He did not attempt any free throws in the game...

After starting only five defensemen to begin the season, the team has recalled Nic Hague to serve as their sixth defenseman. In a corresponding move, Cody Glass has been assigned to the taxi squad. For the time being, it’s a move that the Golden Knights have to make. © Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports Although Vegas would like to have both young standouts in the lineup, they do not have the cap space to fit both. Even with both on entry-level contracts, the Knights’ $294K in cap space (even with the more affordable Hague on the roster) is not enough for an additional player. Vegas is stuck...

Tucker, who is still averaging 32.4 minutes per game for the Rockets this season, will be a free agent in the summer. Kelly Iko and Sam Amick of The Athletic reported on Monday that Rockets forward P.J. Tucker is not opposed to a trade should one materialize. Teams have reportedly contacted Houston about potentially acquiring Tucker. The report does add, however, that Tucker is prepared to play out the season with the Rockets.

Baltimore Ravens to release former Pro Bowl RB Mark Ingram Baltimore Ravens veteran running back Mark Ingram had to see the writing on the wall. The former Heisman winner and three-time Pro Bowler was a healthy scratch for each of their two postseason games, last Saturday’s loss to the Buffalo Bills in the AFC divisional playoffs included. © Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports Mark Ingram put up just 299 rushing yards at a clip of 4.2 yards per rush this past season for the Ravens. With Ingram set to count north of $6.2 million against the cap in 2021, it really didn’t make much sense for the Ravens to retain the 31-year-old back. That’s especially true with impressive 2020 second-round pick J.K. Dobbins set...

Arians pushed for Winfield to be named Defensive Rookie of the Year, even contrasting him with Young in the process.

    US Coronavirus: Expert sees a ray of sunshine, but deaths and variant cases are growing Trump lifts Covid-19-related travel restrictions for much of Europe, the UK, Ireland and Brazil Is there a rift between Jared Goff and Sean McVay? Overall, the Los Angeles Rams are coming off a pretty decent season that saw advance to the NFC Divisional Playoffs. The same can’t be said for quarterback Jared Goff. © Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Prior to suffering a broken thumb in a Week 16 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, Goff had regressed terribly in his fifth season with the Rams. It had led to some speculation that Los Angeles might not view the former No. 1 pick as the long-term solution at quarterback. At issue here is a recently-signed four-year, $134 million extension that reasonably links Goff to the Rams through at least the 2022 season. Now, there seems to...
    Caitlyn Jenner Reveals Why Shes Closest to Daughter Kylie Stock futures rise slightly after Wall Streets losing week Bills OC Brian Daboll to wait another year to land HC gig Before the Chargers surprisingly hired Rams defensive coordinator Brandon Staley to be their new head coach last night, Bills OC Brian Daboll was widely considered the favorite for that job. After missing out on the opportunity to coach Justin Herbert, it sounds like Daboll is going to ride things out in Buffalo and wait until next year for a head coaching gig. A source close to Daboll said he’ll “be the big name for head coach next year,” per Dianna Russini of ESPN (Twitter link). © Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports That would seem to indicate that Daboll isn’t a serious candidate for, or isn’t interested in, the Texans and Eagles jobs, which are the only two real openings left with the Lions expected to...

It’s unclear whether the two sides are close to an agreement. © Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports While Jon Lester expressed interest in remaining with the Cubs after they allowed him to become a free agent, there haven’t been reports of serious talks between Chicago and him since then. Washington would be the fourth organization for Lester, a 37-year-old who was previously with the Red Sox, Athletics and Cubs.
