  • well, we'll see what they do.

  • They also have.

  • Of course, Zach noted other financial commitments, and let's get to one of those rising start.

  • Aaron Fox received a five year, $163 million maxed extension this past weekend, Fox less than one month shy of his 23rd birthday.

  • So perk is this extension something nothing or everything.

  • Rachel.

  • It is everything.

  • It is everything.

  • You they drafted Fox.

  • And every single year this young man has gotten better.

  • He's one of the most underrated point guards in the league, and he keeps getting better every single year.

  • I think this is the right move by the King's.

  • They're moving in the right directions.

  • It showed that they're invested into who the guy that they draft as a lottery pick.

  • And the sky's the limit for Fox.

  • And I love because you know he's a Texas boy, so I'm always rooting for him, and I'm happy for him.

  • But he's a great starting point for the king's organization.

  • It's everything, and it has to be everything because it's every damn dollar that things can offer him.

  • It actually reminds me a little bit of the Nuggets deal with Jamal Murray.

  • Where it strikes you is a little early.

  • It strikes some people is early, But this is a mid market, small market team that has to take care of its own guys.

  • And I'm a deer and Fox believer.

  • I'm a deer and Fox believer.

  • I think he has talent.

  • I think he could be a leader.

  • That said last year he got better and a lot of stuff finishing in the paint, getting to the line playmaking, but 29% from three.

  • If that doesn't change, guys, we're gonna go under picks against them.

  • And I thought his defense kind of plateau maybe got a little worse.

  • That said, if he could put together the improvements he had last year and improve those other parts of his game, then it all comes together and you have a potentially really, really special player, and I'm actually optimistic he can put it all together like that.

  • Well, if you're talking about a situational contractual compound, Jamal Murray.

  • Certainly the Kings would be happy if it ended up a swell for them as it ended up for the Nuggets in that situation.

  • Lastly, I want to get to Fred Vanvleet, who agreed to a four year, $85 million deal to re sign with the Raptors.

  • The deal includes a player option in the final year.

  • It is the largest contract in MBA history for an unknown drafted player.

  • So first, just a little congrats from all of us to Fred VanVleet.

  • His expression is bet on yourself, right?

  • So is it something nothing or everything?

  • Zach, that Fred bet on himself got those kind of numbers and is going to return to the Toronto Raptors.

  • Obviously, it's everything.

  • Isn't this what you want to see in sports?

  • Undrafted.

  • Too little, not athletic enough.

  • Can't finish at the rim.

  • Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

  • And he comes in and he's a flat out stud.

  • He's a winner.

  • He's toughest.

  • Hell, he's a character guy, and he's making $20 million a year and just for kicks.

  • Give me the player option in the year four.

  • So if I'm still rolling, I could get back into free agency again.

  • In my prime.

  • I love it.

  • I love it for the Raptors.

  • I kind of wanted the Knicks to go after him because I think the Knicks need a point guard in the absolute worst way, but it's a great deal for Fred VanVleet.

  • Great deal for the Raptors.

  • Well, Rachel is not.

  • Everything is not something that's not nothing.

  • This is a beautiful thing.

  • You watching the guy who did get drafted on draft night.

  • Guys look forward to get drafted, but now friend and Fleet showing guys that never got drafted, especially in this year's draft, to never give up and much props to massage your jewelry for taking a chance on the guy like Fred VanVleet and Nick Nurse, actually giving him an opportunity to go out there and prove himself.

  • But you got to give a lot of props to Fred Vanvleet because, like you said, he bedded on himself and I follow him on social media and he always have the emojis of the dice and he rolling the dice and guess what?

  • He struck gold man, and I'm proud of him because for the simple fact that he came out, he delivered.

  • He's underrated defender.

  • He could get buckets in this contract is well deserved.

  • So to the young fellas out there that didn't get drafted are still trying to find their way on the N B.

  • A roster.

  • Never give up, because all you need is that one shot.

  • And when that door opens, you gotta make sure you capitalize on the opportunity like Fred and Fleet did.

  • So he's giving us all hope, especially these younger kids that's coming up absolutely as so impressed with him the way he managed his own development and career.

  • And this is everything guys for the Raptors to because, first of all, it speaks well of their system.

  • As you said, Messiah, Jiri, Nick, Nurse and everybody on that staff who worked with Fred Thio uncork all of his talents, and they lost Serge Ibaka.

  • And if they had lost Fred VanVleet to, that would have triggered such a sea change in that organization.

  • So I think this is everything both for Fred and for the Raptors themselves.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.

well, we'll see what they do.
