The Pacers traded him after George told them he planned to leave Indiana as a free agent next summer.“As the NBA’s statement made clear, we cannot comment about the specifics of any ongoing investigation,” Lakers spokeswoman Alison Bogli sai. “We can confirm, however, that we are cooperating fully with the NBA in the hope of clearing our name as soon as possible.” In this Wednesday, July 12, 2017, file photo, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George answers a question at his first news conference since Oklahoma City’s blockbuster trade with the Indiana Pacers, in Oklahoma City. On Sunday, Aug. 20, 2017, the NBA said it has opened an investigation to see if the Los Angeles Lakers tampered with George while he was under contract with the Indiana Pacers. APNEW YORK — The NBA is investigating whether the Los Angeles Lakers tampered with All-Star forward Paul George while he was under contract with the Indiana Pacers.The Pacers asked the league to open the probe.ADVERTISEMENT There has been speculation for some time that George has wanted to join the Lakers. Under NBA rules, teams are not permitted to attempt to sway any player who is under contract with another team.If the Lakers are found to have tampered, the NBA could issue any combination of fines, forfeiture of draft picks or suspensions of those who were deemed to be involved. Tampering, the league has said, can be either direct or indirect — and an interview that Lakers President Magic Johnson did earlier this year on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” did little to quell speculation about George’s potential future in Los Angeles.In that interview, Kimmel asked Johnson what constitutes tampering, and if he would be allowed to speak to George if they happened to cross paths.“We’re going to say hi because we know each other,” Johnson said. “You just can’t say, ‘Hey, I want you come to the Lakers,’ even though I’m going to be wink-winking. You know what that means, right?”George will be a free agent in 2018.ADVERTISEMENT He’s coming off a season in which he averaged a career-best 23.7 points per game, and is joining a Thunder team that already has reigning NBA MVP Russell Westbrook.“I’ve been wowed ever since we landed,” George said last month after arriving in Oklahoma City. “I got a real welcoming, and this feels like home.” LIST: Class, gov’t work suspensions during 30th SEA Gameslast_img read more

Morris’ 88th minute goal gives US Gold Cup title

Acosta collided with Blake and appeared to kick the keeper’s right hand before Jamaica’s Damion Lowe cleared. Blake’s hand was wrapped but he couldn’t continue and was replaced by Miller four minutes later. As Blake left the field, he acknowledged the cheering fans with a wave of his left hand, then later emerged for the medal ceremony with his hand bandaged after receiving seven stitches. Nothing was broken.“It was a very unfortunate situation. What to say? Very sad situation,” Whitmore said.Altidore put the U.S. ahead with a curling shot past Miller’s outstretched right hand into the upper corner of the net just beneath the crossbar, his 39th goal in 108 appearances.Lawrence, who scored in a 1-0 semifinal win Sunday against Mexico, took another corner kick in the 75th minute moments after Alvas Powell’s shot from close range deflected off Graham Zusi — a sequence that had Howard yelling at the defense.Using a lineup with about half its regular starters — the rest are in preseason with European clubs — the U.S. reached its record 10th final. The Reggae Boyz were a surprising final opponent after they stunned Mexico in a semifinal Sunday to reach the title match for a second straight time.With 18 of 22 starters from Major League Soccer, this was a rematch of the 2015 Gold Cup semifinal won 2-1 by Jamaica at Atlanta.

CWG lane trial begins; Delhi, Gurgaon roads choked

first_imgA Delhi transport bus drives past a lane dedicated for Commonwealth Games athletes and delegates in New Delhi.Just a trailer of the Commonwealth Games (CWG) show on the roads in the city and in Gurgaon in the national capital region was enough to turn the situation chaotic everywhere on Wednesday. The day started with chaos for the motorists in the millennium city as they started for office early in the morning. The impact soon started showing on Delhi roads connecting Gurgaon and the adjoining areas. The situation is set to worsen later in the day as the police have been doing a trial run for the dedicated CWG lane, which comes into effect from September 20, on prominent roads to be used for the Games purposes. Long traffic snarls were reported from various parts as the city government embarked on CWG lane trial exercise for the upcoming Games. Residents of Gurgaon were the first to suffer as they battled huge traffic chaos. Due to diversion and traffic regulations for CWG trials, there was bumper to bumper traffic near HUDA City Centre, IIFCO Chowk, Mehrauli Road and Shankar Chowk Tower. The Delhi-Jaipur Road (NH-8) also witnessed heavy congestion from Shiv Murti to Rajokari toll gate. The traffic jam on the highway stretched to over 3 km. Traffic advisoryTo give motorists an exposure to traffic movements during the Games, trials will be conducted for three days starting on Wednesday. From 12 noon to 2 pm, motorists have been advised not to drive on the lanes with broad blue bands bearing the CWG logo. The city police have advised people to avoid certain stretches to escape traffic snarls. These stretches are Games Village to Yamuna Sports Complex; Lodhi Road Madrasa to Lodhi Road flyover; Bhishm Pitamah Marg from Lodhi Road T-point to Siri Fort Complex; Ring Road from Bhairon Road T-point to Rajghat and from Chandgi Ram Akhara to Mall Road. On Thursday, the second day of trials, motorists have been advised to avoid Nizamuddin Bridge to Ring Road up to Kalkaji Mandir and SP Marg to Mother Teresa Crescent. On Friday, people have been asked to avoid Road No 56 to Road No 58A up to Yamuna Sports Complex; Kalkaji Mandir to Lal Kuan up to Surajkund Road; Vinay Marg; Ring Road from Bhairon Marg to Rajghat crossing and Chandgi Ram Akhara to Mall Road. Traffic signs and adequate police personnel are likely to be in place to guide all motorists during the trials. After September 20, as the CWG lane becomes operational, the motorists violating it will be fined Rs 2,000 and their vehicles could be impounded.advertisementlast_img read more
