ICYMI: The Nats have let great players go in recent years b/c there was someone else to build around. There's no "someone else" after Juan Soto, a generational star that our @jaysonst compared to Ted Williams. You don't trade Ted Williams. In @TheAthletic: bit.ly/3zmQUFH

Jamaican women in the 100M. Dominance!
If the Nationals are, indeed, thinking about trading Juan Soto after he turned down their latest offer, there's little chance it will line up with their self-described "retool." Any shot at a deal done will require both sides to give. In @TheAthletic: bit.ly/3zmQUFH
Fred Kerley. Seen. World champion.

Not your best day, @AmericanAir. Not your best day.
Taj Gibson will sign via the minimum salary exception. In his case, for a player of his long tenure in the league, the minimum salary is approximately $2.9 million. But only $1.8 million of his salary will count toward the Wizards' salary-cap figure. twitter.com/PrioritySports…

With Bradley Beal in the fold, how do he and the Wizards get the franchise among the NBA’s elite? It will require joint commitment from player and ownership beyond words. In ⁦@TheAthletic⁩: bit.ly/3nQTo8A

Bradley Beal was sober on Friday, as the Wizards officially announced his re-signing. It was the right tone. Washington is far from a contender, & Beal's new deal makes getting there harder. He and ownership now have to shrink that gap. In @TheAthletic: bit.ly/3nQTo8A
The Portland Trail Blazers and All-NBA star Damian Lillard are close to a two-year maximum contract extension, multiple sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. The new deal would take Lillard’s contract through the 2026-27 season.

In his opening remarks, Bradley Beal notes his happiness at getting his new deal – but notes the detainment of Brittney Griner, the Highland Park murders on July 4 and multiple shootings in his hometown of St. Louis since the start of the month.
Ted Leonsis starts the Bradley Beal presser by sending the organization's condolences to Japan and the Japanese people, after the assassination of former prime minister Shinzo Abe Thursday evening.
I know this is all about Banchero and Smith tonight, but Caleb Houstan… 👀👀
Dude had serious range:
ICYMI: Wednesday was a good day for the Commanders, as face of the franchise Terry McLaurin officially was back in the fold. If any franchise had to remind its fans that there are quality people still in the building, it’s Washington. In ⁦@TheAthletic⁩: bit.ly/3yMYNDZ

A new QB in Carolina: The #Panthers are acquiring former No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield from the #Browns for a 2024 conditional 5th-round draft pick, sources tell me and @TomPelissero. Deal is pending a physical. All parties split the financials to make it happen.

No show this week, as NBA World is on its collective way to Vegas for Summer League. So, re-racking last week's discussion w/ @ThompsonScribe & guest @jadande on "Hoops, Adjacent," as we re-think Steph's greatness, along with Kyrie discussion & my need to get into Formula 1: twitter.com/AthleticNBASho…
Happy 4th! The Nationals, going through a brutal 2022, will be sellers at the trade deadline. But will their deals include Josh Bell, who's having an All-Star caliber season – but who would bring a solid haul from contenders? In @TheAthletic: bit.ly/3IdJFCx
