In his first media session in five months, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson offered little clearness about his contract situation or how he would handle the lack of a new deal before training camp or the start of the season. Jackson deflected questions about his contract situation Thursday, saying a variation of “We’re having a conversation about it” eight times during a 10-minute news conference. He did express confidence when asked if he considered he would play in Baltimore for the rest of his career. “I expect so,” Jackson said. “So, yes, I do.” Jackson is set to make $23.016 million on his fifth-year […]

Tyus Jones scored 25 points and the Memphis Grizzlies edged the San Antonio Spurs 112-111 on Wednesday night to capture the Southwest Division title and clinch the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference. The Grizzlies claimed their first division title in franchise history and accomplished the feat with All-Star point guard Ja Morant watching from the sidelines. “Definitely a big milestone,” Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins said. “I told the group, a special accomplishment for a special group, but we’ve got more work to do.” Memphis never trailed, even as Morant missed his sixth consecutive game with a sore right knee.

Brooklyn Nets trade James Harden to Philadelphia 76ers for Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond

The Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers agreed to a blockbuster trade just hours before Thursday’s deadline, with James Harden and Paul Millsap going to Philadelphia and Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond and two first-round draft picks going to Brooklyn, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Brooklyn will receive Philadelphia’s unprotected 2022 first-round pick, with the right to defer it to 2023, as well as a top-8-protected 2027 first-round pick, according to Wojnarowski. That pick would remain top-8 protected in 2028, and will turn into two second-round picks — and $2 million in cash — if it doesn’t convey in either season, sources said. The Nets also are waiving DeAndre’ Bembry to create roster room […]

Eric Chavez opts to be New York Mets hitting coach just weeks after being hired by Yankees

The New York Mets have agreed to hire Eric Chavez as their hitting coach, just weeks after he joined the crosstown New York Yankees as an assistant hitting coach, sources confirmed to ESPN on Thursday. Neither team has spoken openly on the matter, but the transition, while uncommon, was said to have been executed in good faith. Chavez, who was revealed as part of Aaron Boone’s staff with the Yankees on Dec. 21, now will help make up the burgeoning staff of longtime manager Buck Showalter and join Mets general manager Billy Eppler for the third time.

Los Angeles Angels hire Phil Nevin, Bill Haselman and Benji Gil; Adam Eaton could return as coach

The Los Angeles Angels are bringing in Phil Nevin, Bill Haselman and Benji Gil as part of their coaching staff under manager Joe Maddon, the team revealed Wednesday. Their roles have yet to be determined, at least in part because of the uncertainty surrounding Adam Eaton, a prospective coach who played last season and thus can’t communicate with team officials because of Major League Baseball’s ongoing lockout. Eaton, 33, spent the last 10 years as a major league outfielder and made enough of an impression with the Angels in 2021 — particularly on young outfielders Brandon Marsh and Jo Adell — that the team has considered […]

Los Angeles Lakers need steady play from Russell Westbrook with roster depleted, acting head coach David Fizdale says

The Los Angeles Lakers have lost three matches in a row, have four players and their head coach in the NBA’s health and safety protocols and are still reeling from the news that Anthony Davis is expected to miss at least a month with a sprained MCL in his left knee. As the team tries to weather the maelstrom of maladies it is facing, former league MVP and nine-time All-Star Russell Westbrook has taken it upon himself to try to pull them out of it. However, acting head coach David Fizdale — filling in for Frank Vogel while he is recovering from COVID-19 — said the […]

New York Mets hire Buck Showalter as new manager

The New York Mets have hired Buck Showalter as their new manager, team owner Steven Cohen revealed Saturday on Twitter. Showalter received a three-year contract, according to a person familiar with the deal. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the length of the agreement had not been announced. Showalter, 65, takes over for Luis Rojas, who was fired after a season in which the team held on to first place for 103 days but ultimately concluded 77-85 and missed the playoffs. Houston Astros bench coach Joe Espada and Tampa Bay Rays bench coach Matt Quatraro also were candidates for the […]
