Report: Welker nearly arrested in Colorado

According to a report in today’s New York Post, Patriots receiver Wes Welker was involved in a fight with security guards on Friday night in Aspen, Colo.

Welker and six of his friends arrived at a Patron tequila-sponsored event and tried rushing inside without checking in with party staffers, which led to security tackling the uncooperative group and a near brawl, according to sources.

Witnesses reportedly said that Welker and his friends still wouldn’t cooperate and demanded to be let in, but after security threatened to arrest them, they backed down and were kicked out.

Aspen police couldn’t confirm that Welker was among those involved in the incident, but confirmed that there was a record of a “lecture and release” incident at the restaurant where the scuffle took place on Friday.

Report: Saunders 'positive' about KG return

Kevin Garnett's former Timberwolves coach Flip Saunders is "positive Garnett, who is a free agent, will sign for another year with the Celtics," according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune (h/t Red's Army).

Not only did Saunders coach the 14-time All-Star in Minnesota for the first 10 years of his NBA career, including a 2004 MVP season, but he joined the Celtics coaching staff as an advisor during their playoff run after being fired by the Wizards 17 games into this past season.

"I was basically in on every team meeting, every players meeting, every coaches meeting, the locker room, so it was pretty all-inclusive," Saunders told the Star Tribune of his time in Boston. "It was a very good situation."

According to the report,...

Mashup: Ibaka criticizes LeBron's defense

League MVP LeBron James received the most votes from the league's coaches for the NBA All-Defensive team, but Thunder forward Serge Ibaka isn't impressed with his performance in the finals.

"LeBron is not a good defender," Ibaka said. "He can play defense for 2-3 minutes but not 48 minutes."

Kevin Durant scored 36 points on 12-of-20 shooting in the Thunder's Game 1 win when he was primarily being guarded by Shane Battier. Since James switched to him, Durant is still shooting well (23-of-41) but isn't getting as many looks, averaging 28.5 points as the Heat have won the last two games. That didn't convince Ibaka.

"LeBron can't play [Kevin Durant] one-on-one," Ibaka said. "They're playing good defense like a team."

Report: Sox shopping Youkilis 'everywhere'
By: DJ Bean

According to a report from Fox Sports, the Red Sox are aggressively shopping infielder Kevin Youkilis to teams throughout the league. 

Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi write the following:

The Red Sox have made clear that (a) Youkilis is available and (b) they are willing to include cash to facilitate a better player return. In response, a number of clubs have indicated that they have interest in acquiring the three-time All-Star.

“He’s being shopped everywhere,” said one high-ranking official with a National League club.

The report notes that no deal is imminent, but that the Diamondbacks, White Sox, Dodgers, Indians and Pirates are in on Youkilis.

Pats reportedly release Scaife, Ingersoll

The Patriots released tight end Bo Scaife and offensive lineman Mike Ingersoll on Monday, according to multiple reports. Scaife, 31, was signed earlier this month after the Patriots found themselves shorthanded at the tight end spot during OTA's and minicamp. The Texas product, who had played six seasons (2006-10) with the Titans before landing in Foxboro, noticeably struggled with his conditioning in his brief stint with New England. As for Ingersoll, he was a first-year offensive tackle from North Carolina who spent time with the Chiefs and Buccaneers last year. ESPN Boston was first to report the news of the moves.
