"pj tucker" Discussed on NBA Front Office w/ Keith Smith & Trevor Lane

"A lot worse if plumlee is your backup pick. That's for sure. Yeah, if he's your backup, you're probably a really good show. Yeah. You know, I think he gets beat up on a lot 'cause he's not a very good defender. But he can rebound. His finishing is good around the room. Can't you free throws or worth a crap? I think he was 39% for the season, which is pretty horrible. But he's a pretty good passer too. He's a guy you can run some stuff through. It's funny, one of the things that we're talking a lot about over on Celtics blog is what a targets for the team. And he's a guy I've said, you know, we have horse even worse. If that was the way you used it, one of the TPs was to go get mason plumlee. Not the end of the world. That'd be okay as a backup big. You know, he fits in because you can run some of the offense through him and do ask him to do some of the same stuff you ask the other guys to do, but yeah, he's a little overmatched as a starter, but he had under 9.1 million. That's good high end backup money and I don't think it's a problem. Yeah, I don't think so. I think you're fine there. And again, only one more year on the contract. And that's important when we talk about a guy like him. Like, it's not like you're committing long-term salary. Staying with Charlotte, the hornets are looking at Gordon Hayward trade Keith. I know you had the same initial thought about this that I had about the Deandre ayton news about the sun's trying to get the 8th pick and the draft and move off of salary. Like a Cameron Johnson in order to free up a little bit of room for Deandre sons don't have to do that. That's just being cheap. You had the same reaction to the Charlotte hornets looking to move Gordon Hayward and perhaps attaching a first round picked him in order to do so. They don't have to do that. And I'm sorry, I missed the key point there, was in order to sign an extension with miles bridges. That's not a qualifier for signing an extension with miles bridge. They could sign it without doing any of that. No problem. It's just, it just costs a little bit more money. Yeah, they have his full bird rights. It's just going to cost some money. The other thing that's the sun's one is bothersome because you're a title contender. So you should be willing to go into the tax. The hornets I get it, they're like, hey, we don't want to pay the tax because we're not sure this team is that level of good. They could do this without paying the tax, too. And that's what's really annoying to me. It's like you're now getting cheap when there's no reason to get cheap. Yeah, if you could get off Gordon Hayward steel at the expense of the 13th or 15th pick, fine, like at all. I mean, great, more power to you. You know, I mean, at this point, the challenge did it's really unfortunate it is. When Gordon Hayward plays, he's actually pretty good. You know, he can shoot, can pass, dribble, he can do a lot of different things for you. Problem is the only place about 50 games a year. Yeah. That's not worth $30 million. It just isn't. That's too much to be paying. And that was the problem when the hornets swooped in and kind of blew up anything Boston in Indiana had going on or just Boston. And I said this just yesterday. This is why this I'll fix you sitting at $100 million over four years. That's our top end for Hayward. I locking in at that number. That was huge because that will match the one 20. That's franchise crippling. And on top of that, remember the hornets did a waving stretch with Nicholas batum. And we're going to get to in a minute in order to do this. So in reality, I'm like 40. Yeah, you were paying them almost 40 million. That's what your actual cost was to have him on your roster because what you had to do in order to get the room to sign him, we questioned that at the time. And now there's a lot of money. Now, to not only pay him that much to now have to potentially just burn a future asset up first round pick in order to move that salary off. It's not great. If you have to do what you do it, but I don't want to hear people saying, well, you had to do it because that's the only way you could resign. Miles purchase because it's absolutely not true. Then if that's the case, just be honest and say, we don't want to pay the tax, which I will have far more respect. For a team that is honest and just as we don't want to pay the tax, then a team that then makes up all these other things about this is why we really had to do these moves. Now, just tell the truth. Yeah, yeah, you don't need to spin it. We can see through that. Yes. Very easily sometimes. All right. Nicholas batum, opts out 3 million in change, would have been his contract for this year. Not a surprise at all. We've talked about supply and demand on the wing market. Demand is high, supply is very low. PJ Tucker doing the same thing here. And again, I think even if they weren't in that environment where supply is low and demand is high for wings, I still think that's an underpay for Nicholas platoon, but given just the reality of this specific market this year, it's a no brainer for him to opt out and see what's out there. Now, I do think he probably stays with the Clippers, but we've already heard a number of teams that have been connected with him or at least would be interested in him. Keith, I know you have the full list, but off the top of my head, it's the Lakers, the clippers, of course, the jazz, the sons, who else was in there. I know I'm leaving. Old in the Celtics. Bulls in the south. You know, it's from cursing. Shopify is the all in one commerce platform to start, run, and grow your business.

"Just seemed disinterested. It's such a straight or frustrated, you know? And when he gets frustrated, he takes himself out of the game. He stops playing defense. He's lazy on closeouts. There was another play where a ball bounce right next to him and PJ Tucker's like, so you're not going to get that. I guess I'll get it and he just snatches it. And scores a putback bucket. Like, everything stops for Tatum. All the wheels stop moving for him. At the same time. When they throw bodies at him and he gets frustrated. And he forces that he forces it and the traffic into paint throws the ball away, commits offensive files. He just gets frustrated. He takes himself completely out. It just keeps happening. And you're right. He is going to drop a 40 piece or a 50 piece. And everyone will frigging, gush all over him again. But you know that this is in there because we keep seeing it pop out. And that's what's scary about it is like ugly Celtics can appear out of nowhere at any point in time and completely wipe away everything that you think that they're capable of doing. And that's what, you know, always kind of stresses us out with this team. It's the mark of a team that hasn't been there and done that yet, charade. I mean, the heat have, and they know when to take advantage, they don't want to attack. The Celtics. Apparently, think that they're already there. They're not. And I think the culmination of Jayson Tatum's frustrations were the turnover that resulted in the shoulder injury that may or may not have been a shoulder injury. And he's laid to any sat down there. Upset. I think he had hurt feelings more than anything else. And the play went down the other end, and then it went back down the other end while he still there was a whole lot of basketball. They got a 3.5 out of that. It was like a full minute of that. Have you ever seen more basketball being played with a corpse on the ground? Playing around his dead body. Yeah. Unbelievable. And then he's like, at this point, I really have to sell it. I just sat here for 35 seconds or whatever it was. I got to leave the court now. And the whole everyone was like, he's going to be back. Again, it wasn't a Marcus smart, break your ankle in two situation. I screwed up again. I turned the ball over for the 6th time or whatever it was..

