Shannon Sharpe and Skip Bayless discuss DeAndre Jordan's future and the possible trade rumors. Shannon makes a case for DJ and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

- Look, Tristan's a nice little p-- He young, and plus his BM, right-- Joy, you know you don't separate people like that, Joy. He's about to be a dad, [INAUDIBLE] that can't travel to Cleveland to LA. Get them close together, Skip.

- By the way, a little bird told you yesterday, I understand-- because you said it here on the air-- that wait a sec, the Cavs do have interest in DeAndre Jordan, right?

- Yeah, they have always had interest.

- And then DeAndre definitely has--

- Has interest in them.

- Yes.

- Of course.

- OK, so now it's definitely going to come down to the Brooklyn draft.

- We're not giving you that for no DeAndre Jordan. The guy can leave at the end of the year. Now, if he had two or three years in his contract, we might consider it. But I tell you what we will do. We have a first round pick this year for the first time in a long time. We let you have it. I'll tell you what-- you know what, Skip? This is what we'll do for you, 'cause we like you, Jerry West. And I have the utmost respect for you because I know you can build a team. We'll give you Isaiah.

- [SNIFFS] That's what-- that's what Jerry West would do. He would a sniff at.

- We'll give you Isaiah for DeAndre. And I tell you what, we'll give you Channing Frye and Tristan for Lou Williams. Salaries match up-- I mean, come on, Skip.

- Channing Frye--

- Yeah!

- --for Lou Williams, who should be an all-star?

- He should be.

- And just has lightened up the whole league?

- We need that to light up for the Cavaliers.

- Oh, so you want Jerry West to be everybody's fool and then after--

- He done suckered everybody. Look, he--

- He suckers everybody. You better be careful dealing with him.

- He suckered Charlotte. He suckered Memphis. And then he turns right around to go work for Memphis after he done swindled them out of the-- what he swindled them out of.

- He did.

- So, Skip--

- Good point.

- Now, you know if we get DeAndre and can keep Kevin Love, you know what's gonna happen. It's gonna be seven games between the Warriors and the Cavs. And I'll put my money on Bron. And seven-- game seven, I already-- I got it.

- So help me out here.

- Yes

- How does DeAndre Jordan change the balance of power between Cleveland and Golden State? That's what I don't get.

- Because we need a big-- we need a big rent. We're small, Skip. We're small.

- So are they. Less and less they play Zaza Pa-Cheap-Shot. They don't even play defense.

- They don't got-- no, no, no, no, no, no. No, I'm talking about--

- They just play small.

- No, I'm talking about, oh, I'm talking about the Celtics. If we get DeAndre--

- Oh, you're just worried about the Celtics, which You should be.

- Yeah, we worried about them right now, until we make this power move. And then we're going to roll through them like-- like a bottle of prune juice through a baby, Joy. That's how we 'bout to go through the Celtics when we get DeAndre.

- I would agree with you. That would give you a better chance of getting past the number one defensive team.

- First of all, even if we don't, I still like our chances.

- Yep.

- I love our chances. There's a 90% chance if we stand pat. Now, if we get DeAndre and Lou Williams, it's over-- over.

- Over how?

- O-V-A, over for them suckers.

- Wait, wait, you mean Golden State is O-V-A?

- It's over for-- it's over for the Celtics and we coming for Golden State.

- But you're afraid to go O-V-A for Golden State, aren't you?

- It'll be O-V-E-R.

- Yeah.

- OK.

- Yeah. But it will be over in five--

- No, sir.

- --like it was last year--

- No, sir.

- --for Golden State--

- No, sir. If we get-- Hold on. If we get Lou Williams and DeAndre Jordan--

- How are you going to get them? You don't have anything to trade for them.

- Yes, we do.

- Unless you give up the Brooklyn--

- No, we got-- hold on. We got Isaiah. We got our--

- Nobody wants Isaiah. He's damaged goods. Everybody knows it.

- They want him off the books. He'll be off the books next year. He only making $6 million. We done paid half of it, so you only owe him $3 million.

- So just another addition--

- Skip, the man's worth $40 billion. He just got $35 million off his payroll. What's $6 million to him?

- No, he doesn't care about that.

- OK, then--

- He just wants to win.

- OK, that's what I'm trying-- Isaiah can help you win.

- I mean, Ron might put a call in to Adam Silver, but I have a feeling DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams will be going to the highest bidder, considering the situation. Plus, Tristan-- Tristan--

- Thompson.

- --Thompson has two more years left on his deal at $16.4 million.

- That's OK. They love it. That's half of Blake. You get a young guy--

- I don't know if that--

- Joy, stop trying to talk us out of it.

- I'm just trying to be realistic. I'm trying to be the voice of reason around here.

- Give us Whiteside. Give us Whiteside.

- He don't-- he don't have anything to do with this.

- He had a big game last night. Here they come.

- I can tell you one thing, though. These new-- these free agents are going to have a lot more trade clauses in their contracts.

- Yeah, I was surprised he didn't have a no-trade.

- First of all, there's two guys that have that-- Dirk Nowitzki and the king. Now, the king has had-- now, you--

- I don't think Dirk has it any more, I think it went away.

- I mean-- I mean, he ain't going nowhere, I mean, what, 20-plus years, 21 years.

- But if you're a big time free agent moving forward--

- They gonna give it to you, unless you Steph Curry or Kaydee or something.

- I don't know about that.

- Blake, welcome to Detroit.

- Yep.
