Actually feel it okay. Actually feeling okay what would happen you would stationary one now I'm on today didn't panic. A morning six and 9 AM all I know you don't wake up until that I hear you guys yeah I'm in the car going to start. I miss I miss our little dusty it's it's it's like her little child what a way to school and now we get to Syria never calls you'll becomes are we want something now. Let's get another pigs. Snap Chad with that guy's stature American Eagle logo appeared on today it's tradition beloved gadget cowboys business on the massive these are cowboy boots these around the -- come on get it get other what they look like cowboy boots to me that there's your name's dusty in look here's the I don't know what he's doing out here I don't know which do not here I feel like I had worked contractually obligated to have someone -- does appear at the brilliant it's become a bit that you just show up to the Saint Paul rodeo and they pay you to come out here. Yes he it is in my contract like in it is an all rodeo contracts that if any sort of media happens you have to have a guy named dusty. Or products yet damp wild in the names at some point. The cell like wild bill Hayes while Jack while Jackie out or any sort of nickname involving a lack of five fingers whether it's three finger Billy yeah. Two finger Jerry I don't know about sidewinder south and that's fine he's coming up later archetype we've heard about work because he's my favorite I like I like whiskey a bit like whiskey Jill who. It would be kind of cool names we do this and Richard whiskey is not the name and I have. Well it's nice to have you will you stick around and talk with us absolutely I would like to hear your thoughts on Evan Turner hasn't. It's harder to hit it like to hear your thoughts on commuters talked about rodeo all right. Well I don't wanna hear your thoughts on rodeo Cano there and get. But I'll do my manager rodeo we know I have the stand family feud prepared for tonight. I don't know that we're going to be able to get that guy to. No we're gonna have enough time I'd like to but we've got some of the things to do than we've got some interviews to do with some road rodeo folks so I don't forget too that I hope we do though. I hope we squeeze it in being discussed the people on the the interwebs here they're demanding that he may be the rodeo folks can play the family feud with us. Mean this guy here he knows what they viewed it interethnic guy wants the party that all right as well let's get so quickly here to be hot cited five. Hot topics upon opinion in this year's shirt greasy hair and it caught there. You just work. It's time for the hot climate fireproof clothing can scare the kids dogfight but five on primetime retires against you fly you know the refresh my Laura wood brewing company and crafted beer local food and should improve power. They haven't all at Portland's original family friendly blue glow Laura wood public housing breweries. It's. Number flying. Well it appears we now know the trailblazers. Top free agent targets planet was Chandler Parsons. It Dwight Howard in death he is sitting in the triplets who's gotten neither so it's not like it was it was that the plan was to get you in the parts of the try to use Chandler Parsons connection. To convince Dwight Howard. In any everybody's seen what it's not a bad argument you look at what Chandler Parsons is Dwight Howard did with that used to roster they've made her run for the Western Conference finals I think you can look at what. The blazers have been and it'll make a decent pitch for those guys hey you made it that far with the crew in Houston we've got a better team than that here in Portland but. Parsons never materialized and then Dwight Howard in the death in Atlanta well the people I've talked to said Parsons was never come at a Portland he was headed to Memphis he has not gone back to Dallas that he wanted to leverage and make sure he got Max money and that this had he given Max money because the blazers did offer Parsons of Max contract but. Parsons is friends with Mike Conley he's also close with JB if your staff who is now an assistant there. And it looked like Doug Parsons and calmly telling these two guys hit it. For a long time there are angling to pair up and play together so what we needed we needed it live and it seems difficult to start making better friend so Parsons goes to Memphis and then that Dwight Howard signs of three year 75. Million dollar deal with the Atlanta. Hawks. Nineteen innings in Toronto. Indeed. Top of the nineteenth. Cleveland's Carlos Santana hit a home run off of Darwin Barney. And if in case you're you don't know Darwin Barney local product Morgan state beavers. Not a pitcher. No he's an infielder but after nineteen I think it's. I think they're looking for anyone that at some point is thrown off a mound to give up their tossup so after nineteen the Indians do win today to one over Toronto and that gives them. Fourteen. And consecutive wins make up the first place. Think within you they are tough although I will say Brooke let go through this in there is a celebrity in our midst here at Saint Paul wrote yeah these barbecuing over there. He's former Mets pitcher Tom Gordon and all around animal and he came over here and said. Here's my World Series pick you watch. Washington. Nationals. Which is not a real