Thanks for listening to the prime time with Isaak NC podcast brought to you on the stand by your local less Schwab tire sinner. Doing the right thing since 1952. Prime time months and it is also and I don't like okay. We're gonna. This is a fourth of July regulation over the primetime retires against you how we buy American dream and Grand Slam I correct. By Ericsson I'm I'm really I'm just kind of chasing you know prime time on an eighty closer. What the. Welcome into the program. Saint Paul rodeo flying solar right now although I do see eye to grab my clinch. Mitch regulating his weight to the tent. I guess some if you're sitting on the any of the freeways you understand the traffic. Could BH states made bad today as we kick off this beautiful fourth of July weekend. But this is actually one of our favorite shows the around here at the saint already oh come Mumbai in yes I see him. Making a fashionably late. And dreads ladies joke of the. Crowds going nuts a steady build bases. You can figure out how to get to the seeds it's a crowd at the side here rob is currently tried to data weighed the throngs of women. That error or harass him right now will be mid day. Let him go it did the until he gets this senior disable a rodeo the reception for one Isaac crop it's it's unbelievable I never seen anything like you believe all these women that. Unbelievable I'm off with a stick I want what you do for you penny I heard that it was a really good one do they need we need to what do me do what it do that was pulled I don't know on par. Within the majestic same caller now I know what it's like to be like Justin Bieber at the survey and trying to get up to the stage. Laura Evans Scott we need security you're adoring public they demand excellence and they're getting there right now with a great as Oprah who her out of breath maybe the only man wearing a golf shirts they've already. Now while police that look better than you and you got a white teacher on the with so about this is the cool easy breeze of any town USA that's what this is a call this looks summer breeze. All right we have Wi-Fi we do have a life side and you're right over their ski that well I just got here. Hold on line at the you seem a bit. You seem a bit and you'll see frazzled right now you think he's France plan a didn't necessarily work to the you know list of their abilities have a hot take on I'm waiting for your thought on compromised sports plan base not that the you were not a fan of the chin now Dwight Howard plan they look Parsons a nice player but he's had two knee injuries any had a I think with the public modified micro fracture yeah. I mean Max money to that. Guy was really freaky risky yeah especially considering the aegis you passed them with the math these last year for. Basically less money who was coming off a very serious injury and I get the killings can be different than. That a knee injury but as you said modified micro fracture surgery two years in a row. That your your knee is ended your season I'm with you that does seem a bit risky. I think when when Portland fans have been conditioned. I I think be a little flustered when quote unquote plan a doesn't work guiding clearly plan a which Chandler Parsons and Dwight Howard. And for anyone that it's kind of Fukui net realized that we Chandler Parsons and Dwight Howard. And a roster fairly similar to what is the Houston Rockets that you know her to do what the blaze had you talking overall talent. But here's a rocket team maybe run the Western Conference finals two years ago. Yet no I just don't want you know me and we don't need to hash out the Dwight Howard thing they're not getting him now I just don't. Like Dwight Howard I think Dwight Howard is. I just don't think he's the type of player they should pursue it like if you're if you're looking at plan A from my perspective I'm just some schmuck on the radio my idol had the acumen you posted as clearly your schmuck on the radio. But whose son Mike cited Harrison Barnes to me looks like a much better plan a in a much more attainable play any quite frankly are getting Dwight Howard I think get a better they're only highlight our that you didn't sound bites. CI don't because the only hope you had of getting Dwight Howard was Chandler Parsons using his relationship well guess what you can get an error and if so you're you're several steps away from Dwight Howard why that was not gonna give you a median. Hassan Whiteside at least had them on the list it doesn't sound like they've met with him now he just made his decision in Portland wasn't really of a factor but. And you'll use for at least upon to try to make sure that the price got worried he'd go actually think Dallas was upon Portland it doesn't sound like even met with a and he did meet with Dallas. Weird though that for as much as we talk about us on Whiteside and maybe this is his own doing but it shouldn't Celek there was a huge market for him. Thank you would think a guy that's you know what I that the block shots the rebounds the way he does. That there would have been like this this huge kind of conglomerate looking to meet Adam but it sounds like it was as Dallas and Miami. With media side of fool's gold with Portland and I don't know if that's the Hassan Whiteside is doing or if people just. It