    NBA – Pistons extending Casey through 2023-24 season

    The Detroit Pistons have agreed to a contract extension with coach Dwane Casey through the 2023-24 season. Casey is wrapping up his third season with the rebuilding Pistons, who at 20-50 have the second-worst record in the NBA. Detroit is at the bottom of the Eastern Conference, but the Pistons do have some young players who have shown promise, such as rookies Saddiq Bey and Isaiah Stewart. Detroit has completely overhauled its roster since the start of 2020, parting ways with Blake Griffin, Andre Drummond and several other players who received significant playing time.

    NBA – Documents: Firefighters could be fired for Bryant photos

    Court documents say two Los Angeles County firefighters could be fired and a third suspended after first responders took and shared graphic photos from the site of the helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant, his teenage daughter and seven others. The documents were filed Monday as part of widow Vanessa Bryant’s federal lawsuit against Los Angeles County that alleges invasion of privacy. Kobe Bryant and the others were killed Jan. 26, 2020, when the helicopter they were aboard crashed. Vanessa Bryant’s attorneys allege two firefighters had taken photos of the bodies that “served no business necessity." They sent them to a third firefighter, who showed them to others.

    NHL – NHL's Canadian teams likely to keep COVID-19 protocols

    The NHL eased some of its COVID-19 health and safety protocols over the weekend for clubs that have been fully vaccinated. But because of the decidedly slower rollout of vaccines in Canada, franchises there won’t be enjoying the same freedoms as some of their U.S.-based counterparts anytime soon as the Stanley Cup playoffs loom. The changes include loosened restrictions on indoor and outdoor dining, testing frequency, mask wearing and quarantine requirements. Only teams that have had a second dose will be deemed fully vaccinated in the eyes of the NHL.
