Kevin Love told the Minnesota Timberwolves that he won't sign extension and went on to publicly announce that he likes the make-up of the Chicago Bulls and Golden State Warriors.
This should make it interesting as Love has put the Timberwolves in an awkward position, essentially forcing them into potentially having to trade their best player over the summer and forcing the rebuild a year early. This should make for an interesting soap opera in the NBA now so stay tuned for more. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Calvin Johnson (ankle) practiced on Monday.
The Lions will play the Thursday game again this week, so while they've had a full seven days to prepare, Megatron won't take his usual day off from practice. That has to be encouraging to plenty of fantasy owners as he and Matthew Stafford would like to build off such a strong Thanksgiving performance. Analysis: Howard Bender
Reds signed C Dayan Diaz to a minor league contract.
Diaz climbed up from High-A to Triple-A over two seasons in the Red Sox system and finished last year with a 1.89 ERA and 7.74 K/9 over 57 innings of relief at the highest point. He could find a place in the Reds bullpen, though he could be better suited as one of those guys who rides the shuttle between Louisville and Cincinati all year. Analysis: Howard Bender