worked that interested. I got to believe that it's it's it's maybe it's it's more of them Hassan Whiteside just saying enough to not because the lakers back to the big for Timothy Molotov. If there about bad free agent signings in this got a new era that. 94 million dollar cap I give you the drunken Russian crushing a burrito for the Los Angeles Lakers. That's on the worst but I I that is the worst yet not think that is the worst but again Mika you said this yesterday and I think it's right. We we we should focus on the money is much the money has to go somewhere exactly in the same thing with Evan Turner I don't think he should focus and we'll get into him I don't think he should focus on the for your seven mine which looks. To be ridiculous for a guy like Evan Turner housing market right now we're all living in San Francisco right. They are not going to be happy paying three million for a starter home but it's the it's the price tag but to finish the conversation on you know. The blazers plan A I find that plane need to be very underwhelming one they weren't gonna get it in do you. Parsons and Howard yes any perfect world that's pretty good. But it isn't a perfect world Howard is much older than Whiteside Howard is known to be a malcontent. But Chandler Parsons is coming off of of Tunisia he did not finish one he played in Dallas for two years he didn't finish either of the two years. Very very very risky play I am I'm actually surprised that that was Neil assays planet but if you defer to him. You know that's what his eyes saw he'd try to get it he didn't get it but but for Whiteside I think the reason there wasn't as big of a market for him is because of what we talked about. Earlier in the week and that is I think Darrell walker I think a lot of the leak. Goes line. Whispers. Eight EU because it's there. We know what he can do on the basketball court and music. If if you needed a center who can we do not want this on Whiteside based on what he does on the basketball court the problem is the whispers were. In this got around the leak that bad as a guy. Who when he got his 25 million dollars or whatever he got. He would disappear. And that's what I think the consensus is on the other son like that and I think that is the danger. For Miami and that was the danger for Dallas and that was danger from Portland but for a team like Portland. If you are willing to risk that I would have been willing to risk that because of his skill set out because the blazers again. Art just chicken down the list does not getting this guy not getting the next guy let's go on down to the next. And I think that's somebody with that on the text program I I think what's beings Bandelier we art tent yes were our tents the announcement a in the passwords in rubio who sixteen. Or maybe 2060 tribe in this film brilliant. I think a your kids like want to act that aren't busy staring at your hairy arms and I think. In this big guy that got brought up here on the text program and I think this. To me kind of hits a tone with a with a lot of people I think in the city of roses are saying it's not this that you lost out to Chandler Parsons. It's it's it's not that you got rejected it in that particular case it's that you lost out. To Memphis again and I I think. And it would we've got such good. And now kind of a red ass sort of mentality. When it comes to it to freeagent theater as well you sure it's been twenty years since you've landed one what frank grant I think it's about twenty years ago that you've landed a quote unquote right yeah. Since you've waited your last. Now I guess big name free agent in. You can debate whether or not prying grant was that. Eight list free agent herb you know maybe a solid B. And I think the notion of Miami or Dallas to New York or Los Angeles I think there's some. Except instead that I think in Memphis rubs some people to have wave where you kind of throw up your arms DC really meant. Silently download it to Memphis is there a couple things with that it's not just Memphis now there's a relation there are several places it's their wine Chandler Parsons and Mike Conley. Apparently have been talking for many years. About teaming up as a matter of fact if you talk to insiders around the league. When they looked at Parsons Parsons was not going back to Dallas in the reason he wasn't going back to Dallas has Mark Cuban pissed him off. Chandler loved it there he had a good relationship with Mark Cuban Mark Cuban said I'm not going to pay you Max money Parsons is like what the hell man up. And so there's a whole Sadler and yet and so he's like I'm out Agassi wasn't about to douse. So I think when the league win when insiders in the league saw that it was meant to some Portland. Portland had about a 5%. Chance. And the reason they had about a 5% chances because Chandler Parsons and Mike Conley are very close and they have been close for a long time. And they have talked. Many years up prior about teaming up and this was their chance Dallas wasn't getting Mike Conley. In Portland was getting Chandler Parsons the other relationship the Parsons has is JB Dicker staff who was the head coaching Houston once they fired. Mikhailov Mikhail. Parsons is really close with Campbell he's an assisted in Memphis now. So it seems to me that the the