Killexams : California attorney general investigating LA redistricting

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The former president of the Los Angeles City Council resigned from public office Wednesday, three days after a recording surfaced of her making racist remarks in a meeting that is now the subject of a state investigation.

Nury Martinez, the first Latina to hold the top post on the council, announced her decision in a press release following a groundswell of outrage and calls for the resignations of her and two other council members involved in the conversation recorded last year.

Martinez made racist remarks about the Black son of a white councilman and other crude comments.

Her resignation statement did not address those comments, though in words directed at her daughter she said she had fallen short of expectations recently and added: "I vow to you that I will strive to be a better woman to make you proud.”

The announcement was made several hours after Attorney General Rob Bonta said he would investigate Los Angeles’ redistricting process that the three council members discussed with a labor leader in which they schemed to protect Latino political strength in council districts.

Martinez had stepped down as president Monday while still holding onto her council seat. Her decision to supply up her seat came as President Joe Biden was due to arrive in Los Angeles a day after he condemned the remarks and called on all three council members — Martinez, Kevin de Leon and Gil Cedillo — to resign.

Bonta, a Democrat like the three council members, said his investigation could lead to civil liability or criminal charges, depending on what is found.

“It’s clear an investigation is sorely needed to help restore confidence in the redistricting process for the people of LA,” he said.

Bonta spoke in Los Angeles while the council tried unsuccessfully to conduct business nearby amid the uproar that exposed City Hall’s racial rivalries. Those involved in the leaked conversation were all Latinos, while Bonta is the first Filipino American to hold the top law enforcement job in the nation’s most populous state.

The council reconvened Wednesday, possibly to censure the three members, but it was unable to do business because a crowd of about 50 protesters drowned out the acting president chanting slogans such as, “No meeting without resignation.”

A minimum of 10 out of 15 members necessary for a quorum had assembled, but the meeting was adjourned when one left. None of the three embattled council members showed up.

“Who shut you down? We shut you down!” the raucous crowd cheered as the lights were being turned down.

Acting Council President Mitch O’Farrell said that with no sign of anger subsiding, he didn't think the council could resume its work until all three are gone, which he said is inevitable.

“For Los Angeles to heal, and for its City Council to govern, there must be accountability," he said in a statement. "I repeat my call on Councilmembers de Leon and Cedillo to also resign. There is no other way forward.”

The council cannot expel members — it can only suspend a member when criminal charges are pending. A censure does not result in suspension or removal from office.

In the recorded conversation, Martinez called council member Mike Bonin a “little bitch.” She described the behavior of his Black son on a parade float when he was 2 as “parece changuito,” or “like a monkey,” the Los Angeles Times reported Sunday.

At another point on the hourlong recording, Martinez called indigenous immigrants from the Mexican state of Oaxaca ugly, and made crass remarks about Jews and Armenians.

Martinez made history in 2019 when she became the first Latina elected to the council presidency and described herself as “a glass-ceiling shattering leader who brings profound life experience as the proud daughter of working-class immigrants” on her website. She is the daughter of Mexican immigrants and was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley.

The discussion with a powerful Latino labor leader, who has since resigned, centered on protecting Latino political power while redrawing council district boundaries. The once-a-decade redistricting process can pit one group against another to gain political advantage in elections.

Jessica Levinson, a Loyola Law School professor who previously was a member of the Los Angeles City Ethics Commission, said she did not see evidence in the recordings that would prompt criminal charges, although Bonta left open that possibility.

However, she said a probe could force redrawing council districts even though the current maps are being used to choose new council members next month.

“It is so rare to have audio where … it gives the impression that they’re explicitly drawing lines on the basis of race,” Levinson said. “If in the end we determine these lines were illegally drawn, there needs to be a remedy for that, even though practically ... it’s a disaster.”

Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer has called for creating an independent commission to draw redistricting maps.

“It should be clear to everyone by now that if you leave in the hands of elected officials the power to determine their own political districts, this is a recipe for conflict of interest and it is an invitation to backroom deals,” Feuer said.

The Los Angeles Times reported that the recording was posted on the social medial site Reddit by a now-suspended user. It is unclear who recorded the audio, who uploaded it to Reddit and whether anyone else was present at the meeting.

