UEFA cancelled Norway's Nations League game in Romania because it could not travel after a COVID-19 case in the squad. The Steelers officially announced on Saturday morning that Big Ben has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Horford, 34, signed a four-year, $109 million contract with Philadelphia as a free agent last summer, as the Sixers hoped the combination of prying him away from their blood rivals, the Boston Celtics, as well as pairing him with Joel Embiid - whom he'd always been effective guarding as a member of the Celtics - would pay dividends.

Adams has spent his entire National Basketball Association career with the Thunder after being drafted 12th overall in the 2013 draft. 25 and 28. Including Wednesday's draft, Oklahoma City has stockpiled 17 first-round picks through 2026, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Adams' numbers were down this past season, averaging 10.9 points and 9.3 rebounds in the regular season. The Sixers get major cap flexibility by taking Green with just $15 million and one more season left on his deal. The five-time All-Star big man averaged 11.9 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 4.0 assists over 67 games (61 starts) with Philly last season.

Over the past two offseasons, the Thunder have gained extensive draft assets in exchange for Russell Westbrook, Paul George, Schröder, Paul and now, Green. He was traded to the Thunder earlier this week in a deal that sent Dennis Schroder to the Lakers.