sexy pick right now no he's at he says the giants he says Davis. Ambled in 1986 Mets to hit it like to hear that. Okay number three OJ Mayo has been kicked out of the NBA. Yeah that's not a good time considering that team deep balls got this got 64 million dollars like anyone with a bum leg can give at least when he and OJ Mayo. This this is not performance enhancing drugs this would be street drugs this would be. PCP cocaine something along those lines. That's all in the collective bargaining agreement so I'm he had not been previously suspended violate this policy but he he failed I don't know I guess he filled. More than one I don't we'll tell us it's so they kicked him out he is eligible for reinstatement in two years he'll be thirty years old when he when he does that play who he was in Milwaukee I don't know if he gets paid. I also don't know if he's actually a buck when he returned I'm assuming that that probably makes your contract balloon boy he was due twelve million dollars next year. Costing the state. Number two. All right we told you where Chandler Parsons and Dwight Howard ended up some other news of course Mike Conley could play with Parsons goes back to Memphis. He gets the richest deal in NBA history five years 153. Million until next year would ever win signs they're really speak to you right. Yet this is about to be broken like eight more times this is next couple years because that was with Kevin Durant like LeBron James they sent one year deals their backs contracts the year after that. Will be 200 plus million with at the end of those making forty million dollars a year. DeMar DeRozan five years 140 million back to Toronto on dream come in five years of 130 million back to Detroit. If you're wondering why these are all staggered in different amounts it has to do with. Years of service in the league which is Mike Conley got what had no wherever and however it depends how long you played you get a percentage. Of what the cap will be. Which is why like LeBron and and Kevin Durant signed a one year deals so that they can. Maximize their earnings potential when they signed the next few days the two back to the hornets five years 120 million. Yes Timothy Mann's got four years 64 million with the lakers looking for the worst deal of the day I give you activity in Moscow. It's 61 million dollars Joakim Noah got 72000004. Years from the nails Joakim Noah one point it was a real player Al Jefferson three years thirty million from Indiana that's an interesting move by the pacers. But jordin Clarkson goes back to the lakers four years fifteen million Jeremy who lives of Brooklyn three years 36 million. And Matthew dove the dove it goes to I think he goes in the box and hit like thirty was at 38 here everything or. Close the us here this is insanity. That's still the dove is getting paid more than like 80% of every NFL start mapping go over and it's all guarantee. I hear honesty just gonna have to get over the salary that that make the salaries of the players that this new collective work agreement otherwise it's just get a major headaches. At number one neo blazers doom. Get one guy today they land death former Boston Celtics guard Evan Turner for years. Seventy million dollars. He was set the number two overall pick. Of the sixers in 2011 he played a couple of years in Indiana he was signed by the Celtics two years ago he came off their bench. Our reports are that he is expected to start at the three for the trail blazers he is 27 the years old averaged ten points five boards in about five assists. Coming off the bench he's a guy who can do a little bit of everything he's a pretty darn good defender in he can guard. One. Two or three. So an interesting little fit will come back and talk a little bit more about. What he means and why the blazers got him certainly not PS data blazers were hoping for but it did get Evan Turner. Couple other notes they are apparently trying to get a meeting with Austin rivers. And they have made an aggressive offer to Powell Gasol. The latest on that we'll just have to keep you posted. All right the hot 55 is brought to you by laurel was that. Brewing company now you can enjoy laurel woods award winning gold and ale and can't just in time for summer available in six packs were better beer is sold. 514. On the fan. Six figure out for those little wood guys hey if you're looking for. This is a fourth of July week additional trying to where guys are considered. American brands by the way on 1080 program. Okay we're back here at Saint Paul rodeo it's Isaac gives him. And it's buckle broad dusty. Yeah it dusty dot sack in the house. And mr. cents a sounds like a derogatory term local Borough and missing most not the system is described in the cowboy Brothers yeah. That's actually really good term note I mean I feel like that yeah I think tablet does have a very broad test to keep feels to have. Although I'm waiting to see the cowboy that has the the nerve to go sleeveless flannel. Well I don't know he has that he it'll happen I think the person guns out the person with the most nerve here appears to be me. Re wearing geek culture is yeah if that's you well. Both of Lester I think not necessarily opera weekly radio address I'm fascinated by seem like dusty looks. Appropriate for rodeo and most people here do they look like they just read it. I'm fascinated