Okay 'cause that's kind of what golf is for me. That's a golf again last week did a really good guest for golf. I'm not one likes the deep dive into the gulf PGA tour season because I just don't watch enough. When we want to play and let you in need to change your habits yeah. But now I am getting pumped for baseball season I'm gonna go to the mariners' home opener you army and your travel. Not to go to Seattle for open today I think I'm gonna go to a couple games I think DePaul and I was gonna really kind of re surge the mariners' I think they're going to be in the conversation this year and AL last inmates of underrated move this Nazi they need to build the farm system up because they were 28 according to MM dot com poll yeah but my Bravo sock they were number one in most unrecognizable. Lineup going into the -- easy there's excitement around that's for eagle is that guy I know is not sakic you don't know you'll find out Michael wanted to explore the real him. A leadoff guys at fourth and line there's a weird feeling knowing your team is going 76ers. Further season because the Braves are all in on tank mode until we moved can't count is right right I think Atlanta an Atlanta yeah I've been reading so much about what they've been doing and I don't know lineup. But I just native got and they've gotten rid of enough people for me to know that they are tainting until we get the new stadium as an idea whatever he wants and then in the name of HR tax and this is a sick obsession under you need help. Yeah I'm rocketed disagree with that at all it it is a sick obsession there is known there's no doubt right now but just. Happy pitchers catchers Dave but I have a I had an instinct text me last night some doing some show prep stuff and try to book gas for our show make it a good showed today. And I get a text from Mike Lynch last night OK what's Mike Lynch won so might Mike Lynch text me just individually we have this group taxed of guests and everything else the boring radio stuff. Michael and sends me attacks last night goes hey. And you put together can you help me. Do some homework and put together the top 25 rap songs in the past ten years wow. And I said he would he's leaning on you for wrapped expertise yes that's made you feel good day and asking for help now did you feel good. Respected I appreciate that in the rap game your wealth out of my my initial reaction was why you nastiness. So I I Texan Mac what's this for. As you know I listen to bits and pieces of a prime time on my drive home right if I'm run aaron's. Adding you to listen to much of it last night. I guess they talked about it in soup said that Kendrick Lamar is rap song at the grammys he didn't like you like the performance did like the song OK and sensor OK sue looks not the biggest rap fan. Our right to be asking to do it as he goes yes they want me to put a list together of the top 25 rap songs of the last ten year last ten years. COC you can get into Rapp who and so I was doing some homework a little band and that it kind of led me to think it at this. Which genre the past ten years. Has done the worst job. Of keeping it going boom. Pool pool because I think a lot of people would text wrapped I don't think it is rap. You know what is a really good one for a lot of people this is out a year depth a little bit it is country. Oca and modern day country music for a lot of people who like legitimately love country music genre has not gone in the right now it is more pop in Ponte in like techno kind of beats now than it has ever been and that's not country no more guitars and was no artistic I sit now they're with a six string guitar playing and singing about his dog died it's now like let's go party let's get trot let's go fish and kind of stuff senior right it's out of my depth and listen a lot of country music. I've been to one country music concert pretty much my whole life and Garth Brooks was Von. I was gonna say Iraq. Because whose big Iraq right now what I imagine dragons is that even consider rock yes see that it's crowded rock it's hard to classify rock music. I would say raps got a pretty bad job but there are few people that are still tent poles that are holding it up learn. Jan Eminem. You did anyways and analyze the years I mean what was I mean Eminem is kind of been on the down I mean we just had now two years ago you David and I love that album it was good by. 15 grammys. So maybe these aren't names and everybody know OK but I don't think it's Donna worst jobs and like decent country or for me. I thought I would say country is probably then there's a few artists that I still listen to and I still like but a lot of the modern something comes out what the biggest artist for country was Taylor Swift and she's does not really pops up gnarled Valencia was country. Right she was a big deal unfortunately and now she's a big deal a normal music winning the album of the year which is an absolute joke I just think there're other genres that have done a worst job. Okay I'm with you there I I wanna kind of noodle on it on the best rap songs last ten years ago. I gotta feel like a trophy candidates into the makes why don't want the poppy wrap I don't want like you want real rap but I CL IC yelling at docs I see what's insane about the Kendrick Lamar say only because I'm not a huge fan of rap like awards show kind of stuff. 