Paul George to the Lakers is not guaranteed.

Though George has expressed interest to play for his hometown Lakers on several occasions, The New York Times reports George would strongly consider a two-year deal with the Thunder that includes a player option after the first year.

More than one rival team has suggested to me that they expect George to strongly consider a two-year deal with the Thunder at $30.3 million next season and $32.7 million in 2019-20 that includes a player option to return to free agency next summer, Marc Stein of The Times said in his weekly newsletter.

Young is an excellent prospect in his own right, but there’s significantly more risk associated with him due to his poor defense than there is with Doncic. The 2019 pick will be a solid asset for the Hawks, to be sure, as well. Still, next year’s draft class looks to be significantly weaker than this one, especially outside of the top five.

Dallas will now go about building Doncic into its rotation. His fit next to Dennis Smith Jr. shouldn’t be a concern. The 19-year-old has excelled playing next to another ball handler in the past with the Slovenian national team and Real Madrid.

The Mavericks found some nice value in the second round with Jalen Brunson and Ray Spalding, in particular, but their 2018 draft night will be defined by the decision to move up and snag the best player on the board.

Obviously, I’m not going to go out there if I don’t feel 100 percent, said Ray, a first-time All-Star in 2017.

There is a constant line of communication between me and Torey (manager Lovullo). He was open with me. He wanted me to make another rehab start. I made it clear that I felt like I was ready. It felt good to be back on the mound and to be good to put up some zeroes for this team and help us win.

Both Arizona and St. Louis enter the series after being swept, the Diamondbacks losing three to NL West rival San Francisco and the Cardinals dropping three to NL East-leading Atlanta.

That was only a slight hiccup for the Diamondbacks, whose 19 victories in Cheap Jerseys Wholesale June tied for the most in the majors. They led the majors with 11 triples and were second in runs in Cheap Jerseys USA Soccer the month. Starting pitchers had 15 victories, also the most in the majors, capped by wins Cheap Jerseys UK by Ray and Zack Greinke in the final two games of a four-game series in Miami early last week.

Last year, the Los Angeles Chargers played tight ends for a combined 1,475 snaps.

With Antonio Gates on the open market and Hunter Henry having suffered an ACL injury, that depth chart has been decimated. The only healthy tight end to return to the team this year is Sean Culkin, who played 11 snaps in 2017.

Culkin, an undrafted free agent who appeared in just one game last year, isn’t the answer. Braedon Bowman, who has been on four teams in his two years in the NFL, isn’t the answer. Undrafted free agents, considering the late-blooming nature of the position, aren’t the answer. That leaves Virgil Green and only Virgil Green to shoulder the load.

At the line of scrimmage, the Rams might have the league’s most drastic story of haves and have nots.

Does Duke have the locker room leadership to steer this program to its potential? That question affected our confidence in this team’s previous standing.

Earlier this month, it seemed as if John Calipari had missed the mark in recruiting, a foreign concept for Kentucky fans during his tenure. And then — Wait a minute! — that’s Calipari’s music! That’s Calipari’s music! On April 10, Calipari tweeted, No one truly knows what we are doing until it’s done. Finished yet? after locking up commitments from five-star talents E.J. Montgomery and Ashton Hagans, a likely candidate to reclassify from the 2019 class.

The moves elevated a stacked class that already had Keldon Johnson and Immanuel Quickley to the No. 2 spot in ESPN’s recruiting rankings, one spot behind Duke. But Calipari’s team might still grow. Reports suggest 2019 standout Tyrese Maxey is considering the Wildcats and reclassification. A Cheap Denver Broncos Jerseys grad transfer could come aboard. And the three players Cheap Dri Fit Jerseys who’ve entered the draft without hiring agents — Wenyen Gabriel, PJ Washington and Jarred Vanderbilt — could announce their returns to Lexington, too.

Anthony Rendon and Stephen Strasburg helped lead the Nationals to an 8-4 win against the Cubs

Blue Jays ace Marcus Stroman turned in one of his best starts of the season in a 4-0 win against the Orioles. Stroman tossed 7 2/3 scoreless innings while giving up just five hits and striking out eight batters. He is now 8-4 with a 3.41 ERA this season.

Anthony Rendon and Stephen Strasburg helped lead the Cheap Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Nationals to an 8-4 win against the Cubs. Rendon went 3 for 3 with two runs scored and a solo home run, raising his season average to .299. Strasburg allowed just three runs (two earned) in seven innings while striking out 13 batters. He is now 9-2 on the season.

