Don't just about an hour after he joined the heat officially. I hear from him so we'll have that coming up you wanna get ball in the program I'm curious some assert the show we'll let you know what I think about the draft pick but I'm curious what.

On Twitter at Greg likens Jerry GL AK EN estimates and Amelie she's with the size Santee Sears load a full crew on a Friday night this is and Josh Josh does things right around here. He's got he's got the full crew so some good stuff there are so before we get started. Let's take you back to last night this is what happened it was close to 9 o'clock we are all anticipating. Movie he we're going to take when Adam silver. Stepped to the podium this is outside of the Barclays center. Yeah. Mary Joseph Adams over announcing the pick for the Miami Heat the 69243. Pounds senator from Kentucky. Has nearly a seven foot three inch wingspan averaged thirteen points eight rebounds wanted to have blocks. And a 101 dogs I heard Perkins Stockton about. By the dunks that this guy had conceded using explosive powerful players shot 60% from the floor to 65%. From the free throw line. Our court to very Jackson reading his work earlier today. What he describes it as of the by the by the time canard and Don lemon jewel Mitchell were off the board he decided to go big and there were some some support internally. For UCL a.'s TJ leave Miami love Zach Collins who went ten to Portland. But I add a bio was a guy that the heat thought gave them a better interior defender right off the bat. And impress the heat in a worked out that he had on June 8 which also featured some other players including Justin Jackson. And so its interest in the heat decided to go brig. Collins wasn't there leaf still available Harry Giles still available John Collins still available Jared Allen Justin patent. Couple other pixel available. But the heat decide to go this direction. And go with Kentucky's spam at a bar you. In speaking with Ron Rossi last night to join us on our broadcast and he said the band doesn't need the ball offensively to contribute he's a role player police expedient on offense. Blocked shots. I am told us he patterns his game after Kevin Garnett he said his jump shot is better than people give him credit for because he didn't take many lesser because Emily monks so would you rather shooting from the outside mark when number eleven overall or himself. It's a surprise that lets be honest let's not sugarcoat this. I don't think. Many people including myself entered last night thinking bam out of body it was going to be one of the top names -- gonna target. In the first round of the draft this was a surprise none of the prognostications. Of the quote unquote experts who put the mock drafts together. Said hey this is the guy that the heat are going to target air and quite frankly I have some questions about how he's going to fit on this team at least in the short term now long term we'll hear from Pat Riley Erik Spoelstra is the show goes on to. They're raving about it they love the pit and I know get some people. On the phone lines which would give to a momentarily but before I continue. With my question mark surrounding the band picked by the way can't beat the name and Mike Inglis that are read and he did have a field day whenever he does dunk because. This reminds me of the old fat man show where you're just gonna have the animated bam next Norman me in the caption. And for the younger people are audience you won't know what I'm talking about the maybe sell and Adam West passed away recently. They brought some of that back either way. Band mate it's it's made for broadcasters is a great name for the kid will also tell you exactly how he got the nickname boom for a continue. Let's do it at its. Use once trendy now in Miami. XY AM South Miami. Right you. The Marlins come. Their weekend series this season in Miami looking to bounce back from last night's eleven to one loss in the opener the fifth San Jose uranium to the mound. Who has won his past four decisions in Chicago will counter with John Lackey first pitch in a few minutes from now it's 710 from Marlins park. On the hardwood the Miami Heat held the structure press conference for the first round pick bam at a bio this afternoon with Pat Riley described in the Kentucky big man. As a quote on quote perfect fit. For the heat elsewhere in the MBA according to multiple reports bull Blake Griffin and Chris Paul have opted out there contracts with the clippers. Will become unrestricted free agents. And finally to hockey with a two day 2017. NHL draft kicks off tonight from the United Center in Chicago the Florida Panthers on the tenth overall pick in the first round. We'll keep you updated as the show goes off. What transpires there are from the windy city those are your headlines so. Here's my question about bam. And a bio because. Clearly impressed in the work outs clearly the character concerns are none with this kid he's a great kid there really like him Pat Riley. Raved to bottom talking about the fact that he shot really well made thirty of 53 pointers for big guy who's not known to have a jump shot that's got to be impressive. And the heat quite frankly have a proven track record right we hear the culture of were being thrown around but you don't do that lightly because the heat have proven that when they bring players in. They develop them with the best of them are Pat Riley didn't say today we have the best. Coaching staff and developmental staff in the entire National Basketball Association so. From that standpoint. We know that they have the ability to get the most out of whatever prospect they bring in and maximize his potential and talent. When they joined the franchise it's my only question is that it's. Is I wonder if they would have been better off drafting a player who could more definitively complement has some Whiteside and play alongside him because when you look at. Some Whiteside he looked today bam on a bio. You're looking at two players who bring similar skill sets to the table. If you go get a TJ relief even a John Collins out of UCLA and wait force respectively. You're talking about a pair players whoever reputation for being able to stretch the floor TJ leave all the way to the three point line when the most talented big men shooters in this year's draft. And John Collins probably to fifteen to seventeen feet comfortably. Proved in Wake Forest but he didn't shoot the three what he could shoot. Consistently from the mid ring each. Whiteside is we all know that maybe he's working on this when he hasn't proven to be consistent reliable midrange shooter he plays around the rim. So my only question mark is why drafted player. It does exact same thing. Now if you're just bringing him in to be the back of two. Whiteside and fill in for what we assume Willie Reid will be departing this offseason. Ninety edited the long term knowing that Whiteside is your guy. That would be my only question news you might give limited is sealing a little bit because I don't know how often you can play these two guys together. Now I think your Spoelstra disagrees of me will play is someone a little bit later on. But I guess my question would be why not acquire a player who complements Whiteside. Perfectly right you get a guy who can shoot two good stretch the floor CO Whiteside posting up. And all the around the lane and roaming the lane and then all of a sudden you've got some shooters around him that can open things up on the outside would all that being said. I give the heat atomic credit and much like they did the dolphins generate a lot of people wouldn't think Charles Harris would be either selection. Most people and think could bail would be the selection for the heat. So they had. Conviction. That's a huge thing with me when it comes suit the drafts. Is if you have conviction if this is a guy and Riley in Spoelstra Bolton spoken publicly. In a glowing manner in referring to bam out of bio so with that said. I credit them they've got a conviction they do really good about it but more like most of these picks in the first round it's gonna take them awhile to develop. Bam is no exception he's nineteen years old so I'm okay with that you've got to develop new and got the best group behind the scenes to do it. I just wonder if you are sure now one will actually be able to. Evaluate this inaccurate standpoint. Would we look back and say man I wish they had a guy. Read more wrist still said in terms of what he brings to the offensive side of the ball being able to shoot. I hope I'm wrong. I hope I'm wrong but I'm curious to hear what. The audience necessary and those who were he fans out there wanna join the conversation tennis 786360079786. Receive 0079. Eagles Texas show. At 6797467974. I'm also curious to see what is realistic role will be in year one more dip into that in just a moment what's brought the phone lines that are all lit up let's go first of Miami were Jonathan is standing by Jonathan thanks for joining the show are you doing this evening. Hey good evening Greg rate on loans the probably. Because. You know I've been excellent in all told being you know. It was a miracle happened that let you back Collins or Luke kind of shelled out close. By you know. It and the outcome hoping maybe we got Austin Jackson dinner there John Carlin and that they. So when part of Alabama I. I was really too excited about it you know but after watching a couple videos. Of weaknesses than strength and and being very highlight even though that the release shall everything. I saw look at this guy is a pit bull and he's he's very aggressive he should keep physical. He looked like someone to gonna get under people's skin and you know I've I kind of like that you know you she's gonna bring a post. A book content type to a floor you know and you know the whole thing about carrying him with a white I mean. I didn't do it by reaching that point like that and mean we we need to bring something different in Hanoi Hannah so teens cannot just coincidence that. But this guy he seemed like you know hit a pretty good shot from a lot of other people are saying and that's something you can development in terms of work ethic. You can't teach anybody work as a candidate seems to have that. You guys he's a character Jonathan the B raved about him his back story in terms of his motivation so. I'd OB it's thank you for the phone call Jonathan beach and to see how that develops again. I wanna make this clear most of these picks because there's so young it's gonna take them a couple of years before they can truly have a huge impact. I think the impressive thing to me about bam what he brings a table believes that his body is NB ready. So it's not like he's a lorry Markkanen where you question whether he's an act of put on a bunt to wait before he can. Go through the rigors of an NBA season appears a calorie that requires. At the same time though I I do wonder this steals the actual skills in terms of being a basketball player in the ability to shoot maybe put the ball on the floor at some point his career if that the bills properly. We know we can duck we know we can run the floor we know all the possible around the rim he can fish there isn't nobody's questioning that and penalties get pushed around. My question would be as he develops can he. Acquire a jump shot that's reliable from fifteen feet. Because if that's the case then I really like the pick but at this point that's not his reputation and that's why. I have some questions let's go to Cooper city Joseph was standing by Joseph thanks for joining the show what's going on tonight. Period on the incur. Our current in the order pick current. Although. In Miami and booked and our country award our own little guys. We're not around enough money to keep on foreigners out on Iraq and now I need some are not our call for us on which in a pretty good buckle. We're currently. There you go and really speak meant wore a critique. Your garden want to open market broke the charm and I'm. From the bigger require all. You can guard multiple additional he's very quick on his feet trump be mine so I mean doctors are you aren't going to Rick learned Mark Green and eclectic beat month. All result but I'm currently. The guy out of there like. You're on the white collar. I mean guide to create your own harper and Barbara are create content are. Gordon injury injure it out to you Joseph was shot appears you're going to be critical to Sharaud Curry not brought. About a practical to pick. Jill appreciate it it's a good breakdown thanks to a phone call. Com yeah I agree with you I did two of the bodies there the ability to play defense and all the intangibles you talked about certainly important. My question will be whether you know what what is his ceiling going to be right is this going to be guided he's gonna come may just be the backup for some whites out of that's a case it's not a bad pick if if he sticks proper number of years at the same time. People will do with this pick as we will with all the other picks that we talked about it whether in the heat history or down here in town. Remorse some of the dolphins history is will compare the other players it is position. And so when I take a look did. Just a form of do the exact Collins went right so that he did have a chance to take Campbell will compare him is that columns also compare him. To adjust and pat knew went sixteen to TJ we pretty Tina John Collins in nineteen Harry Giles at twenty and seed. How all of those players developed during their Tom Lee quickly is good to Hialeah. Stuff on this Donald thanks for joining the show. I agree. That. That would actually. Change it up. We. And at no point at. Which people around. In school. In New York. Jets and I'll call all right. Thank you startled or go short and sweet deal like sit. I'm getting a mix on the on the text line in terms of whether people like the pick or they don't know Roger and Gordon on the line we're gonna take a quick break. Welcome back it's more your phone calls and your text messages is overreacting. The fourteenth overall pick in the 2017 MB draft the heat. Selected bam out of buys you the senator from Kentucky.

