Suns could consider absorbing Luol Deng’s contract in trade

The NBA offseason got a little more interesting with San Antonio Spurs small forward Kawhi Leonard reportedly wanting to be traded to the Los Angeles Lakers. Even the Phoenix Suns were among the teams rumored to inquire about Leonard’s status. However, that seems highly unlikely given the only assets they have to offer have already […] The post Suns could consider absorbing Luol Deng’s contract in trade appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Kawhi Leonard, Spurs reconciliation is still possible

Despite rumors of Kawhi Leonard seeking a trade in the near future, the San Antonio Spurs still have a chance to hash things out with the estranged star. Friday’s report of his unhappiness with the team and the feeling of “betrayal” are likely a campaign sparked by his camp, who has been the major...

Rumor: 0 percent chance Spurs trade Kawhi Leonard to Western Conference team

The San Antonio Spurs have seen their situation with All-Star forward Kawhi Leonard take another turn with him making it clear that he doesn’t want to remain with the team. This has put into the picture the possibility of moving him at some point over this upcoming offseason. According to Chris Sheridan...

Open Thread: Trading Kawhi Leonard- the Western Conference edition

Let’s take a look closer to home...and where The Klaw supposedly would like to be traded. Well, we had fun yesterday. There is a wide range of options out there. Although it looks as if most people think a trade with Boston is the way to go, there is no clear consensus on whether Kawhi Leonard would...

Zack Wheeler was there to see Brandon Nimmo’s first star turn

PHOENIX — Their long Mets journey began together way back in the summer of 2011 in the Florida heat. Brandon Nimmo, 18, had just signed with the Mets out of Wyoming American Legion ball as a first-round draft pick in mid-August. That was soon after the Mets had traded Carlos Beltran for Zack Wheeler, a...

Teheran returns with a vengeance against Padres as Braves take series with 4-1 win

Teheran returns with a vengeance against Padres as Braves take series with 4-1 win

Tyler Flowers hit a two-run homer, but Julio Teheran’s six no-hit innings stole the show. Last time out, Julio Teheran was roughed up by the Padres, allowing three homers in four innings. Showing sub-90 mph velocity, Teheran landed on the Disabled List. On Sunday afternoon, he returned with a vengeance, hurling six no-hit innings and collecting a whopping 11 strikeouts in his best start of the season. Showing renewed life with a fastball that hung around 92 mph (well above his season average, and faster than the average in his most amped-up start so far), Teheran carved up the San Diego...

Royals Rumblings - News for June 18, 2018

Are frustrations boiling over? Royals Rumblings - News for June 18, 2018 Rustin Dodd talks about how the Royals will handle Adalberto Mondesi. “I’m going to start him out kind of easy, three or four days a week,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “And then kind of go from there.” To juxtapose how the Royals dealt with Mondesi in the past with how they are handling him now offers a decent helping of cognitive dissonance. When he was barely 21 and had a mixed track record in the minors — when he was still going by Raul — the team pushed him to the big leagues. Now? Not so...

NFL’s best run-blocking offensive tackle on the Patriots’ roster, per PFF

NFL’s best run-blocking offensive tackle on the Patriots’ roster, per PFF

The advanced analytics website graded the veteran’s 2017 performance positively. The New England Patriots’ offensive line will look quite differently this year than the one the team fielded during Super Bowl 52. While the interior starters are still expected to be the same, the two tackle spots will no longer be manned by Nate Solder and Cameron Fleming: Long time left-side starter Nate Solder now plays for the New York Giants; Fleming left the team to sign a free agency contract with the Dallas Cowboys. While the left tackle spot is still up for grabs – both rookie Isaiah Wynn and...

Mariners give disappointing Father’s Day “gift”, lose 9-3

Red Sox are not a fun present All across the world today, families applied varying amounts of efforts to give their fathers something special. Some surely knocked it out of the park, getting Dad something far beyond his wildest dreams. Others had their hearts in the right place, but ultimately fell short in the “actual value” department of gift-giving. Fathers far and wide deployed their yearly acting routine, feigning excitement over macaroni art and hand-painted coffee mugs. The Seattle Mariners – a family in its own way – struggled to give an adequate gift. Losing big-time to...

Tigers 3, White Sox 1: Guaranteed Rate is becoming a guaranteed win

Detroit breaks out the brooms for their second road sweep of the White Sox this season. Blaine Hardy pitched 5 1⁄3 innings of one-run ball to lead the Detroit Tigers against the Chicago White Sox Sunday, completing the series sweep and extending Detroit’s winning streak to five games. With Francisco Liriano set to return from the disabled list this week, the Tigers are deciding whether to move the left-handed Hardy to the bullpen or carry a six-man rotation. But Hardy didn’t let uncertainty about his future distract him from the task at hand, scattering six hits with only a Matt...

Mark Canha saves the day for A’s, who beat Angels in the 11th

Mark Canha’s stamp was all over Oakland’s game against the Angels on Sunday. He gave the A’s an early lead. He tied the game at last possible moment, and he made a tremendous play in the field. With two outs in the ninth, Canha - who’d homered earlier in the game - plopped a single to center to send in Dustin Fowler, tying the game. The A’s won 6-5 on Jonathan Lucroy’s bases-loaded deep flyball single in the 11th inning. Canha provided the defensive highlight of the game in the 10th, racing from left almost all the way to center for a long drive...

Snake Bytes 6/18: Time to Cleanse

A quintessential D-backs win that didn’t end quite right. Mets 5, Diamondbacks 3 I attended this game with my brother and father-in-law (a Mets fan). We got our Hawaiian shirts of remarkable quality. The concession stand lines were long in an obscene way. Perhaps the top level wasn’t used to so many fans. But, it was the kind of game the D-backs know how to win. Maybe give up a run early, but squeak out a few runs and let the bullpen take it over. Somewhere there is a 27 outs cliche to declare. Is it time to worry about Boxberger? During the first three hours of the game I...

MLB is moving toward NFL model that John Moores touted as Padres owner long ago

When he owned the Padres, John Moores displayed a stubborn case of NFL envy. Moores, in chats on the record, said the football league’s business model made great sense, notably the alignment of franchises. For example: Moores told the Union-Tribune between 2000 and 2002 that Major League Baseball...

The season that was for the Penguins big center Player Details: Riley Sheahan, center Age: 26 Contract: Restricted Free Agent, arbitration eligible (due a $2.075 million qualifying offer) Resume (via hockeydb): Sheahan is the classic “big reliable center”. Since breaking into the league he’s played 79, 81, 80 and 81 games this season. He’s a guy you can count on to answer the bell and play every night that certainly won’t wow you, but will be consistent and do small things right all over the ice.

Monday Curds: A few new Packers are focusing on the ‘foot’ in football

And at least for today, neither of the players we’re talking about is a kicker or punter. Since players only touch the pigskin with their feet a few times each game, the name of the sport — football — seems an odd choice. For a pair of new Green Bay Packers, however, the offseason has very much been about their feet, even if they’re not supposed to be coming into contact with the ball. Sure, rookie punter JK Scott has been booming punts in spring practices, but we’ll worry about that another day. Instead, it’s footwork, speed, and agility that are the focus of today’s Cheese...
