LeBron James denies being ‘eager’ to see Kyrie Irving traded: ‘Get another source’

LeBron James is ready to clear the airwell, sort of.

There has been plenty of drama surrounding the Cavs and their biggest star since news broke that Kyrie Irving requested a trade out of Cleveland. Irving’s camp reportedly believes James leaked the request, and the relationship between the Cavs and Irving has reached the point where a trade feels almost inevitable. But James is breaking his silence to set the record straight on a few issues.

What you tend to find is when clubs buy a player for large amounts or smallthey will stagger these payments over a course of a contract, Wilson said, via BBC Sport.

Let’s assume PSG pay 200 million for Neymar and he signs a 10-year contractthey will pay 20 million per year to Barcelona. Of course, the selling club has to agree to that length of time.

You expect there to be a decent upfront payment though. When Cristiano Ronaldo signed for Real Madrid from Manchester United for 80m in 2009, the English club demanded the fee was paid in full before it was allowed to happen.

Regarding Neymar, I think you’ll probably see a substantial initial paymentlet’s say 100 millionand a couple of payments afterwards to make the balance.

So, now that it’s established there is a way for both players to move, it boils down to whether or not the two players really want the switch, and if the teams they currently play for are willing to pull the trigger.

Projected No. 1 pick Michael Porter Jr. well aware of NBA hype machine and pressure that comes with it

We’ve learned a bit in the past year about fathers, super-talented basketball-playing sons, college basketball, the NBA Draft and the power of a media swirl to suck in all of the above. So that was the first question for Michael Porter Jr., the projected top pick in next year’s draft (almost certainly a top-two selection), who will be playing at Missouri this year with his father as a member of the coaching staff.

Will Michael Porter who played at University of New Orleans, whose two daughters play for Mizzou, and whose son Jontay will join the Tigers, too follow the path laid out by hype magnet LaVar Ball?

The younger Porter’s face widened with a smile at the notion.

My dad is not that kind of guy, he said in an interview with Sporting News. He is real laid-back, he’s not going to take credit for much. That’s part of the reason I love him. He won’t be in the news for anything crazy.

He learned that Ewing Athletics had been re-launched, and the brand was teaming up with rapper Fabolous to drop a shoe, commemorating Ewing’s time on the 1992 U.S. Olympic Dream Team. Mason Jr. hit up Ewing to let him know he’d be coming through to the check the release event out, but he had other things in mind, too.

In my head, I was trying to find a way that I could connect with him and figure out how we were going to make this shoe, Mason Jr. said. It was just the story of Mase. What better way to tell it, if you have clothing line, than to have a sneaker to go along with it?

Mason Jr. met Ewing Athletics president/owner David Goldberg last July. They exchanged emails. Mason Jr. and his team began the process of selecting a color scheme and shuffling through design ideas.

Pau Gasol, Spurs agree on 3-year deal

It didn’t take Pau Gasol and the Spurs long to work out a new contract.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski? first reported Friday that the Spurs and the free-agent Gasol had agreed on a new three-year contract. The Spurs offiicially announced they had re-signed the 37-year-old Spaniard on Monday. Terms were not disclosed, but ESPN reported it to be worth $48 million with the third year partially guaranteed.

OK, so the last one probably isn’t that common, but according to Dennis Smith Jr., it’s exactly what the Knicks did at their pre-draft meeting. Back when Phil Jackson was still in charge, he and some other front office members and coaches took Smith out to dinner, and well, we’ll let him explain how it went down.

We went out to some restaurant and they had me eat some octopus, like an actual octopus tentacle. First time ever. I wasn’t going to try it, honestly. They kind of put the pressure on me to do it.
Even though Smith obliged and ate the octopus, the Knicks ended up not taking him. Instead, Smith fell to the Mavericks where he’ll probably have a significant decrease in octopus consumption.

As for the Knicks, forcing a 19-year-old to eat tentacles just goes to show why Phil Jackson wasn’t working in New York. Smith is probably glad things worked out the way they did.

There are also the off-court problems. Beasley has dealt with his fair share of legal and substance abuse issues. Hall of Famer Tracy McGrady even used Beasley as an example of what was wrong with the NBA back in 2013.

He’s not just talking about winning games because he goes on to say George obviously has his eyes on the Lakers and that if they add a second star player, George would be likely to go there with the obvious hopes of winning a title.