future of the trailblazers is tied to Damian load unseat Jimmie calms ability to make freaking friends around the league because. More and more of these deals are being done. Between buddies well it sounds like the blazers made a compelling pitch if you listened to words or ask your early in the day it's not like Parsons. Yeah very much liked what he heard from Portland and very much like we heard from Damian Miller and that was one of the most impressive part was Miller but as you said. You know there are some circumstances they are they just happen to kind of crop the issue and you got shot in the back of their only certain but I just think over for. Did the people of Portland it's just it's another slap in the face it's another. Not even aliens free agent that you couldn't get to come here you couldn't get in here with any of the centers that you wanted. You couldn't get Dwight Howard and this and you couldn't get us on whites that listen couldn't get out or four to listen. And you couldn't get Chandler Parsons on the hook and I think that's. I think it's just it's it's a very frustrating time bed. You know maybe this is on us what is what is the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over expecting different results while this is this is Portland. Probably that I would ask you why you're surprised. You shouldn't be at least they tried though I mean you got to tried they tried. Ed and to give me a little state credit I know that not everybody has their hair blow back by Evan Turner. And then also up apparently it's still out there they're going very aggressively after pal assault. Oh by the way they're not going to get pounce on I wouldn't think so no but they're gonna go aggressively at and like I like trying to you know there's there's a plan BC look plan they went after you swung and missed. I brother Neil Osage have a plan a and sweet for even if I don't necessarily agree with it they just sit on your Nancy there's nothing we can do. No question so that's least try and I are only beginning gate it's all you can see him just kind of just moving on down the list. Evan Turner's interest dean. Lot of people don't like hit a lot of people I talked to give it. Giant man. But there are I've heard I prefer to look at it from all states perspective because. Fans are just you look at it and what he says the GM Breaux always causes calls it the vacuum right now the only get a look at this do backe but if you look at it. Try to look at it may be a little bit more to his perspective I think. It will make a little more sense. And we'll talk about that when we come back Evan Turner is now a TrailBlazer routed Saint Paul rodeo and try to connect to the Internet at my apologies are being late. Rated this parking issues that there was a war I almost ran over a horse said well you were on horseback and that's really probably mistake one is the tried to make it out your course though fear not bless you for try the try to get into the scheme of things but. I wrote my old Dolly down here. Took me awhile but she's parked over the air and I'll get all set up here and then we'll get don't from the Saint Paul rodeo but. Blazers some land Evan. Turner. You isn't running for sixth man of the year pretty good. Maybe not be that's next 314 on the and as I. This is a fourth of July week additional. I'm John Dyson consumed how the American dream and grandpa by a right on Jay Nady both trim. But Taylor can imaginable question pertains to you as a deterrent. I would never guessed it's the newest member of your hometown team advent of the charter. Blazers signed Evan Turner and by the way for those of you picked up a Evan Turner is got a he eat he can play the one in the three. He was the sixth man in Boston. Can't shoot the three all good ball handler. You know plays defense. It's easy he's got a very. The Jack of all trades detonated fanned out come back to that Weaver Brothers brewing in the please assign Evan Turner adds. Men. Or good grief if if three options. Three looking at Petit an hour ago for the middle option men and go back and that's that most people are saying I I think you've got better. I think Evan Turner makes you better any key makes you more versatile and had a key GE gets you better at it in an area that you needed and that's defensively. Look if seated Damien are gonna be your two guards they're gonna be on the floor at the same time you have to get better. A phone from the defense standpoint and Evan Turner is a guy that again completely different positions. Can play on the floor and I believe I heard that every turner said that he did the we used audience got to start each of you starting three. And Evan Turner is the guy that you can. When you play an elite point guard when you play Chris Paul when you play a Mike Conley junior. You can maybe hide Dane or CJ off on someone else and every turner can take. The you know the other teams whatever that is their athletic wing or or whatever guards so. It Chinese slash or distributor may be can he can have CJ or dame play off the ball a little bit and he bring it up. He adds some versatility to you and I looked Evan Turner is a good player he makes you better. I just don't think he is the big name that you wanted the hear when Winfrey agency came calling because I think a lot of