"45 on WTO. Now 8 45 let's go to rob woodfork. All right, first round of the NBA draft in full swing, the first pick perhaps taking some folks by surprise. It was not all burns, jabari Smith, but Paulo out of duke that went first overall and it even took him by surprise when he spoke to ESPN. I can't believe what just happened. Honestly, I never would have thought that this would happen. I wanted to be in the NBA, but I didn't know I would be here, man. I really honestly didn't. This is unbelievable and I can't speak right now. I'm sorry. Hey man, your speech was sometimes. When good things happen, things went about as you'd expect from there, the Oklahoma City Thunder took Chet holmgren second overall, the aforementioned jabari Smith goes third to Houston at fourth overall, which by the way is a pick the wizards were rumored to try to get to in a trade. That was actually used by Sacramento to select Keegan Murray, so that was four straight power forwards taken at the top of the draft and point guard Jaden ivy goes to Detroit 5th overall, right now, Portland taking shade in sharp with the 7th overall pick, so we are fast approaching that wizards pick at number ten, we will break in as soon as Washington makes that pick.

"There's people today that are like, we need to look at you know, is Jayson Tatum really the guy? He's 24 and you're in the far animals. I fully prescribed the fact of you got to make the most of your chances when you get there because these windows, I mean, hey, we all thought the Oklahoma City Thunder. When they went to that finals, we're probably going to run the west for a decade. And they'd never made it back. So things happened. So you got to take advantage when you get there. But that doesn't mean you go crazy and start trading people when you're going into game 6 of an NBA Finals. But I get it. Sometimes I wish for my own well-being. I just would just avoid it, stay away. There's no reason because those people, they don't want to be happy, they don't want to be outside. I don't want to see a bright side or a silver lining. They just want to be miserable. So there's times when I'm like, you know what? You want to wallow and they can take what you go ahead and wallow in it. I should just leave you be. Well, they say misery loves company. So that's what you're seeing. That is what they say. Last thing. I feel like fatigue is starting to before we move into the news. I feel like fatigue is starting to become a bigger factor in this series. We're starting to see guys wear down a little bit. To me, like I was watching the game last night and I was thinking this on both sides, this doesn't look like the two best teams in the NBA right now. And I think a lot of it is just they're exhausted at this point, you know, and I think that started to become a bigger thing. Maybe two days off now between games will sort of give them a little bit of a boost heading into game 6, but it looks like you've got a couple of teams that are running on fumes out there. Yeah, I think even the two days off, though, one of those days involves one of the longer flights.

"So when I look at those odds, I still lean towards it's going to be a sign and trade. Maybe the threat of agree of the cap space kind of helps push it. To get that done though. Yeah, I did, but yeah, I mean, he's too good to just walk even with whatever issues they have going on. Okay. Very simple bookkeeping thing here. Derek favors. Picked up his player option. With the Oklahoma City Thunder, fully expected. We all knew he was going to pick that up. He could wind up on the trade market. We'll see. I think he's a movable expiring contract, but what was it about 10 million? Off top my head, I don't have in front of me. All right, there we go. I might not have the draft picks, but I got something here. So Derek favors picks up that player option again. Totally expected what we all assumed was going to happen, but now it's just official. Yeah, and so a couple of things with this, I made the joke the other day that after seeing what happened with Al Horford, our team is going to be burning up Sam presti's phone, saying, hey, what's going on with their favors after your shelter for half the season?.

"That salary cap number of 11 million, but it requires getting creative and a little bit it requires either taking a really bad risk or getting really, really lucky, and a team like the Oklahoma City Thunder is saying, yeah, we'll take him for, you know, if you give us a first round pick, we'll take him for nothing. Like you can just clear him from your books. I can't see that. I think even the thunder would send back some kind of salary. But still, I think they would have to send Derek favors, I believe, to get under the salary cap to be able to do that deal. Yeah. Which I mean, maybe you can pull off something like that. But is Malik monk worth it. The hoops that you're going to have to jump through in order to keep him. Assuming, I mean, who knows? Maybe. I mean, look, there's a quote here from Malik monk, said it's a beautiful experience, man. I love it. He says a play with the Lakers. His brother said, we're very loyal people. The Lakers were calling him nonstop once free agency opened. We don't forget about that. On the other side, it's a business. But I would love to see him in a Laker uniform. The momentum of the piece detailed that the Lakers were even almost in on him at the draft when they took Lonzo. They were looking at Malik monk in the draft and they've been high on him ever since and have been monitoring him ever since I've been trying to figure out a way to get him. Ever since then. So clearly this is a guy they believe in, I can't imagine him taking that many mid level unless it would be some kind of a wink wink thing where he takes it for one year, you get some early bird rights in there and then you then you do something the next off season. You do like a one plus one. That would be a big leap of faith on his part, though. So let's assume that you have to get to that full mid level. Is it worth it if you're the Lakers to pay what you're going to have to pay to free up the room to keep Malik mode? You know, I think it is worth it and it's not specifically because of Malik monk. But having a full mid level just increases the type of player you can go get. Now obviously the free agency class this year is not fantastic by any stretch. But you know, let's say the Lakers were really interested in a guy like Mitchell Robinson. Let's just say, you know, Anthony Davis at the 5 doesn't work. His injuries make it so that he has to play the four during the regular season. Let's go out and get an athletic shot blocking center in Mitchell Robinson. Well, if you have the full mid level, you now can offer like you can get him. Pretty easily. I think that's about what he's going to go for. Like ten, $11 million a year. So I think it is worth it, not specifically for Malik monk, just to have some flexibility. That's the big thing about having Russell Westbrook's $47 million on the books. You have no flexibility to do anything. You're just stuck..

