"It is time to get with a sectors Joe bean earns one more shot to keep the process alive and a game seven that will have endless ramifications for both sides. And then the warriors they need to win one two without the best player in the world to keep their three Pete Holmes alive. But we'll explain all the pressure is actually on the other side. And then the Lakers run out of advocate is here to figure out who's to blame. And who's the right person to figure all this out? All that and more on a Friday from New York when they get up and thank you so much for starting your day with us Ryan russillo with back and as promised what would here. I know that by the time we finish this morning. You will have solved the problem that the Lakers have that's our goal. That's quest. Easily two hours. It's done. I just want to sit and watch. I need that much time. We'll have that done for you in twenty minutes. But let's start with this game of the night. Sixers raptors Joel Embiid funny moment before the game and be trying to give a little shake hands of Cousy Aqaba. There's no way. You're always sick when you don't play. Well, so I'm not sure how you're going to be feeling tonight. Let's see second quarter Sixers up ten Jimmy Butler. And Ben Simmons throw and again for the monster. Dante says give me one Philadelphia up twelve early now to ten point game and watch Jimmy Butler. No Jimmy butlers. Yes. All balanced, plus the Powell Sixers Sixers thirteen after the foul shot hundred twenty seconds ago. The lead is eleven Butler driving and is good now. Keep an eye on Butler. Here is going back in the other direction. Eight seconds left in the half seven seconds counting down. Poke check steel Kuwait Leonard three to one feeds the buzzer nine first half field goals for Jimmy Butler. Most in any happened is playoff career in the Sixers are up fifteen in the third quarter. It would be NB finding rhythm. The lead is eleven Butler and bead little jumper over Marcus, all plus the foul and be feeling and feeling well on this night at home, take another look curate, Leonard going to the basket look at Joel Embiid playing defense means at the ramp not having any of that. And then more defense. Sixers sixteen points swatted again by 'em being and look at the speed Ben Simmons out in front of the this is the process right in what little microcosm and being with the black on one end Simmons the laying on the other. Now, they're feeling good teams was the lead. Taiwan got in the third and beans got back in the repertoire as well. His plus minus was plus forty last night seventeen points twelve there will be a game seven in Toronto on Sunday. Then if you play that you wanna come back the next game and play by the you know of dental all know, we felt like we met a lot of mistakes and on tonight. They had to be corrected gotta come in. And you know, fight. You know, our backs was on the line tonight. I feel like our back you still and he's on the line. So he's all about defense, man. If we play defense played tonight of in game two and three we feel we can beat anybody. So here's what we had the Sixers clamping down defensively, particularly in transition last night. Toronto scoring a series low eleven fast-break points. That's eleven fewer than their average games one through five. So basically shut that down by fifty percents over solo. I turn to you. And I want to use the word confounding sometimes to describe the Sixers sometimes they look so good. And you wonder why is it that same collection of players occasionally, look so bad?.
NBA Trade Deadline Roundup: All the action you need to know
"Now, it was a little bit quiet as well in the I would say the the two hour range before the NBA trade deadline. I was procrastinating finishing my column, of course, what else is new. And so I was looking at Twitter and refreshing and try to figure out whether or not any moves had been made. And it was eerie. It was really eerie at that point. But there was a flurry of activity right before the deadline. So in that final hour Nico mirror attached to the bucks. So they bolster their three point shooting Marcus, Saul who was very close to landing in Charlotte. Instead ends up with Toronto. If you missed my conversation with Greg Brady some morning show host on the fan five ninety. Well, we talked to him. Let me just let me just summarize my conversation with Craig Brady I asked him so with the change at head coach. And and of course, bringing in Kuwait Leonard in the off season Marta rose, and is gone now Yoenis Vallon Schuman's valid out Marcus all is in. How much has changed with the culture? This is very earnest question. Right. How much has changed with the culture of the raptors the season his response. Well, LeBron has gone. So a lot has changed. Okay. So maybe maybe the raptors are overcompensate, and maybe they're not. But I think if you look big picture Eastern Conference while we're talking about it. The fact that it's the Sixers who make the move for Tobias Harris. It's Mark assaulted the raptors at its Nico mirror attached to the bucks. These three moves are all for the here. And now they're for the present there about winning that conference. Now, I know the Celtics didn't make a move. Their lineup is got a lotta pieces that they're still trying to make sure they can get all on the same page, but no glaring weaknesses in the case of the Celtics. So you got those four teams, but the three that make the moves are about winning now. Whereas in the Western Conference monitor move here and there nothing super serious. Most of the teams as the dust settles on this trade deadline. Most of the teams. Are about positioning themselves for the future whether through