UNC 'yard sale,' reminder of NCAA 'amateurism' double standard

On the day of the Tar Heels' "Yard Sale", many former players took to Twitter and voiced their frustration with the sale of jerseys they'd asked the school for, but been refused of. To be clear, most of the Pro Heels (or former Heels) had issue with the fact that much of the sold merchandise ended up on Ebay shortly after (or during) the sale. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Player Review 2016: Ty Lawson

A year ago Ty Lawson was a near All-Star caliber point guard for the Denver Nuggets. Now, he lives in a state of flux. Lawson was acquired by the Pacers in March, and for most of the regular reason looked like a great pickup who could make a difference in the playoffs. He didn't, but one should be careful not to jump to too great of a conclusion from that. (Indiana Pacers)

NBA Combine: Williams' confidence in Paige not misplaced

Thursday was filled with news about Roy Williams' upcoming knee replacement surgery, but Williams was more interested in talking about his players when interviewed by Andy Katz during the second scrimmage of the 2016 NBA Draft Combine.

Justin Jackson went into day one of the NBA Draft Combine with plenty to prove.

Brice Johnson at the NBA Combine

Brice Johnson was one of many NBA hopefuls to participate in the first day of the NBA Combine in Chicago on Thursday.
