New Orleans Pelicans will get Lonzo Ball and other picks

Anthony Davis will be traded to the Lakers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com reports. New Orleans will get back Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three first-round picks, including the No. 4 pick in the 2019 draft. In a recent Sports Illustrated story by S.L. Price, Davis's agent Rich Paul said the 26-year-old star would still become a free agent in 2020 and wouldn't sign a contract extension with any team. Paul added that if the Celtics were to acquire Davis, it would be on a rental basis and for one year only.

Wojnarowski reports Davis "has long planned" to sign a contract with the Lakers in 2020 when he hits free agency.Davis has been the subject of trade rumors since he requested a trade before the deadline this February. In the SI story, Paul said he didn't intend to go public with the trade request, instead blaming former New Orleans general manager Dell Demps for forcing his hand. The Pelicans decided to sit the six-time All-Star out of fourth quarters to make sure he stayed healthy ahead of the off season.

From Rock Nation:

One point is still a win to stay alive and one point is still enough to win a title.

Toronto fans knew that it was coming and the Raptors knew it too. Despite the Warriors best efforts in Game 6, the Toronto Raptors defeated an ailing Warriors team 114-110 in Golden State. Granted that many will cry foul (pun intended) over the fact that both Kevin Durrant and Klay Thompson did not play due to injuries, the show must still go on. The Warriors were desperate to stay alive on their home court; but going up a fully healthy Raptors squad with a deficiency of two of their best starters, there was only so much that could done. To their credit, the Warriors kept it close all the way to the end, but a final 3 point attempt by Steph Curry that would have tied the game in the final seconds fell short of the mark.

Excited Raptor fans at home

What will become of the Warriors now? The future of the team is in doubt with trade rumors swirling about since last year , involving Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durrant. The Warriors had a great run as defending NBA champions. It is unwise to break up any championship franchise, but now that the season is finally over, NBA teams can now be restructured. Are the Warriors on the list of teams to make changes?

NBA Champions, 2019 - Toronto Raptors

The Raptors are one win away from their first ever NBA Title! Can they do it? The city of Toronto certainly believe so!

From CP24:

Officials are encouraging members of the public to leave the car at home on Monday night and consider taking public transit, cycling, or walking to their destination instead. There will be additional TTC service on Monday night to transport people in and out of the downtown core, including five more trains and 25 additional buses before and after the game, which begins at 9 p.m.

“Toronto, and the entire country, is rooting for our Raptors. I'm encouraging all residents who are attending NBA Finals festivities to use the TTC and to keep cheering on our team responsibly,” Mayor John Tory said in a written statement Sunday.

“I've been assured that police, TTC, city staff and MLSE have plans in place that will keep the public safe and allow everyone to share in the fun." The Raptors currently lead the Golden State Warriors 3-1 in the series and could become NBA champions with a win on Monday night.

Venues across the city will be hosting viewing parties for the historic game, including some Cineplex theatres. Despite requests, a spokesperson for the Blue Jays issued a statement Sunday saying there will be no screening of Game 5 at the Rogers Centre on Monday night. 

"The Toronto Blue Jays are rooting hard for the Raptors to bring home a championship. We are fans too, swept up in the unbelievable wave of pride and emotion pulsing throughout the GTA and across Canada," the statement read.

"We considered hosting a viewing party, but in consultation with the city, ultimately determined that all of the focus and necessary city resources should be dedicated to the arena and Jurassic Park, to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all Toronto fans. We cannot wait to cheer on the Raptors as they continue their historic run."
