okay, would you? Welcome to Quick takes the show with me.
Luke Backman As I give you my view on the biggest stories in sports streaming live from Arlington, Texas, I'll be covering baseball, basketball, football and all the most important breaking news from this week's action.
I'll give you the facts straight up and then tell you what's right or what's wrong.
Without further ado, let's dive into today's topics.
Today we're gonna be talking about three topics.
We'll be talking about the extraordinary highlight Highlight really catches plays storylines from Week 10 of the NFL.
As there's a lot, there is a few games, but a lot of story lines that will definitely cover and talk about.
Then we're going to talk about the N betrayed rumors as the Pelicans get got a lot in return for Drew Holiday as Milwaukee finally finally hopes to keep you honest.
And Milwaukee, excuse me in Milwaukee, along with, of course, we're gonna be talking about the James Harden rumors as he looks to pair up with his former teammate Kevin Durant from O. K. C.
But we're going to see if Kyrie Irving is really having that or not.
Along with the N B.
A draft is tomorrow, and we'll see how we'll see.
What direction will Minnesota goes into.
We'll see if the draft Anthony Edwards or they'll go the Lemelle a ball direction.
Either way, we'll see.
Or a third option as they might trade down.
That's quick takes for you and the three topics we'll get into.
And let's start up right now.
So in Week 10 of the NFL, we had games on Li Fi.
I believe it was only five games on the schedule.
It excuse me, it was only five.
Games are only a couple of games, as a lot of teams had bye weeks.
A lot of teams had bye weeks and look, we'll just hop into a couple.
There are a couple storylines that we need to discuss is especially with Drew Brees and the Saints, but we'll get to him as the string goes on.
First, let's just get through some scores.
All of a sudden, I know the Indiana excuse me.
Indianapolis Colts want to tell you I'm not to tell you one there really be down on the Tennessee Titans.
Colts won that 1 34 17 as they are now tied for the They're now tied for first in the A F C self.
And if you were on my excuse me if you were on the Empire Sports Talk Stream, I believe.
Thursday, one of my someone asked me who do it.
Excuse me, who did it, I think was gonna win that game.
And I said, The Titans, I thought the time was gonna win it.
I'm not a huge Philip Rivers fan, but Philip Rivers played.
I mean well enough.
They scored offensively.
They scored 34 points defensively.
Not only did they hold times and only 17, they told Ryan Tannehill the 147 yards passing, which is season low, obviously held Derrick Henry and check.
That's mainly the offense on the team and culture ableto Ty Ty Get the lead to tie the division.
Excuse me? Be first in the vision.
F C South isn't as strong as obviously.
We see both the Texans and the Jaguars Jaguars are making a push for the number one pick in the draft against my Jets s.
So it's really the Colts and Titans right now.
And the way the Colts are rolling at the Colts might actually come out of the coming of the division.
Moving on Brown's one against NFC salting the Texans Tennis.
If you had Nick job on your fantasy team, I know you're angry about.
As he stepped out, I believe at the three yard line.
You gotta? Sure, sure, Touchdown ran that balance. It was a real sloppy.
Conditions weren't great.
Um, Browns were able to eke out a win in Cleveland.
Right Next we have another game talking about the NFC East teams here.
Uh, Washington loses to the Lions.
Lions led at halftime 24 3.
obviously, Washington came back to tie a 27 27 Matt Prater at the Bill Detroit out with a 59 yard as time expired.
And what can you say about the NFC East that I haven't already said? Not a good division as well.
Talk about the next game that happen, but lions again.
They are maybe as bad as the Atlanta Falcons is blowing leads.
They didn't blow this one.
I mean, they blew it up to the point, but they didn't lose the game, right? Uh, Washington barely almost came back.
Line squeaked out a win in that one.
Uh, going to the next NFC East game.
Giants upset the Eagles in New Jersey at the Meadowlands.
Um, Eagles now on Lee, up a half game in the division, which is ridiculous, is as crazy it is to say they are by far the best team in Division three.
On paper, they are.
If you watch them, they're not very good.
Giants won that game by 10.
Uh, Daniel Daniel Jones.
Uh, he's found a way to run the ball.
He had 34 yard touchdown run in the first quarter running the ball.
He's been ableto we all know the infamous name or the play in which he tripped.
We also that he was in the open field and tripped earlier this season.
I believe that was a Thursday night game that was actually against the Eagles.
Yeah, that was against the Eagles in Philadelphia, and he tripped up, but he obviously used his like, uh, get that far downfield.
