NBA free agency rumors: Rockets confident they’ll re-sign Chris Paul
Can’t nobody guard him – with the exception of an old 2004 Metta World Peace, but I was suspended so I wouldn’t be able to play against him anyway.
The Cavaliers recently explored a potential trade for Kawhi Leonard, according to a report from USA Today.
Cleveland contacted the Spurs to discuss a possible deal for the 26-year-old star. But, the trade talks did not gain traction, according to the report.
The Cavaliers finished last season with a 50-32 record. They advanced to their fourth straight NBA Finals, where they were swept by the Warriors.
Cleveland star LeBron James could opt out of his contract and become a free agent this summer. The Cavaliers are reportedly interested in a trade for Hornets point guard Kemba Walker.
Eric Thames homered off Mahle, his 14th home run in 22 career games against Cincinnati. Thames hit 10 last year, the most by a Brewers player against the Reds in one season.
The last pinch-hit grand slam by a Reds player came from Chris Heisey on April 13, 2014, against Tampa Bay. Lorenzen’s three homers this season are the most by a Reds pitcher since Micah Owings had three in 2009. The last major league pitcher to homer in three straight at-bats was Colorado’s Mike Hampton in 2001.
In the past eight days, Reds pitchers have produced four homers — three by Lorenzen, one by DeSclafani. For the season, Lorenzen is 4 for 6 with three homers and six RBIs.
Mahle’s 12 strikeouts were the most by a Reds pitcher since Amir Garrett also fanned 12 on April 19, 2017, against the Orioles. The club record for strikeouts by a rookie is 15 by Gary Nolan on June 7, 1967, against the Giants.
