0 of 30 Elise Amendola/Associated Press The NBA trade market closes at 3 p.m. ET Feb. 7. That might sound like it's still a ways off, but most clubs should have a good feel for their approach already. To be certain, those approaches can change in an instant. The trade pool is as fluid as its name suggests, and clubs must be prepared to operate under those conditions. Plus, teams might find themselves in situations in which buying, selling or standing pat could all make sense under different circumstances. In other words, these suggestions aren't necessarily absolute. And they certainly aren't set in stone. But with roughly a half-season of data at our disposal, we can help determine which clubs should be looking to add, subtract or maintain the status quo. 1 of 30 The Hawks have mastered at least one aspect of their rebuild: Their three most important players are also their youngest. The future runs through 20-year-olds Trae Young and Kevin Huerter and 21-year-old John … [Read more...] about Buy, Sell, Hold: What Should Your NBA Team Do at This Year’s Trade Deadline?

0 Have your say Being manager of the club you support is not some kind of free pass. Ask Neil Warnock, who often felt it was a disadvantage, despite his success. Ask Micky Adams, who departed Sheffield United after just five months.Being hailed “one of our own” by Blades fans is the ultimate accolade. Because it says far more about respect, nay reverence, for Chris Wilder as a manager than it does about his affiliation since boyhood.But it also speaks of the sheer power of that combination when it works. And of how Wilder really is “living the dream” in the truest sense.Danny Hall’s riveting story of the Wilder revolution, “He’s one of our own”, has the man himself vividly describing what living the dream actually means.I’m minded of how some managers have deliberately, and understandably, chosen to live outside the area of their clubs. For example, an ex-Blades boss in Danny Wilson (at various clubs). Nigel … [Read more...] about Alan Biggs Column: Chris Wilder’s dream job at Sheffield United chronicled in new Blades book
Congratulations to all of Eagles nation for making it through yet another preseason. It's never an easy task to go from the excitement of football returning to the "Are we there yet?" mentality of the fourth preseason game, but we are through to the other side. Christian Hackenberg will never pollute your television screen again. A lot of uncertainty remains down at the NovaCare complex, even as plans for the Week One opener against the Falcons begin to take shape. Doug Pederson will allegedly decide on his starter for the first game sometime today, but the outside world will be kept in the dark until the last possible moment. Carson Wentz's readiness is the week's big story without a doubt, but with Alshon Jeffery likely to miss time and other contributors sitting out large chunks of the preseason, it could be a tough start for the Birds. It's still full steam ahead for Howie Roseman and Co., as they attempt to finalize a roster suitable for a Super Bowl defense. The Eagles have a … [Read more...] about What they’re saying about the Eagles: Predictions for the final 53-man roster are in
Early arrivals to Target Field on Tuesday unaware the Twins traded Brian Dozier to the Dodgers figured it out quickly. Around 3 p.m., well before batting practice, third base coach Gene Glynn was out hitting ground balls to the presumed starting infielders. The sight of utility man Ehire Adrianza at second base instead of Dozier suggested something was up, and a quick scroll through Twitter confirmed it.Back in the clubhouse, Dozier said hasty goodbyes while packing for a dash to the airport and a flight to Los Angeles. Kyle Gibson, the Twins starting pitcher that night, hurried to the ballpark as soon as he heard the news and caught Dozier before he left. Dozier inherited the Twins leadership mantle from Torii Hunter, and Gibson said Dozier told him, “Don’t let these guys quit.” Gibson wondered how to tell his three-year-old daughter, Hayden, that one of her favorites no longer played here.Then Dozier was gone, leaving a clubhouse of angry teammates and an even … [Read more...] about What does the Twins sell-off mean for the future of Joe Mauer?
