Celtics are reportedly engaged in talks with the Cavaliers about acquiring No.1 pick.
Reports, according to CSNNE.com who are claiming a league source told them, "If the Celtics were able to secure the top overall pick, they are expected to choose between Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker...although multiple sources indicate Boston would lean more towards Wiggins than Parker." Any deal for the number one overall pick would likely involve the Celtics sending one or both of their first round picks (No. 6 and No. 17 overall) to the Cavs, and with that type of ammo to bring to the trading table it seems that Boston has a legitimate chance of prying the top pick away from the Cavs.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Addison Russell will start and bat ninth Tuesday.
The team wasn’t going to bring up a top prospect to have him sit on the bench. The Cubs were getting little production out of their second baseman, so they had Russell work in at second base while in the minors. The fantasy potential for this kid is high and owners should consider picking him up, in case he performs like everyone expects. He is going to take his bumps early, so don’t give up hope on the young star. Analysis: Colby Conway
Al Horford said he's good to go for game two.
Horford suffered a hand injury during the fourth quarter of Game 1 but was able to return and play the final six minutes but with his ring and pinky finger taped together. X-rays taken on the hand were negative but Horford expressed that he was in considerable pain. Given that it's playoff time there was little chance Horford would not be on the court for the Hawks Game 2 matchup against the Nets. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
