    Getty Cam Reddish is the subject of Lakers trade rumors. The Los Angeles Lakers are trying all they can to upgrade their roster for another title run, and it turns out a trade with the New York Knicks might be what works best for them. It’s no secret the Russell Westbrook experience didn’t pan out for the team, and if they can’t find another team willing to bring on the former MVP, they might have to run it back with him. That doesn’t mean they won’t be able to fill out the roster around him better as the Lakers of last year were made up primarily of aging veterans. NBA reporter Michael Scotto reports the Lakers are interested in former lottery pick Cam Reddish, and they nearly acquired him last season in a three-team deal. “The Lakers also have had interest in trading for Knicks forward Cam Reddish, who could also become part of a trade,” he reported. “Last season, the Lakers nearly acquired Reddish as part of a blockbuster three-team trade talks between the Lakers, Knicks and...
    Getty Could Randle really be shipped out of town? The New York Knicks are in the running for landing Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell, and if that happens then they might be able to flip a former All-Star in the process. With the Jazz listening to offers for Mitchell, the Knicks are expected to be the frontrunners in landing him as they have the best selection of young players and picks to offer. If the Knicks pull it off, the Los Angeles Lakers could emerge and take on Julius Randle in a reunion with their former draft pick. According to NBA insider Marc Stein, there is a real possibility this could happen and he said as much on a Spotify Live session. Transcribed by Twitter user RichStapless, Stein cites a “plugged in” source that says trade talks could begin.Randle Back to Lakers Marc Stein also reports that a "plugged in" source in the league informed him that if a Mitchell to New York trade goes down, the Lakers may engage the Knicks in a deal for Randle. Apparently, he's...
    The Kansas City Chiefs, looking to strengthen their roster, are bringing in a Pro Bowl pass rusher for a visit on July 27. The Kansas City Chiefs fell just short of making it to the Super Bowl for the third consecutive year this past season. This offseason, they saw talent leave, such as safety Tyrann Mathieu, cornerback Charvarius Ward, and defensive end Carlos Dunlap. It certainly did not help that the AFC has gotten unbelievably tougher this offseason. But, it appears that the team has set its focus on filling one of the voids on their defense. According to ESPN senior NFL insider Adam Schefter, the Chiefs are bringing in former Seattle Seahawks and Cincinnati Bengals pass rusher Carlos Dunlap for a visit on July 27.Chiefs bringing in Pro Bowl pass rusher Carlos Dunlap for visitThe Chiefs looked to fill the void left at the edge rusher position after Ingram left in free agency to sign with the Miami Dolphins.

    Getty Golden State Warriors center James Wiseman poses for a portrait during the team's 2021 media day. After winning last season’s title, the Golden State Warriors will look to defend their title next season. Key reserves like Gary Payton II and Otto Porter left for bigger paydays in Portland and Toronto respectively. Both players will be missed tremendously as they were key pieces that helped the Warriors win playoff games on the journey to their title. Although many of their key reserves left the Bay Area for bigger paydays, the core of the starting rotation remains intact. The Warriors’ young players will return and be relied on to take the next step and contribute to the rotation. Ownership and the front office are trusting this young core to be the next generation of Warriors to keep them relevant. Over the past season, the Warriors refused to trade their young players to strengthen their playoff rotation. The brass trusted that they could still contend for the title if they got healthy while keeping the young guys around so they...

    Getty Dennis Smith Jr. of the Dallas Mavericks. The Dallas Mavericks are going to have to find a way to replace Jalen Brunson’s production next year. Brunson decided to sign with the New York Knicks in free agency, leaving the Mavericks high and dry. With little money to spend, they may have to get creative. Spencer Dinwiddie will likely step into the starting role, as he played well for the Mavericks after being traded there at the deadline last year. In addition, second-round rookie Jaden Hardy has impressed during Summer League and could be ready to step into an immediate rotational role with the team. But the Mavericks are reportedly exploring another option, too. According to Dalton Trigg of DallasBasketball.com and Sports Illustrated, Dallas is expected to take a look at former Maverick Dennis Smith Jr. They will be attending his private workout in Las Vegas during Summer League. “Source tells DallasBasketball.com that the Mavs are expected to be in attendance for Dennis Smith Jr.’s private workout in Vegas,” Trigg tweeted.

