Wade has remained a presence around the league since he played his last game, and his role in the future of the league looks to be expanding. He will be joining the Utah Jazz as a partial owner.
The Philadelphia 76ers have sole possession of the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference and they are now in the driver’s seat with 17 games to play before the playoffs. They just now need to take care of business in order to lock up the top spot and home-court advantage for the playoffs.New Orleans Pelicans

Embiid won’t ever be as adept of a passer as Jokic, but he has become more confident in his floor reads this season, particularly against extra help. He’s actively seeking out double-teams, knowing he can kick the ball out and create an open look on the perimeter.
''We didn't have a requisite level of aggressiveness,'' Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. ''There's just a level of urgency you have to have.''
Kevin Durant, who is also out for Brooklyn with a left thigh contusion, has a "more positive" prognosis than Harden, Nash said. Durant was diagnosed with the contusion after getting tangled up with Miami Heat guard Trevor Ariza on Sunday. Nash said Durant is day to day.Denver Nuggets

The stoppage sparked two days of meetings between players, coaches and executives, who discussed how, and if, they wanted to proceed with the 2020 season. Ultimately, players decided to resume the playoffs, while the league jointly announced initiatives including increased voting access, promoting civic engagement and advocating for "meaningful police and criminal justice reform."Orlando Magic

Fans in Philadelphia could use the laugh after watching Belt smack one into the stands to score two runs. The first baseman’s homer provided the first points of the three-game series between the two teams.
Now, that 103-win 2019 season looks like the apex for this group. And the Yankees’ drop back into the pack stems from reasons both internal and external.Seattle Mariners Face Coverings
A rundown between second and third ensued, with Rizzo throwing to Kris Bryant and Bryant then to second baseman David Bote. The ball wound up back in Rizzo's glove, and, well, hilarity ensued.
So what has happened to Yankees teams in the past that have started off close to that 5-10 record they are at now?
Corbin Burnes continued his incredible start to the 2021 season on Wednesday against the Chicago Cubs, striking out 10 in six shutout innings while giving up only two hits and no walks. In 18.1 innings this season, Burnes has given up just one earned run (0.49 ERA) and has struck out 30 without walking a batter.Kansas City Royals Face Coverings
In the months that followed, many leagues and organizations pledged action, money and platforms to help push for the eradication of racism, on and off the competition stage. There were strong statements, formations of social justice organizations, passionate Zoom meetings, anti-racism stickers on helmets and Black Lives Matter painted on baselines. Others, meanwhile, were less specific or slower to react.Minnesota Twins Face Coverings

Often, according to the lawsuits, Watson would insist that no one else be around during the sessions. Watson would frequently insist on being covered only with a towel during the massage sessions rather than draped with a sheet, as is customary, Buzbee said. And, in some instances, he brought his own towel, which was closer in size to a "small washcloth," Buzbee said.NFL Cincinnati Bengals Team Face Coverings
But what if they’re both off the board, as well as Waddle? Does Farley’s surgery disqualify him from that No. 12 spot?
"Also, the Ohio State product's 630 rushing yards on scrambles since 2019 (with five TDs) create even more upside when paired with the playbook and personnel potential of the Niners. With Kyle Shanahan's disguised rushing concepts, pre-snap motions and consistent fullback usage, San Francisco feels like a perfect landing spot for Fields."NFL Washington Redskins (Football Team) Team Face Coverings
Next year’s Super Bowl will be played at SoFi Stadium, too, which means the Rams will try to become the second team ever to play a Super Bowl in their home stadium. The Buccaneers, of course, just became the first team in NFL history to do so this year, beating the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVI.
This offseason alone, we've seen the Rams trade two first-round picks and a quarterback to the Lions for a quarterback they viewed as an upgrade. The Niners traded two future first-round picks and more to move up 10 spots in this year's draft to draft a quarterback when they already had a Super Bowl-starting quarterback on their roster.
Mathieu, who turns 29 next month, stressed he will let his agent handle contract talks. That frees him up to concentrate on what he needs to do on the field.NFL New York Giants Team Face Coverings

There is the grand legacy of Robinson, for a sport and for a country. There also is a charming family heritage at Dodger Stadium: his brother worked as an usher here, and then his niece, and now his great-niece.
It was a much different scene than the one Kapler encountered about a month earlier, when his previous bosses hopped on a plane in Philadelphia and flew to Kapler's home in Southern California.

