NBA Now On Chat Sports – Free Agency Latest (July 9th)



hello folks and welcome into NBA now I am Tom that is Jimmy NBA free agency is still technically going but there aren't very many players left now with that in mind we're gonna take a look at the top available three agents the players who could still in theory help out a team well before we get to our top ten some other notable players out there for the most part the old guys yeah basically look Vince Carter I still think he's a service we'll bet serviceable back up it for some teams for a contender he had some good moments for the ballot in Toronto for one more year yeah go do something we want to see Vince Carter win if you're an NBA fan Pau Gasol coming off an injury he still wants to play again Jonathan Simmons is kind of fizzling out at this point Jamal Crawford look he finished the season with a fifty five point game and he can still be a good six-man and then there's there's one more guy in the list that I'm baaaack all right guys everyone do it you're already doing it shout out cortex and the Jewish man and Tyler and swell Z and Michael they oh they all had Zaza him before he brought this up Chris Jones that at Connor knee Diego Gonzales Tommy H Dennis did it you're triggered by the phrase Aza yeah you can you can say that not a big jaws op look at all these Zaza's flowing in I absolutely love it right now so so more shoutouts here Billy Jefferson Tripp Hawk Hawk Trev has it in there Tommy H Nathan Coyle after high school show has won in there as well Dennis has it let's see Connor Rodrigo thank you all for everything Zaza I love patrol and Jimmy here on the show you sure do now again there are still some players who really would have made our top 10 probably yeah but they aren't technically free agents yet Dwight Howard it with dala JR Smith Courtney Lee those guys will probably get bought out or waived or stretched waived but for now they are listed on the potential buy outside not one of the top ten free agents out there yeah not yet but if they were I mean Dwight Howard would probably still be pretty high on this list he would be high all the issues that he comes with it'll be different this year I swear okay and Iguodala would also be really high up there Junior Smith it would probably crack toxin all these guys probably what I think at this point maybe not God av maybe maybe leave Courtney Lee off that off that list but might be better than our number 10 guy let's dive into our number 10 that is Sam Dekker look it it's it's a bad group yeah pretty rough he's kind of an undersized stretch for in terms of like size and body mass there can play some defense but if you're stretched for part of that is stretching and shooting and that's not really an area that Dekker is great at just over 30 percent from deep last year that doesn't fit no not at all young though it could get better and that's the thing you kind of hold out hope that he does kind of improve it kind of stinks that the two wisconsin kids Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker just have not panned out whatsoever they played together with that team who was the kid that came out this year and literally can't shoot a big guy oh I know who you're talking about cuz he didn't draft shoot he was he was post unsigned free agent undrafted free agent but even app even an app that's it but yeah Sam Dekker he he just doesn't really fit today's NBA which you need out of your forwards all right folks I will make note today's July 9th apparently it is cow appreciation dick yeah so if you watch some of our live free agency during the midst of all the chaos before Kauai sign I don't remember who started it but someone just threw in cow and then everyone was typing in cow for that day it wouldn't stop today is cow free she Asian day so type in cow we can appreciate all the cows everywhere go get yourself dress up like a cow get yourself some free chick go a fake or do that yeah maybe drink a cold glass of milk whatever whatever you want to do to appreciate cows today you do all kinds of cows people also throwing in Moo we appreciate it here let's go to number nine then Carmelo Anthony Jimmy there he is it pained me to put him on this top-10 list i I mean look this third point is the most perfect point to sum up what Carmelo Anthony is he's inefficient he's old he's out of shape and he can't play defense that's that that's it I mean he can still be a high-volume scorer on 20 25 shots maybe if he can accept his role off the bench but Melo is just he's number 9 for a reason and you can argue he shouldn't even be on this list but I should be on it you can argue that he shouldn't he's definitely one of the top 350 players in the NBA so in theory he is worthy of a roster spot the problem becomes what that bullet point was right Melo doesn't play defense he's not a great three-point shooter anymore there were clearly locker room issues for him with Houston lasted 10 games last year like that's a pretty big pretty clear sign there so people are already doing it good baller or scrub mostly ballers put their arse Mizzou I've seen a lot of scrubs roll yeah ballers started then and all became the scrubs there hey do you guys know if you've watched chat sports for more than you know a day you know that I think he's absolutely a scrub because that's what he is so 5.0 says he can still be both of you one on one stop being such a I'm not comparing Melo to myself there are like a probably 2 million plus people 2 billion plus people in the world that are better at basketball than me I'm comparing Carmelo Anthony to the rest of the NBA compared to the rest the NBA Melo is a scrub I just think you're a hater planet simple maybe I am it also scrub through fence in number 8 Trey Lyles the Nuggets rescinded his qualifying offer after they made their deal for Jeremy grant he's not a good shooter but if you needed like a backup big he was kind of more of that 5'4 hybrid I think that makes sense so for Lyles I don't think he's gonna be a key addition here he's not gonna be a starter and he's not the guy I think that you saw I never thought they were drafting but worthwhile pick up yeah I mean when you talk did draft him he was supposed to be kind of this stretch for he started out that way 38% from three in his rookie season and then it just continued to decline and with that decline kind of be you know you got pushed out of the rotation he's kind of soft he's not gonna be able to defend the bigger big men down low he regrets this past year where he really did 30 plus 35 percent plus three points yeah that's kind of been closer to his career averages which is more like 33 ish and then 25% from deep this past year he ain't gonna get that done but look at 23 years old I think he's worth taking a risk on taking a flyer on him go back to back Tracy or Trey Burke up next and under Scott undersize score first point guard which makes sense for the bench but with a an overabundance of point guards out there already it's kind of tricky to find a spot for Trey Burke yeah again another guy that's still just 26 I mean he's 26 years old he's still super young he came out of Michigan was supposed to meet his potential he never really did that but as like a backup point guard he's pretty solid I think if you need a guy just come in and give you some quick buckets off the bench that's what Trey Burke will do dude well enough as well he's a good enough three-point shooter but getting into that mid-range and finishing from around there has kind of been his sweet spot and then you know defense you can't really ask him play defense yeah and he's not a great distributor it's kind of like he's a point guard off the bench that needs a better distributor he's shooting guard and a point guards body exists kind of that that is unfortunate fit therefore Trey Berg all right folks if you're watching right now and you haven't already make sure you are subscribed get us to a hundred and thirty K that's the number we're up over 126 now approaching 127 130 is the big next number there so if you're watching on YouTube the link is there youtube.com slash at sports TV but you're also watching on youtube so just hit the big red button then pretty simple just subscribe there we appreciate it all very much so make sure you are subscribed let's move then to Lance Stephenson number six so the oldest twenty eight year old in the NBA was the joke we made before he went it feels like he feels like he's been around forever and he's only 28 but like he's kind of one of those you put him out there and he just does everything for you you can grab a rebound he can push the transition he can score the ball in different ways but he's not the Lance Stephenson from the Indiana Pacers which was still blowing in people's ears that he can do that he is very good at he's good at being a pest good defender I think off the bench he's still a good option for a team it's just are you willing to take the risk on him with all of his quirks and chemistry sort of a crazy person but yeah she shoots good enough he plays good enough defense can rebound good enough and pass good enough there but everyone knows what Lance Stephenson is like yes he's Lance I don't really know what other way to describe it any fun I think you know again this is another guy I would take a flier on if I were a team looking for a backup three maybe a two but then he's kind of stuck in that role he can't I think they thought Indiana thought he could become a point guard at some point and he did never become that he's that to guard maybe a small forward all right so which would you guys rather watch the NBA Summer League or the MLB all-star game that's tonight the all-star game it is tonight last night was the home run derby didn't watch any that's what I watched it I the NBA Summer League because I enjoy the summer league a lot and a lot more than the MLB all-star game which I forgot was even this weekend maybe I'll put on the the all-star game tonight like on my laptop live play video games just have it in the background cuz it goes on for about six and half hours yeah let's see I see some MLB votes but for the most part here and this may surprise you the NBA show is voting for the summer league that yeah that's quite shuffle figure I keep those votes flowing sir Malik has at number five Jeremy Lin Lin sanity is dead sure but Jeremy Lin's not bring him back I want him to have some kind of role on some kind of NBA team I don't know where he's gonna go he was better for the Hawks than he was for the Raptors he played more he played the eight blade that he also played for the the Hornets which people forget even spent time there huh well when he was there he actually was pretty productive its injuries have kind of held him back and in playing time in Toronto's what really held him back who's better Jeremy Lin or scary Terry it's scary but Jeremy Lin had the better peek and the shooting though yeah it's not pretty point shooting again NBA teams and me especially they are so focused on the three-point shooting there and Lin's daily been a better three-point shooter other points in his NBA career but that drop off this year was a pretty big red flag plus the injury history in the past also there yeah I think the injuries is what scares teams away the most now because look when he once he got to Brooklyn New York excuse me and he played someone Houston he was playing really consistently and then it just continued to trickle down and trickle down and trickle down the heat would need to clear up a couple roster spots and save money how about Lin as a fit there as a backup point guard yeah if they don't end up landing Russell Westbrook even they do Andres or maybe if they do yeah and they getting they dumped grande rugged somewhere else I like Lin as a backup for a team if you I'm healthy I think he can still provide valuable minutes that's what that said number four Justin holiday he does offer some three indie play he does this is actually a guy that I think I'm a little higher on than you might be Tom I would like but I let you put him up there hi yeah I like Justin holiday I think he's a really good defender and a reliable scorer he's also got long arms and he can finish around the rim which that explained everything it makes him sound like the best NBA player in the world but he does have some good minutes in him Memphis utilized him just enough but I think a real contender could actually use him even better I like him look the numbers are maybe a bit inflated because Memphis was not good last year but ten points four rebounds offers quality defense and can shoot I am a little surprised there hasn't been more interest around holiday yeah maybe I don't know what it might be maybe holiday thinks he's gonna get a bigger contract than he is I think he's more of a mid-level slash you know minimum kind of guy I think he can get more than minute the minimum but at least I think he could at least get a mid-level in the NBA all right so who would you rather sign type age for holiday elf for Lin I think originally we had Lin above it and then we're kind of like actually you know what let's go with holiday so both our votes are for H yeah I'm taking Justin holiday just for his versatility as opposed to Jeremy Lin just playing that point guard role NIC Tracy says age 7 Adam says age Billy says age mr. robot says Zaza there are some L votes flowing in but I think the H is definitely have it here on that front let's go that's it number three Kenneth Faried who really did Jimmy have a major bounce-back here for Houston Kenneth Faried when he was at Denver was like one of my favorite players yeah he had some monster games and monster year I liked him why he's a high energy big but then fell off when he went to Brooklyn cuz they didn't play him they didn't want to play him and then he got traded and then he got bought out and then e1 to Houston and like you said had a good bounce-back year he's a big part of what they tried to do in the NBA playoffs as a bench guy yeah near the end that previous year and for a good portion before he went to Houston I kind of thought he was done yeah I just don't think he had any more but then he went back to Houston only in tight with his time in Houston he actually averaged almost 13 points per game and eight rebound so again if you need that high energy big like you described to the kind of that 5'4 guy Freed's makes a lot of senses yeah and look under sighs yeah it's six foot eight so I think that's kind of what bouncing out because a bench big yeah I mean if you're if you're undersized and you can't shoot the three which four eats made ten into his entire career then you're not gonna stick around the leak nowadays but furry doesn't back up you know sign me up I think you'd be good for a team we'll see where he ends up I have folks we have a giveaway for you from

Jersey like that I just want the onset of comfo on the back of back of my knees alright folks again that is chat sports comm slash NBA now promo code is chat NBA then email promo at chat sports.com move vincent number to kyle korver recently waived by the suns that was not a surprise there's going to be interest in him because if you think i can just shoot corner threes kyle korver is your dude yeah i don't think he's gonna be on the open market very long because shooting isn't valuable in this league and it doesn't decline with his age i mean the older he gets i mean he still got a great shot doesn't matter if you just put him in the corner he's gonna knock down a three-pointer I did that for Utah got sent to Memphis and got sent to Phoenix then got bought out or waived excuse me and now we'll see where ends up definitely going to end up with a contender though shout out whoever it was that asked us how many more times Korver would be trading we're like now either we think he's done I'll just get bought out and then like two days later got traded to the Phoenix Suns there which we were wrong what are you gonna do where do you think Korver ends up here I've had him penciled in as a Lakers backup for so long now but they have a lot of guards actually they do and they just signed KCPD back they're kind of filling up I like the box I that's one of the teams that's actually looking at them and makes a lot of sense to me think the Sixers as a fit those are the three I mean those are the three teams and I uh I think I think he ends up with the Lakers but I want to seem go to the Milwaukee let's move that's in number one that is Kelly Oubre jr. who I think pretty clearly is the best region left out there it's a huge drop-off after Kelly Oubre I think this guy's gonna get actually a good contract not just a mid-level not just a minimum kind of thing I think he thought he was gonna get more than he has on the open market and that's why he's staying on the market right now I don't know what he's gonna fetch for the rest he is a restricted free agent here's the problem for obray there's nobody else out there with money right now Dallas Dallas is it kind of like it and I think Dallas would like a player like uber eight but he doesn't really fit Rick Carlisle style you know whether it's his attitude and just the fact that he can't really shoot all that well I mean 32% from three is respectable but it's not that's what holds him back though from being a true full on three and D player but 15 points a game played well for the Suns the sun's offseason maneuvering I think has been to sign Ricky Rubio and maintain the cap hold for uber so they can go over the cap to reassign him or match any offer sheet that he ends up getting out there and if that's the case I think that makes sense makes sense for Phoenix in the end I think uber eight ends up back there but I think it might be just at the qualifying offer when he says you know what next year it's a bad frame to class let's try again as a true as a true unrestricted I think you might be onto something there I like that all right so we had over eight number one but folks let us know in the comments section who do you think is the best unsigned free agent let us know if it's not a Bray is it Korver for you then that's why of course that's why we had it too but that's who I have it to but I don't know how long he stays there because there's other guys that are about to get bought out that I think take over that buy out guys who is it for you biggie I I'm gonna say Dwight Howard okay here they're from Jimmy folks let us know what you guys think in the comments section let's move into some more live Q&A use hashtag NBA that makes it a lot easier for producer Harrison to actually find them and bring them up on screen so again hashtag NBA is the key here we'll start off with fook well LeBron win another championship I I think he wins at least two more before he retires that's why I would say I think the under on – I'll go with one oh I think he's got one more in him I think it's gonna be a battle between the Lakers and Clippers – I for the next four is that awesome potentially all right you old Aman says Korver to the Lakers that was our prediction my prediction it's not where I want him to go I'd rather see him go to Milwaukee but I think he ends up in LA all right Cassandra litter says who's gonna win the west Clippers I got Clippers – hey sorry Lakers fans who remain big mad at me it's inevitable hitter at what going down if the Lakers aren't even second they might not even be third West is loaded sorry like fans I backed it wants to know where the bowls end up next season make sure you're subscribed my friend cuz we posted our Eastern Conference playoff projections that's coming up the way they're coming up tonight that's coming out tonight yeah I forgot about that so stay tuned for that that comes out tonight we got we filmed it yesterday on our live show VOD comes out tomorrow so there you go Cameron H wants it tonight thank god this is not a cut and it's only for this camera H Westbrook to the heat that's like the only viable option it's looking like right there I think that's that's the most likely yeah all right Tyler wants to know if the white how it is a good fit for the Warriors oh I forgot about the Warriors this year it'll be different guys this is the year no they just got Kevon Looney they just got Willie cauley-stein there's no need I mean unless for some reason they just really impress him or he really impresses them I don't think so Benjamin Robin wants to know where junior Smith will end up I'm gonna say the Clippers if it well let's see if they filled up all the roster spots I think they might have like one more but it's the Lakers I know rich Paul baby I said watch Italy that's what happens I just want to stay away from Ella the Lakers one more time all right 7 Adam yeah blazars still have to free roster spots who should they get that's a good question they lost shooting with Seth Curry they have it really added a whole lot of shooting in this offices on his back I kind of look for a defensive wing type if you can actually find that guys you lost Aminu and that was a good one Lance do they want I don't think Lance fits Portland Melo nope uh Melo I like I like Korver in Portland I don't think it'll happen but I would like Korver in Portland I think that give use a backup point court how about Lin or Burke ooh I like Trey Burke yeah I like Tripp well Anthony Simon's that's who they want to be I don't know I don't know what Portland wants with those two rods responses the biggest questions all right Rick Drex who do you think will be the MVP kind of like Curry's chances actually I like Curry's chances but I'm taking me honest I think Yanis will shoot like 33 percent from three and just be great alright folks it is Taco Tuesday so what is your favorite taco you can't say the taco that I know you're thinking of right now but we will talk about tacos on Tuesdays only chewy or not chewy side Torchy's tacos trailer park trashy well what do you put in your taco because breakfast taco is also fantastic by the way they are good I mean at torchie's that the trailer park is like lightly breaded chicken and then they have this like spicy ranch sauce and then queso and rice and beans on the side and a little bit of Street corn oh I'm hungry now we can watch yeah all right Marvin Lee says does oh hold on does Dwight Howard comes the Dallas oh lord have mercy I don't know what in caps-lock I will scream your question I don't know what was more annoying the fact that it was in caps lock the fact that you yelled it or the fact that this is actually a question because no he doesn't come to Dallas not it's not even considered alright amoebic mad about Dwight Howard Dallas questions by the way so keep those coming all right yeah but