'cause it's hard to understand what they're saying. I get was an awesome performance that's what I Tex I actually text that directly to my ego that ranks are staying. You don't like the song fine but I wonder in those situations when you watch a guy like Kendrick if you've never heard him before. That performance was so captivating yes and he's a faster rapper. Then I wonder how many of the words re able like how much were you able to understand yeah. Opposed to maybe getting caught up in the performance 'cause it's a very visual performance. Where he comes out and hand cops any moves on moves around and goes back to the jail cell. I wonder how much he was able to listen to the words opposed to being captivated with the performing well and I think it's just hard to understand what you're saying closer kind of following a public what's going on stage I've always thought that way about rapid heart I'm not a huge fan of the owner rap concerts for that reason it's it's hard music to Condit taken lie and where is if you sit down and maybe just listen to this on. You would have a much different interpretation are feeling about it than if you saw something live in electric. I kind of crap like 60% of it yeah what he was trying to say I went to bed beyoncé Jay-Z concert the wife Wendy that two years ago in Seattle we did that and cheesy I mean that was an amazing performance the and you can follow along. You all the all of the songs when you know the songs you know the words even if you can't he's kind of mumble along he's still though he Sam yeah you have everything memorized yet. Insisting dots on the mammoth HR text line on this one let's the music in general has done a bad job and I downs rockets own nothing these days. Foo Fighters seriously Sprague after the fighters are still below the Foo Fighters and I do I love the food for them to some of the genre like one hander won artist cannot save a genre practice look at the collective sum and how do you feel about it. Another one country has not just been messing the bed last ten years it goes back even further than acts yeah. So a lot of people green news with you on that one is distancing thing to think about I think. Country for people to follow country modern day south it really drives me crazy like that the new techno beat kind of country music you're just shake your head like really that's that's what we're commonalities days of Kona country to know I have the pressure of trying to converge decency cannon to be a rap fan. You gotta you can do this and I got faith and you topped only five if anybody can do and its friends break we've got a fantastic show at 1230.

June -- don't want an Islamic definitely got three more pairs to give away their little lazy yesterday we had thought I have to give away in two days later won yesterday yeah we made a mistake we did get a tweet during the break our man I really thought at Peter Johnson was going to Missoula how. Base have. Chance to all of lol man Steve bad how little you know that's a little and be treating gimme a city of these give me settle bigger Missoula. Let's what are they talking is really think was of the year around topics Montana football and basketball yeah. That's the Afghan with the Geico and I imagine it's kinda like gay worse version. I like Portland like they have no pro sports teams right so they just are running inning and everything. It's his national stories. I don't know what the population is Liz Mozilla's probably about 850000. Yeah like that you just take a stab no it is 69000 according to 2013. Really 69000 people yeah that's the market you think Beckett landed spray gets a little disrespect that I can do better than 69000 mile population may be the pot on lost for the state of Montana 800 and profitable big yes I'll take that back out back maybe move on up from Missoula. Godspeed to you buddy NBA trade deadline less than 24 hours way resorting movement we were had a few trades go down a yet Tobias Harris for the magic was traded to Detroit. For branding Jennings and you're so Bach. Memphis and Courtney Lee to Charlotte PJ Hairston came back to Memphis or Charlotte because they las Michael killing guy Kidd Gilchrist for the year. To an injury they needed to fill that void Courtney Lee is that for them. Pol we saw appears to be headed towards another city Adrian awards announced he's reporting that they are active leader and they are actively shopping probably saw Brian when a horse is reporting there not so I don't. That is set in you they don't I don't invite worth withhold all on Twitter about this where it's so hard to Tryon and buying into what's actually going on because there's so many differing reports out their what's actually happening what's not nice thought we. And hold all actually quote we it is not so I side but there is a quarter in Memphis. That sent out a tweet saying Conley Memphis Detroit trade talks sources tell me that Reggie Jackson would go back to Memphis and a