76ers agree to trade Jahil Okafor, 2nd-round pick to Brooklyn

Booker, the 23rd overall pick of the 2010 draft by Washington, averaged 10.1 points with the Nets.“There is a level of toughness and versatility that interests me,” Brown said. “He’s shown that he can play, handle not play and be good people and handle himself like a pro.”Okafor gave the Sixers plenty of headaches in his rookie season out of Duke with his off-court conduct, which included his role in Boston street fight that earned him TMZ scrutiny and a two-game suspension.He was widely mocked last year for a lackadaisical defensive effort where he stood still and failed to contest shots in a game against Miami.“I think like anybody that comes into our organization, we need to defend the basketball,” Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. “I think that will be a challenge for both of them.

Accused of tanking, the Sixers went 18-64 in 2014-15 and earned the No. 3 pick. They landed a flop instead of a future star. Okafor not only dropped behind Embiid on the depth chart, but this year was demoted behind Richaun Holmes and Amir Johnson.“It’s not easy to take a guy that was drafted third in the draft, after all the pain and strife that this organization and fan base went through, to just move away,” Colangelo said.Colangelo had no ties to Okafor and there was no secret of his desire to move him. Okafor played in 105 games (81 starts) with the Sixers and averaged 14.6 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 26.2 minutes while shooting 51.0 percent from the field“I wouldn’t say there’s regrets. I’d say there’s human disappointment,” Brown said. “We went through a lot together while he was here.”The Nets also requested waivers on guard Sean Kilpatrick. Atkinson said he was ready to help the two former first-rounders find success with the rebuilding Nets.“I think they’re coming into a strong locker room,” Atkinson said.“This trade provides us with a good opportunity to bring in two young players who were high picks in recent drafts and give them a chance to succeed in our system,” Nets general manager Sean Marks said.Booker was ready for a fresh start in Philly.“It’s been real Brooklyn . Will always have nothing but love for you. Loved my time in New York!!!” Booker tweeted Thursday night. “Philly what it do ?”The Sixers played the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Nets were in Mexico City for a game against Oklahoma City later Thursday night.

Aubameyang denies Man Utd morale-boosting win

first_img0Shares0000Saka pounced on a loose pass deep inside the United half and fed Aubameyang, who had been flagged offside, before dinking the ball past De Gea.MANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Sep 30 – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s second-half strike, awarded by VAR, denied Manchester United a much-needed win to kickstart their season as Arsenal emerged from Old Trafford with a 1-1 draw on Monday.Scott McTominay’s stunning strike to give United the lead was a rare moment of quality in a poor first-half. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men could not hold out for all three points as Aubameyang’s goal just before the hour mark was allowed to stand despite the Gabon international being initially flagged offside.United have now won just two of their last 12 Premier League games dating back to last season and sit 12 points adrift of leaders Liverpool just seven games into the campaign.A point is enough to edge Arsenal back into the top four on goal difference and maintain their three-point advantage over United, who move up to 10th.For many years the clashes between these sides were the Premier League’s marquee fixtures. United and Arsenal were the champions of England for nine consecutive seasons between 1996 and 2004.However, the fact the were facing off a Monday night because neither are in Champions League action later this week was reflected in a first 45 minutes devoid of quality.It took 28 minutes for either goalkeeper to be tested as Arsenal’s Bernd Leno saved well low to his left to deny Andreas Pereira after a solo run.United have not scored more than one goal in any match since the opening day of the season and, even against an Arsenal defence that had conceded nine goals in their last four league games, looked toothless when not afforded space to counter-attack into.Arsenal, though, played right into the hosts hands in the final five minutes of the first-half.Firstly, Marcus Rashford wasted a huge chance when played in behind by Paul Pogba’s through ball with the Gunners furiously protesting for a free-kick against the Frenchman as he dispossessed Matteo Guendouzi.Arsenal then had the chance to strike on the counter-attack themselves as from a United corner the visitors burst forward through Bukayo Saka and after his effort was palmed away by David de Gea, the Spaniard got back in position to block Guendouzi’s follow-up effort.But from the resulting corner, it was United who took the lead.Daniel James led the counter from one end of the field to the other and after his cross just evaded Rashford, the England international cut the ball back to the edge of the box where McTominay smashed into the top corner.That was the first goal United had scored a goal from open play at home in the first-half this season.But they soon needed a second as Arsenal struck back after the break thanks to VAR.Saka pounced on a loose pass deep inside the United half and fed Aubameyang, who had been flagged offside, before dinking the ball past De Gea.However, replays showed he was clearly played onside by Harry Maguire and his eighth goal of the season was allowed to stand.Seconds later, Unai Emery’s men were unlucky not to be in front when Saka’s shot from Callum Chambers’s cross was deflected just over by Victor Lindelof.Attack looked like the best form of defence for Arsenal as their backline never looked comfortable at holding out for a point.Pogba fired inches wide from the edge of the area before McTominay somehow didn’t score his second of the night with a free header six yards out from a corner.Leno produced a fine save to turn a piledriver from Maguire over as the world’s most expensive defender tried to atone for his earlier error.But the German goalkeeper’s best save of the evening came at the death as he flew to his left to turn Rashford’s powerful free-kick to safety.0Shares0000(Visited 19 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Tearful plaintiff testifies of abuse

