It is not clear if these shoes will be releasing, or if they were exclusively made for Fashion Week, but stay tuned to Sneaker News for updates.. Now, the legend has, at the very least, played his last game for the Calgary Flames. So how did a relationship that started with so much promise end so abruptly? There¡¯s no one answer, but rather a few driving factors that have led to Jagr¡¯s imminent departure from Calgary.As a slow-footed ¡®old guy¡¯ in a speed-emphasized, young man¡¯s NHL, production trumps everything. Unfortunately for Jagr and the Flames, his offensive-output has dropped dramatically just one season removed from a 46-point (0.56 PPG) campaign with the Panthers. Through 22 games with Calgary, Jagr¡¯s point-per-game pace of 0.31 is the worst of his career, as is his minuscule 3.1 shooting percentage. His primary point production has dropped off mightily, too, with his primary-points-per-60 (all situations) falling over 30 percent to 1.05 this season from 1.55 in 2016-17.There are reasons for this monumental drop in offensive production that extend far beyond Jagr¡¯s dwindling skillset. A decline in ice time and a lack of opportunities in choice situations has certainly effected Jagr¡¯s output, as has an unusual run-in with the injury bug, which the soon-to-be 46-year-old has avoided for the majority of his 24-season NHL career.Since arriving on youth-laden Flames club, Jagr has seen his overall ice time lessened by almost 25 percent. His 13:03 TOI this season is over four minutes less than the 17:06 he averaged the past three seasons, with the majority of that coming at even strength, and while skating on the Flames¡¯ third and fourth lines. Jagr has played just 34:51 on the power play through 22 games this season, an average of just over a minute-and-a-half per game. Last season with the Panthers, Jagr averaged just under three minutes TOI per contest with his team a man up.Offensive output along with opportunities to produce are down big time, and maybe the biggest reason for that is Jagr¡¯s inability to stay healthy as he has his entire career. Though he was just a young-buck at the tender age of 44-45, Jagr dressed in all 82 games for Florida last season, the sixth time in his career that he¡¯s suited up for every single one of his team¡¯s contests. The eight-time All Star has dressed in at least 75 games an astonishing 16 campaigns during his career, and has missed just 20 of 458 games (4.4%) since his 39-year-old season in 2012-13. This season alone, Jagr has been sidelined for a whopping 49% of Calgary¡¯s game, missing 21 contests with a lingering lower-body injury which has plagued the two-time Stanley Cup champion for the better part of four months.NASCAR fans are used to hearing controversial things out of Kyle Busch¡¯s mouth ¡ª not his brother¡¯s. Well, that changed this week. During the NASCAR Media Tour in Charlotte, N.C., on Tuesday, Kyle said the sport¡¯s emphasis on marketing young drivers is ¡°stupid.¡± Fellow drivers ripped the ever-opinionated Kyle for the comments, but NASCAR itself said the remarks were ¡°fair.¡± Enter Kyle¡¯s brother, Kurt Busch. During a recent appearance on the Domenik Nati Show, Kurt attempted to rationalize his brothers comments. ¡°I agree with certain aspects of what he¡¯s challenged, and then I disagree with other parts of it,¡± Kurt said. But what I think he¡¯s trying to say is we¡¯re promoting these guys, and they.Roger Federer completed his latest domination of the Aussie Open with a 5-set win in the Final on Sunday, his 20th career Grand Slam title. Rafa Nadal stole headlines earlier in the tournament when he wore a sleeveless shirt at the Australian Open recently. It is not a look that Federer dares to replicate. The reason is quite simple, according to Federer. World number one-ranked tennis player Rafa Nadal caused a racket this month. Not because he was forced to withdraw from the Australian Open due to injury, but because he went on the court to play wearing a sleeveless shirt. It is not a trend we can expect Nadal's playing rival Roger Federer to replicate. Not because Federer doesn't love Nadal's.Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer Close Previously worked at Indianapolis Star, covering the Indiana Pacers for nine seasons Also covered Vikings for St. Paul Pioneer Press Follow on Twitter Mike Wells: I think there¡¯s a pretty chance that NC State defensive lineman Bradley Chubb will still be on the board when the Indianapolis Colts draft at No. 3 overall. That¡¯s because the Cleveland Browns and the New York Giants, the teams with the top two picks, both need quarterbacks for the present or the future. The bigger concern -- if you want to call it that -- is that the Colts might not be in the position to choose between Chubb and Penn State running back Saquon Barkley at No. 3. Indianapolis needs help.Mike Schmitz ESPN With 21-year-old rookie stat-stuffer Ben Simmons and 23-year-old All-Star starter Joel Embiid as cornerstones, the Philadelphia 76ers have one of the most exciting young cores in the NBA. Sprinkle in high-level role starters such as Dario Saric (23) and Robert Covington (27), and young bench contributors T.J. McConnell (25) and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (22) and there's reason for the optimism flowing through Philly, even with prized No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz yet to regain form. The Sixers are competitive (No. 7 in the East) while still sitting on young talent and future assets. But with all the well-deserved focus on Philly's talented, young roster and its future draft picks,2018 Dallas Cowboys Mock Draft Tracker - John Hancock, DallasNews Ten experts make their draft predictions for who they believe the Cowboys will select with the 19th overall pick. Here's from Mel Kiper Jr.'s pick: The rest of the experts are picking the following players: DT Maurice Hurst (3), DT Da'Ron Payne (2), DT Christian Wilkins [did not enter the draft], WR Michael Gallup, WR Christian Kirk, S Derwin James, Check out the write-up on each in the orginal article. If you've ever watched the Cowboy war room when they are on the clock in the second round, you can usually see them pretty excited about a player still left on the board. Last year, that excitement came from Chidobe Awuzie, A couple weeks ago, Matt Provenzano went over how the Yankees looked according to Dan Szymborski¡¯s ZiPS projections. Spoiler alert: they look good. Projections are not a fail-safe, and reality will always diverge from what is forecast. That the Yankees project demonstrably better now than they did in recent years, however, can only be taken as a good sign. There are other teams the Yankees must contend with, however. Chief among them are the Red Sox. Indeed, Boston has won the AL East each of the past two seasons. No matter how good the Yankees look moving forward, the Red Sox are still here, and they must be taken seriously. Just how seriously? It helps to once again turn to ZiPS to get a feel.It¡¯s the worst-kept secret in the NBA that the Los Angeles Lakers have plans on luring two big free agents this summer, but in order to do so they will need to clear some salary cap space. Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle have been mentioned ad nauseum as potential trade candidates, but a somewhat surprising inclusion recently was Larry Nance Jr. Once called the team¡¯s secret weapon by president of basketball operations Magic Johnson, Nance began the season as a starter, but now comes off the bench. Either way, he constantly provides excellent defense and hustle, even as his offensive game hasn¡¯t developed as much as many had hoped, himself included. Many viewed the Lakers possibly shopping.The Cavaliers' Dwyane Wade posted an emotional farewell to Instagram on Saturday after the passing of his agent Henry "Hank" Thomas. A representative from Thomas' agency, CAA, confirmed his passing to Sports Illustrated. Wade had missed the Cavaliers game on Friday night against the Pacers with a "family emergency." In the post, Wade wrote about how Thomas served as a father figure to him and he wished he would be there for the next moments in his life. A post shared by dwyanewade (@dwyanewade) on Jan 27, 2018 at 12:32pm PST Coach Tyronn Lue said Friday that general manager Koby Altman talked with Wade and told him to "take his time" with the issue.

