Warriors Acquire Jason Thompson from Philadelphia in Exchange for Gerald Wallace

The Golden State Warriors have acquired forward/center Jason Thompson from the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for forward Gerald Wallace, the team announced today. As part of the deal, Philadelphia also receives cash and draft considerations.

“We’re very happy to add Jason to our roster,” said Warriors General Manager Bob Myers. “He has a proven track record in this league and adds considerably to our team’s depth, which was a big key to our success last season and will be moving forward.”

Thompson, 29, owns career averages of 9.4 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 26.5 minutes over 541 regular-season games (405 starts) in seven seasons with the Sacramento Kings, hitting 49.7 percent from the field. In 81 games last season (63 starts), he tallied 6.1 points and 6.5 rebounds in 24.6 minutes per contest. The 6’11” forward/center recorded seven double-doubles in 2014-15, including his first career 20/20 game when he tallied 23 points and a career-high 22 rebounds on Jan. 17 vs. the Clippers, one of only three players to post those numbers in a game last season (DeMarcus Cousins, Kenneth Faried).

Pacquiao will be back in February or March, says Koncz

 Top Rank promoter Bob Arum surprised a lot of people this week when he said that his No.1 money fighter Manny Pacquiao could be back before the end of 2015 to resume fighting once again.

This was surprising because Pacquiao suffered a partial tear of his right rotator cuff, and injury of that severity takes time to come back from following surgery. Pacquiao’s surgery on his shoulder was last May, so asking him to come back just six to seven months after the injury is both risky and crazy.

Pacquiao’s adviser Michael Koncz is saying that there’s no way that he’ll be coming back in 2015. Koncz believes that Pacquiao won’t be back until the early part of 2016, in February or March at best.

Khan thinks he could face Pacquiao in 2016

Amir Khan (31-3, 19 KOs) says a fight between him and Manny Pacquiao is possible. He thinks that because of Pacquiao’s shoulder injury, he’ll have to wait until 2016 before the fight can happen.
 
Khan believes that Pacquiao would be open to the idea of fighting in Dubai. That’s a place that Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum is now staging fight cards, and Khan sees that as the perfect venue for them.
 
“Yeah, maybe Pacquiao; that fight could be massive,” Khan said via Sport360.com. “I’d love to take that fight obviously. I think that fight would be amazing for me. Styles make fights, and that’s another fight that would suit me as well. If that fight comes off, it would probably take place next year in Dubai or something. Dubai would be amazing. It would be a massive fight. There’s a lot of Filipinos in Dubai,” Khan said.

Josh Smith: 'Harder on me' comment wasn't about money

Josh Smith created something of a controversy last week when he made comments related to how his new one-year deal with the Los Angeles Clippers was going to put a strain on him and his family, saying his contract is going to make it “harder on me this year.”

The fact that Smith is slated to make approximately $6.9 million during the 2014-15 NBA season ($1.5 million in salary along with the $5.4 million per year the Detroit Pistons will be paying him annually through the 2019-20 season after waiving him last year) rubbed many the wrong way. Some suggested that Smith was out of touch, even greedy.

In an essay titled ”Facts Only” published on The Players’ Tribune, Smith says his comments were misconstrued.

Bethe Correia trash-talks Ronda Rousey in heated UFC 190 face-off

Bethe Correia might be a massive underdog — possibly the biggest in UFC history — but that's not going to stop her from going after women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey with everything she's got leading into their fight Saturday night.

Thursday marked the first time the two fighters came face to face since a heated staredown several months ago after their bout was announced for UFC 190. And it didn't take long for the words to start flying.

But it wasn't Rousey who was flapping her gums and trying to intimidate her Brazilian opponent.

Rockets re-sign McDaniels to multiyear deal

The Houston Rockets have re-signed restricted free agent K.J. McDaniels to a multiyear deal.
 
McDaniels came to Houston in February in a trade with Philadelphia. He appeared in 62 games as a rookie last season for the 76ers and Rockets. He averaged 7.9 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.1 blocks.
 
The 6-foot-6 forward was the 32nd overall pick in the 2014 draft.
 
Terms of the deal weren't released.
 
The move comes a day after Houston shipped four players and a 2016 lottery protected first-round draft pick to Denver in exchange for point guard Ty Lawson.

Ronda Rousey thinks third meeting with Miesha Tate may be the last

UFC women’s bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey already is talking up a third fight with Miesha Tate, two days after her longtime rival secured a meeting with the winner of Rousey’s sixth attempted title defense opposite Bethe Correia at Saturday’s UFC 190.

“If she’s the best competitor and she’s who the fans want to see then, yeah, I’m extremely interested in doing it,” Rousey (11-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) said during a media teleconference in support of the pay-per-view event at HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro.

Following Tate’s (17-5 MMA, 4-2 UFC) unanimous decision over Jessica Eye (11-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC) in the co-main event of this past Saturday’s UFC on FOX 16, UFC President Dana White confirmed that the ex-Strikeforce champ, whom Rousey defeated to eventually become the first women’s champ in the UFC (and later beat in a rematch), is the No. 1 contender in the women’s bantamweight division.

Issues holding back Mayweather’s September 12th fight

WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr’s September 12th fight is being held back by issues involving his future fights if he chooses to continue fighting beyond his September 12th date.

According to Dan Rafael, Showtime/CBS wants rights to Mayweather’s future fights if he decides to keep his career going after his next fight date. Supposedly, this is going to be Mayweather’s last fight of his career in September. However, if he changes his mind about retiring and decides to sign up with HBO to go for his 50th win of his career, Showtime/CBS is looking to protect their investment, says Rafael.

Stephen Espinoza, the vice president of sports for Showtime, totally disagrees with Rafael. He says none of this is true about Showtime holding up Mayweather for his September 12th fight.