it's the no I know oh come on if the Spurs make the playoff this season no team will ever break their record it is pretty insane how long they've been away often time what's the what's the 96 to 97 no it was the first year when Pavich took over as the interim they didn't make it that year and they've not made they haven't missed it since then that's the question all right Jeremy Anderson wants to know about Jamal Crawford to the Lakers um I don't think Jamal Crawford is that type of player like I think he wants to go somewhere where he can just bawl like he just play and I don't know where that'll be yeah get some more questions here ran man two to one who has the better chance to make the playoffs the kings or the pelicans first of all I don't think either of them make the NBA playoffs but if there is a better chance I got to give it to the king I'm going Kings to here because they were closer last year and I love that with the pelicans have done this offseason but it's not enough I like that last question that avoiding his own criticisms here like a loser dougie Jones will Amari take a vet minimum with the Knicks uh no they already cite three power forwards I think that that Dougie here once Amari wants to go to a winner yeah like chambers there alright folks use hash tag rust to get your questions about Russell Westbrook on the show we will get to those here we'll do a full giant Russell Westbrook you a so use hashtag rust to get those questions on the show but first almost something different coming up here all right folks once again I am Tom Downey that is Jimmy Crowder let's take a look here at the most overpaid players in the NBA feel free to send all of your hate to me on Twitter at what going down e I promise to engage and not just be a smartass I'm gonna be a smartass there in the end so first up some dishonorable mentions Gordon Hayward it was not the same guy last year I mean look they paid him they pay to Utah Jazz Gordon Hayward and he suffered a bad injury it's not his fault he's just not worth thirty three million dollars anymore maybe he works back up to it but I don't think so I will make note here there is no Terry Rozier I push for him I was outvoted by producer Harrison and my co-host here Jimmy Kent Bazemore is on there at least for now Jiang mean he me Solomon Hill let's move out to number 10 on our list that's Evan Turner has one year at just under 19 million left which Evan Turner is a fine player but ain't no universe in which Evan Turner is worth an almost 19 million per year no especially considering the fact that he's not a 3-point shooter he's this point forward yes can't shoot and he's kind of slow and he can't really defend that well I don't know 19 million dollars now he's with this I mean come on come on brutal you know now he's with the Atlanta Hawks where I guess he's playing that Mac up point guard position he's just not worth that much money anymore I mean I think there was a what was he the number two overall pick one time yeah yeah not worth the Turner of course was flipped for Kent Bazemore who made our or made our dishonorable mentions list all right let's stick with the Hawks here a common theme on this one Eastern Cummings a lot of bad contracts Otis yeah Allen Crabbe one year eighteen point five million the Hawks took him on as a literal salary dump from Brooklyn yeah look he was a victim of that 2015-2016 offseason not a victim a beneficiary yeah I guess I should say that of getting overpaid you know because he was restricted at the time and the Brooklyn Nets had to pay up and they did and they got him away he's a good three-point shooter still but he doesn't play anymore he played 43 games last season under 10 points and under 38% three-point shooting is fine but that's like you know five ish maybe up to ten max million per year not approaching that twenty million dollar figure all right folks different kind of question here for you we had to veto Mitch's Krabs joke better flavor of milk type C for chocolate s for strawberry it's such an obvious answer but Tom doesn't know what the right answer is it's chocolate I had if you take different I am fully aware of the fact that like 90 percent 85% of the votes here are going to be for chocolate I I I respect the fact the C's are winning I know I'm in the minority I don't like chocolate milk all that much so I'll go with strawberry well okay you're wrong strawberry flavored water fun fact okay energy back well like strawberry more than chocolate I know I'm weird I know I know scroll boys schoolboy agrees with you he's touched strawberry I think he's the only one typing yes right just typing it over and over again pone star 2 4 8 says don't be gross stop yeah let's move that's in number 8 we are 3 for 3 by the way of the most overpaid players have all been treated this offseason that's Hassan Whiteside at number eight one year 27 million for a player who wasn't happy with the Heat last year and has some major attitude problems there was a time in which he was definitely worth this contract oh he was one of the best room protectors in the league he was pulling down double-digit rebounds every single night he doesn't I mean he still does the rebounding he still kind of protects the rim but he averaged a double-double but like inefficient double-double efficient double-double and he's that he was last year frankly a bit of a cancer yeah I mean the chemistry issues on and off the court or a big problem complaining about not getting playing time when really BAM Adebayo deserves his time percent I mean he's in Portland now I think he knows his role is gonna be behind use of Newark it or until Newark coach returns maybe even starting for a little while but he's not the player he was when he got paid that contract so that's why he's overpaid now let's move Benson number 7 that is Chris Paul who again this is just for this upcoming season most overpaid players but three years left on his deal 124 point 1 million that's a lot for a player who is I think very clearly on the decline I mean yeah like he can't defend anybody in this in this league now he's under sized played 58 games last season and only played 58 games this season before that reserve problem Andrews are an issue and again it's not his fault that he's hurt but it still factors into the fact that he's overpaid and you know now he's a guy that needs to ball in his hands but so does James Harden maybe if they go make her move for Russell Westbrook he that's three ball handlers like that need the ball in their hands to succeed and Chris Paul just doesn't really fit it it's a big issue when the tied for second highest paid player in the NBA puts up fifteen and eight that's not bad by any means yeah like if Chris Paul was on a contract worth half of that he wouldn't be close to to this list right right but only Steph Curry makes more money per year than Chris Paul does Russell Westbrook is try it is tied at that figure there so what will Houston do with cp3 time T for trade K for keep I think for this upcoming year he's I think they keep them because I have to not because they want to they're gonna try to trade them they're gonna look every look everywhere to dump his salary I still think they're gonna be able to get it done unless know what you guys spoke there think there wow shareable there type T for trade K for keep the caves I think haven't here in the chat is okay yeah I think you're right let's move that to number six Bismack Biyombo one-year seventeen million and he makes like no impact on this for the morning four point four points per game as literally eight he got overpaid cuz he had a great run with the Toronto Raptors like he looked like one of the best centers in the league a high-energy guy off the bench and he hasn't been that since then you know he got drafted I believe by the Hornets and then went to Toronto and the way back to the Hornets they hoped he could be what they drafted him for and he hasn't been at all I'm you are paying seventeen million for this that that's it and fifty thousand arable fifty-three total games he actually played in like he doesn't play he's either hurt or they just don't play them so seventeen million dollars is absolutely ridiculous there is no justification for the money that Bismack Biyombo is getting at this point his career-high for reference he is among the top 15 highest-paid centers in the NBA he makes more than Clint capela does who else is on that list below um that's uh Valanciunas makes less although that's that because he signed a pretty cheap dealership Newark kitchen Brook Lopez DeAndre Jordan and then of course all the young players right tsubasa eight and all those Flex players there so that's a lot of money to pay for a not even a good backup setter Nadia Batson same number five Andrew Wiggins a four-year hundred and twenty two million dollar deal was paid on the potential has not reached it yet no I mean nowhere close he he was paid in like the like from what I heard the off C or the the front office was like hey Wiggins if you promise to work really really hard we're gonna go ahead and give you this huge contract and so that you can live up to your potential he's like yeah just give me five years hundreds whatever a million dollars I'll make it happen he hasn't eighth among small forwards he's making about twenty seven point five is up coming soon there that's a head of guys like Boyan Bogdanovich you just got paid right right yeah look it's rough he's not what he's supposed to be I mean look his numbers look great like all the paper in points again oh that that's great but it's not efficient none of its efficient he doesn't play defense he's lazy and his body like he can't play he just can't play defense against bigger guys cuz he's so skinny everyone says trade Wiggins in the comments I mean if they can dump him that'd be great I think a change of scenery would do him well I do think he went somewhere else he could be a really productive player but that's it number four another small Ford who makes more than Andrew or makes lesson Wiggins just barely here that is Otto Porter he's not a bad player and I'm my finisher thought when I saw this one like I think Otto Porter is too high on this list and then we went and looked at the numbers more in depth there you know shoot well from three but you're gonna pay 27 + million for 14 points per game yeah I mean it's rough look at and they traded for him obviously the Chicago Bulls did and now I think they're kind of stuck with them I still think he could probably start on a lot of teams I do think he's a starting caliber player that's not the question here the question is is he worth his contract and the answer is absolutely not it's not who is the better player it's who's getting paid too much you know and that's Otto Porter's problem he's getting paid more to be a thirteen point nine point four game score right it's not work there's a debate raging right now in the comment section that says Porter or or Andrew whose you rather have on your team with their contracts included of course I think I oh man cuz Porter only has two years left that's a factor uh but I think Wiggins potential if he traded team but if it's just for one season Wiggins I'd take Wiggins I think I think he can still be guy still believe in his potential alright folks make sure you are subscribed to your Guinness to a hundred and thirty K and look at these votes you're flowing in people are much thinking Porter but there are some Wiggins votes there so yeah maybe we're in disagreement with the consensus there but make sure you are subscribed you're watching on youtube right now over a thousand watching I know not everyone watching is subscribe so hit us up with that subscription button we'd appreciate that bear it is that hundred and thirty K market number three though pains me dearly because I love John Wall but here's the reality oh man seventy three games the past two seasons tore his Achilles for a player that heavily relies on athleticism probably gonna miss all this upcoming season and now he's on a four-year 171 million dollar deal I don't know if you saw a picture but there's a picture though the Wizards recently posted and it was of him working out and he's gotten like pretty jacked like he's putting on muscle but if you're a guy that is reliant on explosiveness and you just tore your Achilles you don't want to put on muscle like that's the last thing you wanna do you want to continue to save you know trim and then that's not what he's doing so he's probably out for this whole next season for the injury John Wall isn't close to this list not even know don't know we're near him because he's a great player I mean one of the best point guards in the league if he's healthy but coming back from an Achilles injury almost never brings you back to what you were and you're paying him for the next four years and now you've got him counting 38 million when he's probably not gonna play this year at least I mean he could be out even long that's rough that is top for money for point guards there and who knows what he's gonna look like coming off that Achilles injury alright folks we've got a giveaway for you from our friends over at my bookie chat sports.com

calm move then said number two I think a very clear number two by the way Nick Batum two years 52.7 was once a pretty good player now just wildly overpaid I think these these top two and then everybody else is a huge drop-off I agree I mean John wall's is pretty close because of the injury but based on play and contract these top two were pretty obvious Nick Batum is just I mean there's one time where he was he was never worth this contract and all I want to see I don't think close his tomb he was close to it but he's always em he's been overpaid since he got this deal and you can see why with the numbers I mean it's not good he makes more than Victor Oladipo makes yeah Gary Harris makes yeah then JJ reddick makes there all kinds of guards and wings there that make less than Nick Batum 25 million 25.5 were painted this year for less than 10 points a game it's bad it's like he's a great defender time to make up for it either you know no and he's still got two years left so you're still paying him for like this year and next year if you can't figure out a way dumped him I think he has a player option on that second year and obviously he's gonna pick it up because he's not gonna make anywhere close to that money here in a couple years and so Hornets have several players on this list here so who is the worst owner governor governor in the NBA yes Jordan has given us pretty bad deal it looks like Michael Jordan right now but I don't know it's not it's not him but if we're basing it off of this game stolen its James Dolan pretty I quit right now don't sell the team the team make the Knicks average again fired all the team yeah let us know the comment section there I see Dolan people putting in LeBron which is pretty funny New York Knicks which is that Shane's Dolan's burner account says me absolute the correct answer there is James Dolan number one though the worst contracts for this season by far at least until gets bought out Chandler Parsons one year 25 million that has been the worst contract for like two years in a row three three years in a row he's played a total of 95 games in three seasons combined like that's that's horrible guys remember there's 82 games in an NBA season so that's just math that I mean that's just math that's all it is right there quick math but dude Parsons can't say healthy as knees or are the biggest issue there was a one time where he was a really good player there was at one point where he was you know it could be a small forward he can he can handle the ball he was a power forward at the same time at six foot ten and then the issues clicked kicked in and everything fell apart for Chandler Parsons he is the forty fifth highest player in the NBA here which in theory and of course we're key contracts kind of skew this but that means he should be one of the set like the second-best player on a team or at least the third best I mean a top 50 guy in the NBA I shouldn't play never he's never on the court when he does play he's not even that great there John says the best three times the worst contract of the year it's a no-brainer here Parsons is the worst contract the ha have three of our top ten yeah Parsons Turner and Crabb the good news is they traded for all of them because they're an asset acquisition mode which is yeah absolutely i mean i mean this is what brooklyn did and it obviously worked for brooklyn they got back to the playoffs pretty quickly after all that stuff so that's what Atlanta's going for and and you know Chandler Parsons isn't gonna be there next season I don't imagine he won't will be but Turner and Crabb actually will probably still stick around on the roster so we had Parsons number one we would hear from you guys to who is the most overpaid player in the NBA let us know in the comment sections I think Parsons though wins it just clearly he absolutely should be who would you say has been the most overpaid this offseason Terry Rozier pretty what are on this list what I always I couldn't do it almost had him on this list and I we had to leave them on the Brennan ater says a wall but there are Parsons and some Chris Paul votes coming in someone says Dario Sark's like first and rookie contracts on a very cheap contract there but let us know what you guys think in the comments section all right folks it is time for our Russell Westbrook Q&A everyone's act isn't about everyone's talking about them because everyone wants to know what happens there so this little QA dedicated all late to Russell Westbrook so make sure you use hashtag Russ to get it up here on screen makes it a lot easier for producer Harrison to find all these comments that are flowing in use hashtag Russ first up from Antonio Russ and Korver on the Golden State Warriors throw handling Russell Westbrook and Golden State would be a nightmare a nightmare like you literally would have to make curry into a spot of shooter and what D'Angela Russell just becomes the most irrelevant player in the NBA this small three guards lineup that would be so miserably bad now Korver sure maybe but Korver is not going to Golden State all right shrimp hawk Hawks Rev what do you think the Rockets need to do to get Russ and do you like Zaza Hawkins and Zaza milk what in the world is going on I love you guys never change um you you threw together a rocket straight hit I don't with it they're pretty closer you have to do Clinton if you if you're clean if you're keeping Chris Paul Thunder want that contract so I assume they're not gonna take any deal involving Chris Paulus it's maybe if you throw in like a first-round pick so it doesn't make sense I think in the effort Rockets its capella Gordon and then salary cap filler here in terms of Isaiah hearten scene and like a Gary Clark that makes it work there plus I assume maybe a draft pick as well all right magic Brown better career Russ or cp3 ooh that's a good question because I mean Russ still has a little bit of ways to go I still have stuff to do I think I'm gonna go thrust I think I'm gonna go Russ also you wanted an MVP he's been to an NBA Finals like Russ has never done that or a Chris Paul has never done that I think I anchor espalda triple-double I mean Russell Wow I'm getting too mixed up Russell Westbrook throw triple doubles like in the efficient years was incredible I take R Us over Chris Paul you know nine times out of ten all right cool back again says will rush averaged a triple-double again he's done it back-to-back years back to back it was back to back years um I think it depends on where he ends up but I think he will I think it'll just be a little less points per game and then pretty equal rebounds and assists possibly all right Isaiah Bob says Russ to Toronto for Pascal Sayaka Oh interesting because this is coming from a Raptors fan cuz the Raptors did not want to include siakam in a deal for Russell Westbrook I'm checking the numbers here um they still shocked I'm so cheap you still have to include Kyle Lowry I've the Thunder do that yeah I think honestly though I think Toronto said says no I think Toronto says no as well but I I think it could be interesting now let's say they do get Russ then what else you have yeah you don't have me you have Martin soul and Serge Ibaka alright will Fisher any chance that the Pistons get Russ I think they do make sense there I think that that that's a good fit in terms of of the Pistons and Tony Snell Reggie Jackson if they want to wait two months maybe we can throw in like from in to really make the money work right now I think the Pistons could could pull it off I think they could I think Doom booyah still unsigned so if they wanted to throw him in and give them a nice young piece you pair up to Oklahoma guys Russ and Blake Griffin and then go Andre Drummond in the middle it's a competitive team in the Eastern Conference all right dougie Jones what if he just stays we've never seen a full season of just Russ haven't we though like when Oladipo was there it was basically just Russ like Oladipo was not the Oladipo he is this season it didn't work out that well if he stays then it's just awkward like then it's like okay you kind of wanted out but you didn't really push yourself out and we kind of wanted to trade you but we couldn't find anything good so is it really worth it at that point I don't think I don't think either side wants him to stay yeah I think it makes both sense and Russ let's go to a contender that's not gonna be alright Preston pop plays gaming Russ going to Miami to team up with Jimmy ba that seems to be the most likely outcome here it seems like it but I feel like a dark-horse team is gonna kind of come out of the come out of the Woodworks and get something going for russell westbrook but i think it makes a lot of sense and i think if he wants to go there oklahoma city's gonna do everything they can to get them there alright folks make sure you are subscribed get us to a hundred and thirty KR at one twenty six five six three right now those are still kind of on the rookie number so that's up those numbers get us to a hundred thirty k Jimmy and I will do another awkward high-five like we did win it once maybe we'll do oh I know dude I got I got a plan I will tell you but I got a plan it doesn't involve a high-five I don't know if I agree to this uh yes yes you do it's fine it's not bad you're fine so use hash tag Russ to get your questions on the show about Russell Westbrook that makes it a lot easier for producer Harris to actually find Harrison to me there's Harrison to find