VanVleet inspires local young athletes with basketball camp

During his off-season , Raptors point guard Fred VanVleet is enjoying some spare time back in his hometown of Rockford, but also making sure to give back to the same community that helped shape who he is today.

Sports highlights for the day.

At the 2017 U.S. High School Bowling National Championship, it was the Harlem Huskies who shined brightest, with the girls team taking the National Title, and the boys team finishing in second place in the country.

From coaching legend Misty Opat of Rock Valley's Women's Basketball team, to the rising young boxing champion and Auburn senior Angel Martinez, a full line-up of Rockford sports stars came together Thursday night to share the story behind their paths to success.

Two people with knowledge of the situation tell The Associated Press that the Chicago Bulls have traded three-time All-Star Jimmy Butler and the 16th overall pick to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the No. 7 overall draft pick.
