Buddy Hield makes money sign at Kings GM during team’s fan fest as two sides continue contract negotiations

Buddy Hield makes money sign at Kings GM during team's fan fest as two sides continue contract negotiationsHield has until Monday to sign extension with the Kings. If not, he's open to signing somewhere else this summer When it comes to contract negotiations, some players like to keep things quiet and avoid as many distractions as possible. Buddy Hield is not one of them. He wants the Kings to pay him big money, and hasn't been shy about making that clear. Following some interesting quotes during the preseason, he kept up the pressure during the Kings' fan fest on Saturday. After throwing down an off-the-backboard alley-oop from De'Aaron Fox, Hield ran past Kings GM Vlade Divac and made money signs with his hands. Divac laughed, and the two hugged it out, but despite that humorous moment, it's clear Hield isn't joking about wanting to get paid. Contract extension negotiations continued at today's Sacramento Kings Fan Fest, as Buddy Hield sends..

Adam Thielen questionable with hamstring injury after spectacular touchdown catch

Adam Thielen questionable with hamstring injury after spectacular touchdown catchThielen is questionable to return in Week 7 Adam Thielen was able to put the Vikings on the board in Week 7, but it came at a cost. At the 5:25 mark in the opening quarter of Minnesota's matchup with the Lions, quarterback Kirk Cousins was able to roll out and complete a 25-yard touchdown pass to Thielen. The receiver extended, toe-tapped in the back of the end zone to complete the catch, but then slid out of bounds and into the stands. Thielen was immediately showing discomfort upon making the touchdown grab, was slow to get off the field as he was helped by trainers and had a noticeable limp. You can't throw it better than that.#Skol pic.twitter.com/IUAlDb2Xxc — Minnesota Vikings (@Vikings) October 20, 2019 The team later noted that he suffered a hamstring injury and his return is questionable. When the Vikings offense went out on the field for their next series, Thielen was watching from th..

AP Top 25 poll: Ohio State jumps Clemson for No. 3 spot in college football rankings It was a weekend of shakeup for the Big Ten in the college football rankings. Wisconsin's loss has become Penn State's gain in the top-10 as the Nittany Lions moved up following their win against Michigan on Saturday night, and Ohio State made a move towards No. 1 after blowing out Northwestern. It jumped Clemson to enter the top three. The Badgers' loss at Illinois was the most stunning result of the season and an early candidate for upset of the year.

Penn State moved up to No. 6, unable to break the top five after all five were impressive in victory over the weekend. Alabama remains No. 1 as Tide fans turn their concern to the status of Tua Tagovailoa and his recovery from a high-an..

Broncos reportedly to listen to Emmanuel Sanders trade calls, receiver open to deal

Broncos reportedly to listen to Emmanuel Sanders trade calls, receiver open to dealEmmanuel Sanders' days in Denver may be coming to a close The Broncos are likely to begin listening to trade calls for receiver Emmanuel Sanders as they continue to fall out of contention, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Denver is said to be looking for a second-day draft choice as compensation for Sanders, who would reportedly welcome a change of scenery. Schefter notes that the Panthers, Patriots, Eagles and 49ers are among the teams that are expected to be interested in acquiring Sanders prior to the Oct. 29 trade deadline. San Francisco's apparent interest in Sanders does back up what CBS Sports NFL insider Jason La Canfora reported on Sunday, noting the 49ers will be big players in trying to add a receiver at the deadline. The 32-year-old Sanders is in the final year of his deal, but is having a productive season thus far. He has 30 receptions for 367 yards and two touchdowns thr..

Clippers’ 2019-20 roster, projected starting lineup: Kawhi Leonard, Paul George unite to form title contender

Clippers' 2019-20 roster, projected starting lineup: Kawhi Leonard, Paul George unite to form title contenderThe Clippers jumped into title contention by acquiring the two superstars this summer The Los Angeles Clippers were the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference last season, but made the Golden State Warriors work in the first round of the postseason, winning two games at Oracle Arena to force the series to six games. Their Game 2 win, in particular, was one of the moments of the season when they came back from a 31-point deficit to stun Steph Curry and Kevin Durant. This season, the Clippers have their sights set on taking home the No. 1 seed in the West themselves. Just a few days after free agency began, they made the moves of the summer, trading for Paul George and signing Kawhi Leonard in the middle of the night to vault themselves into title contention. They also brought back Patrick Beverley and Ivica Zubac, and acquired Moe Harkless from the Trail Blazers in the four-t..
