Wolves owner listening to offers, Garnett hoping to buy

  Wolves owner listening to offers, Garnett hoping to buy MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Kevin Garnett wants to come back to Minnesota — as a Timberwolves owner. The longtime NBA superstar said Tuesday he is part of a group that is hoping to buy the franchise from Glen Taylor, who has owned it since 1994. Taylor said in a statement he was recently approached by a third-party group to discuss the future of the franchise. He said he's always wanted what's best for the team's fans and “ will entertain opportunities ” on the ownership structure of the Timberwolves and Lynx, Minnesota's WNBA team.

Ranking the best receiver corps takes all of that into account. We're not just talking about player-to-player Titans general manager Jon Robinson has been quietly building an estimable receiver corps for Jones comes to the NFL as the FBS’s all - time leader in receptions with 399—including an

From 2018-19, no pitcher in baseball was more dominant than New York Mets right-hander and reigning two-time Cy Young winner Jacob deGrom. Among the 128 pitchers to throw at least 200 innings the last two years, deGrom had the lowest ERA (by 16 points) and the highest ERA+ (by five points), and he led all pitchers in WAR. It's not particularly close either:

  1. Jacob deGrom, Mets: 17.4 WAR from 2018-19
  2. Justin Verlander, Astros: 14.2 WAR
  3. Max Scherzer, Nationals: 14.1 WAR
  4. Aaron Nola, Phillies: 14.0 WAR
  5. Gerrit Cole, Astros (now Yankees): 12.3 WAR

Three starts into the new season and deGrom has been as good as ever. He's allowed just four runs and 12 baserunners through 17 innings while striking out 22. Monday night he held the Braves to two runs in six innings. He struck out 10 (NYM 7, ATL 2).

Because he wasn't good enough already, deGrom has claimed another title early his season: he's now the hardest throwing starter in baseball. deGrom's fastball has averaged -- averaged -- 99.0 mph in his three starts. No qualified starter is within 1 mph of him (Brandon Woodruff is second at 97.9 mph). deGrom's slider has averaged -- again, averaged -- 93.8 mph. 93.8 mph!

I'm sure you're curious, so here's what a 94 mph slider looks like:

I have no idea how anyone gets a hit ever with pitchers throwing like that. Every base hit is a minor miracle.

Anyway, deGrom has always been a hard thrower. Last season he was third among all qualified starters with a 97.2 mph average fastball velocity. The year before he was fourth at 96.7 mph. Jumping from 96-97 to sitting 99 is a significant increase, however, and deGrom credits the velocity spike to being locked in with his mechanics.

'Splinter Cell' Animated Series in the Works at Netflix

  'Splinter Cell' Animated Series in the Works at Netflix An adult anime series adaptation of Ubisoft's hit video game franchise "Splinter Cell" is in the works at Netflix, according to an individual with knowledge of the project. "John Wick" writer Derek Kolstad will serve as the writer and executive producer on the series. Netflix has given the series a two-season, 16 episode order. "Patriot Games" novelist Tom Clancy developed the popular "Splinter Cell" franchise, a stealth action game which centers on black ops operative Sam Fisher, a former U.S. Navy SEAL who is recruited by the NSA to work for the mysterious Third Echelon division as he conducts covert operations across the globe.

Building a successful NFL roster isn't just about amassing the best collection of players. Because the league has a hard salary cap, front offices must also put Given everything he's proved as a pro and everything he means to the Patriots franchise , Brady's contract might just be the best one in the NFL .

"This break -- and even in spring, just working on my delivery -- I actually feel like it's coming out with less effort than in years past," deGrom said during a conference call following Monday's start. "I think just with that time off, I continued to work on my delivery, and feel like everything's kind of in line where I want it to be."

Velocity is not everything, we know that, but it's not nothing either. The harder you throw, the less time the hitter has to react. It really is that simple. Yankees lefty James Paxton is missing about 4 mph in the early going this season and his performance has suffered tremendously. That is not a coincidence. Velocity matters quite a bit.

deGrom had an unconventional development path -- he was a college shortstop who had Tommy John surgery soon after moving to the mound in pro ball, and he didn't make his MLB debut until a month before his 26th birthday -- so he has less mileage on his arm than the typical 32-year-old. Including the postseason, he's not yet reached 1,200 MLB innings.

Pitchers typically lose velocity as they age, that's the nature of the sport, though deGrom is such an athletic freak and he has less wear and tear on his arm than most pitchers his age that he's actually gaining velocity. Will it last? I guess we'll find out. Even if it doesn't, he's shown he can dominate at 96-97 mph. If he stays at 99 mph though, deGrom's best may still be yet to come.

Bulls fire head coach Boylen .
The Chicago Bulls have relieved Jim Boylen of his head coaching duties, the team announced Friday. Boylen went 39-84 over two seasons. "After doing a comprehensive evaluation and giving the process the time it deserved, I ultimately decided that a fresh approach and evolution in leadership was necessary," Arturas Karisovas, Chicago's executive vice president of basketball operations, said in a statement. "This was a very difficult decision, but it is time for our franchise to take that next step as we move in a new direction and era of Chicago Bulls basketball.