them use hash tag Russ get him up here on the show Tyrone says Roger go to the heat or the Knicks makes sense yeah but the Knicks would have to wait until December to actually pull off a trade forum so I don't think it's the Knicks I think I think I think the Knicks are kicking themselves right now after giving all those big contracts away now the Russell Westbrook's available I think they would have held out and tried to wait to acquire him somehow but I think the Heat are more likely like this next one Xavier or is it Xavier I would say Xavier says Jimmy do you want Russ on the Mavs yes he does he absolutely does I promise you and all said anything else he says he wants Russ on Dallas let me say this no I do not want Russell Westbrook on the mat however if the Mavs somehow pulled off a trade for Russell Westbrook I would be I would be pretty ecstatic about it I mean I mean let's be realistic I would have been go home being excited about it but I don't want them to do it I don't want them to do it does that make sense you know what I mean right yeah you're just a blind Homer Lee you're saying no II mean I I know what you mean you mean like Russell Westbrook is a fun player too why exactly would enjoy that you did something it's a good team exactly all right Connor neat who was a good match with Russ the Heat are the best fit yeah team wise I wonder if he means player wise like who would make a lot of sense about next to him that's tough I kind of think Butler's actually is a good fit for him I think he's a good look we've seen the two best fits Durant and Paul George hey I can't get much better than Paul George has a fit a Kevin Durant was also really great for him obviously Kawhi Leonard would be a great fit alongside Russell Westbrook they're like the most opposite players when it comes to you know how they act Robert de Leon says do you think Russ is a cancer and will ruin or maybe run a team down I don't think he's a cancer I think everybody that plays with Russ loves Russ I like as a person and he's not like a cancer in the locker room I do think he he hurts a lot of people's like overall careers like and how they're kind of elihpa ng alongside him so he's like a cancer sort of on the court but not off the court people like Russell Westbrook so I won't call him a cancer all right next up from Isaiah Bob who has a better attitude Chris Orr I really don't like Chris Paul so I'm gonna say Russell Westbrook because I appreciate the fact I don't like Russell Westbrook that much either but I appreciate the fact that he's 100% competitive and like he would run through a brick wall for whatever team he's playing for and Chris Paul just kinda seems like a d-bag on the court I don't like them all right Karl Lohmann says Russ to the Cavs they could have a three starting point guard lineup it look if he's gonna go to the cast it's actually a team that I mentioned early early on as a dark-horse don't finish your thought I you have to trade Collin Sexton at least or I don't think that trade garland I think they trade Sexton you go Sexton Shetty Osmond and like jr. Smith and I think that money works then and you go Russ and Garland what here's why this doesn't happen cuz Russ says now uh yeah Thunder will not trade Russ to a place he doesn't want to be but what if he's like wait I like Kevin Love enough that I want to go back and team up with them because they played together in UCLA Touche okay there's a chance okay I play devil's okay here though all right Lauren kedai says Russ trade package and Adams to the Raptors for their last year contract player so like that basically becomes a swap of Kyle Lowry and Marc Gasol wish like I I think for the Oklahoma City Thunder why exactly yeah I'd say no the Thunder say no in this case even though we said the Raptor said no when they if they includes Jakob all right Chris sports talk if Russ goes to Miami are they championship contenders I don't think so I mean I think they're tops top of the yeast pretty close which doesn't that by definition make them a championship contender why do I wouldn't put the number one in these I think they're at them top four yes that means dinner is in the top half seat in a conference came contender even if it is the downer the down is east I think they are a see know I've noticed say no I'll lean towards maybe image there okay okay all right Ryan do the Pistons have a better chance to land rust than the heat I don't think so I think the trade package the heat can put together and then the third team they could get involved with you know and getting dumped off some salary there makes the heat a better chance a better fit there for us I think the Pistons actually would be a really good fit though overall I think the Pistons are having a chance but I'd in the end I do think the Heat have the most likely chance I guess the great plurality chance they're face them and rust want to go to Detroit I don't know all right mozart watching i don't know how you're alive but thank you rust to the Knicks nope I don't I don't see it they have to wait till December that's a big big big hurdle they're huge and and I don't think either side Russ or the Thunder want to wait until December to to ship him off because it's getting awkward now Matthew Holmes says hashtag Russ what if love goes to the Thunder in a Cleveland deal well then Russ definitely doesn't want to go to Cleveland like it Russ stays in Oklahoma City gets Kevin Love – oh good ship out Gallinari you ship out Gallo and like Adam well that's a lot of crikey fathoms I mean they went through the trade package ah I still don't think it works because what is what is Russ and Kevin Love get you in the Western Conference maybe waiting for an AIDS maybe an 8c and you got to ship out other pieces – so how do you actually Gallinari you can trade that gets you really close there you can throw and like and this is Kevin Love really a big upgrade over Gallo like Gallo yeah a really good player so it's a it's an interesting idea I don't know if it makes the most I'm not very possible all right Kevin berry rush should stay and they should trade Stephen Adams well that's not the problem at all that gets him that saves the money but that's kind of the point right that laya that doesn't help the Thunder that makes them worse Russ is like entering the end of his prime like he wants to win right now you know I guess back half of his prime is what I should say I think he still got a couple more good years oh yeah alright folks again to use hashtag Russ to get your questions about him on the show we're doing our Russell Westbrook only live Q&A here so use the hashtag rust that makes it way easier for producer Harrison to actually find them here so again hash tag Russ Isiah Bob is gonna choke in the playoffs again or prove himself I'll let you take this one I think he chokes I don't think it joke so I think he's just he's not a great playoff player hey it's just natural like he's gotta have someone better alongside him that's why Paul George was great that's why Kevin Durant was great and then you ask his Jimmy Butler really that big of an upgrade in the playoffs Jimmy Butler steps up big so maybe you ask Russ to do less I don't know I don't think Russ is worth it in the playoffs Thunder and Grizzlies is a question about the Spurs says Russ to San Antonio oh Lord that would be interesting what do you give up you gave up like deshante Murray like Lonnie Walker and then a big contract like demar derozan maybe I think you pretty much have to include damar in any deal and then again did the Thunder want that I don't like well I guess just what do you have one year left he's out he has a player option this upcoming season I think so tomorrow and I think you might have to include Patty Mills too just to make the money come cool like that oh it's almost exact but that's kind of expensive and this first have so many young guards all already yeah that's the route that they want to go and then if you trade tomorrow it's like okay it's Rustin LaMarcus Aldridge again where does that get you in the Western called seven or eight seed yeah maybe a six maybe if they both are hitting then try makes it more likely you get the 18 all right William a Hooper if Russ goes to the Mavs did they win a title goes go do they win a title uh no I don't think so I mean a lot of things that have to go right and with Russ there's too many question marks all right Christoph Schmitt says what happens with shrewder and Adams a possible trade package with Russ yeah that's so much money he's a lot of money maybe in a three-team deal and one of those other two gets sent off yeah I'm interested to see because it looks ruder Adams Roberson and Gallo I mean that's four big contracts do they wanted and apparently they want to keep Gallinari I don't know what they're gonna do like I don't what their plan is going forward despite looking for trades for Russell Westbrook all right youngest is alt account big here says Russ to the Bucs or the win start with the Wizards one first no no Wizards hard no box would be a lot of fun I don't know how they get it done I'm man the Bucs would be so money is really tight because you can't deal Middleton right now you can't deal Lopes until you get to the December timeframe if you throw in Eric Bledsoe ersan Elias Silva and DJ Wilson you still got to cut out six million and then it's like why do the why does that London want to do it there's so limited amount of teams I can actually make that can actually pull this off the Bucs would be great for us and I think it'd be a lot of fun to watch for the NBA I don't think it's good for the Thunder there's and and if the Bucks have picks to trade like yeah they're not gonna be worth much well back to the Wizards here 7 Adam P says Bradley Beal goes the Oklahoma City Thunder be a great fit but do the Thunder wants to give up picks right now I mean they have a lot but I don't think they want to give them up so I if Russ stays that's gonna be something they look into throwing shrewder and Roberson that works out from a money perspective and then you get if you give him picks to me ok possible but I don't think SGA and you stick with Russ idly that's not the Thunder want to go now me neither but I think that that could work if they were still committed to Wayne this year which I just I don't think that's their plan their team Johnson 100 Russ is stuck nobody wants that dumb guy ego oh wow harsh harsh there but I'm not gonna call him a dumb guy but he does have an ego and it always shows out I guess like NBA players do yeah it's just reality all right Matthew Holmes says Westbrook enzyme would be fun to watch yes it would sure would what are you ok so let's think about the pelicans telling you don't do a Dre package here okay Jackson Hays yes I think it has to start with Jackson Hays Jackson haze maybe Alexander Walker I think you have to include true holiday to start from just just from a salary cap perspective okay drew holiday Jackson haze Nikki dogs Andrew Walker and I think that definitely gets it done from the thunders perspective I think so tonight I don't know if the pelicans do that though see I cuz then also what you do with maybe you have to bring in a third team and find a taker for blonds oh I forgot wall until you ship out Lonzo somewhere else you bring in Russ you keep reading keep favours good man that would get fun convoluted it but it's fun but Russ and Zion together ho my gosh all right piggy piggy if the Knicks get Ross is it just because they are desperate for stars ooh that's a good question behind yeah yeah yeah I mean yes all right next up hear from David Urbanski Russ going to the Sixers I think this is actually RDA ambition for the 76ers he's telling us that this is no question this is straight-up just telling us now that would suck Ben Simmons and Russell Westbrook on the same team would be so bad icing that would be horribly bad now if Vince Simmons goes to the Thunder well then you have Ben Simmons in SGA like cool alright Christophe Schmidt I like Griffin Drummond and Russ together the problem is just it's in Detroit yep Detroit's not a good city that's just the truth all right cave and Barry Russ and Adams get dealt to the pelicans for Drew holiday and that doesn't work out close from a money perspective no that's so much money going to New Orleans it doesn't make any sense you get rid of Adams you still have to include more money going back to the Thunder for it to work out I don't even know why produce Harrison's doing this one I am rust to China he's better than that all right Chris Jones rust to the Bulls we thought about this one the biggest problem is they just you have to go but you can play off ball Otto Porter or Zach Lavine you have to throw in Cristiano Felicio and then what's your actual asset your major building block asset is it look reporter I'm not sure now what if they include what are their first-round picks or a couple then maybe things get interesting but I don't think so alright poop dealer slinging here says Russ to the Timberwolves and cat gets out of Minnesota why wouldn't Ennis so to do that though ok Carl ëthey towns is infinitely better than Russell Westbrook is right now and he has way more potential than Russell was so Minnesota would never do that deal there's no way all right sports geeks with the heat make a rush trade today or should they wait a little bit I mean I hope it happens today just for the sake of it happening as soon as possible because free agency is getting boring but I think it might be in their favorite away there's no major rush I don't think yeah I think I agree all right next up from zach mud rust to the Kings know what for well actually I guess are you trading away deer and Fox then don't you want to just kind of want to build with Fox and from a money perspective you have to wait and then you have to include some combination of Harrison Barnes Dewayne Dedmon Trevor Ariza Cory Joseph three of those guys can they even do those contracts or appealing no I doesn't get it done I don't think the Kings making me and a lot of sense for us because the money and timing doesn't make sense all right Bob one-two-three lilica says or harden doesn't want Russ he takes way too many shots yeah that's probably true I don't know though I think they like each other so they would just make it work but I mean does does harden want Chris Paul on his team either I don't think so so alright guys make sure you are subscribed get us to a hundred and thirty K let's hit that magical number do you wanna know now what I think we should do what it's gonna spoil the joke but I'll say it anyway you go for the fist bump and I go and I go for the high-five we go full on

guys make sure you're subscribed if you missed anything from our show the most overpaid players to top rates left it's a bad group or our Russell Westbrook Q&A stay tuned we'll put this on loop for you guys coming up right now hello folks and welcome into NBA now I am Tom that is Jamie MBA free agency is still technically going but there aren't very many players left now with that in mind we're gonna take a look at the top available free agents the players who could still in theory help out a team well before we get to our top ten some other notable players out there for the most part the old guys yeah basically look Vince Carter I still think he's a service we'll bet serviceable back up it for some teams for a contender he had some good moments for the allow to Toronto for one more year yeah go do something we want to see Vince Carter win if you're an NBA fan Pau Gasol coming off an injury he still wants to play again Jonathan Simmons is kind of fizzling out at this point Jamal Crawford look he finished the season with a fifty five point game and he can still be a good six-man and then there's there's one more guy in the list that I'm stuck all right guys everyone do it you're already doing it shout out cortex and the Jewish man and Tyler and swell Z and Michael they oh they all heads acai before you brought this up Chris Jones did it Connor nee Diego Gonzalez Tommy H Dennis did it you're triggered by the phrase aza uh yeah you could you can say that not a big jaws up look at all these Zaza's flowing in I absolutely love it right now so so more shoutouts here Billy Jefferson Trev Hawk Hawk Trev has it in there Tommy H Nathan Coyle after high school show has won in there as well Dennis has it it see Connor Rodrigo thank you all for everything Zaza I love patrol and driven here on the show you sure do now again there are still some players who really would have made our top ten probably yeah but they aren't technically free agents yet Dwight Howard it with dala JR Smith Courtney Lee those guys will probably get bought out or waived or stretched waived but for now they are listed on the potential buy outside not one of the top ten for agents out there yeah not yet but if they were I mean Dwight Howard would probably still be pretty high on this list he was he height all the issues that he comes with he'll be different this year I swear okay and Iguodala would also be really high up there junior Smith it would probably crack Thompson all these guys probably what I think at this point maybe not that maybe maybe maybe leave Courtney Lee off them off that list but might be better than our number 10 guy all right so let's dive into our number 10 that is Sam Dekker look it's it's a bad group yeah pretty rough he's kind of an undersized stretch for in terms of like size and body mass their can play some defense but if your stretch for part of that is stretching and shooting and that's not really an area that Decker is great at just over 30% from deep last year that doesn't fit no not at all young though you could get better and that's the thing you kind of hold out hope that he does kind of improve it kind of stinks that the two wisconsin kids Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker just have not panned out whatsoever they played together of that team who was the kid this came out this year and literally can't shoot big guy oh I know who you're talking about cuz he didn't get draft shoot he was he was post unsigned free agent undrafted free agent but even half even an app that's it but yeah Sam Dekker he just doesn't really fit today's NBA which you meet out of your forwards alright folks I will make note today's July 9th apparently it is cow Appreciation Day yeah so if you watch some of our live free agency during the midst of all the chaos before Kauai sign I don't remember who started it but someone just threw in cow and then everyone was typing in cow for that day it wouldn't stop today is cow free Shi ation day so type in cow we can appreciate all the cows everywhere go get yourself dress up like a cow get yourself some free chick go a thang or do that yeah maybe drink a cold glass of milk whatever whatever you want to do to appreciate cows today you do all kinds of cows people also throwing in move we appreciate it here let's go to number nine then Carmelo Anthony Jimmy there he is it pained me to put him on this top-10 list I I mean look this third point is the most perfect point to sum up what Carmelo Anthony is he's inefficient he's old he's out of shape and he can't play defense that's that that's it I mean he can still be a high-volume scorer on 20 25 shots maybe if he can accept his role off the bench but Melo is just he's number 9 for a reason and you can argue he shouldn't even be on this list but I should be on it you can argue that he shouldn't he's definitely one of the top 350 players in the NBA so in theory he is worthy of a roster spot the problem becomes what that bullet point was right Melo doesn't play defense he's not a great three-point shooter anymore there were clearly locker room issues for him with Houston lasted 10 games last year like that's a pretty big pretty clear sign there so people are already doing it good baller or scrub mostly ballers put their arse Mizzou I've seen a lot of scrubs roll yeah ballers started then and all became the scrubs there hey do you guys know if you've watched chat sports for more than you know a day you know that I think he's absolutely a scrub because that's what he is so 5.0 says he can still be both of you one on one stop being such a I'm not comparing Melo to myself there are like a probably 2 million plus people 2 billion plus people in the world that are better at basketball than me I'm comparing Carmelo Anthony to the rest of the NBA compared to the rest the NBA Melo is a scrub I just think you're a hater plant it simple maybe I am it also scrub through fence in number 8 Trey Lyles the Nuggets rescinded his qualifying offer after they made their deal for Jeremy grant he's not a good shooter but if you needed like a backup big he was kind of more of that 5'4 hybrid I think that makes sense so for Lyles I don't think he's gonna be a key addition here he's not gonna be a starter and he's not the guy I think that you saw I never thought they were drafting but worthwhile pick up yeah I mean when you talk did draft him he was supposed to be kind of this stretch for he started out that way 38% from three in his rookie season and then it just continued to decline and with that decline kind of be you know you got pushed out of the rotation he's kind of soft he's not gonna be able to defend the bigger big men down low he regrets this past year where he really did 30 plus 35 percent plus three points yeah that's kind of been closer to his career averages which is more like 33 ish and then 25% from deep this past year he ain't gonna get that done but look at 23 years old I think he's worth taking a risk on taking a flyer on him go back to back Tracy or Trey Burke up next and under Scott undersize score first point guard which makes sense for the bench but with a an overabundance of point guards out there already it's kind of tricky to find a spot for Trey Burke yeah again another guy that's still just 26 I mean it's 26 years old he's still super young he came out of Michigan was supposed to meet his potential he never really did that but as like a backup point guard he's pretty solid I think if you need a guy just come in and give you some quick buckets off the bench that's what Trey Burke will do shoots well enough as well he's a good enough three-point shooter but getting into that mid-range and finishing from around there has kind of been his sweet spot and then you know defense you can't really ask him play defense he's Gaines the bench yeah and he's not a great distributor it's kind of like he's a point guard off the bench that needs a better distributor a shooting guard and a point guards body exists kind of that that sort of fit there for Trey Berg all right folks if you're watching right now and you haven't already make sure you are