by. This idea that you have to dress a certain way he does rodeo. Late like when you're wearing what you have just khaki shorts and a white T shirt and we're you don't seem keen. Did you did the thought cross your mind him going to rodeo I'd better where eight B or C yes it did. And that hearing is the trump card I was getting ready to leave and I looked at the weather reports the up and I saw that they could touch eighty degrees right. And so I sort of covered with you through and I haven't put away all my stuff yet I thought a lot of my clothes like in boxes. And it's mood in the house like two months ago dad at that your tagged out again that might winter clothes away like you go and pack in Minneapolis or something every September. Now seven months that the boxes so I'd thought about it and that they looked through I was like why it will be fine click appropriate rodeo where right now. And the neighborhood I'll be damned if fumble to Wear jeans. It warms cowboys sure out to the rodeo when it's eighty degrees because that's just get a lead this swampy stuff. That I can't partake in insight to sit the hell with that excite you rob was going to be dressed like that so I figure as long as I was. Not ends. Ill prepared is drop. That I would be thoughtful but when it still prepared your Oprah I'm not doing anything in the rodeo this is how I dress this is what I'm fascinated by is. Our. But they're not like dressing up in it invade their they call it beating up you know he dude out like he could use its bottom from a mile away right. Like me. But what. Why I Wear it like the boots and jeans look around like it's all dirt. Yeah and dusted right and horse manure and when you go home if you walk around like I'm going to date that the rodeo tonight. So when you walk around like all go home if you Wear shorts like simple go home in his cavs on down we'll be just. Around the an actor I'd look down my ethnic Tutsis our little. They're going to round down right now when you come to a city of lift 345 like Saint Paul. This isn't like this is what they Wear every day it's still it's not if you're just around more people. That dress and boots in G. Is now for a little cute guys like you that's fine I understand that but when I see a big cost like myself should I go out to me that the comforts. There's just no way that I can be comfortable and with my body temperature. Wherein a flannel shirt in June and when it's eight degrees right now dusty is the rodeo twinkies as he is the rodeo tweaking of the fans. In fact I kinda feel like it's been a dusty bottoms now. It will be dosed either rodeo tweak a pet. Aren't quite get stuck with twinkle because you're beautiful you're look at you can look at you you're you're English jays you're just. Skin glows. I mean the rest of us have been beaten down by life were gravely drunk. Where haggard for that to add odds I dislike to be drunk right now. Me too okay it's my 23 on the stand the blazers didn't get Evan Turner. Look deficit and I have talked for two hours about of about this I don't mind this move at all. On our poll question we have a very obvious question do you like the move in most people are saying man. I got a man when it reached out to few NBA people that I know and respect that they didn't like it that much. But there are a lot of reasons to this to be lonely at the very least to see why annual state did it. Do you like the blaze is acquiring Evan Turner's young dusty I hope. That he has grown because that was the biggest knock on him in Indiana and in Philadelphia thing he kind of hide himself more then his talent actually cool and you BA player ya right you read the clothes I mean. He compared himself to Jesus right there in one of immediate yeah pulled out at what he's done it at a time is cheap right. I I I don't know. That's the thing nobody messes with that Jesus right. And it if it is I mean more parts and if he's just like this that locker room got the thing that I am intrigued by is. NW yesterday that he put out where you know deep in the woods at. Every guy that I talk to I'm innocent that there is an expectation of their talk about red flag guys. Like a son Whiteside and Dwight Howard obviously Evan Turner comes in with red flags as well. I'm just because of the fact he's number two pick that a lot of people don't feel that you lived up to those expectations in the past year now you're paying your for a seventy million dollars. Seventeen and a half million dollars a year is evidence yet some like that and then you look at the fact that. Next year the caps going up even more. So it'll be. I mean it's a reasonable contract forgot that he it will either be. A sixth man of the year candidate or a solid not great he was no order so do you think this attitude thing. Has held him back or that's just the way he is in people's Steele is because I to me it sounds like. And I have the quote here retune second it's great but it sounds like to me this is sort of like Evan Turner does not have the reputation as a now content in. He really doesn't mean you haven't heard that about him in Indiana in Boston he just hasn't lived up to as you guys are talking about being in the. We do any of the colorful personality which I think it timed right can rub people the wrong way so is this finding new ways you scored twenty and you grabbed twelve rebounds. It's the crash