Andrew Bogut agrees to 1-year deal with Lakers

first_imgThe Warriors traded Bogut to Dallas last summer to help clear enough cap space to sign Kevin Durant. He appeared in 26 games for the Mavericks before being traded to Philadelphia as part of a deal for Nerlens Noel. He negotiated a buyout with the 76ers that allowed him to pursue a deal with a contending team.The Lakers finished 26-56 last season, but are likely to improve after drafting former UCLA star Lonzo Ball No. 2 overall and adding players such as Lopez and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. The Lakers made a surprising addition to their roster on Monday, agreeing to a one-year veteran minimum deal with defensive stalwart Andrew Bogut.The Lakers add a key player for the 2015 champion Golden State Warriors to a front line that already includes former All-Star center Brook Lopez and 20-year-old Croatian Ivica Zubac.Bogut last appeared in a game for Cleveland in February. His stint there ended 58 seconds into his debut after he collided with the Miami Heat’s Okaro White and suffered a fractured left tibia. He missed the rest of the season, but he was reportedly medically cleared last weekend after he spent the summer rehabbing in his native Australia.Bogut, 32, was the No. 1 overall pick of the Milwaukee Bucks in 2005, and has averaged 10 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.6 blocked shots in 11 seasons with Milwaukee, Golden State, Dallas and Cleveland.

Bogut becomes one of the few veterans, joining Lopez, Corey Brewer and Luol Deng.Bogut previously played for Lakers coach Luke Walton when he was a Warriors assistant coach and, for 43 games, interim head coach from 2014-16.A more reliable rim protector than Lopez — who is known for his scoring — Bogut also fielded interest from the Minnesota Timberwolves, Boston Celtics and Cavaliers, according to a report retweeted by his agent, David Bauman. The deal is for a nonguaranteed $2.3 million, Bauman confirmed on Twitter.Bogut also gives the Lakers insurance against the health of Lopez. Lopez, 29, has been remarkably durable in recent years, appearing in at least 72 games four out of the past five seasons. However, he has dealt with back issues this summer that could cause him to miss part of the preseason.The Lakers are high on Zubac, their 2016 second-round draft pick, but he is short on experience, averaging just 16 minutes per game in 38 appearances last season as a rookie.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

MLB All-Star Game 2019: Actual baseball takes back seat in Cleveland’s celebration of the sport

