Jason Kidd will be the next head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks if the Brooklyn Nets agree to the Bucks’ terms of a 2015 second-round draft pick in exchange for Kidd, a source with direct knowledge told ESPN on Sunday.  The source said the Bucks offered a second-round pick, but the Nets wanted a 2015 first-round pick in exchange, a negotiating chip the Bucks originally dismissed.

"If the Nets agree then there will be a deal, if they don’t then [the Bucks] are comfortable moving on and there will be nothing further to talk about," said the source. "The only thing (the Bucks) would give them is a second-round pick. They want a first. In the next 24 hours, there will either be a deal or there won’t be a deal."

The source said the Bucks only talked to Kidd about being the coach, not any kind of administrative position running basketball operations. The source said the negotiation was supposed to be between the owners, not involving any basketball personnel, before the story was leaked out by the New York Post. But the source said the negotiations are now being handled by Bucks general manager John Hammond and Nets GM Billy King.

The source said Hammond and high-ranking Bucks officials David Morway and Dave Babcock are all safe and that their jobs are not in jeopardy if Kidd is hired as coach. The source said current Bucks coach Larry Drew has not talked to ownership during this process.

"If Jason accepts then they will work it out [with Drew]," said the source. "If the deal doesn’t happen, then there will be an issue with Larry."

A league source told Saturday that Lionel Hollins has already emerged as “a very serious candidate” to become head coach of the Nets in the event Kidd does end up in Milwaukee.

"In a lot of ways he makes the most sense," a league source said of Hollins. "He represents stability, and stability is very important right now. He rules with an iron fist and gets a lot out of his players, so he’d be very high on the list right now, and likely the leader."

Sources said Bucks co-owners Marc Lasry and Wes Edens met with Kidd on Friday in New York City after asking for and receiving permission to talk to Kidd a few days before last Thursday’s NBA draft.

Lasry was familiar with Kidd and had a previous relationship but Edens did not. The source said Kidd told the owners that he would like to have the job. The source said Kidd was intrigued by coaching a young, rebuilding team that just added the No. 2 pick in the draft in Duke’s Jabari Parker and was looking for the challenge.

The source said the ownership wanted Kidd because he was able to handle a number of egos on the Nets in his first head coaching stint and guide them into the playoffs.

The ownership view of Kidd is that he was a great player, a good young coach and somebody who could be a good disciplinarian, the source said. The ownership saw someone who handled a lot of pressure in Brooklyn, held the team together and was one of the best teams in the East.

Driver Cuts His Hand After Celebrating A Win!!!!!!!!

Call it a celebration gone awry.

A champagne bottle exploded in Brad Keselowski’s right hand Saturday night after he hit it against a podium in victory lane while celebrating his win in the Quaker State 400, sending him bolting to the infield care center to receive four stitches in his right hand.

Keselowski, who won his second race of the season, later returned to the winner’s circle to complete his media obligations with a bandage on his hand. But he needed a fresh firesuit to do it — one without any blood on it.

NASCAR said the cut was between the 2012 Sprint Cup champion’s pinky finger and ring finger.

Pirates acquired RHP Ernesto Frieri from the Angels in exchange for RHP Jason Grilli.

Both hurlers began the season as the closer for their respective squads, and each lost their role recently due to ineffectiveness. Frieri will work in a setup capacity with the Pirates, but with Mark Melancon locking down the ninth inning and Tony Watson excelling in the eighth, it’s unlikely that Frieri sees any save chances in the immediate future.

Ronda Rousey Highlights Ronda Rousey Highlights
UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is well known for stirring up controversy in the MMA community with her sometimes brash words. She seems to be doing that a bit more now that she’s accepted her new role as the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s most hated — yet most marketable — superstar.

During a recent interview with USA Today Sports, Rousey (8-0-0, 8 submissions) declared her “MMA striking is the best in the game.” She then went on to explain why improving her standup arsenal remains a top priority.