potential deal payload that he's breaking news right. John Holland your tweet him LL keep trying bro you get one of these by blind luck adventure and how injures you don't know is the president of yet and this Christie's to either media member like you do that's not happening you're just making things up what helps it helps for the fans the fans don't know what to. Believe sometimes in right to national guys in words and how's the who's broken a lot of stuff and when horses broken stuff to pretty much gone the opposite way on Paul Gasol Miley probably Saul. He is he has an opt out clause in the end of the season. They say he's going to opt out and turn down the team's seven million dollar option. Become a free agent Chicago's not a contender so they wanna try to get value back or if they're going to trade him by which makes sense I mean in terms of peace is you can move pal Gasol is still serviceable minutes basically a rental is gonna opt out of his contract but those are kind of gambles you have to make when your team. That's looking to improve BC that all the time in baseball where you have to judge do we want to give up some young pieces draft picks may be. To go ot get somebody to help us for a couple of months in the off chance that maybe they don't resign in the Nazis yes and the NBA trade deadline is under way you've had a few moves other people Ian just rumors and reports. And again Portland and what they're going to do we got Bobby marks from the vertical sent to join us at 1230 so we can pick his brain a little bit but. It doesn't appear right now that they're actively making a move. No it doesn't did I mean there's bends all sorts of murmurs and rumors but. I would be pretty surprised at this point if they end up pull the trigger I saw Zach Lowe. Act of I did any hints I guess if you will one of his articles that may be they look to move Meyers Leonard. Because of the offseason the fact that he turned down the contract extension this past offseason. And their there's a good chance may be somebody just gives him a boatload of money this offseason and as Portland. Wanna match that cop offers so that's one of the names and I've seen thrown out their but. Really in M I have to wait until tomorrow but it feels like to me as a whole the trade deadlines gonna be a bit of a side. BA Kevin Love thrown out there. I don't know to easy to get moved or not. DeMarcus Cousins probably isn't getting get moved allies Anderson is Ryan chaos in eight you know is that euphoria is that a great deadline aside there's not a lot of huge news Blake Griffin and in LA I would be pretty surprised if he gets moved. So it doesn't seem like any kind of marquee players are going to be a change in cities. Time soon I was reading a story of what's better long term ESP ended his long in depth analysis of what's been a long term for your team because you get some teams that are. May be peace or two away so they make that move the nets thought they were that team a couple of years back when he treated a little would pick. For Gerald loss they thought Gerald Wallace would come in help them right away and put them in contender Mon night when they were willing to part with a first round pick. But ESPN broke this down and Jess Daley gets no real surprise but retention rate in terms of guys he actually keep longer. Drafting is better for your team long terms in acquiring talent because a lot of these guys maybe have opt out clauses. Or they're restricted free agents right or in the case of like an heir to follow for example. You rent him for a couple months and you know the market's going to be out more money than you wanna pay for a guy like that so no real shocker but. Acquiring a guide me through the trap and the draft is a way better than going out in May be making me an irrational trade and hoping that a guy for two or three months pans out for. One they're under team control for it for a certain amount of time which always helps to try and hold on to ms. long is as you once and NEC these unrestricted free agents sometimes it hamstrings are a little bit that we we saw that would NIC Batum when he went out got debate offer from Minnesota. But ultimately Portland decided to match seat so you have the ability even if they go out hit the market get a good size offer Meyers Leonard. I'll be the same way this year but the have a chance to go out and try and match whatever offer he gets. On the open market there's no surprise there that's why they both of us are Connie in the and the same mindset of hoping that nothing major happens I guess the next 24 hours you hold on the roster. Because I did it with it with a difficult schedule the second half and starts on Friday when Golden State. I think he had a better chance of maybe slip and a couple of games and ending up in the ninth seed in the Western Conference in and retaining that first round draft you know the cool part about hoops and baseball into sports we level lie aura that the trade deadlines actually fun for fans edit yeah this movement there's actual base every year in the baseball deadline there's always big names and there's always intrigue in Portland because it's it's