first_imgCLEVELAND — If we’re being honest, the actual baseball played during the 2019 All-Star Game on Tuesday night wasn’t the most entertaining or exciting part of the multiple-day All-Star extravaganza near the shore of Lake Erie. And that’s OK.  MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNThe game itself was fine. The American League beat the National League 4-3. The NL’s eighth-inning rally — the Senior Circuit cut the deficit to just 4-3 on a two-run single by Mets rookie Pete Alonso — fell short with the tying run on third and the go-ahead run at second. The biggest theme of the game was AL pitchers striking out a bunch of NL hitters, 16 of them, including three each by game MVP Shane Bieber, Liam Hendricks and Aroldis Chapman.Shane Bieber.That’s it.That’s the tweet.#AllStarGame | #RallyTogether pic.twitter.com/HAR8FjeYc6— Cleveland Indians (@Indians) July 10, 2019“We were nasty, man,” said Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman, who’s nursing a pectoral injury and didn’t pitch in the game. “It was a nice little win for the AL.”Turned out that Joey Gallo’s solo home run in the seventh inning, a line-drive that gave the AL a three-run cushion, was pretty darn important. In a season that’s been defined by incredible home run numbers, that was one of only two baseballs to sneak over the fence in the Midsummer Classic. Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon — who had been 0-for-8 in his first three All-Star Games — homered in the sixth and got the goose egg off the scoreboard for the NL, which he admitted was a nice feeling.  ‘Yeah! I mean, I felt like I contributed for the first time,” Blackmon told SN with a grin. “I wish I could have done something in that next at-bat, but it was still fun to be out there.”That “next at-bat” was in the seventh, when he struck out with the bases loaded, immediately before Alonso delivered his RBI base knock. He wasn’t the only NL hitter to flail helplessly against AL hurlers, of course. We already mentioned the 16 strikeouts.The contrast between Monday night’s frenetic Home Run Derby — Vlad Guerrero Jr. hit 91 homers himself, Alonso won the title and the eight guys combined to hit 312 homers — and Tuesday’s All-Star Game was hard to ignore. But, again, that’s OK. A record 91 bombs. 20 years old. 60 seconds 😳#PLAKATA 💥 | #LetsGoBlueJays pic.twitter.com/nlc0kBhUel— Toronto Blue Jays (@BlueJays) July 9, 2019The game’s an exhibition, a celebration of the sport. And to that extent, the week’s worth of events was mission accomplished in Cleveland. The excitement in the city, which did a fantastic job hosting, was hard to ignore, too. The Play Ball Park events were packed with families and kids — side note to MLB: Make this a traveling show that moves around the country and promotes the game, please —and the support inside the stadium was outstanding, too. Raucous cheers erupted anytime one of the hometown players did anything remotely good Tuesday night. Again, if we’re being honest, Bieber was probably given the MVP largely because the roars that increased with each of his three strikeouts in the fifth inning were, by far, the loudest of the game.  Together, we stand #CookieStrong. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/1wmFn6KEYK— Cleveland Indians (@Indians) July 10, 2019BENDER: Shane Bieber gave hometown fans a thrill on way to All-Star MVPThe Stand Up To Cancer moment, when Cleveland teammates Bieber, Francisco Lindor, Carlos Santana and manager Terry Francona joined Carlos Carrasco — who just announced that he has leukemia — was chill-inducing.“It was a message,” Lindor said. “It was a message to let him know, ‘We stand up for you. We will be next to you, as a team and as a family. We are next to you. We’re right there for you.’ And that’s all that matters. We all believe in him, we all believe that he’s gonna kick cancer’s butt, and he’ll be fine.”  pic.twitter.com/GT1hVOwjDb— Los Angeles Angels (@Angels) July 9, 2019And then there was Mike Trout running onto the field wearing uniform No. 45 in tribute to Tyler Skaggs, his Angels teammate who died suddenly and shockingly at 27 years old when the team was in Dallas to play the Rangers recently. Tommy La Stella, the other Angels All-Star, wore Skaggs’ No. 45, too. Another unforgettable moment that was more important than the actual baseball played in this exhibition — one no longer tied to home-field advantage in the World Series, thankfully — that was a celebration of the sport. And that’s exactly what happened this week, a worthy celebration.last_img read more

Indians’ Francisco Lindor pleads with MLB teams to extend netting after foul ball hits little boy

first_imgMeanwhile, Lindor stood outside the batter’s box looking at the crowd and was obviously upset.“As soon as I hit it, I knew it was headed to somebody,” Lindor said, via Cleveland.com. “I hit it hard. I got over on the ball. It stinks. Related News Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor is begging for MLB teams to extend protective netting after his foul ball hit a little boy Sunday.While facing off against the Royals at Progressive Field, Lindor fouled a 92 mph pitch behind the Royals’ dugout and into the crowd in the sixth inning. Immediately afterward, a man was seen sprinting up the stairs with a small child in his arms. Corey Kluber injury update: Indians ace (broken arm) ramps up mound work “I encourage every MLB team to put the nets all the way down (to the foul pole). I know it’s all about the fans’ experience to interact with the players. I completely get that. You want to have that interaction with the players, getting autographs and stuff. But at the end of the day, we want to make sure everybody comes out of the game healthy. We’ve got to do something about it.“Everybody feels bad. If we can put the nets a little farther down, it would be a a lot better.”While the team didn’t release any further information on the incident, Lindor said he tracked down where the child was being treated to make sure he was going to be all right.“He’s in the hospital right now,” Lindor said. “I came over immediately and tried to find out where he was. The paramedics were checking him here.”Once I got out of the game, they let me know that he’s doing OK. He’s doing good. He’s in the hospital getting checked out. He’s talking and answering questions and his eyes look good. That’s a good sign. Hopefully, every test they run on him comes back good. MLB wrap: Dodgers shut out Marlins, complete sweep MLB trade rumors: Padres ‘most serious’ suitor for Trevor Bauer “You don’t want that to happen to anybody, especially a little kid.”According to Lindor, the boy is 3 years old.So far, six MLB teams have extended the protective netting farther down the foul lines since 2018. However, more people have been hit with foul balls beyond the netting, including a little girl at an Astros-Cubs game in May.last_img read more

