Jared out, learn shoot to three Nick Claxton's.

But again, if Katie didn't want him carried in, want him, they would have different head coach right now. They wanted them they have good relationship with them. It will work.

"He was still positive so to some extent, the team doctors in consultation with the front office and Dinwiddie decided that Dinwiddie is not going to play for the nets in Orlando, so the nets consign whoever they want at this point, and and I think it's a cool move that they signed Jamal Crawford. You could hear like the praises and the roses being thrown at his feet for office former teammates, which everyone seems to love Jamal and Yeah, just so very interesting up for them. I I don't know. I Love Jomaa I love Jamal Seattle Guy, but I was just wondering. If you're the Brooklyn Nets, why not go for a younger guy that you feel like can maybe make a difference. I'm not trying to like. Hey, mom glad he got an opportunity, but What are you gonNA get at assigned. Jamal Crawford for this time. Is it like more of a PR, or are you looking for Jamal Crawford to be a part of your team moving forward? That's a great question. scallops Jamal Crawford. Is You know right around forty years old? He played with the Phoenix Suns last season, the averaged about eight points a game. His shooting percentages weren't great. He played about twenty minutes a game, four Phoenix and scale. He's one of the guys that again. We're not trying to pick on Jamal. But when you look at the advanced numbers of the on-off splits the plus minus you know some of the advanced analytics. He's one of the worst players in the League for at this stage is career. Those metrics so so that combined. Combined with the fact that it's also rumoured, or it seems like the Brooklyn Nets are going to sign Michael Beasley. one thing I I should also mention as that, Taurean, Prince starting forward for the Brooklyn Nets also tested positive for corona virus, so he's been ruled out of the restart in Orlando as well as Brooklyn's really depleted scowl, but I, I agree with you. I don't really understand the wisdom of signing Jamal Crawford at forty years old, and Michael Beasley. WHO, if for potentially when he signed with the nets will be playing for his ninth different NBA team. Yeah I. Mean I I. Don't gay must be to appease Katie and Kyrie. Sean marks doing what I do. Explain this explain to us like from GM standpoint. How what are you looking to get out of like a situation like this? Aren't you trying to give a young guy a chance to see if he's good, then you can sign him to like who. WHO's the Guy Lou Dort? That from Oklahoma City four years five million dollars they aren't you for a guy like that. David Knew Wabi type that you're like? Wow, we can get this guy for low money for a long period of time, and it could really help our franchise. Give us so much Catholics ability. Is that the mindset in a situation like this that you would have? It is, it is, and that's why I'm a little bit perplexed. Spy What Brooklyn's doing. I think Sean. Marks is a really bright GM, and and a great guy done a terrific job there especially given the handy was dealt with no draft picks and not many assets. He is really built that thing up. SCALL-, but I honestly wonder you know how Sean marks is fueling now. His job has changed significantly over the past year. Year, it was almost exactly a year ago. That people were giving him a ton of credit deservedly, so forgetting Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to come to Brooklyn however, since then they fired their head coach Kenny Atkinson. Durant is not played a game in a nets uniform that was expected irving his been in and out of the lineup, as is typical with Kyrie and now, Scou- they're going on to Brooklyn with A. A with a ski. Excuse me going to Orlando with a skeleton crew. Missing of players some would argue you know five of their best players. I think the only one in that upper grouping who is playing is Carissa avert other not they don't have Kevin Durant Kyrie, Irving Spencer Dinwiddie Taurean Prince De'andre Jordan. Wilson Chandler Nick, Claxton style. All those guys are out for Orlando so yeah I. I agree with you I think. Think the approach of finding a young guy who might be go forward piece. Because let's let's be realistic scale. They're not going to be competitive anyways. Jamal Crawford and Michael. Beasley aren't GonNa make the Brooklyn Nets