Have feedback or have something that should be shared? Hit us up at @mlbdailydish on Twitter or @MLBDailyDish on Instagram. The Giants are ¡®expected¡¯ to be in mix for Bryce Harper next winter. Does no one else see the awkwardness here? We¡¯re not going to sugar coat it¡ªthe stove is so cold it¡¯s actually a freezer. But is there light at the end of this frigid tunnel? These are the one remaining free-agent fit for every team. The Royals have re-signed Alcides Escobar. The Mets have re-signed veteran infielder Jose Reyes. As reported by our Sports Boy Wonder Chris Cotillo,The Cardinals have been fairly quiet since their Dec. 14 trade for Marcell Ozuna. While the Ozuna addition surely moves the needle when it comes to the Cardinals' chances of making the postseason in 2018, needs remain. Mostly, the focus has been on third base. While you can certainly argue that a known quantity in the infield is called for, I'd argue the rotation presents more of a need. Here's why that's the case ... 1. The Cardinals have lost a lot of starts from last season. In keeping with ancient tradition and the rulebook, the Cardinals played 162 games in 2017. Lance Lynn and Mike Leake combined to start 59 of those 162 games, or 36.4 percent of them. Lynn is of course one of the many..The Raptors came off a three-day break Wednesday to defeat the Atlanta Hawks 108-93 at Philips Arena and are 6-4 in their past 10 games.They used the days off for some practice after losing to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday.. And Browns General Manager John Dorsey wasn¡¯t ready to narrow the field too much this week when asked at the Senior Bowl about the possibility of using the top pick on one.."I think we got back to our defensive fundamentals," said reserve point guard Fred VanVleet, who scored a team-high 19 points. "A little bit better rhythm within our offense, passing the ball, we had it moving a little better. Guys were able to knock down shots and just play unselfish basketball."The Jazz (20-28) are 6-19 on the road after they rallied to defeat the Detroit Pistons 98-95 in overtime on Wednesday to go 4-6 in their past 10. The Jazz were coming off a loss to the Hawks on Monday."We were down late and were able to string together some stops," Jazz coach Quin Snyder said after the game on Wednesday. "It's good to win. We missed a few layups and some open shots, but we made them when we needed to."The Raptors already have a win over the Jazz, a 109-100 verdict on Nov. 3 in Salt Lake City, and are going for a season sweep of Utah for the fourth time in the past five seasons.As the Raptors press to gain home-court advantage through the conference finals, coach Dwane Casey still has concerns, particularly with the way the team has performed late in close games."Where we're having an issue is at the end of games," Casey told the Toronto Sun. "We've changed dramatically from being one of the top offensive teams in the league to bottom five in the league in the last five minutes."In games in which the difference in the score is five points or fewer with five minutes or fewer remaining, the Raptors have gone from sixth and 10th in field-goal percentage and points-per-game during clutch time last season to 21st and 17th in those categories this season."A lot of that is. ... disorganization between what we're doing as far as moving the ball, ball movement, playing to our triggers, and that's what we've got to get back to," Casey said. "We kind of fell back from that, some of it is personnel-driven, different personnel in the game (at) the end of the game, whether it's a defensive unit that we have in, so we have to get that organized as a staff to make sure guys understand what we're doing last five minutes of the game."We have to continue to play in our triggers and not go into so-called 'called' plays the last five minutes of the game.""Last year, we always reverted to going to a lot of isolation every time down," Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan said. "This time around, we are still getting a feel for trying to move the ball, trying to put the isolation game in and trying to figure it out. There are so many elements that we are still trying to figure out rather than going with what works or whatever has been working throughout the game and carrying it over to that moment."Meanwhile, there have been reports of tension with the Jazz as trade rumors abound and the team has struggled since posting a 13-11 record after winning their sixth straight game on Dec. 4. Jazz guard/forward Joe Ingles suggests that the reports are exaggerated."The end of the day it's really only us and the coaching staff and the guys in the locker room that knows what's going on," Ingles told the Salt Lake Tribune. "Everyone else just assumes and makes assumptions or does what they have to do. I love how we've stuck together.""We have a bunch of guys who want to get better and want to be better, that's been our biggest thing," Jazz rookie guard Donovan Mitchell said. "When you have guys like Joe who defend our locker room and our team, it's just leaders like that who keep guys together.". Durant photoshopped an image of James onto his shirt, using the same image he used to announce his signing with the Warriors in 2016. It was also the same title -- My Next Chapter -- as the Players' Tribune article he wrote for the announcement. Adding some more fun to the game, Durant wrote, "I'm coming for you Stephen." And did he announce he was the No. 1 pick in the draft between Curry and James? It appears so..Major League Baseball free agency has been at a standstill all offseason, and Scott Boras has some things to say about it. Boras was asked about the slow market ¡ª in which many of his clients are still looking for jobs ¡ª and, as usual, he did not hold back.Boras spoke to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic about his disappointment with the way teams are acting this offseason. He specifically took aim at the clubs that are not planning to field a competitive team in 2018.Those are some pretty strong words, but do they hold weight?

