Tentative deal reached to end NBA lockout

After meeting for over 15 hours, beginning on Friday and ending in the early morning hours on Saturday, the NBA owners and players reached a tentative agreement to end the lockout.

"We've reached a tentative understanding that is subject to a variety of approvals and very complex machinations, but we're optimistic that will all come to pass and that the NBA season will begin December 25," Commissioner David Stern said.

The NBA regular season schedule would be shortened to 66 games under the proposed plan, with training camp opening on December 9th. The tentative deal still must be agreed upon by both a majority of the NBA owners and players.

Mankins fined $7,500 for late hit vs. Chiefs

According to multiple reports, all citing a league spokesperson, the NFL fined Patriots guard Logan Mankins $7,500 for a late hit against the Chiefs in Monday night's victory over Kansas City. Mankins was flagged for unnecessary roughness in the fourth quarter of the contest when he shoved defensive end Amon Gordon to the ground after the play; the Patriots were also penalized for an illegal shift on the play, resulting in a Tom Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez touchdown catch being taken off the board. Mankins now has incurred eight penalties this year, most on the Patriots.

Reports: A's hire PawSox hitting coach Davis

According to Maureen Mullen (via Twitter) and subsequently confirmed by multiple outlets, the A's have hired Chili Davis -- the hitting coach of the Red Sox' Triple-A Pawtucket affiliate in 2011 -- to be their major league hitting coach for next season. The report was subsequently confirmed by multiple outlets.

Davis spent 19 years in the majors, retiring after the 1999 season. He commenced a coaching career in the Fall Instructional League with the Dodgers in 2010 before the Sox hired him for their highest minor league affiliate. Davis will replace Gerald Perry, who was also hired by the A's from the PawSox for the 2010 season.

Ochocinco among those on injury list

FOXBORO -- Chad Ochocinco was one of three Patriots players absent from the media portion of practice Friday. The wideout was one of 11 members of the Patriots listed on the injury report, being identified as having a hamstring issue. Also not present at the beginning of practice for the Pats were linebackers Brandon Spikes (knee) and Dane Fletcher (thumb), with both ruled out.

Ochocinco joined Deion Branch, cornerback Devin McCourty, and safety Patrick Chung as those listed questionable. Wide receiver Wes Welker and guard Brian Waters were classified as probable.

According to reports out of Philadelphia -- where the Patriots will face-off with the Eagles Sunday afternoon -- cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha (knee) and quarterback Michael Vick (broken ribs) were both missing from the beginning of practice. Cornerback Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie, who has been battling a high ankle sprain and wasn't expected to be ready for Sunday, was on the practice field...

Heckmann nets 32 as BC tips Riverside in OT

Patrick Heckmann scored 32 points, including BC's final four points over overtime, to lead the Eagles to a 66-62 victory over UC Riverside in a consolation game at the 76 Classic in Anaheim, Calif.

Heckmann hit 9-of-13 field goals, 4-of-5 3-pointers and all 10 of his free throws. The rest of the team shot just 10-of-34 from the field. Matt Humphrey was the only other Eagle in double figures, with 11 points.

Phil Martin led UC Riverside (1-4) with 22 points. The Highlanders rallied from six points down in the final minute of regulation, hitting two 3-pointers. BC had a shot to win it, but Humphrey missed a 3-pointer in the closing seconds, and Gabe Moton's tip-in was waved off for being too late.

BC (2-3), which snapped a three-game losing streak, closes out play at the tournament Sunday at 4 p.m. in the fifth-place game, meeting the winner of Friday night's game between New Mexico and Washington State.