"Maybe that's what's maybe that's what's maybe. It's Jared Dudley not being there. That's the one. I said any chance the Lakers can get kenrich Williams or a Ken rich Williams type player for a second rounder. So the Oklahoma City Thunder have said we want to first, not a surprise. Not as for every team right now once, oh, you want our player? First round pick, right? The rockets. They won a first for Eric Gordon. The pacers just got a first for Karis levert. Every team wants a first for their guy except for apparently the Portland trailblazers. By the way, how on earth did caris levert just get more in a trade than Robert Covington and Norman Powell? Did you see what Norman Powell did, by the way for the clippers, the clippers lost tonight to the bucks. Yeah. Off the bench in like 23 minutes. And the pacers just got more for caris levert than like a lot significantly more. Than what the clippers paid for Norman Powell pacers, you are doing or blazers, you are doing this wrong. The decision to rebuild is, okay, that's fine. And I'm not saying they're fully rebuilding because they've got Damien Lillard. They're trying to free up space. Maybe this turns into something. But my goodness. I tried to look at all the angles, right? And I can see, all right. All right, maybe they're going to be able to get this. Get this figured out. Maybe they're going to free up space. It's going to make them able to do some things in the off season. Okay, maybe this works out. Maybe. Maybe. But just in terms of value, it's really tough to see what they were thinking with that trade. Anyway, that is completely off topic. But Ken rich Williams right now, Oklahoma City Thunder, they want a first. Every team wants a first at the trade deadline. Except for blazers..

"How rough of a season this has been. Now we have to start taking a look at positioning within the play in tournament. Now is the 6 seed completely out of reach? No, but it would take a pretty significant win streak for the Lakers. And again, losing these games that they frankly shouldn't, again, up ten against the hawks, you shouldn't lose that game. These ones are starting to really come back to haunt the Lakers and I talked about this at the beginning of the season. People were saying, oh, it's early in the season. These things happen and all that when the Lakers drop games to the Oklahoma City Thunder and teams of that nature, the problem is now this is the time of year where those early season losses to teams that you shouldn't have lost to really come back to bite you in the standings. And that's what we're seeing. Right now for the Lakers. So again, fingers crossed. Hopefully LeBron James can get back sooner rather than later because things are not looking good in the standings. Now I did say there was an optimistic part of this though. And the optimistic part is this as rough over season as it's been for the Lakers. The Western Conference is more forgiving than ever. It's more forgiving than most years above 500 teams are missing the playoffs in the west. Above 500 teams are not getting in. This year because the west has been the entire west has been hit by injuries. You've got a lot more forgiveness here from the Western Conference. You can be not quite as good. You could be performing at not nearly as high of a level and still get into the playoffs. If you look, though, what's the floor for the Lakers? I think we can pretty confidently say they'll be in the play in tournament. Look, crazy things happen. Maybe they go on a terrible losing streak and then LeBron's out for the season or something like that. Man, knock on wood and hopefully that's not the case. But the Lakers have a three game lead over the blazers to drop to the ten seat. The Lakers are the 9 to drop to the ten, they would have to give up three game lead right now over the blazers. And then the next team below that the Lakers have a 5 game lead over the spurs to drop out of the play internment. So in order to drop out of the play in tournament, you would need to drop below the blazers and the spurs, the pelicans or the kings to catch you. How confident are we that any of those teams is going to win enough games to catch the Lakers? That's probably unlikely. None of those teams are really in win now mode. So we can say that that's the optimistic side of things, is that at least the Lakers should be in the play in tournament. I don't think we have to worry too much about oh my gosh, they're going to completely drop out of the playoffs. They're going to be in. The question is going to be where do they wind up falling? Can they somehow sneak back up to that 6 seed or are they going to be in the play internment and if so, can they get themselves positioned so that they only have to win one game instead of having to win two and that means getting up to the 7 or the.