"Under twenty one and a half Any other ones that you do like well looking at the rests. I kana have to go back to booker. if i'm looking at the sons remaining competitive in this game. I had to pick something on the side at hold my nose and take the points with milwaukee. But i'm probably going to pass entirely on the side but either way if you think phoenix gonna take is going to keep this game close booker's going to have to go for thirty plus just the way it is. This team doesn't have weapons. And even though booker ended up only having two points in the fourth quarter wasn't because a walk is defense because he had to sit out for about seven minutes so booker whichever defender was on them didn't matter got whatever he wanted and i do think booker should get to the line a lot. We know how craft he can be when it comes to getting to the line. I think book are goes for thirty. Plus twenty eight and a half sounds to load. I like that especially with again with chris. Paul was injuries. Can i really have to step up. E- e plays really well at home. Another one at you in. Its guy that you've been really down on him this series. What do you think of. Pj tucker under four and a half points. I know in games. The first three games except for last year seven points but he didn't score game four and i don't think you're expecting much scoring at him. I mean my injury can knock down a three point shot and maybe get one around the basket which is pretty much what he does but i. I kind of liked that under four and a half months plus money some books..

Bucks Bounce Back to Beat Nets and Force Game 7

"We begin today with the milwaukee bucks going wire to wire to defeat brooklyn by fifteen points last night. Kevin durant scored thirty two for brooklyn but it took him thirty shots to get it. Chris middleton and janta compo- were much better they combined for sixty eight points and twenty seven rebounds and they shot twenty-three for thirty six wilpon does milwaukee's performance lead you to believe they can go to brooklyn and win game seven they can. Yes tony and you outlined all the important numbers all of them. And then there's one that's even more important it's zero number of three pointers jacked up by answers compo- none he didn't do it. He kept his big strong quick fast. Talented self in the space where he should be. Don't eat what you. I've been screaming for even the previous series. He kept himself near the basket and did his work there and stop jacking up those shots now. We know they can do it will they. I mean that's the first smart gamed. The bucks have played in. This series should have won the series already. If they had taken the same tact particularly with onto the kupu. But i do. I have faith that they will go with that same recipe. I don't know that. I have that faith. What about you. okay. So yes i agree with you that they can win right and one of the ways they could win as if pj tucker was able to do to kevin durant again in game seven what he did in game six. Because tucker was plus thirty and durant was minus seven but mike game six was not critical for brooklyn. They had a game to play with because the critical game for them was game five and they want it so for every home team has won. You have to tell me why that's going to change now. I look back on game five. And i see kevin durant scoring forty nine points. He's a great great player. I somehow have faith that if it's up to him to win game seven at home. He's going to win it.

And i already had my usually about a week out from the trade. I start having nightmares in the middle of the night. And i did my first nightmare last night. That woke me up about four o'clock that A fictitional trade of paul george in kyle lowry to the nets for curry irving and i woke up thinking like how in the heck is at work cap wise but the person in my dream that i talked to said. Hey don't worry about it. Works and i was like check my phone right off. The bat at four thirty in that did not happen. That is that is really sad. I had a dream last night. That four of my friends in their families were quarantining at a former.

I was dreaming about six days before the train then. I woke up very hungry. Bunny dream will probably more likely to happen than cholera. Paul george and brooklyn possibly. What did it before we start. What did you think of the bucks acquiring j. tucker in a deal of of minor draft assets. I would say yeah. I mean it was creative. I thought that you know the milwaukee because it hard cap and based on the picks going in that drew holiday trade really had limited options to go out and do it but they go under the milwaukee goes under the Luxury tax gives them flexibility on a hard cap houston from their front office with the draft. Picks i don't think it would have been able to do it if They didn't have that two thousand twenty second from the hardened trade. That was the box. Essentially that they got from jarrett for From cleveland jared allen. But i had never really seen a team basically swapping a first for a second and then tr trade back that two thousand twenty second and you move back a year in the draft so it was creative from from both sides. And you'll see what brand. Pj tucker we get in milwaukee because he has not been. He hasn't been great this year at all and is it just the level of interest of a houston team that has taken on major water. And do we get to see the pj tucker from the previous years. But it gives milwaukee a lot of different options as far as lineups that they can. They can roll out there with him.

"Fifty calls yet still missing obvious calls. The nba is living in the double inefficient quadrant. Too much dead time and easily correctable calls still incorrect. Please get the word out that the nba has a set of rules in place that make the most exciting part of the game borderline on watchable. I'm not as angry as julius randle. but i'm steaming. So just one. Quick point of clarification to jackson who was clearly upset He told us he wasn't angry but he was angry It sounds like they got that call on. Julius randle tip from kyrie irving because randall never actually lost control the ball the ball touched but he still had possession so when he put it back down to dribble. He did basically Commit a turnover. So the referee's got the well actually one on that one and escaped a little bit of frustration. Probably you know from the press. The next day but certainly not from randall who had a gigantic meltdown on the court. After that situation. Michael what do you think of the nba's and game situations have you found yourself. Just you know pounding your head night after night like i have with how long some these late game scenarios take to play out. I mean sixers bucks was another one. That just took forever to play the last couple of minutes on wednesday night. And what can they do to fix this. Well i mean first of all. This is why i watch games. Image vast majority of the games. I watch our yard. So i can fast forward through the dead ball reviews and the free throws and all that But it's it's truly terrible last night. I actually got caught watching. It live with the bucks sixers game and i was. I was very unhappy with that I i don't really know how to. I mean what you wanna do. They're trying to do is get every call right right. So that's the whole purpose of the review the purpose of the challenge the the sub two minute automatic review all that is because they want to get the most important possessions correct. So i i see the value there obviously but then it at the same time disrupts the beauty of basketball which is the jazzy flow and The quick possession to possession action For me like the worst calls and this is what. I don't understand what i need. It needs to be rectified. In my opinion is when a player is clearly fouled as the ball is going out of bounds but then they can't review to see if he was in fact fouled only who touched it last..