first_img Jurors sat impassively as the testimony became prolonged, few of them taking notes. Jayson said the abuse occurred after Wempe returned from therapy at a monastery in New Mexico where he had been treated for inappropriate behavior with boys without specific evidence of molestation. The archdiocese later assigned him to be the Catholic chaplain at the Jewish Cedars-Sinai hospital. The former priest calmly took notes in court as Jayson testified. His behavior was markedly different from last week when the jury heard from a series of seven men Wempe has admitted abusing. When they told their stories, the priest wept. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Wempe has admitted molesting 13 other boys in the 1970s and ’80s, including Jayson’s two brothers, but cannot be tried in those cases because the statute of limitations has expired. He has denied molesting Jayson B, however, and his lawyers say the man fabricated the charges in an effort to seek vengeance for his brothers. Jayson came forward three months after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a law allowing the statute of limitations to be extended in sex-crimes cases involving children. Wempe, 66, is the first priest from the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles to be tried on new charges after being freed by the 2003 Supreme Court ruling. As Deputy District Attorney Todd Hicks sought intimate details about the alleged assaults, Jayson covered his face and sobbed. Before every answer, he took long gulps of air and covered his eyes with his hand. “I don’t like talking about this,” he said. “I didn’t want anyone to know about this and now I’m talking about it in front of all these people.” A man who claims he was sexually abused by a priest in the 1990s cried for most of three hours on the witness stand Monday, declaring at one point, “I didn’t want anyone to know about this.” The 26-year-old witness, identified as Jayson B., described five instances of sexual abuse he said Michael Wempe subjected him to. He said they took place about a year apart, once at Wempe’s office at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and other times in parking garages in Wempe’s car. He said he didn’t tell anyone what had happened, adding that Wempe’s long-standing relationship with his family made him a figure of trust. “It was Father Mike. It was difficult to think anything he could do was wrong,” he testified during his second day on the witness stand. last_img read more

More storm clouds ahead

first_imgA storm out of the Gulf of Alaska is expected to bring Southern California two more days of intermittent rainfall, prompting the National Weather Service to warn of possible flash flooding. Some rain fell Monday morning in parts of the Southland – including the Pasadena area, Catalina island and in spots throughout the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys. It was expected to turn heavy overnight, according to the National Weather Service. The NWS issued a Flash Flood Warning for Los Angeles County valleys and mountains through Wednesday morning. The late-season storm is expected to produce 1-3 inches of rain in coastal areas and 3-5 inches in the foothills and mountains, with some areas getting as much as 7 inches, according to the National Weather Service.

