The Lakers are destined to have a high pick in June's NBA draft, but the franchise won't know where it is  picking until the draft lottery on May 20. One of the top prospects in the draft, Kansas center Joel Embiid, received some disappointing news on Monday. According to the Associated Press, Embiid has a stress fracture in his lower back, which will knock him out of the Big 12 tournament and could sideline him for the first week of the NCAA tournament. Assuming he suffers no setbacks, the Jayhawks may need to survive a couple of rounds without their starting center.

A former attorney who once handled some of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's toughest legal cases was convicted Tuesday of stealing nearly $2 million from the transit agency by submitting phony invoices and pocketing settlement money. James Vincent Reiss, who also was convicted of stealing more than $1 million from other clients, pleaded no contest to two felony counts of grand theft. He is expected to be sentenced to a decade in prison.

The magnitude 6.9 earthquake that rattled Northern California on Sunday was the state's largest temblor in nearly a decade. But it caused no damage or injuries. That's because the quake was centered 50 miles off the coast of Eureka and occurred at a depth of "10 miles beneath the Pacific seabed," according to the U.S. Geological Survey. By the time the seismic energy reached the shore, it had dissipated significantly. The USGS said the North Coast felt only moderate to light shaking.

It took several years and a stop in New York and a more recent move to Columbus, but Marian Gaborik finally became a Los Angeles King. Gaborik was interested in the Kings a long time ago, and Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi had toyed with the idea of bringing in the forward with game-breaking potential. Timing is everything and it all finally came together shortly before Wednesday's trade deadline.
