Report: Mankins won't sign, wants trade

Patriots Pro Bowl offensive lineman Logan Mankins said Monday he has no intention of signing his restricted free agent tender and wants to be traded.

In an interview with ESPN, he described himself as being "frustrated," and said he has no intention of signing his $3.26 million tender.

"I want to be traded," he said. "I don't need to be here any more."

Mankins has until 11:59 p.m. ET to sign the one-year tender, but it doesn't sound like he'll do that.

"There is no way that I'm signing that thing," he said.

Game 5 highest rated since 2004

According to preliminary ratings, Game 5 of the Celtics-Lakers series was the highest-rated NBA finals game since 2004.

Sox doc: 'I think that we've earned [trust]'

Red Sox team medical director Dr. Thomas Gill told WEEI.com that he does not believe that any missteps were made in the diagnosis and treatment of both outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury's ribs and infielder Mike Lowell's thumb. While both Ellsbury and Lowell have expressed concerns about how their injuries were handled (with Lowell saying that his treatment was "frustrating" and Ellsbury suggesting he was "misdiagnosed"), Gill said that there the medical course followed by the club with both players was appropriate.

 

Gill suggested that, despite the concerns of the two players, the team's medical operation has offered "huge value-added" to the Red Sox. Part of that, he said, is a byproduct on the efforts of the medical team to win the trust of the players.

 

“Baseball is a sport based on trust,” said Gill. “Trust is something that has to be built. You can’t come in and demand...

Judge: Antoine Walker will face trial

Former Celtics forward Antoine Walker appeared in a Las Vegas court Monday and was ordered to face trial on felony bad check charges that he failed to repay almost $1 million in gambling debts to three Vegas casinos. The judge noted that Walker had yet to make any progress repaying some $770,000 he agreed to pay in restitution, court fees and penalties.

 

Walker filed for bankruptcy last month in Florida, and the Las Vegas prosecutor indicated that he is working with Walker's lawyer on a deal that would avoid forcing Walker to serve jail time.