the main showing talent and when there's rumors of could dig a lot make a move everybody wants to know what's gonna eventually happen I'm just glad that this should Baz Mohammad stuff I'm -- out with you there that move would have just done nothing salary now that would have been a war zone I would had to read people's tax that said oh man you guys to understand what this move does for port land never how good he was in high school. Yeah I watched him a nice guy Watson at that it was the day was a big deal anyways he was here at the LSI Hadley is Dominic illness is the it's the world games US saying. Verses that we haven't this year US savers the world hoop Summitt who summit yeah I watched him at the hoop summit park where he went to UCLA. I was so unimpressed or think he's just pass fat but need positioned themselves well and he's kind of a ball hog I I wasn't really that impressed with him watching him his last year high school yeah yeah I was it was always a big name was always known. It's one of the stranger back series to remember the backs rate as father and kind of gently pushed him in basketball. That was a whole weird or deal him in OJ Mayo. Really weird stories. Huge names in high school and NBA players saying they just cannon never panned out that was as sexy zebra that adkins Jason quick senate tweet earlier today ends of the top high school prospects about you know 1520 years ago our long ago was now. And number eleven on that list was Dan Dickau for the year that he tweeted out and you go back and you look at all the top high school prospects of those years. And you go through seven and is some among you recognize in and a lot of the other ones who were operating kids in the country. It just never they never accomplish who isn't who is number one on that list allied let me go find the it would give first couple names were big code live well I mean that's right it's a little line here's a list I got to right now and number two was baron Davis and I and another three Larry Hughes it's all three of those guys turn into something. Then you got Edwin Daniels. Tony Harris I love Tony Harris Kenny broader one of my favorites. Will lay three Archie Miller to go dean Oliver oh yes Jerry curse all fans that is legitimately for 310 and a number eleven is standing capped. Dan de counts. It's funny target 1997 as the as the class of 97 Dan dig down high school is truth and if you let people love Indy temporary high school. All right so here we go NBA front office insider for the vertical Bobby marks would join the shown next to break down the NBA trade deadline at. And what he thinks about the blazers making a move. Welcome back in the 1080 the fan certain spray served up by B dobbs. NBA trade deadline. It all end tomorrow at noon our time and the Portland TrailBlazer a lot of cap space and some young assets were always curious what the blazes are gonna deal would GM Neal all shake. So we're bringing on the verticals Bobby marks easy NBA front office insider on Twitter at Bobby marks 42. He was a front office man with the nets for twenty plus years he joins us on the deal mortgage at. Mobile hot line Bobby thanks for joining us in Portland the trade deadline rapidly approaching. What do you make of the blazers current situation both on the court and financially in their books of where the rat right now. Well on the court they've achieved everyone's expectations you know especially where. You know where they where you know last summer where he used fortunate and you're starting line at the spontaneous and unity cabinet. Electric free agency in India and you brought education any mixed treat pre admission in. But to be what they are right now it is really credible I need to be shouted spotted. A note and how to play a priest goes it's it's pretty fluid. But they've done a great job this year you know carried it in his group they're developing some of these young kid to come rather that cabin in Kentucky Tennessee tickets went a little bit which. It would Damien. Com and you know mid east and you know I don't crap is one of my favorites that are Spain they've got a they've got a slight chance you know they you know they can play other got a real change. So they'll be determined what seemed like an interest or Houston and kind of behind them. You'd do it the next couple days. Yet the trade deadline is tomorrow body you mentioned a player there that you have written about recently and that was CJ McCollum who's who's IDC having a pretty strong year lemon Damian Miller earned a backcourt. And tanned and you said that you would hang up the phone if teams call about CJ McCollum if you were in the blazers front office why is that. What kind of put it up circuit step carriers. I. I probably should that matter are just ideas like. How he had laid which would you know locks tight game get our picture and up and players and those rookie contract. We're you've got to that's such a manageable number and and where the cap is gonna go the next few years you know that number species going to be worked with the minimum. And you can control that contract in that we know that you that would which CJ kind of at his