Miami Marlins' outfielder Giancarlo Stanton officially named to Home Run Derby.
As well he should be. Very few players possess the type of power that Stanton has so it will be nice to see him attempt to put on a show in Minnesota next Monday night. Here's hoping that it doesn't affect his swing in the second half.ANALYST: David Kerr
The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.
McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year. Analysis: Spencer Silva
