  • Bobby Marks joins us now on Bobby.

  • Let's take a look now at this Clippers roster.

  • How is it looking in shaping up with these two superstars on it?

  • Well, you've got your to franchise players right now, and I think when you look at their roster, you still have Patrick Beverley, who they've agreed to in principle on a new contract.

  • You have laundry, Shama.

  • You still have Lou Williams mantra as Harrell.

  • Uh, you have agreed to a new contract with Rodney McGruder.

  • They got Mo Harkless in a trade from Miami earliest week, and the likelihood is that you have avec a zoo back.

  • So it's not like it's bare bones there, Linda.

  • There still a foundation there.

  • And yes, it costs you shake villages Alexander and Danilo Gallinari and I think you when you're getting a player like Oi, Leonard and Paul George, the picks are worth it.

  • I know it's a lot of picks that are going out, but these air these air players that are gonna be honest roster for the next three or four years here.

  • So now it's just about kind of trimming around the edges.

  • You still have your $4.8 million room exception to go out and maybe add another piece here.

  • But it's not like both players are walking into an empty roster there.

  • There's a foundation in place here.

  • It sounds like a big reason why Kawhi Leonard wanted to come there, Of course, with Paul George.

  • Then you look at what can you tell?

  • Okay.

  • See, Thunder fans.

  • My goodness, They didn't see this coming.

  • What about their roster?

  • Yeah, well, you still have Russell Westbrook.

  • That's that's the big question.

  • There you have what?

  • Russell Westbrook in You have Steven Adams and guilders.

  • Alexander is certainly a nice player toe to complement Westbrook, you know, next to him.

  • And, um you know, But yet you lose Paul George, who is an all star.

  • And I think for Sam Presti, the certainly the writing was on the wall with Paul George asking to be out Now.

  • You made it a nice save when you were able to recoup a pounding full of draft picks.

  • I haven't even I haven't been able to go through them all yet.

  • There's so many.

  • But this is the nature of the beast.

  • I mean, this is this is the business of the N B A.

  • When you realize that a player that you signed and who committed for, you know for four years doesn't want to be there now, how do you kind of make you say face here and turn that player into a young player in and draft picks?

  • And, um, now the question is going to be as far as what the future Russell Westbrook's going to be.

  • And I think if you're Oklahoma City, yes, this is not a good day for you.

  • But, um, I trust Sam Presti, their general manager there, as far as how he can rebuild this team or retool this team going forward.

  • Now, when we talk about the Los Angeles Lakers, they wasted no time.

  • They've agreed to a deal with Danny Green.

  • Many thought Danny Green was gonna follow Kawai Leonard to the end and back his former teammate with the Raptors.

  • So let's look at the Lakers and the numbers or two years, $30 million for Danny Green to be a Los Angeles Laker.

  • Let's look at their roster and where they stand well, there's a lot of work to go, Linda.

  • I mean, there is a lot of work.

  • And if that if that green numbers two years 30.

  • That's 15 million off of the projected $32 million that they had in cap space and worse, still trying to figure out if maybe Anthony Davis does not waive this trade bonus now, right?

  • The trade bonus was was part of CO I Leonard coming.

  • Is this going to change now?

  • If that's the case, that number shrinks down to 27 million.

  • So I think we'll see in the next you know, 45 hours here if the day that if the Davis trade bonuses is still going to be waived, if it is, it's 32 million.

  • Now we get 15 off the cap.

  • It 17 million.

  • But Linda, you had seven or eight roster holes you had.

  • Jared Dudley and Troy Daniels had agreed to contract.

  • Now you add Danny Green.

  • That brings you up to six.

  • I believe you still have a roster.

  • Spots have filled.

  • You need a point guard.

  • You need a bench.

  • Um, and this is kind of your Plan B.

  • If you're the Lakers here, Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube.