It will fall to about 5,000 feet in the early hours of Wednesday, according to NWS forecasters. Winds of between 20 and 30 miles per hour are expected in mountain areas until the storm moves east. – City News Service160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgA judge has said it was wrong to grant bail to a man who has terrorised his ex-partner after being released by the courts.Former county councillor Gareth ReidFormer Donegal County Councillor Gareth Reid appeared in court yesterday as part of long-running court battle. Reid, of Lawndale, Ballybofey, has broken a barring order against his ex-partner on numerous occasions despite being warned to stay away from her.His case was adjourned to yesterday at Letterkenny District Court for a probation report.A previous sitting of the court heard how Reid warned his ex-partner he would ‘put a bullet between her eyes’ after they had a row.Judge Paul Kelly said he was gravely concerned at the content in the probation report.He said Reid was blaming others instead of taking responsibility for his actions and also has serious questions about his attitude.“I’m concerned about his behaviour and he really needs to address the concerns the court has,” said Judge Kelly.The court was told Reid currently signs on at his local Garda station three times a week but this was reduced to just one signing.Solicitor Kieran Dillon said his client had also surrendered his passport and was requesting it back so he could attend a friend’s stag party in the UK.Judge Kelly granted the application and said he could have the passport from today but must return it on July 21st.He adjourned the case until January next year.JUDGE SAYS IT WAS WRONG TO GRANT BAIL TO FORMER COUNTY COUNCILLOR was last modified: July 18th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:county councillordonegalGareth ReidJudge Paul Kellylast_img read more

Philosophies to be put to test

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Whatever the circumstances of Tracy’s and the Dodgers’ agreeing to part ways over the proverbial “philosophical differences,” however much you think the time for this had come, Monday’s development is the darkest sign yet of the franchise’s recent dysfunction. Call it a parting shot, maybe, when Tracy told reporters one of the reasons he couldn’t envision managing the final year of a contract that was to have run through 2006. “I think anything is fixable,” Tracy said of the team, tossed by changes and torn by injuries, that finished 2005 in fourth place with a 71-91 record. “Can it be done overnight? Can it be done in one season? I don’t know if the answer to that is yes.” Tracy’s agreed-to departure could be seen coming since he was given such a short and low-budget contract extension last winter. The best recent clue came last week, when DePodesta was quoted saying he faced a tough decision on whether to grant Tracy his wish for a contract extension. Hard to imagine the Dodgers then calling a news conference to slap Tracy on the back and say, “It was a tough decision. Now go get ’em next season.” So they set up a telephone conference call Monday evening so that first DePodesta and then Tracy could give their versions of events. A good manager is out. That’s Jim Tracy, who won 90 games with the Dodgers twice, who got the club its first playoff victory since the ’80s, who as of midsummer had a better lifetime record than the World Series manager down the interstate. An unproven (the polite adjective) general manager is in deeper than ever. That’s Paul DePodesta, who tore up last year’s division-winning Dodgers roster with so-far painful results. center_img On this, at least, it seems they agree: These two smart and likable men couldn’t get in step on some pretty important matters, such as which players to put in uniform and in the lineup. As Tracy said, pointedly enough, time will tell “if the philosophy in place is correct.” Did Tracy’s refusal to bend to DePodesta’s plan stand in the way of better results for the GM hired before the 2004 season? Did DePodesta’s refusal to give Tracy the players he wanted cramp the style of the manager who arrived as “Jim Who?” to replace Davey Johnson in the winter before 2001? Whatever, the immediate result is that one part of the Dodgers that was respected around the baseball world – Tracy – is gone. One part that has a lot to prove – DePodesta – now holds the future of Frank McCourt’s team entirely in his young hands. DePodesta said he didn’t fire Tracy. He said he didn’t blame Tracy for the Dodgers’ terrible season. “These differences exist whether we won 71 games or 95,” DePodesta said, going on to call Tracy “a terrific manager.” But apparently DePodesta is confident he knows better than that terrific manager. We’ll see. Tracy was immensely well-prepared, always grinding to plug imperfect players into spots where they could succeed. He made Jolbert Cabrera a contributor, made Alex Cora a local star, made Eric Gagne a closer and watched him win the Cy Young Award. He couldn’t do as much with Hee-Seop Choi as DePodesta hoped. That will be the task for the next man to sit in Tommy Lasorda’s office. Tracy has earned the chance to do it his way somewhere else, and he’s pretty certain to get it soon. DePodesta is still trying to show that his way works. I suppose the test is who wins the pennant first, Tracy’s next club or the Dodgers. Your guess?

