Good morning, New York/New Jersey sports fans! The 2011 NBA Draft will be held tonight, meaning New York Knicks and New Jersey Nets fans will be on pins and needles all day wondering what their teams will do.
Here at SB Nation New York we have, of course, been running a series of previews looking at what the local teams might do. Check out all of that coverage at our NBA Draft Hub.
There are also lots of juicy Knicks' trade rumors to digest.
Now, let's look at the rest of the regional sports scene.
Yankees Trade Rumors: Why Jose Reyes Won't Be A Yankee: New York columnists and radio talking heads are blabbering away about how the Yankees should go get the New York Mets shortstop. This seems like great talk-show fodder, but in reality it seems like a trade that will never happen.
Yankees, Reds Split Doubleheader: Jorge Posada helped the Yankees win the first game with a clutch two-run homer, but the Yanks were routed in the second game.
New York Mets' Ike Davis May Be Done For The Year With Ankle Surgery: Turns out the first baseman has more than just a bone bruise. Oh, and third baseman David Wright is headed for an MRI on his back today. With the Mets' luck, who knows what that will show.
Report: Flyers To Host Rangers In 2012 Winter Classic: This is sort of unofficially official. The NHL has not announced it yet, but it's been reported all over the Inter-Google. So, it has to be true. Right?
