It is crazy-rumor season in the NBA as we approach Thursday's trade deadline, and with two big names already being dealt, at least one NBA executive apparently believes the Boston Celtics will land an All-Star this week — Paul George. ESPN Insider Marc Stein was a guest on Zach Lowe's "The Lowe Post" podcast to discuss the big rumors floating around. While Stein does not believe George will be traded, he spoke to one anonymous NBA executive who believes the three-time, third-team, All-NBA player will be in a Celtics uniform later this week.
Kain Blackwing, 47, faces fresh charges for solicitation for aggravated murder, conspiracy to commit aggravated murder and attempted aggravated murder, according to court records obtained by PEOPLE. Blackwing has yet to enter a plea to the new charges, which were filed on Thursday. On Sept. 19, 2014, just four days before the start of his trial, two of Blackwing’s purported wives — Raven Blackwing, 24, and Tylynn Southwick, 21 — broke into the girl’s home, intent on suffocating her, according to the court documents.

Despite the retirement of wide receiver Calvin Johnson prior to the 2016 season, quarterback Matthew Stafford remained productive in the passing game. A dynamic runner should be at the top of Detroit's wish list.