slash at sports TV but you're also watching on youtube so just hit the big red button and pretty simple just subscribe there we appreciate it all very much so make sure you are subscribed let's move then to Lance Stephenson number six so the oldest 28 year old in the NBA was the joke he made before he went it feels like he feels like he's been around forever and he's only 28 but look he's kind of one of those you put him out there and he just does everything for you you can grab a rebound he can push the transition he can score the ball in different ways but he's not the Lance Stephenson from the Indiana Pacers which was still blowing in people's ears though that he can do that he is very good at he's good at being a pest good defender I think off the bench he's still a good option for a team it's just are you willing to take the risk on him with all of his quirks and chemistry don't have a crazy person but yeah she shoots good enough he plays good enough defense can rebound good enough and pass good enough there but everyone knows what Lance Stephenson is like yes he's Lance I don't really know what other way to describe it any fun I think you know again this is another guy I would take a flier on if I were a team looking for a backup three maybe a two but then he's kind of stuck in that role he can't I think they thought Indiana thought he could become a point guard at some point and he did never become that he's that to guard maybe a small forward all right so which would you guys rather watch the NBA Summer League or the MLB all-star game that's tonight the all-star game it is tonight last night was the home run derby didn't watch any that's what I watched it I the NBA Summer League because I enjoy the summer league a lot and a lot more than the MLB all-star game which I forgot was even this weekend maybe I'll put on the the all-star game tonight like on my laptop I play video games just have it in the background because he goes on for about six and a half hours yeah let's see I see some MLB votes but for the most part here and this may surprise you the NBA show is voting for the summer league that yeah that's quite shuffle figure all right keep those votes flowing sir Malika's at number five Jeremy Lin Lin sanity is dead sure but Jeremy Lin's not bring him back I want him to have some kind of role on some kind of NBA team I don't know where he's gonna go he was better for the Hawks than he was for the Raptors cuz he played more he played the eight blade that he also played for the the Hornets which people forget even spent time there huh that's well when he was there he actually was pretty productive its injuries have kind of held him back and in playing time in Toronto is what really held him back who's better Jeremy Lin or scary Terry it's scary but Jeremy Lin had the better peak and the shooting though yeah it's not pretty point shooting again NBA teams and me especially they are so focused on the three-point shooting there and linds Daly been a better three-point shooter other points in his NBA career but that drop off this year was a pretty big red flag plus the injury history in the past also there yeah I think the injuries is what scares teams away the most now because look when he once he got to Brooklyn New York excuse me and he played some with Houston he was playing really consistently and then it just continued to trickle down and trickle down and trickle down the heat would need to clear up a couple roster spots and save money how about Lin as a fit there as a backup point guard yeah if they don't end up landing Russell Westbrook either they do it or maybe if they do yeah and they get in they dump grande Rogich somewhere else I like Lin as a backup for a team if you I'm healthy I think he can still provide valuable minutes that's what that said number four Justin holiday he does offer some three indie play he does this is actually a guy that I think I'm a little higher on than you might be Tom I would like but I let you put him up there hi yeah I like Justin holiday I think he's a really good defender and a reliable scorer he's also got long arms and he can finish around the rim which that explained everything it makes him sound like the best NBA player in the world but he does have some good minutes in him Memphis utilized him just enough but I think a real contender could actually use him even better I like him look the numbers are maybe a bit inflated because Memphis was not good last year but ten points four rebounds offers quality defense and can shoot I am a little surprised there hasn't been more interest around holiday yeah maybe I don't know what it might be maybe holiday thinks he's gonna get a bigger contract than he is I think he's more of a mid-level slash you know minimum kind of guy I think he can get more than minute the minimum but at least I think he could at least get a mid-level in the NBA all right so who would you rather sign type age for holiday elf for Lin I think originally we had Lin above it and then we're kind of like actually you know what let's go with holiday so both our votes are for H yeah I'm taking Justin holiday just for his versatility as opposed to Jeremy Lin just playing that point guard role NIC Tracy says age 7 Adam says age Billy says age mr. robot says Zaza there are some L votes flowing in but I think the H is definitely have it here on that front let's go that's it number three Kenneth Faried who really did Jimmy have a major bounce-back here for Houston Kenneth Faried when he was at Denver was like one of my favorite players yeah he had some monster games and monster year I liked him why he's a high energy big but then fell off when he went to Brooklyn cuz they didn't play him they didn't want to play him and then he got traded and then he got bought out and then he went to Houston and like you said had a good bounce-back year he's a big part of what they tried to do in the NBA Playoffs as a bench guy yeah near the end that previous year and for a good portion before he went to Houston I kind of thought he was done yeah I just don't think he had any more but then he went back to Houston only in tight with his time in Houston he actually averaged almost 13 points per game and eight rebounds so again if you need that high energy big like you described to the kind of that 5/4 guy Freed's makes a lot of senses yeah and look under sighs yeah it's six foot eight so I think that's kind of what bouncing out because a bench big yeah I mean if you're if you're undersized and you can't shoot the three which four eats made ten into his entire career then you're not gonna stick around the leak nowadays but for Reid as a backup you know sign me up I think you'd be good for a team we'll see where he ends up my folks we have a giveaway for you from our friends over at my book yet over to chat sports comm slash NBA now use the promo code on your screen chat NBA once you sign up and deposit and

of my team jerseys so I'm going to Milwaukee Bucks I want to honest Jersey like that I just want the antenna khumba on the back of my ticket ease I folks again that is chat sports comm slash NBA now promo code is chat NBA then email promo at chat sports.com movements in number two Kyle Korver recently waived by the Suns that was not a surprise there's going to be interest in him because if you think I can just shoot corner threes Kyle Korver is your dude yeah I don't think he's gonna be on the open market very long because shooting isn't valuable in this league and it doesn't decline with his age I mean the older he gets I mean he's still got a great shot doesn't matter if you just put him in the corner he's gonna knock down a three-pointer I did that for Utah got sent to Memphis and got sent to Phoenix then got bought out or waived excuse me and now we'll see where he ends up definitely going to end up with a contender though shout out whoever it was that asked us how many more times Korver would be trading we're like now II think he's done I'll just get bought out and then like two days later he got traded to the Phoenix Suns there which we were wrong what he gonna do where do you think Korver ends up here I've had him penciled in as a Lakers backup for so long now but they have a lot of guards actually they do and they just signed KCPD back they're kind of filling up I like the Bucs I that's one of the teams that's actually looking at them and makes a lot of sense to me think the Sixers as a fit those are the three I mean those are the three teams and I uh I think I think he ends up with the Lakers but I want to see him go to Milwaukee let's move that to number one that is Kelly Oubre Jr who I think pretty clearly is the best region left out there it's a huge drop-off after Kelly Oubre I think this guy's gonna get actually a good contract not just a mid-level not just a minimum kind of thing I think he thought he was gonna get more than he has on the open market and that's why he's staying on the market right now I don't know what he's gonna fetch for the rest he is a restricted free agent here's the problem for obray there's nobody else out there with money right now Dallas Dallas is it's kind of like it and I think Dallas would like a player like uber eight but he doesn't really fit Rick Carlisle style you know whether it's his attitude and just the fact that he can't really shoot all that well I mean 32% from three is respectable but it's not that's what holds him back though from being a true full on three and D player but 15 points a game played well for the Suns the Suns offseason maneuvering I think has been to sign Ricky Rubio and maintain the cat polled for uber so they can go over the cap to reassign him or match any offer sheet that he ends up getting out there and if that's the case I think that makes sense makes sense for Phoenix in the end I think cooperate ends up back there but I think it might be just at the qualifying offer and he says you know what next year it's a bad free agency class let's try again as a true as a true unrestricted I think you might be on to something there I like that all right so we had a break number one but folks let us know in the comments section who do you think is the best unsigned free agent let us know if it's not a break I think it is it Korver for you then that's our force that's what we had it to but that's what I have it to but I don't know how long he stays there because there's other guys that are about to get bought out that I think take over that buy out guys who is it for you biggie I I'm gonna say Dwight Howard okay he right there from Jimmy folks let us know what you guys think in the comments section let's move into some more live QA use hashtag NBA that makes it a lot easier for producer Harrison to actually find them and bring them up on screen so again hashtag NBA is the key here we'll start off with fook well LeBron win another championship I think he wins at least two more before he retires that's why I would say I think the under on – I'll go with one oh I think he's got one more in him I think it's gonna be a battle between the Lakers and Clippers – I for the next four years potentially all right you Oldham on says Korver to the Lakers that was our prediction my prediction it's not where I want him to go I'd rather see him go to Milwaukee but I think he ends up in LA all right Cassandra litter says who's gonna win the west Clippers I got Clippers – hey sorry Lakers fans who remain big mad at me it's inevitable bitter at what going down if the lakers aren't even second they might not even be third West is loaded sorry like fans I backed it wants to know where the bowls end up next season make sure you're subscribed my friend cuz we posted our Eastern Conference playoff projections that's coming up the way they're coming up tonight that's coming out tonight yeah I forgot about that so stay tuned for that that comes out tonight got we filmed it yesterday on our live show VOD comes out tomorrow so there you go camera tonight once tonight thank god this is not a cut and it's only for this Cameron H Westbrook to the heat that's like the only viable option it's looking like right right there I think that's that's the most likely yeah all right Tyler wants to know if Dwight Howard is a good fit for the Warriors I forgot about the warriors this year it'll be different guys this is the year no they just got Kevon Looney they just got Willie cauley-stein there's no need I mean unless for some reason they just really impress him or he really impresses them I don't think so Benjamin Robin wants to know where JR Smith will end up I'm gonna say the Clippers if that well let's see if they filled up all the roster spots I think they might have like one more but it's the Lakers I know rich Paul baby Ison wants Italy that's what happens I just want to stay away from the Lakers one more time all right 7 Adam P yeah blazars still have to free roster spots who should they get that's a good question they lost shooting with Seth Curry they haven't really added a whole lot of shooting in this office is on his back I kind of look for a defensive wing type if you can actually find that guys you lost Aminu and that was a good one Lance do they want I don't think Lance fits Portland Melo nope uh Melo I like I like Korver in Portland I don't think it'll happen but I would like Korver in Portland I think that give use a backup point court how about Lin or Burke ooh I like Trey Burke yeah I like Tripp well Anthony Simon's that's who they want to be I don't know I don't know what Portland wants with those two Rob's response is the biggest questions all right Drake Drex who do you think will be the MVP kind of like Curry's chances actually I like Curry's chances but I'm taking me honest I think Yanis will shoot like thirty three percent from three and just be great all right folks it is Taco Tuesday so what is your favorite taco you can't say the taco that I know you're thinking of right now but we will talk about tacos on Tuesdays only chewy or not chewy side Torchy's tacos trailer park trashy well what do you put in your taco because breakfast taco is also fantastic by the way they are good I mean at torchie's that the trailer park is like lightly breaded chicken and then they have this like spicy ranch sauce and then queso and rice and beans on the side and a little bit of sweet corn oh I'm hungry now we can watch yeah all right Marvin Lee says does oh hold on does Dwight Howard comes the Dallas oh lord have mercy I don't know what in caps-lock I will scream your question I don't know what was more annoying the fact that it was in caps lock the fact that you yelled it or the fact that this is actually a question because no he doesn't come to Dallas not it's not even considered alright amoebic mad about Dwight Howard Dallas questions by the way so keep those coming all right yeah but it's the no I know oh come on if the Spurs make the playoff this season no team will ever break their record it is pretty insane how long they've been away often time what's the what's the 96 to 97 no it was the first year when Pavich took over as the interim they didn't make it that year and they've not met they haven't missed it since then that's the question alright Jeremy Anderson wants to know about Jamal Crawford to the Lakers um I don't think Jamal Crawford is that type of player like I think he wants to go somewhere where you can just bawl I can't just play and I don't know where that'll be yeah get some more questions here ran man two to one who has the better chance to make the playoffs the kings or the pelicans first of all I don't think either of them make the NBA Playoffs but if there is a better chance I got to give it to the king I'm going Kings to here because they were closer last year and I love them with the pelicans have done this offseason but it's not enough I like that last question that appointing his own criticisms here like a loser dougie Jones will Amari take a vet minimum with the Knicks uh no they already side three power forwards I think that that dougie here once or tomorrow wants to go to a winner yeah New York championship contenders there all right folks use hash tag Russ to get your questions about Russell Westbrook on the show we will get to those here we'll do a full giant Russell Westbrook Q&A so use hashtag Russ to get those questions on the show but first almost on the different coming up here all right folks once again I am Tom Downey that is Jimmy Crowder let's take a look here at the most overpaid players in the NBA feel free to send all of your hate to me on Twitter at what going down e I promise to engage and not just be a smartass I'm gonna be a smartass there in the end so first up some dishonorable mentions Gordon Hayward it was not the same guy last year I mean look they paid him they paid to Utah Jazz Gordon Hayward and he suffered a bad injury it's not his fault he's just not worth thirty three million dollars anymore maybe he works back up to it but I don't think so I will make note here there is no Terry Rozier I push for him I was outvoted by producer Harrison and my co-host here Jimmy Kent Bazemore is on there at least for now Jang me and he me Solomon Hill let's move out to number 10 on our list that's Evan has one year at just under 19 million left which Evan Turner is a fine player but ain't no universe in which Evan Turner is worth an almost 19 million per year no especially he's considering the fact that he's not a 3-point shooter he's this point forward yes you can't shoot and he's kind of slow and can't really defend that well I don't know 19 million dollars now he's with this I mean come on come on brutal you know now he's with the Atlanta Hawks where I guess he's playing that backup point guard position he's just not worth that much money anymore I mean I think there was a what was he the number two overall pick one time yeah yeah yeah yeah not worth the turn of course was flipped for Kent Bazemore who made our or made our dishonorable mentions listen all right stick with the Hawks here a common theme on this one Eastern coverage is a lot of bad contracts Otis yeah Allen Crabbe one year eighteen point five million the Hawks took him on as a literal salary dump from Brooklyn yeah look he was a victim of that 2015/2016 off-season not a victim a beneficiary yeah I guess I should say that of getting overpaid you know cuz he was restricted at the time and the Brooklyn Nets had to pay up and they did and they got him away he's a good 3-point shooter still but he doesn't play anymore he played 43 games last season under 10 points and under 38% three-point shooting is fine but that's like you know five ish maybe up to 10 max million per year not approaching that twenty million dollar figure alright folks different kind of question here for you we had to veto Mitch's Krabs joke better flavor of milk type C for chocolate s for strawberry it's such an obvious answer but Tom doesn't know what the right answer is it's chocolate I had if you take urine I I am fully aware of the fact that like 90% 85% of the votes here are going to be for chocolate i I I respect the fact that the C's are winning I know I'm in the minority I don't like chocolate milk all that much so I'll go with strawberry well okay you're wrong strawberry flavored water fun fact okay energy back well like strawberry more than chocolate I know I'm weird I know I know scroll boys schoolboy agrees with you he's touched strawberry I think he's the only one typing yes right he's just typing it over and over again pone star two four eight says don't be gross stop yeah let's move that's in number eight we are three four three by the way of the most overpaid players have all been treated this offseason that's Hassan Whiteside at number eight one year twenty seven million for a player who wasn't happy with the Heat last year and has some major attitude problems there was a time in which he was definitely worth this contract oh he was one of the best room protectors in the league he's pulling down double-digit rebounds every single night he hasn't I mean he still does the rebounding he still kind of protects the rim but he averaged a double-double but like inefficient double-double efficient double-double and he said he was last year frankly a bit of a cancer yeah I mean the chemistry issues on and off the court or a big problem complaining about not getting playing time when really BAM Adebayo deserves his time I mean he's in Portland now I think he knows his role is gonna be behind use of Newark itch or until Newark itch returns maybe even starting for a little while but he's not the player he was when he got paid that contract so that's why he's overpaid now let's move Vincent number seven that is Chris Paul who again this is just for this upcoming season most overpaid players but three years left on his deal 124 point 1 million that's a lot for a player who is I think very clearly on the decline I mean yeah like he can't defend anybody in this in this league now he's under sized played 58 games last season and only played 58 games this season before that reserve problem injuries are an issue and again it's not his fault that he's hurt but it still factors into the fact that he's overpaid and you know now he's a guy that needs to ball in his hands but so does James Harden maybe if they go make her move for Russell Westbrook he that's three ball handlers like that need the ball in their hands to succeed and Chris Paul just doesn't really fit it it's a big issue when the tied for second highest paid player in the NBA puts up fifteen and eight that's not bad by any means yeah like if Chris Paul was on a contract worth half of that he wouldn't be close to to this list right right but only Steph Curry makes more money per year than Chris Paul does Russell Westbrook has tried is tied at that figure there so what will Houston do with cp3 type T for trade K for keep I think for this upcoming year he I think they keep them because I have to not because they want to they're gonna try to trade them they're gonna look every look everywhere to dump his salary I still think they're gonna be able to get it done unless know what you guys spoke there think there Wow shareable there type T for trade K for keep the keys I think haven't here in the chat is okay yeah I think you're right let's move that to number six Bismack Biyombo one-year seventeen million and he makes like no impact on this for the morning four point four points per game as literally eight he got overpaid cuz he had a great run with the Toronto Raptors like he looked like one of the best centers in the league a high-energy guy off the bench and