LeBron James’ future with Cleveland has been thrown further into doubt after the NBA star’s agent reportedly entered talks with the Lakers. James will be able to opt out of his contract with the Cavaliers next summer, and speculation over whether he will choose to exercise that right has grown this summer. He has been linked to the Houston Rockets, Miami Heat and the Lakers, who James’ agent, Rich Paul, reportedly has been speaking with with. Serena Winters, reporter for LakersNation.com, tweeted that Paul had spoken with Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka. She wrote : “Rob Pelinka says agent Rich Paul contacted him, noticing how patient the Lakers have been with their cap space: ‘Let’s talk.’”
Are you one of those people who is angry that Bryce Harper is likely getting a planned night off tonight, after going 4 for 4 with a home run, two singles, and a triple in last night’s win in the series opener with the LA Angels? Harper is 11 for 21 with a double, triple, four home runs, four walks, and four Ks in five games coming out of the All-Star Break, but Nats’ skipper Dusty Baker told reporters last night that he planned on resting the right fielder in the second of two in Anaheim. “One-day break isn’t enough,” Baker said, “where the rest of us had four days, you know what I mean? Harper homered to center field in his first at bat, singled the second time up (and was thrown out on an attempt to take second base), singled again in the sixth, then tripled in the top of the eighth, and scored to put the Nationals ahead, 3-2, in what ended up a 4-3 win.
Jordan Spieth looked good in the first round as he grabbed a share of the lead with Brooks Koepka. See if anyone can pass them at Royal Birkdale.