Welcome back here to 790 Greg likens filling in for Josh Freeman here on this Friday night hope everybody. Is having a great start to their weekends and appreciated tune in here is 79. Looking back on last night's heats selection of Kentucky senator bam out of bio. 69 nearly 610243. Pounds and you'll like he's ready to play in a man's league because. A virtual strip it was hilarious during the press conference today. How in all he was of a nineteen year old who pets have a body I mean he just tell looking back in reflecting back on that so. He got themselves a physical specimen the question will be will he develop into. A stretch for. A stretch five will he just be a backup and patrol the paint and around the rim much like his some Whiteside and that's kind of the question here I do wonder whether he would have been better off with a more polished. Offensive player. To complement. The sun Whiteside is set to be a contrast to what what's that brings the table. And that's the debate we're having tonight again we won't know for a few years and I do give the heat time of credit for having the conviction this is a guy they wanted. The humorous part about this from my standpoint is last night we are doing the heat. Show where we are down their American Airlines Arena and myself Josh Freeman Tommy tide were interviewing Glenn writes former heat great. And he flat out told as he goes all I know I know were do when I just can't tell you yet this is before the draft started and where count trying to pry. It do it a little bit me you know hey Glenn CB slip couple of them were were to worry crazy. Interrogations of any sort but you knew that he knew what he had in mind and I think he felt very comfortable they're gonna get their guy. Because nobody projected bam the goal as high as fourteen. So I take it from an organizational standpoint they had. Great conviction that this would be the player on the board that they wanted to need either fourteen so I congratulate him for that. Now they're gonna have to do a lot of work in developing miscues. In sued the best player that he can be let's go back up the ball lies 786360079. Eagles sex show at 679. 746797. Worlds go to Miami Roger sent in by Roger thanks for joining the show what are. Basic take my call yeah it's not. I wanted to say looking out last year I don't know of your mental fight I went down we were kind of short on big man. We had a car white and we have the mr. Starr books. Udonis has them on his way out for his own. So I think it was a good move to go edit it a guy could go around there plays it. Well I can't replace Chris Bosh by. If he were lacking in size last year we owed it to we have that was a big man beside like silent like I went down with a every man. And he was pretty clumsy in my opinion. But anyhow. I think it was a good pick and I think going to be good for all of these some bad goes down near Miami because her last name. It's pretty. Similar code on their toes. So all right or you have a good day now. We all right Roger thank you. There's no doubt it fills a need they need a big guy and so that bad that's that's not in question here. Willie Reid is likely to depart in free agency so I think this is a good contingency plan for them. They'll likely bring in a veteran big man as well I would guest via free agency not a high price won by any means so. Yeah I'm with you there we just are Roberts who's also play a role as a player who could be a big but he just can't stay healthy and still questions remain whether they're gonna get rid of him or keep him around he did opt in to a six million dollar contract so. What do you am fills a need the question will be you know what is the ceiling for him. I think we all hope that he did Elsinore great all around player but my thought is that if you're gonna bring in a role player to be. Oh play alongside Hassan Whiteside at some point in his career you need somebody you can shoot the basketball is it's difficult this day and age to play two guys who need to be around the basket to be effective. If you have a Luke Babbitt type brightly loop rabbit is in a silly special player by any means but he does bring one special attributes of the table he can shoot. The lights out of the ball so when you line him up next Hassan Whiteside suddenly you've got four guys on the outside with your big man in the middle. All can shoot the three and then Whiteside patrolling the paint. We have it the other way around your play counts 32 then he can Clark brings up an MBA that continues to be more open. In terms of the shooting and the skill level offensively so that's my thought on that Gordon is in Miami gore joins the show Gordon thanks for joining us are you doing. But and they wanted to guy from duke canard that couldn't get any got big barely anyone that actually ability got fixed so they basically took. The bad guy on the board who feel the need Willie Green and up and seven at ten million dollars for totally ready so he's done so. But it it is not about the draft this bit about what Iran making get a line up next get it looks like Roddick waders. Hayward James Johnson and at some white site well that would have been bass that's not gonna happen when the nominal money but you never know everybody. But that Syria and trying to bill hot they they're only gonna have. Under forty million dollars worth of scap sorry that it didn't Margaret Johnson winters and for that much money. Now return you you don't know oh okay that's a Gordon. Though come on here and act like you're the authority your pat Riley's younger Brothers somebody got some inside information. And then you're you're a drop these scenarios like well this is what's important is what they gotta do. Let's be realistic brings some education and some knowledge to the table you can't just say they're gonna sign Hayward Dion Waiters and James Johnson. Don't have enough money. Jewelry search of prey. I appreciate your friend and and I hope for your sake and my sake and all of our six down here he put together the best lineup possible. And we seeded team there goes the playoffs after they missed out on a tiebreaker scenario this past season. But come on Gordon Hayward. Now with the adjustment this is big news a couple of days ago Andy didn't get a lot of play because we're all talking about the free agency possibilities these trade rumors and of course the draft. But it appears. That the salary cap is gonna be 99 million dollars about two million dollars less than projected so Gordon Hayward instead of having. A cap number his first year about 31 million dollars is more likely to be 29 million dollars in his first year. So if that's the case and heater gonna have. 34 point six million dollars in cap space after Chris Bosh leaves and maybe they can stretch out a Josh Roberts contracts so its two million dollars. Each year in selecting helped them out. The problem is. Gripped her Hayward excuse me or or Blake Griffin at the decided what drew him they're gonna have to be paid one. 19 point seven million dollars. And if if you just have that scenario of five point seven million dollars. Available. To address the wrestler roster now if you stretch out Mike Roberts steal. Then you can. Suddenly get about 38 million dollars which which can help out she got nine million dollars but. You study reveals on either waiters or Johnson for a nine million dollar deal. So that's my problem when you call up and throw up this hypothetical fantasy basketball scenario that makes no sense whatsoever. And that's why the pick a band out of bio is important. Because more and more these days with the salary cap increasing but also the salaries were these Max players increasing. You need to hit on these very very affordable. Young guys who can come in and maybe they don't make an impact immediately. They make an impact in the next couple of days next couple of years excuse me. Suddenly you've got a player who's making little over two million dollars for the first few years whose career was extremely. She. Relatively speak. As of Goran here comes here for 29 million dollars you can say goodbye. Most likely to waiters and jobs. Now the core of Johnson and waiters. Coming back the two of them that's much more realist. And I picked the best case scenario is if you can get a guy. Either waiters were Johnson and I would say if you're gonna pick between the two waiters is 25 compared to thirty years old for Johnson so you bring back waiters. Any consigned Hayward if you can somehow make that work. It's gonna take some. Salary cap gymnastics for Pat Riley in the crew to get that to happen. They Debbie the ideal scenario. That's intriguing you know about a week from tonight is when at all is going to get started as I mentioned in the liners so it's going to be a lot of fun I do wanna recently stats residues of four take a quick timeout. Tom the angels gonna join us next year look forward to getting his insight. On all of this. Some of these some of bam once a spam could be Joel Anthony part two. Melbourne as yours is Greg of this it doesn't pan out the heat need to reevaluate their scouting team they already messed up passing on Devin Booker. Would have given them scoring in outside shooting for years to come. Other says we look at Golden State they have a lot of threes but at what point. What put them over the top was appoints the paint a preliminary paint points we can be any small ball seats. Owens is a pitcher dead wrong and pat we trust he can shoot better than you think plus. He plays defects so just a sampling of what everybody's saying give back to more text messages you send those in at 6797467974. We'll get back to where phone calls little bit later were coming up next. Tom De'Angelo does a great job covering the Miami for the Palm Beach post. Those on the program and just tomorrow. Almost 07 the ticket as a party for you to join us at the BBC center on July 4 beginning at 5 PM music by the Baha Men who let the dogs out and the romantics what I like about Jews. Admission and parking are free celebrate July 4 with a ticket. At the DBT center. Welcome back here to 790 Greg likens with you fill in for Josh Freeman on this Friday night over everybody's having a great start. To their weekend right now we're gonna go out to. The phone lines in joining us is Tom De'Angelo covers the Miami Heat the Palm Beach post and joins us on the Ryan fuels downstairs to media source guests lined they're truly steps beyond convening did you follow on Twitter at Tom Diaz low 44. Tom always good to talk to you puzzling dorm. I'm doing I'm doing fine Rachel so would have on the cubs come into town and and and that the holiday her job. Well that's exactly the way I described because I I don't say tonight the Josh is that the Marlins game even though tomorrow's parties at the cubs game. We'll be right that's right proposal line. So I'm 80% of the end of the net. In that ballpark right now I'm sure. That's true right to receive that no matter what it will pop the team from out of town comes in. It's it's of referral in terms of the those fans are Devoe migrated down here. So inept it inevitably a popular team can. Me being. Grew that we ought or ought to just lay it up just waited a baseball that unfortunately. That's a case where you on the other hand Tom I do know that that this town is. Passionate about his basketball as the earth. Last night and he'd select to Kentucky's spam out of Baidu with the fourteenth overall pick. Yet is it to dodger press conference this afternoon I know he spoke via conference call of the media last night. What are your takeaways are about these kids just off the bat before cinema McCourt. Well I think number one it was a good shape pick them the heat aren't you know this is in the Golden State Warriors where they just so you know they can take it. We can take apply everything they can't but it's not like they're there rosters are here they. They figured they going to lose Willie Reid and in would you look at the skills that. It's very similar you know it the energy runs come on the floor. You'd dunks most of his scoring is you know when Chinese coast that this close to the rim. Beastly defense blocked shots and subjecting what were we we did he deal BA. You know it it all goes as expected to be appealed slide that robbery well. And you know I I I knew little about him he wasn't a guy that was on many of our radars and what Wheeler. Looking at that some of the players you good man who could win with the heat. And I'm pretty impressed I mean I I hate he's usually very high character guy the heat just raved about him I wasn't there today I was doing. This stuff from left over from last night now. Anthony Chang was the restaurant but but I side conservative but he said today. While I was watching when Pat Riley came in last night at 1 in the morning listening to him about what he said in the they're very impressed with the character. And the work ethic and and G is now what they heard from him. Betty just think it's is that going to be seamless transition for him it. You know learn the NBA game and you know is that that he should be able to make this transition pretty well. Tom I don't claim to know more than they he do Bermuda dues for a living blight deploying devil's advocate for a moment I do question. Why didn't take a big event still set provides more contrasts as some Whiteside one of those stretch for is that it TJ we've been John Collins a guy who at least. In college prove that he could shoot from the outside doesn't mean bam can develop. The general public is after boutique at least at first there. Yeah I think what people look at and say that he'd league is going one way and keep you know have these big guys that back kind of opposite that. But the but he but he got a bit but he started you know like we saw what they get flat last year they have Luke Babbitt was eight. You know that that from typical stretch who would stretch for in more than three point shooter that he rebounder. Improve his defense that he played quite probably a little better defense than that we expected to. But but I think. You know what you were saying we're draft in this guy eighties starting at oral forward. But occasionally you know he's going to be. He's going to be a guy who vetoed any 1012 minutes a game in the rookie and then eventually just. Just just. Unless he really develops that I've that he could not see and in any other team could see that. He's going to be a backup big man and back up guys it's gonna help key defensively in the preached. So let me get chilly. I I I get a but I do understand too that. He'll lead John Collins is what John Collins. That it took three college he's more of a back to the basket guy probably a little better. I think job. I think damages prime batted sensibly got a shot blocker. John Collins is a little bit more skilled and buying property and the better I would guess he has about a midrange jumper right now and had a better chance to develop. Jumper then bam does did you leak would be. Very similar to that Luke Babbitt got ready deftly he gets scored all levels of three point shooter. It needs he prototypical. Stretched long stretch former acting they're looking to. In their minds. That the talent outweighed. That that. That specific skills that because I think. The