Leuzinger alum Jerry Evans Jr. makes most of Lakers workout

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- When opportunity knocks, you have to open the door. For Jerry Evans Jr., that door led him to El Segundo at the Lakers' practice facility.

PHOENIX -- For the fifth workout of their carefully orchestrated quest to optimize three first-round draft picks, the Suns decided to wing it. OK, so a couple of the under-20 prospects who attended Monday'€™s pre-draft workout at US Airways Center are marketing themselves as point guard conversions.

A look ahead to the 2014-15 season for Duke Basketball

After a disappointing season in 2013-14, things are looking up for the Duke Basketball team.  Duke should be better next season despite losing four seniors, since none of them had much of an impact.  The Blue Devils are adding four great freshmen to their team, which should make for a better season, maybe even a great one.
