The trade deadline created a lot of movement in the 2018 NBA draft. Let’s look at where the top prospects — Trae Young, Luka Doncic, Deandre Ayton, Mohamed Bamba and Marvin Bagley III — might land.
Unlike other countries where players and agents deal with clubs, the NBL will directly contract the players, NBL owner and executive chairman Larry Kestelman said in a release provided exclusively to ESPN. We will make sure the players get the development they need as part of the program with our clubs, giving them the best chance of success.
The NBL provides strong visibility back to the U.S. Our league is closest to the NBA in terms of style of play and game day presentation. We will work to build a program to provide the right access to NBA teams and scouts alike.
The populist commentator was referring to James’ and Kevin Durant’s newest Uninterrupted video with Cari Champion, in which the two NBA superstars and ESPN anchor agree that Trump’s comments are often laughable and scary. Said Ingraham:
I’m numb to this commentary. Must they run their mouths like that? Unfortunately, a lot of kids and some adults take these ignorant comments seriously. Look, there might be a cautionary lesson in LeBron for kids. This is what happens when you attempt to leave high school a year early to join the NBA. And it’s always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball. Oh and LeBron and Kevin? You’re great players but no one voted for you. Millions elected Trump to be their coach. So keep the political commentary to yourself. Or as someone once said, shut up and dribble.
He understands that I’m young and I’m learning, Mitchell says. He’s stern when he needs to be, but it’s also like a light mood. It’s always joyful, always happy.
If Fitzpatrick goes to a team like Chicago it would be as a cornerback. It’s not exactly a stretch for him since he often played in the slot in nickel coverage.
Few players in this draft have as much raw potential and upside than Edmunds, who doesn’t turn 20 until May. Edmunds excels when he makes a read, quickly reacts, and uses his athleticism to shut down a play.
Oakland has badly needed a player who can captain the defense, and Smith can be that guy. Georgia players rallied around the instinctive linebacker, and Raiders players would too.
James may be listed as a safety, but he’s more of a hybrid safety/linebacker. He has the ability to drop in coverage but the size to be an effective tackler and blitzer.