ETHICAL HACKER TRAINING

ETHICAL HACKER TRAINING

With 50% Vacancies in US Cybersecurity Workforce, New Certified Ethical Hacker Training Framework Will Teach Trainees How to “Hack”

EC-Council’s Certified Ethical Hacker program, used by many government agencies, is the gold standard for ethical hacker training. This model will train the new supply of cybersecurity professionals”

— Jay Bavisi

TAMPA , FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 7, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ --

EC-Council, the leading global cybersecurity certification body, has announced the release of its flagship Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) version 12 program, and plans to train up 100,000 new ethical hackers worldwide within 5 years to address the severe shortage of Certified Ethical Hackers across the globe.

Known for the de-facto global standard in building ethical hacking skill since 2003, EC-Council’s new CEH Version 12 program will be based on an entirely new learning framework incorporating a novel Learn, Certify, Engage, Compete methodology to create a new breed of skilled ethical hackers.

“The United States faces a severe shortage of skilled cybersecurity professionals today, putting companies, government agencies, infrastructure, and Americans themselves at great risk,” said Jay Bavisi, Founder and CEO of EC-Council Group. “EC-Council’s Certified Ethical Hacker program, mandated by many government agencies today, is the gold standard for ethical hacker training, and the new learning model will help train up our supply of cybersecurity professionals with real skills and experience.”

A latest report by Cybersecurity Ventures pointed out that the gap of unfilled cybersecurity positions has grown by 350% between 2013 and 2021, with a current cybersecurity job vacancy rate of nearly 50%, according to CyberSeek, a project supported by the US Department of Commerce’s National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE). This shortage of available talent has real world consequences. According to a latest report from Fortinet, almost 80% of breaches were due to skill gaps that exist in organizations around the globe.

Bavisi added “Cybersecurity jobs evolve very fast, and we need professionals that have a broad range of skills that can be deployed in the real world,” “The new four-phase Learn, Certify, Engage Compete learning framework makes the CEH program the first program of its kind to actually take trainees beyond knowledge and have them put their skills to practical use.”

CEH today is relied upon by the US Department of Defense and other government agencies and used in 7 of the Fortune 10, 47 of the Fortune 100 within many cybersecurity functions, making it a de facto standard both in the public and private sector. The Certified Ethical Hacker program has been used by law enforcement, defense and Fortune 500 companies since early 2000. The Pentagon has embraced the CEH program as part of its defense workforce skill development program since 2010.

With the new version, it has been completely updated as part of the Learn and Certify methodology to match the cybersecurity challenges that cyber professionals face today. With the addition of Edge, Fog, Grid computing and the MITRE ATT&CK framework among others, CEH version 12 incorporates hacking techniques of the newest operating systems including Windows 11 and Server 2022, covering over 3500 cyber security tools, 519 Attack techniques, and over 220 distinct hands-on cyber exercises.

Candidates pursuing CEH Version 12 will now have access to the training program which incorporates comprehensive instruction and hands-on labs, followed by a simulated ethical hacking engagement to apply their skills in a live cyber range environment that emulates a mid-size target organization with four immersive, self-driven hacking assessments lasting 4 hours each which will require them to hack the organization in order to test their newly acquire skills from the program with a methodology called Engage.

Once the applied skills are mastered, candidates will be greeted with 12 months of global hacking competition under the Compete methodology of the new CEH learning model. Candidates will see monthly skill enriching competitions, leaderboards, and detailed assessments of their performance in each competition setting. Building global Ethical Hacker Challenge Leaderboards, aspiring professionals will compete for top ranks among ethical hackers across the world with dynamic challenges covering everything from Malware to Service Exploitation, Web Application Attacks, to SCADA and ICS systems that control everything from power grids to water supply systems of cities across the world.

Killexams : Mayor fails in last-ditch effort to stop Lafayette Council investigation into drainage work

A last-ditch effort by Lafayette Mayor-President Josh Guillory to avoid a City Council investigation of his administration failed Tuesday.

The council voted unanimously to transfer $100,000 for an audit and investigation into questionable drainage projects and whether Guillory benefitted in any way from city-parish projects.

Prior to the vote, Guillory said he electronically transferred to council members over the weekend answers to 18 questions the council requested in June after news reports surfaced of problems with drainage projects, three of which are in state and federal court.

Guillory at the time suggested the council hire an auditor to get answers because his staff was too busy preparing the proposed 2022-23 budget to compile the answers.