"But as you were talking. I'm thinking about like how much you know. We talk about zion and brandon. Ingram as a duo. And you've tried to break them up for for years now. But but if you had john moran and brandon ingram is teammates like. Do you think that that would stifle a little bit of like either player. Just because john needs the ball in his hands quite a bit ingram likes the ball in his hand. So i think it's just again. It goes back to kind of roster construction and personnel and context surrounding personnel. You say like. I mean zaylon definitely needs to have the ball. He's installed there as the number one guy for sure and is an incredible passer in a very good orchestrator in the half court. I mean he accused people involved. He has a nice pace to of he's able to you. Know drive in kick and get people set up other opportunities like i really do think he elevates to play of. His teammates has done an accident. There were winning games. I think he drives a lot of it. I wanna put this one to the memphis. Grizzlies fans out there. Emails open floor male edgy. Dot com opened. Floor male edgy. Mill dot com. Would you trade. John rant right now for zion williamson michael. I'm going to bet you. They say no in part probably because if his personality and everything else. But it's a fair question. Look if they don't want to trade them if they're not thirsty for the number one pick in that draft in there okay with what they've got that's an important data point here. I think this is you know. I listened to the five thirty podcast. A latte and they ask. If is this a good case of good use of polling or bad use of polling. This is a bad use of polling. You're can't pull the memphis grizzlies fans and asked her. If they'll trade their franchise player. That's works well. We we as new orleans. Pelicans fans to. I just think like you're saying it's ludicrous. And i'm telling you people who have a vested interest in the grizzlies. Winning would probably make the argument that they're better off from the five year perspective. Ross building perspective and everything else just sticking with jaw. And i'm not saying that they're gonna carry the day but i'm very curious what they would say they might come back and say heck no we like watching zaylon pulverize genus. Kanter on a night tonight basis. So let's stick with that. I i could understand that too. But i don't think it's as one-sided as you're making it out that's my poor. It is one-sided I'm sorry that i'm being curmudgeonly here. Although i will say this has me fantasizing about azan williamson jaren jackson. Junior frontcourt and that duo would win like six straight championships so So if we get nothing out of this conversation at least it's those those images in my head so my my last point to tie off drafting bags you understand. It's gonna take a little bit longer to develop them if they really are the next. Anthony davis then. You have to worry that they're going to do the next..

"Luca or tatum or whoever and do your best to shut them down or make their life really difficult force them into a tough shot not need help. Can you defend in the post. I mean i think defense is really where you bring value if you're a big man so if you can't do those things then you're just not as useful to me and that's why i thought that You know the Pick by the hawks at number six was really fascinating because they already have clint cappella they have john collins who maybe they're trying to move but picking him. That early was fascinating to me because clearly he has a lot of value. I think more so in the defensive end and his mobility on that side of the ball that anything you can do with it and that could serve like a lot of of use for atlanta as it kind of builds out around trae young so i think Long story short defense is really what i'm looking at. If you're drafting a big man. Yeah for sure. Like how dominant do they have to beat up to average five blocks shot like anthony davis did to justify that top of a high of a pig or what's the standard there because all things considered if we're ranking the most important skills in basketball right now like offense is benefit offense is probably more important and playmakers have kind of won the day. You know another comparison that we should probably be looking back at his job. Moran vs on williamson is on. Williams has defied basically everything that we know about The nba like the focus. Three pointers physics to yeah like Leading the league in a paint points being ineffective playmaker at his size and yet you know stack up their teams records from these last couple of years job. Marantz missed a lot of time. He hasn't had a ton of help in memphis key. Players around him have been injured and yet memphis. Track record is better in the win loss column than the pelicans track record in these first couple years in new orleans has tried to go out and target pieces to put around zaylon and yet who's been more effective. There's a lot of different explanations for it but is just one more data point where you're saying. Well you know if they would go back and have another chance. Do you think memphis would prefer to have zion over jar. Do you think there. Okay with ya. I kind of think they might be okay with joshua. Okay so this. Is i get what you're saying. But it's it's ludicrous. Like come on. Man i i well i first of all i like. How memphis is constructed. Their team i think that They just make a lot more sense. I think it's an organizational issue when you're comparing the pelicans success with the grizzlies success like straight up so That's one thing but like and just you know style of play and the memphis goes that just make a lot more sense..

"Ready willing and able to shoot those threes expect his three-point percentage to bounce up from where it was You know sense hearted left because they just didn't have people generating as good looks and frankly he wasn't as body and personally in houston here the last month and a half or so and i also think they just move the ball. Pretty well around the perimeter. Whether it's middleton holiday they turned good shot to degrade tucker is going to be asked kinda pay off some of those possessions. And i'm pretty optimistic. He's going to be able to do that. Now this entire. Pj tucker experience a couple. Years ago michael i coined this phrase player tanking which is basically like when a guy is not happy he just you know mails it in pretty hard. I think james harden is the greatest recent example. A player taking we've ever seen. I mean he did it on the court. He did it off the court he did it in the press conference you know. He got himself fine. I mean he really went all out to make sure everybody knew that he wasn't happy. And it worked out perfectly the key to player taking his once. You change locations automatically. You're just your game immediately comes back and you're just like right back to where you were before you are upset right so hardened gave us the blueprint for that does tucker have the same potential or do we need to worry that maybe his best days are behind. Because you make a really good point that in milwaukee he's not going to be asked to be like the lead defensive lynchpin right like last year against the lakers in the second round. Houston was like alright. Well james russ. They're going to handle all the offense and pj. You're just gonna be the entire defense by yourself and that did not go well for the houston rockets. That's not going to be the case here With milwaukee so they're going to be asking a little bit less him. But i'm just wondering like you know. Compared to peak i would put his peak at maybe two thousand seventeen two thousand eighteen.

