Across somber verses, she laments how deeply she's in love, and how she can't seem to escape. Cabello also recently received Billboard Women in Music's Breakthrough Artist Award.

The Brooklyn Nets will release guard Sean Kilpatrick, reports The Vertical's Shams Charania. Philly had to surrender what may be a decent second round pick but makes good with Okafor, who they essentially refused to play for most of the past year as they tried to trade him.

"I would like for them to just send me somewhere where I can get an opportunity", Okafor told ESPN in November. He gives the Nets' offense an interior presence they've lacked, and should see plenty of usage once he's up to speed - remember, he's played just 25 minutes this regular season.