Jordan Brand¡¯s female emphasis rolls on with another women¡¯s exclusive Air Jordan 1 that takes an unconventional approach to the iconic color blocking of the silhouette. The Jumpman chooses to keep the upper section tonal with premium suede dressed in white surrounding a metallic gold Wings logo. Dipped in tan, this offering¡¯s toe box is the clear focal point as it is something that has never been seen on the sneaker that started is all. Equipped with premium leather, this offering¡¯s luxe aesthetic is continued, which is the reason it has a bit of a higher price point than normal for women¡¯s exclusive Jordans ¨C 5. Keep it locked to Sneaker News and we will provide you with release information as it becomes available.. Asked if it was safe to say he was taking a quarterback first, he replied: ¡°It¡¯s safe to say ¡®you never know.¡±.The Pacers have won seven of their last 10 overall and are looking for a four-game sweep of the Cavs. Indiana beat Cleveland 97-95 on Jan. 12 after falling behind by 22.. The motivation is obvious. Replacing the much-maligned Love and still-recuperating Thomas with two All-Star-caliber players would do wonders for a defense that is a fraction of a point from being the NBA¡¯s worst, even if an almost 33-year-old Gasol is no longer the All-NBA/All-Defensive player he once was and the 30-year-old Conley¡¯s latest injury (a sore left Achilles) has kept him out since mid-November. Pair them with LeBron James, and Grit ¡®n¡¯ Grind suddenly takes on new meaning.As reported last week by Marc Stein of The New York Times, the Cavs see two-time All-Defensive First-Teamer Jordan as just the sort of ¡°elite rim protector and rebounder¡± they need to clean up the messes created by their turnstile perimeter defenders. Williams, whose thrilling bid for a surprise All-Star berth came up short, would help revive what¡¯s quietly been a bottom-10 offense over the past month by providing what Cleveland hoped Thomas would: instant scoring, dangerous pull-up shooting and supplementary playmaking to lighten LeBron¡¯s load.You¡¯d assume the Clips won¡¯t feel super-compelled to cut bait on Jordan (and even Williams, despite his expiring status) now that they¡¯re in the midst of a surge that¡¯s put them back in the Western Conference playoff picture. Woj reported earlier this month that they ¡°aren¡¯t set on trading Jordan at all costs,¡± preferring the idea of standing pat to ¡°bringing back marginal draft picks with heavy protections.¡± If the Clippers can haggle the desperate Cavs down to minimal protection on the Nets pick, though, it¡¯s got a chance to be waaaaay better than ¡°marginal.¡± Jettisoning Williams and Jordan would also go a long way toward submarining this year¡¯s squad, thus improving the value of the Clips¡¯ own 2018 first (which, unlike next year¡¯s, they control) in the final season before lottery reform hits to change the math on tanking.. As of now, the only details available are regarding an apparel line that will include garments from tear away pants to parkas and everything in between. There are also ongoing rumors of a Nike Presto being included in this collection as well, but nothing can be confirmed at this time. Check out the rest of the style codes below and the the pieces they are affiliated with. Expect releases during the fall and winter and stay tuned to Sneaker News for new information as it becomes available and to find out if a Presto is set to be involved.One of the strangest Air Jordan 3 samples in history is the infamous ¡°clear sole¡± version of the White/Cement colorway. This unreleased sample dates back to the early 2000s and obviously has never released to the public, but according to zsneakerheadz a slightly modified version is set to release during the 2018 All-Star Weekend. Perhaps as a tribute to the 30th Anniversary of Michael Jordan¡¯s iconic Dunk Contest, this Air Jordan 3 will likely have the same ¡°White/Cement¡± color-blocking, but is said to feature a graphic print on the upper. We¡¯re a month away from the mid-February classic, so stay tuned for updates as we near one of the biggest weekends in