competitive, so if you're not gonNA win, why wouldn't you give a younger guy? A chance like they did with Spencer Dinwiddie and hope that maybe catch lightning a bottle and find somebody who's on your roster going forward. I mean I don't get it. But every since Kharian Katie got there and I loved show. Marx's done up until that point and I I don't understand I. Don't understand firing. Kenny Atkinson I. Don't understand you know. The signing of the Andrea or I don't understand a lot of things that Sean marks has done. I don't know if it's being being GM name like sort of like the tipping point like Malcolm Gladwin, talked about in his book. Once you go down the road, you gotta continue to make some of these bad decisions to make up for like a bad decision that you make first of all by getting a guy like I really. Really, or or maybe he really believes that signing some veteran guys for the following season. Remember Kyrie talked about. There's these guys are going to be here and the rest of us. We gotta get some different guys in your. Maybe the different guys Kyrie was talking about with Beasley and Jamal Crawford. I don't know it doesn't make sense for. Shaw marks to do such a good job up until this year and I just I. AM by the way by the way I actually really like the guy that they've brought in in replacement of like Kevin Durant being out at Cairo. I liked the way Brooklyn plays, but I don't understand what what the point of doing this is. I agree with you. Scale may in in my opinion, is a fifteen plus year executive and the guy who had the GM title for five plus years I think Sean marks has a lot less control now than he had prior to Kevin. Durant and Kyrie Irving stepping in the door of the Brooklyn Nets practice facility and joining the franchise I. I think it seems like he's in those guys to have a significant voice, one of the things that was reported. Relatives who Michael Beasley. Is that Beasley strong relationship with Kevin Durant. Was a factor, but scowl I. Don't get. Is You know with all due respect to Jamal Crawford and Michael Beasley there's a reason these guys are on different teams every year at the stage in their careers. I don't understand it and I don't I mean. Maybe he had the master plan, and maybe that master plan will show up next year and what happens. I mean I would lean on you and telling me like was the point of not finding some eight man that can help you like that guy. That's like wait a minute. We could sign this guy to a good deal. I just don't understand and listen I'm all for Jamal getting a job. I love that I'm actually. I'll be entertained. Watch Jamal played because he the entertaining guy who start your Masha have been in all star Games so he's so fun to watch, but from a strategy standpoint I just don't understand it..

"Hour, CBS Sports Radio Sports flash. All right, Chris, the NFL preseason At the very least, we'll be an abbreviated preseason. The remains the possibility there will be no pre season at all.

"From deep one of eleven from deep in the fourth quarter couldn't guard anyone from the Grizzlies you know it it it this is one of those games where I do feel like you don't we know you and I are obviously well me I know obviously who hadn't had a top caliber athlete but you do have a sense of how you feel when you get back from a road trip especially getting in late back to back not to make excuses but you do know that you have this sort of energy level and focus that's not at its top for show when you feel like that a lot of times like we'll talk about it if we come to a game and we get a good game will be okay could you get into the energy and then all of a sudden if the game gets sluggish you get a little sluggish and now you really start to feel the effects of animals feel like tonight the nets there early on were Jammin with them and we're going then all the sudden when the shots weren't falling in Memphis game a little punch then the fatigue set in and then it was just forget it the net sort of let go of the rope in the Grizzlies pulled away in the second half and now I I don't I don't but at this stage of the game and and with the issues that the nets have had in the close games and want to certainly be in the playoffs back to back as a part of life in the NBA and and you had a number of guys didn't play that many minutes last night that we're going to have to play a lot tonight than you expected more out of those guy I expected