  • news from the N B.

  • A, and this is going to be very interesting.

  • The Rockets navigating in off season of major change New coach, new general manager Now a new challenges emerging.

  • The uncertainty.

  • Ah, former MVPs, James Harden and Russell Westbrook and their futures with the team.

  • Jay Will has made his way across the hall from Cage's over there.

  • Great to see you as always.

  • Let's just start with us.

  • Do you believe either of them will be on the Rockets when the season begins?

  • No, no, I think both will probably be moved somewhere else in return for assets and and think about everything.

  • First year on the job for Stephen Silas, you have Russell Westbrook, James Harden have came out pretty much through their agents and said, Look, we're not happy here.

  • What are we doing?

  • You have things like P.

  • J.

  • Tucker, who's irate about this contract.

  • You have Daniel House, you have Evan Gordon.

  • You have all Eric or excuse me.

  • Also Rivers all dissatisfied with their roles.

  • Former players describing this franchise is problematic.

  • I think Darrell Moore is trying to make moves to get James Harden to Philadelphia.

  • I've been hearing rumors about.

  • Hey, could we do a swap?

  • Ben Simmons and James Harden and Russell Westbrook.

  • I know people here want to hear about that.

  • I think the Knicks are going to try to make a move in return for assets for Russell West.

  • Okay, let's dive into what you just said.

  • You believe Ben Simmons for James Harden could be in the office.

  • I think it has to be on the table.

  • I think some of your Darrell Moore you're looking at your situation saying, Hey, look, can these two work together?

  • I'm not sure, but think about one of the things you wouldn't be able to do against James Harden.

  • That you could do against Ben Simmons is literally stack the paint.

  • Sit there.

  • It makes it difficult for Joel and be toe work.

  • If you're able to pull something like that off you unlocked Joel Embiid, You unlock James Harden.

  • Also, you brought Doc Rivers there to make that situation work with Tobias Harris.

  • I think that is a team that you can build and have a chance to win the Eastern Conference with.

  • That's remarkable.

  • Ben Simmons is known as a guy who's not willing to shoot.

  • James Harden never had that problem.

  • So that's a you need three point shooting with the Philadelphia 70 Sixers, right?

  • So that's a really interesting one.

  • Now you just said Russell Westbrook to the Knicks.

  • Well, the Knicks have a lot of expiring contracts on their books.

  • If you're able to get that, if you're Houston, if you're going into the rebuild scenario, if your temper Tina the owner, then you could get a lot of expiring contracts and Russell Westbrook in New York City.

  • And I'm not just saying that because we're here in New York City, I would tell you whatever team I thought he was going to.

  • Fashion Week.

  • Tribeca Film Festival Owning a team New Yorkers really want any of the cap space to do that.

  • Now can you start building around a guy like Russell Westbrook?

  • If CP three is going to the sons or going to the Clippers?

  • I think that's a shot.

  • You have to take us well, so that's really remarkable.

  • And so it let's put to go back to the previous one.

  • If you were to have James Harden and Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris, and whatever it is they put around them in Philadelphia.

  • I would have to sort of sit down and look at what it would look like.

  • And we don't even know what the trade would look like.

  • Does that then become what in the Eastern Conference?

  • It probably become the favorite in Eastern Conference.

  • So I mean Milwaukee together with Milwaukee, Boston, Toronto, it becomes the Sixers.

  • Done.

  • I would love to watch the Celtics school against him because I actually think the Celtics have defensive pieces that could defend.

  • But if you had James Harden Joel Embiid on the same team, pick and roll high usage rate surround them with a guy like Tobias Harris, who could be a marginal shooter.

  • There are more is great at finding the gems in the gems in the rough.

  • If he's able to find the right pieces around the team, they will have to be to present the favorite going into the Eastern Conference season.

  • That would be really remarkable.

  • Didn't even mention Miami.

  • Obviously, who made the final this past year, and then Russell Westbrook on the Knicks becomes what this is a team that's a franchise has been so bad for so long, he brings a lot of star power star power star power, somebody that wants to be here.

  • I think New York has been waiting for a free agent to want to be here.

  • Leon Rose, Worldwide West.

  • They have a lot of the pieces infrastructure wise.

  • Maybe Russell Westbrook is the first piece of the puzzle down the road.

  • Do you have a reason to believe he wants to be here?

  • Because you're right.

  • The Stars generally have not wanted to come play for the Knicks.

  • Do you think he wants to be here?

  • You know, look, I think Russell Westbrook always wants to win a championship.

  • But if it doesn't work out that you can't get traded to a team, I mean, why are you staying in Houston?

  • If James Harden does decide to leave it, there is a better situation for him.

  • Why would you stay in Houston?

  • What makes sense for you to own something of your own or you go try to win a championship?

  • I don't know what team would be able to move pieces enoughto win a championship for Russell Westbrook.

  • Right now, it's such an unusual offseason.

  • Should we expect there to be more of this as we work our way through November and and to the beginning of next season, and we're going to see a bunch of movement like, I think you're going to see a ton of trade scenarios.

  • You know, another person that a lot of people always talk about.

  • Bradley Bill, You know Bradley Bill.

  • I know John Wall is coming back.

  • Ah, lot of people want to see John Wall and Bradley Bill run it back.

  • But is that something that Bradley Bill want to do when you have situations out there like the Lakers organization, you have other teams that have cap space that can use a guy like Bradley Bill that is one of the most gifted scores we have in the game of basketball.

  • We just don't talk about them because he pays for the Wizards Fascinating again.

  • The possibility of James Harden in Philadelphia playing with Doc and playing with Joel Embiid really would be spectacular.

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