NBA free agency rumors: There are ‘rumblings’ Lakers could have interest in Derrick Favors

first_img“My journey has been amazing,” Favors said. “I’ve been through a lot. I’ve been through trade rumors and a step back in role. It’s definitely made me the player and the person I am today. I just know whatever situation I get put in, I’m going to succeed. That’s why I just try and get better every year.”Favors is set to make $17 million next season, but the Jazz could afford to waive him or trade him in the second year of his two-year, $37 million contract. He expects to be notified about Utah’s decision by June 30, when free agency officially begins. Related News Favors has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career. His role has diminished in recent years, but he averaged 11.8 points and 7.4 rebounds in 2018-19. The Lakers reportedly acquired Anthony Davis in a blockbuster deal with the Pelicans on Saturday, forking over Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three first-round picks, including the No. 4 pick in this year’s draft.They are reportedly interested in acquiring Kemba Walker, Kyrie Irving, Kawhi Leonard and others stars in the offseason. The Lakers might have their sights set on Utah’s Derrick Favors.There are “rumblings” Los Angeles would like to sign the 27-year-old to a deal this summer, according to a report from The Athletic, which cites unidentified league sources. But the big man hopes to remain with the Jazz and is grateful for his 8 1/2 seasons in Utah.

3 friends beaten, shot to death while getting ready to fish at Florida lake

first_img‘You don’t just stumble upon somebody out here’While authorities usually wait several days to offer a reward, the sheriff said $5,000 was immediately offered for anyone who has a tip that leads to an arrest. The sheriff’s office later announced the amount was raised to $30,000.Anyone with tips can call the sheriff’s office at 863-298-6200, according to a news release.“The victims, their parents and their families deserve for us to solve this sooner rather than later,” Judd said.Officers don’t yet now if the suspects knew the victims, the sheriff said, but added “our intuitiveness tells us you don’t just stumble upon somebody out here.”“This is a dirt road, a clay, dirt road way out in the middle of what we call God’s country,” he said. “It’s not like there’s a lot of people around here. As you can see it’s cow pastures and lakes.” On Friday, three Florida friends were planning to go fishing late Friday evening, but things took a turn they were found dead after one of them attempted to call his father for help, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said in a news conference.“These folks appear to be beaten and shot,” the sheriff said. “I’ve been to a lot of murder scenes in my life and this ranks among the worst I’ve been to.”The sheriff’s office identified the three victims as Damion Tillman, 23, Keven Springfield, 30, and Brandon Rollins, 27. Judd said officers believe there were likely multiple suspects.One of the victims, likely Tillman, arrived at the scene first and was killed when the two other victims arrived in a pickup truck, the sheriff said.“They were shot up,” he said. “But here’s what the murderers didn’t count on: that one of our victims, Brandon Rollins, was able to call his father, and say ‘help.’”Rollins’ father was sleeping at home about 10 minutes away and drove to the scene as soon as he got the call, Judd said. But after leaving his cell phone at home, he drove back to a local convenient store to ask for help.Rollins’ father arrived and found his son, who was still alive and able to briefly talk to him before succumbing to his injuries, Judd said.last_img read more

Day Two – Men’s Amateur: England duo hit Route 66 on way to match play

first_img England colleagues Joe Long and Callum Farr hit Route 66 to motor into the last 64 of the English Men’s Amateur Championship.Gloucestershire’s Long and Farr, from Northamptonshire, carded course record scores on the Bracken at Woodhall Spa to make the knockout stages of the England Golf event.Boyce Hill golfer Jack Dyer also followed them in with a six under par round to join the duo in the record books and the match play stages after day two of the stroke play qualifying event.Long’s 36-hole total of nine-under par saw him lead the field by three shots and he will go into the match play as top seed.Farr’s 66 helped him recover from an opening round 79 on the Hotchkin which left him facing an early exit from the tournament.His two-round total of level par allowed him to comfortably make the cut which came at +4.Long admitted: “I didn’t know what the course record was, but it’s always nice to hear what you’ve achieved after playing well.“I managed to get the record at Royal Johannesburg when I was in South Africa over the winter with England too.“I’ve been playing consistently going into the championships and just hitting my driver so well.“My confidence is high so we’ll see where it takes me over the coming days.”The competition for silverware over the next four days promises to be as hot as the weather with a host of top names in contention to go all the way to Sunday’s 36-hole final.The 2019 Brabazon winner Ben Schmidt has been joined by England colleagues Arron Edwards-Hill, Robin Williams, Sam Broadhurst, Max Martin, Matty Lamb  and Sam Bairstow.Bairstow’s six-under par round of 67 on the Hotchkin course was particularly impressive on a day when the wind continued to blow and make the slick greens tricky to negotiate.However, it’s not just the young guns who are impressing this week.A man with local knowledge – Woodhall Spa’s recently-crowned club champion, Paul Wharton –  has also made the knockout rounds.Wharton is included the field for next week’s English Senior Men’s Amateur Championship – also being held on his home track. 29 Jul 2020 Day Two – Men’s Amateur: England duo hit Route 66 on way to match play last_img read more