more out of those guys didn't would ease the harasses the the prince's the Allens that that that watched last night from the end of the third quarter on you expected more than tonight yeah I Y. yeah I want more from them I I both sense that one of them to be alive and you know I don't think it was a to it maybe a little bit tired big deal that they did not know that this got me they got they got they got manhandled by this saying that they get beat they thirty nine but the Grizzlies if they didn't have such an emotional game last night I think that could I think the game as they did get through it but I will give credit to the Grizzlies they did go out and they took care of what they had to do I'm sure if you have you know if you were the head coach of your tailor take is for the game you say listen these guys had a big win last night they're coming let's go in there and let's just step on their neck and that's what they did well and not right out of the gate remembers thirteen to six knots had pretty good life and energy to start the game I just thought what was shocking was ever to go to the pants in the Tyus Jones going five for six from three Josh Jackson he goes four of nine from three has there's eighteen and nineteen points with those two guys yeah I got I got I did you know the really kind and no name guys you're not really used to the job Moran was dirty wasn't great I do what I do see though that he has a nice way of bottom as far as facilitating it's not all about him out there trying to score an interesting mix in his game that I can see how it contributes to a nice place energy about this great city grizzly team I do see a toughness about him though there's a physicality there's an ad service group again villagers don't Berks add your tile I understand I'll let you know he's plays at his own pace but he's been around the NBA awhile right now and the nets weren't up to it they weren't up to the task that meant they missed shots their open shots him but there are other times when the Grizzlies are just on every pass but the ball was sticking a lot I thought there was a kennel easy kind of action and if you thought you'd get something with because you got so fired up about shows up last night he did it for a little while and I thought there was a sequence in the second half and chose it came back in we're talking about Joe is a get back out of the four and he makes a couple plays it makes a little move in the paint Kevin Durant gets jumping around and then I make something else happen and then all of a sudden Josh Jackson makes a three box set on one end and then scores quickly on the other end ending all the energy that you thought was accumulated was over was over from that Jack that Josh Jackson activity and performance in that little sequence and I know Tyus Jones it throughout the game but Jackson broke our hearts when the nets have or had kind of felt like they might have to get some Jews going and then it just got steamrolled in the fourth we're waiting to hear from that said coach Kenny Atkinson the Grizzlies were led by Josh Jackson had nineteen points he was four of nine from behind the arc eighteen for Tyus Jones fifteen points for John Moran had seven rebounds five assists no turnovers had a steel he was a plus twenty in just twenty nine minutes yeah I know it I know he's he's great and yet he didn't feel like he was saying to himself well I I'm I'm I top rookie and I've got to try to get twenty five and never got that feeling from him tonight I thought the game still came to him they made the plays when they want it any facilitated got others involved and I think that's why there's a good energy about this group with the Grizzlies the nets in the loss were led by Tory prints at fifteen fourteen for liver fourteen off the bench for Jio's it shows a five of eight shooting high I think she owes it though in these last two days specially we did last night has earned has earned some playing time here now that's going to be an issue coming forward I mean he's some of these young guys and getting some playing time fields is a guy that certain time so that Nick Claxton night had thirty four in a win for the Long Island nets thirty four points nine rebounds give me some more clarity what's more class yeah I had a fever I got of it and the only prescription is more cost where we need to hear from Katie acted sooner stated abnormally long time to come out here.

