Eight months after helping Slovenia to its first European Championship, Luka Doncic added a Euroleague title to his ever-growing mantel, which now also includes the Euroleague MVP and Euroleague Final Four MVP awards.

The 19-year-old, who is currently slated as the No. 2 prospect on the ESPN Top 100, scored 15 points on 8 field goal attempts, with 4 assists and 3 rebounds in 29 minutes in a tense and tactical championship game in which Real Danny Ainge Jersey Madrid defeated defending Euroleague champions Fenerbahce 85-80.

Doncic’s next destination was a focal point on many a conversation over the course of the weekend. It still remains to be seen which NBA team will draft him. The growing consensus among NBA decision-makers in attendance at Stark Arena in Belgrade is that the teams drafting behind the Phoenix Suns at No. 1, the Sacramento Kings and Atlanta Hawks are likely to pass on European prodigy in favor of American frontcourt players.

Game Youth Ray Bourque Jersey The question remains whether a team will trade up into the top three to snag Doncic, or if he will fall to the No. 4 (Memphis) or even the No. 5 pick (Dallas) after being heavily scouted in the Euroleague playoffs against Panathinaikos and mostly struggling.

It is my distinct pleasure to welcome Paul Fenton as the general manager of the Minnesota Wild, Leipold said in a statement. Paul is uniquely suited for this job, having played 10 years of professional hockey and holding 25 years of management experience in the NHL. His gift of evaluating talent is obvious in Nashville’s roster and recent success. My relationship with Paul goes back to my early days in Nashville, and I know that Wild hockey fans are going to love Paul’s infectious passion for the game and unsurpassed work ethic. He’s the right person to deliver a Stanley Cup to the State of Hockey.

Fenton was introduced as the Wild’s GM on Tuesday.

While seriously considering about a dozen candidates, Leipold interviewed only two of them twice: Fenton and New Jersey Devils assistant general manager Tom Fitzgerald, who played for the Predators while Leipold owned them.

Fenton ended up the choice, and he signed a multiyear contract to run all of Minnesota’s hockey operations.

Men's Reebok Justin Faulk Authentic Red Home NHL Jersey: Carolina Hurricanes #27
Now, they’re actually communicating face-to-face, and the Steelers’ elder quarterback said he was happy to help the guy who could eventually replace him.

Game Mens Adam Humphries Jersey Via Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Roethlisberger said he’s always been willing to help the young guys (though that’s not really what it sounded like after the draft).

He’s got a big arm, Roethlisberger said. He overthrew [Antonio Brown] even though AB’s not going to admit it. He seems to understand the offense, seems to not have any issues in the huddle, so I thought he did really well.

Perhaps a slimmer Fournette will be a little quicker, and a little better, in his second season.

That if he were to pitch full time he could still pinch hit on a lot of his days off, and that if he were a great hitter he’d add about one win per year with those at-bats; if he were a good hitter he’d add about half a win; and if he were an average hitter he’d add about two-tenths of a win.

That if he quit hitting, he’d pitch on a five-day schedule instead of a six-day schedule. If he is really this Gabe Jackson Womens Jersey good a pitcher and he’s pitching every fifth day instead of every sixth, and he’s getting our 5 percent bump for not DHing anymore, he’s about a 4-win player, plus whatever he adds with his pinch-hitting.

As you see, it all depends on your assumptions. Personally, I’d probably assume he’s this good a pitcher (Nola, Arrieta), maybe a little better; and he’s the halfway-regressed batter (the Hosmer, Smoak), maybe a tiny bit worse. Checking the grid, that means he should stay exactly how he is. Phew!

Womens Adam Butler Jersey I talk, Jackson said, via the Panthers ‘ official website. But I don’t really do the superhero thing. I wake up like this. Just a natural edge. Like Beyonc茅 said, ‘She woke up like that.’

The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Jackson, the team’s second-round pick (55th overall) in the draft, is more than just chatter, of course.

He finished his career at LSU with 110 tackles (82 solo), four interceptions, 19 passes defensed, a sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Jackson can play in a variety of coverage schemes, including press-man, and clocked a 4.32 time in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Carolina got a good look at Jackson throughout Friday’s on-field work, and coach Ron Rivera came away impressed.

I thought Donte had a good day today, Rivera told reporters Friday. I got a chance to watch him do some individual (drills) and he moves around very quickly.

Still, there was a moment from Jackson’s media session that commanded the head coach’s attention.