    Getty The Lakers could pursue Magic center Mo Bamba (right). The Los Angeles Lakers may be looking to add a former top prospect to their frontcourt as the team is being linked to Orlando Magic free-agent center Mo Bamba. Orlando Sentinel’s Khobi Price reported that the Magic do not plan to tender Bamba an offer which would have made him a restricted free agent. Instead, the Magic will be unable to automatically match whatever offer the Lakers or other teams give Bamba, making him an unrestricted free agent. The Lakers are among the teams who are interested in Bamba, per Price. “The Magic not extending the qualifying offer doesn’t mean he won’t return,” Price wrote on June 29, 2022. “Orlando still has an interest in bringing Bamba back and is expected to work on negotiating a new deal when free agency opens. “…There’s also the possibility the Magic sign and trade Bamba to another team interested in him. The Toronto Raptors, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets, Miami Heat and Minnesota Timberwolves...
    Getty Kyrie Irving defending LeBron James. The Brooklyn Nets are trying to resolve the Kyrie Irving situation as best as they can, but it appears the situation is even trickier than they thought. The Nets are trying to work out possible sign-and-trade scenarios involving the former Boston Celtics star, but, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, only one team is interested in acquiring Irving that way – the Los Angeles Lakers. Reportedly, the Nets are not interested in what the Lakers have to offer. ESPN Sources: Outside of the Lakers, there are currently no known teams planning pursuit of sign-and-trades for Nets G Kyrie Irving. No sign-and-trades can be formally discussed until after 6 PM on Thursday. Brooklyn isn't believed to have interest in available Lakers packages. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 27, 2022 Because of the Anthony Davis trade from 2019, the Lakers have very limited assets to offer Brooklyn for Irving.

    Getty New York Knicks star Julius Randle defends Mo Bamba during a bout with the Orlando Magic. After Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors finished off the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the NBA Finals to win the championship, the NBA offseason is officially underway. And for the Brooklyn Nets, it could be one of the most important free agency periods in the history of the franchise. After losing to the Milwaukee Bucks and being swept by the Celtics in consecutive years, the Nets have yet to even make it to the conference finals in the Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant era. And with the Eastern Conference improving each season, every move they make this offseason will be pivotal. Where the Nets have struggled the last two seasons is finding any consistent rim protection, which was exposed in their first-round elimination by the Celtics. And with the uncertainty of where restricted free agent Nicolas Claxton will sign next year, Brooklyn will have to keep their options open at the center position. In a conversation with Eddie Gonzalez...
    Getty Lakers' Rob Pelinka and Darvin Ham The Los Angeles Lakers are interesting in acquiring Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Collin Sexton, according to Sam Amico of HoopsWire. Sexton becomes a restricted free agent this summer once the Cavaliers offer him his qualifying offer worth $7,228,449. As a restricted free agent, Sexton can sign an offer sheet with another team and then the Cavaliers would have 48 hours to match the deal or let the guard walk. “Anyway, there are so many things to consider here,” Amico wrote. “(Darius) Garland and Sexton share an agent. Garland became the face of the Cavs. The Cavs traded for Caris LeVert, who plays Sexton’s position. And Sexton is drawing plenty of interest — with a few league sources telling me even LeBron James‘ Lakers are interested. (That’s not happening, but explaining why is another full day of Dribbles.)” Amico doesn’t believe the Lakers have a chance to sign Sexton since the eighth overall pick from the 2018 draft is “probably looking for $18 million or more” annually and Los Angeles doesn’t have the...
    Getty Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll. The Seattle Seahawks may not have selected a quarterback in the 2022 NFL Draft or made a trade for a big name this offseason, but the team continues to be linked to available quarterbacks around the league. Most of the recent rumors surrounding the Seahawks have included a possible trade for Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield. However, with the Browns seemingly uninterested in making a trade before training camp, other names have started to come up in trade rumors. Sheena Quick, a Carolina Panthers beat writer for FOX Sports Radio 1340, added another name to the Seahawks trade rumors. She tweeted that former MVP quarterback Cam Newton has drawn interest from both the Panthers and the Seahawks this offseason. SEA and CAR are the teams with interest per source. — Sheena Quick (@Sheena_Marie3) May 30, 2022 This comes off the heels of a report from Jonathan M. Alexander with The Charlotte Observer, who wrote that the Panthers were still open to bringing back their former star quarterback. If a deal isn’t worked...

Now, one of those former Seahawks stars is interested in joining the team’s coaching staff.