this was built up that this was gonna be the year. That they finally broke through it and and then the money thing too and I think that is bothersome people that you just have to get rid of the idea of money as you said because in this sour cap area that relive it in the NBA. The money so astronomical there's so many bad contracts being handed out you can't get hung up on the catch it's not your money. So he Evan Turner was the number two overall pick of the sixers. In the John Wall draft and then the sixers traded him to Indiana in the the train DC I think you got traded in the Danny Granger deal. Can Maryland yeah or no. May be. It was the other way around but he was involved in the anything to do with Indian he went to India for a couple years. And he's most recently been awesome awesome signed him as a free agent he's unrestricted guy he was not a guy that was on the blazers radar at least it. It seemed that he wasn't but. I actually although on a limb and say this. You know I don't like the Parsons Howard combo that they try to get yes. I actually liked turner better than Parsons the early yet and there a couple of reasons for that one and I just think Parsons is never gonna be the same. His injuries made him a huge risk that no one's talking about a couple of plumbing to two years in a row with the same me it's like Wesley Matthew although. Matthews so this was an Achilles. But with Parsons I just don't think you can count on him. You know. Health wise. If he if you could prove to me that he we're gonna be healthy which you know review that if if somehow you were able to I really like Parsons nice player but he is not that good defensively in the blazers have got to get better defensively. And this is why I like turner better than Parsons is. You mentioned the word and this is the word in it's it's it's the same word that. The blazers had I used a lot last year with a lot of guys in its versatility. The blazers obviously. Are hitching their wagon to Damian Willard unseat him column. But did downsides Damien load and CJ McCollum is one defense they are they they are an undersized. Backcourt. That that doesn't play very good defense you have to try to rectify that problem and in this news of the blazers gold. Of the go all the way they go some of the way to rectifying that. With like you said playing turner. In different spots I think the hard part is going to be. Terry Stotts job of balancing the minutes and how these guys all play with one another because turner is a guy. Who generally dominates the ball he averaged almost five assists in Boston he can pass very good passer but do you already have one and 18. Ball handler on this team so I think it's going to be more about. How they choose to fit him in but when they do find. It hopefully they will find the right mix he is going to be a big help. Defensively to those guys out front and he's very versatile at the three as well. The other thing that I think fans really need to look at with this new. And again fans don't like to think about this kinda stuff because you just look on paper you wanna play fantasy GMs Evan Turner. Worth it not worth it. Neil O'Shea has to factor in all of his own free agents to. And I think that this new. Is definitely a hedge against losing Marie sparklers I think you may have actually seen the last of three car Marreese heartless in Portland. In the reason I think that is because the blazers decide Evan Turner and it could also mean the end of ballot crap. But it's hard to know what kind of money those guys gonna get that term actually more resembles heartless it is versatility that he does. Crafted to completely different player giving crab and that that what what is crap do well Kravitz is is the shooter he's a score. Evan Turner not so much in fact I would think if you're talking second unit wise and this is goes back to the whole Terry Stotts job. You know if ever interpret every turn is gonna start it doesn't mean that you necessarily he's gonna play the same minutes that CJ. And gamer played. I could see a second unit where Evan Turner they geez it is dominating the ball is being in the playmaker and you place CJ and crap off the ball. And you go with something like that to where he can be distributor he can't be a facilitator for you out there. And then what he does play with CJ gave Maurice plane hit the start of the game were in crunch time. That you can kind of do a Golden State does at times where they hide. Stepped curry on. And someone else and you get an Evan Turner that goes and and plays. You know that that the premier offensive player for the other side so I do think there's a lot of versatility there. And what are we keep talking about in the MBA kind of this position lists squad that everyone seems to be going to and I think Evan Turner. Does kinda help and in that area where you're able to kind of mix and match may be a little bit more. And it's different than markets could Wear sparkly skin taken gotta go 34 and if you really want to I guess go five if you want to play him in that dream on green roll. Turner goes the other way where he 12 with a three. Yeah I think sue the other thing is it you know it's like. It's if Evan Turner is the last domino that calls for the blazers off season there are more dominoes to come right