Zeile’s movie company ready for its closeup

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “We have to show people that we aren’t doing this just on some whim,” the former Hart High and UCLA standout third baseman said the other day from his Thousand Oaks home. “It’s our intent to build a real business out of this.” By the time he ended his 15-year major-league career in 2004, which included a short stop with the Dodgers among his 11 employers, Zeile already had a pretty good idea that he’d make a segue into the entertainment field. He had been around the business for years, going back to when he was courting future wife Julianne McNamara before she was an Olympic gold-medal winning gymnast at UCLA. She had development deals with Universal, where she went on to do TV and film. Zeile developed his own deals, with friends in the most unlikely of high places. Such as Tom Sherak, who runs Revolution Studios and was an executive at Fox when that company owned the Dodgers and Zeile played for them. One of his neighborhood friends was Bill Civitella, who was in the music side of things and helped form the partnership for Green Dianmond. Even better, Zeile knew if he was to make something happen, he could rely on some reliable investors who had nice stock portfolios. Take Jason Giambi, the New York Yankees first baseman who is listed in the credits of “Dirty Deeds” as the executive producer. Mike Piazza, Al Leiter, Cliff Floyd, Tom Glavine and Robin Ventura also tossed some cash into the hat, and Kevin Millar, who played a year with Zeile at Hart High way back when, is soon coming on board. With that kind of star power, Zeile’s company created some instant buzz for an independent movie that really didn’t receive great reviews from the critics, nor did it generate much in the way of box office revenue – about $150,000 to date in limited release, although enough to pay the bills. But Zeile was able to promote it by doing TV and radio sports talk shows, to make the public aware of what was going on through word of mouth. He also used the “Dirty Deeds” New York premiere earlier this month as a fundraiser for victims of Hurricane Katrina, and has stayed in release these days in Chicago, Phoenix, Salt Lake City and Las Vegas, as well as some parts of L.A. Through this process, which involved keeping as much in-house as possible – from filming to editing to distribution and marketing – he discovered that with a limited budget and a reasonable time schedule, his company could crank out a very credible product that would serve as a calling card for future endeavors. The learning curve continues. And Hollywood producer Zeile is confident his company, which includes wife Julianne as an executive producer, can hit the curveballs that come their way. “I knew that with the baseball connection, we’d at least open some doors, but the novelty of a bunch of players involved in a movie only works once,” admits Zeile, who has been a venture capitalist in corporate aviation and real estate development before. “And we definitely took advantage of it, getting a lot of free publicity. That was part of the strategy. But the next time, there’s nothing novel about it, we’ll only be judged if the movie is good. “We’ve put ourselves out there. I think we’ve shown that we can be more than just one and out.” The next two projects for Green Diamond are very different from the first. One is a suspense drama set in 1877 Mexico that’s been written by Ben Younger, a rising star in the business who just wrote and directed “Prime” with Uma Thurman and Meryl Streep that comes out next weekend. Another potential film that could be done with Lions Gate Entertainment has the tentative title “Hello, My Name Is Jason Scott,” a quirky comedy that’s more like something the Cohen Brothers would put out. As soon as it became known that Zeile was serious about making movies, he said he started receiving script treatments from all over the place. Many were even baseball-related. Zeile would like to dip into sports movies, but he has to be extra careful about giving the green light to such a film. “We do have a couple of sports movies down the line, but it’s too early to know exactly where they’ll go,” said Zeile, who adds that he may consider ducking in as a bit actor if the role is fun enough, as it was playing the homeless man Mullet in “Dirty Deeds.” “We have one with baseball as a backstory that could work. But we all know sports movies are really hit and miss. I probably got about 50 scripts about baseball movies already. I know a lot of them were good stories, but with me, they have to be authentic and credible.” Just as when he played, Zeile can sit back and wait for the right pitch.