sneakers of the year..We just want to make sure that we really deliver a multi-directional shoe. In terms of traction, we want to make sure that it¡¯s tuned perfectly so that any direction Paul or any player wants to go, it¡¯s there for him. We just make sure he¡¯s locked in, and all players need to be locked in. When he¡¯s coming down the court and popping those threes or coming around those screens really hard, he really likes that snug fit on the heel so he¡¯s not slipping inside the shoe. His needs didn¡¯t change from the PG1, but we always talk about ¡°evolution vs. revolution¡±, kinda like what you see with the Kobe line where Eric Avar will tweak the shoe a little bit to make it a little better each time out. We try to do that, and it¡¯s definitely more challenging at the 0 price-point than it is at the Kobe price-point, but I think we¡¯ve been able to improve every part of the shoe.. But the seventh-place team in the Western Conference does pose many of the same challenges the Mavs (16-32) witnessed firsthand in Wednesday night's 104-97 loss to the Rockets.. When examining reasons why the Warriors have been better on the road than at home, it literally starts at the beginning.Though their 38-10 record is the best in the league, there is no question Kerr and his staff members are seeking cures to the areas that have nagged the Warriors, particularly at home.Nike¡¯s Air Max 1 silhouette had a very busy 2017 campaign, including the return of numerous OG colorways in celebration of the sneaker¡¯s 30th anniversary. One of those resurgent color schemes was the Air Max 1 ¡°Obsidian¡± that utilizes the dark navy hue with a mixture of grey and quick hits of red on the toe of the outsole as well as its Nike branding. Now the Swoosh is taking the aforementioned Obsidian hue and re-using it on the same model completely devoid of any red. Other than that, the two designs are practically identical, making these a more than suitable consolation prize for anyone that missed out on adding another OG Air Max 1 to their collection.Drake¡¯s OVO camp took to Twitter to confirm the much anticipated release date for their next collaboration with Jordan Brand. This time around, the Toronto-based collective is bringing their signature white/gold aesthetic to the Air Jordan 8 Retro, with red accents hitting the Jumpman on the tongue. A special edition box will also come with this premium release, which is now confirmed to hit select retailers on February 16th. Of course, there¡¯s the black pair that¡¯s looming, as well as the two Kentucky-inspired ¡°Calipari¡± joints. Will 2018 be the strongest year for the OVO x Jordan partnership?Nike¡¯s ¡°All Over Logo¡± is back once again, this time on an unlikely silhouette that is gearing up for a comeback in 2018. Nike Tennis¡¯ Grandstand II from 1992 can be seen here dripped entirely in white with the aforementioned logo taking shape all across its upper. Featuring a blend of perforated and smooth leather on its upper, the Grandstand II boasts a simple midsole construction which creates a very clean aesthetic ¨C allowing for the boisterous branding to take center stage. Originally, the Grandstand¡¯s name derived from one of the most famous tennis tournaments in the world ¨C the US Open and its Grandstand. Fans of this Nike-friendly design will be able to pick up this Tennis gem from Nike Sportswear retailers when they hit shelves on January 26th.Last week, JUICE HK¡¯s adidas NMD Racer collaboration made its debut exclusivey at the Hong Kong-based retailer. Tomorrow, the first Racer collaborative effort will be unveiled to the world as it arrives at Consortium accounts all around the globe. CLOT¡¯s Alienegra motif takes center stage as its unapologetic aesthetic encompasses the Core Black Primeknit upper and makes its way all the way down to thew marbled outsole. Form truly does meet function with the new NMD Racer, as its updated tooling creates extra support while also providing designers with new elements to dress up. The JUICE HK x adidas NMD Racer will be available at select Consortium Accounts on January 20th with an MSRP of 220.00.

