  • sign the Supermax extension that he will inevitably be offered and commit to Milwaukee long term or turn it down.

  • Now, that doesn't mean that he would ask for a trade.

  • It just means he would not sign an extension early.

  • But that would put him on the path to become a free agent after next season.

  • Now he could always Brian, of course, sign a Supermax extension Myth Milwaukee next summer.

  • But I heard you talking about this on your podcast and you had another option going.

  • In fact, you harking back to a situation between Paul George and the Oklahoma City thunder.

  • Could you lay out what you were talking about there for your TV audience who don't happen to listen to the who e have to just say, Rachel, I Yeah, I have to just say I feel I already feel for the Milwaukee Bucks fans if he doesn't sign this extension because it is going to be a day by day pressure fest.

  • I've been there on the front lines, feeling that it is not comfortable, but at the same time, if you wanna signs that he really trades away, his options, um, really in for no reason other than toe be nice to the Bucks.

  • So is there a middle path here?

  • Is there a negotiation that can be done?

  • And there may be, as you mentioned, which is what happened with Paul George and the Thunder a couple years ago.

  • Now, this wasn't publicized.

  • It wasn't formalized, But the thunder were worried about Paul George leaving.

  • And so they said to him, Look, why don't you sign a long term extension here?

  • You're gonna be we're gonna be with us.

  • And if for whatever reason, you feel like you don't wanna be here anymore, we'll work with you privately and quietly to trade you.

  • And a year into that extension, that's exactly what happened.

  • And they handled that trade as clean and quiet as possible in both sides.

  • Benefited.

  • Now nobody can predict the future, but it's an $82 million difference for for ya, Santana Campo between signing the Supermax extension or leaving and signing somewhere else.

  • So that's got his incentive right there.

  • And could the Bucks and Yanis have a secret agreement under the same thing and he would be tied to the team for at least two years because you can't trade.

  • You can't be traded for a year after signing the Supermax and you would be committed to the team.

  • You would get your money, you would remove the pressure, but you wouldn't.

  • 100% give up your optionality.

  • And look, this is not something that that the bucks could ever come on.

  • Talk about it.

  • Yeah, this could ever come out and talk about, but I gotta believe with something that they have to have discussions about as they head towards now a deadline, which is the start of the season for him to sign that extension or not.

  • You know, Brian, that's an interesting scenario.

  • But here's the down.

  • Now I'm gonna play the Scrooge here.

  • Okay, Here's the downside to this.

  • I would say that if he leaves in free agency, he's the bad guy.

  • But if he asks out of the deal, I think that could be worse.

  • Potentially from a PR standpoint.

  • At least that's because he could always go back to saying, Well, I'm a free agent.

  • This is what I've been playing for to get to this point and make a decision where if you ask out, I think you could potentially look worse.

  • And here's the other part of this.

  • What if Milwaukee says to him, Yeah, we don't think we're getting enough back, so we're not going to deal with it and or deal you somewhere.

  • Then you could have some potential issues there, and it can get contentious.

  • Like I don't know if that's in the best interest of Yannis.

  • From a public relations standpoint, Brian, you're shaking your head well, First off, first off, it's messy.

  • It's not clean.

  • Of course, it's not clean.

  • It can't be formalized, and it za about trust.

  • But yes, the its's way better for the Bucks for you.

  • Honest to do this because in the event that he in two years, was not happy with the direction of the franchise, they could get a return for him, and the return they could get for him would be huge, because he'd be under long term contract.

  • If you look at the return that the Thunder God for Paul George now granted, that was slanted because Kawhi Leonard was a part of the deal.

  • But look at the return that the Thunder got for Russell Westbrook.

  • They got that because he was under long term contract.

  • Uh, any time you ever would leave a franchise, if you're a star player, it would be difficult.

  • But if you did this, not only would you keep the bucks in, you know, some peace in the short term, give them a real chance that this season without being distracted, you would also open the door that, if for some reason down the road, it doesn't work out that you do wanna leave that the Bucks could get a King's ransom for you in return.

  • And no, it wouldn't be like free agency because you wouldn't be able to choose your team.

  • But the amount of power he has, he probably would be able to direct it.

  • And again, this is not something that I think could be used on a regular basis.

  • But I do think it's a it's a middle path.

  • It's another option that could be explored where everybody could get what they need.

  • I appreciate that.

  • I think you're making good points, but I'm with George.

  • I got to say if I was honest, I would not do that because then you are in the position of having to be the actor in a year or two and having to be the force that asked out of there.

  • I think that is very delicate, even if you will be technically leaving the team in a better position because they will get assets for you.

  • And the fact that they will get assets for you, by the way, denigrates the team that you will be going to because you talk about Russell Westbrook getting traded, right?

  • Well, guess what?

  • Houston had to give up a lot for him.

  • Talk about Paul, George and the trade.

  • You know that the Clippers gave up a lot for Paul George $2 million and well, but this is the thing.

  • And, you know, I've said this on the show for years since the summer you were sitting at that table with you, me and Tracy McGrady.

  • That's when the Supermax got past.

  • Initially after 2016 season, Kevin Durant goes to the Warriors and they come up with the Supermax.

  • And I said to Tracy, You tell me I don't have $82 million in my bank account ever, so I cannot tell you how I should feel about this is an $82 million bribe enough to derail your career in a place you otherwise would not want to be in.

  • And player after player we have seen has said whether it's Anthony Davis, whether it's other players have said no, you know what?

  • It's not enough because I can make out that money, make up that money in other places with other contracts over the ensuing years.

  • We just have not seen that bribe work, and that doesn't surprise me with the kind of players that we have.

  • Who could be in line for that?

  • You know what else we haven't seen?

  • Rachel.

  • You know what else we haven't seen?

  • Bring it way almost have never seen a player.

  • Ah, star player who's on a contract that doesn't extend end up resigning with his team.

  • That is true.

  • Paul George was an outlier.

  • Now it happened with Steph Curry because his contract was set up.

  • He couldn't really extend players who don't extend often leave.

  • Getting an extension is vital, and it puts everything on a better timeline.

  • If you if he does not extend, even if he has great great reasons, he is going to, he's going to put enormous pressure on this Bucks season.

  • I'm telling you, it's something that should not be dismissed.

  • I agree with that.

  • I mean, George, obviously, he can't sign in the middle of this season.

  • He's got to sign either before December 20 seconds or not again till the following summer.

  • What do you think it's gonna be like for the Bucks?

  • And honest if he doesn't sign the Supermax, even though he could still sign it the following off season?

  • I think it's gonna be tough to Brian's point, but I think you can shut that down like you just say, Look, Lebron's done it right.

  • Other guys have done it like I'm not answering for agency question guys, you can ask all you want, but we're just moving on to the next thing.

sign the Supermax extension that he will inevitably be offered and commit to Milwaukee long term or turn it down.
