  Chiefs announce signing of DB Orlando Scandrick Orlando Scandrick already has a new home. Less than a week after Washington released him. the Kansas City Chiefs are bringing him aboard. ESPN’s Field Yates broke the news, and the Chiefs later confirmed it. And while it might seem strange to bring the 31-year-old in after his release, Washington didn’t cut him for his play.

In fact, they lost five of their six corners from last season — not just Peters.

One of the NBA's most respected players has decided to hang it up after 15 seasons in the league.

David West announced his retirement Thursday — a day after his 38th birthday — via a statement posted on Twitter.

West goes out on top, having won championships in his final two seasons with the Warriors. He came off the bench in all 176 of his regular-season and playoff appearances for Golden State, averaging just over 13 minutes the last two years, but his value off the court outweighed any statistics.

A first-round pick by New Orleans out of Xavier in 2003, West averaged 13.6 points and 6.4 rebounds in his career, scoring 14,034 points.

The 17 greatest athletes to be traded in their primes (Provided by USA TODAY Sports)

a group of people standing in front of a crowd: The slowest day on the sports calendar was anything but on Wednesday, as the day after baseball's All-Star Game was enlivened by the trades of two sporting superstars. Kawhi Leonard was finally dealt by the NBA's San Antonio Spurs, but not to the Lakers as many thought, but to the Toronto Raptors. Meanwhile, the Baltimore Orioles sold high on infielder Manny Machado, shipping him to the Los Angeles Dodgers as a three-month rental. To celebrate the deals, we take a look back at the 17 biggest athletes to get traded during their careers. Note: We're talking about established stars getting dealt, not players who eventually became stars (such as John Elway, Jeff Bagwell or Steve Young). And, for the record, Machado and Leonard weren't anywhere close to making this list. Yet.