But Jones has become sort of a dual threat.
I would not put them in categories, a dual threat, but he has used his legs and running the ball way more than what I anticipated, especially coming out the draft and going in this year.
Well, im another game.
Other games around the league Packers.
They didn't need a late stand against the What is it the second worst team record wise, The Jacksonville Jaguars Packers win that 1 24 20.
They did win it in Green Bay.
Um, Gard Gardner.
Minshew wasn't even.
Wasn't even available.
He was injured for this game, so the Packers had to be had to come back and, you know, make a final stand against a rookie.
Lutton didn't play awfully at 169 yards, along with a touchdown and interception, but not enough to beat the screen bed.
Team Buccaneers bounced back against rival division rival Carolina Panthers, 46 23.
When for the Buccaneers, especially after getting absolutely demolished by New Orleans the week before, Brady played well.
One potential issue is Antonio Brown Mawr legal, but MAWR legal issues and battles have arised is.
Apparently he is getting accused of throwing a chair of a surveillance camera, and the only breathe the dude who owns the surveillance camera is I was scared to press charges because of retaliation from Antonio Brown.
So we'll have to see how the bucks handle that.
I imagine when they signed and brought Antonio on, they knew he was gonna have problems.
They're not problems, but legal issues following him around some baggage.
Rangers beat the Broncos 37 12.
Lock struggles, uh, 257 yards and ice 101.
One touchdown compared to four interceptions.
Drew Lock is really made it difficult for Denver.
Look at him, is there, You know, quarterback for the future Raiders after having a 33 ****ing, you know, 500 record.
Three straight wins in a row, excusing as the Raiders were looking to make a playoff push and potential wildcard seating as more than likely the Kansas City Chiefs do have the division wrapped up no matter what.
Okay, moving on.
About all the rookie cubes, right? Dolphins win against the Chargers, 29 21.
Uh, two of has been playing. Great. That's three.
And oh, he beats Herbert.
Justin Herbert, who's met Herbert, made a push for offensive rookie of the year.
I still think is Joe Burrows.
But Herbert has made a push to 169 yards with two touchdowns.
Coming off an impressive game against Kyler.
He does it against another Rooker excuse your broker, rookie and just a Herbert, probably the game of the week.
Play the play of the weekend like Cardinals eke out a win 32 30 against the Buffalo Bills.
Um, there's not much to say other than the play of the year happened for the Hail Mary.
Is DeAndre Hopkins culpable over three defenders? I will have my ****ysis on that player's joint employer, who has played great.
He's been a great safety all year.
He knocked trade.
Troy Davis White, right, right from making the play, White had the perfect position angle to bat the ball player.
One of the interception was not able to get it.
Couldn't even get a hand on the ball.
DeAndre Hopkins shows why he is a top three top to top three receivers in the league.
You know, Kyler Murray makes a great throw rolling to his left.
Kind of off balance, right? Absolutely.
Player of the year.
Um So there we go.
Oh, Let's see, it's time to start worrying about thes.
I'd say bird teams as both No, no.
Yeah, the Seahawks and the Ravens is beginning to scare me.
I'm in Russell Wilson fan along with a Seahawks, not Seahawks family judge fan.
But I like the Seahawks, UH, Seahawks lose to the Rams, 23 16, while Russell Wilson did not record a touchdown.
He had two interceptions, though with 248 yards passing the ball as it looks like they're out of them.
If not, they Wilson is gonna be out of the M V P picture, which is has me nervous.
And then the other bird team I have, that's scaring me is the Baltimore Ravens.
They lose 23 to 17 at New England to the Patriots, and I'm gonna look at this from New England Side more than Baltimore is because Baltimore I have faith in them there.
They're scaring me now for the skid.
Same with the Seattle Seattle.
Their skid recently, Um, but I have faith in Lamar and John Harbaugh.
All okay, but the Patriots have a chance.
I mean, with, especially with the Bills loss, the Patriots are slowly making their way back up the A F C East standings.
Uh, it will take a little.
It will take some time, and it will take more than you know this game, obviously, to catch him back up.
But there's a chance that, um, Patriots could make climb back into a potential wildcard spot.
Or, dare I say even a first place finish in the A F C East? I'm not going to say that, but the Bills have to watch out because the Patriots air right on their tail as they're making a comeback.
Well, mainly because they're improved running game.
Excuse me, Eso What? To see how that works out.
If that continues to work for the Patriots, is these low scoring affairs.
They're going New England's way quickly.