    Getty Nick Kwiatkoski in coverage against Sammy Watkins. Among the first things that new Las Vegas Raiders general manager Dave Ziegler did upon landing the job was moving on from some overpriced linebackers. Back in 2020, the team signed Cory Littleton and Nick Kwiatkoski to sizeable contracts in an effort to solve their longstanding problems at linebacker. It quickly became apparent that they weren’t the answer. Littleton didn’t look like the same Pro Bowl-level player he was with the Rams while Kwiatkoski just couldn’t stay healthy consistently. Both of the linebackers ended up getting cut this offseason in an effort to add salary cap space. Coincidentally, they will now be playing in the NFC South. Littleton previously signed with the Carolina Panthers and now Kwiatkoski has decided to join the Atlanta Falcons, per Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network.

    Getty Patrick Mahomes during the January 30, 2022 AFC title game. The Los Angeles Rams may not be done with adding more offensive firepower at wide receiver — even after luring in Pro Bowl wide receiver Allen Robinson via free agency to team with Super Bowl 56 Most Valuable Player Cooper Kupp. And this wideout of interest already has familiarity with one past Super Bowl and league MVP: He was a 1,000-yard target for Patrick Mahomes not long ago.

    Getty Gordon Hayward, formerly of the Boston Celtics with Al Horford and Marcus Morris Sr. During his tenure with the Boston Celtics, Gordon Hayward never really got a fair shake of things. Within minutes of making his Celtics debut, Hayward suffered a horrific leg injury that saw him miss an entire season, and ever since then, he has been one of the most injury-prone players in the NBA. And now, he could be looking for another change of scenery. After the 2019-20 season that saw the Celtics lose in the Eastern Conference Finals to the Miami Heat, Hayward’s contract was up. He declined to pick up his player option, instead opting to enter unrestricted free agency (kind of). While the Celtics and Indiana Pacers were seen as the most likely suitors, the Charlotte Hornets swooped in at the last second and inked the forward to a four-year, $120 million deal. In two full seasons with the Hornets, Hayward has only appeared in 93 games. He has continuously been struck down with injuries, with the latest of the bunch...

    Getty The Patriots could sign former first-round pick Jabrill Peppers. The New England Patriots could be aiming to sign a former first-round draft pick. As reported by Field Yates of ESPN on Monday, March 28, the Patriots are hosting safety Jabrill Peppers for a visit. That’s rather notable because Peppers played for Patriots offensive assistant Joe Judge when he was the head coach of the New York Giants over the past two seasons. “The Patriots are hosting former Giants and Browns S Jabrill Peppers on a visit today, per source,” says Yates. “Peppers played for Joe Judge in 2020-2021, so there’s familiarity already.

    BOSTON (CBS) — Josh McDaniels and Dave Ziegler have been busy in their first few months with the Las Vegas Raiders. After signing a pair of now-former Patriots at the start of free agency, the duo reportedly has their eyes on another former New Englander. The Raiders are looking at making Stephon Gilmore their latest free agent pillage, according to Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review Journal. Vegas is “making a run” at the 2019 Defensive Player of the year as McDaniels and Ziegler look to boost the Raiders defense in an offensively gifted AFC West. Gilmore was traded by the Patriots in the middle of last season as the two sides engaged in a contract battle, with New England sending him to the Carolina Panthers for a sixth-round pick. The soon-to-be 32-year-old came down with a pair of interceptions in his eight games for the Panthers, and was named to the Pro Bowl for the fourth straight season and fifth time in his career. The Raiders signed Patriots free agents Brandon Bolden and Jakob Johnson on Wednesday when...
    The Denver Broncos may have finally found their quarterback: Russell Wilson.  The longtime Seattle Seahawks star has waived his no-trade clause and agreed to a new contract, in principle, with Denver, ESPN reported.

According to insider Jordan Schultz, the Steelers are one of multiple teams interested in the services of former No. 2 overall draft pick Mitch Trubisky. Trubisky is one of several notable quarterbacks who will enter free agency. The former Chicago Bears starter spent the past season as a backup to Josh Allen for the Buffalo Bills.

    Getty Goran Dragic vs Celtics If he has it his way Raptors guard Goran Dragic will make his way to the Dallas Mavericks sometime in the near future by either trade or buyout. That, according to Miami Heat insider Ira Winderman who wrote, “the sense is Goran works his way toward his preferred (and most viable) option of the Mavericks, to close out the season alongside Slovenian compatriot Luka Doncic.” Dragic has left the Raptors citing “personal reasons” after indicating before the season that he didn’t want to play for Toronto. Dragic appeared in just five games for the Raptors averaging 8.0 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 18 minutes per game. The report is noteworthy because of the close relationship between Dragic and Mavs star Doncic, who has known Dragic since he was a child. The two played together for the 2017 Slovenian National Team that won the FIBA Eurobasket tournament. In the past Dragic has also referred to Doncic as his “little brother.” Dallas, though, has a full roster of 15 players as it stands and...

