Adrian Wojnarowski: Projected top-5 pick Jaren Jackson, Jr. signs with agents Austin Brown and Leon Rose of CAA Sports for representation in 2018 NBA Draft. twitter.com/therealjnari_/…
Jackson is pegged among the top-10 in almost every mock draft, as high as No. 3 overall by both ESPN and Sports Illustrated. “Spartans, this was not an automatic decision,” Jackson wrote. “And honestly, thank you for making it one of the toughest decisions I’ve ever had to think about. While playing in the NBA was always my dream and desire, I did not know the opportunity would present itself in quite this way. I’m ready to live my dreams and I cannot pass it up.”

Sagar Trika: Woj: Cleveland would love to package Kevin Love + #8 and get something on draft night, but that package likely won’t get them the star player they’re hoping for. Notes Kevin Love’s value is down and the Brooklyn first round pick is not as good as Cleveland had expected.
Sagar Trika: Woj: LeBron James’s decision won’t be quick and will likely stretch into July. Implication here is that it can’t be an opt-in-and-trade, as the player option deadline is June 29. Keep an eye on what he decides to do at the end of the month (a week from this upcoming Friday).
Mark Murphy: Stevens naturally wants Smart back: “Everybody in the building would tell you we would love to have Marcus back. Marcus has been great here – a big part of our DNA.”
