Darren Heitner @DarrenHeitner No 1 agent is dominating the top of the #NBADraft. Here are some pairings: Paolo Banchero – Mike Miller Chet Holmgren – Bill Duffy Jabari Smith – Wallace Prather Keegan Smith – Mark Bartelstein Jaden Ivey – Austin Brown Bennedict Mathurin – Nima Namakian – 8:50 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness Purdue’s Jaden Ivey selected fifth overall by the Pistons. Reminds me of 2010 when it was Gordon Hayward taken one spot ahead of the Pacers — to the Jazz at 9. – 8:33 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS Cade Cunningham and Jaden Ivey should be absolutely perfect together, and more importantly, they are going to be one of the most watchable backcourts in the NBA for years to come. I might watch more Pistons by New Year’s than I have in the past decade. – 8:33 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz Initial thought about the Pistons taking Jaden Ivey fifth: I wonder if this takes them out of the Jalen Brunson market, considering they can use all that cap room elsewhere and they now have Ivey & Cunningham paired up. – 8:30 PM
Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix Kings have to hit on Keegan Murray. Have to. That No. 4 slot was tricky. Lot of talent (Jaden Ivey, Dyson Daniels, etc.) in that range. Kings need Murray to be the best of the bunch — and fit in with the Fox/Sabonis core. – 8:30 PM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC Keegan Murray gives the Sacramento Kings a better chance of making the playoffs right away then Jaden Ivey does. Jaden Ivey has the higher ceiling, but not by much. And based on college production, Keegan Murray is BPA. Needless to say, I like the pick. – 8:29 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA Good on the Kings for grabbing Keegan Murray and picking their guy even with Jaden Ivey on the board. He will fit very well with Sabonis and Fox. Now Detroit gets their guy in Jaden Ivey. – 8:28 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS To be clear I like Keegan Murray and think he’ll do well in Sacramento. But Jaden Ivey is better and this is bad process from the Kings. At the very least trade down with Detroit and get something to do this. – 8:27 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness Pacers were very high on Keegan Murray. Very possible Jaden Ivey falls to the Pacers at 6. Have heard the Pistons aren’t sold on him. – 8:26 PM
Jake Fischer @JakeLFischer The Pistons are exploring opportunities to trade down from No. 5, sources said. A lot of interest in Jaden Ivey still remaining on the board. – 8:26 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor #Cavs fans: Keep an eye on what the Detroit Pistons do at No. 5 tonight. The Pistons are one of the teams interested in Collin Sexton, as I’ve been reporting for about a month. If Detroit gets Jaden Ivey or Ben Mathurin or Shaedon Sharpe then Sexton isn’t as much of a priority. – 8:25 PM
James Boyd @RomeovilleKid Just thinking out loud, but how much leverage does an incoming player really have? Jaden Ivey might not be that high on the #Kings, but if I’m the Kings and I want him, I’d still draft him anyway!! Lol be looking at each other like this after he puts that Kings hat 👀😂 pic.twitter.com/p8krciNAlX – 1:38 PM
Gery Woelfel @GeryWoelfel The NBA draft’s top 3 picks –Jabari Smith, Chet Holmgren and Paolo Banchero — have been virtually set for several weeks. The fun & games begin at 4. Kings are VERY receptive to moving the pick, and Knicks want it in worst way to get Jaden Ivey. Toppin and a pair of No. 1s? – 12:54 PM

Former FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke will appeal against his conviction for accepting bribes in a case involving World Cup media rights, his legal team said. A Swiss appeals court on Friday found Valcke, 61, guilty of bribery and forging documents but acquitted him of aggravated dishonest management as it handed him a suspended 11-month prison term and fine. It called the appellate court's reversal of a lower court's acquittal of Valcke in 2020 on corruption charges "a mistake and a fantasy", saying the contracts involved were favourable to FIFA and were approved at all levels of soccer's world body.

LONDON (AP) — Britain is ramping up a feud with the European Union by pressing on with a plan to rip up parts of the post-Brexit trade deal it signed with the bloc. Legislation that rewrites trade rules for Northern Ireland is scheduled to get its first major House of Commons debate on Monday, the first step on what could be a rocky journey through Parliament. The legislation, if approved by lawmakers, would remove checks on goods entering Northern Ireland from the rest of the U.K., thereby scra
