Houston Rockets, John Wall working to find trade deal

The Houston Rockets and John Wall have agreed to work together in an effort to find a trade destination for the veteran point guard, as the franchise is committed to moving forward with Kevin Porter Jr. and Jalen Green as its starting backcourt. The commitment to the 20-year-old Porter and 18-year-old Green leaves Wall, a five-time All-Star who was traded to Houston in the Russell Westbrook deal last year, without a starting role. Wall, 31, is not estimated to play for Houston, as team management and Wall mutually decided that a bench role for him wouldn’t be beneficial to either party, sources said.

Aaron Gordon, Denver Nuggets agree to four-year, $92 million extension

Denver Nuggets forward Aaron Gordon has agreed to a four-year, $92 million contract extension, his agent, Calvin Andrews of Klutch Sports, confirmed to the Undefeated Marc J. Spears on Tuesday. The deal, which was first reported by The Athletic, contains a player option for the fourth year in 2025-26, his agent told ESPN. It includes $88 million in base salary and $4 million in incentives, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks. Gordon, the 11th player this offseason to sign a veteran extension, was dealt to Denver in a March trade that sent veteran shooting guard Gary Harris, rookie R.J. Hampton and Denver’s protected 2025 first-round pick to the […]

Chicago Bulls Sign Forward Alize Johnson to Two-Year Deal

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the 25-year-old power forward has signed a two-year $3.6 million deal with Arturas Karnisovas and Co.   In desperate need of depth at power forward after missing out on both Paul Millsap and LaMarcus Aldridge, Johnson entered the picture as a possibility when the Nets waived him late last week.   On a Monday where the Bulls also reportedly added both Stanley Johnson and Matt Thomas, Alize Johnson is easily the most intriguing signing. He might have the fewest professional matches under his belt, but he does provide better size and physicality for this team to slot into […]

Paul Millsap agrees to deal with Nets

Paul Millsap has agreed to a deal with the Brooklyn Nets, his agent, DeAngelo Simmons, told ESPN on Thursday. Millsap becomes the latest former All-Star to join the Nets over the past few seasons, joining Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden. Millsap’s four All-Star appearances bring Brooklyn’s total up to 38. For the first time since his second year in the league in 2007-08, Millsap failed to average double figures in scoring last campaign. He averaged just 9.0 points and 4.7 rebounds in 56 matches for the Nuggets. Following a trade for Aaron Gordon in late March, Millsap lost the starting job he had held with Denver […]

Victor Oladipo agrees to stay with Miami Heat on 1-year deal

Free agent Victor Oladipo agreed to a one-year, minimum deal to stay with the Miami Heat, a source told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Wednesday. He will continue to rehab his quadriceps tendon injury through the start of the campaign, a source told ESPN. Oladipo, 29, emerged as an All-NBA player with the Indiana Pacers in a breakout 2017-18 season but has struggled with consistency in his comeback from a devastating knee injury he suffered in 2019. After being obtained by the Heat, Oladipo injured his knee in April and didn’t play the rest of the season after he opted to have season-ending surgery on his […]

Albert Pujols in agreement with Los Angeles Dodgers on major league deal

The Los Angeles Dodgers and future Hall of Fame first baseman Albert Pujols are in agreement on a major league contract, sources told ESPN on Saturday. The deal, first reported by the Los Angeles Times, isn’t expected to become official until Monday, a source said. When it does, the Dodgers will pay Pujols only the prorated portion of the major league minimum salary for the rest of the campaign, roughly $420,000, a sum that will be subtracted from the $30 million salary that is being paid to him by the Los Angeles Angels. Pujols, in the last year of his 10-year, $240 million […]

New York Mets and All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor agree to 10-year, $341 million deal

The New York Mets and shortstop Francisco Lindor have agreed to a 10-year, $341 million deal, a source told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Wednesday. Lindor’s deal will be the third largest based on total value in major league history, trailing only the deals for the Los Angeles Angels’ Mike Trout ($426.5 million) and the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Mookie Betts ($365 million). The Mets were widely expected to sign Lindor to a long-term extension after getting the four-time All-Star in a blockbuster trade with the Cleveland Indians this offseason. The negotiations became a major storyline during spring training, with new Mets owner Steve Cohen writing on Twitter last week, “What do think Lindor will accept? I’m […]

Detroit Lions, ex-Las Vegas Raiders WR Tyrell Williams reach deal, source says

Former Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Tyrell Williams has reached agreement on a one-year deal worth up to $6.2 million with the Detroit Lions, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Wednesday. The Lions might have a revamped wide receiver corps in 2021, as Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones Jr. and Danny Amendola are set to become free agents later this month. Golladay could be a candidate for the team’s franchise tag. On Tuesday, Lions general manager Brad Holmes stated he didn’t think it would take long to remake the team’s receiver room. The Lions might also end up without returner/receiver Jamal Agnew and have just Quintez Cephus and Geronimo Allison, who opted out of […]

Carlos Correa open to long-term contract with Houston Astros, if done before season starts

If the Houston Astros want to sign shortstop Carlos Correa to a long-term deal, he says they need to do it before Opening Day. “I feel so good, my body feels so great and I feel like I’m going to have such a great season that once the season starts, I don’t want to be involved with or distracted with those conversations,” Correa stated Monday after the Astros held their first full-squad workout of the spring. The Astros avoided arbitration with Correa, who can become a free agent at the end of the season, by signing him to a one-year, $11.7 million contract. […]

Outfielder Marcell Ozuna returns to Atlanta Braves on four-year deal

The Atlanta Braves are bringing back Marcell Ozuna, signing the slugger to a four-year, $64 million deal. The Braves revealed the deal for the 2020 National League home run and RBI leader on Friday night, less than two weeks before pitchers and catchers are set to report for spring training. The contract contains a fifth-year club option for $16 million that would take it to $80 million with a $1 million buyout, which would yield Ozuna $65 million in guaranteed money. The Braves made the major commitment to Ozuna despite having no assurance there will be a designated hitter in the NL in […]