On Tuesday, Guillory's Deputy Chief of Staff, Jamie Angelle, displayed binders in the council meeting room, supposedly containing more than 3,500 pages of documents in response to the council's questions. Guillory said his accounting and public works departments shut down for days so staff could focus on responding to the council's questions.

The mayor-president said he hoped by providing the answers the council would not spend $100,000 in taxpayer money on the investigation.

Lafayette City Coucilwoman Nanette Cook attends a meeting of the Lafayette City and Parish Councils Tuesday, March 3, 2020, in Lafayette, La.

Council Chairwoman Nanette Cook said the council will provide its investigators with Guillory's responses and said it's doubtful the full $100,000 will be needed for the investigation.

Councilman Andy Naquin, Guillory's biggest supporter on the City Council, said the investigation is needed to clear up questions for the public and to clear Guillory's name. 

"We want to make sure that Josh Guillory is above everything that they've thrown at you," Naquin said.

City Council member Andy Naquin speaks during a town hall meeting with Protect the City Committee appointee Mark Pope to discuss deconsolidation on Thursday, June 17, 2021, at the Robichaux Recreation Center in Lafayette.

Several residents asked the council to conduct the investigation, including Susan Gillette, president of Bendel Partnership, representing more than 30 family members who own more than 300 acres of farmland on the Vermilion River that Guillory seized through the quick-take expropriation process to build detention ponds. The project is one of three tied up in court.

Gillette said the expropriation was "nothing but a power wielding unproven money dump." Gillette said she prays the City Council is "successful in uncovering who is gaining from this poorly planned and badly executed project and we strongly suggest you look start with Guillory, his contractors and engineers."

Lafayette resident Jan Swift asked the council and administration for transparency. When she asked CAO Cydra Wingerter for a copy of the more than 3,500 documents the administration produced in response to the council's 18 questions, Swift said Wingerter told her it would cost more than $3,500, $1 per page.

Guillory's administration recently began charging $1 per page to transmit public records electronically. Two news organizations, The Acadiana Advocate and The Current, filed a lawsuit Monday.

Lafayette Consolidated Government is in federal court over the removal in February of a spoil bank in St. Martin Parish. Lafayette quietly purchased property in St. Martin Parish and amended a contract for excavation work that resulted in millions of dollars for a project that wasn't bid. Without permission from St. Martin Parish or the Corps of Engineers, the contractor, Rigid Constructors, removed the spoil bank in the middle of the night.

Lafayette officials claim the spoil bank stopped the Vermilion River from draining into a St. Martin Parish swamp during high water times. St. Martin officials dispute the claim and say removal of the spoil bank may increase flooding for their residents.

Killexams : Josh Guillory scrambles to avoid council investigation ahead of final vote Tuesday

As Lafayette’s City Council prepared for a final vote on funding an investigation into Mayor-President Josh Guillory this weekend, Guillory’s administration scrambled − unsuccessfully − to avoid the inquiry.

Records obtained by The Daily Advertiser show Guillory’s administration put together a last-minute response last week to 18 questions submitted by City Council Chair Nanette Cook in June about a handful of drainage projects given to one contractor. 

The City Council was set to vote Tuesday on finalizing $100,000 to fund the investigation into Guillory’s administration that it unanimously launched at its last meeting on Sep. 6.

The response, which was emailed to City Council members at 5 p.m. Saturday comes after months of stonewalling from Guillory, who claimed that Lafayette Consolidated Government staff was too busy to respond to the council’s concerns. 

Guillory initially claimed his Finance Department was too busy to answer the council’s questions this summer because of LCG’s annual budget process.

The first-term mayor-president said Tuesday his administration had to essentially shut down for days to compile the records, but, the primary documents delivered to the council Saturday were created on or after Tuesday, Sep. 13, file data shows, with some created as late as 4:37 p.m. on Friday, Sep. 16. 

Josh Guillory:Lafayette mayor says his equipment company has no conflict of interest with public work

Guillory, who in June suggested the council hire an outside firm to get the answers to its questions, made a show of urging the council not to approve funding Tuesday by having his Deputy Chief of Staff Jamie Angelle dump a pile of 3,500-page binders full of documents on a table in the council auditorium before the vote. 

“You can see before you more than 3,500 sheets of paper,” Guillory said. “I know that every question is answered in great detail right here, so my hope is that we can avoid spending $100,000 in taxpayer money to reproduce these.”

