In this episode, Shamit Dua of Boot Crewe Media joins the show and we do a substantial deep dive into 2022 NBA Free Agency and the offseason. We start with the Rudy Gobert trade. Why we're skeptical for Minnesota, and why it's a great deal for Utah.

Then, the Kyrie-for-Russell Westbrook report came from Chris Haynes while recording, so we dove deep into that, explaining why this is the kind of deal that just kind of makes sense for everyone involved given the weird stages of both organizations. Then, we move to the Malcolm Brogdon trade.

Then, we go, in order: Portland's free agency moves, the Knicks signing Brunson and Mitchell Robinson, the 76ers having a normal offseason!, Milwaukee's smart moves, the Tyus Jones deal, Golden State's moves, the Raptors bringing back Chris Boucher and Thad Young, the Lakers bringing in JTA, Walker and Brown, the weird Mo Bamba re-signing in Orlando, Marvin Bagley's deal in Detroit, DORT's extension versus Jae'Sean Tate's extension, Malik Monk, Bruce Brown, Ricky Rubio.

Finally, we then dive into the rampant Kevin Durant speculation portion of the episode.