"And if and if traversed length is really trying to build up this template, I think Nick Claxton is probably the closest you're going to be getting to a rim. Protecting short rolling guy who can make plays off the dribble. And potentially shoot three's which we should acknowledges crazy talk by a top ten pick. I think he was a second round in a couple of weeks ago. Right. So we're in that. We're in that started the draft season or just speculating wildly. I think he had a really good game on the scrimmages and it's like you know what that's enough. Let's gamble on him. But, but it's also like the hawks have so much flexibility, they can absolutely tray down, if they feel like he might not be worth drafting very high is true. But yeah, it just seems like such a more sensible option than drafting Jackson Hayes at number ten you. That's what we're we're both kind of not real big on Hayes because of that. He so far away skill wise. What about our guy? Brennan, Clark though, clarken Collins it'd be kinda crazy, too. I mean that would be like it wouldn't even be small ball because it's not an option like they would just both be pretty small players. Isn't that, but that would not be the fastest big men in the league Luli like came out the lobs Clark? Ooh. Man. Yeah. Arkan Collins catching. Lobs from trae. That'd be the most exciting team. The league one of the most that's a super face for Gaza, most of the corner, three. Oh, yeah. I mean, that would be a semester, Superfund team. I just wonder like for all the advancements that John Collins made on offense. She's still was very much negative on defense. And I like Brandon Clark is probably not big enough to cover for a lot of his, his miscues out, say he could. Well he blocked a lot of shots. Right. He got the rim pretty well. I mean and also the thing with the hawks is that they're I guess uniquely suited because they do have a bunch of platoon big men on the Olympics around. Yeah, I land your pay deadman Lenny's minutes at center, you kinda fun little mix and match. I like this they can give Brandon Clark and candidates in the Strath. I'm the hawks. That'd be fun. Man. I'm in there. Yeah, there's no complaints here. I was just wondering in terms of, like term. Potential. Do you see a John Collins, Brandon Clark front court foregin Obama, small ball evangelists, like I'm gonna go for, so you're seeing five downs a lot five years down the line? Everyone's gonna look like this anyway. So the hawks might as well be a head of the curve. I mean right. You got Janas if you're gonna play against us in the playoffs a lot. She probably are I wanna have a lot of long fast. Small guys run with them jump with them. You know. And that is tantalizing. And, you know, maybe maybe the hawks ended up with their version of Katy somewhere down the line as well. Really, really lock in that warriors template. Well. Kevin durant. That's why we're doing no money him another team with a lottery pick, but also multiple draft picks in the later parts of first-round is the Boston Celtics. They have the fourteenth pick the twentieth pick. And the twenty second pick. Do they have any seconds in this? They, yes, they have the fifty first hand. Okay. They they've got a ton of Texas crazy. I don't know what they're gonna do. Always always. And I think for the most part, our mock drafts mock drafts from around every single corner of the internet. Typically has the Celtics drafting kind of role of the dice players guys who you know, may need time to develop. But have, you know, elite upside we're looking at Kevin Puerto junior, I've, I've seen you know what bowl times as well. What do you really make of the situation? And is there anything to really make of it until the kyri situation is resolved? It kind of seemed. Resolve now, doesn't it? Yeah. Those. Right, sure. So he's it seems like he's on his way out. He's already kind of using the wave wave emoji on Instagram, although probably was not directly in relation to his free agency status but seems like the. Writing's on the wall..

"I think if you look at his numbers, the three things that he had those well as steal rate free throws and threes. And like, if he goes twit land, it's all he has to do. Right. He and his spot up off the ball, you know, play defense multiple positions. And you've got hurt or an radish on the wings next to trae. I to me, that'd be really not. And I think like if you ask writers to go somewhere, he has to be the man react to do a whole lot of creating. And I'm not sure it's gonna work but you can move somewhere in a smaller role where he can spot up off the ball. He can be pretty effective to me think he'll be there at eight. And do you think they'll try to go up and get him? I thought he says a hawks player. Yeah he definitely feels like hawks player. And I just don't think he's a he has necessarily the production level to, to necessitate like trading up for him. I don't know. I, but I also feel like with who Cam radishes is, you know, being represented by and, and how he can definitely look the part of a star. I think he's I think he's probably moving into the top five points. It's all you look at like him being volume three point shooter. They really nice. So that's something to think about it. And they have like didn't they'll trade. I remember KFC was saying they could trade Taurean prince early season. I mean he's kind of the other the unknown their core going forward Taurean prince package with some of these picks could probably not something pretty good. I mean if I was the Lakers the next I would love to get tore, he's like the perfect guy annex Laurent, or Katie or someone like that, Louis. He's, he's still a top ten pick out of it. Yeah. Taurean prince I kind of projected before the season started. Oh he was going to be the hawks breakout player. Trae young might take some time