The Lakers considered a run at Eric Bledsoe prior to signing Carlos Boozer. The Rockets and Milwaukee Bucks are other teams who have interest in Bledsoe.
Did the Lakers really choose an aging veteran forward over Eric Bledsoe? That is terrible if that is the case. The Suns offered Bledsoe a four year deal worth $48 million, which he declined for some dumb reason. The Rockets are chomping at the bit to sign a big time player after they were spurned by their free agent targets and Chandler Parsons left them for the Mavericks. ANALYST: Mark Kaplan
Jose Abreu was 0-for-4 on Saturday ending his seventeen game hitting streak.
During his seventeen hitting streak, Jose Abreu hit .318 and was only four short of his career high set last year in his rookie campaign. But he is now hitting .283 on the season and has fallen short on the power numbers so far this year. Abreu is hitting more ground balls (49.1%) this year yet his home run to fly ball ratio has fallen nine percentage points from 26.9 in 2014 to 17.1 this season. Since the whole offense has struggled, it is exacerbated when their best hitter is not hitting on all cylinders either. Abreu is solid, but maybe not worthy of the first round status he achieved after one season in the majors. Analysis: Greg Jewett
