  • It's something nothing or everything.

  • Time shoutout Kevin Wildes First up, according to coach, the Miller family has entered into an agreement to sell the Utah Jazz and the arena to Qualtrics founder Ryan Smith for 1.66 Wait for it.

  • Billions with a B billion dollars.

  • Richard knows the Miller family is on the Jazz for 35 years.

  • Nick, is this something?

  • Nothing or everything.

  • It's something because rates everybody's used to Utah doing things a certain way with that organization.

  • May be a new ownership comes in.

  • They want to spend even more money.

  • When you spend 1.6 billion for a team, you better be willing to spend a lot more checks than that.

  • Moving forward.

  • Yeah, I think this is something one.

  • You know, the Millers.

  • I played for this team for 82 quick games, and when I say it is a family organization, there are people that have been in the organization for years, So there's going to be a ship.

  • Secondly, the last.

  • The secondly, The thing I want to say is that if you're spending $1.6 billion on one of the smallest markets in the entire MBA.

  • Trust me, the MBA is doing just fine.

  • It is a great point, right?

  • When the Clippers went for two billion, everybody said, Oh, it's because it's in L.

  • A team.

  • They come available so infrequently.

  • Well, this is $1.6 billion and the man who just bought the team, Richard, he's 40 years old, so I just want to know what call.

  • I just want to know what you've been doing with your life.

  • Nothing, obviously, just saying I want to get to one.

  • The Knicks favorite, Stan Van Gundy.

  • He raved about Zion Williams since playmaking ability in his introductory press conference as pelicans head coach yesterday.

  • Here is what he said when asked about what position Zion will play.

  • Take a listen.

  • You have a vision for what he is, which is a multi talented guy.

  • I mean, he is a nun, unbelievable playmaker.

  • For a guy his size, These guys will take the ball off the glass and lead the break and make plays.

  • He can make passes off the dribble.

  • He can finish over bigger people inside.

  • I mean, he's a multi talented guy.

  • I don't look at him in any way as far as is he a four or five.

  • As time goes on, I'm gonna find out that he can do even Mawr than I think he can dio on.

  • Things will evolve from there even more than he thinks he can do.

  • Richard is Van Gundy saying that Zion is not limited to a position, something nothing or everything.

  • I think it's nothing, in my opinion, because we've talked about position less basketball for like the last five years.

  • Players air just trending everywhere.

  • He's like Draymond.

  • Green is the defensive player of the year and he plays the five position and he's 6 ft five.

  • You've seen what the Houston Rockets did at the end of the day.

  • Zion Williamson is an athletic freak.

  • He has the physical size of, Ah, huge four man, probably more of a defensive lineman.

  • But he can shoot the ball.

  • We've seen it improved that we've seen his skill because he's only 65 so he has skill.

  • So there's like, who cares about was it?

  • Position is they just need him on the court for about 70 plus games.

  • Then you have something right.

  • This is absolutely nothing.

  • Zero this is exactly what stands supposed to say.

  • I mean, stands whole tenure in New Orleans is gonna be defined on how well he gets Zion to play year after year and how many wins I Incan lead the team to.

  • So Stan has to say all this.

  • I'm sure he believes that or he wouldn't have taken the job.

  • But this is absolutely nothing.

  • Zion has to develop, understands watch.

  • And if he does, they're all gonna be set.

  • Well, they're gonna be so many eyes right on the relationship between those two stands hiring.

  • He's got so many strengths.

  • There have been people who are wondering how he's going to relate to someone who last year was the youngest player in the league.

  • And he absolutely thinks that he is a path to make him and Zion like this.

  • So we will find out if that's actually gonna happen.

  • All right, let's move on to the Knicks.

  • Because, according to our former colleague, now S n Y e in Bagley, several teams have reported the Knicks are open to taking on some undesirable contracts and trades.

  • The idea, of course, is to require draft picks, young talent in exchange for doing so, Nick, Is this something?

  • Nothing or everything.

  • This is nothing.

  • Isn't this ingrained in the next DNA?

  • Get bad contracts and and get players who are past their prime?

  • I mean, my man, this time it would be on purpose, a rates.

  • Look, my man tips is not going there to lose.

  • I know that.

  • So he is going to get any veteran guy who he thinks he can still get to play at a high level and get them to win games.

  • But this is nothing.

  • The Knicks are where bad contracts go to die.

  • Anybody who's got a bad contract on their books is gonna call them up and say, Hey, Tibbs will take him.

  • Just give us some money So I am not surprised at all.

  • I just don't think the Knicks are going to be as atrocious as the rest of the world does, because I know Tom Thibodeau and he's going to do everything he possibly can to prove all the people who are doubting him.

  • Wrong.

  • Eso I agree with you because it is the Knicks.

  • But let's play a game called hypothetically.

  • Things were going toe work out, and so we're gonna give an example.

  • A pretty basic example.

  • Basically, when the Nets got fleeced for all of their draft picks and they had no draft picks for multiple years and they had nothing, their team was dog.

  • There was it was bad.

  • What did they do?

  • They took on Timothy Ma Gaza's contract in order to get who did they get?

  • D'Angelo Russell, who was the number two pick in the draft just two years prior.

  • Lakers wanted to move on because they got Lonzo Ball.

  • So you take on the bad contract, you get a good draft pick and then he ends up developing and being an All Star.

  • Would that all Star allow him to dio?

  • It allowed him to get the team to the postseason, which made the Nets and attractive free agent destination.

  • So let's say that they follow the exact same thing.

  • We know it's not because it's the Knicks, but ultimately this is their mindset and what they're thinking.

  • So I'm going to say it's something I absolutely think it's something because I think it is evidence of a plan.

  • Richard, The model that you just described is absolutely what the Knicks should be doing this off season.

  • There's not a lot of teams this offseason that have cap room, so that's one second of all.

  • The cap is going to be lower because of the less revenue coming in, even with them artificially inflating it somewhat.

  • So that is gonna even more make the fact that you have not a lot of teams being willing to take on these kinds of deals.

  • If you are a team with a lot of cap room and a little bit of a tolerance, because maybe you've got a new coach of management that everyone understands.

  • This is a little bit of rebuilding.

  • You could be the one that could take these contracts and get a pretty high price of a pit high pick attached, a player that you want to buy his Harris calling to buy his Harris is actual planning on the name.

  • Calling Al Horford.

  • Calling Al Horford is the difference between before, when a lot of times it was the Knicks offering the bad contract themselves and then having to send it attached.

  • I don't know Kristaps Porzingis in a trade or something like that to get fixed back.

It's something nothing or everything.
