As for the Cleveland Cavaliers, they get rid of a guy they weren’t playing anyway and avoid this situation getting toxic. Aldridge probably wouldn’t be thrilled to join this Eastern Conference bottom-feeder, but maybe as a seasoned vet, he’d have some nuggets of wisdom to impart on the youngsters before immediately bolting in free agency? I don’t know. I told you this one was weird. Moving on!Brooklyn Nets

WR Curtis Samuel – He had a heck of a breakout year in Carolina, with 77 catches for 851 yards and three touchdowns. He’s a versatile player who can line up as a slot receiver or a running back, and has the speed to be a deep threat, too. He’s 5-foot-11 and the Giants probably need to think bigger, but remember, he’s a former second-round pick of Giants GM Dave Gettleman in Carolina. Plus, he’s a Brooklyn native who surely could be lured back home.
Given the structure of the Cooper and Elliott deals, Elliott is more likely to remain through 2022. Cooper, however, likely is entering his final year in Dallas — unless he agrees after the season to a major restructuring of the deal and reduction of his pay.NFL Chicago Bears Team Face Coverings

Mike Evans (WR2) - With so much target competition, it’s a little hard envisioning Evans climbing back into the every-week WR1 mix. He averaged 15.2 PPR points per game after Antonio Brown’s signing and was the WR15 per game (16.1 PPR) during the entire regular season. The floor is extremely bankable, however, after seven-straight seasons of 1,000-plus yards. Evans is 28 years old.

“I get in trouble when I say stuff like this,” Morey says, “but he’s the most unstoppable thing I’ve ever seen. And I’ve seen a lot. You know who I’ve seen,” he says, alluding to Harden. “But I’ve never seen anything like it. Like last night against Rudy Gobert, he faced him up at eight feet, and I mean it ended in a dunk. And (Gobert) is an amazing defender. And he had no answer.”

BILL RUSSELL [Coach] – Following the retirement of legendary Boston Celtics coach Red Auerbach in 1966, Bill Russell became the first Black head coach in the NBA. In his second season as player-coach, Russell led the Boston Celtics to the 1968 NBA championship, thus becoming the first Black head coach to win an NBA title. The following season, Russell would again lead Boston to the NBA Finals and championship, his eleventh and final ring. With the Celtics, Seattle SuperSonics and Sacramento Kings, he compiled an NBA coaching record of 341-290 (.540), with a playoff record of 34-27 (.557). As a player-coach, Russell was named the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year in 1968. Russell was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as a player in 1975.

I guess I was criticized for the right reason for calling Dame’s shot in the playoffs a bad shot. I mean, I see these guys’ range is crazy, the ability to knock those shots down. And I mean, like you said, it’s not like it’s a half-court heave. These are shots that are in their – it’s well in their range. They probably can shoot it deeper.

Riley Reiff became the first domino to fall for the Minnesota Vikings this offseason and will allow the team more financial flexibility to go after unrestricted free agents. The left tackle was due a $5 million roster bonus on March 19, which was negotiated into his contract upon agreeing to a restructured deal last September. His release frees up $11.75 million in cap space to put Minnesota $8,730,584 under the cap.
“I love Drew,” wide receiver Tim Patrick said, via Mike Klis of KUSA. “Going forward I think he understands what he needs to do.

One of the last guys to leave. He’s doing the small things to be a great player in this league. And understanding what you’re not good at and getting it up to where your talent is.

Smith received 49 of 50 votes as the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year with one voter opting for Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

"The draft itself, it is stronger at the tackle position than it is at the interior," Colbert said. "Center and guard, traditionally, is not a very strong group. In any draft, the tackles are unusually deep this year. I think we can add players through the draft. Hopefully, we will be able to do some type of business in free agency. And we are always going to look at our own players first."

The deal includes a $6.5 million player option for 2023 with a $3.25 million buyout, and the 2023 option price would escalate by $2 million each and the buyout by $1 million apiece for 20, 25 and 30 points. He would get one point for each start as a pitcher or pitching appearance of 12 or more outs during 2021 and 2022.

His rookie season, on the whole, might have been statistically forgettable, but consider the context before drawing rash conclusions. Carlson's Cardinals had a 16-day gap between games due to their early-season COVID-19 outbreak, after which he was summoned from the alternate site -- his first of an eventual two stints there -- just in time for the team to play three doubleheaders in his first five days in the majors (and he indeed played every inning for them in that five-day stretch). Carlson didn't really seem to capture momentum until his mid-September recall, after which he slugged .611 with promising underlying metrics. That's a small sample, but that's what the whole year was, and we should all remember that we were on board with the possibility of 20/20 numbers and a .280 batting average from him one year ago at this time.

Before being traded from Washington to Chicago in 2019, it seemed like Porter was floated as a trade target for Portland at every turn.

To the above I can only say that while including Kelenic in that deal was malpractice (and that was a first-guess by this writer), it is not something that should be used to knock Diaz.

"After watching (fellow Australian) Grant Balfour pitch a little bit, I started tapping into it, and me being very verbally aggressive tended to coincide with what I was able to do the last couple of years. ... It's something that helps me get a little more focused.
