Chicago fans boo when Bears draft pick Mitch Trubisky photo shown on JumboTron at United Center. Turns to a few cheers when they realize he's actually here.

Mitchell Trubisky was just shown on the video boards inside the United Center, and a chorus of boos initially greeted him. Wow.

The pick of QB DeShone Kizer changes the feel of this draft. The Browns have a young quarterback to groom and help grow to go with three talented players taken in the first round. There were points of last season that the combination of Myles Garrett and Kizer would have thrilled people. There's no reason it shouldn't be a reason for excitement now.

Do the Browns finally have their answer at QB? (0:46)

Isaiah Thomas missed all five 3-pointers he took in the first half but the rest of the Celtics made nine of their 14 attempts (64.3 percent). Celtics led by as much as 17 and still up double digits at halftime. Halftime: Celtics 54, Bulls 41.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Very interested to see how QB DeShone Kizer develops under Hue Jackson. The talent, size and arm strength is there with Kizer. He flashes on the tape. And Jackson is one of the best teachers in the NFL.

Browns get their QB in DeShone Kizer

Cleveland waited until the 52nd pick to take the Notre Dame signal-caller, who has Ben Roethlisberger-like size and strength, but Mel Kiper Jr. cautions against throwing him onto the field as a starter right away.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

The Browns took their shot at a quarterback when they took Notre Dame's DeShone Kizer in the second round. Kizer has physical skills — size, a strong arm — but he needs work on fundamentals and in understanding an NFL offense. He's an intriguing pick given his potential, but he needs to work to realize that potential.

Nick Friedell ESPN Staff Writer 

Dwyane Wade has been a complete non-factor early. 0/3 from the field and continues to look disinterested defensively. Obviously, Bulls have to get more from Wade if they want to have any chance tonight.

Chris Forsberg ESPN Staff Writer 

If Jimmy Butler's knee is sore he didn't show it in first quarter. Butler's 10 points allowed Bulls to hang around after Boston went up double digits early. Avery Bradley with nine points for Boston. End of 1st: Celtics 30, Bulls 23

Green cruises to big dunk (0:16)

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Expected the Bears to go with a defensive back at No.45, but general manager Ryan Pace continues to draft on upside. TE Adam Shaheen has a massive frame at 6-foot-6, 278 pounds and high 4.7 speed. Raw talent at the D2 level.

Cubs 3B Kris Bryant homered in his first career at-bat at Fenway Park, launching a 422-foot long ball over the Green Monster on Friday.

Bears land huge target in Adam Shaheen

Mel Kiper Jr. looks at Chicago's new tight end, whose combination of size, athletic ability and speed justifies his second-round selection despite coming from Division II Ashland.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears address tight end depth with Ashland's Adam Shaheen at No. 45 overall. Chicago did sign Dion Sims in free agency, and still have veteran Zach Miller under contract, but the club felt thin at the position last year after trading Martellus Bennett to NE. Shaheen is 6-foot-6, 278 pounds, but was an accomplished pass catcher in college. He'll make things interesting for Mike Glennon/Mitchell Trubisky in the passing game with the mismatches he can create. But he could be another project, and the Bears already have tons of those.

Celtics open game with back-to-back-to-back 3s (0:26)

Craig Custance ESPN Senior Writer 

The Blackhawks send goalie Scott Darling to the Carolina Hurricanes for a 2017 3rd-round pick. This is good value for Chicago since Darling was likely leaving as an unrestricted free agent on July 1. Carolina gets an early window to negotiate a deal with Darling, the best free agent goalie available. It appears the Hurricanes are finally addressing their goaltending, a first step towards getting in the playoffs next season.

Bears are three picks away from making their 2nd round selection (45). Although several defensive backs are off the board, the Bears could target Connecticut safety Obi Melifonwu, who Chicago spent considerable time with at the Senior Bowl. The Bears have a clear need at safety, despite signing veteran Quintin Demps in free agency.
