  • all right.

  • I wanna talk about the Oklahoma City thunder.

  • They have filled the final, eh?

  • NBA head coaching opening left.

  • They have promoted assistant Mark Dagnall to replace Billy Donovan, the 35 year old coach O K.

  • C s G league team for five seasons.

  • He was an assistant to Donovan back when he was the head coach at Florida.

  • Zack, What is your reaction to this?

  • Higher.

  • I mean, there have been rumors that he was the heir apparent for a while Now.

  • I think this coaching search got a little complicated.

  • Several other people had a chance, but he has a great reputation from his time in the D League and even before, and I do think it's a signal.

  • I mean, we're going to talk about another signal shortly, but the thunder entering a deep rebuild.

  • Let's have this young coach.

  • That's great.

  • A player development and maybe even game strategy to let's have him guide this young team full of draft picks.

  • So I think it's a signal.

  • Another one is if we needed one of where the thunder are going now.

  • Well, I'll tell you what to me.

  • It's typical Sam Presti, you have to realize before Sam Presti got into basketball, he used to work at a golf club where he had to go pick up golf ball.

  • So he's always looking for a hidden jump, and he's always looking to give someone the opportunity to shock the world.

  • That's just how Sam Preston work.

  • But I talked to a lot of people in the organization from Nick Collison, Nazi Mohammed, and everyone have high praise for this new coach.

  • So if Sam pressing, everyone agreed to it.

  • I'm all in for it.

  • Yeah, I'd have to agree a swell because, as Zack said, this is the ultimate sign of a rebuild.

  • You know, I was just looking there.

  • Key players, the three of them outside of Steven Adams and Gallo Danilo Gallinari, who is a free agent.

  • All of the three key players moving forward are under 22 years old.

  • She Gill, just Alexander, Darius Baizley and also Lou Dordt.

  • So I think this is another sign of a rebuild and also we forget that the thunder low key do rebuild pretty well.

  • I mean, they drafted three MVPs and K D.

  • Russ and James Harden, so this is a process that they understand.

  • Yes, as you guys mentioned, I don't know how many more signals we need from the thunder, right?

  • It's like if you've been struck by lightning, everybody should take the hint.

  • And in fact, here Is that another one we've been hearing, Honey?

  • Exactly.

  • We have been hearing that they're ready to move.

  • Chris Pollen.

  • In fact, Brian Wynne Horse and Tim Bomb Times reporting.

  • Okay, sees next move could not only involved CP three, but the Phoenix Suns.

  • The two teams have gained traction in their discussions around the 10 time All Star as Oklahoma City moves toward that rebelled signal signal signal, and Phoenix tries to build on their electric eight and run in the bubble.

  • So perk, do you, by Chris Paul wanting to be a son because I assume that he would give his blessing here and having to be a good fit for CP.

  • Yes, I do.

  • I think this will be a great move for the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Phoenix Suns and Chris Paul, Chris Paul going to the Phoenix Suns.

  • I put them in the top five in the Western Conference.

  • He would be the best thing for Devin Booker and DeAndre Atan.

  • I think the sky's the limit for both of those guys.

  • But you had a CP three along with Monty Williams today.

  • Today, Young ball club.

  • And hey, I'm telling you, if you're contender in the West, you better watch out for them.

  • Because Phoenix Suns will be making a lot of noise with that backcourt of Chris Paul, although he's gonna be 36 and Devin Booker.

  • Devin Book is already a top shooting guard in this league.

  • And you giving him a vet like Chris Paul to teach him the game, the ins and outs he might lead the league in scoring.

  • Yeah, I'm kind of 50 50 on this just because I can see how Phoenix would wanna be all in, you know, especially with Chris Paul adding him in, you know, after the okay, see experiment, where he brought out the best in all of their young players.

  • I can see that same moment that O.

  • K.

  • C had with their season now Phoenix taking that mo mentum with their win streak in the bubble, I could see that transition happening.

  • We all saw Devin Booker has proved that he can create for himself both on and off the ball so that he can, you know, share the rock with CP three.

  • I love this DeAndre 18 idea playing pick and roll, which gives me like baby lob City vibes.

  • Plus a number of guys like Kelly Uber and Mikhail Bridges like CP three, could make their lives easier.

  • You know, I'm usually like a glass half full type of girl, but like I'm thinking on the other side, the only part that really you know, I come to question is CP three.

  • I think he's 35 years old, so I just wonder if he cares to go to a contender where he could get a ring before everything said and done.

  • But to each their own, to each their own.

  • Well, to that 0.1 thing Sam Presti has done what he's had to trade guys is he has taken into account their wishes guys of this stature.

  • So I don't think Chris Paul is gonna be traded, given what he did for them last year to anywhere where he's not comfortable going Now.

  • Very few teams are guaranteed anything in the Western Conference next year.

  • It is absolutely loaded.

  • But you put Chris Paul on this team and you put his shooting with Devin Booker shooting, and they're playing stretch fours around DeAndre.

  • Phoenix is a problem.

  • They are a really strong playoff contender.

  • And to me, let's just say the trade is centered around Ricky Rubio and Kelly.

  • You break.

  • Maybe you've determined that those guys aren't part of your long term.

  • Yeah, let's just say you've determined that those guys aren't part of your long term future.

  • For whatever reason, agree or disagree, that's the determination you've made.

  • The only opportunity costs really is you have no more cap.

  • Space is coming off the next offseason, Summer 2021 when you would have a lot.

  • And then after that eighties, big deal kicks in bridges.

  • Big deal kicks in, so your cap situation is a little unclear.

  • You might forfeit two summers of cap space and have none left on the horizon.

  • But you know who's signing in Phoenix.

  • Maybe they just don't think they're going to get any of the big free agents those following two summers.

  • So to me, if you if you conclude that kind of risk is low, the sons are gonna be decent two very good next year with Chris Paul if they get him.

  • And look, Chris has options to, As you said, Sam Presti tends to include guys of this stature when making this kind of trade.

  • Phoenix is close to where his family is in L.

  • A.

  • I don't think there may be a ring contender in the Western Conference, but they're definitely If you added Chris Paul to that roster and activated Devin Booker, I agree with you perk.

  • He could be in that scoring title conversation, so it would be a fun team to be around and look, if he really today wanted to go to a contender or bust, he could waive that player option for his final year and then he would be very tradable.

  • But I don't think he's going to do that because that is about $45 million and I don't expect that.

all right.