The Yankees lost 4-2 to the rival Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday to secure getting swept at home in front of their home fanbase. Perhaps even worse, the Yankees have lost five straight and now hold a 5-10 record on the season, which is the worst mark in the entire AL. Of course, non-Yankees fans are reveling in the team’s dysfunction and misery.Los Angeles Angels Face Coverings

White tigers are a genetic variation of the better-known orange Bengal tigers. Thousands of tigers once roamed the forests in Bangladesh, India and Nepal. But their numbers have plummeted to just about 2,500 now, wildlife experts say. Poaching, deforestation and over-hunting have all taken their toll on the tigers.Detroit Tigers Face Coverings

It’s one of the greatest “what-ifs” of the last 20 years in basketball: What if Derrick Rose never got hurt? Former Bulls forward Luol Deng thinks they’d have won an NBA championship.Denver Nuggets
What is challenging for Pittsburgh is the Steelers are never terrible and therefore, do not have a great draft pick in most years. Pittsburgh has the No. 24 overall pick this spring. While the Steelers could go quarterback there, they will be reaching on the at-best No. 6-rated signal-caller in this draft class. With that in mind, they could still find value if they do trade back or take one later.NFL Detroit Lions Team Face Coverings
The Rams will have plenty of time to enjoy their temporary digs when the draft begins April 29. For a fifth consecutive year, the Rams will not make a first-round selection after trading the pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars as part of a package to acquire cornerback Jalen Ramsey.

Cousins is far from perfect, but more often than not, he makes the right throw to give his receivers a chance to produce yards after the catch. He’s never going to be the All-Pro he needs to be to justify his massive salary, but he’s still a quality starter at the game’s most important position.

"Things are moving, but they're not moving as fast as we want. [The NCAA is] still stubborn in their ways and just trying to be slow so this batch of athletes moves on from college and the new batch of athletes doesn't care as much," Guidry added. "As we've seen, there's still going to be people being killed by the police. That's not changing," Guidry said. "It should, but it's not.

The Jets upgraded the pass rush with Carl Lawson in free agency, but there is still work to do. At only 20 years old, Ojulari led the SEC in sacks, tackles for loss and forced fumbles due to his get-off, length and instincts. And it is clear he has yet to play his best football.

It is no secret that Ohio State’s Justin Fields is a very different prospect than Alabama’s Mac Jones, and the ESPN NFL draft analyst believes both options could be successful in Santa Clara.

Morey described this dynamic as "a media creation" and added that "it’s convenient for agents to focus on it." Still, coaches in professional sports often feel their authority diminishes within a front office and locker room if they have lame-duck status. D’Antoni has dismissed that idea with as much conviction as he has that offenses should center more on outside shooting and floor spacing and less on plodding big men.Orlando Magic
All of those players carved out long and valued NBA careers on playoff-contending teams by both embracing and excelling in sixth-man roles. Ginóbili (one), Williams (three) and Crawford (three) have combined to win seven of the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year awards in the past 13 years.
Unfortunately, basketball is a team sport and Curry does not have the supporting cast to win big this summer. With No. 2 overall pick James Wiseman out of for the season, even more of the burden falls on Curry, Draymond Green and the rest of Golden State to pick up the slack. Golden State should make the play-in portion, but anything beyond a first-round series victory is gravy.Washington Wizards

Even with the age conversation, Burks has proven himself as a reliable scorer who adds stability with his ability to create his own offense and adjust his game to fit the teammates he plays with.
Jerry Bembry: Boston vs. Miami. Before the season, many people would have had the Celtics and Heat among the top 10 teams in the league. The combo of Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum in Boston represented the NBA's future, and the Heat were coming off an incredible run to the Finals. No one could have imagined both teams hovering around the seven/eight spots in the East.
For years we have debated if Brandon Roy's No.7 should hang in the rafters, too. And while that argument is neither here nor there, it's worth noting that even though No.7 isn't retired, no Trail Blazer has worn the number since Roy retired. Not even future Hall of Famer Carmelo Anthony could get the No.7. In that same vein, no player has worn No.12 since LA left town. There is already a respect factor with the number. Why not make it official?Detroit Pistons
The Duke University product has averaged 14.8 points and shot almost 50% from the field for his career, but he has struggled to live up to his potential after suffering a pair of ACL tears in his right knee early in his career, including one just a couple of months into his rookie season in 2014.