level. If you would on the open market you know it is that it would be should now probably time eight. And it takes so just a big you know we have these rookies in their achieving their play but you've got to hold onto. Where time with Bobby marks of the vertical Alienware now skis news said that he just unveiled a couple weeks back you can find him on Twitter app Bobby marks 42. And you can check out his team trade guides on Twitter he's got a lot of front office experience twenty plus years. With the net I wanna stick with C Jane dame there and you know there have been some nationally as one in particular that we brought up about two weeks ago. Bill Simmons on his podcast when he was stock and fake trades in just scenarios. He brought up a fake trade with CJ McCollum into the cabs for Kevin Love and even if that's unrealistic. His point was with CJ in Damon. That woody woody looking after the next ten years may be a seven seed congratulations I think that was exactly what he said. You feel exactly the opposite they're using those are two cornerstone pieces that you should absolutely gold around. It is poor it was a situation where they'd cap space you know I know that got a bunch right now. In yesteryear. Bunched suburb you know summitry in June. And them you know action it's make or at the catalyst keeps them in the middle income but. And you know not really a way to get better I would I would probably had maybe you know how can you lose peace surrounded acute in part of it and he'd be looking that direction but. I'd I mean you get past that to QB teams that aren't going to be okay sheet. In the west is wide open. And you can go into action you know summer everything that at Portland can make it accurate they're you know they can get up and you know that 34 I've arranged you know act ad is at stake so. There's some of those home run deals you know it to Kevin lover or that nature you know 00 we don't work out. So I would kind of be a little bit skeptical what sort of like that. Yeah about remarks is our guest Seth front office insider for the vertical and you know I think the other way that everybody around your China you we we look at how do you improve the team and really there's there's tracers draft. And there's free agency now we know the blazers make did the playoffs this year they lose their first round picks that's cut out the window it sounds like they're probably not gonna make a move tomorrow. So the trades are cut out the windows so in terms of improving the roster your your down to free agency this off season. And the blazers have always had bad you know problems trying to convince big name free agents did to come to Portland. Why do you think that is an if you were working maybe in the blazers front office how would you go about potentially changing the strategy to try and change that. This Turkey should watch out forest in March 1 day where he yelled guys can be bought at a contract still be eligible to play out so. Where it would Portland how their bird burst structure right now talent so much room they can be a player comment deadline. You know it's it's it's there's nothing about nothing happened in the next. In the next couple plays there in regard to Portland I mean. I would I don't know who would want to play there you know which it towards sports count really. You've got the chicken based news incredible. And when you put a good product on the court you know. You know they're they're behind your back anymore you know rocket product you're still there's so Reeves or in originally step but it's. I like what you did last summer where wish need to. Deep dish you know a little bit of an overpay. But take trying to got ahead of the fall a little bit with where kids are gonna be this summer with which York on the caps kicks in they kind of set themselves up so it will be just interest in what they duke it retain their own guys in the summer or they go out with. With some of these other changes. Our guess is Bobby marks of the vertical on tour wrap Bobby marks 42. Let let's kind of play hypothetical GM when you look at the Portland roster right now when you kinda look at the open market assuming they don't make a move by the deadline tomorrow. What's a player out there that you think Portland might not only have a chance to lower but you think would actually be really good fit with what they're doing right now. What makes it into tricky free agent market this summer you know you can you know you know some of the positions that are loaded. You know that show her position you know you've got nation you know motorists in New York I had parents shortly several Omar which tricked it shall. You know a guy like external like certain that (%expletive) what the culture is in it. In Portland I don't think shock the other fortunate that the eight you have you know being in at that point just because it is not it could could market. You know a lot of it will be sterner what happens now crap whose breach. You know is restricted region. And every shake show. Unfortunately this is not the summer Indian market you're gonna have a point it's quite a million it it grew. And with what part of all most of