one thing they did that I like is it took a big because that that most positioned vis the other. The other option weren't worried Justin Jackson and you know they'll be some three era. A tour to recharge and get on them right now and depending on who comes back but they have a lot of them last year. They don't have many wars I mean by each state we didn't think we would like one comes Romney on the war that team. Italy Corsica on that team are going to be Carole white. And there Matta by now becomes the habits of create you know costing jobs created a welcome back we don't know what but that was the position. Tom Diaz who covers the money into the Palm Beach post joins this year on 79 detected. And Tom away from basketball for a moment. Eight these real name is Idrees but they called spam is not a great nickname and for those our audience today news story is the origin of a nickname. It is that it optima I don't know how many of the the younger and members of the audience ever watched I know of the Flintstones. But I loved ones don't with a kid. And he was lucky the Flintstones and the one year old that he flipped over he knocked over flipped over coffee table. Which on the planes under the camera bam bam rubble army rebels shot. Who is being damn damn because he lose. To expect. Like I backed terrorist who just. Why walked around knocking over things. And now wants wants them banned that this is on the side column bam. Bam bam and went off in the stock. And it kind of goes directly into. It does and I think it's a broadcast dream right definitive like a basketball right he absolutely absolutely especially basketball you know. Predecessor for about twelve player that is in the end but really any weak it is still it is a broadcasters can. Tom looking ahead it's a free agency now that we of the draft in the book so one askew with some new address story lines in a moment but it does it taste the heated up Pat Riley. Had an interesting take you wrote about this for the Palm Beach post that even though the team wanna make some major upgrades he kind of told everybody can pump the brakes because. Movement in free agency might be limited release according to power rile. Well. He's looking at last year in a lot of people a lot of teens. Gave up contracts they have not regretting we've already seen two of them get rid of them that's been less than a year. And already the you know murder of the all the warm and by the homecoming for quite what to Wear us done. The lakers admitting the mistake that everybody colony sites and coupons dot he dot. And team did you know and that is that there would there were a lot of those on the while staying champ apart just people that some of these contracts of sale would know. You did the body that was being thrown around. And now can try to get up and those contracts and and I think it is he believed to have the teams will have learned a lesson. And India not control on the money in the opening heat sinks in the league why this there's this already is not a very deep is not it's not a star studded. Create easy class but. When you think of the the ones that are out there well the top war rob or. Afford that you and I look at what kind of a group of six or seven. And for the very easily could return to their tour that we don't short Garay curry go back both state. Chris Paul and deeply group in this hot Chris Paul went with Golden State might regret it Griffin go I would I would I would. Yes for sure one of the to come back with if there was one of the two was Paul what. Probable from the Pennsylvania is more off the board now pat while he eagle repertoire what it is if he could light up there I don't think Gordon Hayward going back to Utah. And got Paul Millsap and now they're. Now that. The palace garden may be going back to Atlanta so you can't one of the obstinacy it's changed use and actually talk about it in the league that obviously using the new rules. If you use these players more incentive kind of vehicle to make a lot more money by reciting. Would it he'd at least initially at least the first one years were that to that five year long term contract the dollar to a lot more so so he just kind of like. Okay you know but he expect every check miracle of express Pat Riley. It took turns things around and he said how he regretted using the word wail because because I was gonna put expectations on him and but but there's a chance on me at least we know they gonna try like technical effort Gordon Hayward. And in soleil that roster with players whether they resigning do beyond. In James Johnson and not at the beside him obviously they wouldn't have we'll put on the backs but. But bill don't let they will get somebody but you know and they and they still may get a Mac guy but it's not going to be. Is that there are going to be that I don't I agree with the battle field lot of guys changing teams. Yet who covers the Miami Heat the Palm Beach post it ball on Twitter at Tom diesel 44 Julius here on seven on the ticket. And you know we get the news over the last day or so that the salary cap number is going to be a little bit lower than anticipated so. That's collateral as well writes I mean I know that. A guy like Hayward won't have the same starting value on the open market now it'll be a little less than thirty million dollars as compared with 31. But it's also going to limit to heed all these other teams have tried to create salary cap space or room in their effort decides some of these big name create. I'll have everybody go down might leave millions so it's kind of you know uniform across the board in the people to eat at about 35 million dollars. An end in cap space. Yeah yeah I'm a little bit but the other way you know ways of rock he. Until problems stretched got the club contract which means they'll probably release him if they release them they saved four million dollars this year in the cap. Instead predicament they're six million dollar hit one in one year they can spread out over three years and take two million the next two years so that that would save four million. Maybe this might mean you know. It is but one player that it could affect more than any. Is that was Wayne Ellington that you keep having to opt out his contract and it would cost them six million to bring them back when I don't think that if they bring them back they're going to. They're going to work out a note to root and not pick up an option but we're on a longer term deal less certain for less a dollars. Over the next two years to kind of give themselves some cap space there to buy. But I mean is that it. Kept everybody back you know that it's equal across the board is not just that he can use that. The three million so. In and a couple players that might you know it will affect it will affect some players to bolster the ability to. To sign and you know more than bush instituted to really give up that money you know it's a little three million last four. For some teams that that's high percentage of heat that it's a little bit. But I think they'll and I think they'll still be able to do whatever they're going after us not affect them what they don't have to. Looking back did last night's action and I know that it's deal entering the night that the big news to be marked helpful slow and so blow up the draft but the biggest news adds a pay Jimmy Butler. Being shipped out of town with a number sixteen pick going for the bulls the timberwolves exactly being Chris Dodd in the number 78. And I knew we heard the rumors that the bulls were looking to trade him and the Butler maybe on the move but what is your reaction so we see a legitimate star actually. Headed up north now to Minnesota. Well I like the Minnesota building bit surprised that not surprise that we don't want to burn atop typically would probably never would have been traded to Minnesota so that Minnesota had a and Baghdad objectives yet to really go after him kind of terrible this former coach. I really thought he got traded it was going to be I thought that we bought. I did to Cleveland never really in the game Cleveland doesn't just have. There is no way they could have got what these teams need weather's bootable start. Butler of the patients were all Georgia it though both those teams with the we'll look to try tricks and they just couldn't pull that off and don't have the space and they don't have the players to. That as well and teams wanted younger players to get ya know they're there we don't like it soaks the resentment sort of a lot of young players like that. You know walked in those two I. I'm assuming Boston was an addiction to be in involved in every trade for potential star and whatever reason they. You know that the bulls like the Minnesota. Opera better Boston didn't. Big increase there offer whatever they added whatever reason so I cannot Lakewood Minnesota Billy what's interesting though is it just another. Star and goes in the east and the west and knows what it's already loaded. And and you know Paul George and I know but the lakers do need but it was a Minnesota you get. Did you get the ball least. All these players that some of the anybody whose movie movie where it is and what that does is that. Great news routine duties that are trying to catch you know that it that it just days it is already two team that finished ahead of the heat. Chicago of that they would cry in the when the tiebreaker in Indiana. Have. Have. That you could be you know the issue anything they're gonna pass from. You know the bulls are just totally blown up we go in going out going rebuild about a what. The Wayne because he's going to be there one year and the particularly if they don't trick I'll do it just a mask I don't know how they can't live with that for yet they have the trade of I mean there's two teams that he can probably get a guy up ahead of you who knows what kind of allowing what happened at Toronto with a back on while we. They could actually move that very thing you know I can actually. Trap them so picky yes. You don't forget forget the it area of the site Gordon Hayward and Jamie got them I mean incredibly huge jump back conference because that the conference is not getting any stronger. An argument in Atlanta is also definitely as a happens and it exactly right Abbie if they sound good Haley and James Johnson. My feeling is Leo in competition for the receipt with Washington watch. And I would I would put Boston Cleveland still Rodham you know out of there arranged. But right up to them with what Washington Milwaukee Miami via that probably in that billion next week teams battling at least forty people but I. That that would be that would be great first step. Oddly pap and try to get back to the top of the conference. Certainly when Tom Diaz of covers the heat for the Palm Beach post joining us here on 790. And it was another storyline besides that the names being more like Jimmy Butler and every to a back to distract is the Europe the point guard because farm program. Taking the tops and and these point guards specifically or the fits with their teams that that you like the most. I. I think Sacramento did tonight got a bigger Justin Jackson later on yeah and the hundred pocketed just because they had a chance to sit there ought to bulk up. Backcourt between that took the ball was still out there. But that you helpful. Paul is that that that that's a great he gets he goes into a great situation now. The question is has beaten them seven instruments they help if they do they get something else but we don't know you know that it would they're talking about as Big Three of them lead. I have been dreadful than anything anyone honestly you don't want to lose this step on the court. For an in an NBA game and of these and they actually stepped on these off because he's so it and he had just as. Such hard luck with the injuries. I like those two Korea. I don't know if this is doing I mean I think it was a little high for him. And that the Galena. I think they probably would have been better off I believe mom could approach to start New York. You know they are even. I think market a market was gone. But I know I I I really like I'd like what's Sacramento doing which probably Sacramento. And it's hard to. In fact continue that because both guys not just clamoring to go to Sacramento. If Philadelphia guys stay healthy finally. You know these guys have been thinking of what used. Could this finally might pay off but they still have a lot of question marks over that not do it all you know I think I think they got a guy they need yet. I'll but the those two like I like that hit the best well. I think it's going to be fascinating to see you know is always so much. You know we're rouge feel some confidence on these players we we break down and we feel optimistic entering the draft it's going to be fun to see over the next few years of develops. Into the stone pillars of these teams are open for. And like music and you use the keyword few years they're all they're all nineteen year old kid. And it's gonna take time and in their gonna take you three years I have been you know we didn't get troops in news that in this. So it did did going to be a lot of patients. It's going to be there. He didn't have to use a lot of patience with a lot of these kids because because you know they're just gone into one of them. I have had a long way to go before they reach. Richard Neer NBA maturity. Certainly that's the case and Tomlin quickly what what's next in Newark and a free agency in about a week in the summer leagues around the corner of the the FB offseason I know. A we we didn't devote much time after the warriors wrapped up when they were a championship and we still a lot of action in the NBA record. It's a bottle full Monty are really beginning before wind down a bit regularly get its August and August the league virtually shuts down. But down but these these next this this next month peaceful weeks would next week you know ripping up for free agency routinely getting near summer league rosters together. And none of them than two weeks to real good the bad but even though we kept that in the craziest with Italy. In the crease we get a year when would create shots at midnight next Friday. Any of that going on in that start that didn't get about a year a full week of just the incredible you know. It gives one rumor report after the other guys Lionel country leading in and expect during the contract and then they start. And then teams who kind of spilled out there rot with the initial wave of CA get to the startling about. Well that have been signed initially were the exhibit are filling up Iraq within the next kind of level guys and that and then it. Special quiet down and is then finally you know it but I look at it really is. Eight it's about you get about a mile and half where you are a month or so about the app quiet. It's it's really you know almost it's like Kevin app mark beat because. We started yet in September come rolls around and we're gonna be that bow to weeks or three weeks away from several of the opening of training camp. Right now it's amazing and the MBA had been that he did a nice domino makes things easier for you Tom and kept. All the reporters but it makes it on in terms of sports talk radio for the fans that heavily story lines.