"I’ve reached a certain level of competition where what’s required out of striking to come into the clinch to grapple is a lot more complicated than at the lower levels," Rousey added. "It requires much more high-level footwork and striking to be able to use grappling at all."

Rousey deserves a lot of credit for her constant improvement in the striking department. It’s obvious she spends a lot of time working on technique, so at the rate she’s progressing, her striking might very well be the best in women’s MMA at some point in the future.

For now, her striking certainly isn’t the best in women’s mixed martial arts. Matter of fact, it’s not even the best in the UFC.

One could easily make a case that fellow UFC bantamweight Sarah Kaufman (16-2-0, 10 KOs) is a few levels ahead of Ronda in terms of both striking technique and finishing power. Heck, Ronda would likely find herself in serious trouble if she was forced to stand and trade with Dutch striker Germaine De Randamie — who compiled a 37-0 pro kickboxing record before crossing over to MMA.

Then there are the ladies who are so far ahead of Rousey striking wise, it would literally take the UFC women’s bantamweight champion a few years — at the very least — to attain similar skills.

Let’s start with Holly Holm.

After racking up a solid 33-2-3 record as a professional boxer (winning several world titles along the way), Holm decided to give MMA a shot. She quickly established herself as a force to be reckoned with, amassing a 6-0-0 pro record, winning five or her bouts by some form of knockout.

As any sane person would expect from a former world champion, Holly has displayed solid boxing technique inside the cage. Footwork, fast jab, finishing power, it’s all there. She even added a few kicks to her striking arsenal, kicks she’s already finished three opponents with.

Without a doubt, Holly could teach Ronda a thing or two about the striking game.

Then there’s Ronda’s arch nemesis, former Strikeforce women’s featherweight champion, Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino. The same woman who sent the former face of women’s MMA, Gina Carano, into retirement.

Cyborg (12-1-0, 10 KOs) doesn’t just bring high-level muay thai technique, she combines her skills with explosiveness and finishing power. That — coupled with her solid grappling skills — was more than enough to get her past Gina’s solid striking technique and everyone else she’s faced inside a cage since her MMA debut.

Cyborg isn’t just significantly better than Ronda striking wise, at the moment, she’s the only woman who has a better than 50 percent chance of emerging victorious if she finds herself inside the Octagon opposite the new face of women’s MMA.

One thing Ronda has going for her is the rapid rate at which she improves her striking skills — and every other facet of her game, meaning the probability of her defeating Cyborg will continue to improve as time goes by.

For now, Ronda remains solely focused on her next title defense against fellow Olympian Sara McMann (the first bout in the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s history featuring two Olympic medalists). The two will headline the UFC 170 fight card set for Feb. 22 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nev.

DeSean Jackson Gang Signs
DeSean Jackson Gang Signs. Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson said he has never been in a gang and that any alleged gang signs he displays are just “hand gestures” dedicated to his childhood friends. Jackson, in an interview with ESPN The Magazine, said he knows people in gangs. But any implication that his hand gestures during games or on social media are gang-related is false, he said.

"If I score a touchdown or make a play and my boys at home can see me throwing up the area we’re from, that’s me showing them love," Jackson told ESPN The Magazine. "They weren’t fortunate enough to make it where I’m at. All my friends wanted to be in the NFL growing up, but they weren’t able to do that, and I was. That doesn’t mean I forgot about them. They’re my boys, I grew up with them, and I’m going to give them love."

Jackson’s mother, Gayle, said her son’s loyalty has always been unshakable. “Those guys gravitated toward him because he had structure in his life,” she said. “A lot of time I was trying to chase these cats away. I told him it would catch up with him and that people don’t understand, so he should leave those guys alone. He told me, ‘Mom, you can’t treat people like that.’”

Jackson, 27, signed with Washington on April 2, five days after being released by the Philadelphia Eagles. At the time, reports indicated the Eagles were troubled by Jackson’s alleged gang connections. This included an report, which quoted a Los Angeles police detective.

