U.S. basketball star Brittney Griner will remain in Russian custody through at least July 2 after her detention was extended for a third time. That’s according to Russian state-run media. The report gave no timeline for Griner’s trial, but cited a top Russian diplomat as saying that she will not be considered for detainee swaps until her case has been investigated. The 31-year-old WNBA center was arrested on suspicion of drug smuggling after Russian airport authorities claimed in February to have found cannabis products in her luggage.