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow and Shane Farley, Newscow.ne — The Sumner County Sheriff’s Office has identified Joseph Lamasters of Creston, Iowa as the man who was shot and killed in Sumner County, Monday afternoon after he allegedly threatened a farmer and his 17-year-old son.According to Creston Police reports, Lamasters, 41, of 400 N. Walnut St. was charged in a major drug bust which had occurred in Union County, about 70 miles southwest of Des Moines, Iowa on March 2, 2012. He was one of 13 arrested in a narcotic investigation brought on by five Iowa drug agencies. He was arrested for delivery of methamphetamine, failure to affix a valid Iowa drug stamp tax and possession of methamphetamine, according to a Creston (Iowa) News Advertiser report.It was unknown why Lamasters was in Kansas Monday that resulted in his death when a Sumner County farmer shot and killed Lamasters following an incident Monday that began on the Kansas Turnpike.Around 5:30 p.m., Monday an unidentified farmer confronted the suspect, who was hiding in an outbuilding at a residence near the 800 block of E. 140th St. South, north of South Haven.The farmer was armed with a shotgun.“The suspect was in the barn and basically attacked the farmer, cussed at him and said I’m going to kill you,” sheriff Darren Chambers said to Newscow.net on Monday. “The farmer, with his son there as a witness, felt in fear of his life and used deadly force to protect himself.”Sumner County Attorney Kerwin Spencer told Sumner Newscow Tuesday morning his office will not be making charges at this time on an incident which occurred late Monday afternoon involving a Sumner County farmer.“The Sheriff contacted me by phone at 6 to 6:15 (Monday) evening and invited me to come out to the scene,” Spencer said. “After briefing me on the situation, I didn’t feel it was necessary for me to go to the scene. I only go to the scene if I feel charges need to be filed.”The suspect had been the subject of an extensive search earlier in the day when he failed to pay his toll on the Kansas Turnpike and authorities learned he was wanted.Chambers told KSN-TV, that authorities began searching for Lamasters around noon Monday when he left his ID at the south terminal of the Kansas Turnpike. Troopers said he was a lane runner which means someone not paying his turnpike fee.He was not armed at the time of the incident, Chambers said.His vehicle, which later was determined to be stolen, was recovered along the turnpike. Chambers thinks that the man may have run out of gas.Authorities assumed the man fled and launched a search, which included air support from highway patrol aircraft.Landowners in the area were alerted by authorities, who went door to door with information about the suspect, Chambers said. An ID the suspect left behind, led to the discovery he was wanted on drug charges in Iowa and had been known to carry weapons with him in the past – thus creating the potential he was armed and dangerous.Authorities suspended their search around 3 p.m. Monday when they couldn’t locate the suspect.“A lot of times these people will wait until it’s dark, steal a car and we’ll find it a couple days later in Texas,” Chambers said. “This guy didn’t wait and he got spotted.”Just before 5 p.m., the farmer, who had been out burning off hedgerow, noticed the suspicious man.The man who fired off the fatal shot told authorities, that he saw the man coming up the road near the farmer’s home. He approached the suspect and told him to wait there for authorities.The suspect fled on foot and the farmer attempted to follow him in a vehicle. At that point, the farmer saw that the man was headed to a residence owned by relatives of the farmer.The farmer arrived at that home and found it to be secure and learned no one was home. A check of the outbuildings led the farmer to the suspect and the fatal shot was fired.The body of Lamasters was removed from the rural property under the direction of the county coroner and underwent an autopsy Tuesday in Wichita.Authorities were en route to the scene at the time the shooting occurred.The Sheriff and Attorney then conferred with one another and determined no charges will be filed.last_img read more