their roster back to distract you that jokes. That that the eye towards you know cap space really called for for the summer seventeen when you've got that you get heavy hitters out there you've got the Westbrook in the curry in the late groups in the world and an act. That's interest again want to kind of way Siena bullies it's. They went into the roster as quickly as a candidate who until does and did another one of the players on this roster right now that as a chance to maybe leave this off season. Is Meyers Leonard he turned on the contract essentially going into this year in and out of if you follow what the fan base says about him very closely but he is pretty polarizing disable this year. And in ritzy. What you kind of think of for his future I mean does is you get a lot on the open market with such a big offer or is somewhat of a disappointing season knocked his value down. Well I think Jordan up body of work for him I think a lot of speed at which is ridiculous look. Yeah that was the other Mets series last year re edit its series but each sport that there wasn't very much Eric. And I I totally understand O Portland's. You know speaking this you know in October it would not get an extension because you need at Indy you become a trigger worked a little bit. I think what Portland. He's restricted. You have the right to match you can let him go out get it all Turks but I would be I would be ten I would become it has its part came out there to do something just because of you know there's still that little bit at that I know. You know he's been you know you know this is trying to disperse all year you know playing and everything but you know he's a young player he's one of those you know those young big tech had a stress of war a little bit but. I think it'll be kind of catamounts came that this summer this year if you talk with a look at all first. Blame it because of that is if you were in the front office and for the would you maybe think about shopping him to tomorrow before the deadline. Well that was one of the guys I mention you know because it is you know YouTube that the keys you know org and control in July until somebody committed with that offer we saw last year when it would pour actually did. Did the offer sheet with each cantor where you know Oklahoma City was in control than you got to fort yet to make sure what you wanna do as far as you know match or or or let him go and every game but. You'd be intriguing name you know if he does you know on the open market. You know in the next few days just because they're happy how young he is an inch keyed a little bit different than an expired concert just because you can control. Which I'm with the articles front office insider Bobby marks to earnings in the Gil mortgage mobile hot line you mentioned Allen Crabbe a little bit. What's what's a number this cap jump I think is gonna still surprised people even know we know the caps gonna go lob. But what's a number you think Allen Crabbe should be looking out on the open market assuming continues to play the way he has been. Between any intent. To yeah ten. Yeah and it's it's it's a byproduct of there's not that many that we have to you know you got you the road and you you know. Repeals restricted wade is you know you know Miami you know you've got two big dogs with content. In Durant you know you've got to choose that you guys had you know throw long term marriage and it's just not that many. There's just that many wins out there and there's just so many teams what would chops beast that there's gonna be used yet there's going to be the trademark green McChrystal and overall the actuary that. The minimum you know in the league and you know gonna make that 1415 million dollar contract but the other day he's he's a hot commodity there. Where is the job of Terry Stotts among NBA coaches rank for you so far this season. Our private coach of the year. You know it all set with without even what's happening in Golden State in the chairs thrown and it would to any case she's done and in Toronto I image on paper when you looked at that even in the summer you sort you know lottery. The victim being seven seat and you know fighting for planet spa at this time in years is pretty remark. Got a lot of fun off his experience I saw Sean Marks get to GM job growth and that's. Our Roddick I guess I guess it's it's pretty ironic I assume though Bob. He actually did not. He did not they offered you know what we what we believe here and he had made a decision he's gonna chuck. All well I was gonna say is that a jog you'd ever be interest in or is that like such an untouchable situation right now that it's tough. I think you have to go in there with the right hand eye hand. You know really. Basically saying how long has rebuilt the tapes and usher coated in that it's not something they don't wanna hear that that's not maybe eat the chops or you. But it is it is that you analysts you know I didn't think in recent wave a lot of the summer all of us and get some you know no match treatments and stuff they're going to be. Did everything but it today evening and it is only one birdie up. No leak and you know at