AP Source: Rockets reach agreement for Terry (Yahoo Sports)

A person with knowledge of the deal says the Houston Rockets will acquire guard Jason Terry in a trade with Sacramento. The Rockets will also receive two second-round draft picks and send guard/forward Alonzo Gee to the Kings, along with at least one other non-guaranteed contract. The 36-year-old Terry started last season with Brooklyn and averaged only 4.5 points in 35 games. He was traded to Sacramento at the trade deadline and didn’t play the rest of the season as he recovered from a left knee injury.

They figured it would be simple, that they would just beat up on Turkey like they did Finland a night earlier. ”I guess we felt like last night’s game was pretty easy and tonight was going to be the same way, but Turkey came out and they gave us their punch from the beginning,” forward James Harden said. A night after crushing Finland by 59 in its biggest rout ever while using NBA players in the former world championship, the Americans couldn’t take control against Turkey until early in the fourth quarter after compiling a 17-1 run. ”So we’ve got to come out ready to play no matter who we’re playing against.” The Americans trailed 40-35 at halftime and Turkey led by six early in the third before the Americans could finally get the game into the quicker tempo they prefer and pull away to win the rematch of the 2010 gold-medal game in Istanbul.

Timberwolves have record week after trading Love (Yahoo Sports)

The Minnesota Timberwolves haven’t made the playoffs in 10 years and just traded the face of their franchise so he can go chase a championship with LeBron James in Cleveland. Kevin Love is gone now, and yet somehow the Timberwolves have parlayed that into a record-setting week at the box office. After completing the long-rumored trade that sent Love to the Cavaliers and brought Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Thaddeus Young to Minnesota, the Timberwolves have sold more than 300 full season-ticket packages in the last week. ”The organization, from president-level on down has just been re-energized,” Timberwolves senior vice president and chief revenue officer Ryan Tanke said.

When asked how much money she wanted to sell the Los Angeles Clippers, the wife of disgraced team owner Donald Sterling handed a piece of paper to her lawyer with two numbers: $1.5 to $2. In an exclusive interview Thursday with The Associated Press, she offered details about negotiating one of the richest deals in sports after her husband’s racist rant to a girlfriend prompted the NBA to ban him for life and force him to give up the team. ”I just did what I had to do.” For a half-century, Shelly Sterling had worked in her husband’s shadow, renovating and decorating their real-estate properties while he built a business empire. ”He said I want to come see you immediately.” She put him off until the next day and quickly called a girlfriend to find out who he was.