"You're going to say, yeah, oh, if you're trading away PJ Dozier, a bold bowl who we're never going to play for this team anyway. And I'm going to get $10 million later. Give me $10 million to do that and get that done. In fact, literally the $10 million. And I'll take it. Yep. And honestly, this to kind of close the book there. Then if you're Brad Stevens, a year from now year and a half from now, whenever it is when you're like, hey, I need money because I can add this guy, but it's going to add 10 million to our books. You would hope ownership would say. As you got me that 10 million, the year prior or whatever. So that's why you do this. It's not from a from the owner's perspective, sure. It's about their bank account. And no one should care about the bank account of millionaires and billionaires. But from the team building perspective, that's where you should care, because then that becomes an easier conversation to say. And did doctor the tax for you now I want to go into it. Then they should hopefully then say, yeah, no problem. Absolutely. Absolutely. The raptors reportedly interested in not just Jakarta. We've talked about that. By the way, he's been really good. But also interested in miles Turner if they can get anything get him. The Turner situation is a tricky one. Because of the injury because like a foot injury with a big man stress react then that to me is pretty scary. I'm curious to see what happens with his market if he does wind up getting moved. But just something to note, the raptors need interested in bigs and it's not just limited to Jakarta. Yeah, and I think the thing with Turner, I've said this before, but it bears repeating is you're probably acquiring him with a season plus in mind, meaning this is as much about next year for us in the long term as it is for just the rest of this season. You don't know, we kind of take whatever we get this year as a bonus, but as long as we've got them going forward into the future years, that's great, because then we're really set up moving forward. Lastly, the Oklahoma City Thunder. They want everybody wants a first round pick. The Oklahoma City Thunder won a first round pick for kenrich Williams. That's the rumor that's out there. This is a player that I think a lot of teams would like because they look for that type of wing player. I don't know if they get a first though. But again, I've said it a bunch of times, not all first are created equal. I don't know, though, if they're going to get that, if they can, I mean, you know they're going to take picks if they can get a butt. Sure. I don't know if any teams are going to be willing to pay that. Well, the reality is it makes $2 million, so literally everybody can acquire ten or 20. I'm not doing this to pick on the Lakers, but you'd come in there and be in a massive upgrade over the world. Right now, you could get them?.

"I think that the whole out, but yeah. All right. All right, moving on. We do need to get to the nets. Potentially trading Nick claxton. Yeah. And it makes some sense from the salary cap perspective. They are way, way over the cap way into the tax. I want to say tax alone. I'm going to talk about their salaries. Tax alone, they're well over a 100 million. They've got to be what like a 110 ish? Let's see, they're at, they are 35 million over, which puts them in the yeah, you got to be up over a 100 million total what's especially what you combine. That's in penalties plus salary. Yeah. Like the salary cap is what one 13 this year. One, yeah, almost one. It's one 12.4. So right about there. Their luxury tax payment could is more than a full team's salary, right? Which is amazing. So let's do some math because this will be fun. So they're $35.3 million over the tax line. So that's not even that's not the penalties. That's just the initial number there over. The if we just count guys on roster for the Oklahoma City Thunder right now, there are 46.1 million for guys on roster. Now their number is higher because they have canvas for that journey on their boats and stuff. But just their roster players right now they're in 46.1 million. So they're about 11 million higher than the nets. And then just for reference, the nets are not the highest in the league. That's the warriors at 39.3 million. But still, yeah, it's a big number. But in any event, though, they are considering trading neglects. And part of that might be salary cap related. I think more for next year than this year. Because this year, he's only at 1.8 million. He's finishing up that contract. He signed with them as a second round pick. But then he's a restricted free agent this summer. Unless you're really committed to giving him something around mid level money, I think some team might want to throw that number out there, you'll probably somewhere 8 to 12 million, starting salary. If you're the Nats unless you're really interested in going there, you're probably looking at insane. No, we got a we won. Again, not exactly like the Lakers because they have a couple other places, places they could go to to create trade. Avenues. But he's probably the young player that's actually tradable on the roster as the most value. My question would be, don't you kind of need him?.

If the Lakers lost tonight, I don't know if I'd be able to sit through these shows again. But lo and behold, they come up with a much needed win. Thank God. I guess the night really got off to a surprise. No Anthony Davis. We found out just prior to game time. In fact, we found out that he was even questionable in Frank Vogel's media availability tonight, and then a short time later, it was revealed that AD was a no go woke up with knee soreness. So that's certainly not ideal Dwight Howard started in his place. The Lakers continued with a smaller starting lineup, LeBron at power forward..

