With the Jazz likely to lose Gordon Hayward in free agency, and now George Hill , they could be ready to build for the future. The motivation for this thinking is surely influenced by the need to pitch Hayward. It's unavoidable that Rubio will be a draw on the Jazz's offensive workings in a way that Hill never was. The pick is top-14 protected. To acquire Rubio, the Jazz gave the Timberwolves a choice of the first round of the 2018 draft.
On Monday, Drake's history with a famed National Basketball Association fan also came up. Basketball for sure, but US Weekly says the other part is still unclear.

Subban during a scrum. Even Ron Hainsey chipped in with a goal. The Predators outscored the Penguins 9-1 in the past two games.

Any pending free agent signed would count as Vegas' expansion-draft selection from that player's team. He did not say if that might be an option with McPhee and the Golden Knights.

West has held a similar role with the Warriors for the past six seasons. West, of course, earned his greatest acclaim while with the Lakers , for whom he was a 14-time all-star and a 1972 champion, not to mention the 1969 Finals MVP (the only time that honor has been bestowed on a player from the losing team).

As Outteridge steered his 50-foot foiling catamaran toward the finish line, onboard microphones picked him up saying, "Yeah, boys!" Outteridge was plucked out of the water by a chase boat and was OK. Burling said the extra day to work on their boat after Thursday's races were postponed because of high winds, was a real bonus.