he hasn't been that since then you know he got drafted I believe by the Hornets and then went to Toronto and the way back to the Hornets they hoped he could be what they drafted him for and he hasn't been at all I'm you are paying seventeen million for this that that's it and fifty thousand haribol fifty-three total games he actually played in like he doesn't play he's either hurt or they just don't play them so seventeen million dollars is absolutely ridiculous there is no justification for the money that Bismack Biyombo is getting at this point his career right for reference he is among the top 15 highest-paid centers in the NBA he makes more than Clint capela does who else is on that list below um that's uh Valanciunas makes less although that's that because he signed a pretty cheap dealership nerve pitchman Brook Lopez DeAndre Jordan and then of course all the young players right tsubasa eight and all those Flex players there so that's a lot of money to pay for a not even a good backup setter Nadia Batson same number five Andrew Wiggins a four-year hundred and twenty two million dollar deal was paid on the potential has not reached it yet no I mean nowhere close he he was paid in like the like from what I heard the off see or the the front office was like hey Wiggins if you promise to work really really hard we're gonna go ahead and give you this huge contract and so that you can live up to your potential he's like yeah just give me five years hundreds whatever a million dollars I'll make it happen he hasn't eighth among small forwards he's making about twenty seven point five is up coming soon there that's a head of guys like Leon Bogdanovich you just got paid right right yeah look it's rough he's not what he's supposed to be I mean look his numbers look great like all the paper in points again oh that that's great but it's not efficient none of its efficient he doesn't play defense he's lazy and his body like he can't play he just can't play defense against bigger guys cuz he's so skinny everyone says trade Wiggins in the comments I mean if they can dump him that'd be great I think a change of scenery would do him well I do think he went somewhere else he could be a really productive player but that's it number four another small Ford who makes more than Andrew or makes less than Wiggins just barely here that is Otto Porter he's not a bad player and I'm my finisher thought when I saw this one like I think Otto Porter is too high on this list and then we went and looked at the numbers more in depth there you know shoot well from three but you're gonna pay 27 plus million for 14 points per game yeah I mean it's rough looking and they trade it for him obviously the Chicago Bulls did and now I think they're kind of stuck with them I still think he could probably start on a lot of teams I do think he's a starting caliber player that's not the question here the question is is he worth his contract and the answer is absolutely not it's not who is the better player it's who's getting paid too much you know and that's Otto Porter's problem he's getting paid more to be a thirteen point nine point four game score right it's not worth there's a debate raging right now in the comment section that says Porter or or Andrew whose you rather have on your team with our contracts included of course I think I oh man because Porter only has two years left that's a factor uh but I think Wiggins potential if he traded team what if it's just for one season Wiggins I'd take Wiggins I think I think he can still be I still believe in his potential all right folks make sure you are subscribed to here get us to a hundred and thirty K and look at these votes here flowing in people are much thinking Porter but there are some Wiggins votes there so yeah maybe we're in disagreement with the consensus there but make sure you are subscribed you're watching on youtube right now over a thousand watching I know not everyone watching is subscribe so hit us up with that subscription button we'd appreciate that bear it is that hundred and thirty K bargain number three though pains me dearly because I love John Wall but here's the reality oh man seventy three games the past two seasons tore his Achilles for a player that heavily relies on athleticism probably gonna miss all this upcoming season and now he's on a four-year 171 million dollar deal I don't know if you saw a picture but there's a picture though the Wizards recently posted and it was of him working out and he's gotten to like pretty jacked like he's putting on muscle but if you're a guy that is reliant on explosiveness and you just tore your Achilles you don't want to put on muscle like that's the last thing you undo you want to continue to stay you know trim and then that's not what he's doing so he's probably out for this whole next season for the injury John Wall isn't close to this list not even know don't know we're near him because it's a great player I mean one of the best point guards in the league if he's healthy but coming back for an Achilles injury almost never brings you back to what you were and you're paying him for the next four years and now you've got him counting thirty eight million when he's probably not gonna play this year at least I mean he could be out even long that's rough that is top for money for point guards there and who knows what he's gonna look like coming off that Achilles injury alright folks we got a giveaway for you from our friends over at my bookie chat sports.com slash NBA now use that promo code chat MB a 300 percent deposit bonus you put down 50 bucks

meters you legit not one of those knockoff ones a legit NBA jersey just email promo at chat sports.com move then said number two I think a very clear number two by the way Nick Batum two years 52.7 was once a pretty good player now just wildly overpaid I think these these top two and then everybody else is a huge drop-off I agree I mean John Wall is is pretty close because of the injury but based on play and contract these top two were pretty obvious Nick Batum is just I mean there's one time where he was he was never worth this contract and all I want to see I don't think close is – he was close to it but he's always a me he's been overpaid since he got this deal and you can see why with the numbers I mean it's not good he makes more than Victor Oladipo makes yeah Gary Harris makes yeah then JJ reddick makes there are all kinds of guards and wings there that make less than Nick Batum 25 million 25.5 opinion this year for less than ten points a game it's bad it's like he's a great defender time to make up for it either you know no and he's still got two years left so you're still paying him for like this year and next year if you can't figure out a way dump him I think he has a player option on that second year and obviously he's gonna pick it up because he's not gonna make anywhere close to that money here in a couple years and so Hornets have several players on this list here so who was the worst owner governor governor in the NBA because Jordan has given us pretty bad deal it looks like Michael Jordan right now but I don't know it's not it's not him but if we're basing it off this game stolen its James Dolan pretty I quit right now don't sell the team the team make the Knicks average again fired all the team yeah let us know the comment section there I see Dolan people putting in LeBron which is pretty funny New York Knicks which is that shames Dolan's burner account says me absolute the correct answer there is James Dolan number one though the worst contracts for this season by far at least until gets bought out Chandler Parsons one year twenty five million that has been the worst contract for like two years in a row three three years in a row he's played a total of 95 games in three seasons combined like that's that's horrible guys remember there's 82 games in an NBA season so that's just math that me that's just math that's all it is right there quick math but dude Parsons can't say healthy as knees or are the biggest issue there was a one time where he was a really good player there was at one point where he was you know it could be a small forward he can he can handle the ball he was a power forward at the same time in six foot ten and then knee issues click kicked in and everything fell apart for Chandler Parsons he is the 45th highest player in the NBA here which in theory and of course rookie contracts kind of skew this but that means he should be one of the sit like the second-best player on a team or at least the third best I mean at top fifty guy in the NBA I shouldn't play never he's ever never on the court when he does play he's not even that great there John says the best three times the worst contract of the year it's a no-brainer here Parsons is the worst contract the ha have three of our top ten yeah Parsons Turner and Crabb the good news is they traded for all of them because they're an asset acquisition mode which is hard yeah absolutely i mean i mean this is what brooklyn did and it obviously worked for brooklyn they got back to the playoffs pretty quickly after all that stuff so that's what atlanta is going for and you know Chandler Parsons isn't gonna be there next season I don't imagine he will be but Turner and Crabb actually will probably stick stick around on the roster so we had Parsons number one we won't hear from you guys to who is the most overpaid player in the NBA let us know in the comment sections I think Parsons though wins it just clearly he absolutely should be who would you say has been the most overpaid this offseason Terry Rozier pretty like what are on this list what I always I couldn't do it almost had him on this list and I we had to leave them on the Brennan ater says wall but there are Parsons and some Chris Paul votes coming in someone says Dario Sarge like Fernando rookie contracts on a very cheap contractor but let us know what you guys think in the comments section alright folks it is time for our Russell Westbrook Q&A everyone's accident about everyone's talking about him cuz everyone wants to know what happens there so this little QA dedicated only to Russell Westbrook so make sure you use hashtag Russ to get up here on screen makes it a lot easier for producer Harrison to find all these comments that are flowing in use hashtag Russ first up from Antonio Russ and Korver on the Golden State Warriors draw handler Russell Westbrook and Golden State would be a nightmare a nightmare like you literally would have to make curry into a spot of shooter and what DeAngelo Russell just becomes most your relevant player in the NBA this small three guards lineup that would be so miserably bad now Korver sure maybe but Korver is not going to Golden State all right shrimp Hawk Hawk Trev what do you think the Rockets need to do to get Russ and do you like Zaza Hopkins and Zaza milk what in the world is going on I love you guys never change um you you threw together a rocket straight hit I don't with it they're pretty closer you have to do Clinton if you if you're clean if you're keeping Chris Paul because I don't want that contract so I assume they're not going to take any deal involving Chris Paulus it's maybe if you throw in like 8 first-round pick so it doesn't make sense rockets it's capela Gordon and then salary cap filler here in terms of Isaiah heart and scene and like a Gary Clark that makes it work there plus I assume maybe a draft pick as well all right magic Brown better career Russ or cp3 ooh that's a good question because I mean Russ still has a little bit of ways to go I still have stuff to do I think I'm gonna go through us I think I'm gonna go Russ also you wanted an MVP he's been to an NBA Finals Mike Ross has never done that era Chris Paul has never done that I think I and Chris pulled the triple-double I mean the Russell Wow I'm getting mixed up Russell Westbrook their triple doubles like in the efficient years was incredible I take R Us over Chris Paul you know nine times out of ten all right cool back again says will rush averaged a triple-double again he's done it back-to-back years or is it back-to-back it was back-to-back years um I think it depends on where he ends up but I think he will I think it'll just be a little less points per game and then pretty equal rebounds and assists possibly all right Isiah bob says Russ to Toronto for Pascal Sayaka Oh interesting because this is coming from a Raptors fan cuz the Raptors did not want to include siakam in a deal for Russell Westbrook I'm checking the numbers here um they still got SIOC I'm so cheap you still have to include Kyle Lowry I under do that yeah I honestly though I think Toronto said says no I think Toronto says no as well but I I think it'd be interesting now let's say they do get Russ then what else you have yeah you don't have me you have Martin stolen serge ibaka all right we'll Fischer any chance that the Pistons get Russ I think they do make sense there I don't think that that that's a good fit in terms of of the Pistons and Tony Snell Reggie Jackson if they want to wait to Muncie maybe we can throw in like how from in to really make the money work right now I think the Pistons could could I think they could I think doom booyah still unsigned so if they wanted to throw him in and give them a nice young piece you pair up to Oklahoma guys Russ and Blake Griffin and then go Andre Drummond in the middle that's a competitive team in the Eastern Conference all right dougie Jones what if he just stays we've never seen a full season of just Russ haven't we though like when Oladipo was there it was basically just Russ like Oladipo was not the whole depo he is this season it didn't work out that well if he stays then it's just awkward like then it's like okay you kind of wanted out but you didn't really push yourself out and we kind of wanted to trade you but we couldn't find anything good so is it really worth it at that point I don't think I don't think either side wants him to stay yeah I think it makes both sense and Russ let's go to a contender that's not gonna be a goal City all right Preston pop plays gaming Russ going to Miami to team up with Jimmy bug that seems to be the most likely outcome here it seems like it but I feel like a dark-horse team is gonna kind of come out of the come out of the Woodworks and get something going for Russell Westbrook but I think it makes a lot of sense and I think if he wants to go there Oklahoma City's gonna do everything they can to get them there alright folks make sure you are subscribed get us to a hundred and thirty K or at one twenty six five six three right now those are still kind of on the rookie number so that's up those numbers get us to a hundred thirty k Jimmy and I will do another awkward high-five like we did we hit once maybe we'll do oh I know I got I got a plan I will tell you but I got a plan it doesn't involve a high-five I don't know if I agree to this yes yes you do it's fine it's not bad you're fine so use hash tag Russ to get your questions on the show about Russell Westbrook that makes it a lot easier for producer Harris to actually find Harrison hit me mr. Harrison to find them use hash tag Russ get him up here on the show Tyrone says Roger go to the heat or the Knicks make sense yeah but the Knicks would have to wait until December to actually pull off a trade for them so I don't think it's the Knicks I think the I think I think the Knicks are kicking themselves right now after given all those big contracts away now the Russell Westbrook's available I think they would have held out and tried to wait acquire him somehow but I think the Heat are more likely next one Xavier or is it Xavier I was saying Saviour says Jimmy do you want Russ on the mass yes he does he absolutely does I promise you and all said anything else he says he wants Russ on Dallas let me say this no I do not want Russell Westbrook on the mat however if the Mavs somehow pulled off a trade for Russell Westbrook I would be I would be pretty ecstatic about it I mean I mean let's be realistic I would have been go home I'd be excited about it but I don't want them to do it I don't want them to do it does that make sense you know what I mean right yeah you're just a blind Homer Lee you're saying no I know what you mean you mean like Russell Westbrook is a fun player too why exactly would enjoy that you did something it's a good team fit exactly all right Connor neat who was a good match with Russ the Heat are the best fit yeah team wise I wonder if he means player wise like who would make a lot of sense about next to him that's tough I kind of think Butler's actually is a good fit for him I think he's a good look we've seen the two best fits to ransom Paul George I mean I can't get much better than Paul George as a fit Kevin Durant was also really great for him obviously Kawhi Leonard would be a great fit alongside Russell Westbrook they're like the most opposite players when it comes to you know how they act Robert de Leon says do you think Russ is a cancer and will ruin or maybe run a team down I don't think he's a cancer I think everybody that plays with Russ loves Russ I like as a person and he's not like a cancer in the locker room I do think he he hurts a lot of people's like overall careers like and how they're kind of helping alongside him so he's like a cancer sort of on the court but not off the court people like Russell Westbrook so I won't call him a cancer all right next up from Isaiah Bob who has a better attitude Chris or Russ I really don't like Chris Paul so I'm gonna say Russell Westbrook because I appreciate the fact I don't like Russell Westbrook that much either but I appreciate the fact that he's 100% competitive and like he would run through a brick wall for whatever team he's playing for and Chris Paul just kinda seems like a d-bag on the court I don't like him Karl Lohmann says Russ to the Cavs they could have a three starting point guard lineup it look if he's gonna go to the Cavs it's actually a team that I mentioned early early on as a dark-horse don't finish your thought I you have to trade Colin sexing at least or I don't think that trade garland I think they trade Sexton you go Sexton Shetty Osmond and like junior Smith and I think the money works then and you go Rustin and garland what here's why this doesn't happen cuz Russ says now uh yeah Thunder will not trade Russ to a place he doesn't want to be but what if he's like wait I like Kevin Love enough that I want to go back and team up with them because they played together in UCLA Touche okay there's a chance okay I play Devils okay here though all right Lauren kedai says Russ trade package and Adams to the Raptors for their last year contract player so like that basically becomes a swap of Kyle Lowry and Marc Gasol wish like I I think for the Oklahoma City Thunder why exactly yeah I'd say no the Thunder say no in this case even though we said the Raptor said no when they if they includes Jakob yep all right Chris sports talk if Russ goes to Miami are they championship contenders I don't think so I mean I think they're tops top of the yeast pretty close which doesn't that by definition make them a championship contender why do I wouldn't put the number one of these I think they're at them top four yes so that means dinner is in the top half seat in a conference contender even if it is the downer the down is east I think they are yes II know I've noticed say no I'll lean towards maybe a mix there okay okay all right Ryan do the Pistons have a better chance to land rust than the heat I don't think so I think the trade package the heat can put together and then the third team they could get involved with you know and getting dumped off some salary there makes the heat a better chance a better fit there for us I think the Pistons actually would be a really good fit though overall I think the Pistons are have a chance but I'd in the end I do think the Heat have the most likely chance I guess the great plurality chance they're face them and does Russ want to go to Detroit I don't know all right Mozart watching I don't know how you're alive but thank you rust to the Knicks nope I don't I don't see it they have to wait till December that's a big big big hurdle they're huge and and I don't think either side Russ or the Thunder want to wait until December to to ship them off because it's getting awkward now Matthew Holmes says hashtag Russ what if love goes to the Thunder in a Cleveland deal well then Russ definitely doesn't want to go to Cleveland like it Russ stays in Oklahoma City gets Kevin Love – oh good ship out Gallinari ship out gallo and like Adam well that's a lot of crikey fathoms I'm even gonna run through the trade package here I still don't think it works because what is what is Russ and Kevin Love get you in the Western Conference maybe fighting for an AIDS maybe an 8c and you got a ship out other pieces too so I do you actually Gallinari you can trade that gets you really close there you can throw and like and this is Kevin Love really a big upgrade over Gallo like Gallo yeah a really good player so it's a it's an interesting idea I don't know if it makes the most I'm not very possible all right Kevin berry rush should stay and they should trade Stephen Adams well that's not the problem at all that gets him that saves the money but that's kind of the point right that Leia that doesn't help the Thunder that makes them worse Russ is like entering the end of his prime like he wants to win right now you know I guess back half of his prime is what I should say I think he still got a couple more good years oh yeah all right folks again use hash tag Russ to get your questions about him on the show we're doing our Russell Westbrook only live Q&A here so use the hashtag Russ that makes it way easier for producer Harrison to actually find them here so again hash tag Russ Isiah Bob is he gonna choke in the playoffs again or prove himself I'll let you take this one I think he chokes I don't think it show cuz I think he's just he's not a great playoff player hey it's just natural like he's gotta have someone better alongside and that's why Paul George was great that's why Kevin Durant was great and then you asked his Jimmy Butler really that big of an upgrade in the playoffs Jimmy Butler steps up big so maybe ask Russ to do less I don't know I don't think Russ is worth it in the playoffs thunder and Grizzlies is a question about the Spurs says Russ to San Antonio oh Lord that would be interesting I what do you give up you give up like deshante Murray like Lonnie Walker and then a big contract like demar derozan maybe I think you pretty much have to include damar in any deal and then again did the Thunder want