But the eleventh-hour attempt was not enough to dissuade the City Council from its investigation of Guillory as Tuesday's funding measure passed unanimously. 

“When we present these to our investigative team, I think that actually it’ll probably save some of that $100,000, so I appreciate that,” Cook told Guillory at Tuesday’s meeting. 

“But I believe we're going to go ahead and move forward.”

City Councilman Andy Naquin, perhaps Guillory’s closest ally on the council, said he supported the measure as a way to clear Guillory’s name and provide clarity to the public.

“We want to make sure that Josh Guillory is above everything that they’ve thrown at him, and this was one way to do it,” Naquin said.

“This is something I think that needs to be done just to get some clarity of what's going on,” he added. “I don't think we're going to spend anywhere near that $100,000.”

Killexams : 2022-23 Fantasy Basketball Mock Draft 2.0: The remix — who's up and who's down?

Click here for the original version of this mock draft

Editor’s note: Not all players will have accompanying analysis after their pick.

Without further ado, the first pick in the 2022-2023 fantasy basketball draft goes to …

1.01 Nikola Jokic – C, Denver Nuggets

No surprise here. Jokic is a fantasy basketball cheat code after posting a historic 27.1 points, 13.8 rebounds, 7.9 assists, 1.3 threes and 2.4 stocks  (steals plus blocks) per game with 58/34/81 shooting splits last season. He had the highest single-season Box Plus/Minus (BPM) in NBA history and is the unanimous first-overall pick here.

1.02 Joel Embiid – PF/C, Philadelphia 76ers

Coming off his best statistical season and playing a career-high 68 games, Embiid will be the focal point of a fantasy-friendly Sixers offense. As one of the most dominant big men in the league, he finished fourth in the NBA in double-doubles with 2.7 stocks on the defensive end. He should have no issues replicating a top-three performance on a per-game and totals basis if he can play at least 60 games this year.

1.03 Kevin Durant – SF/PF, Brooklyn Nets

Durant finished second on a per-game basis in 2021-22, and he’ll continue to see a 30 percent usage rate this season. I expect the Nets to finish top-10 in Pace and Offensive Rating, and KD will lead the way. He checks every box for fantasy basketball.

1.04 Giannis Antetokounmpo – PF/C, Milwaukee Bucks

Giannis is the only player in NBA history to average at least 25 points, 10.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.0 block in multiple seasons, and he’s done it four years in a row. He finished 10th on a per-game basis last season, but an uptick in three-pointers made while shooting over 72% from the free-throw line will help justify drafting him here.

1.05 Luka Doncic – PG/SG, Dallas Mavericks

Luka Magic is in effect. Yeah, he’s known to turn the ball over at a high rate and miss a ton of free throws, but I’m buying his numbers after the Kristaps Porzingis trade. 31.3 points, 9.5 rebounds, 8.1 assists with 3.9 threes and 1.0 steal. He’s ripe for an MVP-like season.

1.06 Jayson Tatum – SF/PF, Boston Celtics (Original Pick: No.7)

I moved Tatum up in my latest mock draft because I think he’ll be more valuable outside of scoring and threes than Stephen Curry. He’ll command a higher usage rate, shoots a higher percentage from the field, and can check every box, similar to Kevin Durant.

Original take: Still only 24 years old, Tatum put up career-highs in points, rebounds and assists last year with a 32% usage rate. DAWG.

1.07 Stephen Curry – PG, Golden State Warriors (Original Pick: No.6)

The 2022 Finals MVP and four-time champion annually anchors the points, threes and free throw percentage categories in fantasy basketball. I project Curry’s minutes and usage will remain in the 30s as the centerpiece of one of the best teams in basketball.

1.08 Tyrese Haliburton – PG/SG, Indiana Pacers (Original Pick. No.9)

Haliburton moves up because Harden looks passive on offense. While he’s still a first-round pick, I’m moving Harden lower (as you’ll see below) as he’s becoming more of a facilitator at this stage in his career.

Original take: If you don’t know, now you know. I’ve seen Haliburton selected in the top five in industry expert drafts, but I’m comfortable grabbing him in the top 10. I’m teetering between Haliburton and LaMelo Ball in this spot, but the former is a good bet to average the most assists per game this year and score over 20 points per night with solid peripherals. In 18 games without Malcolm Brogdon last season, Haliburton tallied 18.6 points, 10.1 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 2.3 threes and 1.8 steals with 50/46/89 shooting splits. Breakout!