shedding cap space, no shedding shedding cap commitments and making cap space. Aiming is what happens when you talk to fasten a Friday morning and get excited and also shedding, unwanted or bad contracts. So that's the idea for most of the teams in the NBA. And I mentioned this stat. I got it for Matt Moore NBA insider for the action network who joined us on our last show the possibility is there for forty percent of the NBA to be in free agency in a few months forty percent. And we're talking about massive names now. Kevin Durant could be part of that conversation, or he could not Klay Thompson could be part of that conversation or he could not. Jimmy, Butler, probably going to be part of that conversation. So there there's some ebbs and flows there as well. Where you don't exactly know, which guys will sign contracts to stay where they are in which guys will actually hit free agency. But generally, the big names wanna be wooed. They want wanna be booed. And so there's a lot of potential for the balance of power to shift in the off season at it. I think it's pretty obvious. When you look at the NBA in his trade deadline that most of the moves that were made were not about. Now, they're about down the road. A handful of these teams in the east because the east is I don't want to say, it's a wide open. But there are a few teams there that you feel like it wouldn't be a huge surprise if they ended up winning the conference and getting to the NBA finals. Everybody gets a trophy. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio. You know, what that actually makes me think of the whole winning and losing the trade deadline. So you in the east or all? Where for the most part the rest of you want wall. So coming up, we're going to talk a little more about the night in the NBA. Because even though the Lakers did not get Anthony Davis. And I think you look back now, and you realize the pelicans were screwing with them. They weren't actually interested in making a deal with the Lakers. They just wanted to see how much they could get it. As it turns out, even with the extra picks and five bodies, they weren't going to make that deal. They didn't want to make that deal. What they wanted to see is how much the Lakers were willing to offer. And now how can we spin that forward into a potential offer for the Lakers in the off season? But also, how can we use that to get packages from say the Celtics or if he was serious about the buck side of the clippers. So we're talking about really just using that desire that desire to bring an Anthony Davis against them. The pelicans will play Davis the rest of the way. So at least we have that question answered. But what about the Lakers the damage has been done? I get that the moves were made. But the fact that LeBron and Magic Johnson LeBron's agent were willing to literally slice and dice the locker room and ship half of his teammates out. That's not something that you get over quickly. It's not. And so the deadline may be passed. But the drama remains. Although a buzzer beater, sometimes it can help make

"Averaging career highs at right. At. Fourteen eleven and two blocks. Just last season whoa John how it, came together the marketplace was really devoid of salary cap space. For a team to give Capella an offer sheet he. Would have needed to take back to Houston match and so the deal that they agreed to today is largely the deal that. Houston was offering at the start of, free agency but for cappella twenty four years old he'll be able to get back into free agency again before he's thirty years old. And it's a risk for a player like him At a young. Age to sign a four million dollar, qualifying offer to become an restricted next year he could get injured a lot of things can happen so ninety million dollars for him And a chance, to get back into, free agency while he's soldier twenty fourteen first round pick a key piece of Houston's rise in the Western Conference shooting a league. Best sixty five percent. From the field Brian Windhorst on. Spain and fits that this contract Is a win for. The rockets I mean it's difficult to, predict how something's gonna go for five years we can have all these formation on the world without crystal ball we're, not gonna know how our five year contract looks We get a couple of years into it. But considering the circumstances now it's sixty million guaranteed per year which. Sounds like a lot of money but it was probably You think about a. Couple of years ago there were center, is getting sixty million dollars a year, who are nowhere near Markets so, getting Capella, at that number is a win for the. Rockets I, still think they're gonna they're going to be short defensively you know? Yesterday I talked to James harden about. This I, said what do you, think, is how do, you view, the off season and he was generally positive. About it they said we've got, to re-signed Clint and, we've got you know we're gonna have to play a lot better defensive teams is here, and I I agree with that but I will say that Daryl Morey is a guy who over the years has proven what his. Team looks like at the start of the season looks like at the end of the season is often very different different and so. I expect him to still be very aggressive, to try to get. Some more defenders at the USA basketball minicamp raptors guard Kyle. Lowry was repeatedly asked about damore Rosen straight to the Spurs the two are considered close. Friends on and off the court so you, would have figured he would have said something whether it was about as former Teammate or new one in Kuwait Leonard instead you got this USA basketball Tell us about what I came out here for To have a fun to be around Fellas That's Very.

