  1. Utah Jazz General Manager, Justin Zanik said  about trade rumors involving Donovan Mitchell :

“Change is inevitable in the NBA. I’m not trying to be cryptic or anything else, but Donovan is on our roster and he’s a very, very important part of what we’re trying to do. Things evolve in the NBA, so I couldn’t sit here and say anybody is untouchable. We’re trying to build a championship team, but there’s no intent there to trade Mitchell, at all.”

  1.  Atlanta Braves DH William Contreras has joined Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras as only the 5th pair of brothers to start in an All-Star game together. Contreras was voted in Sunday as a reserve by fellow players but has been selected to start because Philadelphia Phillies Bryce Harper, who was elected by fans, broke his left thumb on June 25 and remains unable to play. They will be the first brothers in the same All-Star Game since Aaron and Bret Boone in 2003.

For the first time since 2003, there's a pair of brothers in the #AllStarGame in Willson and William Contreras. This is awesome. https://t.co/4xMvCfCLsB pic.twitter.com/r7rZWO78P0 — MLB (@MLB) July 10, 2022