1.09 Damian Lillard – PG, Portland Trail Blazers

Lillard was 13th on my draft board, but he gets a substantial boost after Harden falls, LaMelo Balls ankle injury and Karl-Anthony Towns’ recovery from an illness. Lillard is healthy and has a better team, so fantasy managers should feel comfortable selecting Lillard as a top-10 pick.

1.10 Karl-Anthony Towns – PF/C, Minnesota Timberwolves (Original Pick. No. 11)

Towns gets a slight boost here from pick 11 as he’s back on the court and played well in his only preseason appearance. Now, Rudy Gobert was in street clothes, but Towns looks back to form despite the reported weight loss due to his illness — nineteen points with six rebounds and six assists in his preseason debut.

Original take: The Timberwolves’ frontcourt suddenly got crowded after they traded for Utah Jazz All-Star center and three-time Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert this offseason. Gobert’s presence should slide KAT to a true-stretch four, which has risks and benefits. He finished eighth on a per-game basis last year, but I’d expect his rebound numbers to drop slightly with a boost in made threes. KAT is accustomed to playing with an offensively limited frontcourt (Taj Gibson, Jarred Vanderbilt), so I’m not overly concerned about Gobert being in town. He should still be able to collect at least two stocks and be the best-shooting big man in the league. Forty-one percent from beyond the arc last year and 40% for this career, just sayin’.

1.11 James Harden – PG/SG, Philadelphia 76ers (Original Pick, No. 8)

My previous take had Harden “squarely in the top-10” conversation, but from what I’ve seen in the preseason, Harden is closer to last year’s version than the Harden of old. Still, he’s a first-round player for his cross-categorical contributions.

Original take: Harden’s decision to make less and return to Philly on a two-year deal shows he’s ready to ball. The hamstring injury that’s plagued him for two seasons is behind him, and he’s reportedly in great shape heading into this season. He was the only player in the NBA to post over 20+ points and 10+ assists per game in ’21-’22 and finished 15th on a per-game basis despite changing teams midseason and playing on a bum leg. A bounce-back should put him squarely in the top 10 in fantasy basketball.

1.12 LaMelo Ball – PG/SG, Charlotte Hornets (Original Pick: No. 9)

A sprained ankle will cost the dynamic point guard the first couple of weeks of the regular season. He’s moving down a few spots merely because of the injury. He should still be in line for another standout, All-Star-level season.

Original take: LaMelo Ball enters his third NBA season looking to build off career-highs in points, rebounds, assists, threes made, and FT%. He’s also among the league leaders in steals. The loss of Miles Bridges might decrease his passing numbers after accounting for 23% of Ball’s assists in ’21-’22, but there’s still plenty of opportunity to see a 30% usage while filling up the box score alongside Terry Rozier.

2.01 Devin Booker – SG/SF, Phoenix Suns

The Suns seem like they’re going through it, but I don’t think it’ll have much bearing on Devin Booker’s production this season. He’s in his prime and an improved playmaker who’s also a walking bucket.

2.02 Kyrie Irving – PG/SG, Brooklyn Nets

He’ll play more than 29 games this year, and the Nets new “big 3” looked great in Wednesday’s matchup versus the Bucks. Uncle Drew will get his, scoring-wise, but there’s still upside in him as a distributor and rebounder at the position. His high efficiency and sneaky steals make him an early second-round pick in my book.

2.03 1.15 Trae Young – PG, Atlanta Hawks (Original Pick. No. 12)

My suspicions are trending in the right direction, as Trae Young’s assists were not what we’ve come to expect in latest years. Granted, it’s the preseason, but I think Dejounte Murray will continue to eat into his assists despite being one of the best scorers in the league.

[Try Yahoo Fantasy Plus for free to get premium basketball tools]

Original take: Trae Young has a new backcourt mate in All-Star guard Dejounte Murray, but he should still be one of the best fantasy guards this upcoming season. He’s a volume scorer who ranked fourth in usage rate last year at 34.4. I expect Hawks head coach Nate McMillan to stagger Young and Murray’s minutes at the point but also supply Young the chance to work more off-ball to create better looks on the perimeter. He should still boast substantial fantasy numbers without much offense around him and Murray.