"Ever started working on the solution? And I think that not just in professional sports, but everywhere, even with adolescence and used in people, this is the time to really be developing sleep resiliency and skills, not just when it all goes sideways. And so this tool is so much fun. I mean, it really takes that process of introducing something very abstract. And making it very concrete and more importantly something that relates to feedback. There's a lot of great ways to meditate out there, but there's not a lot of great ways to figure out how is it working or how are you doing with it? Are you getting better at the skills? So there's something magically reinforce about the muse that really makes people look at this. I've never given somebody the muse and put it on their head, and when they see what their brain looked like, they see how it works. They get their score, has never said, almost immediately. Only try again. Because what they're saying is always getting it. I think I can do better. Like I understand what's happening now. And I really want to give it another shot because I think that I could be even more calm. I think I could get to that peaceful place even faster if you let me try to get. And it's so much fun to watch that process develop. That's awesome. Thank you for being such a great advocate for so many years that you started using these unbeknownst to us using it with players. It was Mark Simpson, Mark Simpson, who I think is with the Clippers organization now at the time was with the Oklahoma City Thunder and I went out to visit him and he said, hey, I got this thing at a conference. I met these people from a company called interaction. We want to try it. And as soon as I try to I was like, oh, let me try it again. I can do better. But I was like, this will be transformative.

I think they're going to look to add pieces right now. They and the Pelicans are kind of in similar situations and that they have young star players that are ready to win, maybe a little bit earlier than than anybody was expecting. And so they're going to make some win now moves and see what they can do to to reach the next level. But yeah, you know, the maps they didn't do anything on draft night but nobody expected them to win. No pics. Yep. And again we're not going to blow. That's not the last time. We'll talk the Mavs we'll talk off. M as we get into other stuff. And as we hear things and we'll talk about Richardson's decision when it's actually made on other future shows this show, we're going to touch on off-season stuff beyond the draft, but it's mostly going to be focusing on the draft. And so let's go to the Houston Rockets. Who today, the busy night did it for players in the first round. So they had already had three first-round picks. They, they went and traded for an extra one. So just as a cap for everybody, Jalen green with the second pick, then they traded for the 16th pick with Oklahoma City Thunder. They gave up two future first-round picks and not the old pics that they were owed money from Washington and Detroit are going to go to OKC. They used that selection of draft alperin.

Mock Draft 1.1: Houston Rockets

"Let's start with the houston rockets. They are one of three teams with the best shot of having the number one pick in the draft over fourteen percent chance of the number one. Pick a fifty two point one percent chance of winning a top four. Pick one of things that's relevant for the rockets is that if they don't get a top four pick in the draft. They must send their picked the oklahoma city thunder and so right now fifty two point one percent chance they pick it. It's it's really fifty fifty that the rockets even have their pick this year and thunder could potentially have to top five picks. And we'll talk about that a second when we get to the thunder but assuming for a minute that they get the number one pick in the draft. I have the number one on. Big board are sorry. I'm mock draft one point one km cunningham and i'll just say this about kate cottingham it is looking more and more likely that he is going to be the number one pick in any scenario that we can really think about it. Discuss right now he he. It seems like every team and scout. That i'm talking to the league has caved cunningham number one. I mean we'll see more on on lottery night on who actually gets the number one pick in which way it may go. But it's looking highly likely that cape cunningham is going to be the number one pick in the draft regardless of who draft where and certainly for the rockets. he fits indeed It's really a no brainer to have a versatile wing with his feel for the game and the way he can see the floor the way he can defend multiple positions. I think he's a no brainer for the rockets. But i could also say that about a lot of the other teams there so right now and mock draft one point one. The rockets get cade cunningham.

This is so this Jeff they work. They were atrocious and embarrassment but I don't listen, I don't care that Jayson. Tatum and Kemba Walker didn't play. I do care because I think Jason should have been out there. I don't know how bad the injury is, or whatever, is dealing with public. And it came like this, you gotta be out there. This is what 11/12 games left in the regular season. You needed this win, you could ill afford a loss like this, but even without Tatum and Kemba last name. They were without shade gilgeous-alexander, and they stink, they absolutely stink. They're trying to tank they've got a garbage team other than Lou door and you lost. You had supposedly Dead one of the top 25 players in the NBA in jail and Brad. I thought, Oh, supposedly. And it starts now, you mean using all subjects, you mean you're not lose. That's the supposedly Factor know. It's, it's true. Jeff look. I think they rolled the dice on Tatum thinking we could get away with tonight and still squash out the window. And so we needed to give him a day off. Let's pick the game and they pick this one on the back to back on the front, end of a back-to-back, and it burned him obviously. And I don't think he's, I don't think he's hurt but I mean, I get it doesn't matter.

