P.S. … Congrats to Texas students Adam Karpel (veteran reader) and Alex Kagan (new reader) for winning our iPad Pro giveaway. ‘Hook em. The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup kicks off today at 12pm ET, with host France taking on South Korea. The U.S. doesn’t play until Tuesday, so we’ll do our in-depth team preview next week. For now, a brief overview of the tournament: Midway through the third period of Game 5, Blues center Tyler Bozak tripped Bruins center Noel Acciari (above) … but no penalty was called. Seconds later, David Perron scored the decisive goal in a 2-1 victory (highlights). P.S. … I’m not saying it shouldn’t have still been a penalty, but does anyone else notice how much Acciari exaggerates the fall? He appears to spring himself off his right foot as if he’s doing a backflip into a pool. The Nets are trading guard Allen Crabbe and his $18.5 million contract to the Hawks, clearing salary-cap space to pursue two max free agents this summer, per ESPN. Why it matters: Celtics guard Kyrie Irving, who is expected to become a free agent, has given “every indication” to the Nets that he intends to sign with them. The bottom line: The Nets have two max slots, the Knicks have two max slots, the Clippers have a clear path to two max slots and the Lakers have one max slot plus assets to make a major trade. Buckle up. The Philadelphia Eagles have signed franchise QB Carson Wentz to a four-year, $128 million extension, the team announced yesterday. Joe McLean is the premier wealth manager of the NBA’s richest stars. He has clients in the NFL and MLB, too, but the “gobs are the biggest in the NBA,” writes NYT’s Devin Gordon. What he does: As Managing Partner at Intersect Capital, McLean’s job is not to negotiate his clients’ contracts (that’s the job of an agent), but rather, to “grow every dollar that comes in and track every dollar that goes out.” How it works: Intersect manages contracts worth $1.7 billion dollars for around 50 athletes, yet only employees 11 people. The idea is to provide them with intimate, white-glove treatment. This weekend marks the 10-year anniversary of the Angels selecting Mike Trout, a 17-year-old out of Millville High School in New Jersey, with the 25th pick in the 2009 MLB draft. How it happened: To understand how so many teams failed to realize that Mike Trout was, in fact, Mike Trout, ESPN’s Keith Law went to the best possible source: the scouts who saw him that spring. In their seven-year history, the Brooklyn Nets have only drafted one player with a Brooklyn Nets first-round pick. “During Ramadan, many people sleep through the daytime — the hours in which they are required to fast — and wake up a few hours before sundown, when they are free to break their fast,” Deadspin’s Salmaan Farooqui writes:
