NEW YORK---LeBron James and Carmelo
Anthony top the list of NBA stars who
officially became free agents yesterday.
Players and teams began negotiating new
deals starting early yesterday morning,
though contracts can t be signed until July
10, after next season s salary cap has been
set.James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh,
who joined together in Miami in 2010 and
have led the Heat to two championships
and four straight NBA finals, all became
Though many expect that trio to stay
with the Heat, Anthony could be persuaded
to leave the New York Knicks for a team he
believes gives him a better chance to compete
for a championship. He was to visit Chicago
yesterday, and Houston and Dallas also could
try to pry the 2012--13 scoring champion
away from the Knicks, who can pay him
around $30 million more than any team
under NBA rules.
Long-time stars Paul Pierce, Dirk Nowitzki
and Pau Gasol also are free agents, along
with players such as Toronto s Kyle Lowry
and Indiana s Lance Stephenson, who are
coming off their best seasons in the league.
It s the most anticipated free agency class
since 2010, when James led a group that
included Wade, Bosh, and other All-Stars
such as Amare Stoudemire and Joe John-
That free agency period changed the NBA.
This one might mostly change the Heat.
They are in need of an upgrade after get-
ting smashed by San Antonio in this year s
NBA finals, and the Big Three could give
them the means to make one if they agree
Free agency opens in the NBA
to lower salaries.
Knicks president Phil Jackson hopes Anthony also
agrees to take less than a maximum salary, which
would be more than $125 million if he agrees to stay
in New York.
The Brooklyn Nets, meanwhile, are staggering into
free agency without their coach after letting Jason
Kidd leave for the Milwaukee Bucks. The teams agreed
to a deal Monday, with the Bucks sending two future
second-round draft picks to the Nets, who allowed
Kidd to pursue other jobs after denying his request
for more power in the organisation.
Brooklyn has Pierce and Shaun Livingston among
its key players who are free agents.
The Los Angeles Lakers have plenty of money to
offer, along with the chance to play with Kobe Bryant.
Teams such as Phoenix and Atlanta also have some
good players and enough cap space to add anoth-
er.They would love a shot at James, as would his
home-state Cleveland Cavaliers, the team he left in
2010. But it s unclear how seriously the four-time
Most Valuable Player will listen to other teams after
meeting with six suitors when he was last a free
The Cavaliers may not get James back, but they
will have their current All-Star for a while. Owner
Dan Gilbert wrote on Twitter early yesterday morning
that he had an agreement on a five-year contract
extension with Kyrie Irving, the No. 1 pick in the
2011 NBA draft. (AP)
PARIS---Tour de France defending champion Chris
Froome is feeling the pressure ahead of Saturday s
start to the 2014 race.
This 101st Tour might seem to favour Team Sky
and Froome, but he will have a lot on his mind during
the three-week race which starts in Leeds, in the
northern English county of Yorkshire.
The Kenyan-born Brit is dealing with a perception
among some fans that he had a hand in Sky s decision
to bench his popular compatriot and team-mate Sir
Bradley Wiggins, who won the 2012 Tour.
He also was caught up in a recent doping firestorm.
Froome, who insists he has never used banned drugs,
said in an interview that he cried privately over scrutiny
of his use of a medication for a chest infection during
a recent race, even though it was permitted because
he had a doctor s note.
That incident showed the sport is still hounded by
doping suspicions after a succession of scandals over
the past generation---highlighted by the drug use and
cheating by Lance Armstrong and others in his era.
Froome also faces the little matter of two-time
Tour champ Alberto Contador, who last won in 2009.
The 31-year-old Spaniard has been in strong form
and has made winning this Tour a top priority.
Cycling s doping shadows will also be cast upon
Contador, who lost his 2010 title in a doping case.
His Tinkoff-Saxo team-mate Roman Kreuziger, who
finished fifth last year, was dropped by the team
because of anomalies in his biological passport in
2011 and 2012, when the Czech rider was with the
Kazakh team Astana. Kreuziger has denied any wrong-
On the way to winning the Tour de Romandie in
Switzerland in early May, Froome benefited from a
"therapeutic use exemption"---a doctor s note---allow-
ing him to use corticosteroid prednisolone against a
chest infection. The UCI, cycling s governing body,
and the World Anti-Doping Agency agreed that Froome
had followed the rules. But critics alleged he hadn t,
and the UCI said last week that it s reviewing its TUE
looms for 101st
