The Draft


It’s been another wild and unpredictable year for sports — and it’s not over yet. Happy holidays, enjoy the games this weekend, and we’ll see you on Monday!

Making Headlines

MLB: Before the lockout, OF Cody Bellinger signed a one-year, $17 million contract with the Dodgers to avoid arbitration, Jeff Passan reported Thursday. 

NFL: Rookie QB Ian Book is expected to start for the Saints on Monday against the Dolphins, as Taysom Hill and Trevor Siemian are on the COVID list. 

NBA: Joe Johnson joined Dirk Nowitzki as the only two players to score a point for the same team at 20 and 40 years old. Johnson was initially drafted by Boston and signed a 10-day contract with the Celtics on Wednesday. 

Soccer: Barcelona is close to signing a $62 million transfer deal with Manchester City for forward Ferran Torres.

NCAAF: Rutgers will reportedly play Wake Forest in the Gator Bowl, replacing a Texas A&M program that had to withdraw due to COVID issues.
