The biggest winners and losers from the NBA Draft

25 June 2017

Jimmy Butler wasn't a draft pick, but Minnesota's draft night trade for him (for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and swapped first round picks) gave them the best player acquired on Thursday. He had some seriously impressive performances for the Wildcats, one included an 39 point game against Ball's UCLA Bruins.

"It is a great opportunity", Fultz said. "We're going to be a fun, energetic, entertaining team".

Thibodeau has enough young players in Minnesota and wanted a veteran like he had during his successful run coaching the Bulls. Jackson furnished 16.3 points and 7.4 boards a game for the Jayhawks as a freshman last season.

The good news for Tissot is that they got way more media attention out of a botched ad than they would have out of a well-executed post.

Embiid averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.45 blocked shots in 31 games last season, missing the final 2 1/2 months because of a torn left meniscus.

Sikkim tourism hit after Darjeeling unrest: Minister
The BJP MP has not visited the city once since the crisis broke out. "We are ready for talks on Gorkhaland issue", Rai added. As Ghisingh's influence waned over time, the GJM launched another movement for a separate state of Gorkhaland.

"When you look at the combination of Ben and Markelle", Brown said, "we will grow those young players, allow them to co-exist and let them grow with each other".

The Sixers might have to be patient again because Fultz and Simmons will not only be learning how to play together but will also be doing so while playing their first National Basketball Association minutes ever, after Simmons missed all of last season with a foot injury. But no matter what, no one can take from LaVar Ball that he essentially willed his son into becoming the starting point guard of the Lakers, which is a pretty wonderful thing to do.

As Lonzo walked on stage to meet Commissioner Adam Silver and put on a purple Lakers hat, LaVar put on a gold and purple Big Baller Brand hat, the company he has started.

It was a good night for the "old" ACC.

In his recent introductory press conference, Magic Johnson said the Ball will be the new face of the franchise. "Just want to get on the court". I woke up and thought I was going to Boston for another workout with the Celtics. "Philly." I was just waking up. "By adding a player of Markelle's caliber to our promising roster, we believe we're incredibly well positioned for the future".

Disabled activists protesting the new Republican healthcare bill were dragged outside in their wheelchairs by capitol police. So, the protesters felt it was incumbent to voice their concerns to one of the most powerful Republicans in Congress.

Markkanen was arguably the purest and most talented shooter out of all the prospects in this year's draft class, which was largely the reason he was projected to be a lottery pick.

He was one of a record 16 freshmen drafted in the first round, including the top seven.

National Basketball Association champion Golden State and Cleveland didn't have a pick in the two-round draft, though the Warriors acquired the rights to second-rounder Jordan Bell from Chicago.

The other amusing story to come out of Fultz's day in the spotlight is that he's moving to Philly, home of the cheesesteak, and is most excited about their generic, fast food chicken sandwiches.

All Blacks vs Lions first Test
One thing they can not count on as they attempt to take the series to a Third Test decider is any complacency from New Zealand . The back three, with Elliot Daly on the wing and Liam Williams at full-back, worked well.
