The Brooklyn Nets have sent Alan Crab a draft pick, number 17 overall this year and, in exchange freedom, about $18 million in cap space to break it all down. Let's talk to ESPN, nb a insider. Brian Wynne, Horst on the Shell Pennzoil performance. Sign Brian and you see this deal. What's Brooklyn doing? What they line themselves up for here. Well, they gave actually gave up two first round picks to give up. Next year's first round pick is, well, it's lottery protected. That is the type of move that you make when you have a major plan. You don't do that just to get a little bit of extra cap space. That's two first round picks, including a pick this year in the top 17. As you said. So what you have right now is teams across the league looking at a Kyrie Irving Kevin Durant paring. That's what these teams are preparing themselves for. Now they're protecting themselves out a little bit. They don't have to go with two Max thoughts. They could sign one Max player, and then they could try to keep D'Angelo Russell, who is a restricted free agent and then still have some cafes. Beyond that, it's not all or nothing, but the Knicks have the to space the two slots. When they made the point fingers trade. That's why they made it. They made it to chase Durant in Irving. That's what the Nets are doing right here. They're going to chase the rant. And Irving, this is gonna be a big factor. If you can get a promise from from Kyrie Irving first, you may be able to have him recruit Kevin to help recruit Kevin Durant. Brian really quickly. I know you just tweet this out. Tell me all the teams in the NBA that now have to Max cap slots available to take into free agency. Well, there's only two right now that actually have the two max lots. That would be New York and Brooklyn. But the Clippers, because of the assets that they have, and they have about 1.5 Max SCIRI flocks, they could make a deal without too much difficulty to get to. So really, it's kind of like 2.5 teams have to max lots, and I also think that the Lakers are absolutely in play for any big maneuvers because they have a full max lot and they have the number four pick. And they have a bunch of young players that they needed to get off of salary or they needed to make a move in a trade you say forgot against the Davis If they could get, um ah, player, you know, committed to them. If they could get a Kevin Durant, they could get a cool I Leonard committed to them. Then they could go out and do something else. So all of these teams are are maneuvering themselves to make two player editions, and they're in the biggest markets now. They're not there. Somebody's gonna be a loser here. Somebody is not going to get Durant. Somebody's not going to get this combo. Durant Irving may not decide to play together. They might break apart. Durant and Kawhi Leonard are playing for the championship right now. They may end up staying in their spot. Somebody has made a big move here, is gonna end because gonna be ending up holding their hopes and dreams and not the players. And, you know, the Knicks gave up for Zynga's to put themselves in the spot as a pretty significant price for the Nets to pay two first round picks to get them in this spot as well.
