Former Cat Anthony Davis, Pelicans Agree To Max Extension

6232928_G

“Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans have agreed on a five-year extension worth more than $140 million.

Davis tweeted: ”NOLA, I am here to stay! Just getting started” shortly after free agency opened late Tuesday night, and a person with knowledge of the details confirmed the agreement to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal cannot yet be signed.

The 22-year-old Davis is entering the final season of a four-year contract he signed after being drafted first overall out of Kentucky in 2012. He had until Oct. 31 to accept the offer or could have become a restricted free agent next offseason.

Davis averaged 24.4 points, 10.2 rebounds and 2.9 blocks this season. The exact value of his extension, which includes a player option for the final year, can’t be determined until the salary cap has been set next week.

The Pelicans have made no secret of their plan to build around the 6-foot-10 Davis, who is faster than most players his size, can score from inside and outside, and changes games defensively with his shot-blocking and rebounding.

He has been named an All-Star twice in his first three pro seasons. He also won a gold medal with the U.S. Olympic team in 2012 shortly after winning a national title with Kentucky, and led the Americans to another gold at the Basketball World Cup last summer.

Next season, he’ll be playing for new Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry, who has said he intends to introduce a faster-paced offense with Davis as the focal point. Gentry, who recently won an NBA championship as an assistant with Golden State, gained additional familiarity with Davis during the first round of the playoffs, when Davis averaged 31.5 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks in four games against the Warriors.

”We’re going to play a lot faster and give (Davis) an opportunity to be in the open court,” Gentry said last week. ”He is our best player and a lot of things are going to be built around him. I think he’s a real versatile player.”’

Laura Bassett of England Scores winning goal for opposing team

World Cup Soccer Ball

With the score tied at 1-1, Japan was pushing for a late winner to prevent 30 minutes of extra time. Nahomi Kawasumi played a cross into the box from the right side and defender Laura Bassett—far from a household name here—lunged to intercept it. Facing her own goal from 15 yards out, she caught the ball with her right foot and sent it looping into England’s net off the crossbar.

Had it come at the other end, Bassett’s goal would have been a contender for strike of the tournament.

“It was a horrible moment, but you just have to look at how the team has supported her to understand that she’ll be able to get over it,” Sampson said.

If there is a more unfortunate way to lose a World Cup semifinal, no one has found it yet. The distinction could belong to England for a long time. This country knows a thing or two about heartbreaking tournament exits.

Reds down Minnesota 11-7 last night

Cincinnati_Reds

The early innings of last night’s Cincinnati/Minnesota game saw a flurry of runs from both teams. The Reds eventually held off the Twins, 11-7 to win the opening game of the interleague series. The Reds had been swept by the Mets and scored only four runs in the past three games, but built a 9-1 lead through three innings last night. Eugenio Suarez had a two run double, and Joey Votto hit a two run single against Alex Meyer. Every single position player had at least one hit in the game, including Tucker Barnhardt who went 4 for 5. Game 2 of the series gets underway tonight at 7:10pm at Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati. Anthony DeSclafani will get the start for the Reds, while Phil Hughes will start for Minnesota.

Dwayne Wade Decides Not To Pick Up Miami Option

wade

Dwayne Wade has played his entire NBA career with the Miami Heat, but his days in South Beach could be coming to an end. The All-Star and Three-Time NBA Champion decided yesterday not to pick up his option with the team and will become a free-agent tomorrow. The former Marquette star was scheduled to make $16.1 million next season. The Heat and Wade have been at a crossroads concerning his contract and the 33 year old has left around 27 million on the table in past free agency talks, helping bring Lebron James and Chris Bosh to the team in the past. Wade now wants to be compensated for those sacrifices. Losing the face of the franchise would be a huge blow to Heat President Pat Riley, who saw Lebron James leave the team last year to return to Cleveland. Luol Deng decided to exercise his option and remain with the team. Wade is believed to talk with the Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks, Dallas Mavericks, and Chicago Bulls. He will also likely talk with the Heat, who will try to keep him on the roster.

Kyle Busch Returns to Victory Lane at Sonoma

Kyle Busch

Kyle Busch made a huge step towards joining this year’s Chase for the Sprint Cup by winning on the Sonoma road course yesterday in California. The driver of the #18 Joe Gibbs Toyota came in for tires on the last caution and blew by leader Jimmie Johnson to pick up his first win of the season. The race also saw the first ever 1-2 finish for Busch and his older brother, Kurt. Kyle Busch missed the first 11 races of the season after breaking his leg in the season opening XFINITY Series race at Daytona. It was the first time in 46 races that Busch won a Sprint Cup race. Busch won for the 30th time in his career and 2nd at Sonoma. Clint Bowyer finished third, followed by Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano. The top ten was rounded out by Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kasey Kahne, Ryan Newman, and Sam Hornish Jr. Jeff Gordon finished a disappointing 16th in his final race at Sonoma. Next week, the series heads back to Daytona for the 4th of July night race.

nba-draft2

As expected, former UK star Karl Anthony Towns was selected as the #1 overall pick in last night’s NBA Draft, going to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Towns joins John Wall and Anthony Davis as three of the last six #1 overall picks to come from the University of Kentucky. In what some considered surprising, the Los Angeles Lakers passed on Duke’s Jahil Okafor, selecting Ohio State guard and Louisville native D’Angelo Russell with the #2 pick. Okafor went third to the Philadelphia 76ers. As for the rest of the Commonwealth players selected, UK’s Willie Cauley-Stein was selected 6th by the Sacramento Kings. The Utah Jazz selected Kentucky power forward Trey Lyles with the 12th pick, and UK point guard Devin Booker followed as the Phoenix Suns selection with the 13th pick. The Boston Celtics selected Louisville point guard Terry Rozier with the 16th pick. Louisville power forward Montrezl Harrell went 32nd to the Houston Rockets, while Kentucky point guard Andrew Harrison went 44th to the Phoenix Suns.

Cincinnati_Reds

The Cincinnati Reds are liking it more and more when Gerrit Cole is on the mound for the Pittsburgh Pirates. They won for the third straight time against the Pirates pitcher this season, 5-2 last night at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. Marlon Byrd knocked a two-run homer in the first inning and Mike Leake kept the Bucs to two runs and eight hits in his seven innings on the mound. It was his seventh consecutive win against Pittsburgh. The Pirates are 11-1 when Cole starts against any other team, but Cincinnati seem to have his number. Tonight, A.J. Burnett will start for Pittsburgh while Tony DeScalfani will get the ball for the Reds. Tonight’s game gets underway at 7:05pm at PNC Park.