Rick Porcello took another step back from the Cy Young-winning form he displayed last season by allowing four runs in six innings in a 4-1 loss against the Twins. Porcello is now 4-10 with an ugly 5.06 ERA this season. He became the first Red Sox starter with 10 losses by July 1 since Danny McFayden in 1932.

No one ever imagined Manti Te’o and “underrated” ever being in the same sentence, but this was an underrated signing, after Te’o missed most of last season in San Diego with a torn Achilles. A.J. Klein came over from the Panthers and, even with Te’o Cheap Youth Jerseys there, will play a bigger role than he did in Carolina.

Meanwhile, a player who missed all of last season with a torn ACL, outside linebacker Hau’oli Kikaha, could solve their pass-rusher dilemma. However, because he’s torn that ligament three times, the Saints haven’t counted on him to be that player … yet.

In just his second NBA season, Martin averaged 14.9 points a game and helped the Nets finish atop the Eastern Conference, making a trip to the NBA Finals. His playoff experience with both New Jersey and Denver should make him a valuable crunch time performer in Big3 play.

Tampa Bay may not be known just for pitching and defense anymore.

He’s now healthy and gone back to the routine that worked with the Rockies. He’s leading the league in hits with 104 and has 17 home runs.

“I think he’s the player we thought he could be,” Longoria said.

The offense looks poised to improve even more now that Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys catcher Wilson Ramos has returned and outfielder Colby Rasmus is not far behind. They will bolster what Dickerson already calls a one-through-nine attack that also consists of Steven Souza Jr. and Tim Beckham.

“We feed off of one another,” Dickerson said. “When someone hits a home run, we celebrate it. It can be anybody, any night, and that’s what’s cool about it.”

If they keep it up, Tampa Bay may not be known just for pitching and defense anymore.

Now that Russell Westbrook, James Harden and Kevin Durant play for three different teams, it isn’t inconceivable for the trio to finish in the top three in MVP voting sometime in the future. It’s hard to believe that the Thunder were unable to keep them together long enough to win a title. Oklahoma City has had to watch to Harden and Durant become the faces of two of the top contenders in the Western Conference as the Thunder have fully hitched their wagon to Westbrook, and now, Paul George.

Tomlin reacted with a shrug: “I’m not getting into any of that attendance, excused or unexcused.”

He knows the team will make a good faith effort to get Bell signed for the long term by the July 15 deadline. If not, Bell will show up at some point during training camp and play under his $12 million-plus franchise tender. Brown, who is the NFL’s Cheap Youth Football Jerseys highest-paid receiver, has advised his teammate to “Trust the Rooneys. They’re always honest and Cheap Youth Football Jerseysstraightforward. They do right by their players.”

Thomas ranked in the 92.4 percentile with an average of 1.22 points per spot-up possession last season

Iverson always said that when he stepped on a basketball court and knew he wasn’t the best player in the world, he didn’t want to play any more. That’s how he knew when it was time to retire. He said his ego, his pride and his belief in his talent wouldn’t allow him to continue playing.

When asked if playing in the Big3 brought back any memories from his NBA career, Iverson brought up the frustrations of that feeling, of knowing that Cheap Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping he isn’t the best player in the world.

Thomas ranked in the 92.4 percentile with an average of 1.22 points per spot-up possession last season, and it made up 13.8 percent of his offense in total. Hayward was almost as accurate in those situations, ranking in the 84.1 percentile with 1.14 points per spot-up possession.

With Thomas leading the league in points scored off drives last season, having Hayward spot-up on the perimeter while Al Horford either cuts to the basket or makes himself available for a jump shot outside of the paint would obviously force defenses to make incredibly tough decisions in the half court.

Simply running Hayward off the 3-point line isn’t an option for the defense, either. If defenders are overly aggressive with their closeouts, he can put the ball on the floor and make plays for himself and others off the dribble. Almost a quarter of his offense came at the rim last season, where he made 69.2 percent of his attempts.

Why he’s here: Father Time is undefeated, as the old saying goes, and he seems to finally be catching up to Pujols. While he’s still a smart, dangerous hitter at times, Pujols has seen his overall numbers plummet this year to career lows virtually Cheap Youth Basketball Jerseys across the board. And he still has four years left on his contract. Yeesh.

what’s so smart about how the NFL is handling this?

In 2017, in a country continuing its gradual turn toward legalizing weed, and in a league with debilitating, often chronic pain at its foundation, why are players still getting Cheap Soccer Jerseys Free Shipping kicked out for an entire year? Or indefinitely? Or, in practical terms, forever?

By now, we should be way past the “they have almost all year to use without penalty” argument. And the “the drug test is an IQ test” argument. And the “he deserves a year just for being so dumb” argument.

