The foot injury suffered by Kansas center Joel Embiid could dramatically alter the order of the first 10 picks in Thursday’s NBA draft.


Tom Izzo and Michigan State picked up what could be a very high-impact transfer Monday, when it was reported West Virginia's Eron Harris would be coming to play for the Spartans.


As far as NBA standards go, Gary Harris is considered short.

As far as his standards go, however, he'll be just fine.

Five years ago, the Bulls took a chance on an experienced power forward - Southern Cal's Taj Gibson - they knew could step in and contribute immediately, and it paid off.
