Update: Dwyane Wade and the Heat have agreed to a 2-year, $34 million deal, with a player option for the 2015-16 season.
Just a two-year deal with a player option? Sounds like someone is looking to get paid and paid and paid and paid. Wade will take his sacks of money, convert it into gold coins and swim around in them like Scrooge McDuck. Then, when he's done, he'll look at the landscape of the NBA and see where he can go where he'll get the most money and the best chance to win another title. Or maybe just the first part. Who knows, these days? ANALYST: Howard Bender
Korean slugger Byung-ho Park is reportedly traveling to Minnesota to talk with the Twins.
With a $12.85M winning bid, the Twins now have 30 days to negotiate a contract with Park and his agent. If they don't, they will be refunded the money and Park will return to the KBO. The Korean slugger batted .343/.436/.714 with 53 home runs last season for the Nexen Heroes and hit 52 the year before. The KBO is notoriously hitter-friendly, so take those numbers with a grain of salt. He should still be able to hit for power, but given the dimensions of Target Field, 25 home runs is more of a realistic expectation. Analysis: Howard Bender