    Getty Marvin Bagley III #35 of the Sacramento Kings stands on the court during their game against the Dallas Mavericks. The trade winds are blowing hard in Sacramento for Marvin Bagley. The disgruntled big man was left out of the Kings’ rotation to start the season, causing his agent to rip the organization on social media. Jeff Schwartz called it a “case study in mismanagement” and cited the Kings turning down multiple offers for his client. Bagley, the No. 2 overall pick in 2018, saw zero minutes in the season opener. It wasn’t because he has any lingering effects from the groin injury that limited him to 43 games last season. No, the two sides are in a heated dispute and a deal seems imminent. Why should the Miami Heat care? For starters, the team has an open roster spot and could use another experienced 6-foot-11 body. He has averaged 14.5 points and 7.5 rebounds for his career. President Pat Riley purposefully left the vacancy there as a way to stay under the luxury tax threshold. According to...

In a matchup that, like last season, is already being billed as a potential NBA Finals preview, the Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers are set to square off on Christmas Day, the NBA announced on Tuesday.

    Longtime New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs is looking to make a comeback after retiring from the NFL more than seven years ago and he says three teams have reached out to him.

JETS’ ZACH WILSON OFFERED TO PAY MOM TO DELETE INSTAGRAM: ‘I DON’T NEED YOUR MONEY’ A two-time Super Bowl champion, Jacobs' decision to return to the NFL was prompted by Tim Tebow’s return as a tight end for the Jacksonville Jaguars.  His announcement was met with scrutiny but Jacobs vowed to put in the work and apparently it’s paid off.

    As President Joe Biden weighed how far to press Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in public for a ceasefire last week, he was missing an authoritative voice in the country, someone with a direct line to the White House who could advance Washington's interests and spur a response from the boss. Instead, Biden spent 11 days under fire from congressional allies urging him to demand a halt to the fighting while remaining largely silent. Brett Bruen, a former foreign service officer and a member of the Obama administration’s National Security Council, told the Washington Examiner that having an ambassador in place "would have made an enormous difference" to the speed of Biden's response. "They have the relationships with top Israeli leaders and can extract better insights, as well as enjoy far more influence when delivering hard messages," Bruen said. "We also don't have someone who can do major interviews and get the United States's policy prominently out in the press. Our engagements on the ground get stuck at a working level, which isn't where the decisions are being made."...
    Getty Former Packers QB Brett Hundley In all likelihood, the 2021 Dallas Cowboys‘ backup quarterback is not yet on the roster. But that could soon change. ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler reported Tuesday the Cowboys will host former Green Bay Packers QB Brett Hundley on a free-agent visit in the coming days. “Free agent quarterback Brett Hundley is visiting the #Cowboys this week, per source,” Fowler tweeted. “Dallas is looking at adding depth to the position and Hundley has familiarity with Mike McCarthy from Green Bay.” Hundley’s impending workout comes after Dallas opted against signing QBs J.T. Barrett and Brady Davis, both of whom participated in the team’s rookie minicamp this past weekend.

    Republican Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw explained that while Americans are more interested in issues that concern them, you can’t “ex-communicate” a former president. “My Republican supporters do not ask me about Trump, they don’t ask me about what he said,” Crenshaw told NBC’s “Meet the Press,” explaining that he gets asked about issues such as the illegal crossings at the border, inflation, savings, and the hiring crisis many businesses are now facing. “I believe that you’re not going to ex-communicate a former President,” Crenshaw said, adding that he feels that Trump should continue focusing on the border and the issues that Americans are facing right now. “I don’t think Trump is the devil. I won’t say that. I don’t think he’s Jesus either.” (RELATED: ‘I Never Get Asked About This’: Dan Crenshaw Says People Care About Skyrocketing Gas Prices, Not Liz Cheney) “I’m a rational human being about this.

It’s been a month since the Detroit Lions released former Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Jesse James. Considering the lack of success he experienced during his two years in Detroit, it’s no surprise that teams aren’t racing to sign him. But according to Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network, the Buffalo Bills are a potential suitor. Pauline recently noted that “[t]he Bills are interested, but per my sources, they are not close to a contract. It may be a situation where the Bills or another team agree to a deal with James on Day 3 of the draft if they can’t come away with a tight end in Rounds 2-4.” ALL the latest Steelers news straight to your inbox!

