Former Celtic Brandon Bass will sign with the Lakers, the team announced Sunday.
The terms of the contract have not been revealed because they are dependent on other Lakers moves in free agency, specifically their reported trade with the Pacers for Roy Hibbert‘s $15.5 million expiring contract.
A 10-year NBA veteran, Brandon Bass posted 10.6 points and 4.9 rebounds after playing all 82 games of the 2014-15 season. Bass also started all four Celtics playoff games.
He became expendable when the C’s agreed to a deal with free agent forward Amir Johnson. The...
A look at the action in the Red Sox farm system on Sunday:
TRIPLE-A PAWTUCKET RED SOX (38-47): L, 4-1, at Syracuse (Nationals)
— LHP Henry Owens (Boston’s No. 2 prospect at MLB.com) had just one trouble inning, with less-than-perfect defense played behind him, but it was enough to saddle Owens with the loss and drop his record to 2-7 on the season while tarnishing his final line: 6 2/3 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 7 SO (102 pitches, 65 strikes).
In the third, a leadoff walk and double against Owens gave Syracuse a 1-0 lead. After a bunt single put two aboard, Owens induced back-to-back ground balls to third, the second of which probably could have been a double...

In the 2011 Women’s World Cup final against Japan, the United States had a bunch of great chances early on but failed to take advantage of them. Those missed chances turned out to be costly, as the U.S. ended up losing that game on penalty kicks.
Four years later, the American women made sure they would have no such regrets. They scored four times in the game’s first 16 minutes and went on to beat Japan 5-2 to capture their third World Cup title and first since 1999.
Carli Lloyd was the star, as she scored three of the United States’ early goals to give her the first ever hat trick in a Women’s...
It wasn’t the greatest of Eduardo Rodriguez’s first eight starts in the majors, but even with the average performance he was still able to keep the powerful Astros offense in check.
While he needed 101 pitches to get through five innings, struggling with his command at times, the left-handed rookie allowed only one run on six hits while walking two and striking out a career-high eight batters taking a no-decision in the Red Sox‘ 5-4 win.
With Sunday being his eighth start, going 4-2 with a 3.69 ERA in those starts, he’s starting to feel more comfortable being in the big leagues.
“Yeah, I feel way better now here with everybody,” the soft-spoken Rodriguez said. “They try to teach me like how to pitch, all the starting pitchers try to help me a lot, so that’s what I feel right now.”
