Vance Bedford says he plans to rush two and drop nine into coverage vs. Baylor. I've heard more believable time-share presentations.
One key about KJ: years 3 and 4, unguaranteed. Different than in 1st round picks, where option has to be picked up well in advance.
Luol Deng on LeBron: "Everybody's going to talk about him being gone & me being here... But I'm not trying to be LeBron James."
And to Raiders fans mad at me for writing about Gruden: Your owner wants to hire him. I'm supposed to edit Mark Davis now?
Luol Deng on being looked at as LeBron's replacement: "No. I'm not trying to be anybody's replacement."
If you have a young QB like Derek Carr, the tendency is to try to maximize his value by hiring a proven offensive mind. Just generally.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, Utah Jazz fans, but McDonald's is not doing its amazing game-day McNuggets promotion this season.
Will be interesting to see how Noah plays early on. He's wearing big bulky knee brace on left knee.
It's one thing to eject due. Another thing to have him arrested. But to go extra mile of finding out where he works & calling? *Applause*
Klay Thompson told Warriors TV: "It's why I don't want to leave the Bay. It's too good. It's too nice out here."
Spurs open intrasquad scrimmage is today at 6. It's free to watch Pop's magnificent beard in person.
If Gruden passes, I still think Mark Davis is going to continue to target big names. Jim Harbaugh would have to be on a potential list.
I was wrong about presumptive favorite. Atreides is undefeated, but not as impressive wins as Vicar's In Trouble, winner of Super Derby.
Fox Sports Florida has announced it will televise the Magic's preseason home opener on Oct. 15 against Flamengo (Brazil).
Ask TB12 if coaches will be evaluated.
Vicar's In Trouble, presumptive favorte in Saturday's Indiana Derby, draws post No. 4 in nine-horse field.
K. Gleason of TH-Record asked J.R. about staying at famed Thayer Hotel: "It was a normal hotel. It's not like the Ritz Carlton or anything.'
ESPN's Chris Broussard is at training camp in St. Francis today and is scheduled to interview Jabari Parker.
The A’s lost for two reasons: 1. Pitchers not making simple moves to try to hold base runners. 2. Bad overall defense.
ESPN anchor Sage Steele is in OKC today to report from Thunder camp. Interviews w/ Durant, Westbrook & Brooks will air on SportsCenter.
Documentary (and tutorial) that should be happening right now: Steve Nash teaches Jeremy Lin how to play point guard.
Do you really think A's, relying on Sogard, Punto, Fuld, Norris, Vogt, Lowrie, etc., is "best team?" C'mon, they played well early.
The one year deal signed by rookie K.J. McDaniels makes him restricted free agent after this season. He could be starting 2 guard this year

The Sharette Dixon Classic is set for 10/11 @ the Gauchos Gym.Expected: Rawle Alkins, Chris Silva, Desure Buie, Trevon Duval. Rosters coming
My parents were English teachers. "Collapse" way too strong. "Collapse" would have been if A's failed to get into postseason.
Do you have liquid sugar you could just inject into my veins? No? Just the five cookies for me, then.
For lunch at Eagles practice, one sportswriter grabbed five cookies. Five. He’s taking it easy today, I guess.
When I asked how much he's worked on his three-point shooting, Devin Harris was brief but clear. "A ton. A ton."
I was born Sept. 26, 1964, near Philly -- amid Phillies' 10-game losing streak to miss postseason. I know collapses and this wasn't one.
Devin Harris worked on his spot-up shooting in anticipation of playing more off the ball. "I just want to be comfortable enough to do so."
A collapse is when a team with superior talent or in total control completely loses it. A's were nice team & made postseason.
You can't call what A's did a "collapse." They were WC team. Now, Dallas Mavericks in '07 vs. Warriors? That was a collapse.
Once again, I’ll say that I rarely have had problems with NBA League Pass. Stop trying to stream games using dial-up.
The first Heat-Cavs matchup is actually tonight. Both teams are live streaming their scrimmages at 7 p.m.
FYI: Cavs will stream their intrasquad scrimmage at 7 p.m. ET tonight.
You can rule out Kevin Garnett from joining the coaching ranks after retirement: "Absolutely not. Hell no."

A question for the Iowa chapter of Wolves Nation: How long does it take to drive from the Twin Cities to Cedar Rapids? 3 1/2 hours?
NBA League Pass will be available on several platforms in 2014-15, including Xbox One for first time. Video on demand will be available, too
Philbin said Dolphins like LaMichael Jamesl speed and playmaking and want to see what they have in him. He is on practice squad
James' new series for Disney XD will be produced in association with ESPN Films and James' Springhill Production Company.
Las Vegas' Westgate SuperBook projects the Heat as the No. 6 seed this year. Their o/u win total is 43.5.
That's not a knock on Jolly, but why burn the redshirt with three other guys (Chaney, Zach Welch, Royds) with game-experience available.
Nothing official, but the vibe I got out there this morning is MU would rather not go to true frosh Michael Jolly if it doesn't have to.
LeBron James & Maverick Carter are exec. producers of Disney XD's 'Becoming,' which will profile journeys of star athletes, including James.