Davis theory you have focused on your shower shoes. When you went what do you make sure you can let the fungus grow back on and the pretzel to keep colorful until that it makes to Islam. That's the Evan Turner raining if Evan Turner was an all star people would take the quotes and they'd think that he's this folksy kind of hero. But now people 38 your little skeptical when you read some of his quotes but he's a pretty nice player. Us you just. I I think that he feels more than need then what Chandler Parsons would have liked Jim Parsons as far away better player more established player blessed. But heat bills. It be a need of perimeter defense. And a guy that you can actually guard more positions just the small forward right like Jim Parsons. Was the guy that he's a 610 small forward Beckett only guard a small forward right thank you sometimes you guard T get bullied around by four. And I think that that is more what Portland needs on the perimeter because the big question would have banned. Who guards the best player on the opposing team if he can hear they have a huge now you have that the trailblazers have two great guards they are gonna hitch their wagon to these guards but. With those guards and you saw this play itself out the playoffs they are dead defensively with those guards they have got to find a way over the next couple of years. To somehow. Fix that problem or a mask that problem as best they can and Evan Turner. Definitely does that now so he's not he's not the end all the be all defensively either at the one or the two but when you combine him with CJ in game. In seeing how Terry Stotts kind of intertwined the minutes it will be really interesting I think he really helps them in that regard and Jim Parsons I don't know if that you tell me what you think of the plan a but I didn't think the planning was a great Chandler Parsons and Dwight Howard Chandler Parsons has been hurt each of the last two years and is really risky. To give him the Max contract is is like Dallas letting go. And Dwight Howard stepped I'd just like the biggest malcontent who leaked I just would have been itching to see how they would admit the contracts work. Might get by that immediately if you're giving. 24 million and what you can how would you. Recently. Get Dwight Howard become your plan it would work. That's the only really notice that it they would put it we are a lot of David Emerson writes all the and restrict its gap and it probably wouldn't of gotten police are closer Allen Crabbe back you know that's I. To me and this is Ed and I dote on notice by the way how awesome is it going to be. When the GM broad does hold a press conference because people are gonna go out here and you get a jab back there will be fisticuffs. Purple story when he has the press comes because people are gonna try to bash him and -- gonna do. That you don't know you don't know what I do read this is that though a larger piece but it had this is is this purely speculation. You know when you look at Houston when they had James Harden and Chandler Parsons and Dwight Howard is their core. They made a run in the Western Conference finals and they gave Golden State at a decent series and you know obviously we know gold they went on when the title. Is that cross that that you had in Houston. Much different than the roster you could put together in Portland with that the court four then dean CJ dame Chandler Parsons and the white power. And it may be and maybe there's some thinking there you also have to remember too that maybe Paul Allen had something to do this as well. Where Paul got tired of being patient saw the 44 wins and wanted a big splash to try to make a Roddick to try to get into one of those top three spots in the west and as. As a nation as he should though he's the owner he's he's threatened attacks you know if he would've gone over the luxury tax say that would in the it's in part in the in the salary thing if if planet works. He's he's probably pain in that luxury tax a bunch in that would be old school column when the blazers were contending for Western Conference. The finals CL here's here's the other thing with the Evan Turner I think that the bigger part that I people will see eventually. Al Britney got run down in the playoffs because he was nasty so much defensively right and in. You know shoulder that load. Now whether it's hand more Evan Turner coming off the bench. The exit two really good defenders just yet if what if McCollum insert your delivery gets hurt right it and it this is a really nice addition to your backcourt and Henderson it's gone I mean yeah he'll hit well I think he was gone anyway but I do think that the another thing it needs to be said about Evan Turner's this is probably ahead. Against. Losing Maurice heartless I think that the blazers it it seems to me the blazers. If they have their druthers would like them both back but. That's not realistic. And so I think they value crap over heartless and and turner softens the blow of losing heartless I bet you Maurice heartless is not that now. Now this team moves that the pistons made right today they they resent drama there and then they got somebody initially signed issues Smith. He's settled up. You've played you've got those two guys I'm wondering how their cap situation is because they seem to be the biggest players after Marreese heartless