Sadly for you stateside AI fans, this set will be a China exclusive and will be limited to only 500 units. Much like the Answer IV Playoff Playoff pack from last year, this pair will be housed in special packaging, and will come with a bit of extra swag ¨C in the form of socks this time around. Dressed in white and red, the silhouette that Iverson wore during his 2001 MVP season in which he lead the 76ers all the way to the MVP finals, is back in another one of its original colorways.

Over the course of the last few months there have been quite a few rumors circling about Lebron James¡¯ wanting to join the Houston Rockets. Bleacher Report, a trusted sports source, wrote THIS article talking about the possibility of it happening but the rumors seemed to only circle among Houston Rocket fans. This morning, I received a text from my cousin who lives in Cleveland that the Lebron James trade rumors had begun to surface IN CLEVELAND, too. Now, my cousin is not on the inside and was merely texting me what he¡¯d heard around town amongst his friends and colleagues. He misspelled.MELBOURNE (Reuters) - South Korea's Chung Hyeon is a frightening prospect who can intimidate opponents but will not be able to trouble Roger Federer in their Australian Open semi-final, according to former champion Mats Wilander.The bespectacled 21-year-old, conqueror of six-times Australian Open winner Novak Djokovic, is already being compared to his Serbian victim with opponents finding it nigh on impossible to get the ball past his defenses.. Nike¡¯s LeBron 7 ¡°Hardwood Classic¡± PE¡¯s are inarguably some of the most iconic and most sought after PE¡¯s in the King¡¯s signature line, as the resale market demands prices upwards of ,000 for the ¡°Alternate¡± colorway. Now, the Swoosh is emulating the success of those drops wth a blue and orange version of the LeBron 15. It is not the first time Nike has replicated the retro Cavaliers¡¯ blue and orange color scheme, as it has been seen on other models the likes of the LeBron 14 and the Solder 10 as well.. New Orleans leads the NBA in "clutch" minutes, which are tallied when a game is within five points in the final five minutes. Of the Pelicans' 136 clutch minutes this season, 55 have come in the last nine games since Jan. 10.Gronkowski, who has made the Pro Bowl five times since he was picked by the Patriots in the second round out of Arizona in 2010, has been around the Patriots¡¯ practice facility this week. ¡°Gronkowski was present at the facility Monday,¡± Mike Reiss of ESPN reported on Tuesday. ¡°By the time reporters arrived in the locker room, his chair was folded up at his locker, and he had left.¡± Matthew Slater, the Patriots¡¯ special teams captain, told reporters earlier this week that Gronkowski was in, ¡°Pretty good spirits.¡±.Last week Kyrie Irving debuted a new PE version of his Kyrie 4 in a victory over the 76ers in the NBA¡¯s annual London Game. Dubbed the London PE, it sports a mixture of purple, red, and yellow, which honors the crest of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Off the court, music is one of Irving¡¯s passions, which takes further shape with embroidered red violin symbols coming emblazoned on the back side of this offering¡¯s upper. A touch of luxe is added to this model as well, as the golden yellow panelling and the toe cap of the design is dressed in premium suede.. The Cavs reportedly ¡°checked in¡± on Walker after Charlotte put him on the trade block. The 6-foot-1, 170-pound Walker isn¡¯t exactly a lockdown defender, but he¡¯d be an upgrade over what the Cavs trot out at the point of attack now, while bringing the mix of pick-and-roll playmaking and 3-point shooting, both on and off the ball, that Cleveland¡¯s been missing. (He¡¯s also locked