"Definitely helps their matchups in those smaller lineups. And they're gonna have to go to those smaller lineups especially against like brooklyn or even miami. I think they're to be better off going smaller in that matchup as well. So that part. I agree with you. I definitely like it for milwaukee side now. Is there another move for them to make. Do they have to find another back. Court ball handler. That's absolutely possible That could be a guy minimum salary guy. Whatever it might be that could be the next domino now from houston side. I think it's a little bit more complicated. So let's explain how these trade picks work. Basically milwaukee gets its twenty two back if the send out there twenty three so. That's pretty even Exchange there except houston is betting that milwaukee will be worse in two thousand twenty three. They they were to be at twenty twenty two. I think that's a pretty safe bet. You just never know how guys are gonna h how free agency is gonna take a toll on your roster here and there so that makes sense. It's a minor win to me from houston side Now the draft pick trade this year. It sounds really good. You know houston's trading its second for a milwaukee's first but there's really not going to be much of a difference there like milwaukee's probably gonna land around twenty five twenty six twenty seven twenty eight in in the first round whereas you know houston's pick was probably going to be like between thirty one and thirty four so you're only talking about maybe ten drafts. Lots at most. That's a helpful. But maybe not. Quite as much as i expected a player like. Pj tucker gopher. I did their real questionable part. Here is the cost of bringing back. Dj august and salary now they do have a massive need for playmakers. In ball handlers. Because john wall. Ben injured. Victor depots question mark and everything else but if there longer term plan is like yeah we got dj august it back as a player that will not go well for you houston and maybe a tank strategy..

"What's up overflow. This is fan gov or the washington post. I'm joined on the other line by michael. The pie tina of sports illustrated now. Michael we spent all of earlier this week trying to beg for teams to make trades and we actually got a couple we did. We did the miami heat acquired trevor. Aretha from the oklahoma city thunder. And the milwaukee bucks landed. Pj tucker one of the guys that we had circled as potentially a trade deadline mover from the houston rockets. In kind of a convoluted package of picks. So let's start with the pj. Tucker one. Because i feel like that's the bigger deal we had talked about. His potential fit with a lot of eastern conference contenders. Whether it's philly whether it's brooklyn milwaukee kinda snuck up out of nowhere and snagged him. What do you think michael. Was this a win. For milwaukee a win for houston and does this change the outlook for the milwaukee bucks as they look ahead and going to try to win this eastern conference. They've got their eyes on the number one seed right now i mean i like it for both sides. I mean obviously your first priority is to look at the bucks because they're trying to win the title so they're more relevant and my my my initial reaction was just the you know. Now i mean. I was pretty high milwaukee before this trade but what i wanted to see from them was a an additional player. I felt like they were one guy away from being able to access the lineup that they really need to actually win the championship with at the five. And i think that this addition i don't know if it gets them all the way there but it gets them pretty close Depending on what. You feel how you feel about dante david. Chen zone and pat coddington. I i still like. Pj tucker a lot. I know that his corner three-point shooting have been down this season. I think that that is a product of playing in a hopeless situation not having James harden as a teammate anymore etc..

What what more can I mean he's he's literally is I mean what more can he do that sequence there when he was like freaking Ed Reed playing free safety when he was trapping and then releasing back into the back towards the basket and picking off passes and blocking shots. Who what who have you ever seen do that before who does them like that was unbelievable that stretch unreal Belichick would be like, oh my God, he was unbelievable. Just the awareness to be able to jump out to trap to get back in the play. I mean that was unbelievable there just everything blocked shots the assists again another I mean it down the stretch too.

The Celtics's Defense Stunned by Lowly the Cavaliers

"Think quite a few of their problems stem from that slow start. So Marcus Smart had to end up taking most of the response offensive responsibilities throughout this one and you know, we often see how that goes. It got them back into it a little bit late, but it wasn't a recipe for success and I thought once you get behind on the offensive end you lose some of that defensive intensity. So both their issues on both sides before we tend to each other specifically for smart who I thought was so bad defensively in this one getting torched by those guards who can be great on some nights. I think those guys have potential sexton in Garland, but the same thing. Massive for you there that I don't see a little word or you know high-level guards for either of those guys their quality guards. They're inefficient. They shoot in the low 40s. They're 30% 3-point shooters that sometimes they can go off from that aspect, but the defense wasn't good enough tonight and a large part of it was because They were Jack and so many shots. They weren't moving offensively. They're missing a ton of shots. So they've given feed out for Cleveland again on transition and as they've done all season they gave up points in the paint a flash in the pan looked

"So if you're the Lakers, it's not like you can accept a lot of extra salary back in a trade. So you have to come up essentially with eight million dollars to send out at least and so the candidates Montrezl Harrell's making nine point two, but he also has a defect of no trade clause and I don't think you're trading him. Tucker. Well West Matthews at 3.6. You've got Kyle kuzma, but he's poison pill provision that makes him pretty tough to move. And I also don't think you're moving him for PJ Tucker Caruso at 2.7 Jared Dudley a 2.5 mark a solid 2.5 Keef at 2.3 Alfonzo mckinnie. Talen Horton Tucker a 1.5 Quinn cook a 1 million. So you would essentially have to stack up. Say Wes Matthews. another contract maybe Markieff Morris and then G h t as much as I hate to say like is that in terms of you don't have many pics to give up. You could give up a second. Are you would you would you start with with tht if it meant getting PJ Tucker? Oh, man, that's tough. Wow. How old is PJ? Do you know? How old is PJ Thirty thirty-five? I want to say off top my head. Let me double-check here. Let me double-check. Yep 35 and he's almost thirty-six. He's thirty-five basketball reference.com is fantastic. They give you not just how many years old he is, but the number of days he's thirty-five years old and 291 days. So he will be he'll be 36 in May before the Mind might be playoff time right around playoff time. He'll be turning 36. This is my only problem with that is I look at you know, we gotta look at guys who can grow with a d and what i c t h d and the the ceiling but potential ceiling he has and the fact that he could grow with a d and where she got PJ would just be looking it would be good for us immediately. Yes, but then, you know, you gotta think big picture on some of these so I mean if you were able package West Matthews along with somebody else that isn't named tht or or somebody else obviously that we don't go want to get rid of that would be one thing which I don't know if we could even do that job. So I don't know I don't feel so good about it. When you do GHz into the pouch just for the bigger. So I don't know that the money works but let's say that it's Wes Markieff Morris and a second or west Markieff Morris Quinn cook and they'll just wait for somebody and a second router then you'd be yes. Yes, what about I agree? I agree with that. I agree with that..

