Leonard On Three-Year Clips Deal, Cardinals Take Thompson In Supplemental, Big 3 To Wimbledon Semis

Grace Higgins | July 11th, 2019

News of Kawhi Leonard’s deal to join the Los Angeles Clippers last week set off ripples inside the whole league. Not only was Leonard going back, but fellow California native Paul George would be joining him. More details of the deal came out on Wednesday, and according to sources, Leonard will be signed on for three years. The deal is worth $103.1 million in that stretch, a far cry from what he could have made guaranteed. However, it’s thought that the move is being made so that he and George can be free agents again come 2021, thus allowing the pair to make their next decision together. Both of them will undoubtedly, barring injuries, make a lot of money come that time and will have a great shot at landing titles in the mean time.

The Arizona Cardinals took the lone pick of the 2019 NFL Supplemental Draft on Wednesday, and with it they selected Jalen Thompson, a safety out of Washington State. The selection means that the Cardinals will forgo their fifth round pick in next year’s draft, a consequence of making the decision to bring in the junior. The reason for the Supplemental Draft to take place is to give players who had been ruled ineligible to return to the field in college by the NCAA a chance to go somewhere and play professionally. The NCAA had just ruled he would not be able to play in his senior season, meaning he was given the opportunity to move up immediately. In the last two seasons, he made 140 tackles and had six interceptions total.

It’s a very familiar looking group of semi-finalist that will be partaking at Wimbledon in the Men’s Tournament this year, with Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal, and Novak Djokovic all confirming their place in the last four. In one of the two semis, it will be Nadal vs Federer, with the two set to meet for the first time at the All England Club in over a decade. However, it will be their 40th meeting all-time, so there’s nothing really novel about it. Djokovic will be a massive favorite to make the Finals as he will take on #23 ranked Roberto Bautista Agut.