Non stop about to show nice guy well the crazy. With some of his. Takes a very very very, nice guy from, what I know just the extent of taking his phone call. And. Whatnot on my weekend show, on CBS sports. Radio all right let's get into the old big three. And the new big three, the big three for the Toronto Raptors and that big three is putting air quotation marks because. It's not a true authentic big three Dwayne Casey the former coach Kyle. Lowry star player Dhamar derozen former player they were. Team they were a group that had some regular season. Success no question in Toronto A lot of regular season success but they're. Kryptonite in the postseason, every year like everyone else in the Eastern Conference was King James so this year. We, were told by the. People in Toronto this is our. Year King James who. They're gonna, find, a way they're, the one seed King James, doesn't stand a chance and what happened. Raptors, and the Cavs met up in the postseason and, guess, who came out victorious in a clean. Sweep a gentleman sweep clean sweep that was LeBron James so we wanted to see how the, raptors. Were going. To change things up how, they were going to spice, things up, in the off season and they got rid of Dwayne Casey replace them with Nick nurse who was on his staff even, though, Dwayne, Casey, one, coach of the, year but when you, can you know when. You habitually lose. In the postseason and you continuously losing the postseason yeah. That's going to happen You're going to get rid of the, coach even though, he, was the. Coach of the year. And he was awarded the coach here then they made a big move and, the big move was getting rid of demar 'cause when Kuwait Leonard, became available and you knew that, the, San Antonio Spurs were probably going to trade him we were thinking what Boston we were thinking Philadelphia we.

"I think the Averill Levin song is appropriate complicated because if you're like me, it's been a lot of time yesterday trying to unpack what this deal means, the Spurs sending a letter to the Toronto Raptors and getting the star. I think a bona fide star in return and demar derozan neither star is apparently happy about the deal. Even though one of them we, we never really hear from the total package Leonard and Danny green traded to Toronto for demar Rosen Yaacob, Pertile, and a protected two thousand nineteen. First round pick. We'll hear from Gregg Popovich here in just a second, but this is this really is one of the more. Bizarre trades we've had in a very long time ESPN NBA insider Brian Windhorst agrees this is one of the more bizarre star trays I've seen. In the last fifteen years covering the NBA because we don't know. About Kuwait Leonard's health that's a really important factor here is. He going to be the same. Player he was two years ago when he may, have been able to lead an upset of the warriors in the, playoffs or is he going. To be diminished somewhat will. He stay in Toronto will do Marta rose Rosen be a good fit and, continue the Spurs level of competitiveness this is going to be one that's going, to be difficult to call today what I will say is this the. Raptors got a really good discount here and they leverage this trade and they got away to to to. Find a way to accept this, risk and this could elevate them to the top team in the Eastern Conference they are really good if, Kawhi, Leonard is himself yeah but they're. To me is. The biggest if this trade and I'm Brian that I, think it's gonna take some time to really kind of Figure out all right you, know what's what's this going. To mean for San Antonio what's it going to mean for Toronto, I, still feel. Like the Celtics are the lead dog in the. East but the Leonard injury situation which is just weird it's just weird it had them, out basically. The entire year last year he wasn't with his team during the postseason Leonard. For his part doesn't really ever talk you never gives us an update on how he's doing no one's seen him, play in forever no one seeing them? Workout? In forever in so Kawai, Leonard went healthy, I, think, most of us would agree top five if you're not on. Board with that at least a top ten player the game's best perimeter defender..