GM job very appealing to those. You're in control and you get the bill that the way you Ichi. There ego Bobby marks from the vertical front office insider you can find him on Twitter app Bobby marks 4220. Plus years of tropics front office experience. Within as Bobby thanks for joining us in Portland to free use the at a trade deadline to your thoughts on know what you think the moral the blazers should do. Sound good thank you guys. There ego Bobby marks of the vertical does really good work he's got teen guides again you can find on his Twitter account braced on every team's. Composition where they are Iraq going into the trade deadline expires tomorrow at noon so who's all hyped up for this offseason to free agents now hi this is the air guidelines olina. He actually thought that was really good stuff from Bobby and I thought there was something really instinct he said mentioning. The off season. And Portland will discuss that next on 1080 the fan welcome back get its 1249 we have got a lot in the second hour as well clay Travis and out kick the coverage. It's gonna join us at 130 he's got dies at some say about John King in his patent in a salary and that's putting it politely. Also Blake Griffin has finally decided talked to the media. Al-Qaeda to punch anybody in the face of the press conference or league arena clear there he contemplated it OK just kind of thing in about a sigh Ramona shall burn it was like you know one answer and afraid you're really short to. I don't like short people. You say and I should go to the end pose a locker and accept the clippers are in town yeah I think that the best Zagat and a way the message you're sending to Tahiti you on The Sopranos. And he's gonna punch you right out of phase I studies marvel liar Canada and 1080 the fan dot com the less Schwab tires podcast after the show will tweeted out really good stuff on the trade deadline in the Portland trailblazers. And I that was an interesting point where you brought up. How in past we've talked about free agency in the summer in. We don't get our hopes up in fact on this show we talked numerous times how we just name me the biggest free agent Portland's ever got. And nobody ever gives you a good name we almost got Greg Monroe never that those critical almost he thought about it. And you know we're just traditionally we're used to that Bobby marks kind of thinks differently late despite history he'd ask Portland could be very attractive city. You may be nice superstar player but he really good. Player that could add to this roster yet if that's the case are gonna continue to rely on Damian and CJ acted to further developing gets the point where they can carry the team the go become of the ancillary pieces that we asked him you know OK you're going to do this this year's round of free agency in the offseason what is some of the names the biggest vanity. Rob there was this on Whiteside. That's a pretty good name that's a good name I'm quadruple double this Hassan Whiteside at assign a Portland. Yeah might might answer still tends to only know I just I'm I'm just jaded when it comes to talking. Free agents coming to Portland and it'd just got a further highlights did the process that now this organization gonna have to go through. Because of those are the biggest names out there even if you go sign Hassan Whiteside that's good I love it is good defenses that are blocked shots rebounds. All I'm cool with that I don't necessarily think that puts you in any category of the top fourteen in the Western Conference quite yet. I was so puts you behind San Antonio Golden State a lot to see what happens in Oklahoma silly don't know what delay maybe Kevin Durant and some go into another powerhouse in a lesson and it propels that team. A further up in the rankings so you're gonna have to kind of wait until the summer 2070 wins in bigger names are out there if you really wanted to make this. Blowing you know the thing to think about too with free agency because he's right this class is not what 2017 is going to be to rank and one up for one year with Oklahoma City. Still make 22 point two million. And then when that cab jumps even more. He gets to cash a 2017 and decide what he wants do along with Russell Westbrook maybe they leave local Maceda together or maybe it is signed long term they wanna play together. So twenty seventeens for sure better. The Portland with that twenty to 25 million dollars of capsaicin they're going to have. You gotta you gotta look to add something. And I traditionally have been in the camp of who have you gotten it's hard to lure big big time free agents I don't think they're gonna do that. But I do think the core of Dane CJ. I assume they're going to sign Stotts to a long term 34 year deal it would be a mistake to not Nazis and neo c.'s ability to kind of herb developer relationships with players. I actually think this could be a year or maybe they surprised a little bit and they get a player higher than maybe we expect because of this team finishes in the seventy let's say that's where they finished. Decent as an figure it out you Todd we don't know in Sacramento's fallen apart. If you live with