Friedo is joined by Greg Likens and the guys open the show talking about the big news out of the NBA that broke just before they hit the air, with the Lakers trading away D’Angelo Russell and Timofey Mozgov to the Nets for Brook Lopez and the 27th pick in the draft. With the Lakers potentially clearing enough cap space for 2 max contracts, it leaves us wondering if they’re making a play for Lebron and Paul George after next season. We invite Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald on the program to talk about this crazy offseason in the NBA and how it could affect the Heat. Barry also gets into the contract situation between Jarvis Landry and the Dolphins. Friedo and Greg brought on Nick Friedell of ESPN 1000 in Chicago to talk about Dwyane Wade opting in for the final year of his 2-year deal, and what the future of the Bulls could look like with the possibility of Jimmy Butler not being there. We get into the Cavaliers letting go of GM David Griffin and dealing with an over bearing owner in Dan Gilbert.
