him the off punch in the mouth from the start, which is to say it was led by their styles, Jamal and nickel Yokich. They got lots of contributions from other guys as well. MILLSAP I thought was good in this game. Gary. Harris Marco Porter Jr. coming off the bench gays in the middle of a lift as well and even rant. Jeremy Grant was their defense I thought was exceptional. There was a several times where the clippers were in the pint and there was two or three Denver Nuggets, contesting shot blocking shots, and really making the clippers feel them in the paint, which is important. But the biggest takeaway for me is we knew the clippers we're GONNA come back. This is a twenty point late in the first half and it. was like in the NBA that never lost especially in the playoffs. The biggest question for me would the nuggets be able to hold onto this game and win it, and there was a crucial moment that minutes ago in the fourth quarter I think it was Po Georgia to three brought to a five point game and that was the sliding doors moment of the game. What would the nuggets through from? And began to our and just show that that first quarter net hop surge was nothing more than like. All right. We don't get swept all would they actually be able to maintain what they've played up to for that point and they did they came out and hit three threes after that and basically stretch the game out and Kinda sealed it from there. You know like it was sort of sent the message that the clippers like we're. Not going away and and again, it wasn't just Murray and Yokich was other guy is contributing and so to me it did sort of say, Oh, I, picked I, think the clippers to win this five. But after watching that performance in the way that they won that wire to wire, I'm a little more now convinced that the the the nuggets can make this series and an an a longer series I still think clip is ultimately win it. But if it goes six or seven, now, I wouldn't be surprised because I just thought that the Denver Nuggets after Guy Wander the first quarter they thought it off well, and then they just Kinda sunk from there and Michael Malone said we need to have better energy for the entire game and they absolutely did last night. So very impressive performance from everyone yokich again was great and so is Mary but really important that those other. Guys contribute and make this more than just a sort of a like a like a run in that first quarter just to get just to get system, they actually sustain that the entire game. So that's what I thought was most important for the nuggets at the something there that they can build on going forward in this

Clippers vs. Nuggets: How the teams match up for playoff series

"It's the clippers nuggets this one tips today Thursday at nine PM Eastern. interrupters. Ton of Christ, says, this is weird because that is my sister. Okay well. I. Now, it's good. Good good It's too weird. All right. The clippers took two out of three regular season Games including one twenty, four, one eleven victory in the bubble. So let's get to the keys to this series clippers nuggets, and then we'll make our predictions task whether you're watching. Well, Jamal Murray is going to be the number one objective for the clippers defensively. They're just going to be a Angel Momma and I think. This is GonNa be one series where quiet Leonard has to guard Jamaa. I think whoever's playing point guard for them is going to be too little to guard Jamal Murray whether it's beverly or Landry Shamet and I think Paul George is too big. So it's just GONNA work out. That Leonard is going to be on Jamal primarily that's going to be as matchup like it has been the last two times they played during the regular season. So that's GonNa be exciting, just watching Leonard. Have to exert a lot of energy expend energy. You know it's not just your plan pick and roll Shimomura he's going to give up the ball. He's GonNa frigging run around off ball and he's going to be dancing and I think. We know that guys are going to help out. With those guys I just mentioned and if zoo this is going to be a really big really big series for him. We saw what happened in in Utah if Rudy Gobert comes up and plays Jamal Murray. The numbers change so that's going to be there huge huge vote because this is going to be so hard for me to go and come after what he just did. Now he's going to be watching Kawai. Leonard and I think we can sort of lock in on this end of the floor because I think this is Paul. George series to take over on the other end and I think it's good Paul George. He's he feels like he had a nice fresh manscaping grooming fact that the fact that this is a new series he should feel. A little rejuvenated. Also. Because he's not going to have a tough assignment I think going up on the other end. I think Jeremy Grants going to be guarding quiet he has all year. Paul George at millsaps Tori Craig's little too small former. Michael. Porter. I don't know about that. I saw Paul George should have. The Freedom and the ability just because the defender he's going to have to go offensively and. Can expend all that energy. So I think that's what's going to happen. We're GONNA have we're going to get Jamal come back to Earth a little bit because this is the clippers defense here. Yeah

Your palatial room hits both free throws. That was a fun game to watch and 5 to 2 teams they lost. Could've been victories. A great Boston lost 13 Clippers in overtime, 45 39.

This is the first is that a function of we're down to these last three days, and everybody just about knows their playoff. I think so. Maybe a look ahead. Coach Malone said. 37 days that the Nuggets have been here. Yes, they got here first. No one's used to that. I mean, this is almost like a baseball types. Come in. Hang out for three. Not three nights normally get one or two nights, Max. 37 nights in the bubble for Denver, please free throws are split by Millsap. Here's George driving and sending it out to Leonard.

That's practically straight up and down the hall in Doc Rivers. Thank you very much inside reporter Got it ripped away. Leonard was going for the late foul from the up. Official unlettered. Courtney Kirkland blew the whistle there, Luke say thanks very much. Might have been an eye roll second, followed by letter that they are over the limit on so Michael Porter Jr. Going to the free throw line is mentioned earlier case You missed it. He's a rookie, but he did not play his first year. They had that scary back injury in college just games into his collegiate career in Missouri, as he misses the first of two and because of that his Grab stock drops, and Denver, which had lost the game right at the end of the regular suits and ended up with last lottery pick, took 14 and 23.8 point nine boards. 7.5 points.