it if they got its net. In other German what how much cap room do they have at this point. Because that could be a big one if 1 of the morning big players is gone of McMurray start with sweepstakes I text your thoughts what you think Evan Turner to the blazers places. On their main targets. The son wants a dense only thieving got a meeting with a somewhat so I've read some a year tax to continue talking about it when we return here from the Saint Paul rodeo. You've got eyes could see of dusty here with us here on 1080 defenders appliances. Sports center. This is a fourth of July we traditional prime time where I sit consumed. On ten maybe go through. Okay Saint Paul rodeo it's where the action news. For hanging out talking about Evan Turner. So. Civil Evan Turner thing and it clicked I think this is half. Underwhelming for Evan Turner. And I think it's it's half people just disappointed that they're there's a seemingly another the blazers did but they only layers do it the always do is another rejection. But again that's that's would you if you thought this was gonna be any different. And you thought this is gonna be the year that Charlie Brown kick the football that's. The definition of insanity is. Is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. So did did anyone really think that Chandler Parsons or song white sided right are coming here. I suppose you could be opened the idea but to be disappointed and angry that there was a plan B. I I don't understand that. Odyssey for how many teams in the NBA does plane came in free agency workout wherever you probably wonder too because there's one or two marquee names that everybody's going after it just so happen. That and Kevin grant is not gay Kevin Durant is just it's a strategy he's here he's another planet. Who were this year the blazers are going after that she you guys who were marquee that a lot of teams were in the running now. And that is for planning for five or sixteen Reynolds wolf and some Whiteside in Dwight Howard right. Well there's five or six teams that are gonna miss out only twenty or it would only tooth and arson as a bright bright but it wasn't he a big part of the Dwight Howard pitch though as well. Seems like you're there was no Dwight Howard hit like this idea that they were close to Dwight Howard is ridiculous. They just had a pie in the sky idea that hey if we can get Parsons may be he can talk Dwight Howard in the coming days. Doesn't happen and so I don't know I I don't mind yet entered they idol I don't think the blazers had to hit a home run in people expecting a home run. You know I guess if you're always expecting a home run you always gonna be disappointed I think they got a base hit today we'll see how many other hits they can string together and. And the vast majority of time when you talk about create see it's exactly that it's based its in its doubles. Outside of the projects. Which is a unique circumstance. When he went to Miami he went to Cleveland. What was the last. General how many home runs quote unquote have there been totally NBA if you look at look at all the good teams and all their best players draft 95% of them were drafted by an -- portrait portrait or he gets Gradison trades involve a lie do I have the Jesus quote from Evan Turner nobody was talking about how he's nobody misses with that Jesus he's got a little bit the reputation of being immature that debt that is not from Evan Turner that's from the big about ski. He said OK so this is coming back to Philly after he left Philly he goes in DNA comes back to Philly and he says quote before the game. I signed my 100000 autographs and kissing babies and what not all that stuff and getting my hand kissed by people I got a little girls coming up to meet scene team. Once the game started it was like what the hell is going on us like this is weird if they take all the good people out. I don't worry about it anymore I don't wanna sound super weird but Jesus was hated to. At the end of the day I just worry about the stuff that's important if it makes you happy to boo me go ahead I'm still happy. I put all that stuff behind me will to be fair Jesus was made it. I think Jesus is the and so. So somewhat accurate quote so that's seven. I happen but he's 27 now. Let's get right to get a little older than you'll more perspective. You've got. He was fifth in the running for sixth man of the year you don't one of the five best bench players. In the NBA that's going to be your starting small forward. Probably put seems a little bit I don't know if he's gonna play 35 minutes a night they can play three positions they can defend a little bit they can handle the points. I just don't know why people are angry I really think the only reason people are angry is because they had. Higher expectations and when you stop and think about it those expectations were probably very unrealistic and there's no guarantee that any of those expectations had they come true. What have resulted in anything spectacular. You know who should be angry. If they blazer fans are upset how would you feel here at Dallas Mavericks fan right now they never get anybody. Any anybody like they're at the blazers in blazer fans in they're going all overpaid for Evan Turner. Last year they overpaid for Wesley Matthews who's coming off an Achilles. And had the second worst year of his career. Like