"Those were neighborhood Crip gang signs," the detective told, referencing some of Jackson’s hand signs during a game against the Redskins.

According to the report, Theron Shakir, a rapper signed to Jackson’s Jaccpot Records music label, and a man named Marques Binns were arrested and charged with a gang-related homicide in 2010. Shakir was acquitted in 2013; Binns, who said he doesn’t know Jackson, was convicted and drew a sentence of 15 years to life.

The Eagles have maintained that the decision to release Jackson was purely a football decision. In his first and only season under coach Chip Kelly, Jackson finished with 82 receptions for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns.

Lakers Draft Julius Randle
Lakers Draft Julius Randle with the 7th pick in the draft.
With the highest pick in franchise history since selecting James Worthy No. 1 in 1982, the Los Angeles Lakers drafted another power forward in Kentucky’s Julius Randle with the No. 7 selection on Thursday.

The 6-foot-9, 250-pound big man averaged 15.0 points on 50 percent shooting and 10.4 rebounds in his freshman season, leading the Wildcats all the way to the NCAA championship game.

"It’s the organization that I wanted to go to," Randle said while on a conference call from New York with reporters covering the draft at the Lakers’ practice facility. "I couldn’t be a in a better situation for me and I’m just really excited to get things started there."

 Tiger Woods Returns at Quicken Loans National.  Playing in his first tournament since back surgery in late March, Tiger Woods shot a 3-over 74 on Thursday in the first round of the Quicken Loans National at Congressional Country Club. The 14-time major champion had bogeys on seven of his first 12 holes before closing with birdies on three of his last six holes.

Woods’ round was characterized by several sloppy mistakes around the greens. Yet he drove the ball accurately, hitting nine out of 14 fairways. He also hit 10 of 18 greens.

"The score is not really indicative of how I played," he said. "I had four up-and-downs right there on 15 through 18. I had an easy pick on 2, don’t get that up-and-down and a wedge in my hand on 3 and I jerk it in the bunker."

Greg Chalmers finished with three straight birdies for a 66 and has an early one-shot lead over Ricky Barnes. Erik Compton, a runner-up at the U.S. Open two weeks ago, closed with four straight birdies to join Patrick Reed at 68. They were among 14 out of 60 players from the morning who broke par.

Only once in his career has Woods shot as high as 74 and gone on to win the tournament. It happened in the 2005 Masters, when he was tied for 33rd after the first round after shooting 74.Woods, who last played in a PGA Tour event in early March, said Thursday afternoon that the most difficult aspect of the round was getting into the rhythm of playing competitively.

"You play with your buddies all day for cash and stuff, but it’s just not the same," he said. "It’s not the same as tournament golf, different level. Adrenaline is rushing, and I hit the ball further out here than I do at home.

"I was trying to get the numbers and the feel. That didn’t start happening until midway through my front nine."

Woods, who said his back felt great, was pleased to be back in competition.

"I unfortunately have been in my career on the sidelines enough," he said. "So it’s always fun to come back out here and play against these guys, the best players in the world, and to get out here and see what I can do."

2014 NBA Draft Andrew Wiggins
NBA #1 Pick Andrew Wiggins
The NBA draft lottery Tuesday night will decide which franchise gets the No. 1 pick in June’s NBA Draft, and many expect former Kansas star Andrew Wiggins to go first. Wiggins, still only 19 years old, led Kansas to a 25-win season while scoring 17.1 points per game — all while dealing the pressure of being the most hyped player in the country.

Wiggins joined ESPN’s First Take Monday afternoon, and said he had a successful college career by his own standards

    “I think I had a good year. We accomplished a lot as a team. As for the hype… I think I lived up to my own expectations, my own goals. The hype that was portrayed by the media, no, I don’t think anyone could live up to that.”

He also declared that he should be the No. 1 draft pick on June 26th.