That was the that was the play you were thinking was You like? Yeah, I don't know why it's Dwayne. Wait, but it was yeah, it was Kevin Love and it was it was awful as one of the worst Thirty plays I've seen in basketball and I know there's been a lot but that one just stood out to me and I've never bought a white some sense that you know, cuz kettle of seems like a pretty good dude, and I don't know it just it really irked me understandable understandable. I get it and people are saying that they need to get a chance to square off with alenick in the squared Circle. Oh you go. All right. So let's let's talk. We need to talk about it the PJ Tucker rumors the rumored that the Lakers are are poking around looking for shooters. That was from Asian wage house key before the game. First of all, Gary Sheffield Junior. I mean this this is his like favorite. This is his dream. The Lakers are interested in trading for PJ Tucker now, they are not the only team I think that there is a very very good chance PJ Tucker is traded before the trade deadline. Why because he makes no sense on this team, right if they're getting rid of DeMarcus Cousins and not saying we're going to go young. We're going to go with the quicker players and all of that PJ Tucker makes no sense. They're John Wall kind of makes no sense either but his contract is so big. You can't really move him or do anything with him. Their cleavage need the Rockets are going to rebuild and PJ Tucker is a guy who can help a lot of teams a guy who can shoot threes and defend three-and-d Wing player Chris. What do you think about that Target? Is that somebody that you you're happy to hear the Lakers connected to? Definitely not upset about it. I'm very happy for getting like this favorite player. You know, PJ Tucker has one of the greatest shoe collection, but that decide that that is true all the kicks. Yes. But yeah, I mean, that's a great addition. I think that's kind of an upgrade to what you consider that maybe an upgrade for a martini. Absolutely. Yes, 100% hundred percent upgrade. I think he's got a lot more versatility as a wing defender in terms of he can do a better job on a Kawai or a Paul George not that he's going to stop them but he's slightly more quick footed than Markieff is Mark has bigger taller but but PJ Tucker, I think is that better three indy-style wing player and off. So, yeah, I think you'd be an upgrade over Marquis. Yeah, I think it's all what you said the versatility and PJ compared to Marty and just yeah, I think that would be a good addition. I definitely wouldn't be mad at that. Let's put it that way and then that gives somebody, you know, cuz we always look at that or at least we did look at that Clippers matchup. I mean, I think we're still looking at it, but we're obviously looking at a potential let's match up as well. But yeah, I like the idea of PJ Tucker now, here's the challenge Chris making a trade work. The Lakers are less than a million dollars away from the hard cap. So let's say this is your let's say that the Houston Rockets and they're going to get plenty of offers for PJ Tucker. There's three in D Wing Defenders are always in demand and so they're getting a plenty of offers but let's say the Rockets really want to do a deal with the linkage whatever reason And PJ Tucker's making just under eight million dollars..

So the next man up award goes to not LeBron not Anthony Davis if they're both healthy, we're talking about who's the next guy to step up for the Lakers that has not a superstar level player. Who do you have that as your next man up tonight? I think you're going to agree with this probably most likely Nationwide. I don't you know trans had a good fourth quarter and you know even West Matthews was good at certain points of the game, but I think if we were going to hand it to one person, I think you'd have to be cous cous started out. I just we love what we've been seeing from Coos lately and we got all of that plus we got off, uh more more scoring out of Clues which obviously we need with the absence of a d and shrewder so I would go. Khus. I'm betting you probably are going to go. Khus but let's go down there with you a hundred percent. I think that this is and I love the games where there's like five guys that we could potentially give it to you. And then we have a little bit of a debate because that means a lot of guys played really well, but now I think it's Gotta Be Kyle kuzma tone night. He was tremendous Kyle kuzma 23 points for boards eight of 21 shooting for of 11 from 3 is not good and his 3-point percentage has ticked down a little bit. He was shooting a career-high fog From 3 for most of the season and now he's dropped slightly below his career-high. So I'd like to see that come up. But other than that, I liked we saw it or Kyle kuzma the night that three-pointer you hit near the beginning of the game towards the end of the shot clock. Oh, wow. Yeah. That was that was Kobe asked right not to compare Kobe and kuzma at the two very different players right different levels. Yeah, but it was that type of a shot. It was kind of shot where you see them shooting you just go. Oh no way. There's no way he's going to make oh my God, he made it right like Kyle kuzma had himself a very nice night tonight for the Lakers so credit to him definitely gets the next man up award. So gotta love that. All right. Let's give away some more lakersnation.com license plate.

"A bit of an overlap. It's kind of like like Boogie cousins and Marcus all are like West Matthews and kcp. It's not the exact same player. There's differences. There's no question. There's differences but their skill-set is more similar than it is different at this point like the difference between Boogie and say a general is Noelle or JaVale or Dwayne or Dwight Howard. One of those guys that the true like Rim protecting centers that that are kind of the lower-tier rim protectors Boogie to those guys is I mean, it's a completely different skill-set completely different style of player. Boogie is a lot closer to a Mark assault-style Player. That's that's what he is right now. But on the Sea Shack DeMarcus Cousins are shooting 38% and that's with me rounding up from the field not from 3 from the field 38% for a center. That's bad. That's bad bad bad 34% from 3, and I will say that about half of his shots right now our threes. So that's probably what's pulling his field goal percentage down, but he is also getting seven points. Yep. Rebounds in just 20 minutes of play. So that is very solid nine point six points defensively the Houston Rockets right now are slightly better with Boogie on the cord actually than off its close. I don't know see. I think the ceiling is high on DeMarcus Cousins, like I look at the skillset. It's not a perfect fit, but is there going to be anybody out there that's better on the market if Andre Drummond gets out there sure you would absolutely take Andre Drummond over DeMarcus Cousins, but we don't know he might just get traded. We don't know if he's going to be on the market. Do you take Blake Griffin over to Marcus cousins? I don't know if I do that and bugging, you know, the you know that he does have the chemistry with the team. I know he got into it a little bit with Markieff Morris from the Lakers played the Rockets earlier this season, but from everything we've heard that was just kind of a game thing and they were cool after the game. Everything was fine. So.