yes. So Kevin Turner's the last one I don't think many people have a huge problem with it depending on what else they get. But because he's the first in your on this disappointment kick out of not getting planet we'll back you like all this is a terrible but especially for seventy million will again the money has to be spent. It has to go somewhere Evan Turner's not a bad way to spending he's he's a solid player who has who has a history of staying healthy. He will help you. The question is is what do they do now. It's hard to see him getting how Gasol so maybe they get one of those other senators that it's out there on an island taken it. But look how this all. YE I don't I know you're not I'm with you on that site he's older he's a really good player nobody's trashing how Gasol but I think he's like 37 years old man he went on how. I that sort of seems like desperation to. I I would assume that at this point that. That you would you be putting your eggs in the you do that. To be humble basket or may be facets of the elite or or. Or Cole Aldridge ended the whites that are from Kansas so something like that that just kind of fits ended. A little cut at the molded a beater rim protector in and kind of being young and athletic that you can kind of grow it. How this all kind of seems like you make a final piece that you would put on a team like San into yo to Philly GAAP per year to wait try to make one more run that title. That that one doesn't necessarily equate to me. You have I've I've video at it just looks like. Neal say has so much gas they said he just listing. Good players this is like all right we'll all try to get like that megabytes night. I'll try to pair a Tutsi Parsons can help me get our. Can't get them okay let's who's the next best date we'll probably has talks all right so all try to get him I mean it it doesn't hurt I guess but I. But if fit wise I don't I don't really see it. That was one of the things about Evan Turner that I wanted to say. You know I cannot remember what it is out rams another selling point of Evan Turner it was the best thing you've ever had let me tell you this you know wants to he was so dynamite well maybe I'll think it would during the break that hordes of women here we're just ready to tear your shirt off over this hot that lives in terror today Evan Turner's not terrible and the people who say he is are just. You're you're just wrong he end. When the trailblazers. Rule this sucker out. I I think that the the I think this team's. One of the great things about this team is its versatility. And CJ McCollum and Damian Miller have a lot of pressure on them and they do not have a lot of around them well guess what. They just got more around them Evan Turner is better. Did Alan crap in people are gonna go crazier that he's a better player than Alan Grant is not as good shooter. But he is a better all around player and so you are slowly incrementally disclosing yesterday. It is not a bad thing to slowly. Incrementally. Get better. And with the first new I think the blazers did that it's not overwhelming I can see why people aren't going crazy act could see why people are disappointed about planning but. Let's see what else they do this team does not have to jump out it in and hit a giant Grand Slam right out of the gate well and so I I think give it time. Wait and see what else they do they're gonna get a dig at some point. And it will it and then then you can sit down and get a lot of the Mike and Mike stuff for it now like are we on the blaze is payroll. No I think what we both are rational human between us and I don't know how realistic it was I think. Most of the disappointment comes from our own expectations. That we put on something that never works out haven't serves as Charlie Brown have to fall has asked before someone realizes that that's gonna happen. This is ten this tends to be what happens and in in police are free agency. But I also like to point out kind of what you just said last year around this time what did everyone say went Al farouq Aminu was signed and most heartless and. It just was like what's what is this. It week week to week Pandit and we ripped it and we mock it and people just rained boos down in 25 games won't. At turned out to not be the worst thing in the world than they won 44 games so before anyone just goes in rips anything apart I'm with you. Be patient wait and see what the complete product looks like it even once that's done. Wait till you see what happens on the floor that's all I have to do is point out NFL free agency I yell about this every year when it comes to the NFL. The people bitten they wind NFL free agency quote on quote. Almost always end up losing. It just it's it's one of those things where we get so caught up the names but there's no give Chandler Parsons gets his knee blown out next year. There what are we saying about that if Dwight Howard goes to Atlanta goes to Boston takes those teams. What do we say about that there was no guarantee that planet was taking that he went to the glory and so. Everyone just take a deep breath beat disappoint you ever write to be but. After your disappointment kinda wears off a little bit give this chance to see what else they can do and what events this turns into when you get on the floor. Okay. It is at 330 while we're out here at DC Paul rodeo folks we are in rodeo land. And now we will reset that only come back you'll get some of your tax loss to take a look around the rest of the NBA. And a lot of contracts being handed out stable review most of it. When we get back here's Mike. This is a fourth of July weekend edition of primetime where guys again soon. On 1080 gopher. Routed Saint Paul rodeo and it's not just a rodeo. It's the nation's greatest fourth of July rodeo and look at us they cut like cowboy Christmas yes we've we come out here. Every year really this is only my third or fourth time doing and I can't remember you skip the double cause sometimes you're up doing for opportunity things that other parts of the country. But they're saying this is one of eight. 