this past year they get guys and still don't get them now right guys deal under George George didn't even get ready to get greatest thing ever in free agency that they're best signing over the last couple years is Chandler Parsons who had knee surgeries each of the year he's been there. I mean that it like. It could be worse you could end Dallas. Well okay next order business to how this all thing that sounds like the blazers have made an aggressive played him I don't think anyone at this table understands that now I I. I do not think he's look we let's not be whoop whoop how is he really gets 36 your soul is just weird it doesn't seem to fit with what. He returns 36 at like eight days which. Just seems seems odd to me that. And Agassi Kiefer does he provides and scored points still averages fifteen point game but. He's not anywhere near the defender and rebounder that he once was. He certainly doesn't fit anything in did it that career arc that your. That your your talking about it seemed like a stop gap maybe he's there to active mentor. I'm Myers lazy like a stable home for Myers went to its. Some scoring in the block in the paint tonight that you get a semblance of going in the paint and flexible and strength. That's right. But I don't let that may be some some foreign cigarettes and flopping pulse the more calls on the other allied it's an idea where exasperated looks well. I would look how to solve this was seven years ago when he was the best big man in the NBA. Again if you're upset about that what are knicks fans saying it because they're not as even. 72012. Alternates and amp brackets. The blaze at double tax fans are excellent but by Theo five blazer fans are all upset because they have low self esteem about themselves and this is a reminder. Another one says Pao Gasol would be better than getting Dwight Howard I would actually cute. The night I disagree with that out I I'm not in love with Dwight Howard but I'm not nearly as. Anti Dwight Howard's I think a lot of people are again. With Dwight Howard and Chandler Parsons the Houston Rockets went to the Western Conference files. Having turner at small forward and Aminu a powerful or puts to good defenders on the court at once plus turner shot as more respectable than Aminu and heartless loads of inside it he's got a decent size here it's not got a decent midrange game and got outside he's just a horrific out they choose but he's right about having it easy I I dislike the idea the other thing that I did like about Parsons is is lack of defense Parsons is an excellent player but the blazers have office. They need to do improve defensively night in I'm with him on having. Turner and Aminu or heartless on the floor at the same time but that goes much better defenseless of the how this all thing. And maybe is that realistic and maybe there is another plan that like it beyond boat or a census is the only. Hurry vertical Aldridge doesn't that make more sense than a 36 year old Powell that's all it if that's really what you're looking for is a real protector. I don't know man I I think BMO. Mid eighties the scariest guy in any match for me like isn't isn't he. Is terrifying to see a guy who. Has a a stellar. Series and a half in the playoffs where the playoffs are. Dictated solely on matchups and he has it good series and have everything. I don't you like 69 he is not. Yeah not a big body in the middle necessarily like. And that that would terrify me like I can reasonably be so worried there that maybe if festivals it just looks at him and doesn't. You know if just because everyone likes likes that name and it's kind of the sixty Gary that doesn't mean that the GM Breaux thinks that that he's a good fit for. And one more Texas how many bridesmaids dresses they're shoved in the blazers closet how long until they get to diamond ring level player themselves. How many Trenton Hassell jerseys are there. Don't hold your breath it has been twenty years twenty years since Brian grant which I think you could say it was probably the biggest free agent. And a competitive standpoint we're other teams wanted him in the they got ranked Andre Miller. Gonna go twenty years since Brian. It was on Jim Miller freeagent Petraeus. Via continental agreement that was the battle to get picked that one game yeah. Pretty good little players that it didn't Evan Turner make when he. Three pointers this year without a sign that that number I didn't see that let I think he shot 25%. Win one year he shot 50% from behind me a hard time I think Matt Moore of CBS sports aside that he he said that. Evan Turner made some like 23 of which is staggering in in this era of the NBA that it perimeter play by shooting the ball is over. I don't I think that that is true the blazers have sheer glory is a repeat it the blazers have shooters Evan Turner can score. Yes he can daddy's the slasher he's got a decent midrange game aren't. What all the blazers do next we'll have to wait and see it's at 546. Wolf follow up on some text here when we get back. Dusty here is here it is Jason you design it is Isaak it is your sports pros buckle bros Wii or fist bumping. We're at the rodeo. Wu. Yeah this is the fact. This is a fourth of July week additional prime time with the guys again soon. I've Americans. Grand Slam I'm going on 1080 days. They were out here to Saint Paul rodeo if you look at