Los Angeles Lakers Scorched By Miami Heat

"Lakers do lose to the Miami Heat. Oh Alex Caruso had a chance to tie it up at the buzzer, but misses the shot was not an easy shot by came up just short gruesome misses and the Lakers do fall to the Miami Heat LeBron. James had a bit off of an off night and we have to remember of course Dennis Shooters still out and not going to miss two more games. They are really struggling to get offense going without him. And of course Anthony Davis out as well and he'll be out for at least the next four weeks or so, which will take him out all the way through a little bit past the old star breaks up the Lakers clearly struggling clearly undermanned and we got a lot to talk about because there's some rumors popping up about what the Lakers might do about it and some people that they dead Try to bring in so a lot to break down joining me tonight. We've got Chris the Masterpiece Masters Chris. How you doing, man? I'm okay disappointing disappointing loss. It was it was a weird game. I know we're going to get into all of it. But you know, there's the world we live in when you don't have off Anthony Davis and then to a compound things you don't have demonstrated or who plays a big role for our team. So 12 plus tonight. Yeah, let's get on here. I think that the schruder think really is it's a big deal. It really is. It's a big deal to not have him out there because of what he brings in terms of the skill set his ability to get into the paint his ability to run the offense. You can just see it when LeBron is not on the floor. I mean, you're you're you're hanging on the edge of the cliff and you're just praying that your drink it doesn't give out and you just tumble over the edge. That's what they're doing right now when LeBron's not on the floor, it's like it's like Frank Vogel is just constantly watching the clock one. Can I put it back in yet? Can I put them back in yet? Because any minute that LeBron is not on the floor the Lakers offense looks dead. Lately lost because they don't have anybody that can really be a threat off the dribble. They can get into the paint and do anything from there. And and so it's a bit of a mess. They're just trying to hold on for dear life reminds me a little of the Lakers bench Squad last year except right now. You don't have Anthony Davis to help claw you back into games either. So it's that's certainly a challenge and Dennis Schroder is going to miss two thousand more games. No, he did test negative for covid-19 will do to contact tracing he is out for two more games. So this is going to be a couple more games where the Lakers have to grind it out without some really key pieces here.

Do Positions Even Matter Anymore?

"Now i'm joined by yahoo serious so he and she wrote this article about draymond green. She wrote an article about the idea. That draymond green is almost a position unto himself that now new players come into the league or filling in so i wanna talk to her about that and i thought it was a fascinating piece because you identified a bunch of guys use value. I think are were only just now starting to understand so before we get into our conversation about like positions and howard thinking about positions in the league across the board. Just tell me a little bit. About what attracted you to this idea in the first place like was there a big bang moment that you were like i think i ll adore is also part of this yet actually was I was watching. I was watching the rockets take on the thunder in the playoffs. And there are a few moments where statement just couldn't close out on pj talker. Who's obviously pointing the five. And then they had to madore at the five and he's six four was already crazy. The pj tucker six five center was starting and that was a response to that. It was a natural response and it was the right response. Underplayed way better with him at the five and they went away from it. Which is i think why they lost the series and it was just kind of interesting to me you know. You didn't have a workers in the playoffs. But stephen adams is being squeezed on both sides. He just can't get away from this thing. That dream on started like on one end. It's we can't defend on the other end like there's there's this young guy who's coming for a spot and he watched even again. We're gonna talk about this later. But if you watch stephen adams now not exactly fitting offense. No i mean. I almost wonder whether or not steven adams was like an enormous tax locker room. Guy like that that he was brought in. Now you can almost make the argument that he's there to give veteran leadership and just like established like a certain culture at the pelicans. Because obviously encore doesn't really work the way. I don't buy that at all veteran leadership. I can these signs of guys and then they're like yeah. That'll that'll play well. They had drew holiday last year. They found jj radic for the past two years. They have veteran leader. Sure especially since. I feel like grip is also read coyotes piece earlier this week. Try to roll bledsoe into that as well as like. No no no you guys go up bledsoe on the back end of that deal. Because that's we got. I see what they were trying to do. Which is like they have like the young guys and then they have like this mix of old guy so that young guys never turned into the wolves and wind up not knowing how like which way is up and all but they're only like a few steps better than the wolves to host stephen adams this much money also the wolves beat down. Yes that's true. How are they really. They made the wolves. Look real smart on offense. Yes which is impossible so wanted to ask you about this idea that i've been thinking about especially as regards to ben simmons which i think has become like a little bit of an obsession of mine this season. But it's like where is he appropriately situated on the court. There's like the physical like. Where does he stand part. And then there is the conceptual like do we think of him as a point guard. Do we think of a four or are we starting to introduce like a certain new kind of lexicon of the way we think about players. Like whether it's the dunker or like a cook cling cappella roller or a guy. Who is you know. There's all sorts of a huge constellation of terms. We use. Is that a better way to think about these guys in does change their value at all. Because i thought like your idea here that the draymond is almost a new position. Now you could look for was fascinating and there's no question to me that it changes the value of the players of one of the things. I noticed while reporting that article was just the fact that once you name something you start seeing it everywhere like tournament use that you see in life all the time and it was. It was pointed to detrimental. These guys because they were doing things in the court and a lot of the people i talked to. Just one of the things to that stuck out was scouts. Were just like you. Just don't don't doubt winning. If the guy has contributed to winning plays this was this was wrong. One of the college scouts said scouted grant williams. So if the guy's making winning plays don't outsmart yourself just because you can't find a way to put it in a box. It's probably something that you don't quite understand yet just because you can't understand it doesn't mean it's not effective in that definitely plays a role with a lot of guys in the league. So yeah tha t to that point a changes your changes your value just because like this league is a lot more because a lot more than i think people realize it. A lot of people are out to win. Press conferences in if you can't quite explain what you're going for with certain player. I think it makes it harder for you to recognize. It also makes it harder for you to sell which matters on every level matters when you're scouting and you're trying to convince your head coach your your gm or somebody else and then for the gm. It's like trying to convince the owner. Then you know that's gonna be that's gonna be defined the depending on the franchise you are. Some of that is going to be defined by the media will perceive a certain selection to Be it's interesting. i think i'm kind of. I'm kind of going to this place whereby my pet theory now watching the heat watching the sixers has become that you can. You're allowed to have if you really smart. And if the other shooters are andrew or really good they can make plays. You're allowed to have two guys. That aren't very good shooting on the court

