The young core adds yet another top pick to join what's become a raft of young talent. But the missing piece is a capable point guard. Now that Boston has the pick after trading the top selection for No. Both players spent time competing in Italy, and Carroll was actually All-Rookie in 1981 and an all-star in 1987.

Nadal's desolation then was in stark contrast to the joy he showed here at the moment of victory, lying flat on his back in customary fashion to celebrate a remarkable achievement. Nothing could extinguish Nadal's fire though and he surged two breaks ahead in the third set despite the best efforts of Wawrinka to try and extend the contest.

Perez has dismissed speculation that Ronaldo is trying to put pressure on Real so that they will bear some of the burden of an eventual fine for tax evasion as Barcelona did for Lionel Messi. Ronaldo's agency, Gestifute, released a statement after the accusations, saying "it is clear that the player did not try to evade taxes" and there was "no offshore structure for evading taxes".
Fresh from #10 victories in Monte Carlo and Barcelona, Nadal met a determined opponent, 32-year-old, Stan Wawrinka , in France. "Last year", Nadal said , "was not an easy one".

Fultz led the Pac-12 in scoring and finished No. 6 among all Division I players, and was the top freshman scorer in the country. We won't officially know where any players are going until the draft kicks off on June 22nd, but at this moment the first pick appears to be all but a done deal.
