  • Charlotte Hornets draft Kentucky shooting guard Malik Monk

    The Charlotte Hornets used the No. 11 overall pick in Thursday’s NBA draft to select Kentucky shooting guard Malik Monk. Monk, 6-3, averaged 19.8 points in his only college season. He shot 45 percent from the field and 40 percent from the college 3-point line. Monk is a prolific shooter-scorer. But he’s a bit undersized for an NBA shooting guard and that could make it a challenge initially to play him alongside point guard Kemba Walker, also smallish for his position at 6-1. The opportunity to draft Monk became real when the Sacramento Kings traded the No. 10 pick to the Portland Trail Blazers. They selected Gonzaga big man Zach Collins, opening the door for Monk to be available. Monk should

  • NBA draft: Top prospects for Portland Trail Blazers

    PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Blazers could end the NBA Draft on Thursday with as many as three rookies on their roster. Or they could end up with none. With reports that the Blazers are hoping to shed salary, there could be more than one player exiting the team by the end of the night. If Portland does hold onto one or more of its picks, it will look to fill needs. The Blazers need defense, depth in the post and shooting. Portland should be able to find players who fill those needs in this draft.

  • Here’s a look at all the Charlotte Hornets’ draft picks under Rich Cho’s direction

    Rich Cho, named Hornets general manager on June 14, 2011, has guided the team through six drafts. Four players from those drafts – Frank Kaminsky, Cody Zeller, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Kemba Walker – are still with the Hornets. At this point, probably few would argue with naming Walker, the future NBA All-Star and team leader, the best pick of the Cho era. Here’s a quick look at Walker and all of the draft picks Charlotte’s NBA team – the Bobcats for the first three drafts – have made under Cho’s direction. 2016 Malachi Richardson (Syracuse, guard, 1st round, 22nd pick): Rights were traded to Sacramento in exchange for Marco Belinelli, who was traded this week to Atlanta as part of the Dwight

  • NBA mock draft roundup: Who will the Blazers draft?

    PORTLAND, Ore. -- The NBA draft is eight days away. The Portland Trail Blazers, with the 15th, 20th and 26th picks in the draft, have been busy working out prospects the past couple weeks. Nobody knows if Portland will use all its picks or trade one or more, meaning the Blazers will be one of the most interesting teams to follow leading up to the draft. The most recent mock drafts seem to be reaching a consensus on some of the Blazers' selections. Duke forward Harry Giles shows up in most projections, and a few players (North Carolina's Justin Jackson, German big man Isaiah Hartenstein) show up more than once as well. This means nothing, of course. There is no inside information in these mock

  • Durant plays role of closer, puts Warriors on precipice of perfect postseason

    You all remember the final 4:59 of Game Seven last year, don’t you? It’s been eating at your eyes, ears, tongues and souls all summer, fall, winter and spring. The Golden State Warriors missed every shot they took for five consecutive minutes, lost the NBA championship and ripped the crown from their own heads, of their own accord, by their own hand. Well, life’s a funny old bastard sometimes, and now you can remember the last 3:13 of Game Three this year – when the Warriors did to the Cleveland Cavaliers what the Cavs did to them (and what they did to themselves) last June 18. They are now, as a result of Wednesday’s 118-113 win in Game Three of these NBA Finals, on the verge of finishing one

That would be, of course, the Bill Russell Award that goes to the MVP of The Finals, to the player who was great in the most games of the most important series. For when things looked bleakest Wednesday night, in a building holding 20,562 people screaming for his failure, Durant dived into the moment, pushing the Warriors to a 118-113 victory in Game 3 that gives them an imposing 3-0 series lead over the Cavaliers. One more victory, and the Warriors will have their second championship in three seasons. If that win comes

  • Report: Steve Kerr could return for Game 2 of Finals

    OAKLAND — The Warriors haven’t ruled out coach Steve Kerr returning to the bench during the NBA Finals and it sounds as if there’s a chance his return could come soon. ESPN’s Marc J. Spears, citing a source close to Kerr, reports that the Warriors coach could return to the bench for Sunday’s Game 2 against the Cleveland Cavaliers. “He may coach Sunday,” Spears reported. “He’s feeling better.” Kerr hasn’t coached since Game 2 of Golden State’s first round series against the Portland Trail Blazers as he continues to experience complications from a back surgery gone wrong nearly two years ago. It’s the same issue that forced him to miss the first 43 games of last year’s regular season. Acting coach