Joe Hawley retired from NFL. Then he moved into van and hit road in search of new path

Joe Hawley retired from NFL. Then he moved into van and hit road in search of new path More When former Buccaneers and Falcons center Joe Hawley left the game of football, he decided to sell his possessions, buy a van and hit the road with his dog. FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — For eight years, Joe Hawley’s life followed an inescapable rhythm — the monotony of practice, film study and offseason workouts, all of it on a seemingly endless loop. The NFL dictated where he had to be and what he had to do. It wrecked his body. It consumed his life. It’s very structured. My whole life has been like that, Hawley says.

Jamar Taylor reinvigorated his career with the Cleveland Browns over the past two seasons. Cleveland acquired him from the Miami Dolphins ahead of the 2016 season, and the former Boise State star has started 29 games since.

However, new Browns general manager John Dorsey is looking to remake Cleveland’s secondary.

The fact that Ingram will now be suspended for the first four games of the season obviously won’t do him any favors on the negotiating table. Moreover, the Saints have reigning Rookie of the Year Alvin Kamara ready to step up and make up for Ingram’s production, both in the first four games and moving forward.

If the Colts deem Turbin expendable, they would save north of $1.1 million by releasing him. Turbin, who won’t turn 29 until December, should garner interest from other teams if Indianapolis does cut him.

Defensive tackle Eli Ankou made his way to the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent last year and managed to carve out a reserve role. He appeared in nine games and produced 15 tackles and 1.5 sacks.

While those weren’t eye-popping numbers, the fact Ankou even earned a spot in Jacksonville’s talented defensive line rotation is a testament to his talent. He was sharing time with the likes of Malik Jackson, Marcell Dareus, Abry Jones and Calais Campbell.

How long is ‘NEVER’? NFL team owner Dan Snyder at five years and counting

NEVER.
NFL Nike Men's Derrick Henry White Road Limited Jersey - #22 Tennessee Titans Vapor Untouchable
Fans of Washington’s NFL team know precisely what that word means when it’s rendered in capital letters. It’s a two-syllable rallying cry courtesy of the franchise’s owner on when he will change his club’s embattled team name.

USA TODAY published a story online five years ago today in which Daniel Snyder offered his instantly infamous typographical suggestion.

Blackhorse takes some solace in that. It’s just that now, she says, the Supreme Court says it’s OK to register a disparaging term.
Limited Womens Julius Peppers Jersey
This week, in an op-ed for USA TODAY 鈥?our name comes in caps, too 鈥?the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation disparaged disparaging team names. Blake Martinez Jersey Richard E. Besser, the foundation’s president and CEO, wrote that it would no longer consider teams with Native American imagery for its annual award recognizing athletes and sports entities that use sports to make their communities healthier places.

So, three of five potential spots are accounted for in Michel, Burkhead and White. Who fills the final two?

Bolden has been a mainstay on the Patriots’ roster for six seasons. He was briefly released last September but re-signed two days later and played in all 16 games, recording eight tackles on special teams, carrying the ball 13 times for 67 yards and catching one pass for 7 yards.

Bill Parcells: Patriots drama doesn’t mean anything

Bill Parcells knows a Womens Terry Bradshaw Jersey lot about football, and more than a little about drama.
Limited LaDainian Tomlinson Youth Home Green Nike Jersey - #21 NFL New York Jets Vapor Untouchable
So while the rest of the football world is fascinated by the apparent quarterback-coach-owner power struggle in New England (with a little Gronk thrown in for flavor), the legendary former coach and Bill Belichick-mentor shrugged it off in a recent interview with Gary Myers of The Athletic.

I don’t pay any attention to that, Parcells said. Nobody knows what’s what exactly. You are just hearing gossip and conjecture and opinion. I don’t put much stock in that. Having been in a position myself as a head coach, a lot of things are said about an organization, the coaching staff and the owner. Some of the things are just flat out not true. Yet they get out and they get publicized because they make good headlines. The only thing you got to do is watch the product on the field.

They have a prolific passer. They have [Julian] Edelman coming back, Gronkowski is a target. They have some runners. Their back is a very, very good pass receiver. They got that young back from Georgia [first-rounder Sony Michel], who looks like he can score touchdowns if he gets a step or so. I don’t see anybody right now in their division that I would say has the upper hand on them, that’s for sure. If you can win your division, you are a long way down the road to doing something.

Kobe Bryant Jersey Parcells said he still speaks to Belichick occasionally, but said he never asked his former pupil why he didn’t play Malcolm Butler in the Super Bowl.

