In this episode, Cole Zwicker joins Sam Vecenie and chats about the Kawhi Leonard trade. Do we like the risk for the Raptors now that we're a little bit of a ways out from the decision? Do we like the Spurs still just going in and competing?

In this episode, Cole Zwicker and I run through all of free agency's Day 1 transactions outside of LeBron James, chatting about Paul George, where Oklahoma City goes from here, Chris Paul and Trevor Ariza, The Denver moves, Ersan Ilyasova and Doug McDermott, why we like what Brooklyn is doing, and can't really understand Portland.
In this episode, Cole Zwicker joins the podcast to chat about -- what else? -- LeBron James' decision to go to the Lakers in free agency. What does the structure of his contract mean? Where do the Lakers go from here? How does the team go about building its roster? How do the young pieces fit? Do they make a move for Kawhi Leonard? How does this affect Julius Randle?
All that, in addition to some discussion on how this affects the Cavaliers going forward, and what road they should go down to recover.
