NBA Draft 2018: LiAngelo Ball goes undrafted

Translation: We don’t need LaVar Ball around any more than he already is.

LiAngelo could still latch on to a different summer league squad or NBA G League team, but his lackluster skillset and family baggage make that seem unlikely.

Standing 7-2 with a 7-6 wingspan and a 9-6 standing reach, Bol immediately piques your interest. Combine his size with some level of perimeter skill, including the ability to knock down shots from the outside, then throw in disruptive rim protection, and you’ve got one of the draft’s most intriguing prospects.

There are concerns, though, about Bol’s willingness to improve and his toughness on the court. It’s not clear he’ll ever be able to put it all together.

It was roughly where we wanted, Dyson said. I figured we’d go (inside) like we did two nights ago. Just didn’t get it far enough in there.

It was a big hit for a ballclub that had been 0-37 when trailing going into the ninth.

That was a big swing when the momentum shifted back to them in a big way, Rockies manager Bud Black said. It takes a special moment and a special swing to get it back on our side and DJ put a great swing on that ball. It was awesome.

LeMahieu had an RBI single as part of Colorado’s four-run fourth. His two-run single off Ty Blach in the seventh gave the Rockies a 7-5 lead.

Each of LeMahieu’s hits came off different pitchers.

The Blazers do have a strong track record of getting value from talented players cast off elsewhere, highlighted by Napier and Maurice Harkless. But I don’t think Stauskas has shown as much potential as a pro as either of them did in their previous strops.

The two deals San Antonio reportedly agreed to early Sunday morning don’t really square with the idea of the Spurs rebuilding with young talent acquired in exchange for Kawhi Leonard. Instead, San Antonio seems to want to win now — with or without Leonard.

Gay, who declined an $8.8 million player option on the second season of the contract he signed with the Spurs last summer, surely got the maximum raise possible — 20 percent — using non-Bird rights. That would put his deal at $10.1 million, a pretty good outcome for Gay given the limited market for free agents this summer. Gay and Kyle Anderson teamed up to fill in for Leonard at small forward last season, and I’d expect a similar arrangement going forward, presuming Anderson returns as a restricted free agent.