325. People what are we. South we're south east of Portland. South of Portland yet like its key you go to like would murder or Rory yeah hang a Roscoe earth CI just came down 99 and down 99 preacher will it and point you way back through their hell. When they call them used waves yeah that's how I'd teach you out here if shafts pretty awful though it's the old for the light traffic so. Buckle up and unfortunately you're going to be forced with us for the next three and a half hours because you're not going anywhere. So ticket prices are from about eighteen dollars to just thirty dollars he cannot check out everything that's going on here at Saint Paul rodeo dot com. Her tradition we will be interviewing some. Rodeo Owens that the later that some appropriate term I think cactus Jake will be along at that. I think physical cowboys may be Arkansas Jack. For Arkansas Dave myself Arkansas a favorite of off yeah let's do that and I remember him. Media saddle source valeo. Full belly up lists the grade gusty here will be here and that's all you need to know that guiding yet nineteen cumin now. Does he's supposed to be here at some point why thought that we would play I'd I have prepared today the fan family feud it's time to play the root. I don't feel the offers are being hush hush about this they wanna give anything away well I've yet because they're the ones that we surveyed took the survey but. I don't know four going to be able to play it down and try to find a way to corkscrew against today's broadcast of thought to be fun for show like today's that we you have some free agency news. I don't know what that when they held dusty is gonna be here because I need to pit the two of you together that's true and unfortunately for us this is gonna be a very sports heavy day. It's like gun thinking MBA. It's the type that they were relate to well lots I don't think we need to break down Evan Turner too much good let's listen gravitas we've already done that. But we will reset that so that he just tuning in the blazers did get Evan Turner. And you know it's it's one of those news it's not notably her back but I can see why annual sheet dated I think. Largely he's a hedge against losing. Most likely Marie's heart was sounds like they really wanna keep Allen Crabbe because of the shooting ability. We'll see what kind of number he gets but it sounds like me be. This could mean Marreese heartless is out. Because there are there is a lot of interest in him Q will have to wait and see some other groups around around the league. What do we have we have DeMar DeRozan go on five years a 139 million with Toronto he I've been a lot of the big boys and that they've put Whiteside went back roads and re signs calmly back with Memphis. Wait what what was that like. Dwight Howard to sign with Atlanta. Oh well that's not something that just gloss over what's the deal. Three years seventy point five mil. The three year deal could not give Max money. Or is that maximum that might I would be accessed fiery guys money for three years three years seven email with the hard knocks. Well that's where he's from so it means closing games out that the Boston in the came down through Atlanta and that this to me they Dwight Howard going to Atlanta this is the ultimate man. It gives the more involved in the offense but they're going to know where this is Carmelo going to the knicks welcome to another mediocre Atlanta Hawks basketball season. Dwight Howard is not gonna make a difference there if Dwight Howard really wanted to go somewhere in compete for a ring. Dwight Howard doesn't go to Atlanta. Well I think destiny said because the blazers planning it was Chandler Parsons and Dwight Howard now. Wouldn't people be saying that if two if Dwight Howard landed him Portland well maybe even had he we'd be doing cart while some of us I wouldn't be that some people would be doing cartwheels if they got him. In the reality is around the league they look at that and go yeah now right you're a little better in the last night. Deal I just feel like with if you landed Dwight Howard in in in Chandler Parsons or Dwight Howard and Harrison Barnes something like that those those two upgrades. I look at what Houston did two years ago with that roster they had obviously it's focused around James Harden their Chandler Parsons. And that Dwight Howard which was kind of their core and to me if I look at Damien weathered CJ McCollum. And then you put it Chandler Parsons when healthier Harrison Barnes and Dwight Howard. I think your