    Getty K'Waun Williams runs on the field before a 49ers game. The Detroit Lions have gotten off to a slower start in free agency this year than in previous seasons, but that doesn’t mean the team isn’t working the backchannels to try and improve their roster for the 2021 season. While Detroit’s biggest moves thus far have been making cuts to re-shape the roster and trying to hold on to their own free agents, the team has put a few feelers out on the market. The team had interest in safety John Johnson before he signed with the Cleveland Browns, and now looks to have their eyes on a new defender. ALL the latest Lions news straight to your inbox!

    ARTURO VIDAL has been up for sale by Inter Milan, according to reports. And Brazilian side Flamengo are 'dreaming' of recruiting the eight-time league title winner. 2Arturo Vidal has underwhelmed at InterCredit: Getty Images - Getty Antonio Conte was eager to be reunited with the Chilean last summer, grabbing him from Barcelona for just £900,000. But the 33-year-old former former Juventus ace's return to Serie A could be a brief one, having so far underwhelmed at Inter. According to Calcio Mercato, Vidal is now 'no use' to Conte's side - with Christian Eriksen the more likely to stay. Vidal may be tricky to shift come the summer, however, as he'll still have a year remaining on his £100,000-a-week deal signed in September. According to the midfielder's former Bayern Munich team-mate Rafinha, however, Vidal is already enamoured with Flamengo. The 35-year-old, who won the Copa Libertadores with the Brazilian giants in 2019, said: "Vidal has a great desire to play for Flamengo. A lot. "When he saw us win the Libertadores in 2019, he went crazy. "He told me 'Rafa,...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — If you want straight-laced and serious, Sharon McMahon’s Instagram page SharonSaysSo may not be your thing. But you will learn a thing or two about our government from this former teacher and you’ll even get a laugh while you’re at it. “I started in October and I started really in response to seeing a lot of misinformation that I was seeing floating on the internet,” said McMahon. The Duluth-based former teacher has become an overnight sensation on Instagram with a following that has ballooned to nearly 390,000 followers in just four months. “The idea that somehow other people would be very interested in hearing me talk about the electoral college, I did not see that coming,” said McMahon. Her videos about government are humorous but her real schtick? No spin. “That to me says a lot about the hunger for the information,” said McMahon. “What I’m finding people are hungry for is nonpartisan education.” Her followers also have an appetite for helping others. So when she shared the nonprofit RIP Medical Debt, an organization that can wipe...
    A longtime adviser to Donald Trump says the former president will be "actively involved" in Republican Party politics going forward. And that includes supporting primary challenges against those that have crossed Trump. "The president continues to have enormous support and approval among Republican primary voters. He continues to have hundreds of millions of dollars in his campaign account, which he can utilize. And he will continue to be actively involved in recruiting candidates and holding elected officials accountable for their votes," Corey Lewandowski told Fox News on Thursday. RNC CHAIR MCDANIEL SAYS TRUMP WON’T START THIRD PARTY Lewandowski, who managed Trump’s 2016 presidential primary campaign and served as a top adviser on the 2020 reelection effort, also shot down suggestions that the former president would form a splinter party, saying "I don’t think the president has any interest in being part of a third party."

He joins the previously reported Jackie Bradley Jr. and Eddie Rosario as left-handed-hitting outfielders on the Giants’ wish list. © Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports In signing with San Francisco, Pederson would reunite with president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi, who was the Dodgers’ general manager from Pederson’s major league debut in 2014 through 2018. Pederson was largely productive during that time and in the season after Zaidi’s departure, and though he struggled in the Dodgers’ World Series-winning campaign last year, there is no doubt he has been a solid offensive presence throughout his career. Across 2,517 plate appearances, Pederson has batted .230/.336/.470 (118 wRC+) with 130 home runs,...
    The Oakland Athletics will have some competition for free agent shortstop Marcus Semien. The MLB Hot Stove season hasn’t gotten off to the raucous start like we’ve been spoiled with in recent years. There have been some huge trades (i.e. Francisco Lindor to the New York Mets, Blake Snell and Yu Darvish to the San Diego Padres), but not much on the free agency front. Even with the slow pace, Oakland Athletics infielder Marcus Semien has quite the market for him. According to ESPN’s Jim Bowden, the Philadelphia Phillies, Boston Red Sox, Cincinnati Reds and the Athletics have engaged in negotiations with Semien “to some extent.” According to club sources #Phillies #Reds #RedSox (2B) #Athletics have all been involved to some extent in negotiations w/free agent infielder Marcus Semien.