Rattle off the other games.
The Saints So 1 27 to 13 against the 40 Niners but lost Drew Brees with a cracked ribs, I believe, punctured long.
He's out for an extended period of time.
This is why they signed James Winston to take over.
Michael Thomas only had two catches for a grand total of 27 yards.
Winston's gonna have to find Thomas if he wants to make, you know, a push for the saints.
Uh, Steelers When, uh, excuse me.
Division game against the Bangles, 36.
Well, they finish undefeated remaining on their schedule.
Like the biggest challenges will be the Ravens, Colts and the Bills.
So we'll have to see how they make out in those three games.
Personally, I don't think the Steelers will complete the season undefeated.
Uh, and sadly, I don't even know if the Steelers are the best team in football at the moment.
But they're still playing like it.
Um, so they were able to win a division game.
Has been the Roethlisberger played well, No. Yes.
Excuse me yesterday.
Um, there will win that division game and remain undefeated.
Obviously, I just rattled off their biggest challenges left, and we'll see how they continue to improve.
Um, finally, the last game of the excuse me last game in Week 10.
It was Monday night's game against the Vikings and Bears Vikings when 1913 offensive touchdowns for the Bears.
He finally won a Monday night game.
Hey is now one in nine on Monday night games, but he has finally won on Monday night game.
So congrats to Kirk.
Ah, really sloppy game.
We're really slow paced, not very enjoyed.
Enjoyable to watch.
But Vikings win that game.
No, that really sums up.
There's a excuse me.
There is a lot of teams on bye weeks or not as many games.
I thought I heard a stat like only five games.
That obviously was not the case.
Um, maybe there's five teams were on a bi or something like that.
So not too many games around the league s Oh, we'll see.
But that really wraps it off for a week. 10.
Playoff picture is becoming more clear, but moving on from the NFL, we're gonna go straight into the N betrayed Zendaya.
Rumors that are going around right now.
Um, what, coming up with this quick text, I was not sure we were going to actually talk about the draft.
And then we're gonna talk about the Masters because we're not sure.
Actually, about the trade deadline had availability to trade, and, um, everything had not been, you know, setting schedule by the MBA, right? So Monday were like, Oh, yeah, they're gonna be trading, and then it was still like, Okay, schedule.
You know, scheduling wise that we were still like, Are they going to be making huge trays on this Monday? You know, big enough to talk for, you know, on a Tuesday afternoon, Uh, you know, afternoon, late night.
And we're gonna get straight into that as maybe the biggest trade so far.
Maybe is I'll get that I got you with James.
Yeah, we have a whole part for James Harden.
First, the biggest trade is the Sun's acquired Chris Paul and Able Nater.
But the Thunder acquire Kelly Oubre Jr.
Ricky Rubio, tie Jerome Jail in the Q and a 2020 22 1st round pick.
Okay, The thunder have absolutely been, I'd say, finessing every team in these trades.
The thunder now have.
What is it? 17 1st round picks over the next through.
I believe it's 2026.
The thunder absolutely set for years and years to come.
I mean, they can trade.
They can draft good players.
Uh, they have great development in O k. C.
They got off a you know, large Chris Paul contract while retaining four.
I'd say three young players in a veteran point guard on Ricky Rubio.
You know, I'm going sons Windows.
I mean, excuse me.
Okay, see, Wins this trade.
But on the flip side of that for the sons, I like to trade.
You get Chris Paul, you get Devin Booker because Booker's looking to leave Phoenix's well known you know this will keep him try and re change his mind.
I love what they were doing there in Phoenix before, you know, in the bubble.
I don't like this trade for because they trade so many young players.
But I like Monty Williams is a coach, and I think he'll be good with Chris Paul.
Chris Paul will help Devin Booker, but my ceiling for the sons is a early exit in the playoffs.
Um, I don't know how much this trade like made them a finals contender if that's what they're going for, or they're just going, you know, to make the playoffs.
But I say the thunder won this trade both good trade for both sides.
But the thunder for sure had to win this trade just because of the fact they get so much young talent and they haven't you know, just sitting on a stockpile of draft picks at the moment.
Also involved in another trade with the defending champion.
L A Lakers Lakers Air going to acquire Dennis Schroder.
Well, this will become official tomorrow night.
This is in principle.
Well, Thunder acquired Danny Green and the 28th pick in the 2020 draft.
This will be agreed on, my believe become official.
What is it? Yeah, I said Wednesday night.
That's after the Lakers make the draft selection for the Thunder.
