Updates & News
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.

George Springer went 2-for-4 with a double and one RBI in the Astros 6-2 loss to the Tigers on Friday.
Springer has now collected two hits in three straight games which has helped raise his average from .195 to .214 on the season. A concussion sidelined Springer in early May but he has played well since his return, hitting .282 with six runs, two home runs and four RBI. Fantasy owners will have to deal with the low batting average as Springer is once again on pace to rank among the league leaders in strikeouts but he’s already reached double-digit stole bases and could flirt with a 30/30 season given his potential.
