Former NBA big man Deyonta Davis has signed with a Taiwanese team, the Taoyuan Leopards, according to Sportando. Davis, an early second-round selection in the 2016 draft, last appeared in the NBA during the 2018/19 season, when he saw action in nine games with Atlanta.
We have more from around the basketball world:
- Former NBA forward Marcus Georges-Hunt has signed a G League deal and will play for the Hawks’ affiliate, the College Park Skyhawks, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic tweets. Georges-Hunt spent some time in the Chinese Basketball Association after playing in the NBA. He played a combined 47 games for Orlando and Minnesota from 2016-18.
- The Athletic’s Josh Robbins and John Hollinger put their heads together and made their selections for the All-Star starters and reserves in both conferences. Some of the notable players who didn’t make the cut included James Harden, Jaylen Brown, Paul George and Damian Lillard.
- Auburn’s Jabari Smith Jr. is the first player off the board in the latest mock draft from Sports Illustrated’s Jeremy Woo. Paolo Banchero and Chet Holmgren are the next two selections with Wisconsin guard Johnny Davis elevating to the No. 4 spot.

The top 4 in no order should be Jabari Smith, Chet Holmgren, Paolo Banchero and Jaden Hardy. They are by far the most talented players with the highest ceilings for me.
Going down the draft I really like Patrick Baldwin too.
Please, keep us posted
My early mock would be
1. Orlando – Chet Holmgren
2. Detroit- Paolo Banchero
3. Houston – Jabari Smith
4. Blazers – Jaden Hardy
5. Indiana – Jaden Ivey
6. NO – Johnny Davis
7. OKC – Kendall Brown
8. San Antonio – Bennedict Mathurin
9. Kings – Keegan Murray
10. OKC (Clippers) – Marjon Beauchamp
Orlando add a super promising young centre. In the past have done well picking centres…
Banchero and Cunningham would be such a solid young duo of future superstars.
Smith goes to Houston as they don’t need Hardy.
Blazers fall in the back half of the season and manage to get Hardy who is a steal for them. Future of the franchise.
Indy get the best player available.
NO get best player available and good fit at SG.
OKC add the best forward available.
Spurs get Bennedict, who many have higher on the boards.
Kings get Murray a quality young forward.
Clippers pick falls back dramatically with no PG or Kawhi and OKC benefit getting the best available player.
