Brady comes in ahead of Rodgers, Ryan, Carr as early favorite for MVP

Brady comes in ahead of Rodgers, Ryan, Carr as early favorite for MVP

According to Bovada, Tom Brady is the favorite to win this year's MVP award. Just as a reminder: He'll be 40 when the season begins. 

Brady was in the running for last season's MVP but he was beaten out for the award by Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan. Brady said before Super Bowl LI that Ryan deserved to be deemed "most valuable" for his performance in 2016. 

Days later, Brady took home Super Bowl MVP for the fourth time.

Behind Brady (4-to-1 odds) on Bovada's list of MVP favorites for 2017 are Aaron Rodgers (7-to-1), Derek Carr (9-to-1), Dak Prescott, Ben Roethlisberger and Russell Wilson (all 12-to-1). Ryan's odds at repeating as MVP, per Bovada, are 16-to-1. 

Brady has won two regular-season MVP awards over the course of his career (2007, 2010). 

 

Reports: Celtics engaged on Porzinigis trade talks but asking price is 'massive'

Reports: Celtics engaged on Porzinigis trade talks but asking price is 'massive'

In the hours leading up to the draft, the Knicks continue to talk to teams -- including the Celtics -- about a trade for Kristaps Porzingis but are seeking a "massive" return, according to multiple reports. 

RELATED: Would this monster haul land Porzingis?

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo's The Vertical reports that the Celtics are among several teams so far unwilling to meet the Knicks' price.

Knicks president Phil Jackson is said to covet Kansas forward Josh Jackson in the draft, who many have speculated the Celtics could take with the No. 3 pick. CSN Celtics Insider Sherrod Blakely, on the Toucher and Rich this morning, proposed a potential C's package of tonight's No. 3 pick, next year's Brooklyn pick, Jae Crowder and Jaylen Brown as a potential haul for Porzingis. 

Marc Stein of ESPN reports the Celtics "remain in pursuit."

But Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe and Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald are skeptical anything will get done:

Frank Isola of The New York Daily News says it's "the moon and two Brooklyn picks," i.e. the haul Blakely proposed - this year's No. 3 and the 2018 first-round pick from the Nets that the Celtics own from the Paul Pierce-Kevin Garnett deal, Brown and Crowder. Also, the Celtics taking on the remaining two years (at more than $18 million per) of Joakim Noah's contract from the Knicks could factor into the deal.