The ticket the upper bodies have been a great Friday night Greg like consider filling in for Frito has that we continue on here on 79 of the ticket. Hasn't got a lot going on in the world sports of course we've been discussing. What transpired last night in the 2017. NBA draft that he with the fourteenth overall pick. Selected to Kentucky's. Bam out of bio and a little bit later on on the show we're going to a replay. We talked to drop by six minutes last night dumb myself Josh Freeman Tommy tied so you miss that wanna hear from the newest member of the he will have that conversation a little bit later. Now also wanna get into. Some of the other story lines that emerged from last night as it was in active evening it was a lot of fun to keep track of it was one of the deepest drafts we've had in awhile right in terms of the talent and the anticipation so. Allred talked about all that before we did and anything else it's time to get to headlock it's. Here's what's. Now in Miami. XY AM South Miami. Right you know. Over the weekend see. The Marlins but cubs is under way from Marlins Harkin currently. It is score looks down their last night the two teams combined for twelve bronze doors of the combined for twelve runs. The cubs at eleven and the Marlins had one so's very lopsided so far bottom of the third 00. From Marlins park is John Lackey and Jose uranium both. Pitching well early on will keep you updated. On though went one of those teams gets on the scoreboard this evening meanwhile on the hardwood the Miami Heat held niche director press conference for the first. Round pick number 14 overall I am on a bio this afternoon with Pat Riley described the Kentucky big man as a perfect fit. For the heat. Elsewhere in the NBA according to multiple reports old Blake Griffin and Chris all have opted out of their contracts with the clippers and will become unrestricted free agents. And finally the hockey where the 2017. NHL draft takes place tonight from the united senator. In Chicago it's a two day draft the first round is tonight the Florida Panthers on the tenth overall pick in that first round. I believe they just made the seventh pick to New York Rangers so we'll keep you updated win over the Panthers make eight pick are coming up as they're just a couple of selections away so we'll keep you updated on that those are your headlines as we continue on here on 790 Ewing didn't bowl. In the conversation we incurred to phone calls 78636007976. 360079. He can also Texas show at 6797467974. And you can follow me on Twitter or in Iraq me on Twitter Greg likens GR EG. L I K. Let's talk about the biggest news from last night because you know we could discuss of the top ten all freshman. And an eighteen year old from France which is amazing right you have all of the top ten picture either freshman. In college this past year or you get an eighteen year old from France he got sixteen freshman slept in the first round overall and NBA record two seniors taking in the first round the fewest. In the common draft era. Five point guards kicked in the top ten. And then Kentucky continues to dominate the draft twelve lottery picks in the last six years. For the wildcats. Every year deals like this is a John cal Perry. Recruiting tool the NBA draft he shows up negates inner beauties talking. Is prospects the players he's kiss and their moms and whoever else is there and it's turns into probably his best recruiting tool of the entire year. But the biggest news wasn't Marco faults number one overall the sixers wasn't Alonso ball. Of filling his dad's proclamation that he would become a Los Angeles Laker. It was a Jimmy Butler was traded to the timberwolves. Minnesota is getting Butler and the number sixteen pick Justin Patton a senator from Creighton Chicago receive Zach Levine. Chris Dunn and the number seven pick which turn out to be Lori market in from Arizona. I love this move from Minnesota. Last year Dwyane Wade said part of his goal with the bulls was to mentor Jimmy Butler and how to become quote unquote demand on the team how to be a leader be the face of a franchise. And that's exactly what the timberwolves knee. Carl Anthony towns Andrew Williams Ricky Rubio they've been promoted. As faces of that franchise in town specifically. Is a magnificent player. Tremendously gifted. They need leadership needs somebody to come and be. And alpha dog there in Butler 27 years old a two way player a three time all star is legitimate top of teen performer in this league. Now they surrendered. The second. The most Matsui -- second half double digit leads the league last -- so they can compete with most teams in the league and they would get ahead it almost seems a league. But they couldn't sustain it. And so I think bringing in a veteran who could try to help them closeout games defensive stopper a closer of sorts. That's what they get him Butler that's who they need and of course she's reunited with Tom Thibodeau. Who coached him in Chicago. And you know Chicago received an all right Paul in return. But man. I just said the question what are the world the Chicago thank you. Well you've got a guy and Butler. 127 years old. Is on a cap friendly five year 92 million dollar contract north sounds insane about to cap friendly contract went. Got three years remaining he's nearly seventeen and a half 1000018. Point seven in nineteen point eight million over the next three years. Think about that. Jimmy Butler a legitimate top fifteen player set to make. 78 and a half just under nineteen in just 120 million dollars next three years it sounds like a lot of money and it is for most of what's. When you consider the Gordon Hayward is gonna get probably thirty million dollars in the first year free agency from somebody the Laker prince gonna get thirty million dollars a Chris Paul. All of these free agents were set to hit the open market. Butler is extremely affordable extremely affordable. If you're Chicago why not build a round that player and that contract. You should never sideways in Rondo that's the first part of this problem they got a last offseason if they had. Bitter foresight. When is it better foresight I'm talking about John Paxson and gar Foreman we're the ones making these decisions if they have better foresight you don't sign. A Dwyane Wade is in his mid thirties you don't side Rajon Rondo. Who is an older player as well you go young assemble roster around Butler let him be the fixture in the try to bring another star on the line. Nick Friedel a body who covers the bulls for ESP Chicago dot com rejoin Frito and I early this week. He said the bulls don't believe Butler can be the best player aren't championship team and that's essentially why they wanted to move on from him. And move in this direction so they did that. But man I don't know why they wouldn't take advantage of this cap friendly deal. With the salary cap continue to rise. While they had him in house maximizes guy during his. Peak years bring another star you have to get younger players around him. In the bulls could have gone about this soul much more intelligently. Had they really thought this through. Plus I mean. Based on the bulls' thinking. It's interesting because they didn't wanna build around him they don't think he's going to be the best player championship team when he doesn't have to be the best player and a potential championship team in Minnesota. They're about what Karl in these towns brings the tape. He performed as a 21 year old. A second year player. Of the 225 points a game twelve rebounds. One and a half blocks to an app assists 54% from the floor 37% from three point range 83% on the free throw line. I'm convinced he's gonna be the best player timberwolves uniform moving forward long term it would put on the roster so. Minnesota got this right. They got a guy in his prime with a great contract. Resorted prone to be a top fifteen player they seem him. With Carl Anthony towns Andrew Wiggins is an emerging players well and Ricky Rubio can distribute the balls walls anybody in the league. I love what Minnesota did now are they going to be able to compete and contend against slice of the golds they warriors. Not right away there's still some work to do what early thrust of the playoff conversation and in. Really really difficult conference in west. Yeah I agree I think that's the case so I think it's really really exciting if you're Minnesota Timberwolves fan if your bulls ran. I don't want to target area that's a bit deflated. Butler by the way was in Paris when he learned of the trade. You found out from his agent in about 2 AM Paris time. According to it's a Grammy was over there would now former teammate Dwyane Wade and according to ESPN Butler along with a wade. Russell was spurred James Harden Carmelo Anthony and some other MBA players. We're in Paris attending the Paris fashion shows. So there you go. Its interest in Syria over there. Watching these models. Plot they're aware on the run way and you find out at 2 o'clock in the morning. It you're headed to an even colder city gone from the windy city up to frigid Minneapolis. Meanwhile the best part of this story isn't everything I just talked about. It's affected the trainer Jimmy Butler took to social media last night immediately following this trade being reported. Travelle gains. The trainer I didn't hear I never heard them before. He's a trainer Jimmy Butler each we have this after the trade was announced quote. Ol and 82. Worst culture in the league. I've met drug dealers with better morals than their GM. He is a liar and everyone notes and quotes. In reference. To gar Foreman. And the bulls. Severe ago. Jimmy Butler trainer has mad drug dealers would better morals than the general manager of the Chicago Bulls. Are mrs. you don't always see both sides is also rewrite. I love social media because I can get instant access and permission. And I can put information out to the followers that I have and it's a great way to communicate is a great way to stayed. In touch with people also stay on top of news. Demille says. At the same time for those who don't use it properly this can be a problem so we received a slot with a guy gets traded whether. Player maybe falls further in the draft and anticipated. Whatever might be their friends their trainers whoever are around them. They have the liberty to take to social media themselves and express their opinions. Travelle gains did this by the way. Tweet has since been deleted so I think Jimmy Butler even though he was in Paris got the word out to his body incinerate. Lets on that now and you know I am still making those ninety million dollars you can still train me so let's move on from the Chicago Bulls. Blood weird weird situation there to sue les that wasn't the only blunder on social media last night. Hubble Marco Fultz everybody here about this on its program. So this is not something that's uncommon. And it's not just for a BA draft picks it's for any high profile person with a lot of followers. On social media oftentimes. They'll have advertisements they'll have. Company come to them and say we want to sponsor a post that your gonna put on it's a Graham a tweet on Twitter FaceBook post whatever might be. And we're gonna pay you for so T so the watch company. Says DiMarco faults we want to pay you. To post something and it's a Graham after you get draft. We assume you're going to go to the Philadelphia 76ers would just to be safe we're going do provide to you a template. For you to fill out once you get. Drafted now I don't think mark helpful was the one who was responsible for eliciting somebody in his management group is agent. Whoever might be a representative his was supposed to take care of this. But mark health faults. Via his official this program account. Sent this message out and I'm going to try to describe this is best possible for you on reviewing here. But it says quote excited to head to NN imprint sees city. So not filled out. Enjoying V. Like team name. Not filled out tee so it's helped me get started with my team name. Watch crashed Agnes is my time hash tag NBA draft so of course. The assumption from T solar and paying him to do this was that. It would say excited to head to Philadelphia and join the 76ers. Teased so has helped me get started with my. Philadelphia 76ers watch instead it just was fill in the blank because whoever was responsible for its didn't bother. Do the very simple task. Of filling this out ahead. Could just put Philadelphia and 76 is a bit to begin with because we all lose me the number one pick they wanted to err on the side of caution and that it makes him look even dumber. Now this isn't faults is all. I think it's is represented it is because Fultz said on ESPN's broadcast last night that he attorneys hold off. It was going to be off for all you know 2.4 hours and users like I am I'm just focusing on there's going to be in the moment so this is all on his management team. No word on when it whether he's retaining them moving forward by yes that is kind of embarrass so certainly. Plenty of interesting things and one more note on Marco faults this was via the players Tribune. Apparently once he found out that the traded been consummated between the Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers. So the sixers are going to move up the number one pick and he goes for that worked out. He apparently. His trainer. Eliminate planned killing. Isa that was his waking up cells like okay cool do you have a chick filet there question mark. He says a crispy chicken salad for breakfast it's kinda like my good luck charm. Keith my trainer never got back to me about that important questions sort of found out for myself like Google that immediately. Really does have chocolate it is six actually seven if you count one of the airport Boston has zero chip full waits for what its work. And quote from mark kill Fultz. Via the players should be. So there you go mark tell faults. Not so good it's a Graham if you believe what happened last night but apparently loves his chicken sandwich is from chip away. There you go more than you needed to know about the number one pick in this year's NBA draft. All right when we come backward and some warmth text messages about the Miami Heat are gonna read some of those 6797467. I support you wanna reacts to the selection of bam out of bio dome.

