49ers bring back Antone Exum
Defensive back Antone Exum became a free agent after wrapping up the 2017 season with the 49ers, but he won’t be joining a new team ahead of the 2018 season.
The 49ers announced on Wednesday that they have signed Exum to a one-year contract.
Aldridge. The absence of Leonard coupled with a putrid performance in the postseason last year makes him a marked man. In Game 1 of the 2017 conference semifinals, Aldridge scored a career-low four points and finished with a plus-minus of minus-36, which registered as the worst by a Spur in the postseason under Gregg Popovich. In the 43 minutes after Leonard limped off the floor last year with an ankle injury in the conference finals against Golden State, Aldridge posted more turnovers (eight) than made baskets (seven). Second-year point guard Dejounte Murray falls into this category, too, after wrestling the starting job away from future Hall of Famer Tony Parker.
The big news in the sports world today will be that Justify, who also won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, came in first to win the Triple Crown. Second place is an afterthought outside the football world.
But for those of us who care more about football than horse racing, we’ll recognize 6/9 as a big date for Gronkowski.
Aside from Antetokounmpo and Parker, Eric Bledsoe has a chance to show he can play with more consistency in the most pressurized games. The Bucks invested this summer’s first-round pick to acquire Bledsoe from Phoenix. Now he needs to prove he was worth the investment.
The Bucks flat-out gave this game away by making several terrible decisions in the waning seconds and snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in a 128-125 overtime loss to the Nuggets.
The Young Bucks like to run, none more so than Antetokounmpo, who has recorded 57 dunks in transition this season, most in the NBA. Among those dunks, 31 have been made while contested, also most in the NBA this season.
