The 2021 NBA champion Bucks will be adding power forward Semi Ojeleye to shore up their frontcourt depth, agent Sean Kennedy informs Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN (via Twitter). Selected with the No. 37 pick in the 2017 NBA draft out of SMU by the Celtics, the 6-6 forward spent his first four NBA seasons in Boston. Despite not being much of a scorer (his career-best average thus far is 4.6 PPG in 2020-21), Ojeleye nevertheless found his way into the rotation for the Celtics’ various playoff-bound teams over the years, including two Eastern Conference Finals teams in 2018 and 2020.

College basketball could stand to benefit from latest round of conference realignment driven by football
Conference realignment at the top of college athletics has largely been motivated this century by television markets and/or football relevance. Example: when the ACC expanded way back in 2004, the league took Miami and Virginia Tech from the Big East instead of, say, Syracuse, which had just won the national championship in men's basketball. In other words, the value of a school in relation to men's basketball is mostly irrelevant in these landscape-changing conversations.

NBA Free Agency started on Monday evening at 5PM central time. The approach from the Dallas Mavericks front office in past years has made this a somewhat traumatizing time of year for Mavericks fans due to the lack of execution of their plan.
For the second consecutive year, the team that once opted to play without centers targeted the center it wanted in free agency and landed him to become part of the rebuilding. The Rockets on Monday reached agreement with defensive stalwart Daniel Theis in a sign-and-trade deal with the Chicago Bulls, much as they did before last season with the Detroit Pistons to get Christian Wood, a person with knowledge of the deal said.

Bucks reportedly add Celtics forward Semi Ojeleye in free agency. Milwaukee wasn’t intent on just re-signing one of its own free agents in forward Bobby Portis on Monday. The Bucks also went out and added to their roster in the form of forward Semi Ojeleye. Ojeleye just completed his fourth...
CBS Sports has joined the chorus of media outlets who have pegged Alabama at the top of the college football landscape to start the season. In its explanation, the outlet wrote that voters are so confident in quarterback Bryce Young and the depth of the Alabama program that not even the departure of a record-tying six first-round NFL Draft picks could shake the current order of power in college football.
After re-upping with cult hero and Finals contributor Bobby Portis, the Bucks pivoted to replace the defense lost from losing P.J. Tucker to the Heat—and compensate for the likely absence of Donte DiVincenzo to begin next season—by signing free-agent forward Semi Ojeleye from the Celtics. Ojeleye is a former second-round...