    “I think for me, Jabari [Parker], and Joel [Embiid], we all want to go No. 1. It’s not the end of the world if we don’t. There’s been a lot of great players that ended up to be the best ever, and great hall-of-famers that never were No. 1 and still had a great career…. I always put myself No. 1 above anyone else, that’s just me. I’ve got a lot of confidence in myself.”

The Mavericks and the New York Knicks have consummated a six-player trade that sends center Tyson Chandler back to Dallas.

The Mavericks, who immediately made reacquiring Chandler one of their priorities after their first-round playoff exit against San Antonio, completed a trade with the Knicks that was clinched by agreeing to take back the contract of New York’s out-of-favor guard Raymond Felton as well.

The trade cost Dallas two starters — point guard Jose Calderon and center Samuel Dalembert — along with prized young point guard Shane Larkin, reserve guard Wayne Ellington and the 34th and 51st picks in Thursday’s draft.  The deal was first reported by’s Marc Stein.

Chandler is the player Dallas has missed most since it decided to let go several key contributors in free agency after the team’s championship run in 2011.
Chandler, 31, wound up landing a four-year, $60 million deal in free agency with the Knicks that year, a deal that has one season remaining.

The departures of Chandler and Felton are believed to be just the start of a roster overhaul by new Knicks president Phil Jackson, with Jackson pursing as much salary-cap flexibility as he can in the hopes of convincing star free-agent-to-be Carmelo Anthony to stay.

"The journey to build this team for the upcoming season and beyond continues," Jackson said in the announcement. "We have added players with this move that will fit right in to our system while maintaining future flexibility.

"We would like to thank Raymond and Tyson for their time and hard work with the organization over the past few years."

If the Knicks keep all players acquired in the deal they will have saved $3 million in cap space for this summer but forfeited $5.2 million in cap space in the summer of 2015, when they are expected to chase big-name free agents. The Knicks are currently over the salary cap and will only be able to use trade exceptions to lure free agents this summer.

Sidney Crosby Wins MVP Award

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby won his second Hart Trophy as the NHL’s most valuable player Tuesday night at the league’s postseason awards ceremony in Las Vegas.

Crosby also collected the Art Ross Trophy as the league scoring champion and the Ted Lindsay Award as the players’ choice for the NHL’s most outstanding player.

Boston goalie Tuukka Rask won the Vezina Trophy, and Bruins teammate Patrice Bergeron won his second Selke Trophy as the NHL’s best defensive forward. Chicago’s Duncan Keith won his second Norris Trophy as the league’s top defenseman.

Andre Ringuette/Getty ImagesSidney Crosby won his second Hart Trophy and also earned Art Ross and Ted Lindsay honors at the NHL awards ceremony Tuesday.

Colorado coach Patrick Roy won the Adams Award, while Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon became the youngest player to win the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s top rookie.

Crosby cleaned up at the NHL’s awards show after a fruitful season that included a gold medal as Canada’s captain at the Sochi Olympics. He led the league with 104 points, including 68 assists in his fifth career 100-point season. Crosby scored in 60 of his 80 games, never going more than two games without a point for the Metropolitan Division champion Penguins.

Crosby hadn’t won the Hart Trophy since 2007, but the 26-year-old center handily beat out Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf and Philadelphia captain Claude Giroux. Crosby received 128 of the 137 first-place votes from a panel of hockey writers, while Getzlaf finished second in the balloting.

In his acceptance speech, Crosby thanked his teammates and family.

"I appreciate all the sacrifices you’ve made to allow me to play the game I love every day," Crosby said.

The winners of the league’s statistical awards also were recognized at the ceremony in the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas. Washington’s Alex Ovechkin accepted his fourth Richard Trophy as the NHL’s top goal-scorer, while Jonathan Quick and the Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings won their first Jennings Trophy for the NHL’s fewest goals allowed.