"Always use a stream you know that's available you know how to say this so you go for twenty five twenty one of thirty it comes out to you know he's the guy that shot he could be over twenty and that's still the guy that you want with the ball in his hands he only had a point as I say he was two of seven from the for it really didn't take a lot of shots but they were comfortable with drawing up a play for him although it dramatics for the rockets because PJ Tucker hit a triple from the corner they gave Houston a two point lead with one point six seconds to go so the rockets think they've got the shot that will be shown all over TV and heard on radio and packaged up on social media is dead Bogdanovich end up stealing the spotlight and the headlights and this is a big deal for the jazz to go into Houston and to grab this way and I don't know when we start talking about fifty endings and looking at them a little more carefully in the NBA probably not until we get past the all star break at the very least however the western conference's got more teams that are contending this year and part of that is because the warriors are out of the picture about every team in the top eight in the west is about five hundred and that includes the Memphis Grizzlies to what a really special night for their rookie job a rant Moran.

Westbrook’s 41 Help Small Ball Rockets Best Lakers

"The other game. I wanted to address COVINGTON. I said made his debut debut. The pocket rocket. So last the Lakers one. twenty-one one eleven so the the first real experiment with the extremely small ball with at least Covington in the mix so far success S. Westbrook at forty one and Bobby Cov- hit two clutch late threes. If fourteen points eight boards really really solid defensive numbers there as well. He's the hit nineteen eighteen threes overall. What did you think from this? Roy Is this. I mean this is fun. We like it because it's unique and it's wild to see and we said the Lakers would be one of those teams like I don't know if they're going to get killed inside well they didn't. I mean the League scored a bunch of points on the paint but on the boards was pretty even and the rockets. Also don't care if you're gonNA score outscored score them in pain 'cause they're like well we're GONNA outscore by thirty from the three point line. which is what they did in this game? It'll be fun to see if this can last. Yeah that's right. They get very impressive win because they came back late and Rub hit one of those threes. Like I think it was. Anthony Davis was right there in his face. He hit it so they win the game. He Hits shutouts working. We'll we need. We need a little bit more of a sample size to really see if it can hold up but good on Russell Westbrook again. I mean man. He's playing the only took two threes last night. One of them he he does seem to have actually been able to real that three point shooting in for this season Because in the past he's gotten sucked into that too shooting away hasn't been a great shooter. You still only shooting. I twenty four percent on the season. So he's realizing that's not my bag baby instead. He's finding otherwise and he's I mean. This is the best Russell. Westbrook broke when he's going inside and taking advantage of matchups where he can use his athleticism speed. So I mean he's he's worked himself into the All Star game two for his play over the last month or so Ah Honestly I believe that because early on it didn't look right and last night. He loves the big stage. He loves the Big Challenge. I love when Ross has it going. And he's feeling it a little bit. He starts barking at everybody at the crowd. It is fun when he's gone. He's feeling that you can see exactly watching this game. You can see exactly why. The rockets made made the trades they did they might have gotten dunked on nineteen times. But they're fun they may nineteen three. So that's an extra nineteen points right there. You GotTa Win The math. Clint Capellas not flipping flipping the math for the rockets. They're going all in on it. I've definitely thought it was hilarious. Seeing the clips from Mike Dantonio pre-game. We might be short. But we're stout James Harden he strong Air Gordon. You can guard begs. PJ Tucker who can guard begs than Anthony Davis one out and was like who cares that you guys are out here dunking every single time it was roast mode but but those are only towns. I think there's a couple of things to remember when you do go super small. Yeah you like you got to play hard all these young small guys. Excuse me sort of got got a box out and like bust their ass. Tucker's incredible and all that I love him. But the other thing you get from playing small is in a forty eight minute game in theory eerie in Syria if the other team are playing their bigs. They're not GONNA be able to sustain that effort over the course of the game and I thought you saw the Lakers look a little more tired as the game went on a little bit. Where the rockets being just the smaller guys more athletic guys are GONNA be able to sustain it in theory a little bit more? That's one thing the other thing though the big benefit over this like five game stretch here where they've gone super small gone pocket rocket they're forcing more turnovers. And that is huge. I mean last night. The rockets scored thirteen points on sixteen laker turnovers. And then the rocks. Okay you flip it while they gave up eleven second chance points on six acres offensive rebounds. But that's still you know. Do the math on that. That's still you're coming up positive. That's a plus too when you're looking at turnover your points and then we're small on the glass but it's okay. Those are the second chance points. And that's been the big difference. They're averaging The other team is like eighteen turnovers per game over this little run here with the Super Bowl small experiments. So that's a big positive and I think just again Covington going to help with that. There's no doubt about that. You know getting deflections and getting these steals lending westbrook go to either then attack or then here comes the you know the the second wave of three point shooters that you've got to try and get a body on Harden Gordon or Tucker in the corner or something like that so that that to me is the obviously too little positives of this going really small. I'm excited to see if it can continue in the regular season injure the playoff series.

