The Draft

POWERED BY

We thought nothing could top the NBA trade deadline… then there was this year’s European summer transfer window. For this week’s “Friday Conversation,” meet the broadcaster who hasn’t made a move since joining ESPN in 1993.

Making Headlines

Soccer: After Real Madrid upped their Kylian Mbappe bid from $188 million to $212 million, PSG are now reportedly “nearing” an agreement on his transfer.

MLB: Aaron Judge’s go-ahead two-out single in the ninth gave the Yankees their 12th straight win — their longest since winning 13 in a row in 1961. Aroldis Chapman recorded his 300th career save in the win over the A’s.

NBA: The Cleveland Cavaliers acquired former Bull Lauri Markkanen on a four-year, $67 million contract as part of a three-team sign-and-trade .

Tokyo Paralympic Games: China leads the medal count with 45 (20 gold, 11 silver, 14 bronze), followed by Great Britain’s 28 (9, 10, 9) and RPC’s 26 (9, 7, 10). The U.S. is fifth with six golds, five silvers, and one bronze.
