Sports fans, hello and welcome.
The week is almost over but the gravy train of breaking news and information never really grinds to a halt.
Today we’ve got plenty of interesting topics to mull over. Read on below for more and watch the video above if you’re just downright lazy.
Thompson's lucrative deal
The wait is over - Tristan Thompson and the Cleveland Cavaliers have finally agreed on a five-year contract worth $82million.
Agent Rich Paul has apparently told ESPN that Thompson is set to become the sixth highest paid power forward in the NBA, earning around $16.4m annually.
Money aside it’s great news for Cavs fans as they’ve seen a stalemate that had lasted since July and forced Thompson to miss training camp and preseason.
Thompson might have less money than he wanted, but he can’t complain at the deal on the table.
Many people, however, were not happy:
Sefolosha suing NYPD
In other NBA news, Atlanta Hawks guard Thabo Sefolosha is suing eight NYPD officers and New York City for $50million in damages after suffering a broken leg following a nightclub incident back in April.
Sefolosha has since returned to action but is claiming that he’s still not entirely healthy. He was reprimanded by law enforcement officers and charged with obstructing governmental administration, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. He was found not guilty on all charges.
Harvin's possible retirement
Across to NFL, and Percy Harvin of the Buffalo Bills is contemplating retirement as he battles a recurring hip problem along with a knee injury.
Harvin didn’t travel with the rest of his team to London to play the Jacksonville Jaguars in game week 7, and - to quote Fox Sports - is not feeling football right now.
In any case, it will be some time yet before anyone sees him back on a football field.
Lastly, another possible retirement case has Dennis Pitta admitting that he might be done with the game if he can’t play for the Baltimore Ravens in 2015.
The tight end revealed that this calendar year might well be his last unless he can hit a crucial target in the coming months. The 30-year-old is still working to come back from a second fractured hip in two years.
