  • What offseason? A week after Finals, the NBA in overdrive

    first_imgA dizzying series of moves came on Tuesday. Howard got traded by the Atlanta Hawks to the Charlotte Hornets, who acquired the eight-time All-Star center for a package that included Miles Plumlee and Marco Belinelli.And Lopez — another center — is leaving Brooklyn and headed to the Lakers, part of a deal that has D’Angelo Russell and Timofey Mozgov going to the Nets.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutThat leaves the Lakers with a clear need at point guard, a problem they will likely rectify on Thursday when they presumably will take Ball with the No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft. It was a big move for the Lakers in another way; Mozgov is still owed $48 million over the next three seasons, while Lopez’s contract will expire after next season.Howard will be playing for his third team in three seasons following a disappointing homecoming in Atlanta. He signed a three-year, $70.5 million deal with Atlanta and then sat out the fourth quarter in two of six playoff games in the Hawks’ first-round loss to Washington. 1 dead in Cavite blast, fire “Let the madness begin,” Portland guard CJ McCollum said. “Draft week is always the most interesting time of the year.”Madness is right.Barely a week after the Golden State Warriors won their second NBA championship in three years, the rest of the league is maneuvering like mad.Along with the trades, confirmed by people with direct knowledge who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither deal was formally announced, Gasol opted out of his $16 million deal for next season with San Antonio — but intends to sign a new multiyear deal with the Spurs that will reduce his annual salary but give him more security, and presumably give his team a chance to add a big-time free agent this summer. Wade told the Bulls he will take his $23.8 million deal for next season, a decision he had until next week to make.And Minnesota parted ways with Nikola Pekovic, waiving him in what could be the last act of a career that was derailed by foot and ankle problems over the past three seasons.

The Celtics said they think the player they take at No. 3 would likely have been the player they used the No. 1 pick on anyway, so they called it a win-win move.Then came Monday night’s news that the Cleveland Cavaliers were parting ways with general manager David Griffin after three straight trips to the NBA Finals, a move that James clearly was not happy about.

Police say golf great Tiger Woods was arrested on a DUI charge in Florida. He tested positive for marijuana and other drugs after the arrest. APFORT LAUDERDALE, Florida, United States – Tiger Woods had the active ingredient for marijuana, two painkillers and two sleep drugs in his system when he was arrested on a DUI charge earlier this year, a report released Tuesday by prosecutors said.Police in Jupiter, Florida, released the report less than a week after the golf superstar agreed to enter a diversion program to settle his driving while intoxicated charges.

Officers had found him unconscious in his Mercedes-Benz, which was parked awkwardly on the side of the road and had damage to the driver’s side. It’s not clear how he damaged the car. Officers checked the area but didn’t find that he had hit anything.Woods issued a statement Tuesday saying he had been trying on his own to treat his insomnia and pain from his fourth back surgery, which he underwent in April.

Under the plea deal, prosecutors would drop the DUI charge, which is a more severe charge than reckless driving. In the diversion program, Woods will spend a year on probation and pay a $250 fine and court costs. He would also have to attend DUI school, perform 50 hours of community service and attend a workshop where victims of impaired drivers detail how their lives were damaged. Since the program began four years ago, almost 2,400 defendants have enrolled, according to the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office.If Woods completes the program, he can ask a judge to expunge the reckless driving conviction.His 79 PGA Tour victories and 14 major titles both rank No. 2 all-time. He has not competed since February because of his back injury and is not expected to return this year. His last win was in August 2013.Woods said his back is improving.“I recently spoke to my surgeon and he’s very pleased with how my fusion is healing. I’m right on schedule. I’m now doing some light lifting, riding a stationary bike and putting a little,” he said.

The game was settled in the first four overs in which Doug Bollinger and Albie Morkel combined to leave Bangalore at 12-3. Nobody else crossed 15 as Bangalore folded for 123 in the 17th over.Manish Pandey was the seventh out after making 52 (44b) but the game long gone from Bangalore’s grasp.Raina’s 48-ball innings had six sixes and five fours, and his 81-run collaboration with Murali Vijay (41, 32b) set the innings up.Bangalore’s chances were spoilt by injuries to two vital players at crucial junctures.Dale Steyn, Anil Kumble’s in-form pacer, took a nasty blow to his head which bounced off the turf after he had taken a fine catch running back to dismiss Mike Hussey.Steyn lay prone for a few moments after which he hobbled off the park, taking no further part in the game. This left only part-timers at the disposal of Bangalore, who suffered at the hands of the rampaging Raina.Towards the end of the innings, Virat Kohli, who’d already been suffering from a back strain, aggravated his problem as he fell forward taking a catch off Morkel’s bat.advertisementKohli did come out to bat, making 14. He was the fourth out, with the score on 37.Chennai will now face the winner of the Warriors vs South Australia game.last_img read more
