Brett Brown: Ben Simmons, Markelle Fultz adding range
09/18/2018 8:06pm

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...

FanDuel not honoring bet that would have paid more than $82,000 due to line error
09/18/2018 6:46pm

For one New Jersey bettor, the Denver Broncos were a long shot too good to be true. New Jersey bookmaker FanDuel declined to honor a $110 bet on the Broncos on Sunday that would have paid more than $82,000, due to an error in the oddsmaking process, the company said. "The wager in question involved an obvious pricing error inadvertently generated by our in-game pricing system," a FanDuel spokesperson said in a statement. The bettor, who identified himself to News 12 New Jersey as Anthony Prince, placed the wager over the counter at the sportsbook at the Meadowlands Racetrack with Denver trailing the Oakland Raiders 19-17 late in the fourth quarter. After quarterback Case Keenum completed a pass down to the Oakland 18-yard line, putting the Broncos in comfortable field goal range, FanDuel attempted to update the live betting odds to reflect Denver as a -600 favorite. However, according to the company, an error in the live-odds feed caused the...

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...