NBA 2020 Predictions

"About My tween twenty bold predictions now. This isn't just for the regular season. This is for the off season. This is the beginning of next season to these addiction that I think that potentially could happen. I'm going to say them here today. And maybe you can agree with me some. You may think this crazy in some you might agree with. We'll have to see my first pro. Prediction is that both L. A.. Neither one of the LA teams will not make the Western Conference finals. I think a team will beat them or since the clippers. Don't take care too much about seeding in the Lakers. Stay the number one seed if the clippers land four or five. They'll play the clippers in the second row. They'll play Lakers around. which would men? 'cause obviously semifinals matchup US and other Western Conference finals match. But I also feel like there may be a team that could upset me maybe Houston is probably the most likely that could upset one of the LA teams and. I think that they're going to keep them from making the the the Western Conference finals. I know a lot of people were expecting that to happen. A lot of people are wanting to happen. I'm sure it will be great for the Lee but I really think that that's something in my opinion that I think is going to happen. That's one of my first. Bold predictions of the twenty twenty season in further on my eh prediction is that the Golden State Warriors will form another super team. Now I don't know if there's going to be with Jaanus. It could be a cry towns because Golden State is monitoring situation but Golden State clearly knows. Listen with the way the League is if we want to be on topic how can we need to get an update US another super team together and I think that they're definitely trying very hard to get another another star player in there now. I do like that. Probably means that's the end of Draymond Green. But I think that's what they're aiming for taming to get their aiming to get another star in there to see to come back with clay and to come back with Steph potentially really they can make you trade for star because they if they do get a top three lottery pig. deathly do not be surprised. If they try to make a trade with that pick honestly they honestly could have just picked up an amazing asset for them because they could use that as trade bait in. That's good trait rate. You know maybe the team star is disgruntled. Maybe you never know. I mean this isn't somebody would think about like the sons have another bad year. We'll we'll give you our top pick and another guy. And we want Devon Booker. Obviously Yona how that work I mean you know. They're kind of doing the right now. And the end of the Russell even yeah no. We Really Devon Booker may be a better player Neanderthal Russell. But that's definitely a prediction I think could potentially happen. I think that the warriors warriors will form another super team. But it's not going to be as top heavy instrument of Kevin Durant who like the second best player in the League. That's why think if they got Jaanus it would be stacked because of state Stephan Klay can play like they play and then they completely put a better supporting cast around. Then you could say okay. Yeah this team is going to be very tough to beat. Even laker teams have a team. They may be looking up to but it will have to see because if they get any towns houses. This is a great player but we don't view him as view when Kevin Durant was there which means even though it would be very top heavy west conference. But that's when also and my pro predictions one of my other pro predictions. Are I think that revenue from the C.. BA will increase which will lead to more players undeserving of big major contracts. Getting big major contracts. I'm going to say any names. But it's like okay. Well I'll say this because I don't know if he's GonNa get it but there are people who are sometimes wonder now dre walgreens supposed to be a free agent this offseason offseason Draymond Green. We know he's not a guy who's going to score points we can do live. And he's a great gadget player. I would say but some people wonder. Would somebody pay draymond green the Max would they give draymond green that Max deal. That is something they definitely wonder about and like a question. Like why would you give you Max. If if there's more money to be spent draymond green could potentially ask for Max and if you like laundry a month you might give them close to it. I mean we already have players now. who try to sign that? First Max deal then take a shorter deal. Just didn't end up getting of that. Ten Year supermax dill. But you know it's one of those those things where I think that this will lead to more players being signed overpaid and I mean you obviously can see more cat room. It can lead the teams being in very weird financial situations with cap every team six Performing up to expectation and then you played a lot of guys a lot of money who may have never actually deserve the money in the first place so. I think that that's going to be something that's going to be interesting another addiction I have is. I think that James Harden will make it to the NBA Finals Cheer. I know that's pretty big. That basically means you're saying he's GonNa beat one or both La Teams. I think James Harden. This would be the best year for him to do it. I think right now this I flew. This is his best year do it. So I'M GONNA go ahead mcnabb. Oh predicts names hard. It's GonNa make the finals. These the rockets are GonNa make the finals. This may be shocking to you. But that's how I feel. I feel like that. Jr potentially do it. I feel like if he was able to average at least thirty in the playoffs and Russell could give him about twenty twenty three. That's fifty three between the two players and they have some good supporting cast. You can't forget about. PJ Tucker can't forget about Erik. Gordon Clink Appel. You definitely feel like they have all the potential attention in the world so potentially be a top team and so I would not be surprised if they end up being the top team they think they can be and making it to the NBA NBA finals. This year in basically just creating just such a great agree moment for the city Houston also another prediction. I think Diane if he comes back as soon as they say he come back. We'll still win rookie of the year. I think Zaylon has all the talents. Be A star of Zion. Comes back in balls out in just twenty points a game in gives you a lot of highlight plays. I think he will be able to squeeze out winning rookie year only only playing half of the year again. That's a pretty bold prediction but as I've anybody can do a Zairean can all takes his cause. Remember even the Luca one owned by a lot last year. You trae young exciting second half which made it interesting and don't be. We don't feel like John Moran is doing with Luca Danni last year so it's not as far fetched is not as it's not like oh it's completely impossible for Luca played so well and then trae young play well in the New Year but he's still play. Okay well it's like John Mirant is playing. Maybe the best right now. But he's not playing at local level from last year so of Zion can have maybe a trae young like surge in the second half of the season. I think he'll go ahead and win the rookie year. But it all depends on when he gets back. 'cause I do if he didn't get back to maybe mid February with that he wouldn't. It's only two months left in the season. At that point. He has to probably get back to move in the next two weeks and then just start going on a tear from game one because dial is full practice recently so he's clearly about to get there. Obviously you've seen him take jumpers you've seen him dunk Donc so I definitely things I on can win the rookie year if he gets back in time and my last bowl prediction is that the Atlanta Hawks will add a star player. This off season. I don't know who but I feel. They're gonNA add some but I feel like some of the issues they've had I flipped. They're going to add a star. Because I feel like you need to especially to make trae WANNA stay there because rotations rumblings that he might and I wanna stay. That may be something that you may want to do. If Your Hawks Front office you need to add some talent in their yep some good young talent but you're going to you know how it is as league view in a win you're gonNA have to give up that good young talent for solidified star. Obviously I feel like trays untouchable. But maybe Kevin Heard. Or maybe you D Andre One hundred maybe a cam reddish maybe push them shelby John Collins and I think they're gonNA make a trade for a proven star in this league and we'll have to see whoever that star is how far the Atlanta Hawks may potentially get because of it but that's it for me thank you for listening listening to the GMC football basketball podcast on the GMC podcast network.
