Brett Brown: Ben Simmons, Markelle Fultz adding range
09/18/2018 9:46pm

PHILADELPHIA -- Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz are expected this season to join the  76ers' "Big Three." No, not as franchise cornerstones -- the No. 1 draft picks were already part of that trio with All-Star center Joel Embiid. But as long-distance shooters, Simmons and Fultz went 0-for-the season on 3s; Simmons, the NBA rookie of the year, missed all 11 attempts, and Fultz went 0-for-1. Sixers coach Brett Brown said Tuesday that both players have put in the work needed on their jumpers, though neither player will ever become defined by his work beyond the arc. Brown said Fultz took about 150,000 shots this summer under the tutelage of trainer Drew Hanlen. Simmons has worked with his brother, Liam, a former college basketball assistant coach, at 3s and shooting from the elbow. Simmons attempted just one 3 in the postseason, and he'll have to establish some sort of long-range jumper to become a serious all-around...

Won and done? Sportsbooks banning the smart money
09/18/2018 9:46pm

Already a hot-button issue in the United Kingdom, a controversial bookmaking practice is starting to spread in the U.S.'s growing legal sports betting market, too. Bookmakers from London to Las Vegas are refusing to take bets from a growing number of customers whose only offense might be trying to win. The full scope of the issue in the U.K. is difficult to determine, but it's believed only a small fraction of the roughly 8.5 million "punters" (the European term for bettors) are impacted. Gaming experts say sportsbooks might have closed as many as 50,000 betting accounts in recent years, and just as many punters have had their betting limits restricted to mere pittance. As one U.K. bettor put it, "If you try to win, they don't let you play anymore." "Yes, bookmakers are severely restricting or closing accounts for what appears to be the fact that these people are winning," said U.K. gambling consultant Steve...

Lane Kiffin lets suspended Saints RB Mark Ingram work out at FAU
09/18/2018 3:46pm

Lane Kiffin is holding firm to his "Alabama roots." Former Alabama Heisman Trophy running back Mark Ingram worked out at Florida Atlantic on Tuesday with Kiffin and other members of the FAU coaching staff as Ingram prepares to return to the New Orleans Saints in a couple of weeks following his four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. During Ingram's suspension, he's not allowed to visit the Saints' practice facilities. "He wasn't allowed to practice with our team because of the new NCAA rules against that, but when we were done, we padded him up and put him through a workout, me and [FAU running backs coach] Kevin Smith," Kiffin told ESPN. "He got after it and wants to make sure he's ready to go and in football shape when he gets back with the Saints. "It's the least I could do. We're both part of the Alabama family." Ingram became the first Alabama player to win the Heisman Trophy in 2009 when he...