to acclimate things really go as planned for him. He kinda got right? Yeah. He got hurt. He he got lost in. Shuffle. He kind of stagnated in terms of his statistical production, but you're looking at a guy who's six eight strong body can play multiple positions can defend multiple positions can shoot threes is, you know, comfortable making plays out of pick and roll, like at baseline. That's a that's a player that the rockets could've absolutely used. He's a he's a player that makes sense for a lot of teams trying to win now. Yeah. I think we're both team Taurean prince way we will surprise about the trade rumors. Yeah. I just, I don't know where he fits, especially if you have to pay in the summer A up. up high for an extension. Right. Is he is a restricted free agent in twenty twenty I guess, that's what it is. He's going to want a lot of money. Yeah. And so that kind of doesn't necessarily fit with the timeline of everyone else on their roster. John Collins is an, you know, he's probably going to begin his extension twenty twenty as well, so Collins the other guy too. And I think with Collins fit is so important, because I look at the guys, you could be there on a front court basis. It's all about how do you make sense next to John Collins, like, do you trust called is shot enough to where you can play another non shooter next to him? Or do you like want a bigger player? You can kind of cover them defensively. I think that's why a guy like Dwayne deadman make made so much sense. He's part of their team for sure. Absolutely. A guy who can who was not afraid to shoot threes. I think he shot like two attempts per game. A legit rim protector, just guy who news role and doing deadman coming out of. College can you imagine can with three point shooter? I actually oh, really like he had like the like baseline like look of a guy who could stretch the floor. He just didn't have the percentages. Yeah. This is this is why I think I wonder about. I think that the guy who went starting to fall in love with in the strap this, Nick Claxton, right? The georgia. Big georgia. Big man. I'm sure the hawks..

"Rim for you. Can switch screens for you when he has the intensity, he has tolls for, for Zion that's going to be about. Like where does his mind go, like how much does because dream onto the basketball genius, and you also wish Zion had a longer wingspan, but he makes up for him with his athleticism and his timing. Also KFC we're getting old man Tung s from five six years, wrote about them to man up there. It's a and I think you know, there's a handful of other guys like scrolling through the draft guide just going through. I think Brennan Clark, even though he's a little, lean he somebody that makes sense, PJ Washington. We'll talk about in a minute. There's somebody with his size and mobility makes a little bit sense, Nick Claxton, who we just talked about somebody, you can put on him for these like bigger guys, in terms of wings. We mentioned earlier Daiquan Jeffries make sense, Nazir little from North Carolina who struggled, but again, long-term he has the strong body in the theoretical defense. You're you look we're talking about you honest here. Let's the next. This is getting ridiculous. I mean, there's these guys, I mean you need a big body by I mean, not all these guys are going to pan out, but a handful of them could make I mean that point. Let's talk about like Taylor Horton Tucker has a seven seven one seven two wingspan at six two or the number of guys, and they've got good jobs for like two guys can him probably. Guys that you can lease as Andrew Dolores guys who can guard, you know, relatively speaking like you got to put a body on them. So somebody can at least put a body on. Let's move on to a question from creepy curse, which is Chris Vernon, by the way. Which of Kentucky's, three project, the first rounders do you see having the most impactful, professional career? So let's go through the three of those guys starting with Kelvin Johnson, who is probably the most hyped prospect, heading into the season. I guess she was sure learn the biggest freshman that they had. Yeah. Down here quitting last. Now Johnson, what do you like about his game? Johnson's generic three hundred template six six reasonably athlete decent jump shot, very competitive. Very competitive so hard. I mean he was the one guy in that game when the opening night when they got crushed race. So is so playing everybody else. I took their soul. They were like, oh my God Johnson was still playing. He's a very competitive kid. I don't think I don't think he's very skilled. I think he's very big athletic. I mean, to me, just kind of a guy, it's like he tries hard, but it's feet. Dumb move at fast. It'll move that fast. You definitely don't want him dribbling. I'm not a not a big guy. I remember thirty two. Tyler hero, Danny. Guy who you would hope to kind of become a guy who can create out of pick and rolls can hit shots hit difficult three point shots. I'm not really sure where I am with him like given all of my hype and love for Kevin herder of, like I'm always looking for another bigger herders, huge care to hero, heroes, like six four six five as negative wingspan. Yeah. So I you you're always kind of looking for the next, but I don't I don't know if I don't know if this is probably very lazy. But like, you know, Luke Kennard right is worried about him on the wrong team leaves be a bench guy play defense. Right. That's my concern in the guy that we, you know, all mutually agree based off our rankings. I is the best of the three continue prospects is PJ, Washington. The past season. He improved his three point shot after testing the waters last year shot forty two percent from three still only sixty six percent of the line, but at six eight with a seven to wingspan he projects to somebody who can be versatile.