It’s kind of a big deal to many, but apparently not enough to derail the modern dynasty, at least in the mind of the Hall of Famer.

Obviously, we know him well, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. He’s been in our system. He’s someone we like very much as a person. We think he can help us as a player. There’s a business side to all these decisions on both sides 鈥?for our team and also for him. But we just want to spend some time with him. We really like him as a guy. He can help our team.

McClain had his best season in 2016 with the Cowboys, starting a career-high 15 games. He made 40 tackles and 2.5 sacks. It earned him a four-year, $21 million deal with Washington, but McClain was not a fit in the 3-4 scheme. Washington cut him after two starts, 20 tackles and one season.

Now, he’s looking to get back home in a defense that fits him.

Patriots sign seventh-round pick Danny Etling

The Patriots signed LSU quarterback Danny Etling to a four-year deal Wednesday. He was the first of the team’s nine draft picks to agree to terms.

New England made Etling the first choice of the seventh round, No. 219 overall. He joins Brian Hoyer behind Tom Brady.

Etling began his college career at Purdue and transferred to LSU in 2015. He took over as the starter for the Tigers in 2016 and held the job through last season. He completed 325-of-544 passes for 2,463 yards, 27 touchdowns and seven interceptions over his two seasons at LSU.

But, hey, since no one who tests positive under the PED policy ever was actually consciously trying to cheat, the agents need to say something. Even if the something that is said as a practical matter means nothing.

Yes, the Panthers. The last team Manning ever faced, beating them for a walk-off Super Bowl in.

It’s the latest opportunity that has been presented to Manning since retiring from the NFL more than two years ago. He has consistently rejected overtures and opportunities to do something other than pitch products and live life, but many believe he’ll eventually resurface as a member of an ownership group.

While playing, Manning often worked out at Duke University in Durham. The city became a location of major interest in 2012, as teams were lining up to sign the then-free agent.

The question likely will be whether Navarro offers the still-free agent executive a chance to not just be involved in owning the team but to run the show. With Manning, there’s no part-time, half-assed move. If he’s in, he’s all in. And if the offer is anything less than a chance to own equity coupled with a charge to run the franchise, it’s hard to imagine Peyton being interested.

Why should he be? Whether it’s Navarro or someone else, eventually an owner will give Peyton the power to write his own ticket, and he will.orioles_013

Hurney declined to comment on the nature of the situation, including the reason for resignation.

Responding to a question from an Observer reporter at Quail Hollow Club, head coach Ron Rivera said it’s a complicated situation.

McGee will be an unrestricted free agent this summer and has hopes of being a starting center, but said he has only two goals for the remainder of this season.

To take full advantage of every opportunity that I’m given and win an NBA championship. That’s it, he said. I just want to contribute to our wins.

Last year was the first time in eight years I missed that mark. 17. The first wide receiver selected will be D.J Moore from Maryland. He will not be drafted until the 20s, and there will be just four WRs (Moore, Calvin Ridley, Courtland Sutton, Christian Kirk in that order) taken in the draft’s first two days. 18. The loudest ovation at the draft will come when Saquon Barkley gets drafted, followed by Shaquem Griffin’s selection near the end of Friday night. Cowboys fans will not like their first-round selection, as is their wont. Some of the loudest boos in draft history came when Dallas took Zack Martin instead of Johnny Manziel back in 2014. Martin has been Pro Bowler in every season of his career. 19. Every sixth-round pick will be traded at least once.

Foster is facing three felonies stemming from an alleged attack on his girlfriend — domestic violence with an allegation that he inflicted great bodily harm; forcefully attempting to prevent a victim from reporting a crime; and possession of an assault weapon.

Lynch said if the charges are proven true, he won’t be a part of this organization going forward, per NFL Network’s Jim Kirk Gibson Youth jersey Trotter.

The 49ers are allowing due process to run its course with the 2017 first-round linebacker a year after cutting ties with corner Tramaine Brock immediately following a domestic violence arrest. Charges on Brock were later dropped, and he was cleared by the NFL.

On Monday, Lynch confirmed that Foster will continue to be kept away from Niners offseason workouts. The team is working with the young linebacker to create a structure away from the facility, the GM added.

Those miscalculations make this the most important draft in Browns history — and it’s why I believe they’ll be more conservative in their third go at this. It’s also why I think Sam Darnold, not Josh Allen, will be the first pick. Cleveland routinely outsmarted themselves in the Sashi era. The moment is ripe for a little conventional thinking. John Dorsey seems like a guy who will lean into that.
