Daily Roundup: Aug. 7


Aug 7, 2019

Here’s a recap of the latest sports news:

  • From McDonogh to NBA, Brett Greenberg and Ben Eidelberg followed boyhood dreams to Wizards front office, The Baltimore Sun reports.
  • Elliott and Gordon will likely get new contracts, but the teams still hold the leverage here, which is illustrated by Michael Thomas’s contract extension with the Saints, writes Sports Illustrated’s Andrew Brandt.
  • Simone Biles is the only big name to return from the highly-decorated Rio 2016 squad. With most of the sport’s familiar faces missing, The Wall Street Journal highlights the new athletes to watch.
  • Kyle Lowry has every excuse to back out – injury, title run, contract year – but he wants to play in World Cup: “I love USA Basketball. I got a gold medal, and I wanted to have a chance to keep the legacy going and have a chance to be coached by Coach Popovich,” Lowry told The Athletic.