So when after the draft, then it will become official on Dennis Schroder will officially be part of the Lakers.
As of yesterday, I saw that they were looking for a third team to including the trade because they wanna move Danny Green to maybe help Mawr contending team.
So we'll see if that happens.
But as of now, Danny Green in principle is going to the Thunder and the Lakers.
They're gonna acquired Dennis Schroder, who I'd like because watching a lot of Laker games.
Dennis Schroder, he what was it on catch and shoot threes with LeBron and the Lakers need his percentage was 41% on catching through catch and shoot threes, which is huge for the Lakers and especially with what Danny Green was bringing to the table at the end of the year, I believe could be an upgrade is also gives another point, guard and player to handle the ball, um, does it to bigger trades of the moment.
Obviously, we're getting in tow.
Maybe one of the biggest trades of recent years.
And that's what Derek said talked about with James Harden.
James Harden wants to go to Brooklyn.
It looks like he wants to go to Brooklyn.
Granted, I did see a report that Meek Mill is trying to persuade hard and to Goto 70 Sixers.
But it doesn't seem like the G m for Houston.
Houston's new GM is going to trade Harden, Daryl, Morey and the Sixers unless it you know they get Ben Simmons in return.
So I don't see that happening right now.
It looks like Brooklyn, maybe the destination for James Harden in.
I said this in my intro, introducing the topics.
Katie, it looks like wants to reunite with James Harden.
We all know what they didn't.
Okay, See? Well, What is that? Now, 28 years ago.
They, you know, made it to the finals.
Lost to Miami and the heat.
Uh, not Miami, The Heat, Miami and LeBron.
And I guess they would.
It looks like they want to run it back.
I'm great, you know, Hard.
And Katie, that's awesome.
But you're wanting to include Harden on in the same backcourt as Kyrie, Irving, um, two guys that need the ball in their hands.
And I don't like when people say, you know, players need the ball in their hands because players can learn.
You know, the play shooting guard could play off the ball, you know, come off screens, you no one's gonna have to sub.
So one is going to get the ball in their hands.
But in this case, they both absolutely need the ball in your hand you saw And Cleveland Kyrie was upset because the ball wasn't in his hands because LeBron was taken it up.
It was LeBron's team, right? Um, for James Harden, he had for the last couple of years seasons.
His usage rate in the MBA has been either first or second, right? You trade for Russell Westbrook.
You think? OK, his usage rate is gonna go.
A little is gonna go down by, I want to say a little, but a significant drop, maybe like the seven or eight, because Houston still needs him to touch the ball baked plays and everything.
His usage rate dropped a whopping third from 1st and 2nd over years where he was the primary option on offense.
His usually Drake dropped a third with a top 10 player on the team.
Eso It's obvious James Harden needs the ball wherever he goes.
Um, and I don't know if that's gonna work with Carrie. Irving.
Don't put Katie exclusively.
Katie is going to meet the ball.
Katie is the best out of the three. We'll see.
How is the kid? He comes back from his Achilles, but before that, if that's in any indication, he's the best out of the three. No question.
What was I saying? Totally.
Oh, I was talking about Katie foot in him.
I don't put Katie in that role of okay.
He needs the ball because Katie played with Warriors team with Steph Clay Draymond.
You know, granted, they were not as you know, needy.
I'd say the ball is, you know, Kyrie ing James Harden our but he knows how to play with other superstars.
You know how to coexist with these guys that need to get their points up.
You know, unanimous M v p.
And Steph Curry.
You know, top five Shooter and Clay Thompson.
So he knows how to adjust, and I think that would be good.
I think Katie would be able to make that adjustment because But Katie wants to play with both Kyrie and James Harden.
Kerry wants to play with Katie.
That's why they went to Brooklyn together.
James Harden wants to play with Katie.
We don't know if Harden wants to play with Kyrie.
You know there's reports coming out this thing.
Yeah, Kyrie isn't a fan of James Harden coming over.
This is, you know, Katie on his own texting and like, Hey, why do you work a trade here without even thinking off? Okay, Kyrie might not like this because I'm I'm Cairo's plus one to Brooklyn.
You know, you get invited to a party, you know, as the plus one, you don't get a plus one and you're doing this all with your first year together? Um, that's what's scary is it's not like they're fitting James Harden into an already readied system.
Kyrie played, you know, a handful of games last year.
Katie played non.
Katie and Kyrie have played all star games together. That's it.
They have not played a meaningful basketball game, you know, in the regular season, ever in their career.