Because, honestly, what’s so smart about how the NFL is handling this?

Some within the NFL, even some high up the food chain, have been asking for a while if and how the marijuana policy should be tweaked, fixed or overhauled.

What’s going on this offseason, though, should spur them to start asking different questions. And it should get the people they work for — the owners and commissioner Roger Goodell — to ask them, too.

Above and beyond the concerns about Peterson’s age (32) and recent injury history is the fact that he’s never played in an offense that uses backs the way the Saints do, and the Saints have never used a back the way Peterson has been used. In hooking up this season, both sides decided, “Yeah, so what?”

The adventure will be meshing what Peterson does best with Mark Ingram, who keeps proving how valuable an all-around back he is when healthy. Peterson has had two 40-reception seasons in his career; Ingram has had two in the last two seasons, including 2015, when he tore his rotator cuff and missed the final month.

For extra spice, they caught fast, versatile rookie Alvin Kamara when he slid to the third round; many predictions had him as one of the elite backs in the Cheap Team Jerseys draft. Those who miss the McAllisters, Bushes and Pierre Thomas of olden days will love Kamara.

there are a lot of shortstops that deserve more attention than they get

Red Sox (47-35) at Rangers (40-42) 8:05 p.m. ET — What will Mookie do for an encore? Betts and the red-hot Sox, who have won four straight and six of seven, head to Arlington Cheap Soccer Jerseys For Sale to take on the Rangers, who probably can’t catch the Astros (56-27) in the AL West but can start to position themselves for an AL wild-card spot. Martin Perez (4-6, 4.70 ERA) gets the ball for the Rangers while Boston sends struggling Rick Porcello (4-10, 5.06) to the mound.

Why he’s here: The Rays moved Dickerson to the leadoff spot this year, and he’s responded with an outstanding first half of the season. His .371 OBP is a career-best, and way, way above what he produced last year (.293), his first with the Rays.

Why he’s here: Ramirez signed an extension this spring (options through 2023) and he’s spent the first couple months showing he’s ready to be a long-term anchor for Cleveland’s franchise.

He’s already tied his career best in RBIs (49) and his 12 home runs, combined with 11 stolen bases, have made him a dynamic threat in the middle of the Arizona order behind sluggers Paul Goldschmidt and Jake Lamb. A .254/.294/.376 slasher entering 2016, Owings owns a line of .297/.332/.507 in 2017.

As previously stated, there are a lot of shortstops that deserve more attention than they get, but this list was held to five. Here are a few guys who just missed the cut:

Andrelton Simmons, Angels: Was always a wizard with the glove, but he’s developed into a terrific hitter with the Angels, especially since Mike Trout got hurt.

Tim Beckham, Rays: Trails only Segura at shortstop with a .381 BABIP. He needs to strike out less.

Orlando Arcia, Brewers: The 22-year-old sophomore is Cheap Team Basketball Jerseys holding down the fort for a Brewers ball club exceeding expectations across the board.

Aaron Judge continues to be as good as advertised in win vs. White Sox

Those expecting Aaron Judge to slow down this season may be in for a long wait because the young Yankees slugger was at it again during Wednesday’s 12-3 win against the White Sox.

Judge, a virtual lock for Rookie of the Year awards, launched his 27th home run of the year in the sixth inning. Judge’s power has been unmatched this season, as he also has 62 RBIs.

With the All-Star break looming, Judge is leading or tied for all three Triple Crown categories in the AL. His .333 average is surprising considering his still high strikeout rate (93 in 267 at-bats), but he’s walking a lot (53), and making great contact when he sees pitches he likes.

Cordero will be one of the more well-known and longest tenured players on this list. Making the All-Star game as a shortstop was a relatively high bar to clear (especially at this time in the National League). Cordero made his only ASG appearance in a 14-year career in 1994. Ozzie Smith and Barry Larkin were the other players at this position to make the team.

Cordero finished the first half with the highest batting average among NL shortstops (.306). In fact, he was likely having the best offensive season at that position. Cordero was hitting .306/.375/.519 with 13 HR, 48 RBIs, and 13 SB. He was one of five Expos players to represent the NL. This would be the best offensive season of Cordero’s career, but it’s worth noting that he did put together a few more solid seasons at the plate following this.

If we were going strictly by WAR, then Aledmys Diaz Cheap Soccer Jerseys would be the selection here. He made his first and only ASG appearance last season. However, there’s still plenty Cheap Team Baseball Jerseys of time left in his career for Diaz to overtake Cordero.
