The management of Kotoko has denied reports that a foreign coach, Thomas Muller is in the country and he is set to be named as Technical Director of the club.Some media reports have since Friday linked the coach, who was spotted with a board member of the club at the Kumasi Airport to Kotoko. But speaking in an interview with the club’s website, Communications Manager of the Kumasi giants, Kwaku Ahenkorah was emphatic that, the foreign trainer has nothing to do with Kotoko.“Those reports are far from the truth. We didn’t bring him and he’s also not here because of Kotoko. As far as we know, Dr. Kwaku Frimpong of Champion Divine Clinic brought him. They are business partners. Therefore reports about the coach coming to Kotoko should be ignored” said the club’s spokesman.However, the club’s management added that they have no such intention and that, those reports shouldn’t be given any attention.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

“In keeping with NBA and team safety protocols, there will be no group workouts during this phase of return to play, and strict protocols have been designed to ensure this initial level of access will take place in a safe, controlled, and healthy way,” the Raptors said in a statement.Raptors to prepare for a resumption to the 2019-20 @NBA season in Fort Myers, Florida.Details » https://t.co/Dghg9gaRiZ pic.twitter.com/wGMyIHe5I2— Toronto Raptors (@Raptors) June 22, 2020Group workouts will only begin once teams have reported to the NBA campus at Disney World.The Raptors (46-18) were second in the Eastern Conference prior the COVID-19 crisis, behind the NBA-leading Bucks (53-12). The defending NBA champion Raptors flew to Florida on Monday to begin their preparations for the planned 2019-20 season restart.The Raptors will be based in Fort Myers until they enter the NBA campus at Walt Disney World Resort in early July for the remainder of the season.The NBA is planning to resume its campaign next month at Disney World via a 22-team format, after the league was suspended in March because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Nueva Ecija warehouse making fake cigarettes raided, 29 Chinese workers nabbed Sea turtle trapped in net freed in Legazpi City Garcia, Rios set for WBC welterweight title elimination bout “I mean I’m here for a reason and obviously Philly chose me for a reason, and I’ve spoken to Brett (Brown) a lot when I was hurt and he wanted me to run the team and be the point guard,” the Australian said. “So I know he trusts me and has faith in me, and for myself I know I definitely trust and believe in myself.”Same with Kuzma, even though he came into the league from Utah with far less fanfare after being taken with the No. 27 pick, which belonged to Brooklyn and was traded to the Lakers. He’s gone on to average nearly 16 points and join Hall of Famers Jerry West and Elgin Baylor as the only Lakers rookies with three straight games of 25 or more.“It’s pretty cool any time you’re mentioned with guys that are Hall of Famers or very important to this game’s history,” Kuzma said.“I kind of knew I was going to play well,” he added. “If you don’t have that confidence then you shouldn’t be playing really.”More important than just playing well, they’ve helped their teams have success. The 76ers have won five straight and look like a playoff team after a few dismal years. Utah is even hotter, winning an NBA-leading 11 in a row, and Mitchell became the first rookie to lead his team in scoring during a streak that long.The rookie leader with 19.6 points per game acknowledges getting distracted earlier this season by thinking too much about rookie of the year and paying too much attention to what his classmates were doing after not being taken until the No. 13 pick.“So I kind of shut all that out and just said I’m here to contribute to my team in any way that I can and help in any way that I can,” he said.Once he did, his game — and the Jazz — took off.The league’s rising stars will likely take off when they share the spotlight Friday night. MOST READ Those two guards head up a deep rookie class and might be neck-and-neck in this year’s NBA rookie of the year race in which both are worthy of winning.“I’m going to throw it out there, I like the whole Grant Hill and Jason Kidd co-rookie of the years,” Miller said. “I’ll throw that out there now because I think both are well-deserving of it.”Hill and Kidd shared the award in 1995 and might enter the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame together this summer.Perhaps Simmons and Mitchell will be similarly linked years from now.They will be together Friday night when the NBA’s best first- and second-year players compete in the Rising Stars in Los Angeles to kick off All-Star weekend.ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

But the rosters for the game, which pits a U.S. team against the World, show just how deep the league is with young talent.There’s Simmons’ teammate Joel Embiid, who joins him on the World squad, while the U.S. has Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, who helped Boston lead the East most of the season. Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma will play for the U.S., though the hometown Lakers lost out on a third player when Lonzo Ball had to pull out because of injury.Dennis Smith Jr. of Dallas, who like Mitchell will compete in the Slam Dunk contest, also will suit up for the Americans.The rest of the rosters:— U.S.: Kris Dunn (Chicago), John Collins and Taurean Prince (Atlanta) and De’Aaron Fox (Sacramento). Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon of Milwaukee was picked for the game but is injured.— World: Lauri Markkanen (Chicago), Dario Saric (Philadelphia), Buddy Hield and Bogdan Bogdanovic (Sacramento), Jamal Murray (Denver), Domantas Sabonis (Indiana), Frank Ntilikina (New York) and Dillon Brooks (Memphis).The youngsters are winning games and admirers with skills well beyond their years. Clippers coach Doc Rivers raved about Simmons and Embiid — and said not to forget the second-year Saric — after his team was beaten in Philadelphia last week.“I’m still very impressed sometimes,” he said. “I’ve still (had) great first impressions.”The only guys who don’t seem impressed are the players themselves.Not Simmons, the No. 1 pick of the 2016 draft from LSU who had to sit out a year with a foot injury but expected to hit the ground running once he could play.

The Greek housing market posted the second-worst performance among European Union (EU) countries in the third quarter of 2013, as according to Bank of Greece data prices fell at an annual rate of 9.2 per cent following five years of decline. Eurostat announced this week that Greece was only second to new EU member Croatia in terms of the drop in house prices. At the same time a slowdown was observed in the rate of decline across the eurozone, with the average fall coming to just 1.3 per cent in Q3 compared to an annual slide of 2.4 per cent in the second quarter. Across the EU the drop amounted to no more than 0.5 per cent. The Greek property market picture is unlikely to change in the next few months, even though the total price decrease has reached 32 per cent across the country since the start of the financial crisis. Bank of Greece data published in a recent report points to an average waiting time of 12 months from when properties are put on the market to the actual sale, compared with just five months in 2009. The situation in the market is rapidly deteriorating, as it was only two months earlier that the country’s central bank had estimated the average waiting period before a house is sold at 10 months. Similarly, on average, buyers are able to negotiate 21.5 per cent off the asking price, while in early 2009 the difference was just 12.6 per cent. The Bank of Greece noted that the market continues to be dominated by excessive supply and a considerable decline in demand, which should be attributed to the major increase in unemployment and the reduction in households’ disposable incomes, the rise in property taxes, the instability of the tax framework and the lack of cash flow given banks’ very strict loan terms.
