  • the N B A draft is five days away, but trade talk is dominating the league right now.

  • The biggest question.

  • Could both James Harden and Russell Westbrook beyond the move after ESPN reported they are concerned about the direction they're going in?

  • Here's Kendrick Perkins on first take yesterday.

  • It's time to blow the whole damn thing up.

  • Listen, Russell Westbrook is already gone, okay?

  • He's not coming back.

  • He was.

  • He requested the trade.

  • I know Russell Westbrook.

  • He's done OK.

  • If you're James Harden, you cannot stay there and wait to see what you're going to get back in return, because it's not gonna be someone that's gonna put you in a title contention or someone that's gonna help you win the championship.

  • That was perk yesterday.

  • Here's Jay will today from K Jay Z across the hall, and you were on this program yesterday and you said essentially the same thing.

  • You believe both of those guys will be out of Houston if Russell Westbrook does not want to be there anymore.

  • What is the need for James Harden to stay?

  • Stephen Solace has already came out and said that they're going to double down and run small ball again.

  • You have not won playing small basketball.

  • And even if you are able to trade, if you are able to get rid of Russell Westbrook, what assets in return do you get for him?

  • I don't think the trade market value is going to be the same of what it was for Russell five years ago.

  • What is gonna be now?

  • I think if you're James Harden, you're gonna be sitting there saying I'm 31 years old.

  • What the hell am I doing in Houston?

  • I love being here.

  • I've given this organization everything I have.

  • But it's time for me to go on to better pastures to make sure that I can find myself inside of world champions.

  • You know, the all of the speculation because Daryl Morey has gone to Philadelphia will be about the possibility of Harden and Embiid teaming up together in Philadelphia if they can figure out how to make a trade.

  • You talked about it yesterday, here, Maybe Ben Simmons again.

  • We're just wildly speculating on what might happen, but I do think it's an interesting consideration.

  • I asked Tim Legler about it on the radio yesterday.

  • I'll ask you to you directly.

  • If that's what winds up happening here and Harden winds up in Philadelphia, do they win the Eastern Conference next year?

  • Yes, they would.

  • The one caveat to that that would probably stop.

  • That is, I wonder if Tim Partita, the owner of the Houston Rockets, would actually allow there are more to leave the organization to say it takes time off to, then go to Philadelphia.

  • Get hired.

  • Tim Fatima would have to be helping out the Philadelphia 76 years to do that.

  • Now what?

  • I did also hear yesterday through so many rumors and speculation around this, but I wouldn't discount the Brooklyn Nets for James Harden.

  • The Brooklyn Nets have Spencer Dinwiddie.

  • He's been sitting subliminal messages about not wanting to be in Brooklyn.

  • He's been out in L A for the last couple of months.

  • Uh, they have caress, avert.

  • They have a lot of assets.

  • Uh, they want to try to get Joe Harris back, but they have a lot of moving parts.

  • I and Kevin Durant and James Harden and Kyrie Irving together in the same team.

  • That could be interesting plays.

  • Well, well, Durant and Harden.

  • Obviously we're together once upon a time in Oklahoma City, took that team to the finals.

  • But that's a very long time ago in both their careers have gone and very interesting direction since then.

  • Do you think that's a good Let's do the same thing?

  • You put that group together, K D Harden, and who's stopping them?

  • Who's stopping them?

  • I mean, that would be the favorite to win.

  • The whole damn is only one ball, though, right?

  • But with James Harden did also average 7.5 8 assists a game.

  • I mean, it's not like the ball sticks.

  • I mean, the one thing, the clarity of the worry about Kyrie, obviously, but you can allow him to be more of a score.

  • James could be more of a traditional point guard, but still can score while we're throwing names out there.

  • The name Victor Oladipo has come up in some conversations, and again, we don't know what's gonna happen.

  • But the possibilities of a new Oladipo winding up on the move here as we just it's fun to Regulus Lee speculate about what might happen in the N.

  • B.

  • A.

  • Is there a team out there that is Victor Oladipo away from winning the championship.

  • I mean, look, there's so many things.

  • I mean, Victor Oladipo potentially toe L A.

  • Maybe.

  • I mean, I've heard DEMAR DeRozan trade assets to L.

  • A which l.

  • A.

  • That's a great question.

  • Got you.

  • That's a great question is that it couldn't be with LeBron a de, depending upon what they decided to do with some, their assets could be with the Clippers.

  • I still think CP three is a better fit for the Clippers, but I could see video go out to L.

  • A.

  • I mean, I could CBO maybe go to Phoenix.

  • There's a lot of opportunities for Victor oldie, but I can't sit here and say I know exactly where he's gonna go.

  • No, I know, but you put him with LeBron and Anthony Davis with the Lakers.

  • And now you really are talking about a time right?

  • You are.

  • I mean, that's what the way that feels anyway.

  • Look, it's fun.

  • We're playing fantasy basketball.

  • Those who work our way towards in this very abbreviated off season.

  • We got the draft and then we got all this wheeling and dealing Milwaukee.

  • I mean that they're looking for that right?

  • I mean, they need someone.

  • They need a number two.

  • Chris Middleton can be number two.

  • Could be interesting.
