New #Mavs F Al-Farouq Aminu goes against New Orleans on Oct. 23. Aminu played the last 3 yrs for NO before signing with the Mavs on Mon.

Parsons will line up against the #Rockets on Oct. 7, Durant on Oct. 10, George on Oct. 12 and 18, and LeBron on Oct. 17.

Going to be real tough for Angels to catch A's now#Angels

Also think Chavez's recent struggles are almost as big as Hammel's. Need 4 starters in the playoffs and A's had 3 good ones. Lester makes 4.

#Bucks have announced the signing of free agent guard Jerryd Bayless. Joins Knight, Wolters, Marshall and Mayo in backcourt.

Dave Mason

Lou isn't happy about this trade from BOS perspective. He joins at 12:35 on KHTK RT @LouMerloni Oh boy, I'll just say this....not a fan

Dwain Price

The #Spurs will get their rings on opening day. So they'll probably host the #Cavs, #Heat or #Thunder on that day.

Frank Madden

IT REALLY HAPPENED! RT @ericbuenning: It's official: The Bucks have signed Jerryd Bayless

No doubt the A's are going to miss Cespedes in the middle of the order; but "two-time HR Derby champion" is NOT something Beane values.

#Mavs have a pair of preseason back-to-backers -- Oct. 17-18 at #Cavs and #Pacers, and Oct. 23-24 at #Pelicans and #Magic.

Michael Lee

Most surprising part of competition was when James Harden blocked a Kevin Durant layup & talked smack to him. Those guys were going hard

Diamond Leung

Yoenis Cespedes incredibly got thrown out by Billy Beane.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs will host OKC and reigning MVP, Kevin Durant, in a preseason game on Oct. 10.

Rampant Jets optimism needs to be quelled. Two critical positions - QB and CB - are too unpredictable. And first half of the sked is brutal.

Billy Beane has stolen twitter. He will be trading it later today for a second baseman.

What happened? Beane improvised and made yet another bet on the now vs. two years from now. It's a risk, but it's damned fun to watch.

They had to know what he wanted. Lost him for nothing. RT @tmckenna1: @Alan Hahn Yea or they could have just paid the dude.

(CONT.) From there, the #Mavs play at New Orleans on Oct. 23 and end preseason play at Orlando on Oct. 24. #CyberDust

Mark Kreidler

Good theater. RT @Joelsherman1 Asked #Angels GM Jerry DiPoto if Lester to #Athletics forces him to act further. 1 word answer: “No."

Tim Kawakami

Two days ago, Beane also said he probably wasn't making another big move & suggested Cespedes' pending 2016 free agency wasn't a big deal...

Dwain Price

(CONT.) After that the #Mavs play LeBron James in Cleveland on Oct. 17, play @ the #Pacers on Oct. 18, host the Grizzlies on Oct. 20 (CONT).

It’s good the Sawx didn’t deal Lester to the O’s, but they got a great return. Sorta what Yanks should have considered w/ Cano last year?