Stand with his sixteenth home run receiving nineteenth home run of the season so there are up one nothing on the cubs and then also. Just want to point this out I'm not gonna break this pick down for a so I'm not sure everybody's disappointed by. The tenth overall pick in the NHL giraffe first round beat Florida Panthers have selected. Owen tip many right wing from the messiah who are still hurts. So there ago. Oh and to remember. The Florida pets will so you more about that a little bit later rumble let's get back to the Miami Heat and his draft pick. Bam out of bio. Lot of people were not expecting this it was a surprise I was part of the draft show last night with Josh Friedman and Tommy tiger and weeks. It was funny we're speculating as. The heat were on the clock. Waiting from the thirteenth pick to the fourteenth pick to see what was gonna transpire what they're gonna do we have just seen a couple of players that. Were thought to be potential targets for the needn't look canard and Don Mitchell go off the board. To Detroit and then there's numbers are you to always picking a thirteen because of trade. Daniel we talked about the potential for Justin Jackson maybe TJ leave for John Collins and Terry Giles. A number of different players Odierno we Jared Allen we we talked a number of different guys. And instead it is bam out of bio the pick out of Kentucky and I told you a little bit about him tonight let's hear from. The godfather himself Pat Riley this was him last night. It was a live press conference Amelie I know you're there it was well after midnight when he finally address the media following the conclusion of the NBA draft and this is what he said about. Bow wow factor that I am brings the tip. Yeah it's a rough actor you know he's not you know he's 71. You know like a son but he plays like him you know she's now. And he's above the rim player for real well all the guys you know. Try to live up to him and his feet his quickness his ability we permissive situations bigger perimeter guys. Obviously. I'm a big fan of what John does as it from. Coaching standpoint and Kentucky and so he has great system and but just also want to set tough tone uniform powers just. Gates are blown away by his story. And his background in and his motivation and and you why he is year coming is a lot of voters sidebars to this other than just this incredible athlete so. We felt he was a bachelor. For now the best shooter. You know countless you know we need him when he doesn't work out for us you know may thirtieth fifty threes and released so. All this stuff comes from the country. So. The Dwight Howard comparisons I think who were going to have he's honest poll released based on his physique. I think he's is certainly an apt comparison to make my question is this and I'm not play devil's advocate here I'm legitimate on this. Like I am happy that the heat had conviction in this was their guy. But my question will be how will he fit because. He apparently impresses workouts by displaying his shooting ability you know Riley said it you know he's not a great shooter but he proved that he could do it. He also says in his press conference that he may thirty out of 53 pointers at a great released so they they heater company can develop a part of his game. And the heat of all teams have a proven track record of doing that. The culture that we hear about all the time the bill is to develop talent and maximize the ability and potential players who joined the franchise. Second to none I mean this is the best this is what they do the best of anybody in the league but I I do wonder and it's something to a monster over the next few years. They give everybody the time to develop. And mature in their roles in the National Basketball Association but would they he'd been better off drafting a player who could more definitively compliment Hassan Whiteside. And play alongside him down the road I know that the short term fix is gonna be he'll be likely the back of senator. And you come in. Dispel. The sun Whiteside put down on the rolled. Would you be better off having it TJ leave for John Collins lease more specifically because he can stretch the floor. As a three point her. As compared to having. This guy in bam out of bio who has great physical tools and essentially has a ton to work with what. My question is why not acquire a player who complements Whiteside in what he brings. In terms of a contrasting skill set to the table that would be my question. If you're the Miami Heat. Paulette said again I credit to you for having the conviction. And I certainly think him among others in this draft are developmental projects heat obviously very high and amp. A lot of work to do to refine his game and add more elements. To his offensive repertoire. To be sure I did like Hasan Whiteside Chiming in on Twitter last night immediately following the picks it quote good we needed other player from North Carolina on the squad. Asides from North Carolina so is bam. And also just the nickname. He apparently flipped over coffee table as a child after watching the Flintstones which is. His mom one of her favorite shows. That's how he got his nickname. Big jam has a much better sound within injuries that's his real name not an against his. His name their juries would damn minute just sounds good right especially your powerful player and a 101 doughnuts in college perfect. Now for those viewer to sit in this you wore number three college and that obviously won't happen with the heat. What don't want sink in for a second I'm assuming all of our heat fans out there know why he's not or number three of course 'cause of Dwyane Wade. Our body worlds on the number thirteen. On his Jersey in the NBA six other players of more than number thirteen for those who care to ball Robinson Kendall gill Alexander Johnson Luther Head Mike Miller. And should Baz Napier so we'll see would band can do for that number thirteen there 21 Rita couple resume a text messages somebody years says we'd sign to get the most money this year to come back to 305 to reunite. Reunited but to be with Gordon Hayward. Interesting thought there. Some real seuss' superlative towns Duma the best one of the timberwolves. Let's I'm asserting I think Carla 2021 years old memories all. Crazy and up were zing is being available but if you're ranked. The top. Players who were under 25 years old the league right now. I beat Carl at the towns could be number one homicides recoup bowl might have an argument there and then pours angers me those three are probably your top three candidates and if they tells the real deal. So I think in the next few years she could be the best player. There even though Jimmy Butler. Use in the mix somebody Yasser says Greg is a possible for the heat. So to restructure Ellington. And cut me Bob today and get Rudy Gay James Johnson and if he were Millsap on the team. That'd be a stretch I think. Again they're gonna sign a Max contract that's gonna start at about 29 million dollars sneaky as we currently sit here. I look 35 million dollars project cap space wants Chris Bosh this contract is in a move to the side so even if you extend out. The contracts which is likely to happen of Josh McRoberts. You're still talking about. I don't know like 38 million dollars. Maybe you stretch it to fortieth you're creative. So it act that's gonna be difficult to get all three of those guys get Ottawa James Johnson's gonna get on the open market. Mean realistically he will be able to bring back James Johnson and Dion Waiters at a pretty easily. If they wanna add another big name in the mix band they're not gonna bring back all three and it's can be difficult to bring back the big name with one of those two. But that tactic is probably your best case scenario if you can do. Somebody else here says. I think it's the same person weighed re signed to get the Max deal this year Riley will land Gordon Hayward this year and then. We will want to rate back down here ring land with the godfather and give him. To play with a cabana dream team to beat the Warners and eighteen boom while battle rhyme too. We cabana dream team and eighteen. I don't know I'm not sure. I'm not sure that's gonna actually come to fruition or whether we can make that happen but it would be pretty cool of Dwyane Wade returned of course only the right price right Buchanan can no price amount when it comes that's a real series is Eric Reid is going to have fun with the name brand. I agree. Man on the highlight reels. These Duncan. Eric Reid might he listen and have a field day. With that let's go out of four water on the phone lines here Mike is standing by Mike thanks for joining the show are you doing tonight. Might either. Our Mike call back. Eluded them in connection there but Mike you wanna do was called back. You're pretty you Saudi reals wanna call he Canas 7863600790. Somebody else years seduce. Let's see. Army he fan and wade is my favorite player but would it be a great punishment of the bulls made we'd play the entire season in Chicago is a payback for opting in. They can't get anything and a trade anyways so why buy him out. Make him suffer through a miserable season. It's well. Also this this is what doing always sign up for right I think he anticipated the ability to contend they did. Barely make the playoffs this past year which are Reebok learned Rondo but it was certainly a dysfunctional scenario behind the scenes. They give Boston nice run in the first round but ultimately. Exited after the first round. And Wayne this is clearly all about the money we knew that 24 million dollars he can't pass that up I don't blame him. He gets as big payday but certainly could at least examine this rosters gimme here Rondo and then it's like all right who else is here Lori Markkanen. Would guide a couple of draft picks coming in know Jimmy Butler what is realistic for them to do. Yeah I think it's going to be potentially. A mess warm and the idea of them keeping around the entire year at big is interesting. I think probably what they'll do is either. Trade him before the deadline which makes the most sense or try to figure out some sort of buyout but yes and I. I'm with you the password is gonna get so. IC recalled from there who are textures of justice is they want the new logo and are. So that's certainly a possibility he is a one of the big name free agents to question will be. What he's looking for on the open market or let's try to Zedillo's through the phone lines for water a John is standing by John thanks for joining the show are you doing tonight. I'm doing all right I equate Beijing Olympics excellent. Saying wait another for the next film bring in Hayward. And it could be anything Obama realized they'd. And I'm being optimistic until coarsely could need to get it going down but he when he comes back he could pick a pay cut. Gordon Hayward the B rabble babble about Riley. This year and it's already been said OK well now although wade they're all good friends on the play together down here we'll have them running out of options on the street. Well at a signatures improper I like your optimism John I don't know how realistic it is in terms of the financials working out that that's the only problem. I mean whatever I was I mean there those signals won't touch would come when you look brought in and out of the way to so I mean if anybody could do that is the god of based. Look that's true I know what I never put anything past Riley so I'm with you there and rightfully have faith in him. I will say though in beg you for the phone call John pre share optimism enjoy the weekend aren't. I will say this on when Shaq came it was via trade so you don't Shaq and they wanted to be here but also to devotes an asset to get them all we did lead to the franchise's first championship. And I do think did. We'll probably reflect back on the Big Three era. Few more years on the road what it is absolutely amazing to think that and I don't it's not a lot of money. It's all relative right when. Like LeBron Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade left money on the table in order for them all to be able to sign them also for them to get Udonis has a Mike Miller under contract. And I know they're making awkward you know over twenty million dollars apiece in close of thirty million dollars a certain point. It's like OK if you're if you're taking a million your lesser million they're less then it's not been that big of a feat but considering. That these guys are. Mostly out to get the biggest made it possible they did that for the betterment of Endesa would eventually. Turn out before straight championship game appearance is a chapter series appearances and he's a pretty phenomenal story. So you never know what could happen by. Wilson was welterweight I'm not hold my breath about the all cabana team. Cabana dream team in 2008 to you know like the creativity though Sosa could stop and we got Mike on the line Jose's on the line where you take a quick timeout won't come back to two mortar phone calls and text messages were talking about. The heat the draft last night and of course the future in free agency just a week away we'll have that next here on seven and detect. Every player hits tonight. I would say you're welcome back Greg likens filling in for Josh Friedman on this Friday night. Check out the ticket on FaceBook like this at seven the ticket would go breaking news behind the scenes videos pictures. Articles and sometimes even our thoughts. Like 0790. The ticket on FaceBook. Hope ariz having a great night as we are entering the weekend 10 what you know and I'll be on on Sunday from 11 AM to 3 PM you can no listen man. Also I'll be filming for Frito on Monday night as well as Josh should be celebrating his twin daughters tenth birthday so that'll be. Cool for the Friedman family. As we get back Fuhrman reward your text messages and to 679 some 46 of nine some four also. It's your phone calls 786360079. U it's 786360. 