"I definitely think that that would help i think that if you had kuwait leonard at your side when you're pitching lebron would be a tremendous asset but i do think that this will be more than just about this summer's transactions if lebron decides to go to la it will be about what the lakers can become and a longterm decision not just a short term decision he can still end up staying in cleveland but i think he knows that the cavs are gonna have a hard time improving to match the warriors whereas the lakers have a lot more avenues where they chase them down and that's going to be a factor even if it's not paul george right now we're not talking a lot about the philadelphia seventy sixers where where are the sixers and and all this yeah do you think that they've definitely got a chance they're going to get a chance to pitch lebron their plan i think a big factor in this will be joel embiid can lebron joel embiid get together have a dialogue about how they would play together because that would be a most important factor the sixers are very attractive because they're young they have cap space their up and coming but from a basketball standpoint they don't really fit with lebron especially embiid so i think they're in the mix but i don't think that they're the leaders i think the lakers david are the leaders for lebron james it's amazing to say but i think that's where we are more on lebron the free agent later in the show de'andre jordan lebron opted against picking up the final year of his deal with the clippers leaving more than twenty four million on the table wold reporting here in the mass have is for one another with dirk helping to make it happen tim mcmahon reports the mavs declining the five million dollars team option on novitsky allowing the map to clear cavs base for jordan naked still signed dirk to a four point four million dollar contract espn front office insider bobby marks joins us in studio to explain why the two moves had to happen to land the center who turned them down back in twenty fifteen they've got about twenty million dollars cap space after the renounce some of their free agent holds dirk koetter five million dollars team option what they did was they declined the option they will probably renounce his whole teased cap space go up to about twenty five twenty six million dollars they will sign likely signed the andre jordan and then they will have the room in level exception worth four point four to go back and sign dirk ironically it's just happened two years in a row and he'll have to take a six hundred thousand dollar pay cut to do so three years ago we were talking about the situation in dallas than la and now deandre jordan likely it will be a maverick and i said if you don't opt out of and twenty four contract unless you got an insurance policy policy somewhere in that policies probably dallas meantime celtics president danny aines says his team will explore trades but a deal of any magnitude is unlikely boston has been linked to leonard stein straight talk brought to you by straight talk wireless best phones best networks no contracts let's bring in first fours berg who covers.

"Right so totally confusing because the nba has a lot of rules about this stuff and mainly the issue for the celtics is that unlike the lakers who have looled deng's massive bad money contract that they can use for salary matching purposes the celtics have made only good moves of late so they don't have anyone that they wanted dump that's making too much money that being said this will be interesting if people start to discuss this and feel good about the idea of a team that won and did as much as the celtics did last year without its two stars going out and getting to kevin durant's in kuwait leonard and lebron james right how are people going to react to this particular move because the lakers at least you could say all right the lakers eight it for a couple years they grew up with some young talent and now they can go after a big name to the celtics need it or you pulling a kevin durant if you're these two superstars by adding to a team that presumably is already going to be in the money in the east with wants those two guys get healthy let's also remember the other thing the celtics have that could matter to this person this conversation the celtics have a ton of upcoming draft equity not just this year obviously this year they have what the twenty seventh overall pick but you start to look next year in two thousand nineteen they have the seventy sixers top pick or sacramento's topic they have the grizzlies pick of it's outside the top eight they have the clippers pick if it's outside the top fourteen and they have their own pick day of as many as four picks in the first round next year and it doesn't end after that three the year after that to the year after that if the spurs believed that they are in some level of rebuilding mode the one thing that the celtics could offer them right now that that most teams can't is a ton of equity in the draft and that will help them decide who they want to be and a ton of young talent that i think is more proven than what the lakers have which could be great but we don't for sure no yet isn't super proven on a team that's actually good.

"The fact that he was able to actually see if system being implemented and the guys bought in i think only what is fred hoiberg best coaching job but i think even with nicole america's bobby polars baba this was going to be his easiest season as coach of the chicago bulls because there were no expectations we talked about the tanking stuff at the beginning next year there's going to be a reasonable level of expectations and there's also going to be a reasonable level for god like marketing and done in levin to want to take that next individual steph where they're going to need guidance and direction from a head coach understandably doesn't like confrontation so if the confrontation doesn't come from coach in the play the compensation is going to come from within and it's going to be up to to sort of deal with that along with more young players so i think he acquitted himself well this year answer some questions i think there's probably just as many questions going into next year with the potential makeup other ballclub vincent you wrote a good article on bleacher report about kuwait leonard in how he has embodied into the spurs way like tim duncan did why has not bought in in san antonio well i i think it's twofold it's tim duncan was a unicorn of a certain way where you know he was a superstar who literally changed with no frills and i don't say that as a good thing or a bad thing i just say that as you look at today's superstar in any walk of life they have leverage they have power they have things that they're going to use because their talent in production dictates that and the spurs developed a reputation because dunkin didn't do those things he wasn't the modern superstar so on the backside of that when you get a guy like wild winner and he's quiet you actually starts and thinks that that's the order that he's going to fall in as opposed to judging him based off of whatever he's going to show you as far as its own maturity i don't think they will prepare poke hawaii leonard not being quiet but saying a lot and the fact that he's sort of at this this schism with the front office and with gregg popovich and there's all these unspoken signals and everything else i think he's trying to.
