There was some thought that Alex Len's stock could have gone up even higher had the former Maryland center been able to attend private on-court workouts for a number of NBA teams picking at or near the top of next week's NBA draft. It now appears that the 7-foot-1 Len could become the No. 1 pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers despite being sidelined since early April after undergoing surgery to repair a partial stress fracture in his left ankle. At least one mock draft has Len going ahead of former Kentucky center Nerlens Noel.

Randy Edsall and the Maryland football coaching staff face the same challenge every year: How do you get a top prospect from Maryland or Washington, D.C., to stay home rather than choose a bigger, more prestigious football program like Alabama, Penn State or Florida? Maryland's staff has landed highly coveted local prospects like wide receiver Stefon Diggs and offensive lineman Damian Prince in recent years, and NBA star LeBron James' decision last week to return to his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers could help the Terps' pitch to local recruits.

When LeBron James announced to a national television audience Thursday that he was forsaking home and hearth to pursue his hoop dreams in Miami, he immediately shot to the top of the list of the greatest villains in Cleveland sports history. And why not? The kid who grew up in nearby Akron was offered more money to remain in his home state and try again to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to their first NBA title, but chose instead to jump town and rub that decision in the faces of his longtime fans on an unprecedented one-hour ESPN announcement special.

Gordon Gund is the CEO of a venture capitalist fund, the former principal owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers and a member of the Kellogg Co.'s board of directors. He has also been blind for more than 40 years. On Saturday, Gund announced that his family plans to give $50 million or more in matching gifts to the Foundation Fighting Blindness, a Columbia-based nonprofit that he co-founded. "Our family is committed to finishing the job we helped start, and we hope this Challenge requires us to match as much as is needed to fast-track progress for promising treatments from the lab to clinical trials," Gund said in a statement.

WASHINGTON - On paper, those guys wearing the purple and gold uniforms certainly look like the Los Angeles Lakers and, goodness knows, they have the gaudy championship rings - three of them - to suggest they are the genuine article. But through the first week of the new season, these Lakers, who arrive in Washington for their annual meeting with the Wizards tonight, don't much resemble the team that laid waste to the NBA the last three years. The proof of that lies in the fact that Los Angeles, which lost its first two games of the season for the first time since 1990, was actually beaten the other night by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Poor Carmelo Anthony. He got what he wished for last season and was traded by the Denver Nuggets to the New York Knicks. Ungodly gobs of money and recognition was awaiting the Baltimore native's arrival in New York. But something awkward happened on his way to Gotham. The team is playing uninteresting, uninspired basketball. He's probably feeling a little wave of regret. The Knicks, who were to become a top-tier NBA team by his addition, have been nothing more than middle tier mediocre this disappointing season.

News item: The Ravens face the surprising Tampa Bay Buccaneers late Sunday afternoon at M&T Bank Stadium. The Buccaneers and Ravens both are 7-3, but the Ravens are favored by about a touchdown. My take: Excuse me if I'm not too concerned about this one. The Buccaneers have played three elite teams so far this year, and their offense didn't show up for any of those games. News item: The Orioles made a serious run at free agent Victor Martinez — offering a reported $48 million over four years — but he chose to sign with the Detroit Tigers.

Alex Len was 13 years old, a gangly teenager whose body had been shooting up a startling pace from a young age. As he practiced gymnastics at a local school in the small, rural coal-mining town in Ukraine where he lived, Len was motioned over by a basketball coach walking by the room. "He told me, 'You don't belong there,'" Len recalled with a smile one afternoon last week. The coach invited him to practice with the basketball team. Having been told he was too tall for gymnastics and soccer, Len soon embarked on a journey that could reach a remarkable crossroad Thursday night, some seven years later and thousands of miles from where he lived with his mother, older sister, grandparents and an aunt.

Baltimore Sun reporter Don Markus and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. Is Alex Len better off not being the top pick in the 2013 draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers and instead going a few spots down to Charlotte, Phoenix or New Orleans? Don Markus: Being the No. 1 overall pick certainly carries a status that follows a player through an NBA career and could ultimately carry a stigma if things don't go well.

Commissioner David Stern said Monday that LeBron James was "entitled" to decide to leave the Cavaliers for the Heat. Stern said he would have advised James to tell the Cavaliers ahead of time of the decision and he would have advised against making the announcement a made-for-TV event. Stern also said he fined the Cavaliers $100,000 for owner Dan Gilbert's statement that called James' decision "narcissistic" and "cowardly behavior." •The Magic have agreed to a deal with free agent Quentin Richardson , a person familiar with the negotiations told the AP. Richardson's signing means the Magic likely will part with free-agent small forward Matt Barnes . They also have until Friday to decide if they want to match the $19 million, three-year offer the Bulls made for restricted free agent J.J. Redick . … Udonis Haslem signed a five-year deal to stay with the Heat worth around $20 million, roughly $14 million less than he could have received if he accepted more lucrative offers from the Mavericks and Nuggets.