0790s. Were reacting. Not just what the Miami Heat did last size selecting bam out of Baidu in the draft but also with the may do moving forward. In free agency let's go back on the phones the Fort Lauderdale Mike is standing by Mike thanks for joining the show are you doing. Greg goma who might. Democratic. No I don't it may not wait doesn't go to call went through. A couple of years of his career you know lose the art gains early. And well yeah. Wait wait right now and you know I don't like or how it helps keep up your bureau when Mike our game but arm. And mark scored Hayward. I'm not a big camp Gordon Hayward area though why is. Apparently are guys that first time I'll start earning their eighty year and start. You know it. Or thirty million dollar near salt chill. There's three equality players. All star lea Michele dark cycle buyer picture very good role players. You know this needs to chill. Cleveland. And CER. Albert the you're not shooting. And the cold day and at the you know calm territory so that they need to do. I woke Greenwood getting courting able outright big blow. I don't drop kick Ike being as you'd like Sean and Aram. Understanding correct. I wanted to Korea offered a player when he came in the leak. Com. Eagle at that big darn offered a player can't go on to. Develop an early look at go all the gate. I remember. Air. Three point shooter might eat him three point shooter. Well yeah now do adapt his game I mean he was he wasn't it he was an adept shooter he just hadn't extended all the way of three point line so he was with the heat. Relate to. Each guy or interest drops at eight her. A little longer to get up to the phone call. You know it's interesting. It is reevaluate this have been bam. You know he doesn't have a track record of being able to shoot the ball he said that he knew he can shoot from fifteen to seventeen T even though he didn't do it in college he apparently impressed and opened eyes by shooting the ball pretty well also his work doubts. A big difference so when you bring a like Alonzo Mourning saying in general deal is that Perry have a son Whiteside so I think that's my overall point is not it. Now who knows maybe he can develop I hope we can develop into. Well a jump shooter and can have a legitimate mid range game that that be terrific. Adam was up lettuce is and his physique in the rebounding and running up and down the court bold deal. My thing is that you already got a guy who's his limited offensively in terms of pass the beer on the basket in Hassan Whiteside so if if the thought process here's an auto buyers gonna come and just be his backup. OK again if you're looking for summary go to be. Complementary player to Whiteside down the road and obviously star right away but maybe in a year to. You starting power forward alongside avoid side then that's where my questions resign. So that's my one on its a we got a bunch Tex coming in here and read these as much as we can. From. 76 numbers as we did Gordon Hayward. We won't be able assigned Dion Waiters recanted do you wait on the cheap BP gets bought out. No one here's his I agree about wade let him suffer he made his bed bad coach was there let him enjoy his hometown how. Another says I don't know why people want players who have a history of always being injured and I want Blake Griffin I do not want and you'll Gallinari. Owens says resigned waiters and Johnson we let Ellington walk sign Rudy Gay hopefully we keep Reid with the mid level. This one out the will reads on the back out of the question I mean people bring a Rudy Gay is legitimate possibility I just don't know what he is going to. Asked for. And potentially get on the open market that would be. The question mark surrounding him. Somebody else is tell he's homer he plans to pump the brakes on. The best thing for the heat's futures that he never plays with a team again no more iso ball and no more arguing with a breasts are not getting back on. Oh some shots and doing away. Listen to a way is the best player in Miami Heat franchise history. But I talked to others before. Legally legitimate argument. Bit this team especially in the second half which they went 3011 was much better off. Stylistically was how they played probably thrive. Without him on the roster. Because he just doesn't play the same style of ball that we saw this heat team when it was at its best in the second half of the season what. Where everybody can stretch the floor shooting the three for the most part in all your wings in your guards. And everybody can run up now on the court you don't need to go one on one all the time. And dearest. Really fluid fun offense to watch. Other text your says I for one and it extremely excited about spam out of Baidu joining me heat as a big time Charles brass bulls fan I can tell you firsthand the spam is being. Miss projected in terms his skill set to not think of biz Mac diablo think more along the lines of Kenneth reed young Amare Stoudemire coach cal. This system capped most of his offensive talent hidden much like Carla he sounds at the Davis and co star. Why would agree with one party said there well I mean most of would you said these are pretty right on. But in terms of like Karl on Intel's especially nobody thought that he had much of a jump shot. Coming out of Kentucky because. He could be used to he has so many talented players on an annual basis. That they have to sacrifice. For the team and soul houses coming in and Natalie in your choosy out of range he's got three point ranks. And shot 37% from downtown so that has really good call is Stein I don't know by him and the Davison towns I'm with you on that call sign a extol. A lot to be desired in terms of his development put put some good points there regarding bam. Somebody else yours is please stop guys the heat of not developed a bonafide all star since Dwyane Wade. And this is 22 years apparently enough is enough. Well. I'd get it if you want a nit pick conceded aide who have been a great track picks over the years this is not Pat Riley style it president. You look at these draft history I mean. Seriously. You go back to. Wayward 2003 obviously that was a tremendous pick for them. But since that time there haven't been on a lot of notable vixen in 2004 your first trumpet was to row right. 2005 as Wayne Simien 2007 was Jason Smith would say traded. 2008 Michael Beasley that didn't work out. You moving further along it never first round pick the next couple of years. Even in 2011 that in 2012 they traded that pick to those thirteen no pitched 2014. They traded their pick I mean so. Lot of what they've done other Pat Riley is gone after. Talent that is already established in the week and not gone after players in the draft. Obviously go back to Dwyane Wade does there is a long time ago sold your point is accurate. The same time you can't argue with the fact they've got three championships during that time for. So you may not agree with the method they've gone about it what has been pretty darn success. By the way our our caller Celeste texture who joins before blues John 41 else's the compare a dream team of eighteen is trademarked LO well. Says his trademark. John. He says this is from John allow the station. Always on morning afternoon night show with Mike crazy takes love the states and what we know opinion other on air personality and destined for greatness a little while ago.

Says it's MLB fantastic Carlos park would all star week arrives listen Tobin LeRoy beast and Ethan and perk for your chance to win or you can win them online ticket Miami dot com also our weakest coming. And this is the only station South Florida where you can hear all the all star game festivities including the home run derby and the game AM seven I mean after immortal for three.

Looking forward to continue to look at to free agency with the MBA and of course the Miami Heat before you know more the conversation. Let's go to headlights. Use what's. Now in Miami. XY AM South Miami. Right you call. Game soon. And series between the Marlins and cubs is under way from Marlins park and it's currently. In the bottom of the sixth inning to nothing in favor of the fish and as John Carlos Stanton. It gave blasters straightaway center field for his nineteenth home run it was a solo shot and and Christian yell it's. To see the sacrifice fly to senators scored T Gordon. As that it didn't John Lackey here in the sixth inning right now to output to lawn. As. Looks like. Horse are more team prod owes back from a long stint on the DL is up to the plate so to nothing right now after the Marlins over the cubs keep you updated on that as of the wrist the show goes on meanwhile on the hardwood the Miami Heat held an introductory press conference for first round pick. Bam out of bio this afternoon with Pat Riley describing the Kentucky big men as a perfect fit. For the heat elsewhere in the NBA according to multiple reports bolt Blake Griffin and Chris Paul have opted out of their contracts with the clippers and will become. Unrestricted free agents and finally a hockey where the 2017. NHL draft. Is taking place tonight. From up the United Center in Chicago institute a draft as it will continue tomorrow but the Florida Panthers. Selected 01 tip right wing from the mists agua steel heads with the tenth overall pick in the first round and those are your headlines here. On this Friday night as we continue Juan was to back the phones 786360. 079 is there for water now we're Nelson missed and in my Nelson thanks for joining the show what's going on tonight. You have just talking about B a draft pick itself but maybe. Oh ever in parliament but it doesn't really fit gray light side the white sign on as Max contract he had a couple of years left. Maybe Pat Riley might be the year of dealing him next off season. And you can ban met his replacement. Well possible though I would highly doubt that considering that they have invest so much in Whiteside I hear I recovered from but I think did I mean you're committed to him pretty long term. With what they signed into last year. If a player option in two years and then now at the salary cap or that you're looking at a much higher number of all forward and eat it really develop the game where you can. Go running me off as thorough. Well I think Nelson did it in that. Thought it's going to be a huge season form coming up because who I talked to Alonzo Mourning last night he said he's expecting big things did. Whiteside is trying to developers overall games so if he can continue to develop to become more over reliable offensive threat. Then I would disagree with you if you stays kind of the same way. Then that might be a conversation to have internally that they might be able to use him to get other assets. He had just the Euro map that the rapids are the salary cap space become common starting next year salary cap space would seem that. Alec constructed I mean you actually have much room. Right or you know if it's one of these scenarios like even right now. Are we see Chris asked resigned his potential on the trade block Paul George definitively on the trade block. Then fumbles this time you would say hey you're not penetrate a cell Whiteside but if it's in there really that pops up. Where you can get a proven player that you think maybe to elevate your little further and how might be scenario that they would consider as well. And and yell yeah LaMarcus Aldridge and entrees are now one reason was because appeal as we're on contract mirror or a mop up the beat trading beyond adored him. So if you're trying to trade light side which of one mile you're not gonna get. The value you can get it yet two years left on the contract. That's true but again I think the the talk of trading Whiteside is premature at this point. Paired up so would they know supports the focal. Thank them tonight I mean again Anderson or Nelson's coming from and I wouldn't I wouldn't. Take anything off the table in terms of Pat Riley in his ability creatively. Adjust things on the fly in if they feel that they can get a definitive superstar. For the money that Hassan Whiteside is right now taking up on the salary cap then I can see that happening went. The beard today is currently stands I don't think they have any interest in getting rid Whiteside and he's been such. A tremendous reclamation project for them effectively develop him to the point where they sign under the huge deal. I think this is like that your guy that they have nurtured and he's matured in now is turning to. A guy who. Zola said last night we talked to rejoin us on the show that he when he wants is guided make all star team is you become the defensive player of the year and they want anchored this team. Around Whiteside. Down low let's let's do this now because seventies this all night went. Last night bam out of bio in the first round pick of the Miami Heat join myself Josh Freeman Tommy tiger and our draft show. Just minutes after he was selected a fourteen overall and it's a play a few celebratory after that lets you listen. To what the first round pick him he had to say so here's part of our commerce which. All right hey we got them out of Iowa on the line how about that badly there. No I'm here okay and he joins us on the Ryan fuels and downstairs convenience stores gas line their choice that's the commute first of all congratulations. What does it feel like now to come to this organization a Pat Riley or tools for organization. On the view very that they picked me. You know word whom do you know people. Graham how much are you watch the Miami Heat your days. Vividly talking back to when LeBron and Dwyane Wade response team together. Don't know me. And in the you know they they secretly cute they debut. Edit them knives on Twitter than this on Whiteside Doherty approve the pit he'd like the fact that you're coming down and Carolina guy oh what do you think about the big man. Feeling good about you join the team. On the great you know that you know that is that. But not this you know ginkgo might be mitnick in applause. M. We just ask former heat coach Ron rosty and what they can derive from work out. What did you learn about a team when you visit their facility for leaving just a short period of time. Who follow our lead you know. Iran and and they've been great. They're professional. There's nobody cared you know that that figure you're noted that there was on it and you know I think in my life and death would you gauge your interest in how much they wanted to make you their first draft choice. You know I think what a car's cubic bigger. Would be noted Phil's great interest. We've. You know I'm my name got cause you know by black believes. You know. But obviously played Kentucky you know many people familiar with your game and they have no couple teammates viewers drafted already in the first round but for those who haven't seen. I am not a bio play tell us about what you bring to the tape. Wrong in our complete book maker Peterson you're quoted. Actually be here for the buck like rebel. And run floor.