that I don't like well I guess where do you have one year left he's got is a player option this upcoming season I think so Tamar and I think you might have to include Patty Mills too just to make the money come closer like that oh it's almost exact but that's kind of expensive and this first have so many young guards all already yeah that's the route that they want to go and then if you trade tomorrow it's like okay it's Russ and LaMarcus Aldridge again where does that get you the Western called seven or eight seed yeah maybe maybe it six maybe if they both are hitting then try makes it more likely you get the 18 all right William a Hooper if Russ goes to the Mavs did it win a title it goes go gosh do they win a title uh no I don't think so I mean a lot of things that have to go right and with Russ there's too many question marks all right Christoph Schmitt says what happens with shrewder and Adams a possible trade package with Russ yeah that's so much money a lot of money maybe in a three-team deal and one of those other two gets sent off yeah I'm interested to see because it looks ruder Adams Roberson and Gallo I mean that's four big contracts who they wanted and apparently they want to keep Gallinari I don't know what they're gonna do like I don't know what their plan is going forward despite looking for trades for Russell Westbrook alright youngest is alt account big choice here says Russ to the Bucks or the win start the Wizards one first no no Wizards hard no bucks would be a lot of fun I don't know how they get it done I'm man the Bucks would be so money is really tight because you can't deal Middleton right now you can't deal Lopes until you get to the December timeframe if you throw in a Eric Bledsoe ersan Elias Silva and DJ Wilson you still got to cut out six million and then it's like why to the wider I want to do it there's so limited amount of teams I can actually make that can actually pull this off the Bucs would be great for us and I think it'd be a lot of fun to watch for the NBA I don't think it's good for the Thunder there's and and if the Bucks have picks to trade like now they're not gonna be worth much well back to the Wizards here 7 Adam P says Bradley Beal goes to the Oklahoma City Thunder I'd be a great fit but do the Thunder wants to give up picks right now I mean they have a lot but I don't think they want to give them up so I if Russ stays that's gonna be something they look into throwing shrewder and Roberson that works out from a money perspective and then you get if you give them pics to me okay possible but I don't think SGA and you stick with Russ idly that's not the Thunder want to go now me neither but I think that could work if they were still committed to Wayne this year which I just I don't think that's their plan their team Johnson 100 Russ is stuck nobody wants that dumb guy ego oh wow harsh harsh there but I'm not gonna call him a dumb guy but he does have an ego and it always shows out I guess like NBA players do yeah it's just reality all right Matthew Holmes says Westbrook enzyme would be fun to watch yes it would sure would what are you ok so let's think about the pelicans telling you go and do a drape package here okay Jackson Hays yes I think it has to start with Jackson Hayes Jackson haze maybe Alexander Walker I think you have to include true holiday to start from just just from a salary cap perspective okay drew holiday Jackson haze Nikki dogs Andrew Walker and I think that definitely gets it done from the thunders perspective I think so tonight I don't know if the pelicans do that though see I because then also what do with look maybe you have to bring in a third team and find a faker for blonds oh I forgot wall until we ship out Lonzo somewhere else you bring in Russ you keep reading keep favours good man that would get fun convoluted it but it's fun but Russ and Zion together oh my gosh all right piggy piggy if the Knicks get Ross is it just cuz they are desperate for stars ooh that's a good question Andy kinda yeah yeah yeah I mean yes all right next up hear from David Urbanski Russ going to the Sixers I think this is actually RTA ambition for the for the 76ers he's telling us that this is no question this is straight up just telling us now that would suck Ben Simmons and Russell Westbrook on the same team would be so bad icing that would be horribly bad now if n Simmons goes to the Thunder well then you have Ben Simmons an SGA like rule alright Christoph Schmitt I like Griffin Drummond and Russ together the problem is just it's in Detroit yep Detroit's not a good city it's just the truth all right Cave and Mary rusts and Adams get dealt to the pelicans for Drew holiday and that doesn't work out close from a money perspective no that's so much money going to New Orleans it doesn't make any sense you get rid of Adams you still have to include more money going back to the Thunder for it to work out I don't even know why produce Harrison's doing this one I am rust to China he's better than that alright Chris Jones rust to the bulls we thought about this one the biggest problem is they just you have to go but it can play off ball Otto Porter or Zach Lavine you have to throw in Cristiano Felicio and then what's your actual asset your major building block asset is it reporter I'm not sure now what if they include one of their first-round picks or a couple then maybe things get interesting but I don't think so alright poop dealer slinging here says Russ to the Timberwolves and cat gets out of Minnesota why wouldn't Minnesota do that though okay Karla thei towns is infinitely better than Russell Westbrook is right now and he has way more potential than Russell so Minnesota would never do that deal there's no way all right sports geeks with the heat make a rush straight today or should they wait a little bit I mean I hope it happens today just for the sake of it happening as soon as possible because free agency is getting boring but I think it might be in their favorite away there's no major rush I don't think yeah I think I agree alright next up from zach mud rust to the kings know what for well actually i guess are you trading away deer and fox then don't you want to just kind of want to build with fox and that from a money perspective you have to wait and then you have to include some combination of harrison barnes to wayne Dedmon trevor ariza corey joseph three of those guys can they even do those contracts or appealing no i doesn't get it done but I don't think the Kings making me and a lot of sense for Russ because the money and timing doesn't make sense alright Bob one two three lilica says or harden doesn't want Russ he takes way too many shots yeah that's probably true I don't know though I think they like each other so they would just make it work but I mean does does harden want Chris Paul on his team either I don't think so so alright guys make sure you are subscribed get us to a hundred and thirty K let's hit that magical number do you wanna know now what I think we should do what it's gonna spoil the joke but I'll say it anyway you go for the fist bump and I go and I go for the high-five we go full on awkwardness oh we're gonna do it on purpose yeah okay also guys if you have subscribed type s we'll do some shout outs here as you do the Russell Q&A so type s if you subscribe we'll get some shout outs here I see you guys in the comments like

you they go thanks make all pod to God whose some Sean Katie Lee Dez Nashawn heiped baby and swell see those people are all subscribed thanks for saying you guys make sure you're subscribed if you missed anything from our show the most overpaid players the top trades left it's a bad group or our Russell Westbrook Q&A stay tuned we'll put this on loop for you guys coming up right now hello folks and welcome into NBA now I am Tom that is Jimmy NBA free agency is still technically going but there aren't very many players left now with that in mind we're gonna take a look at the top available free agents the players who could still in theory help out a team well before we get to our top ten some other notable players out there for the most part the old guys yeah basically look Vince Carter I still think he's a service we'll bet serviceable back up it for some teams for a contender he had some good moments for the Toronto for one more year yeah go do something we want to see Vince Carter win if you're an NBA fan Pau Gasol coming off an injury he still wants to play again Jonathan Simmons is kind of fizzling out at this point Jamal Crawford like he finished the season with a fifty five point game and he can still be a good six-man and then there's there's one more guy in the list that I'm not doc all right guys everyone do it you're already doing it shout out cortex and the Jewish man and Tyler and swell Z and Michael they all fail heads acai before even brought this up Chris Jones that at Connor knee Diego Gonzalez Tommy H Dennis did it you're triggered by the phrase aza yeah you can you can say that not a big jaws up but look at all these Zaza's flowing in I absolutely love it right now so so more shoutouts here Billy Jefferson Trev Hawk Hawk Trev has it in there Tommy H Nathan Coyle after high school show has won in there as well Dennis has it let's see Connor Rodrigo thank you all for everything Zaza I love patrol and Jimmy here on the show you sure do now again there are still some players who really would have made our top ten probably yeah but they aren't technically free agents yet Dwight Howard it WA dala JR Smith Courtney Lee those guys will probably get bought out or waived or stretched waived but for now they are listed on the potential by outside not one of the top ten free agents out there yeah not yet but if they were I mean Dwight Howard would probably still be pretty high on this list he would be high all the issues that he comes with it'll be different this year I swear okay and Iguodala would also be really high up there junior Smith it would probably crack Thompson all these guys probably what I think at this point maybe not God maybe maybe maybe leave Courtney Lee off that off that list but might be better than our number ten guy so let's dive into our number 10 that is Sam Dekker look it it's it's a bad group yeah pretty rough he's kind of an undersized stretch for in terms of like size and body mass their can play some defense but if your stretch for part of that is stretching and shooting and that's not really an area that Dekker is great at just over 30 percent from deep last year that doesn't fit no not at all young though it could get better and that's the thing you kind of hold out hope that he does kind of improve it kind of stinks that the two wisconsin kids Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker just have not panned out whatsoever they played together on that team who was the kid this came out this year and literally can't shoot a big guy oh I know who you're talking about cuz he didn't draft shoot he was he was post unsigned free agent undrafted free agent but even app even an app that's it but yeah Sam Dekker he he just doesn't really fit today's NBA which you need out of your forwards alright folks I will make note today's July 9th apparently it is cow appreciation Dec yeah so if you watch some of our live for agency during the the midst of all the chaos before Kauai sign I don't remember who started it but someone just threw in cow and then everyone was typing in cow for that day it wouldn't stop today is cow free she a Shinde so type in cow we can appreciate all the cows everywhere go get yourself dress up like a cow get yourself some free chick go a fake or do that yeah maybe drink a cold glass of milk whatever whatever you want to do to appreciate cows today you do all kinds of cows people also throwing in Moo we appreciate it here let's go to number nine then Carmelo Anthony Jimmy there he is it pained me to put him on this top-10 list I I mean look this third point is the most perfect point to sum up what Carmelo Anthony is he's inefficient he's old he's out of shape and he can't play defense that's that that's it I mean he can still be a high-volume scorer on 20 25 shots maybe if he can accept his role off the bench but Melo is just he's number 9 for a reason and you can argue he shouldn't even be on this list but I should be on it you can argue that he shouldn't he's definitely one of the top 350 players in the NBA so in theory he is worthy of a roster spot the problem becomes what that bullet point was right Melo doesn't play defense he's not a great three-point shooter anymore there were clearly locker room issues for him with Houston lasted 10 games last year like that's a pretty big pretty clear sign there so people are already doing it do it baller or scrub mostly ballers but there are some who I've seen a lot of scrubs roll yeah ballers started then and all became the scrubs there hey you guys know if you've watched chats for us for more than you know a day you know that I think he's absolutely a scrub because that's what he is so 5.0 says he can still be both of you one-on-one stop being such an I'm not comparing Melo to myself there are like a probably 2 million plus people 2 billion plus people in the world that are better at basketball than me I'm comparing Carmelo Anthony to the rest of the NBA and compared to the rest the NBA Melo is a scrub I just think you're a hater planet simple maybe I am it also scrub smooth fence in number 8 Trey Lyles the Nuggets rescinded his qualifying offer after they made their deal for Jeremy grant he's not a good shooter but if you needed like a backup big he was kind of more of that 5/4 hybrid I think that makes sense so for Lyles I don't think he's gonna be a key addition here he's not gonna be a starter and he's not the guy I think that you saw never thought they were drafting but worthwhile figure yeah I mean when you talk did draft him he was supposed to be kind of this stretch for he started out that way 38% from three in his rookie season and then it just continued to decline and with that decline kind of be you know you got pushed out of the rotation he's kind of soft he's not gonna be able to defend the bigger big men down low he regrets this past year where he really did 30 plus 35 percent plus three points yeah that's kind of been closer to his career averages which is more like 33 ish and then 25% from deep this past year he ain't gonna get that done but look at 23 years old I think he's worth taking a risk on taking a flyer on him let's go back-to-back Tracey or Trey Burke up next and under Scott undersize score first point guard which makes sense for the bench but with a an overabundance of point guards out there already it's kind of tricky to find a spot for Trey Burke yeah again another guy that's still just 26 I mean is 26 years old he's still super young he came out of Michigan was supposed to meet his potential he never really did that but as like a backup point guard he's pretty solid I think if you need a guy just come in and give you some quick buckets off the bench that's what Trey Burke will do dude well enough as well he's a good enough 3-point shooter but getting into that mid-range and finishing from around there has kind of been his sweet spot and then you know defense you can't really ask me play defense the bench yeah and he's not a great distributor it's kind of like he's a point guard off the bench that needs a better distributor he's shooting guard and a point guards body exists kind of that that is unfortunate fit therefore Trey Berg all right folks if you're watching right now and you haven't already make sure you are subscribed get us to a hundred and thirty K that's the number we're up over 126 now approaching 127 130 is the big next number there so if you're watching on YouTube the link is there youtube.com slash at sports TV but you're also watching on youtube so just hit the big red button and pretty simple just subscribe there we appreciate it all very much so make sure you are subscribed let's move then to Lance Stephenson number six so the oldest 28 year old in the NBA was the joke we made before he went it feels like he feels like he's been around forever and he's only 28 but look he's kind of one of those you put him out there and he just does everything for you you can grab a rebound he can push the transition he can score the ball in different ways but he's not the Lance Stephenson from the Indiana Pacers which was still blowing in people's ears though that he can do that he is very good at he's good at being a pest good defender I think off the bench he's still a good option for a team it's just are you willing to take the risk on him with all of his quirks and chemistry sort of a crazy person but yeah she shoots good enough he plays good enough defense can rebound good enough and pass good enough there but everyone knows what Lance Stephenson is like yes he's Lance I don't really know what other way to describe it any fun I think you know again this is another guy I would take a flier on if I were a team looking for a backup three maybe a two but then he's kind of stuck in that role he can't I think they thought Indiana thought he could become a point guard at some point and he did never become that he's that to guard maybe a small forward all right so which would you guys rather watch the NBA Summer League or the MLB all-star game that's tonight the all-star game it is tonight last night was the home run derby didn't watch any that's what I watched it I the NBA Summer League because I enjoy the summer league a lot and a lot more than the MLB all-star game which I forgot was even this weekend maybe I'll put on the the all-star game tonight like on my laptop I play video games just have it in the background cuz he goes on for about six and half hours yeah let's see I see some MLB votes but for the most part here and this may surprise you the NBA show is voting for the summer league that yeah that's quite shuffle figure and I keep those votes flowing sir Malik has at number five Jeremy Lin Lin sanity is dead sure but Jeremy Lin's not bring him back I want him to have some kind of role on some kind of NBA team I don't know where he's gonna go he was better for the Hawks than he was for the Raptor cuz he played more he played the eight blade that he also played for the the Hornets which people forget even spent time there comments well when he was there he actually was pretty productive its injuries have kind of held him back and in playing time in Toronto is what really held him back who's better Jeremy Lin or scary Terry it's scary but Jeremy Lin had the better peak and the shooting though yeah it's not pretty point shooting again NBA teams and me especially they are so focused on the three-point shooting there and Lin's daily been a better three-point shooter other points in his NBA career but that drop off this year was a pretty big red flag plus the injury history in the past also there yeah I think the injuries is what scares teams away the most now because look when he once he got to Brooklyn New York excuse me and he played some with Houston he was playing really consistently and then it just continued to trickle down and trickle down and trickle down the heat would need to clear up a couple roster spots and save money how about Lin as a fit there as a backup point guard yeah if they don't end up landing Russell Westbrook they do Andres or maybe if they do yeah and they getting they dumped grow on drug it somewhere else I like Lin as a backup for a team keep him healthy I think he can still provide valuable minutes that's what that said number four Justin holiday he does offer some three indie play he does this is actually a guy that I think I'm a little higher on than you might be Tom I like but I let you put him up there hi yeah I like Justin holiday I think he's a really good defender and a reliable scorer he's also got long arms and he can finish around the rim which that explained everything it makes him sound like the best NBA player in the world but he does have some good minutes in him Memphis utilized him just enough but I think a real contender could actually use him even better I like him look the numbers are maybe a bit inflated because Memphis was not good last year but ten points four rebounds offers quality defense and can shoot I am a little surprised there hasn't been more interest around holiday yeah maybe I don't know what it might be maybe holiday thinks he's gonna get a bigger contract than he is I think he's more of a mid-level slash you know minimum kind of guy I think he could get more than the minimum but at least I think he could at least get a mid-level in the NBA alright so who would you rather sign type H for holiday elf or Lin I think originally we have Lin above it and then we're kind of like actually you know what let's go with holiday so our both our votes are for H yeah I'm taking Justin holiday just for his versatility as opposed to Jeremy Lin just playing that point guard role NIC Tracy says age 7 Adam says age Billy says age mr. robot says aza there are some L votes flowing in but I think the H is definitely have it here on that front let's go that's in number three Kenneth Faried who really did Jimmy have a major bounce-back here for Houston Kenneth Faried when he was in Denver was like one of my favorite players yeah he had some monster games in monster year I like the bôla' he's a high-energy big but then fell off when he went to Brooklyn cuz they didn't play him they didn't want to play him and then he got traded and then he got bought out and then e1 to Houston and like you said had a good bounce-back year he's a big part of what they tried to do in the NBA Playoffs as a bench guy yeah near the end that previous year and for a good portion before he went to Houston though I kind of thought he was done yeah I just don't think he had any more but then he went back to Houston only in tight with his time in Houston he actually averaged almost 13 points per game and eight rebounds so again if you need that high energy big like you described to the kind of that 5'4 guy Freed's makes a lot of senses yeah and look undersized yeah that's right six foot eight so I think that's kind of what bouncing out because a bench big yeah I mean if you're if you're undersized and you can't shoot the three which four eats made ten into his entire career then you're not gonna stick around the league nowadays but for Reid as a backup you know sign me up I think you'd be good for a team we'll see where he ends up and folks we have a giveaway for you from our friends over at my book yet over to chat sport's comm slash NBA now use the promo code on your screen chat NBA once you sign up and deposit and place your first bet go ahead in the email promo at chat sports

Jersey like that I just want the antenna comfo on the back of back of my diggities I folks again that is chat sports comm slash NBA now promo code is chat NBA then email promo at chat sports.com move into number two Kyle Korver recently waived by the Suns that was not a surprise there's going to be interest in him because if you think I can just shoot corner threes Kyle Korver is your dude yeah I don't think he's gonna be on the open market very long because shooting isn't valuable in this league and it doesn't decline with his age I mean the older he gets I mean he's still got a great shot it doesn't matter if you just put him in the corner he's gonna knock down a three-pointer I did that for Utah got sent to Memphis and got sent to Phoenix and then got bought out or waived excuse me and now we'll see where he ends up definitely going to end up with a contender though shout out whoever it was that asked us how many more times Korver would be trading we're like now II think he's done we'll just get bought out and then like two days later he got traded to the Phoenix Suns there which we were wrong what are you gonna do where do you think Korver ends up here I've had him penciled in as a Lakers backup for so long now but they have a lot of guards actually they do and they just signed KCPD back they're kind of filling up I like the Bucs I that's one of the teams that's actually looking at them and makes a lot of sense man think the Sixers as a fit those are the three I mean those are the three teams and I uh I think I think he ends up with the Lakers but I want to see him go to the mill walk let's move that to number one that is Kelly over a junior who I think pretty clearly is the best region left out there it's a huge drop-off after Kelly Huber I think this guy's gonna get actually a good contract not just a mid-level not just a minimum kind of thing I think he thought he was gonna get more than he has on the open market and that's why he's staying on the market right now I don't know what he's gonna fetch for the rest he is a restricted free agent here's the problem for obray there's nobody else out there with money right now Dallas Dallas is it kind of like it and I think Dallas would like a player like uber eight but he doesn't really fit Rick Carlisle style you know whether it's his attitude and just the fact that he can't really shoot all that well I mean 32 percent from three is respectable but it's not that's what holds him back though from being a true full on three and D player but 15 points a game played well for the Suns the Suns offseason maneuvering I think has been to sign Ricky Rubio and maintain the cat polled for uber so they can go over the cap to reassign him or match any offer sheet that he ends up getting out there and if that's the case I think that makes sense makes sense for Phoenix in the end I think uber eight ends up back there but I think it might be just at the qualifying offer when he says you know what next year it's a bad free agency class let's try again as a true up as a true unrestricted I think you might be on to something there I like that all right so we had over eight number one but folks let us know in the comments section who do you think is the best unsigned free agent let us know if it's not a Bray is it Korver for you then that's so of course that's what we had a to but that's who I have it to but I don't know how long he stays there because there's other guys that are about to get bought out that I think take over that buy out guys who is it for you biggie I I'm gonna say Dwight Howard okay he right there from Jimmy folks let us know what you guys think in the comments section let's move into some more live Q&A use hash tag NBA that makes it a lot easier for producer Harrison to actually find them and bring them up on screen so again hash tag NBA is the key here we'll start off with fook well LeBron win another championship I think he wins at least two more before he retires that's why I'll say I think the under on – I'll go with one oh I think he's got one more in him I think it's gonna be a battle between the Lakers and Clippers – I for the next four years potentially all right you old Aman says Korver to the Lakers that was our prediction my prediction it's not where I want him to go I'd rather see him go to Milwaukee but I think he ends up in LA all right Cassandra litter says who's gonna win the west Clippers I got Clippers – hey sorry Lakers fans who remain big mad at me it's inevitable later at what going down if the Lakers aren't even second they might not even be third West is loaded sorry like fans I backed it wants to know where the bowls end up next season make sure you're subscribed my friend cuz we posted our Eastern Conference playoff projections that's coming up the way they come up tonight that's going out tonight yeah I forgot about that so stay tuned for that that comes out tonight got we filmed it yesterday on our live show VOD comes out tomorrow so there you go camera tonight once is it tonight thank god this is not a cut and it's only for this Cameron H Westbrook – the heat that's like the only viable option it's looking like right right there I think that's that's the most likely yeah all right Tyler wants to know if Dwight Howard is a good fit for the Warriors I forgot about the Warriors this year it'll be different guys this is the year no they just got Kevon Looney they just got Willie cauley-stein there's no need I mean unless for some reason they just really impress him or he really impresses them I don't think so Benjamin Robin wants to know where JR Smith will end up I'm gonna say the Clippers if they're well let's see if they filled up all the roster spots I think they might have like one more but it's the Lakers I know rich Paul baby I said Wallace Italy that's what happens I just want to stay away from the Lakers one more time all right 7 Adam P Blazers still have to free roster spots who should they get that's a good question they lost shooting with Seth Curry they haven't really added a whole lot of shooting in this office is on is back I kind of look for a defensive wing type if you can actually find that guys you lost a Meenu and that was a good one Lance they want I don't think Lance fits Portland Melo nope uh Melo I like I like Korver in Portland I don't think it'll happen but I would like Korver in Portland I think that give use a backup point court how about Lin or Burke oh I like Trey Burke yeah I like Tripp well Anthony Simon's that's who they want to be I don't know I don't know what Portland wants with those two Rob's response is the biggest questions alright drift Drex who do you think will be the MVP kind of like Curry's chances actually I like Curry's chances but I'm taking me honest I think Yanis will shoot like 33 percent from three and just be great alright folks it's Taco Tuesday so what is your favorite taco you can't say the taco that I know you're thinking of right now but we will talk about tacos on Tuesdays only ah chewy or not chewy side Torchy's tacos trailer park trashy well what do you put in your taco because breakfast taco is also fantastic by the way they are good I mean at torchie's that the trailer park is like lightly breaded chicken and then they have this like spicy ranch sauce and then queso and rice and beans on the side and a little bit of sweet corn oh I'm hungry now we can watch yeah all right Marvin Lee says does hold on does Dwight Howard come to the Dallas oh lord have mercy I don't know what is in caps lock I will scream your question I don't know what was more annoying the fact that it was in caps lock the fact that you yelled it or the fact that this is actually a question because no he doesn't come to Dallas not it's not even considered all right give me big mad about Dwight Howard Dallas questions by the way so keep those coming all right yeah that's the no I know oh come on if the Spurs make the playoff this season no team will ever break their record it is pretty insane how long they've been away often time what's the what's the 96 to 97 no it was the first year when Pavich took over as the interim they didn't make it that year and they've not met they haven't missed it since then that's the question alright Jeremy Anderson wants to know about Jamal Crawford to the Lakers um I don't think Jamal Crawford is that type of player like I think he wants to go somewhere where he can just ball I can just play and I don't know where that'll be yeah get some more questions here ran man two to one who has the better chance to make the playoffs the kings or the pelicans first of all I don't think either of them make the NBA playoffs but if there is a better chance I got to give it to the king I'm going Kings to here because they were closer last year and I love that with the pelicans have done this offseason but it's not enough I like that last question that avoiding his own criticisms here like a loser dougie Jones will Amari take a vet minimum with the Knicks uh no they already site three power forwards I think that that dougie here once Amari wants to go to a winner yeah New York like chambers there alright folks use hash tag rust to get your questions about Russell Westbrook on the show we will get to those here we'll do a full giant Russell Westbrook you a so use hashtag Russ to get those questions on the show but first almost something different coming up here all right folks once again I am Tom Downey that is Jimmy Crowder let's take a look here at the most overpaid players in the NBA feel free to send all of your hate to me on Twitter at what going Downey I promise to engage and not just be a smartass I'm gonna be a smartass there in the end so first up some dishonorable mentions Gordon Hayward it was not the same guy last year high I mean look they paid him they paid to Utah Jazz Gordon Hayward and he suffered a bad injury it's not his fault he's just not worth thirty three million dollars anymore maybe he works back up to it but I don't think so I will make note here there is no Terry Rozier I push for him I was outvoted by producer Harrison and my co-host here Jimmy Kent Bazemore is on there at least for now Jiang mean he me Solomon Hill let's move out to number 10 on our list that's Evan Turner has one year at just under 19 million left which ever there's a fine player but ain't no universe in which Evan Turner is worth an almost 19 million per year no especially considering the fact that he's not a 3-point shooter he's this point forward yes you can't shoot and he's kind of slow and he can't really defend that well I don't know 19 million dollars now he's with this I mean come on come on brutal you know now he's with the Atlanta Hawks where I guess he's playing that backup point guard position he's just not worth that much money anymore I mean I think there was a what was he the number two overall pick one time yeah yeah not worth the Turner of course was flipped for Kent Bazemore who made our or made our dishonorable mentions listen alright let's stick with the Hawks here a common theme on this one Eastern Cummings a lot of bad contracts Otis yeah Allen Crabbe one year eighteen point five million the Hawks took him on as a literal salary dump from Brooklyn yeah look he was a victim of that 2015-2016 offseason not a victim a beneficiary yeah I guess I should say that of getting overpaid you know because he was restricted at the time and the Brooklyn Nets had to pay up and they did and they got him away he's a good three-point shooter still but he doesn't play anymore you played 43 games last season under 10 points and under 38% three-point shooting is fine but that's like you know five ish maybe up to ten max million per year not approaching that twenty million dollar figure alright folks different kind of question here for you we had to veto Mitch's Krabs joke better flavor of milk type Seaford chocolate s for strawberry it's such an obvious answer but Tom doesn't know what the right answer is it's chocolate I had if you take urine III am fully aware of the fact that like 90% 85% of the votes here are going to be for chocolate I I I respect the fact that the C's are winning I know I'm in the minority I don't like chocolate milk all that much so I'll go with strawberry well okay you're wrong strawberry flavored water fun fact okay energy back well like strawberry more than chocolate I know I'm weird I know I know scroll boys schoolboy agrees with you he's touched strawberry I think he's the only one typing yes right now he's just typing it over and over again pone star 2 for 8 says don't be gross stop see ya that's fair let's move that's in number eight we are three for three by the way of the most overpaid players have all been traded this offseason that's Hassan Whiteside at number eight one year 27 million for a player who wasn't happy with the Heat last year and has some major attitude problems there was a time in which he was definitely worth this contract oh he was one of the best room protectors in the league he's pulling down double-digit rebounds every single night he doesn't I mean he still does the rebounding he still kind of protects the rim but he averaged a double-double but like inefficient double-double fish and double-double and he said he was last year frankly a bit of a cancer yeah I mean the chemistry is she was on and off the court or a big problem complaining about not getting playing time when really BAM Adebayo deserves his time I mean he's in Portland now I think he knows his role is gonna be behind use of Newark itch or until Norwich returns maybe even starting for a little while but he's not the player he was when he got paid that contract so that's why he's overpaid now let's move Benson number seven that is Chris Paul who again this is just for this upcoming season most overpaid players but three years left on his deal 124 point 1 million that's a lot for a player who is I think very clearly on the decline I mean yeah like he can't defend anybody in this this league now he's undersized played 58 games last season and only played 58 games this season before that reserve problem injuries are an issue and again it's not his fault that he's hurt but it still factors into the fact that he's overpaid and you know now he's a guy that needs to ball in his hands but so does James Harden maybe if they go make a move for Russell Westbrook he that's three ball handlers like that need the ball in their hands to succeed and Chris Paul just doesn't really fit it it's a big issue when the tied for second highest paid player in the NBA puts up 15 and eight that's not bad by any means yeah like if Chris Paul was on a contract worth half of that he wouldn't be close to me to this list right right but only Steph Curry makes more money per year than Chris Paul does Russell Westbrook is try it is tied at that figure there so what will Houston do with cp3 type T for trade k for keep I think for this upcoming year he's a keeper I think they keep him because I have to not because they want to they're gonna try to trade him they're gonna look every look everywhere to dump his salary as think they're gonna be able to get it done unless know what you guys folk there think there Wow terrible there it's like tea for trade kafir keep the caves I think have here in the chat okay yeah I think you're right let's move that's in number six Bismack Biyombo one year seventeen million and he makes like no impact on this for the Hornets four point four points per game as literally eight he got overpaid cuz he had a great run with the Toronto Raptors like he looked like one of the best centers in the league a high-energy guy off the bench and he hasn't been that since then you know he got drafted I believed by the Hornets and then went to Toronto and the way back to the Hornets they hoped he could be what they drafted him for he hasn't been at all you are paying seventeen million for this that that's it and fifty thousand arable fifty-three total games he actually played in like he doesn't play he's either hurt or they just don't play them so seventeen million dollars is absolutely ridiculous there's no justification for the money that Bismack Biyombo is getting at this point in his career for reference he is among the top fifteen highest-paid centers in the NBA he makes more than Clint capela does who else is on that list below that uh valence Eunice makes less although that's that because he signed a pretty cheap dealership Newark kitchen Brook Lopez DeAndre Jordan and then of course all the young players right tsubasa eight and all those flex players there so that's a lot of money to pay for a not even a good backup setter Nadia Batson same number five Andrew Wiggins a four-year hundred and twenty two million dollar deal was paid on the potential has not reached it yet no I mean nowhere close he he was paid in like the the from what I heard the off C or the the front office was like hey Wiggins if you promise to work really really hard we're gonna go ahead and give you this huge contract and so that you can live up to your potential he's like yeah just give me five years hundreds or whatever million dollars I'll make it happen he hasn't eighth among small forwards he's making about twenty seven point five this upcoming sitting there that's ahead of guys like Boyan Bogdanovich you just got paid right right yeah look it's rough he's not what he supposed to be I mean look his numbers look great like all paid Bruton points a game oh that that's great but it's not efficient none of its efficient and he doesn't play defense actly he's lazy and in his body like he can't play he just can't play defense against bigger guys cuz he's so skinny everyone says trade in the comments I mean if they can dump him that'd be great I think a change of scenery would do him well I do think he went somewhere else he could be a really productive player move that's a number for another small Ford who makes more than Andrew or makes less than Wiggins just barely here that is Otto Porter he's not a bad player and I'm my finisher thought when I saw this one like I think Otto Porter is too high on this list and then we went and looked at the numbers more in depth there you know shoot well from three but you're gonna pay 27 plus million for 14 points per game yeah I mean it's rough look and they traded for him obviously the Chicago Bulls did and now I think they're kind of stuck with them I still think he could probably start on a lot of teams I do think he's a starting caliber player that's not the question here the question is is he worth his contract and the answer is absolutely not it's not who is the better player it's who's getting paid too much you know and that's Otto Porter's problem he's getting paid more to be a thirteen point nine point four game score right it's not worth there's a debate raging right now in the comments section that says porter or or andrew who's you rather have on your team with their contracts included of course i think i oh man cuz porter only has two years left that's a factor um but I think Wiggins potential if he traded team but if it's just for one season Wiggins I'd take Wiggins I think I think he can still be good I still believe in his potential alright folks make sure you are subscribed to your Guinness to a hundred and thirty K and look at these votes you're flowing in people are much thinking Porter but there are some Wiggins votes there so yeah maybe we're in disagreement with the consensus there but make sure you are subscribed you're watching on youtube right now over a thousand watching I know not everyone watching is subscribe so hit us up with that subscription button we'd appreciate that there it is that hundred and thirty K bar number three though pains me dearly because I love John Wall but here's the reality oh man seventy three games the past two seasons tore his Achilles for a player that heavily relies on athleticism probably gonna miss all this upcoming season and now he's on a four-year 171 million dollar deal I don't know if you saw a picture but there's a picture though the Wizards recently posted and it was of him working out and he's gotten pretty Jack like he's putting on muscle but if you're a guy that is reliant on explosiveness and you just tore your Achilles you don't want to put on muscle like that's the last thing you wanna do you want to continue to stay you know trim and then that's not what he's doing so he's probably out for this whole next season for the injury John Wall isn't close to this list not even know doesn't know we're near him because he's a great player I mean one of the best point guards in the league if he's healthy but coming back from an Achilles injury almost never brings you back to what you were and you're paying him for the next four years and now you've got him counting thirty eight million when he's probably not gonna play this year at least I mean he could be out even long that's rough that is top for money for point guards there and who knows what he's gonna look like coming off that Achilles injury all right folks we've got a giveaway for you from our