up for next year on a bargain contract, ensuring you¡¯ve got one more high-level, likable player around should LeBron decide to leave this summer.) Williams is exactly the kind of floor-spacing forward who tends to thrive alongside LeBron. He also plays defense, which is nice..As long as everyone abides by the rules as laid down,¡± McMahon said, an obvious reference to everyone standing for the anthem.If the XFL overlooks Manziel¡¯s past, let¡¯s be honest: Manziel would be a great get for the new football league. He¡¯s a former first-round pick and his fame grew to a point where he was one of the buzziest names in the entire NFL, though his play on the field rarely rose to that level. His fame came from some notoriety, but it¡¯s not like that hasn¡¯t been in the McMahon¡¯s WWE playbook..It¡¯s not very often that M.V.P.-level players appear on the trade block. It¡¯s still rarer that the San Antonio Spurs fall out with one of their M.V.P.-level players.. Nike¡¯s annual Air Max Day celebration has led to a re-issue of an acclaimed Air Max shoe of the past. Marking this year¡¯s ¡°retro¡± is the Air Max 93 in the original ¡°Dusty Cactus¡± colorway from 1993, a shoe that had not released since 2014. This model, designed by none other than Tinker Hatfield, debuted the first-ever Air Max unit that wrapped around the heel and was also referred to as the Air Max 270 for its three-quarter coverage of Air. Of course that name has been applied to the brand new lifestyle sneaker that we recently examined in several colorways. Nike confirms that this release will be scheduled leading up to the official Air Max Day celebration in March..

The Brewers, for example, have been connected to Darvish but Miller Park is homer-friendly with a great batter's eye.. The Denver Broncos are one of multiple teams likely to target a new quarterback in the top 10 picks of the 2018 NFL draft, but which of them will still be on the board when they make their selection? In the latest 2018 NFL mock draft from CBS Sports, the Broncos luck out by getting the most pro-ready passer in this year¡¯s draft at No. 5 overall, as UCLA¡¯s Josh Rosen falls right into their lap. After the Cleveland Browns opt for USC¡¯s Sam Darnold at No. 1 overall, the New York Giants to pass on Rosen and the rest of this year¡¯s top quarterbacks at No. 2, preferring Penn State running back Saquon Barkley. The Indianapolis Colts add this year¡¯s top edge defender in North Carolina State¡¯s Bradley.The 49ers¡¯ five-game winning streak to end the season, compliments of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, shot the 49ers down the draft board. San Francisco will pick ninth or 10th, pending the results of a coin flip with the Oakland Raiders, who finished with an identical record and strength of schedule. General manager John Lynch will have some 0-million in cap space and nine selections in the NFL draft to continue rebuilding the roster with coach Kyle Shanahan. Our friends at Draft Wire published their latest four-round mock NFL draft this week, predicting the first five picks for San Francisco. Let¡¯s take a look and break down how the choices would fit. Veteran center Daniel Kilgore and guard.Other than LeBron James scoring his 30,000th point, not a lot is going right for the Cleveland Cavaliers lately. Team unrest has taken over the headlines, as the Cavs have dropped seven of their last 10 games, coinciding with Isaiah Thomas¡¯ return to the lineup. Players are reportedly sniping at teammates during team meetings. Nowhere was the team discord more evident than on the floor during the Cavs¡¯ 114-102 loss Tuesday to the Spurs. After Kevin Love takes an elbow to the face from LaMarcus Aldridge and falls down, not one Cavs teammate goes over to help him up.
