Ezekiel Elliott suspended for 6 games

 ESPN first reported the development. Elliott was formally informed of the suspension by the NFL on Friday morning. The suspension stems solely from the league's investigation into the domestic violence allegations made by Thompson in July 2016, a league source told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

UCLA's Lonzo Ball heads deep class of point guard prospects in Draft

It’s a dangerous term to throw around, but you’re going to be hearing a lot of things that may not necessarily be true in the coming weeks when it comes to the NBA Draft. We merely are offering a public service -- don’t believe every mock draft you read or see. It is not in many people’s best interests -- agents, GMs, teams -- to be honest right now, lest the player they want fall into someone else’s hands. So people pump up guys they don’t think they can play, and stay quiet about the people they really like. Yet we want to prepare everyone, including ourselves, as best we can for the June Draft, which should be one of the deepest and most versatile in years. If ever a talent-deprived team needed to have a pick, or picks, this is the year. There has rarely been a year with as many point guards -- our first group -- available, or so many different kinds of scoring wings, which we’ll get to in the coming weeks. So we begin our annual deep dive with point guards. It’s an odd time to be a college or international playmaker. If there’s one position that the NBA is full of, it’s dynamic point guards. There are so many, who play the position so differently, yet so well -- James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Stephen Curry, Kyrie Irving, John Wall, Isaiah Thomas, Chris Paul, Damian Lillard, Tony Parker, Goran Dragic and on and on and on. Yet teams are always looking for the next great one, because a great point guard can turn around a team’s fortunes so quickly. Yet the decisions will be fascinating. What if the Boston Celtics, who will have the Brooklyn Nets’ first-round pick this year, wind up with the top spot? They already have an All-Star point guard in Thomas … could they pass up the elite talent available? What if the Philadelphia 76ers, which will receive the better of the two picks between itself and the Sacramento Kings due to a 2015 trade, somehow gets the first pick again -- a year after the 76ers got the first pick and used it on point guard Ben Simmons? What if the Los Angeles Lakers get the first pick? They used the second pick of the 2015 Draft on point guard D’Angelo Russell. Under new management -- and in need of an incandescent star -- would the Russell experiment just … end?
