Continued: Hartman: NBA draft memories from a different time

• Some time ago the Vikings bought a building from the Pohlad family adjacent to Winter Park for future use. Presently it is being rented out, but a lot of Vikings employees could be working in it in the near future.

• Vikings cornerback Chris Cook, who was acquitted in March of 2012 of charges of assaulting his girlfriend the previous October, has regained the respect of coach Leslie Frazier. “With my conversations [with Cook], I feel like he has grown up a lot,” Frazier said. “I think his teammates have really encouraged him and helped him along the way. We’ve got some real good leadership on this team but I do like where he is. Still, it’s something that he knows we always have to hold one another accountable, and we will continue to do that. You never want to thank anything for granted.”

• Joey King, the Eastview basketball player who is transferring to Minnesota from Drake, put up some outstanding high school statistics. King averaged 23.9 points and six rebounds, but he scored in double figures in 26 of his 29 games.

• Jeff Sorenson of Columbia Golf Course in Minneapolis qualified for the PGA Championship for the second time by finishing in the top 20 at the PGA Pro National Championship in Sunriver, Ore. Sorenson’s brother, Matt, was his caddie at the tournament.

• Former Gopher Drew Ghelfi, who was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers, made his professional debut Saturday and pitched a shutout inning with two strikeouts for the Brewers’ farm team in the Rookie Arizona League.

• Former Gophers pitcher T.J. Oakes is 7-5 with a 4.52 ERA for the Asheville (N.C.) Tourists, the Rockies’ farm team in the Class A South Atlantic League. He is 4-2 in his past eight starts including a complete-game three-hitter on June 21.

• With the verbal commitment of center Connor Mayes of Van Alstyne, Texas, the Gophers football team eventually will have three brother combinations, all offensive linemen: Connor and Alex Mayes, Ed and Tommy Olson of Mahtomedi and Luke and Kyle McAvoy of Bloomington, Ill.

Sid Hartman can be heard weekdays on 830-AM at 6:40, 7:40 and 8:40 a.m. and on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. shartman@startribune.com
