NBA: Report, If Tim Duncan Retires, Spurs Make It Known They Are Going After Marc Gasol

IFWT_Gasol


San Antonio has been the league’s most consistent franchise for going on 18 years now, but two of the three players that have been in place for much of the team’s recent success — Duncan and Ginobili — are in the final years of their respective contracts, and could very well choose retirement at the conclusion of this season. If that happens, the Spurs aren’t going to pursue a long rebuild through the draft. They’re instead expected to go hard after one of the top unrestricted free agents that will hit the market this summer.

IFWT_McFaddn


The Dallas Cowboys got over the loss of DeMarco Murray pretty quickly, although that doesn’t mean they are better off for it. The Cowboys announced today they have agreed to terms with Darren McFadden, who has spent all of his injury plagued career with the Raiders. McFadden will not put up the same type of numbers Murray did, but if he can stay healthy he is not a bad option.

(Update) NFL: Report, He’s Back!! Darrelle Revis Returns To The Jets, More Than $40 Million Guaranteed

IFWT_Revis_Jets


New York Jets fans once again have a reason to live knowing the best defensive back in the entire NFL is back on their side. Darrelle Revis announced he agreed to terms to return to the New York Jets. Revis was asking for more than $40 million guaranteed and once details are announced the number from the Jets is expected to be that or higher. The terms of the contract expect to be for three years. Fresh off a Super Bowl win, Revis gives hope to the Jets again as they have an automatic advantage against the best wide receivers and quarterbacks in the league. The Patriots decided they didn’t want to pay him $20 million for one year, so they released him with hopes of bringing him back, but they knew the Jets were going to battle them and they won. The balance of power in the AFC East may finally be shifting towards other teams. This deal was easily the most anticipated of the entire free agency period.

NBA: Report, Clippers Sign Nate Robinson To 10-Day Contract

IFWT_Nate


The LA Clippers are 40-22, 2nd in the Pacific Division and currently No. 5 in the Western Conference standings. And today, they’ve reportedly added what they hope is the missing piece to the puzzle, signing free agent guard Nate Robinson to a 10-day contract. Personally I am not sure Nate helps them much considering the type of players they have, but at the very least he will provide good energy off the bench. The deal was announced just a short time ago and new teammate Matt Barnes already welcomed him via twitter. Check the gallery!

NFL: Report, Cowboys To Use Franchise Tag On Dez Bryant, Will Let DeMarco Murray Leave

IFWT_Dez88


It seems for now the loud rumors of Dez Bryant being involved in a nasty altercation and it being caught on video a few years ago have quieted down. The Cowboys either know it’s false or don’t seem to care much because they are prepared to use the franchise tag on Bryant, which would lock him in for next season at a guaranteed $13 million dollars. Even still, Dez is very upset with the situation and will likely skip all the off season meetings and workouts because he wants a long term deal. Perhaps even more surprising is the Cowboys decision to let DeMarco Murray, who was the best running back in the entire league last year, go ahead and test free agency.

NBA: Report, Kendrick Perkins To Sign With Cavs After Buyout From Jazz

IFWT_Perkns


Lost in all the chaos of the NBA trade deadline was the fact that OKC sent their big man, Kendrick Perkins to the Utah Jazz as part of the trade involving sending Reggie Jackson to Detroit. The Thunder gave up their enforcer and a guy with passion for the game, but the move had to be done. The Jazz had no intention of keeping Perkins so as they worked on a buyout reports are saying Perkins is still gonna come out of this situation pretty good as he will either sign with the Cavs or Clippers, both of which are legit contenders. Perkins will miss OKC and they will miss him too, but both sides are going to wind up just fine. The reports seem to lean towards the Cavs, so Perkins goes from Durant to Lebron…..not a bad way to stay in the game.

NBA: Carmelo Anthony & Kobe Bryant Talked Last Summer & Decided Playing Together Wouldn’t Work

IFWT_Melo-Kobe-2

Last summer had some big names in the free agent pool including Carmelo Anthony.  One of the teams Anthony met with was Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers.  The Lakers dropped out of contention pretty quickly as Anthony narrowed his choices down to the New York Knicks and the Chicago Bulls.  Everybody assumed it was because the Knicks could offer the most money and the Bulls had the best championship contending team but there’s another reason Anthony decided not to join the Lakers.