So not only are they gonna have to figure it out, you're adding James Harden to figure it all out altogether.
I'd say you know better to figure out the start of the season than, you know, trade for him at the trade deadline.
But I really don't see how and people have heard this all throughout the league.
You know, you turn on any SportsCenter, anything they're saying this is not a good fit.
You're just saying, Oh, here's a great player.
Let's go trade form and you know that's gonna make us better.
Um, I don't believe so.
Uh, so we'll see what happens with James Harden, his counterpart, Russell Westbrook.
He wants out of Houston.
Houston is not going to get what they gave up to get Russell Westbrook.
They give from first rounders.
They gave up Chris Paul Looks like he's potentially headed to the Hornets.
Uh, makes sense.
He's the Jordan brand athlete.
Michael Jordan loves Russell Westbrook where he plays, um, trademark.
My Knicks aren't even sold on the next.
The next aren't sold on sold on Russell Westbrook.
So right now, Russell Westbrook, my bet will be traded.
But we're gonna have to see where, because the market isn't huge.
And my guess is is gonna end up in Charlotte and back to James Harden real quick.
James Harden isn't going to sit out of here because he's on contract for Houston for three more years.
So Houston, Houston can play this like, Oh, we don't have to trade you right now.
You still are under contract for three more years, right? Eso harden doesn't have any leverage with, like, trade me or else I'm leaving because they have three more years before they, you know, really trade them.
Um, lastly, this is really, um a huge trade that when I went down late last night, the bucks get drew holiday in a separate trade, they also get bogged on, uh, Bogdanovich, along with the 42nd pick 60th pick, and the Bucks finally get a point guard as they traded both George Hill and Eric Bledsoe to the Pelicans.
But they also traded a first round pick in this year's draft.
Excuse me 2024 rights.
Excuse me, Right to swap a 2025 unprotected first in the 2026 right to swap and a 2027 1st unprotected pelicans that absolutely reloaded, uh, for Drew.
They got back so much a return.
This was like an equivalent off getting a trading away.
Anthony Davis the way that they got paid a return with these draft picks and not even players, because I imagine they won't keep George Hill around for long, much for much.
Or they might trying to, you know, trade blood so right away.
But David Griffin has done a great job, you know, getting the most of his players.
This is Drew holidays.
A fantastic player talked about this last time. I love Drew Holiday.
I don't think he's worth four picks for on two players.
Three picks for you know.
So congrats to the pelicans.
They I don't think the Bucks needed to give all that away, especially.
And then in the King's deal, they gave away three more players.
Dante DiVincenzo, Ersin Ilyasova and D. J. Wilson.
As of now, they have, like seven people active on the roster.
They're going to need to fill out their bench.
So and they don't have their first round pick to do so this year because they traded.
It's a pelicans so or their second Oh, they have two second round is the 42nd.
They have two second round picks, the 42nd pick and 60th pick.
So I guess they're trying to do it there.
But best of luck to Islam as I like the trade because it sends a message to be honest.
Hey, we're going to do whatever we can to keep you here, but I just think it's really just a king's ransom and the Pelicans one the trade.
In my opinion, unless the Bucks win the championship, you know they get the final laughed.
I think the pelicans one that trade, Um, finally, the other trade.
I really confused me. It wasn't a huge one.
Uh, Trailblazers get Robert covered.
Covington from the Rockets is the rocker Rockets get back.
Trevor Razia, Aries.
Trevor Ariza, who, if you remember, was on their team with the battles against the Warriors in 2016 2017 2018, I believe, but the Rockets also got a 20 21st round pick in the 2021.
Protect your first round pick last year.
I did not think Robert Covington was worth two first rounders that really surprised.
Made that the Trailblazers gave it up that much.
Gave up that much for Robert Covington, but good for the Rockets because they lost a first round pick this year because of the Russell Westbrook trade last year.
So they are able to pick in this draft and recruit recoup something because they're definitely not getting what they gave up for. Russell Westbrook.
You know, last year and you know this year's trade market, especially with Westbrook and how it's looking, it's not gonna happen.
Uh, I'm talking about picks and drafts.
Perfect Segway and so the n B A draft.
And mistakenly, I thought it was Thursday.
Usually it feels I think it's Thursday.
You know, the draft of Thursday, but the draft is tomorrow night on the Timberwolves.
We have not really decided or have not, really, I'd say decided which direction they're going on.
You can see that they're leaning Anthony Edwards.
But there's reports.
