The NFL announced today that late games during network doubleheaders will be pushed back to a 4:25 kickoff time, 10 minutes after the original time. This means the Bengals’ week 13 game at San Diego will now have a 4:25 est start time. Its the only Bengals game that has been affected by the new times.

 

The NBA Draft is set to take place on ESPN tonight at 7:30 pm EST, with Kentucky forward Anthony Davis locked into the #1 spot held by the New Orleans Hornets. After that, its anyone’s guess as to who will end up where, and there are plenty of rumors going on leading up to the draft.

 

The Sacramento Kings rejected the Houston Rockets’ trade offer that would have sent point guard Kyle Lowry and the 16th pick to the Kings for the #5 pick.

 

According to team sources, Duke guard Austin Rivers has received a promise from the Raptors at the *8 spot.

 

The Chicago Bulls are reportedly set on drafting Kansas point guard Tyshawn Taylor tonight with the 29th pick.
