Astros, Rafael Montero reach 3-year, $34.5M deal

Reliever Rafael Montero agreed to a three-year, $34.5 million deal that will bring the right-hander back to the Houston Astros’ dominant bullpen a week after the team rode its pitching staff to a World Series title, sources familiar with the deal told ESPN. Montero, 32, thrived in his first full season with the Astros, posting a 2.37 ERA in 68⅓ innings and allowing just three home runs while striking out 73. The deal came together on a transformative Friday for the Astros, who saw general manager James Click reject a one-year contract from owner Jim Crane and leave the organization. Re-signing Montero deepens an Astros […]

Ravens acquire LB Roquan Smith in trade with Bears

The Baltimore Ravens filled the biggest void in the middle of their defense with the NFL’s leading tackler. The Ravens got Chicago Bears linebacker Roquan Smith on Tuesday, sending the Bears a second- and a fifth-round pick in 2023 for Smith, who tops the NFL with 83 tackles this season. As part of the trade, the Ravens also sent linebacker A.J. Klein to Chicago. Smith was owed $5.408 million for the rest of the season. As part of the trade agreement, the Bears are paying Smith $4.833 million while the Ravens are paying him the league-minimum $575,000 for the rest of the season, sources told ESPN’s Adam […]

Russell Wilson, Denver Broncos agree to 5-year extension worth $245 million, including $165 million guaranteed

From the moment the Denver Broncos landed Russell Wilson in a franchise-altering trade this past March, general manager George Paton insisted that the team’s goal was to sign the star quarterback to a long-term extension. Paton and the Broncos achieved that goal Thursday, agreeing with Wilson on a five-year, $245 million extension that includes $165 million in guaranteed money, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The megadeal is the third-most lucrative contract in NFL history in terms of guaranteed money, behind only Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson’s $230 million and Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray’s $189.5 million. The Broncos revealed the deal, which runs through the 2028 season, but did not disclose financial […]

Philadelphia 76ers officially announce new deal with veteran NBA All-Star James Harden

The Philadelphia 76ers officially stated on Wednesday their new deal with veteran James Harden. The club didn’t reveal terms in a release, but Harden’s contract is for two years and $68.6 million, and it involves a player option for the 2023-24 season, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski last week. “This is where I want to be. This is where I want to win, and I think we have the pieces to accomplish that goal,” Harden said in a statement. “From my first day with the 76ers organization, the team and the fans have helped me feel at home here in Philadelphia. I’m excited to […]

Boston Celtics among teams to engage in talks with Brooklyn Nets on possible Kevin Durant deal

As Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant’s trade request approaches a fourth week, the Boston Celtics have emerged among teams engaged in talks on a possible deal, sources told ESPN. The Celtics appear no closer to acquiring Durant than others in discussions with the Nets, but Boston’s capacity to include All-Star forward Jaylen Brown as a centerpiece in offers does help make the team formidable in its pursuit, sources said. The Miami Heat, Phoenix Suns and Toronto Raptors have been well-known to have varying degrees of interest in Durant, but the Celtics have also been in regular contact with the Nets, sources said.

Zion Williamson, New Orleans Pelicans agree to five-year designated maximum rookie extension

New Orleans Pelicans star Zion Williamson has agreed to a five-year, $193 million designated maximum rookie extension that could earn him as much as $231 million. If Williamson makes the All-NBA team or wins MVP or Defensive Player of the Year next campaign, it would trigger supermax escalator clauses that could up the total value of the deal to $231 million. Though Williamson, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NBA draft, missed the entire 2021-22 campaign with a broken right foot, he has proved to be a generational talent ever since he stepped on an NBA floor. During his rookie season, […]

Texas Rangers trade Willie Calhoun to San Francisco Giants for Steven Duggar

The San Francisco Giants acquired Willie Calhoun on Thursday, sending outfielder Steven Duggar to Texas for the outfielder who was the main return for the Rangers when they traded pitcher Yu Darvish five years ago. It will be a homecoming for Calhoun, and a move he requested after being sent to the minors on May 1. The 27-year-old was born in the East Bay city of Vallejo and attended Benicia High School. “We wish Willie the best in his opportunity with San Francisco,” Rangers president Jon Daniels said. “It’s a fresh start for him, as well as being close to home.” San Francisco also gets cash in the […]

Miguel Andujar requests trade from New York Yankees following demotion

Miguel Andujar has requested a trade from the New York Yankees after being demoted to the minors, according to multiple reports. Andujar informed Yankees manager Aaron Boone of his wish to be traded Friday after New York optioned the outfielder to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, according to reports. The New York Post reported that Andujar has been seeking a trade since the end of the 2021 season. The Yankees have not confirmed the reports, and Boone would not elaborate on his discussion with Andujar, calling the demotion a result of a “tough numbers game.” Looking for the best online betting site and Live betting?

Toronto Blue Jays trade Randal Grichuk to Colorado Rockies for Raimel Tapia

The Toronto Blue Jays have traded slugger Randal Grichuk to the Colorado Rockies in exchange for outfielder Raimel Tapia, it was announced Thursday. The Rockies will receive $9.7 million in cash from the Blue Jays, while Toronto also gets minor league infielder Adrian Pinto in the deal. Grichuk, who was dealt two days after hitting a grand slam in a spring training game, hit .241 with 22 home runs and 81 RBIs for Toronto last season, playing primarily in center and right field. The cash going to Colorado will offset a little more than half of the $18.7 million that Grichuk is owed over the final two […]

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 […]