yourself to do this weekend there is action tonight tomorrow night. Sunday night and Monday night ticket prices. Ranged from eighteen to thirty dollars you get more info at Saint Paul rodeo dot com we have a few of the participants coming over and interviewing in the club bar which we do every year it's always fun to talk to these guys. Dusty tickle bottoms is here with us properly for the term he is doesn't the rodeo doing. I don't agree with this is an okay so ladies they'll tell you what these girls down here in LA things that are ready air like that sure that it does the ads go it he's pretty cute isn't he do you look to America. He's taken note by the and my wife. Honey but who's counting here and I she'll be on the way apparently like to do a whole thing there are so let's not talk about that right now let's keep that between the three of us sites. Don't know how I feel about that they clearly yes. I shall let it makes it. Why now well they're good they're cryptic I think. Skip that Berkeley second set let's put it nice Chris now it's five dollar bill lived there you know maybe in their football or something. It's that we have a quick blazer notes in your kid that it but according to David Aldridge the blazers are back in on me he needs. There with that one guy yet but the what. But one guy who centered the guy with I don't know its first name is Ian. Ian didn't he union I don't know. Yeah but he now Laura or I am if you will so they may be back in on him meaning that Pao Gasol said that I happen to know. But so we the one thing we haven't talked a lot about today's that Hassan Whiteside. Because that was like the first domino that felt that it was he was gone back to Miami hill you woke up this morning. Then it was like he's gone and you wonder if the blazers even of met with him it doesn't sound like they did nowadays it doesn't sound like that was one of those say we have a nice meeting and that's it thinks are kept so it you know it's don't snapped yeah. I thought he did that Portland Tribune there put the other players Tribune yes yeah he needed a C go straight at Cary pierce and put attribute it. And live stocks. Now it was he first announced on snap Chad. And then of released his article and reasoning wildly from him yet he didn't he give me a place to be very so that played on eighteen since college are not ready for their European night so that it gets. Four years 98 million bucks he didn't even make a million dollars last year. If you look at the two best contract is it was like 800000 right yet the two best contracts in illegal last year the sun light side that steps Currie. And we're looking at the that he meet for Indiana last year he is he as ranked by a hoops hype 675. As. Vis the ninth best free agent center. He averaged nine point seven rebounds snow remember watching him these are what who are the top nine it's fair to update the top aides will I drove into one. K he's out Drummond won high some might say too now right Howard Al Johnson Allah count BL boat comes in at six cent justices do the at seven okay. In the north we got don't Zaza there comes in on a peculiar thing about him Julia and then you get to he. Okay well there are some guys out there. I mean there are actually there are several senators out there and there aren't that many teams looking for senators and currency still be on the way out there if justices view is that there's also still out there it's please vote them more buckets states is still out there anyway you look out there me ask you write it hurts. No not just give. Al Jefferson. Three years father analyst and he me ten years to and a new year is now while that is incredible and now. I was asking him earlier I wonder if he told Neil say that you can get out Jefferson for ten million dollars a year. If before today he would have laughed at you but if after today he was like oh my god why did I call Al Jefferson. Probably you know he is coming off kind of it's it was his worst season he's 31 battled some injuries you wonder if this. If there is that this may be one of those were out of this out the name but in the insight circles maybe people just think that Al Jefferson gone. And that the that the career tank is is is running on fumes that you don't want to commit to three years to. Let me ask you this about the since I got to believe that is it mosque golf got 64 million dollars if the blazers get. Beyond low. Is he elite or Mahinmi yeah don't you feel the same. About all three I kind of feel any of the three as there are huge difference between them right now it's an end and that I think here surely they can get one of those guys. Would think it that your assuming that like if you're going to have a list that it's now turned to be unique what you sensed that that that's got to be Neil safe saying this is our. This is the next guy to sound like he's going down the list beastie insisted that you know know now these keep moving down to a draft board. It but at least he's moving quickly it. You write and at least to get the film because how many times though it in blazers if free agency the past we've seen in just dragged their feet and missed out on guys right at least Lago. They are at least one step ahead. Of perceive what everybody else is doing. Well dusty to go bottoms let's get to do Phnom Shelley and listen club 1080 is coming up next on 1080%.
