Since I had to be up early in the morning, I was put up in Resorts International. My father was born and raised in Atlantic City, but I am not an “AC guy,” meaning I don’t gamble and I have a family.

The Suns offered Bledsoe a four-year, $48 million contract, but he is holding out for something closer to the $80 million maximum-level payday. CSN Northwest reported Wednesday that the player-team "relationship is on the express lane to being ruined." Bledsoe averaged career highs of 17.7 points, 5.5 assists and 4.7 rebounds last season despite missing time with a knee injury that required surgery.

For decades, pro squads have given up on entire seasons in order to develop young talent and secure high-end draft picks, but it wasn’t until 2013-14 the hyperdrive media and those who tend to fall in lockstep with their favorite TV/radio shows and/or writers started to kvetch about things.

A major overhaul will be voted on by the NBA Board of Governors in October that would bring balanced odds of landing the top pick to almost every team entered in the lottery process. ESPN reported the 76ers are strongly opposing that change. Philadelphia unloaded many of its assets last season and posted a 19-63 record, but still wound up drafting third overall behind the Cleveland Cavaliers and Milwaukee Bucks.

The jettisoning of Cosart, a 24-year-old Houston native acquired from the Philadelphia Phillies at the 2011 trade deadline, was moderately surprising.

Lee had just returned from the disabled list last week after an elbow strain sidelined him for nine weeks. If Lee proved himself to be healthy, he was considered a candidate for an August trade (he'd have to clear waivers before the Phillies could deal him). But his unfortunate Thursday night assured that won't happen. Lee had retired eight of nine batters he faced, before…