2.04 Kawhi Leonard – SG/SF/PF, Los Angeles Clippers

While this may seem high for a player coming off of injury, Kawhi is one of the best two-way players in fantasy while sporting elite shooting percentages. Paul George admitted that Kawhi is the alpha for the Clippers, and despite being load managed at times, he’s one of the best on a per-game basis in fantasy basketball.

2.05 Dejounte Murray – PG/SG, Atlanta Hawks

He might be better than Trae Young in fantasy this season. I’m here for another monster season, live from the A.

2.06 Anthony Davis – PF/C, Los Angeles Lakers

Will he play center or not? Not sure that it matters much for fantasy considering he just needs to STAY HEALTHY. Davis was a top-12 player on a per-game basis last season before getting injured so going back to the well. He’s too talented to go beyond the first 18 picks.

2.07 Paul George – SF/PF, Los Angeles Clippers

The run on perennial All-Stars continues. George is the second option of arguably the best roster in the Western Conference. He might take games off here and there, but PG, similar to Kawhi Leonard, is an exceptional two-way player. If he can cut down on his turnovers and Excellerate his shooting from the field, he could return to first-round value this year.

2.08 LeBron James – SF/PF, Los Angeles Lakers

The King is back and ready to make yet another run for a title. It helps that his teammates are healthy, and while his scoring will likely take a dip, he’s one of a handful of players capable of a triple-double every night.

2.09 Anthony Edwards – SG/SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

You’ll likely have to pay up for Ant-man, but he is undoubtedly in breakout territory. He’s well-positioned to make the jump into an All-Star this year. He’s a great source of points, steals, threes and his athleticism makes him a solid rebounder and blocker at his position.

2.10 Domantas Sabonis – PF/C, Sacramento Kings

Drafting a player from the Sacramento Kings this early may feel odd, but Sabonis is one of fantasy basketball’s most versatile big men. He won’t do a ton defensively, but he’ll be a reliable source of points, rebounds, assists and FG% as a second-round pick.

2.11 Fred VanVleet – PG/SG, Toronto Raptors

Minimal competition in the backcourt, plus he’ll likely be top five in minutes played. He’s a perfect selection when punting field-goal percentage (pair with Luka Doncic, perhaps?) but also will be among the league leaders in threes, steals and FT percentage.

2.12 Bam Adebayo – PF/C, Miami Heat

His assists are down since Kyle Lowry arrived, but he’s attempting more threes in the preseason than he has in his career. He is a nice grab here for his defensive stats and double-double potential.

3.01 Donovan Mitchell – PG/SG, Cleveland Cavaliers

Mitchell finished in the top 30 in per-game value last season and top 50 the year prior. The Cavs are deep, but he’ll be the primary scorer on one of the most fantasy-friendly teams in the league. I’m expecting his points to dip, but he’ll still be one of the better guards of fantasy.

3.02 Cade Cunningham – PG/SG, Detroit Pistons

One of my breakouts, so grabbing him as an early third-round pick is the way to go.

3.03 Pascal Siakam – PF/C, Toronto Raptors

Siakam is a stat stuffer who will finish in the top five in minutes played. He’s an ideal fit for any fantasy managers interested in punting blocks, rebounds, and FG%.

3.04 Rudy Gobert – C, Minnesota Timberwolves

3.05 DeMar DeRozan – SF/PF, Chicago Bulls

3.06 Ja Morant – PG, Memphis Grizzlies

3.07 Darius Garland – PG, Cleveland Cavaliers

He’s got the sauce, plus he’s an exceptional passer and facilitator who can score at will. He and Donovan Mitchell can thrive together and should make for one heck of a dynamic duo in fantasy. I’m still expecting him to be one of the top distributors but provide points, threes, steals and an elite FT percentage in category leagues.

3.08 Chris Paul – PG, Phoenix Suns

3.09 Jimmy Butler – SF/PF, Miami Heat

3.10 Bradley Beal – SG, Washington Wizards

3.11 Nikola Vucevic – C, Chicago Bulls

3.12 Zion Williamson – PF, New Orleans Pelicans

Zion tweaked his ankle in his last preseason game, but Pelicans HC Willie Green and Zion both said that “he’s doing fine.” I’m confident he is still worthy of being selected in the first three rounds.