medical play Portland in the seventh seed you're telling me that like a second or third tier type player who's really good value in the NBA. Doesn't view that with the young back court of games he Jane Terry Stotts and say. Not only is it a fun way to play basketball arena but that's a serious contender did you say where you that would on Whiteside right. And there are a lot of variables in free agency but I any of you had if you dot a us on Whiteside. Mixed with they Damon CJ I think that both Jew right into the top four top three territory based off your guard play between those two pitchers stable and. And visit those of the dominos that'll have to fall though because in order to to be a more formidable team you'll have to go out and sign a guy like that some white side so that's a step one and if he doesn't end up coming damn where you lab with the rest of those free agents are I would love. The thing that Damian Miller and CJ McCollum are having good enough year and this team has been and to the point of of the pleasant surprise. That guys will take another look at Portland this offseason and say hey look they do have salary cap they can pay me as much if not more than. And anybody else in the league it's a town that double show up every single night and they love and care about the blazers you around. Those are all things and I would look at it from the free agent but unfortunately Intel I see it. It's hard for me to get to that point because when the salary cab jumps a lot of teams are gonna have money to spend yet time and that's the problem with the guys like Allen Crabbe and guys like Mars Lander that there are there will be teams out there this offseason. That are gonna throw a ball all the money at them Meyers Leonard because of his size and his ability to issue an out crap because of the way he's playing he's three Indy guy everybody needs 3-D guys so. Do you lose them I mean they still part of the rotation is there's a lot of questions at that still need to be answered on a hopeful that it can happen. But I kind of neat to see it before I believe I was a little surprised the number for crab eating is eight to ten I'm not surprised I'm really not but the way he's played and his age. Why I think would then capped jump I would think that go to ten that the U that you would be higher than that yet because I drink a traditional eight to ten is gonna move to like a ten to twelve or thirteen now. Like I think that's healthy organ of music app maybe I'm wrong on that on its Amaechi to see what they do was down crab. But he's rhyming he got to keep them he's a three Indy guy and he's 23 years old yet he's only 23 you have to have Allen Crabbe back on this team but. Again it just goes to as did kind of make you think about. Is dame different is dame different superstar in Portland that we had a long time where. Him paired with CJ who starting get a lot of recognition probably already has the most improved player a lockdown. Bobby mark has Allen Crabbe is the sixth man of the year whether you disagree with that or not he has found crap any hasn't Stotts as coach of the year wrapped. So I mean you kind of look at all that on paper that young nucleus of the UK every if you can't recruit free agents with fat. Yeah I mean if you can't let it die out I don't know IV can't do it this year with this team with a right even playing in surprising people beating the big is win total wreck. I don't know what's gonna change in the next two. Three years old idea getting sick and if all this offseason and and I know we're wherever skis a little bit but what when you look at some of the names on some lights at for example some of those second tier names of some white sides not a franchise player but he's a very well and play some people wonder if he has bought maybe he's got into it is youngster maybe he develops into a but it you can go out and sign one or two of those style players in this offseason then when you get in that year 2000 at seventeen new pair a couple more guys. Would Damon CJ and Alan crowd continues to grow. All of a sudden maybe your chances come a little better into them. Send somebody taxing into the man with HR tech sign almost got Paul Millsap best but he was a restricted free agents are you Tom maxed another one may be ball the wizard Williams I remember Walt Williams I love this I Sox. Somebody's got eighteen PDF snow again he was traded he didn't choose to come to PDA acts a lot of people forget that. Go get bogey talk where we followed that I love bogey I disagree with Jason Zweig and I'm bogey. I would be all in on getting DeMarcus Cousins I think Cheney senior I change scenery would be great for that guy and he's a young player but. Free agency for Portland and it's going to be key man because I don't think they're making a move here now it and that's gonna happen tomorrow my history and this summer is going to be massive what they can do in the future again will we'll tweet out Bobby marks interview. About remarks of the vertical with weed out after the show clay Travis of fox sports. And out kick the coverage or join us at 130 to talk about the Sean Keane and Peyton Manning story.