Draft coverage so really good stuff there Soledad wants some models game after Kevin Garnett and said that during. His high school days his senior year he watched Kevin Garnett on the documentary on him. Before every single home game so there's some dedication there and some inspiration drawing from. A future hall of Famer do wanna read a couple of aztecs misses coming in. There's some centimeter from different texas' he won't win anything with waiters and Johnson did Gordon Hayward and science and minimum. Veteran guys and create some cap space for next year and bring. Someone to playing alongside Hayward. Drug use and Whiteside somebody else's Greg this team was a two month stretch away from being completely overhauled what waiters and Johnson go assign Hayward. Make a trade and push for Paul George and take your shot at Cleveland this year there you go people thinking aggressively. And thinking they should move on from JJ and waiters going to be pressing UCL plays out. We come back we'll talk some more of the key but also. One allege she air and on. Top draft prospect absolutely. Destroying the relationship was one of those teams those picking at the top of the draft all explain why some audio next here on seven iron to detect the.

NBA free agency 1201 AM July 1 live in your home for the MBA in Miami Heat AM seven ID NFL 1043. HD two. The ticket welcome back here to cement insignia Greg likens filling in for Josh Friedman and we've been talking a tonne about the Miami Heat getting a lot of texts and phone calls about what they did in the draft last night by so many other story lines that occurred and develops. As a result of the NBA draft including the Celtics. Really been the headlines so much for all the draft assets they have and then their decision to move from the number one pick down of the number three pick. And they ultimately take Jason Tatum with the third overall pick the Ford out of do. Many thought the Josh Jackson was the third best player in this year's draft soul. There was a back story that developed this week in which we found other Jackson. Wasn't gonna work out for the Celtics and Danny Ainge had this history in which she's never drafted a player that didn't work out. For the Celtics soul listen minutes last Danny Ainge. In the press conferences Celtics held which they're talking about Jason Tatum was asked about. Josh Jackson and this is what he for. Edison never talked with Josh militant organization. To cancel work out on us when we flew out to Sacramento. And they just decided to cancel it has been flu has spread nine makes sense to cross country. So there was there was something that he didn't want to have to play for Celtics. So that's lane said first then this is kind of a question and answer win one of the local media members. And essentially asking a great following question in which you'll hear hear about this. If disaffected. Josh Jackson's draft status in their markets. That count him out entirely after know him to work out no there was thoughts now. Well their thoughts here I was mad flew cross country community give up before o'clock to fly back home we're what you do at Sacramento I don't know how. There's nothing to do that segment. So there you go a little humor at the end but. There was strange situation and I I don't fully blame just Jackson because. These workouts are largely. Based around the agents creating them so whoever he hired. Ariza one minute news creating a schedule on Zamora goal were to be in which seems work out with in which seems you should work out with my. Mayor asked a bad luck and read between the lines here every Danny Ainge said that bed didn't. Eliminating him from being on the board by. Employment I I side would Danny Ainge on this one. And I think it's easier side with the players for the most Barbara I signed with did Danny Ainge and I say that Danny Ainge doesn't necessarily need to be of so Josh Jackson book be upset with. Those who represented judge Jack's. These I don't think. They prospects. Would cancel outright. Worked out unless. The people around him suggest that he do so. What a bad look right. I mean you've got a team we're the third overall pick. And this is a way a look at it mean oftentimes in life. Whether you're changing jobs or you're making a transition. Old saying in a new degrees true resilient don't boring Bridget is. Soldier just Jackson. There's no reason to upset of the NBA teams during this process. Because who knows what can happen if a team decides they're gonna trade up but the Celtics roll he knew. We're gonna draft Jason tenement three. And then we're there were all their future draft picks move up and trade get the fourth overall pick as well and maybe take him there. I don't know that's just the made up scenario. For your budget. The point is this why would you. Ostracize yourself and alienate yourself with one of these teams I give a bad impression during the strap process. Not the in the world they didn't pick him I mean. It is a bit costly for them. In the grand scheme of things was if you look at the projected. Rookie salary cap the third overall pick. Is gonna make four point seven million dollars this year the fourth overall pick makes four point two so we lost half a million dollars potentially because in this. And it's about a half million dollar difference the next few years as well in terms of the rookie salary cap and rookie wage scale. So you're losing money because of it who knows that Boston was gonna go Jason Tait in any way any jet setter lose wheat pit. Even though they're moving from one to three they're gonna get the guys they want and with the third pick he was confident that and I kind of chalked that up to. GM talks president basketball operations talk we hear it in the NBA and the NFL. You get the best player grilled I was the guy who is a top grow bored or they were any of the guys redo we were gonna take it one anyway you know it's just. It's got to like the coach speak for executives. In these different sports organizations I get a don't wanna tip your hand too much. At the same time you wanna protect yourself and you want to sound confident in whatever decision that you made by. Mayor I hear Danny say in how they used to do its first going to. All up to a breezy I was mad why you make us fly across the country you're gonna have worked out. Some common courtesy there that certainly was ignored our didn't talk much about this at all. Well Lamar ball was in the headlines again last night blondes a ball off. I won't talked about it tonight there's too much Missouri time you're gonna Tom De'Angelo join us in a moment. But he must agree on Sunday from eleven it's real talk more about it but it is interesting. Most read about last night. NBA draft subjects in terms of what was trending one's a ball was top Jimmy Butler second. What horrible was there. So of everything that happened last night. At least based on social media reaction more ball. Was the third most tweeted about person. So you did. You know you can disagree with what he does. It didn't bother you can make you wanna Rudy gets his son power reaches react it's your prerogative. Would just Null wounded in this day and age in the car Nash in Haitian over our society or everyone describe it well bar ball has had an error he struck a nerve. Notre bad people are talking about him discussing him tweeting about him in this case. Certainly very interesting the heat. Made their move last night with a fourteenth overall pick they've got a big free agency period coming up boy come back the Palm Beach post Tom Diaz old joined the program to break it all down that's next here on seven night. And it continues to. I was seventeen MLB all star game in Marlins park July 11 sizable. Robert and amber will.

From the only station in south more we can your home run derby and the all star game beat the official radio partner of the 2017. MLB all star game. BM 790 and FM 1043 HD to the ticket. Welcome back here on this Friday night Greg. Likens fill in for Frito right now we're gonna go out to the phone lines in joining us is Tom De'Angelo covers the Miami Heat the Palm Beach policy joins us on the Ryan fuels downstairs to be NiSource gas line they're truly steps beyond convenient he could follow on Twitter at Tom Diaz low 44. Tom always good to talk to us at the door for you. I'm doing I'm doing fine Rachel. So would have on the cubs come into town and and in that holiday her job. Shall that's exactly what I described. Because I I don't say tonight the Josh is that the Marlins game even though tomorrow's parties at the cubs game we'll be right back to write a proposal line. So I'm 80% of and the man than that and about ball park right now I'm sure. That's true right big receiver that no matter what at the popular team from out of town comes in. It's it's a free for all in terms of the those fans are Devoe migrated down here. So inept aid and you know you're popular team McCain. Me being. It. Just a just awaited debate on here unfortunately. That's the case with you on the other hand column I do know that this town is. Passionate about its basketball as treasurer. Last night and he'd select to Kentucky's bam how to buy it with the fourteenth overall pick. Yet is it to dodger press conference this afternoon I know he spoke via conference call of the media last night. What are your takeaways about these kids just off the bat before cinema McCourt. I think number one it was a good shape pick them and they keep our you know this is in the Golden State Warriors where they just so you know they can take it. We could think of why I mean that they can but it's not like they're there roster his six year they'd. They figured they going to lose Willie Reid and and when you look at the skills that. It's very similar in order global energy runs come on the floor. It dumped most of his scoring is you know in Chinese host them this close to the rim. Beastly defense blocked shots and it's exactly what will we did he deal BA. You know it's just all goes as expected to be appealed slighted that robbery well. And you know I I and I knew little about him he wasn't a guy that was on many of our radars and what we were looking at that some of the play as we thought could lend to could we have with the heat. And I'm pretty impressed I mean I I hate he's usually a very high character guy the heat just raved about it but I wasn't there to day I was doing. This stuff somewhat left over from last night now. It teaching would be a frostbite but I side conservative but he said today while I was watching when Pat Riley came in last night at 1 in the morning. Listening to him about what he said in the they have very impressed with the character. And the work ethic kid and she guessed that what they heard from him. Betty just think this is going to be seamless transition for him it. You don't learn the NBA game and you know it's debt debt he should be able to make this transition pretty well. Tom I don't claim to know more then they he'd do Bermuda dues for living blight to play devil's advocate for a moment I do question. Why didn't take a big event still sent provides more contrasts some whites are one of those stretch for resulted TJ we put John Collins a guy who at least. In college prove that he could shoot from the outside doesn't mean bam can develop. The general public is that a fair critique at least at first there. What people look at and say that each league is going one way in the key. You know have these big guys that back kind of opposite that. But the but he but he did not but but he got starting you know it. We saw what they get flat last year they had Luke Babbitt to lose eight. You know that that sort of typical stretch who would stretch foreign. More than three point shooter but he rebounder. Improve his defense that he played quite probably a little better defense than than we expected to. But but but I think. You know what you were saying we're drafted this guy eighty starting at Powell's forward. Not occasionally you know he's going to be. He's going to be a guy who vetoed any 1012 minutes a game of the rookie and then eventually just just it just felt. Unless he really develops the head of the that he could not see and in any other team could see that. He's going to be a backup big man and back up guy that's gonna help these defensively in the preach. So I mean it's silly I I I get a but I do understand too that. You know lead John Collins is what Doug Collins. That it took three college he's more of that to the basket guide probably a little better. I think job. I think damaged I've got a sense of we've got a shot blocker. John Collins is a little bit more skilled and buying property of the better I would guess he has about a midrange jumper right now and had a better chance to develop. Jumper then bam does TJ we could be. Very similar to them Luke Babbitt got certain deftly he gets it scored all levels of three point shooter. It needs he prototypical little stretched well stretch for but I think they're looking to. In their minds. Bad. That that. That specific skills that because I think. The one thing they did that I like is it took a big because that's that most positioned vis the other. The other option weren't you worried Justin Jackson and you know they'll be some three era a tour to recharge. They got a ton of them right now and depending on who comes back but they had a lot of them across the last year. They don't have many sports I mean by each basically didn't think I would like one from Romney on the war on that team Italy Corsica on that team are going to be Carole white. NBM at a vital becomes babbitt's or create you know coaching jobs created Adam comes back we don't know what but that was the position. Tom Diaz who covers the money into the Palm Beach post joins us here on 79 detected. And Tom away from basketball for a moment. Eight these real name is Idrees but they called spam is not a great nickname and for those our audience today news story is the origin of a nickname. And it got them I don't know how many of the the younger and members of the audience ever watched I know of