your top four team in the west. And that was a team the meter run to the Western Conference now I if you're not better than gold stayed up there in Oklahoma City trotted out better than San Antonio but. I think your prob the and that clipper range and that at that point I don't all year you features sniffing around it. But it ran as a top fourteen in the east with him. I mean it's the C saying the same things you mean they're both pretty good teams in their did in their conferences that neither of them are getting over the hump and by the way Dwight Howard is getting neither of them over the hump now so what you just said about Atlanta applies if the blazers got the white tower which was my whole point of I don't I'm not really sure why the blazers are so in on the White House. Think he's gonna go to Atlanta and that the culture it's not gonna change he's gonna want the ball more don't get the ball more. And it just it won't make any difference for the Atlanta Hawks and he'll just he'll fade away do obscurity. Like he has for the last three or four years and I think. That free agency has become in Portland. Where were sort of like the guy starving in the desert. And somebody walks up and hand here Vanilla Wafer and because your starving in in your in the desert you think that is the greatest. Bite of food you've ever had when the reality is it is a Vanilla Wafer that be fair those no wafers no they're not quite tasty did not get cold glass of milk and maybe do some don't keen gross. Feel like you that's what Chandler Parsons and Dwight Howard warbler bag you know Vanilla wafers right now I'd go away for a bit but when you're starving in the desert all my god how good is valid may have been the on so I'm all right with that turner deal forget Parsons he's gonna get hurt. There's also talk I was listening to actors break coming in they were talking about how somebody mentioned that. All the guys in Dallas teammates in Dallas couldn't stand Chandler Parsons yeah Gemma Parsons is a pretty. Now he's a pretty outspoken guy with a lot of bravado is a white guy with a faux hawk Canadian dollars Dwight Howard anyone really have a lot of respect for for that haircut sides I don't know I guess he likes to bogey a little bit. And is Portman to be the place where you wanna go if that's the case you straighten up this'll teach you a lot better than that. Think tiny why you are the best for your son is my hero is to live video pot roast beef sandwich keep the change if there is inning. Hey OK so let's get to some of these other news coming up next lady here's some of its money its been thrown out there 345 Saint Paul radio Isaak in Suk on the fan. This is a fourth of July reconditioned over prime time where I sit in soup. American free grant them highlights on Jay Nady drove. My coveted top of the hour. OJ Mayo who literally gets kicked out of him yeah dumb to you have to beat kicked out of the NBA. Wind if you got like a bum leg and a bad back you could still get sixty million dollars. L.s joke and you go ahead and get kicked out. Also beer drinking. Sorry. Beer drinking bear news yeah this is fantastic not to be confused with their drinking beer news although I guess it works both ways doesn't it works either way Baird drinking beer news. Beer drinking bear news what you want it's like it's the same story you're gonna love it may go to motto we're here at the Saint Paul rodeo with vote. What we like to call the buckle burrows is the effect. It is a star spangled salute to the troops tonight it's patriot night out here so if you are. A member of the military. Or a veteran. And your family you all get discounts of two dollars here on patriot night on the Saint Paul rodeo the day the fireworks in the what have yeah in this fireworks after every night after every night pretty big fireworks and you get the rodeo in in the bucket in the Bronx in the whole thing there and don't forget about the tack rooms saloon yeah apparently that's the big deal if you are a single Fella or blasts apparently that's. Is the place to be it's the pre fun bar and they voted at one of the top twenty cowboy bars in the west apparently it's only open for like four days every year yet since the makeshift bar that they just throw up but I guess it's like if it's wildly popular turns into some happy hunting grounds to say the least. Okay well what else we have we have Mike Conley just signed with Memphis to San five years a 150 million out. Bradley deal back to the wizards five years 128 million. I'm NIC Batum five years 120 million back to the hornets on trade German back to Detroit five years a 130 million. Clarkson back to the lakers four years fifty million. Let's talk about the big guys for second. Timothy mas gov for years 64. Million with the lakers really. And joking no I don't know this is official yet but they were talking about a four year 72 million dollar deal for him with the knicks. I just can't get over Moscow of getting 64 million dollars in realized that Harrison Barnes when the and and they this may be waiting for the Kevin Durant things shake out. If Kevin Durant doesn't siding Golden State I guess he's taking some meetings. Later on today and I think maybe even in tomorrow before he makes that decision although most people say he's going back to Oklahoma