If he’s going to end up as a movie mogul, Todd Zeile would rather be the real deal instead of some wanna-be de Mille. The process starts with planting his production company’s offices, Green Diamond Entertainment, in the heart of Hollywood, on Sunset and Fairfax. center_img It involves doing lunches and making connections so that his first film, the teen comedy called “Dirty Deeds,” makes it into the right markets and then onto video and DVD by early next year. Then there’s the process of restoring some of the scenes that had to be deleted to get it from a “soft R-rating” to a PG-13 so that the target audience of kids 12-to-17 could actually view it in the theatres. It’s also being able to look ahead to optioning the right scripts, networking with the best distributors for domestic and overseas releases, structuring budgets, and becoming the can-do person by putting the right people in the right places. last_img read more

Inspirational Nikki and team conquer the 4 Peak Challenge

first_imgDonegal woman, cancer survivor and adaptive adventurer Nikki Bradley has set a new record this weekend as the first crutch user to complete the 4 Peak Challenge.The 32-year-old and her team have successfully climbed 4 of Ireland’s most iconic mountains in 24 hours, driving around the country through night and day on a whirlwind adventure for three charities – The Irish Cancer Society, Action Cancer and The Ross Nugent Foundation.The four climbers were greeted by friends and family for an emotional celebration at the foot of Errigal on Sunday afternoon. Now that it is all done, Nikki admits that she still hasn’t fully grasped the events of the weekend.“I’m still feeling the adrenaline from it all,” Nikki told Donegal Woman.“I’m so proud of the team, more than anything I did myself, this really was a team effort. The guys literally had to climb all the mountains with me, drive, navigate and support me when I needed them.”4 Peak Challenge. Photo by Iain MillerThe 4 Peaks team was comprised of Irish Army soldier Billy Fanneran, Mountaineer Iain Miller and Nikki’s boyfriend Ian Parke, who Nikki says, ‘has a level of natural fitness I don’t think I’ve ever seen before’. The weekend was full of literal and emotional highs and lows for the team. Setting out at 6am from Kerry, they scaled Carrauntoohil before heading to Croagh Patrick in Co. Mayo, then on to Slieve Donard to climb through the night until their final summit on Errigal.4 Peak Challenge. Photo by Iain Miller“Coming down Slieve Donard was a low point for me,” said Nikki, “My hip had started getting quite sore, simply because of how loose it is and the severity of the nerve damage.”“It loosened on the way down Croagh Patrick and again on Slieve Donard. That made the descent feel very long and painful for me.”The 4 Peaks team set out for Slieve Donard at 3am on Sunday morning, leaving their van in complete darkness.Nikki said: “At this time all you want to do is sleep, but you just have to put on your head torch and head into the forest. “One of the best moments was on Slieve Donard too. The view on the way up was absolutely incredible. You are above the clouds and it is an incredible sight.”4 Peak Challenge. Photo by Iain MillerBy the time they reached Donegal, the exhaustion and emotions were having an impact, but a support team at the foot of the mountain gave Nikki a great boost.Crowds who had gathered for the Seven Sisters Mountain Trail Marathon gave a round of applause to the team and formed a guard of honour for their final ascent.“Coming back down the mountain I saw my family and friends with banners and I felt a mixture of pride, completely raw emotion… and a little bit of embarrassment!” 4 Peak Challenge. Photo by Iain MillerRepresentatives from the Ross Nugent Foundation and the Irish Cancer Society came out to show their support at the final peak.“We had some amazing acts of kindness along the way which helped us so much. I knew the people of Ireland were good, but I didn’t know just how good they are when you need them most,” Nikki said.Nikki’s boyfriend Ian presented her with a bespoke plaque using stone from the four mountains to remember the challenge forever.“It was the most touching gesture. Ian was with me through the dark times, the training and the whole journey. What more could you want in a partner,” Nikki said.4 Peak Challenge. Photo by Iain MillerThe challenge is another triumph for Nikki as she affirms her message of the importance of exercise for rehabilitation. Through her campaign ‘Fighting Fit for Ewing’s’, Nikki sets tough challenges for herself as a way of inspiring others.Nikki’s unstoppable nature is not going to slow down just yet. She might not have the desire to tackle any more mountains for a while, but she will continue fundraising and work with others on charity events to increase the total.“For now I’m going to enjoy being on the ground – flat ground!”If you would like to donate to the 4 Peaks Challenge, visit: Peak Challenge.