I mean, that's too I mean that is one of the team's two best players and two of the team's overall most important place, but at the end of the day, it's it's just a lack of focus and a lack of energy. They came out slow was a 22-10 I think to start the game in favor of the thunder. It's just a lack of energy.

Phoenix Suns complete trade to acquire Chris Paul from Oklahoma City Thunder

"Right welcome back. Look who's here perk with us Stephen i'm going to start with you on this one. If the nets do get hardened do they need to win the title. This season having this type of talent downright without question. And i'm gonna tell you why because the pressure is going to be immense first of all your k. d. Obviously everybody's looking at you comparing you to lebron and stuff like that Lebron goes and he assembles a big three. Then ultimately you want up to him and went to golden state and gave the ultimate big three. Lebron sits up de a d. is now in. La so you go to brooklyn you got kyri and then you get a james heart so the pressure will be immense on him. This guy read because of all the things that max has titillated throughout the years and to a lesser degree kendrick perkins when you talk about the lack of leadership there kyri urban may have shown from time to time. He elected to leave cleveland. The go to boston. The situation in boston didn't work out. He goes to brooklyn the only place. Twenty games helped was an issue and all of that stuff plus. He made some headlines. That's an issue. And then you've got james hearted remember. James harden didn't want the white how houston Ultimately he didn't want chris paul in houston and then obviously even though again and kendrick perkins knows this far better than me because he has those relationships with these guys. In particular russell westbrook russell westbrook made sure to reiterate to me. Listen his relationship. With james harden is as is big tom their brothers and they're gonna always be brothers. We did not talk about basketball. Just a relationship that he has with james harden which also articulated over social media. I by the way his relationship with james harden they are brothers and they are tight but that doesn't mean they want to play together so as a result of that rests with westbrook is planning on moving on as a result of him. Moving on james harden is moving on. And so there's going to be some pressure to bear because with all of this money that harden and k. d. and career getting paid along with the expectations. Let's bring in the last element you in brooklyn. New york utah. You're even denver. You're in the mecca the media capital. Now obviously the knicks are in new york city madison square. Got it but we should all be allergic to mentioning championship protection at a new york. Nixon brett at least at this moment atop the faith man leon roads and we'll worldwide west but the bottom line is is blasphemous sacrilegious to talk championships. And and the knicks but brooklyn fall weighs less than ten miles is less than ten miles away. It's still a part of brooklyn one of the five boroughs and there is going to be are meant pressure on manse. If the three of them larry know why go give it their. Kp might be right about this guy at five in milwaukee we might see silly. Do some things we know. Lebron is at whatever but if those three assemble no one is going to be interested in any stupendous as to why they did not win after three guys. You damn right. They need to win the chip because the world the world will be watching. First of all brooklyn is even thirstier for a championship. And i think is a bigger deal than a team winning in manhattan in the sense that brooklyn hasn't had a championship in sixty five years. Since the dodgers left brooklyn in fifty seven but they want and fifty five to go to air like that. But the knicks. You're right it's been almost forty eight years for the knicks but brooklyn is the nets or the team in new york. The knicks don't even exist compared to the nets right now and let me say this. There is immense pressure for them. To win you're right stephen while they're together i'm here saying it doesn't need to be in the first year for example if hardened goes to brooklyn and they lose in the finals and a tough series to the lakers. A team like that. It's all right but they have to win while they're together. Even this year's lakers team. I didn't pick them because it's hard to just throw a team together with guys have been played together. Get all the complimentary pieces right. Get it all right to go all the way. We saw that with lebron and his return to. Cleveland went to a game six of course they had injuries on that team. But that's part of it is coming off the catastrophic injury and we saw it again a result before that when lebron showed up miami with the big three it some it takes some times a year to get it right with guys playing together so i would say while there's enormous pressure for them to win while they're together because k. d. if he's most of themselves even is an mvp caliber player so is hardened and kyri may not be an mvp but he's more than just an all star he's all star plus you have to. Mvp caliber players an all star. And then some you're supposed to win a championship to gather. I don't think it has to be in the first year. And i wouldn't say that it's the kind of pressure for example when katie went to golden state. It's like there was more downside. Like guys you have to win it. If you don't win a championship that sorry i wouldn't. I don't think people will be looking at this team like that. Sorry if you don't wanna chip you gotta get outta the east