jersey just email promo at chat sports.com move then said number two I think a very clear number two by the way Nick Batum two years 52.7 was once a pretty good player now just wildly overpaid I think these these top two and then everybody else is a huge drop-off I agree I mean John wall's is pretty close because of the injury but based on play and contract he's top two were pretty obvious Nick Batum is just I mean there's one time where he was he was never worth this contract and all we ought to see I don't think close-ish – he was close to it but he's always I mean he's been overpaid since he got this deal and you can see why with the numbers I mean it's not good he makes more than Victor Oladipo makes yeah Gary Harris makes yeah then JJ Redick makes there are all kinds of guards and wings there that make less than Nick Batum Stu 25 million 25.5 opinion this year for less than 10 points a game it's bad it's like he's a great defender time to make up for it either you know no and he's still got two years left so you're still paying him for like this year and next year if you can't figure out a way dumped um I think he has a player option on that second year and obviously he's gonna pick it up because he's not gonna make anywhere close to that money here in a couple years and so Hornets have several players on this list here so who was the worst owner governor governor in the NBA because Jordan has given us pretty bad deal it looks like Michael Jordan right now but I don't know it's not it's not him but if we're basing it off this James Dolan it's James Dolan pretty I'll quit right now don't sell the team team make the Knicks average again fired all the team yeah let us know the comment section there I see Dolan people putting in LeBron which is pretty funny New York Knicks which is that shames Dolan's burner account says me absolute the correct answer there is James Dolan number one though the worst contracts for this season by far at least until gets bought out Chandler Parsons one year twenty five million that has been the worst contract for like two years in a row three three years in a row he's played a total of 95 games in three seasons combined like that's that's horrible guys remember there's 82 games in an NBA season so that's just math that I mean that's just math that's all it is right there quick math but dude Parsons can't say healthy as knees or are the biggest issue there was a one time where he was a really good player there was at one point where he was you know it could be a small forward he can he can handle the ball he was a power forward at the same time in six foot ten and then the issues clicked kicked in and everything fell apart for Chandler Parsons he is the forty fifth highest player in the NBA here which in theory and of course were key contracts kind of skew this but that means he should be one of the set like the second best player on a team or at least the third best I mean a top 50 guy in the NBA I should play never he's ever never on the court when he does play he's not even that great there John says the best three times the worst contract of the year it's a no-brainer here Parsons is the worst contract the Hawks have three of our top ten yeah Parsons Turner and Crabbe the good news is they traded for all of them because they're an asset acquisition mode which is yeah absolutely i mean i mean this is what brooklyn did and it obviously worked for brooklyn they got back to the playoffs quickly after all that stuff so that's what Atlanta's going for and you know Chandler Parsons isn't gonna be there next season I don't imagine he won't will be but Turner and Crabb actually will probably stick a stick around on the roster so we had Parsons number one we won't hear from you guys to who is the most overpaid player in the NBA let us know in the comments sections I think Parsons though wins it just clearly he absolutely should be who would you say has been the most overpaid this offseason Terry Rozier pretty like what are on this list what I always I couldn't do almost had him on this list and now we had to leave them on the Brennan ater says wall but there are Parsons and some Chris Paul votes coming if someone says Dario Sark's like first a rookie contract on a very cheap contract there but let us know what you guys think in the comments section alright folks it is time for our Russell Westbrook Q&A everyone's act isn't about everyone's talking about them because everyone wants to know what happens there so this little QA dedicated only to Russell Westbrook so make sure you use hashtag Russ to get up here on screen makes it a lot easier for producer Harrison to find all these comments that are flowing in use hashtag Russ first up from Antonio Russ and Korver on the Golden State Warriors throw handling Russell Westbrook and Golden State would be a nightmare a nightmare like you literally would have to make curry into a spot-up shooter and what D'Angelo Russell just becomes most your relevant player in the NBA this small three guards lineup that would be so miserably bad now Korver I'm sure maybe but Korver is not going to Golden State I can't imagine that'd be bad all right shrim Hawk Hawk Trev what do you think the Rockets need to do to get Russ and do you like Zaza Hopkins and Zaza milk what in the world is going on I love you guys never change um you you threw together a rocket straight hit I don't with it they're pretty closer you have to do Clinton if you if you're clean if you're keeping Chris Paul cuz I don't even under want that contract so I assume they're not going to take any deal involving Chris Paul unless it's maybe if you throw in like a first-round pick so it doesn't make sense I think in the end for Rockets it's capela Gordon and then salary cap filler here and sir of Isaiah hearten scene and like a Gary Clark but that makes it work there plus I assume maybe a draft pick as well all right magic Brown better career Russ or cp3 ooh that's a good question because I mean Russ still has a little bit of ways to go I still have stuff to do I think I'm gonna go thrust I think I'm gonna go Russ also he wanted an MVP he's been to an NBA Finals Mike Ross has never done that era Chris Paul has never done that I think I and Chris pulled the triple-double I mean the Russell Wow I'm getting mixed up Russell Westbrook their triple doubles like in the efficient years was incredible I take R Us over Chris Paul you know nine times out of ten all right cool back again says will rush averaged a triple-double again he's done it back-to-back years or is it back-to-back it was back-to-back years um I think it depends on where he ends up but I think he will I think it'll just be a little less points per game and then pretty equal rebounds and assists possibly alright Isaiah Bob says Russ to Toronto for Pascal Sayaka Oh interesting because this is coming from a Raptors fan cuz the Raptors did not want to include siakam in a deal for Russell Westbrook I'm checking the numbers here um they still got SIOC I'm so cheap you still have to include Kyle Lowry I understand I think Toronto said says no I think Toronto says no as well but I I think it could be interesting now let's say they do get Russ then what else you have yeah you don't have me you have Martin stolen serge ibaka all right we'll Fischer any chance that the Pistons get rust I think they do make sense there I don't think that that that's a good fit in terms of of the Pistons and Tony Snell Reggie Jackson if they want to wait to Muncie maybe you can throw in like how from in to really make the money work right now I think the Pistons could could pull it off I think they could I think Doom booyah still unsigned so if they wanted to throw him in and give them a nice young piece you pair up to Oklahoma guys Russ and Blake Griffin and and then go Andre Drummond in the middle it's a competitive team in the Eastern Conference all right dougie Jones what if he just stay we've never seen a full season of just Russ haven't we though like when Oladipo was there it was basically just Russ like Oladipo was not the old Depot he is this season it didn't work out that well if he stays then it's just awkward like then it's like okay you kind of wanted out but you didn't really push yourself out and we kind of wanted to trade you but we couldn't find anything good so was it really worth it at that point I don't think I don't think either side wants him to stay yeah I think it makes both sense and Russ let's go to a contender that's not gonna be oh all right Preston pop plays gaming Russ going to Miami to team up with Jimmy Bob that seems to be the most likely outcome here it seems like it but I feel like a dark-horse team is gonna kind of come out of the come out of the Woodworks and get something going for Russell Westbrook but I think it makes a lot of sense and I think if he wants to go there Oklahoma City's gonna do everything they can to get them there all right folks make sure you are subscribed get us to a hundred and thirty KR at one twenty six five six three right now those are still kind of on the rookie number so that's up those numbers get us to 130k Jimmy and I will do another awkward high-five like we did we met once maybe we'll do oh I know dude I got I got a plan I will tell you but I got a plan it does involve a high five I don't know if I agree to this uh yes yes you do it's fine it's not bad so use hash tag Russ to get your questions on the show about Russell Westbrook that makes it a lot easier for producer Harris to actually find Harrison to me who's Harrison to find them use hash tag Russ get him up here on the show Tyrone says Roger go to the heat or the Knicks make sense yeah but the Knicks would have to wait until December to actually pull off a trade for them so I don't think it's the Knicks I think they I think I think the Knicks are kicking themselves right now after giving all those big contracts away now the Russell Westbrook's available I think they would have held out and tried to wait to acquire him somehow but I think the Heat are more likely next one Xavier or is it Xavier I was saying Savior says Jimmy do you want Russ on the mass yes he does he absolutely does I promise you and all said anything else he says he wants Russ on Dallas let me say this no I do not want Russell Westbrook on the mat however if the Mavs somehow pulled off a trade for Russell Westbrook I would be I would be pretty ecstatic about it I mean I mean let's be realistic I would have been go home I'd be excited about it but I don't want them to do it I don't want them to do it does that make sense you know what I mean right yeah you're just a blind Homer Lee you're saying no I know what you mean you mean like Russell Westbrook is a fun player too why exactly would enjoy that you did something it's a good team exactly all right Connor neat who was a good match with Russ the Heat are the best fit yeah team wise I wonder if he means player wise like who would make a lot of sense about next to him that's tough I kind of think Butler's actually is a good fit for him I think he's a good look we've seen the two best fits Durant and Paul George I mean I can't get much better than Paul George has a fit a Kevin Durant was also really great for him obviously Kawhi Leonard would be a great fit alongside Russell Westbrook they're like the most opposite players when it comes to you know how they act Robert de Leon says do you think Russ is a cancer and rule ruin or maybe run a team down I don't think he's a cancer I think everybody that plays with Russ loves Russ I like as a person and he's not like a cancer in the locker room I do think he he hurts a lot of people's like overall careers like and how they're kind of helping alongside him so he's like a cancer sort of on the court but not off the court people like Russell Westbrook so I won't call him a cancer all right next up from Isaiah Bob who has a better attitude Chris or Russ I really don't like Chris Paul so I'm gonna say Russell Westbrook because I appreciate the fact I don't like Russell Westbrook that much either but I appreciate the fact that he's 100% competitive and like he would run through a brick wall for whatever team he's playing for and Chris Paul just kind of seems like a d-bag on the court I don't like him all right Karl Lohmann says most of the calves they could have a three starting point guard lineup it look if he's gonna go to the calves it's actually a team that I mentioned early early on as a dark horse don't finish your thought I you have to trade Collin Sexton at least or I don't think that trade garland I think they trade Sexton you go Sexton Shetty Osmond and like jr. Smith and I think the money works then and you go russet and garland boy here's why this doesn't happen cuz Russ says it out uh yeah thunder will not trade Russ to a place he doesn't want to be but what if he's like wait I like Kevin Love enough that I want to go back and team up with them because they played together in UCLA Touche okay there's a chance okay I played doubles okay here though alright Lauren today says Russ trade package and Adams to the Raptors for their last year contract player so like that basically becomes a swap of Kyle Lowry and Marc Gasol wish I think for the Oklahoma City Thunder why exactly yeah I'd say no the Thunder say no in this case even though we said the Raptor said no when they if they includes Jakob all right Chris sports talk if Russ goes to Miami are they championship contenders I don't think so I mean I think they're tops top of the yeast pretty close which doesn't that by definition make them a championship contender why do I wouldn't put the number one of these I think they're at them top four yes so that means a pop dinner is in the top half seat in a conference championship contender even if it is the downer the downest I think they are yes II know I'm gonna say no I'll lean towards maybe it's there okay okay all right Ryan do the Pistons have a better chance to land rust than the heat I don't think so I think the trade package the heat could put together and then the third team they could get involved with you know and get dumped off some salary there makes the heat a better chance a better fit there for us I think the Pistons actually would be a really good fit though overall I think the Pistons are have a chance but I'd in the end I do think the Heat have the most likely chance I guess a great plurality chance they're face them Russ when I go to Detroit I don't know all right Mozart watching I don't know how you're alive but thank you Russ to the Knicks nope I don't I don't see it uh they have to wait till December that's a big big big hurdle they're huge and and I don't think either side Russ or the Thunder want to wait until December to to ship him off because it's getting awkward now Matthew Holmes says hashtag Russ what if love goes to the Thunder in a Cleveland deal well then Russ definitely doesn't want to go to Cleveland like it Russ stays in Oklahoma City gets Kevin Love – oh good ship out Gallinari you ship out Gallo and like Adam well that's a lot of rocky fathoms I mean they run through the trade package I still don't think it works because what is what is Russ and Kevin Love get you in the Western Conference maybe waiting for an aids maybe an 8c and you got a ship out other pieces too so how do you actually you Gallinari you can trade that gets you really close there you can throw in like and this is Kevin Love really a big upgrade over Gallo like Gallo yeah a really good player so it's a it's an interesting idea I don't know if it makes the most not very possible all right Kevin berry rush should stay and they should trade Stephen Adams well that's not the problem at all that gets him that saves the money but that's kind of the point right that Leia that doesn't help the Thunder that makes them worse Russ is like entering the end of his prime like he wants to win right now you know I guess back half of his prime is what I should say I think he's still got a couple more good years oh yeah all right folks again the use hash tag Russ to get your questions about him on the show we're doing our Russell Westbrook only live Q&A here so use the hashtag Russ that makes it way easier for producer Harrison to actually find them here so again hash tag Russ Isiah Bob is he gonna choke in the playoffs again or prove himself I'll let you take this one I think he chokes III I'm thinking chokes I think he's just he's not a great playoff player hey it's just natural like he's gotta have someone better alongside him that's why Paul George was great that's why Kevin Durant was great and then you asked his Jimmy Butler really that big of an upgrade in the playoffs Jimmy Butler steps up big so maybe you asked for us to do less I don't know I don't think Russ's is worth it in the playoffs Thunder and Grizzlies is a question about the Spurs says Russ to San Antonio oh Lord that would be interesting I what do you give up you give up like deshante Murray like Lonnie Walker and then a big contract like demar derozan maybe I think you pretty much have to include damar in any deal and then again did the Thunder want I don't know like well I guess where does he have one year left he's got it is a player option this upcoming season I think so tomorrow and I think you might have to include Patty Mills too just to make the money come cool like that oh it's almost exact but that's kind of expensive and the Spurs have so many young guards all already yeah that's the route that they want to go and and then if you trade tomorrow it's like okay it's Russ and LaMarcus Aldridge again where does that get you in the Western called seven or eight seed yeah maybe a six maybe if they both are hitting then try makes it more or less than you get the 18 all right William a Hooper if Russ goes to the Mavs did it win a title goes go posh do they win a title uh no I don't think so I mean a lot of things that have to go right and with Russ there's too many question marks all right Christoph Schmitt says what happens with shrewder and Adams a possible trade package with Russ that that's so much money a lot of money maybe in a three-team deal and one of those other two gets sent off yeah I'm interested to see because it looks shrewder Adams Roberson and Gallo I mean that's four big contracts who they wanted and apparently they want to keep Gallinari I don't know what they're gonna do like I don't know what their plan is going forward despite looking for trades for Russell Westbrook alright jungus is alt account big choice here says Russ to the Bucs or the Winstar with the Wizards one first no no Wizards hard no bucks would be a lot of fun I don't know how they get it done I'm man the Bucks would be so my money is really tight because you can't deal Middleton right now you can't deal Lopes until you get to the December timeframe if you throw in a Eric Bledsoe ersan Elias Silva and DJ Wilson you still gotta cut out six million and then it's like why to the boys don't want to do it there's so limited amount of teams that can actually make that can actually pull this off the bucks would be great for us and I think it'd be a lot of fun to watch for the NBA I don't think it's good for the Thunder there's and and if the Bucks have picks to trade like they're not gonna be worth much well back to the Wizards here 7 Adam P says Bradley Beal goes to the Oklahoma City Thunder be a great fit but do the Thunder wants to give up picks right now I mean they have a lot but I don't think they want to give them up so I if Russ stays that's gonna be something they look into throw a true Durant and Roberson that works out from a money perspective and then you get if you give up picks to me okay possible but I don't think Rucker SGA you stick with Russ I'd only that's not the Thunder want to go now me neither but I think that that could work if they were still committed to Wayne this year which I just I don't think that's their plan their team Johnson 100 Russ is stuck nobody wants that dumb guy ego oh wow harsh harsh there but I'm not gonna calm a dumb guy but he does have an ego and it always shows out I guess like NBA players do yeah it's just reality all right Matthew Holmes says Westbrook in Zion would be fun to watch yes it would sure would what are you ok so let's think about the pelicans when you come do a trade package here okay Jackson Hayes guest I think it has to start with Jackson haze Jackson haze maybe Alexander Walker I think you have to include true holiday to start from just just from a salary cap perspective ok drew holiday Jackson haze Nikki dogs and her Walker and I think that definitely gets it done from the thunders perspective I think so tonight I don't know if the pelicans do that though ci because they then also what he do with maybe have to bring in a third team and find a taker for Lonzo oh forgot Walt we ship out Lonzo somewhere else you bring in Russ you keep reading keep favors could man that would get fun convoluted it's but it's fun but Russ and Zion together ho my gosh all right piggy piggy if the Knicks get Ross is it just because they are desperate for stars ooh that's a good question and behind yeah yeah yeah I mean yes all right next up hear from David Urbanski Russ going to the Sixers I think this is actually RTA ambition for the 76ers he's telling us that this is no question this is straight up just telling us now that would suck Ben Simmons and Russell Westbrook on the same team would be so bad icing that would be horribly bad now if n Simmons goes to the Thunder well then you have been sim as an SGA like alright Christoph Schmidt I like Griffin Drummond and Russ together the problem is just it's in Detroit yep Detroit's not a good city it's just the truth all right cave and Mary rusts and atoms get Delta the pelicans for Drew holiday and that doesn't work out close from a money perspective no that's so much money going to New Orleans it doesn't make any sense you get rid of atoms you still have to include more money going back to the Thunder for it to work out I don't even know why producer Harrison's doing this one I am rust to China he's better than that alright Chris Jones rust to the Bulls we thought about this one the biggest problem is they just you have to go but it can play off ball Otto Porter or Zach Lavine you have to throw in Cristiano Felicio and then what's your actual asset your major building block asset is it Lavine or Porter I'm not sure now what if they include where their first-round picks or a couple then maybe things get interesting but I don't think so alright poop dealer slinging here says Russ to the Timberwolves and cat gets out of Minnesota why wouldn't in asoto do that though okay Karl ëthey towns it's infinitely better than Russell Westbrook is right now and he has way more potential than Russell was so Minnesota would never do that deal there's no way all right sports geeks with the heat make a rush straight today or should they wait a little bit I mean I hope it happens today just for the sake of it happening as soon as possible because free agencies get boring but I think it might be in their favorite away there's no major rush I don't think yeah I think I agree all right next up from Zack mud Russ to the Kings know what for well actually I guess are you trading away deer in Fox then don't you want to just kind of want to build with Fox and then from a money perspective you have to wait and then you have to include some combination of Harrison Barnes Dewayne Dedmon trevor ariza Cory Joseph three of those guys can they even do those contracts or appealing no I doesn't get it done but I don't think the Kings making the end a lot of sense for us because the money and timing doesn't make sense all right Bob one two three lilica says or harden doesn't want Russ he takes way too many shots yeah that's probably true I don't know though I think they like each other so they would just make it work but I mean does does harden want Chris Paul on his team either I don't think so so all right guys make sure you are subscribed get us to a hundred and thirty K let's hit that magical number do you wanna know now what I think we should do what it's gonna spoil the joke but I'll say it anyway you go for the fist bump and I go and I go for the high-five we go
