NBA – Pistons draft Ivey at No. 5 and acquire No. 13 pick Duren
The Detroit Pistons have selected Purdue’s Jaden Ivey with the No. 5 overall pick in the NBA draft. Detroit’s rebuilding plan should get a boost with the addition of the dynamic player. The 6-foot-4, 195-pound Ivey can play point or shooting guard. The busy team acquired Memphis center Jalen Duren, who was drafted No. 13 overall by Charlotte and traded to New York. Detroit also added Knicks guard Kemba Walker in exchange for a 2025 first-round pick it acquired the previous day. The Pistons added Italian guard Gabriele Procida, who shot 38.3% on 3-pointers for Bologna.

NBA – Chicago Bulls take Arizona guard Dalen Terry at No. 18
The Chicago Bulls drafted Arizona guard Dalen Terry with the No. 18 pick, adding size and versatility in the backcourt as they try to take another step after making a big jump to reach the playoffs for the first time in five years. The 6-foot-7, 195-pound Terry averaged 8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.9 assists, and 1.2 steals as a sophomore in coach Tommy Lloyd’s first season. Owning a 7-foot wingspan, he can guard multiple spots. And on offense, he can play on or off the ball. Chicago did not have a second-round pick as it was forfeited for a tampering violation.

NBA – Magic take Banchero 1st, Holmgren, Smith follow in NBA draft

Banchero, wearing a purple suit full of bling, received a loud ovation inside Barclays Center, where Duke lost in the ACC Tournament final.   Notre Dame freshman Guard Blake Wesley went 25th overall to San Antonio.  Michigan had forward Caleb Houston go to Orlando at 32nd overall, his Wolverine teammated Moussa Diabate was taken 43rd overall to the LA Clippers.  Michigan State guard Max Christie was taken by the Lakers with the 35th overall pick.

Olympics – Salt Lake City Winter Olympics bid more likely for 2034
Recent meetings with the IOC have led U.S. officials to believe all signs point toward Salt Lake City bidding for the 2034 Winter Olympics, though they say Utah’s capital will be ready if asked to host the 2030 Games, too. U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee chair Susanne Lyons said she views Salt Lake City as the leading candidate for the 2034 Olympics, and that the complexities of hosting 2030 only two years after the Summer Games in Los Angeles make it a less-likely scenario.

Horse Racing – NYRA suspends Baffert 1 year; eligible to return in January
The New York Racing Association suspended trainer Bob Baffert for one year Thursday for repeated medication violations. A panel credited Baffert for time served from an initial suspension that makes the two-time Triple Crown-winning trainer eligible to saddle horses in New York again by late January. The ban is shorter than the two-year suspension Churchill Downs handed Baffert after Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit tested positive for a substance that is not allowed on race day. Baffert’s camp asked for a stay of the NYRA suspension that was immediately denied.

NFL – Tony Siragusa, who helped Ravens win Super Bowl, dies at 55
Tony Siragusa, the charismatic defensive tackle who helped lead a stout Baltimore defense to a Super Bowl title, died Wednesday. He was 55.

The man known as “the Goose" played seven seasons with the Indianapolis Colts and five with the Ravens.

Siragusa was popular with fans because of his fun-loving personality, which also helped him transition to broadcasting after his playing career.

Golf – PGA/LIV – PGA Tour in ‘arms race’ of dollars and leaning on loyalty

Monahan offers a streamlined schedule for top players that goes from January to August. Also planned are three international events during the fall for only the top performers. He spoke just as LIV Golf officially announced Brooks Koepka was the latest to sign.

Three members of the grounds crew were able to coax the critter into exiting the field through the bullpen gate. The squirrel brought the home team good luck as the Pirates went on to score three runs in the inning to break a scoreless tie.

NBA – Orlando still evaluating all options with No. 1 draft pick
College basketball season ended almost three months ago, the NBA draft lottery was more than a month ago and the draft itself is later this week. Seems like the process should be winding down. Orlando Magic President Jeff Weltman sees it differently. He says the real work is just getting started. The Magic haven’t decided yet what they’ll do on Thursday night when the draft rolls around and they have the No. 1 pick. Other teams have called to gauge what the asking price would be if they want to trade for that selection.

NBA – Magic-Rockets, Pistons-Blazers to open Vegas summer league
NBA Summer League will start with a little Midnight Madness feel, at least in some of the country. And if the Orlando Magic keep the No. 1 draft pick, then that player won’t wait long for his summer debut.

That game will be followed by a midnight Eastern tip-off between Portland and Detroit. Those two matchups are the only ones on the Day 1 schedule. All teams play five games in Vegas.

WNBA – Wife of WNBA’s Griner tells AP scheduled call never happened
WNBA star Brittney Griner tried to call her wife nearly a dozen times through the American embassy in Russia on the couple’s fourth anniversary Saturday, but they never connected since the phone line at the embassy was not staffed. That’s according to Cherelle Griner, who tells the Associated Press that the couple has not spoken by phone in the four months since Griner’s arrest in Russia on drug-related charges. That was to have changed Saturday, when a long-awaited call was to have finally taken place. But the day came and went without any contact, leaving an anguished Cherelle Griner to wonder what went wrong.

Colorado Avalanche at Tampa Bay Lightning, 8:00 p.m.       (COL Leads 2-0)

NHL – Lightning may be running out of gas vs fresher Avalanche
It’s no secret Tampa Bay has played more hockey over the past two years than any other team in the NHL. That may finally be taking a toll on the two-time defending champs against the Colorado Avalanche, who took a much shorter route to the Stanley Cup Final. The Avalanche now lead the best-of-seven series 2-0 going into Game 3 Monday at Tampa Bay. The Lightning have played 67 postseason games since Aug. 1, 2020. That is the most by one team over the span of three playoffs. Players and coach Jon Cooper refuse to use that as an excuse.

Golf – US Open – Fitzpatrick a winner again at Brookline as US Open champion

He seized control with a two-shot swing on the 15th and closed it out with a shot onto the green from a fairway bunker. Fitzpatrick won the U.S. Amateur at Brookline in 2013.
