NBA mock draft: Who do the Warriors pick with No. 7 and No. 14?

The final piece to the 2020 trade involving D’Angelo Russell and Andrew Wiggins will change hands as the Warriors were awarded the Minnesota Timberwolves’ first-round pick in Tuesday night’s draft lottery. Golden State will pick seventh and 14th in a deep draft. Things can and will change between now and the draft on July 29. The draft combine is taking place in Chicago this week, and front offices have another month of scouting and interviewing that will shake up their boards. But to help figure out who may fall to the Warriors, here’s a mock draft of picks 1-14 in the aftermath of the lottery, starting with the Detroit Pistons with the top overall selection. 1. Detroit Pistons: Cade Cunningham, guard, Oklahoma State The Pistons come out as the big winners of this draft because they are in position to select Cunningham, a generational talent who can make an immediate impact. He enters the NBA with a rare blend of size (6-foot-8), playmaking and scoring ability. At 19, he plays with the patience and vision of a seasoned vet and can provide balance to Detroit’s…

SF Giants-Angels matchup between Ohtani, Gausman features a first in MLB history

ANAHEIM — When Gabe Kapler and Joe Maddon turned in their respective lineups for Wednesday’s matchup between the Giants and Angels, the two managers guaranteed the game would feature a first-of-its-kind occurrence. It’s been 48 years since the American League implemented the designated hitter and 24 years since the Giants participated in MLB’s first-ever interleague game, but for the first time on Wednesday, a National League club will use a designated hitter in a game in which an American League team won’t. With two-way superstar Shohei Ohtani scheduled to start for the Angels, Maddon elected to give up the DH and have Ohtani, who has hit 23 home runs this season, bat for himself in the No. 2 spot in his lineup. Ohtani is tied with Vladimir Guerrero Jr. for the major league lead in home runs and entered the series with an OPS above 1.000 before going 0-for-3 with three strikeouts and a walk on Tuesday against the Giants. Giants starter Kevin Gausman has turned himself into a respectable hitter for a pitcher as he’s 5-for-26 with four sacrifices this season, but the thought…

A’s president Kaval raves about ballpark site options in Las Vegas

The A’s say there is only one location in Oakland they will consider for a new ballpark. But according to a new report, the team is considering at least 20 potential sites in the Las Vegas area. A’s owner John Fisher and team president Dave Kaval on Monday and Tuesday toured several potential sites for a new MLB stadium, including some they had not previously seen in their first fact-finding visit to Southern Nevada in May. Last month, A’s officials looked at sites near Las Vegas Boulevard, in the city suburbs of Henderson and Summerlin, and at Cashman Field near downtown. On this trip, Fisher and Kaval also reportedly looked at the “Resorts Corridor” near the Strip, some areas a few blocks away from the famous boulevard and also a UNLV-owned property just north of McCarran International Airport that the Raiders once considered for their new stadium. Another visit by the A’s to the Las Vegas area is planned for early July. “The reality is that all the sites have a lot of positive attributes and so I really don’t think we’re really in a…

SF Giants notes: How to beat Ohtani the pitcher, why Dubón was emotional after home run

When Giants pitching and hitting coaches held their pre-series meetings on Tuesday afternoon, each group had to devote time to preparing for Shohei Ohtani. The two-way superstar entered the series leading the American League in home runs with 23 and leading Angels pitchers with a 2.70 ERA and 73 strikeouts in 53 1/3 innings. Neutralizing Ohtani at the plate was the Giants’ first step to beating the Angels and on Tuesday, right-hander Anthony DeSclafani found a way to do so. DeSclafani walked Ohtani once, but picked up a pair of strikeouts against him before reliever Dominic Leone punched out the left-handed hitting slugger in the eighth inning. “Ideally I wanted to make sure he was up with nobody on in case he did clip me,” DeSclafani said. “It wasn’t something hard in the gap or a two-run homer or a three-run homer, then just tried to mix it up and keep him off balance. You try not to fall into a pattern with him and I felt like I was able to do that.” The Giants had a clear plan of attack against Ohtani, targeting…

The pandemic cost transfer students vital time on campus: Some want it back

By Ashley A. Smith, EdSource The coronavirus pandemic cost some transfer students more than worry and anxiety over falling ill. It cost them internships and research opportunities, chances to work closely with renowned faculty, and even travel abroad as part of their studies. With less time on campus than the traditional freshmen or sophomores who arrive as high school graduates, some question whether transfer students can get any of that time and those opportunities back. “That’s the thing we don’t talk about,” said Alexis Zaragoza, a transfer student at the University of California, Berkeley. “I have friends graduating right now, and they entered the pandemic only having one semester of actual college and doing college things as transfer students. To me, that’s a significant loss of time.” Students missed out on opportunities to travel to Washington, D.C., for a semester or participate in state government as part of UC’s Sacramento program, she said. These college programs and activities are essential to giving students, especially low-income students like Zaragoza, opportunities to network and expand their experiences. “How many students are losing the only time in their…
