Report: LaMarcus Aldridge to meet with Raptors in Free Agency

Pause for dramatic effect. Do not adjust your monitor. That name you see up there is not David Aldridge, noted NBA TV analyst, but is in fact LaMarcus Aldridge, noted NBA All-Star and free agent. Apparently, he plans on meeting with the Toronto Raptors brass to discuss his plans in said free agency. Let's all take a deep breath. According to league sources on RealGM, Aldridge will also be talking with the San Antonio Spurs (the presumed favourites) and the Houston Rockets (because they get involved in everything). There are obvious merits for him to join either team and It's worth...

Hey, Clay needs to stay

TORONTO — Trade Clay?No way.OK, before we go any further, there hasn’t been any indication from team officials that the Red Sox are thinking much about dealing Clay Buchholz before the trade deadline, which is now only a month away. And after the right-hander delivered eight dazzling innings in a 3-1 victory over the Blue Jays last night — with general manager Ben Cherington and jet-setting principal owner John Henry in the ballpark, no less — the Sox figure to be more resolved than ever to hold on to their longest-tenured starting pitcher.

Wade opts out of contract with Heat, elects to become free agent

Dwyane Wade has decided to forgo a $16.1 million deal with the Miami Heat for next season and become a free agent. The three-time champion and 11-time All-Star announced his decision Monday through a spokesperson. ESPN was first informed of the decision. Wade could have exercised an option to earn $16.1 million with the Heat next season. Instead he decided to roll the dice and test his worth on the open market.

Third’s a charm for Xander

TORONTO — Dustin Pedroia going down with a hamstring injury was supposed to be another flashing red light signaling the end of the Red Sox’ 2015 season.Forget about what he means to the team as a leader. Just look at what he was doing at the plate: a .306 average, .367 on-base percentage, 14 doubles, nine homers and 33 RBI. And he finally had become the No. 3 hitter the Red Sox needed (they entered yesterday ranked 24th with a .724 OPS from the three-spot).

Is there a market for Deron Williams? Nets seem to think there is

For months, as Deron Williams production waxed and waned, its inconsistency only highlighted by his 35-point performance in Game 4 of the playoffs, trade scenarios have been batted around.  Deron to Sacramento, Deron back to Utah, Deron across the river to New York, their credibility strained by the realization that he is getting worse. With $43.2 million left on his max contract, D-Will in the words of his coach is no longer a franchise player. "He's a good player, he's a solid player, but I don't think he's a franchise player anymore. That's just my opinion. He's a good player," said...