"So I understand you were in attendance at the McDonald's all star game last night. Tell us what you saw. And what's Tom green up day right now. Yeah. Well, right now George basketball trying to make a comeback and build an NCAA tournament team of their own Anthony ant man Edwards, the top ranked shooting guard in the country Georgia commit expected to sign in April. And he's one of as I said four top one hundred guys he had a pretty nice game last night, twelve points, three assists, couple rebounds. It's it's really hard to judge talent from the all star game the way they play up and down. I think the final score was. One fifteen to one hundred there wasn't a whole lot of defense being played. But interviewing that young man, you could tell that he's really bought in to what Tom Kriens trying to do. And and you look at Georgia, and it's been a long time Paul since they've been very competitive. They've I think they've only been to the NCW tournament once in the last decade. And that's why Tom Crean was brought in this last year was pretty rough. But they've got a lot of talent coming in. And if Nick Claxton comes back, I think Georgia could evidence he delay tournament team next year. Mike, you've covered a lot of college basketball. You were Tennessee when Rick Barnes Scott there, and people were not really sure what to make out of that higher and look at them. Now, you you're you've watched the cream situation. He's a veteran coach final four coach in the past. He's been some big time schools just overall watching basketball searches and we're talking today about Dato to at Alabama there couple of other openings really interested from a journalistic standpoint, as you've watched these things your sense of of how athletic direc-. Go out and bring in sometimes well-known coaches, and sometimes we gotta look up the name twice. That's right. Well, it depends on the athletic director. And it depends on the programs commitment to basketball. I thought Auburn, you know, when they hired Bruce Pearl. You know, some people might have said they took a chance, but I think right now everybody would have to say Bruce Pearl's done a pretty incredible job there at Auburn as far as winning in the SEC tournament and the win over Kansas. I couldn't have seen coming in. And I watched Brusco seven seven against top five teams as Tennessee's coach. Certainly Rick Barnes was a question that, you know, pull myself hired. I wondered what Rick Barnes had left in the tank, and you know, my argument was well, if he couldn't get it done at Texas with Kevin Durant. How do you expect him to get it done at Tennessee? And we're going to find out. I mean, this is a really critical weekend for Tennessee basketball. They really need to get to the elite eight they have final four towns. They've got all the pieces of the puzzle. And I think reports has done a great job putting his team together. It'd be a real shame. If Tennessee didn't make the final four. Because I think they're that good. I think the SEC's commitment to basketball, and you and I heard the same lip service for years and years and years and years, but they've actually gone out. And don't something about it. Now as you've seen this league, get more and more competitive with all these SEC teams left pretty impressive. And I guess that these next few hires in the SEC will also be proven coaches, and I think Rick Barnes did it differently. He he decided he was going to do it the right way he wasn't going to cut corners. He was going to build a team from two and three stars story as well known by now others chosen different paths. This league is getting a lot better. But with it. There has been plenty of scandal this year to go around as well. Yeah. Yeah. There's certainly been a lot of programs put under the microscope..
