What do you think? Yeah, so this is I think the Raptors air probably acting out of a little bit of desperation here. I don't You know, they're they're struggling a little bit compared toa what they probably thought they were gonna be. I don't think Andre Drummond a bad player by any means. He puts up amazing statistics. Um, it kind of depends on what you believe in terms of what it's gonna take to get him also right. There's always context to these. If you really only have to give up a second round pick which was reported a couple of weeks ago, I saw then, you know, you know, why not? Um, it's not gonna turn him into a title contender, though. Yeah, Yeah, that's that's the part that kind of throws me off here about. But Andre Drummond, I mean, yeah, you know, they can upgrade the big spot, but I mean, I think I think the Raptors Aaron full rebuild, so it feels like they're terrified of committed to the rebuilding. So they're like, Let's not rebuild. Let's see if we could do something here and like, let's go get from And it was like I don't see how that particularly helps. Well, my and and And he's on an expiring contracts. So, like you're gonna trade for him, and then you have the possibility of losing him. And I think you're right. I think they did. You know, they went, won their championship and, you know, crazily. Then they lose their star player, and they've done a good job weathering the storm. You know, they've hit on vanvleet and they've hit on some young guys. But I think it's maybe time for them to go into a little bit of a mini rebuild. Not not the process, not the Philadelphia 76 build. But what's wrong with a couple of years? You know, maybe you trade Pascal siac, Um, and just keep some of the, you know, bouches come around, then delete some of these guys and build back up around those guys. Yeah, I mean, and I mean a little bit of a hot take care, But like, I mean, you could go kind of Allah thunder and just go straight up like fragile fleets, an all time high, like go flip him like you really believe he's like the guy for the next five years that you're gonna need, like, go flip. You know everyone that you can Powell like whoever else on DSI what you can get because I do feel like they're interestingly in this interesting spot where if they flipped all the interesting people on the roster and got themselves to a good, strong lottery pick, they might be in a really, really crazy position and a very strong team in five years, whereas if they kind of half ass it, they might get stuck in the like, Okay, like, now you're building around Fred Van Fleet and like, and you go and get X y and Z care players in Boucher and like, you're like, Okay, like all of a sudden, your background, the middle again like, um but it might. They have this really weird collection of assets that I think on an individual basis could trade pretty well. But as a collection, they're just not working And, like, maybe it is time to go deep, clean, re full rebuild that that's a great point because they could end up in that middle of the pack where you it's hard to get out of that and you're right. They have a lot of really good collection of individual guys they could get really good returns for. Yeah, yeah, slight tangent. But what do you What do you think of the thunder's collection of assets, like, Do you think they could immediately turn that into something crazy? It's It's very interesting, right? Because that's you have to trust the way they've drafted. Um, and so they have all these pics. There's no way they use all those picks like eventually. I'm interested to see how this happens over the next two years. Do they draft them all? Do they flip those for a star? Um, but I'm not mad at for how they've done it. And they're, you know, they've still been somewhat successful this year. It's not like they're just awful. So I really like what the thunder have done. I think I think they've done a good job, and they will be fascinating over the next five years With what, like 17 1st round pick. That's crazy. Yeah, it will be interesting. All right. Hit that