OK what are everyones worst memories of Jeter
Royds played A-back at Navy in 2012 and 2013, so this gives Monmouth another option out of the backfield with KB Asante out for the season
Main piece of news out of Monmouth practice this AM is redshirt sophomore Ed Royds has been moved from DB to running back.
Winter get another 5 T's, then spring get another 5, and that puts him on pace for his career average of 15 T's a year.
Canadian women crush Czech Republic 91-71 and head to quarters at FIBA Women’s Worlds. Huge win for the program. Australia next.
Great get for Oklahoma State in Jawun Evans. Will Eli Thomas follow him there?
Cavs officially sign STEVE HOLT!
Resounding 91-71 win for Cdn women over Czech Republic guarantees top 8 finish at worlds, Big win over a good team; Aus in 1/4s Friday
Determined to have a great day ...
Referring to that last RT about Paul George, it was remarkable to see pictures of him at media day without crutches or even a boot. Amazing.
I don't think McDaniels' contract will influence his playing time. Much more important to evaluate and develop K.J. than save $1-2m.
The Cavs announce they've signed Stephen Holt, a guard out of St. Mary's, to the training camp roster
So it appears KJ McDaniels has signed a one year deal with the team and will be at training camp today.
What's interesting is K.J. was upset that he wasn't a first round pick...where he would have gotten a 2 year guaranteed, 2 team option deal
I mentioned yesterday that Mark Bartelstein had negotiated the Parsons deal with Houston. Wonder if how that turned out influenced KJ's deal
Tip of the hat to those who stayed to the end of Tip Off today you got the two best nuggets from yesterday - 1 on Favs the other on Dante
Can't argue John Wall's comments. You have to be a starter to claim that you are the best "starting" backcourt in the league.
Canada leads Czech Republic 65-55 after 3 in elimination game at women's world basketball championships; winner gets Aus in quarters
With great shame, I admit that I let myself fall asleep last night after the A’s scored in the top of the 12th.
The Magic will practice twice today. They're starting their 1st practice now. All players are injury-free.
Whatever ESPN games the MAAC gives Monmouth, they do not include whatever MU decides to broadcast via its own deal with ESPN3.
It's Wednesday. Here's Walt Williams and his sorely-missed tall socks. http://t.co/iBop2jcOtn
76ers also waived injured guard Pierre Jackson - they had guaranteed him $400K, so gets his cash to rehab. Likely bring him back next summer
Word on the street is the MAAC's ESPN broadcast will be out this afternoon
R. Starks leaving practice bubble as back heals.Moreno not present at start of final practice before 4 Dolphins off days.all others working
I'm fine with champagne celebrations after every win but can we agree there's no such thing as Wild Card Champions?
Over/under on how many times 37-year-old Ginobili dives on floor in tonight's scrimmage: 3.
What's a better sport: preseason basketball or preseason hockey?
Canada takes 44-32 lead at half over Czech Republic in elimination game at women's world basketball championships
Can't really have KJ here and unhappy. If he wanted a 1 year deal, playing chicken until he signs 4 year deal would have been bad.
76ers will still be able to restrict his free agency next July, but puts him in a position to have market place set his price going forward.
Have talked to several agents who have urged their clients to take injury insurance policy and roll the dice, especially if they'll play.
McDaniels is first player pass on 76ers structure of four-year deals with non-guaranteed seasons in three and four. He bet on himself.
K.J. McDaniels told me this summer he truly feels like he should have been a Top-20 pick. Why get paid like a second rounder for 3-4 years?
K.J. McDaniels non-guaranteed one-year deal is becoming a viable strategy for 2nd rounders -- if he plays well could get a huge raise.
K.J. McDaniel's 1-year non-guaranteed deal means one thing: His reps are banking on an impressive rookie season, getting paid this summer.
My read regarding K.J.'s one year non-guaranteed deal: KJ didn't want to lock into long term, low salary deal. Thinks he can prove himself.
Now "everyone's reverting back to the natural instinct of pushing people to the sideline and using the sideline and baseline as defenders."
And while we're at it, it occurs to me that heading into 3rd season Jones, D-Mo have most uninterrupted tenure with team of Rockets players.
RE: KJ wow
Shump said past 2 years, defense was told to send opponents to the middle, which, he said, was opposite of how people are taught.
K.J. McDaniels, 32nd pick in draft, makes fascinating move: Signs 1-year, non-guarantee w/ 76ers, becomes RFA in '15, sources tell Yahoo.
Shump talked about the defense Fisher installed on Day 1, which he says was more traditional than past 2 years.
Picks 8-11 in 2011 draft: Jake Locker, Tyron Smith, Blaine Gabbert, J.J. Watt. That's gotta make the Titans and Jags sick.
I'm going to try and fail to go back to sleep now. Love u, jet lag
Tony Romo's QBR from first 2 weeks, when he practiced every day: 19.9, 63.1. Romo's QBR last 2 weeks, when he sat out Wednesday: 99.1, 96.0
Ex-NBAer Julian Wright who signed a tryout deal in Greece, arrived injured and failed his physical. He's been released.
The NBA season tips off this month! On behalf of the entire league... http://t.co/RKubKxF9p4