They're also like a little mellow ball.
Um, they're having a hard time trying to find a trade partner.
That's why if my opinion is, if, if I was the Timberwolves out, trade down because you don't need started laid out over the last two weeks.
Why? I don't think Anthony Edwards is a great fit there in Minnesota just because he's going to need the ball in his hands.
But you traded for D'Angelo Russell last year? Um, it makes little sense to make UM, that's why I don't see them drafting the mill A ball, either.
Uh, so I'm trying trade down.
But it's not looking promising for Minnesota, as they really have not been able to find any trade partners for that number one pick.
Which is surprising, especially in this year's draft.
But teams are not seeing a stud player.
That's why they're not looking to trade assets for that number one pick.
They're not seeing a star, you know, true star studded player, Um, so that's why we're going to see teams, you know, drafter fit this year.
That's why we're going to see James Wiseman potentate most likely go to the Warriors and number two because he fits their needs.
Okay, Um according Toe Sports Illustrated, I saw their mock draft Lamont day of Lemelle a ball gown number four to Chicago while ESPN bleacher report have all gone number three to Charlotte.
Um, Chicago makes me a little more sense now because they did release Chris Don.
They didn't They're not bringing him back his point guard.
Also, I saw something that they potentially wanna make Coped away for the, you know, secure his long term future move over to shooting guard to guard eso.
Chicago could make a fit there.
And was Zach Lavine potentially leaving? There's reports that he's not exactly too happy in Chicago at this moment.
So Lamela ball could make a perfect fit there.
Charlotte, you have Terry Rozier and Avanti Graham.
I imagine you're trying trade Graham, if you've got a mellow but we'll see.
Um Oh, and also, if you're Charlotte, if you draft Lemelle or does that mean you're done with Russell Westbrook? Because let's say you're not drafted Lemelle.
Oh, and then trading for Russell Westbrook and having four guards on your team at the moment.
So that could be a reason why if Charlotte thinks they have a deal for Westbrook, you know, from with Houston Westbrook, you know, in place and principle Um, I think they'll go ahead and make the make the selection of Lamela ball if they don't have that, you know, playing in place.
Um, until I talked about Edwards and Ball have, you know, right now, they have even odds, uh, to being picked first.
Personally, I think it would be Edwards if the Timberwolves were to keep that number one. Pick.
That's another source is saying, You know, he could go to the Bulls.
Um, we will see one name that has really surprised me and drop and really been dropping his coal.
I saw him getting selected Number 21 1 of the latest mock drafts and coal Anthony.
I watched him play.
I loved watching him in high school.
Um, I think he's shorter.
He's on the six to side, I believe, Um, but I believe Clinton u 21 is a steal.
He works out with Chris Brickley, who I know.
Obviously you guys were like, Okay, just because he works out with someone doesn't mean much.
But he has been around pros.
His dad was Greg Anthony.
He works out with pro, has been around the game for all his life.
I just think he's up point guard for the MBA, and I think teams to pass up on coal that far in the draft could be a mistake and could be a draft pick to look back and back on and say, Wow, that How did that happen? Um, he does have to improve on his his should his shot a little bit as well as the just decision making.
Overall, I saw a game.
I'm a Syracuse fan.
See, you know, back there, um, he played UNC played Syracuse in the A C C tournament, and yet, I believe seven turnovers and really killed U.
N C s chance of winning that game against Ah, poor Syracuse team.
Not poor this struggling Syracuse team last year as they actually beat Syracuse in the regular season by 15.
Anthony's a player to watch out for, uh, Texas connection.
RJ Hampton Player to watch out for I believe he's going late.
Lottery toe, early twenties in that range, you know, 14 toe.
He has a lot, lot to develop, but he's, you know, just outside of me in Texas or leave like an hour and a half 45 to an hour, you know, away from a So he's a Texas connection to watch out for.
And those were the two names I would watch out for in the draft along with Isaiah Stewart.
He's a cute he's a really, uh, he was a five star big man.
Didn't have the greatest year at Washington.
Washington is a team.
Didn't have a great year, but I say a Stewart could fall in the draft and it seemed like a Celtics who need a big man presence.
I mean, Aaron Baynes isn't gonna get you too far in the league.
Um, Celtics late in the draft could taken Isaiah Stewart, who is an absolute steal it, you know, late twenties eso those three of coal Anthony Arja, Hampson and Isaiah Store are three.
I have my eyes on right as the draft is tomorrow.
They will see there's a lot going on with trades.
