Semi Ojeleye, Bucks agree to one-year contract

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.
