Tesla to close more than a dozen solar installation facilities: reportExternal Link

Tesla Inc. plans to close more than a dozen solar installation facilities across nine states, Reuters reported late Thursday. The closures had not yet been disclosed, but are part of the 9% workforce cuts announced last week, Reuters said. The solar cuts will affect facilities of the former SolarCity, which merged with Tesla in 2016. Citing company documents and sources inside Tesla, Reuters said 13 or 14 solar facilities would close in California, Maryland, New Jersey, Texas, New York, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Arizona and Delaware. About 60 solar facilities remain open. Tesla declined to comment on which facilities would close or how many jobs would be lost, Reuters said. Tesla shares slipped 4% Thursday, and dipped an additional 0.4% after hours.

Little drama at NBA draft, as Phoenix Suns pick Deandre Ayton first overallExternal Link

As expected, the Phoenix Suns selected Arizona center Deandre Ayton first overall in the NBA Draft on Thursday evening. Duke forward Marvin Bagley III went second to the Sacramento Kings, and Slovenian guard Luka Doncic went third to the Atlanta Hawks, though they reportedly arranged a trade with the Dallas Mavericks for the fifth pick -- Oklahoma guard Trae Young -- and a future first-round pick. With the fourth pick, the Memphis Grizzlies picked Michigan State forward Jaren Jackson Jr. Texas center Mo Bamba, who some had thought could be among the top three draft picks, fell to the sixth pick, by the Orlando Magic. The draft was being held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and was broadcast on Walt Disney Co.'s ESPN.