the Flintstones. But I loved ones onto the kid. And he was watching the Flintstones or the one year old that he flipped over he knocked over flipped over coffee table. Which of them went on to the character of bam bam rubble army rebels shot. Who is being damn damn because you lose that you expect. What backed terror who just. While walked around Buckingham over things. And now wants one so big and get this is on the side column bam. Bam bam and went off in the stock. And it it kind of goes to my two into. It does and I think it's a broadcast dream right definitively take extra ball he absolutely absolutely especially basketball you know. Presented for about small player move it in but but really any week he didn't go is a broadcaster has been. Tom looking ahead it's a free agency now that we of the draft in the book so one askew with some new address story lines in a moment but is it pertains the heated up Pat Riley. Had an interesting take you wrote about this for the Palm Beach post and even though the team wanted to make some major upgrades he kind of told everybody can pump the brakes because. Movement in free agency might be limited release according to power rile. He's looking at last year in a lot of people a lot of teens. Gave up contract they're not regretting we've already seen two of them get rid of them that's been less than a year and already. The you know that the all the warm and by the homecoming for the white wood to Atlanta I've done. And the lakers admitting the mistake that everybody colonies sites in the because he's got. And team did you know that is that there was there were a lot of those you know but while staying champ parks with just people that some of these contracts in the sale would know. You give them money that was being torn around. And now can try to get up and those contract and and I thinking he'd believed to have the teams will have learned a lesson and in an orchestra while their money in the opening eat things that we don't want this this this already is not a very deep does not it's not a star studded. Create a C class but. When you think of the the ones that are out there well the top floor rob or afford that you and I look at what kind of a group of six or seven. And for the very easily could return to their tour that we don't shorter recovery go back both state. Chris Paul Dudley group in this pock Chris Paul we would Golden State give Mike a quick lead grew to go. I would I would I would. Yes for sure one of the to come back with if there was one of the two would call what. Probable of them Pennsylvania is more often bored now Kyle Wyle he can go back to Toronto what if it if he could light up there I don't think going they would go back to Utah. And got Paul Millsap and now they're. Now that. Like Howard Gordon may be going back to lift the site. You have one of the pops and create exchange gains and actually talk about it in the league that obviously using the new rules. It gives these players more incentive currently are going to make a lot more money that we exciting. Would it he'd at least initially at least for the first forty years for that to that five year long term contract the dollars are a lot more so so he just got them like. OK you know what to expect every check Miller don't expect Pat Riley. It took turns things around and said how he regretted using the word wail because beacon almost had to put expectations on him and but but there's a chance on me at least we know they gonna try like technical effort Gordon Hayward. And didn't seal up that roster with players whether they resigning do. Beyond. In James Johnson and not been beside him obviously they wouldn't have we'll put on the backs but. But bill bill where they will get somebody but you know in the and they still may get a Mac guy but it's not going to be. Is that there are going to be that I don't I agree with the battle field lot of guys changing teams. Yet who covers the Miami Heat the Palm Beach post who follow on Twitter at Tom diesel 44 joining us here on 79 detected. And you know we get the news over the last day or so that the news salary cap number is going to be a little bit lower than it is today. It'd solve. That's gonna play a role as well writes I mean I know that. A guy like Hayward won't have the same starting value on the open market now it'll be a little less than thirty million dollars as compared to the 31. But it's also going to limit the he'd always other teams have tried to create salary cap space in their effort to sign some of these big name create. I'll have everybody go down might leave millions so it's kind of you don't uniform across the board in the people eat at about 35 million dollars. And then cap space. I'm a little bit but the other way you know ways that he. Then they'll probably stretched got the club contract which means they'll probably release him if they release some basic four million dollars this year in the cap. Instead particulate this six million dollar hit one in one year they can spread out over three years and take two million the next three years so that. That would save four million maybe this might mean you know. It is but one player that it could affect more than any is that was Wayne Ellington and he had the option on his contract and it would cut them. Six million to bring them back when I don't think that if they bring them back they're going to they're going to work out they go to root and not pick up an option but we're on a longer term deal. The less certain for less a dollars. Over the next two years to kind of give themselves some cap space. There to buy. But I mean it it kept everybody back you know it's it's equal across the board is not just the key to lose their. The three million so. In the end. A couple players that might you know it will affect it will affect some players who will affect your ability to. To sign you know more than boy is continued to really give up that money you know this. A little three million laps were. For some teams that that's high percentage of the heat and it's a little bit. But I think he'll be I think they'll still we'll see what would have been going after stuck and affect them what they don't have to. Tom looked you back did last night's action I know that deal entering the night that the big news to be marked helpful slow and so blow up the draft but the biggest news Eds update Jimmy Butler. Big sixteen pick going for the bulls the timberwolves exactly being Chris Dodd in the number 78. And I knew we heard the rumors that the bulls were looking to trade him and the Butler may be on the move but what is your reaction so we see a legitimate star actually. Headed up north now to Minnesota. Well I like the Minnesota building bit surprised that not surprise that lead to one of bird atop typically would probably never would have been traded to Minnesota so that Minnesota had a and dad dad objectives yet to really go after them kind of terribly this former coach. I really thought he got traded it was going to be iPad that we bought. I did to Cleveland never really in the game Cleveland doesn't just have. And then there is no way they could have got what these teams need whether it's bootable start. Butler of the patients were all Georgia those both those teams we're not we're looking for high kicks and they just couldn't pull that off and don't have the space and they don't have the players to. That as well out of teams wanted younger players to get ya know they're there. We don't like it so that makes sense Minnesota a lot of young players like that you know box and those two I. I'm assuming Boston was in his thinking to be and involved in every trade for potential star and whatever reason and they didn't have the balls like that Minnesota. Up for better or Boston didn't. Big increase there offer whatever they added whatever reason so I can't Lakewood Minnesota Billy what's interesting though is just another. Star in ghost of the east and the west and knows what it's already loaded and and you know Paul George got the for the lakers do need but it was Minnesota you get. You'd be getting all these. All these players that some of the anybody whose movies movie is that what that does is that. Great news between movies that are trying to catch you know that it that it gets me is it out ready to team that finished ahead of the heat. Chicago that it would cry but when the tiebreaker in Indiana. Have. We have that you could be you know he just do anything to get a pass from. You know the bulls are just totally blown up really going going out going rebuild about a what. The wing because you're going to be there one year and the particularly if they don't trick I'll do it just a mask I don't know how they can't win with that for yet they have betrayed them. I mean there's two teams that eat probably get a guy up ahead of you know what Kyle Lowry what happened at Toronto with a back on while we. They could actually move and I think you know it can actually. Pat themselves he kissed. You know the knicks couldn't get the Icrc and Gordon Hayward and Jimmie Johnson I mean significantly huge jump back conference because that the conference is not getting any stronger. Yeah now an argument in Atlanta as also at Atlanta and he's exactly right Abbie if they sound good Haywood Jimmy Johnson. My feeling is they are in competition for the receipt with Washington watch. And I would I would put Boston Cleveland still a lot of you know out of there arranged. But right up to them with what Washington Milwaukee Miami via that probably in that billion Backstreet teams battling the plea for your people but I. An and that would be that would be great first step. On the path that try to get back in the top cop. It's certainly would Tom Diaz of covers the heat for the Palm Beach post joining us here on 790. And get us another storyline besides that the names being more like Jimmy Butler and every to a back to distract is the -- point guard because 500. Taking the top send it in these point guards specifically or the fits with their teams it that you like the most. I think Sacramento did tonight got a bigger Justin Jackson later on in the other pocket you're just because they had a chance to sit here ought to bulk up. Backcourt they treated to the ball was still out there. But that you helpful. Paul is at that that that's a great he gets to go to to a great situation now. The question is has beaten them seven Benson and stay healthy if they do they have something so but we don't know you know that it would they're talking about as Big Three of them the I haven't had called them and they really want to display you'll want to do this on court. Burn in an NBA game in the movie and we actually step sons off because he's so mean he had just they're such hard luck with the injuries. Unlike those two great. I don't know if this is doing I mean I think it was a little high for him. And that the Carolina. I think they probably would have been better off than I normally mom could approached our New York. You know they are leaving. Big market a market was gone. But I know I I I really like I'd like with Sacramento doing which probably Sacramento. In the Carter. It's hard to continue that because the good guys not just clamoring to go to Sacramento. If you're wealthy guys stay healthy finally you know these guys have been thinking of what used. Could this finally might pay off but they still have a lot of question marks over it and not do it for you I think I think they got a guy they need to get. But the those two like I like that get the best well. I think it's going to be fascinating to see you know is always so much. You know we're rouge feel so confident in somebody's players we we break down and we feel optimistic entering the draft it's going to be fun to see over the next few years. Develops into the stone pillars of these teams are open for. It like music and hedonism keyword few years because they're all they're all nineteen year old kid. And it's gonna take time and in their gonna take 23 years I have been you know we didn't get to some news in this. So it did there's going to be a lot of patience. Is that there you have to use a lot of patience with a lot of these kids because because you know that describe and one of them. I have had a long way to go before they reached pitchers they're being mature. Certainly that's the case and Tomlin quickly what what's next and we're gonna have free agency in about a week in the summer leagues around the corner in the the FB offseason I know. But we we didn't devote much time after the warriors wrapped up when he championship and we still a lot of action in the NBA record. It's a bottle full Monty are really beginning before wind down a bit to actually get its August and August the league virtually shuts down. But down but these these next this this next month these weeks would next week you know ripping up for free agency routinely getting near summer league rosters together. And then and then two weeks to real the that would even though we kept that in the previous with Italy. It decrease week of the year when would create shocked at midnight next Friday. I mean you have that going on in that start that burden here about a year a full week of just be incredible you know. It gets one rumor report after the other guys playing all countries meeting in an extra sign the contract and the new start. And then teams who kind of build up there rot with the initial wave created to the star only about. That have been signed initially were the existence are coming up Iraq and with the the next kind of level guys in certain that it. Start to quiet down and you then finally united but it I look at it really is. It's it's about you get about a mile and half where who have a month or so a month and apple quiet. It's it's really you know almost it's a quick turn out more upbeat because. We currently have in September come rolls around and we're gonna be that bow to weeks or three weeks away from the the opening of training camp. Right now it's amazing and the MBA had been that he did Donna nice domino makes things easier for you Tom and depth.