Dominic Moore of the New York Rangers won the Masterton Trophy, an award for perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. Colorado’s Ryan O’Reilly won the Lady Byng Trophy for his sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct after scoring a career-best 64 points while committing just one minor penalty all year.

Anaheim general manager Bob Murray was voted the NHL’s general manager of the year after building the Ducks into the two-time Pacific Division champions and the Western Conference’s top regular-season team.

Roy was chosen the NHL’s top coach in his first season behind the Colorado bench. The Hall of Fame goalie led the Avalanche from 29th place in the overall league standings to third this season, going 52-22-8 and winning the Central Division.

Bergeron beat out Los Angeles’ Anze Kopitar and Chicago captain Jonathan Toews for the Selke, which he also won in 2012. The smooth two-way forward, who also won the NHL Foundation Player Award for his charitable work, won a league-high 1,015 faceoffs while finishing second in the NHL with a career-best plus-38 rating.

Rask went 36-15-6 and finished in the top five in every major statistical category to win his first Vezina for Boston, which claimed the Presidents’ Trophy with the NHL’s best regular-season record. The NHL’s general managers chose Rask in a narrow vote over Colorado’s Semyon Varlamov, who finished fourth in the Hart Trophy balloting.

Keith comfortably beat out Boston captain Zdeno Chara and Nashville’s Shea Weber for the Norris, which he also won in 2010. Keith, who led all defensemen with 55 assists while leading the Blackhawks in ice time for the ninth straight season, is the only active NHL defenseman with multiple Norris wins.

MacKinnon was a runaway winner of the Calder, receiving 130 of the 137 first-place votes. The No. 1 overall pick doesn’t turn 19 until Sept. 1, beating Carolina’s Jeff Skinner in 2011 as the youngest player to claim the trophy.

Moore returned to the NHL this season after sitting out a year to be with his wife, Katie, who died from a rare form of liver cancer in January 2013. The 33-year-old forward thanked his family and teammates.

"I’ve had a lot of good examples of perseverance over the years, and none more so than my wife, Katie," Moore said. "So this award is very meaningful, and I’m very grateful."

Edmonton’s Andrew Ference won the King Clancy Award for humanitarian contributions to hockey, while Los Angeles captain Dustin Brown won the Mark Messier NHL Leadership Award for his charitable work.

Lebron James To Join the New York Knicks

Move over, Carmelo. NBA free agency just got a lot more interesting. LeBron James has informed the Miami Heat he will opt out of the final two years of his contract, according to multiple media reports. This places the NBA’s best player into the open market on July 1 and makes 2014 look like 2010 all over again. Four years ago is when high-profile free agents like James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Joe Johnson, Amare Stoudemire, Carlos Boozer and David Lee flooded the market. Now, with James opting out after the Heat’s disappointing Finals loss to the Spurs, the market is flooded again. The Bulls plan to pursue Carmelo Anthony and are widely considered the favorite to land him should he choose to leave the Knicks, which is in question. As for James, the four-time most valuable player openly has talked about how impressed he was with the Bulls’ pitch from 2010. However, the Associated Press reported that James’ decision to opt out does not indicate a desire to leave the Heat. In fact, most league observers view James’ move, in which he is walking away from two years and $42.7 million, a power move to help — or force, depending on perspective — Heat President Pat Riley into making roster improvements. If James does embark on a free-agent tour, expect the Bulls obviously to get involved. Their pitch in 2010 resonated strongly with James, particularly a discussion with coach Tom Thibodeau. In fact, sources at the time indicated to the Tribune that the Bulls were confident they almost landed James, despite a widespread public perception that he, Wade and Bosh were destined for the Heat all along. The Bulls are scheduled to have only $11 million to $12 million of salary-cap space when they proceed with the imminent amnesty of Carlos Boozer. They would have to get creative and sell off pieces for nothing to create more cap space. James and the Heat have advanced to the NBA Finals all four seasons he has played in Miami, winning twice.