City. If if if he. Stays OKC Harrison Barnes may end up going back to Golden State but it if Harrison Barnes gets Max money or something close to realize that. Harrison Barnes had about his bat a finals is you could have. Lost god did not play. In the in the finals basically didn't play all playoffs long and he played 38 minutes going into the finals where he was a non factor and together. The two guys after those performances are going to inks are in the neighborhood. Of probably 200 million dollars between those two guys leaks craziness. You know here's one OK so here's another deal. That it wanted to throughout their in this actually looks like a pretty palatable deal. Al Jefferson goes to Indiana now three years thirty million. This is what I don't understand how does to the mosque got its 64 million dollars and Algiers and I give these older. Is this all just as you move Jefferson is it better to ask golf well. Jefferson's on his weight down yet there's no doubt about that. But I think if not I would be so fascinated oh Beagle ever to be answered this but if you were to ask meals today. Hey you can have doubt Jeffords I don't think Al Jefferson was on his radar right for various reasons the outfit. You know whatever they need to knows yet whatever but if you told him. That you keep getting it ten million a year. Don't you think he makes a run at this certainly would think so so I think Indiana. Just swooped in and found that there wasn't really that big of a market for Al Jefferson obviously Al Jefferson I don't know how it is agent does that. He was ready to go the pacers are kind of on the upswing. All right let's do it Tammany here so what is all this mean. For Meyers Leonard I mean you've got mas gothic for years 64. Which would mean that Meyers Leonard deal's going to be. I'm assuming somewhere in that neighborhood yet may be the north of that no I get 72 led the that you look at Al Jefferson who only gets thirty million. Hey maybe this is the fact you're 31 years old I'm looking to see you know his his production until last year. You know he. He didn't play that many games and I I did not follow. Al Jefferson a bunch last year but Indy is coming off his his worst season and he's the age of thirty wants I'm guessing that as something to do with that but in this day and age. I I think that's a pretty good deal for Indiana. And you look at got away Indiana has done. To try to appease Paul George I think in yet has had a nice little offseason after that makes them contenders but I think Indiana has gotten better. This offseason I think they. You know I don't know how many of their moves necessarily you know kind of blew when he went away but kind of like what Portland did last year. They just they got more personal and and they got guys that suppose your point with the kids. The system they big Millen go around which is to be more up tempo. Couple of other deals as you probably occurred Chandler Parsons does go to Memphis he chooses his relationship with Mike calmly over the trailblazers and from what I'm hearing that wasn't even close it was just. Hey I like to hear what the blazers have to say but. Conley impart some talk about playing together forever. They're go to Memphis. Jimmy Lannan goes to Brooklyn three years 36 million bucks a deal that similar this to staff Curry's last deal. A lot of people panic Clapton on that Wednesday in the that's that's a good deal for both sides but real quick on the parts is demand for steel and a lot of people are kind of yeah the same boy blew it Memphis why would you depth Portland that much better than Memphis. Memphis was rat ravaged by injuries last year your member before. All that happened what what happened last year when when well I guess that would be two years ago when Memphis played Portland is a pretty good team when healthy. Memphis just fell on hard times last year. Yeah they are and and again it's mean it's just this whole free agency thing is a lot about. What about a couple things one guys wanna get paid. Q it's a lot about relationships. And I'm Tony out and I mean this seriously. I think Damien Bullard needs to you if he. Plans to be a blazer long term I think he and CJ McCollum need to start laying the ground work and not even kidding. About developing some some better relationships around the league for guys that they think could help them down the road and you you wonder if not that necessary this is the huge deal but not making all star team this year. You know not be on the alert that's right here is that right that doesn't. That's does that kind of I don't know nick away some of those I think your I think those are both opportunities to befriend guys. And then what comes to mind isn't what is leave it right here. He and DeMarcus Cousins do seem to be developing a little bit of a relationship now cousins is not a free agent this year now he has I think two years left on his deal. You know that's. That's when you go to the table you sit down with a guy if he he has a previous relationship with your start that matters that's why Memphis got. Chandler Parsons over Portland. It's so you know I think that's something to consider all right coming up next. How do you get kicked out of the NBA. Well a man has done it if it'll tell you how we get it next 357 on the fans.
