Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr is reportedly finalizing a lucrative contract extension. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski says the two sides are nearing a deal that will make Kerr one Jarran Reed Jersey of the NBA’s highest-paid coaches.

Kerr is entering the final season of the five-year, $25 million deal that he signed in May of 2014. He’s led the Warriors to The Finals every season during his tenure, delivering three out of four championships.

Sale pitched his latest Bronx gem, Rafael Devers went 5 for 5 with a first-inning grand slam and Boston held New York to two hits during an 11-0 rout Saturday night to take back baseball’s best record.

Sale (8-4) allowed only Giancarlo Stanton’s clean single over seven innings, striking out 11. He has a 1.73 career ERA against the Yankees, best among pitchers with at least 10 starts against them since 1920. His ERA at Yankee Stadium is 1.86, second only to Seattle’s Felix Hernandez among pitchers with five starts.

The saga reached its apex last week as multiple outlets reported that Leonard had indicated to the Spurs that he prefers to be traded rather than continue playing for the team that traded for him during the 2011 Draft and hoped to build around him in the wake of Tim Duncan’s retirement in 2016.

Leonard, a two-time All-Star and two-time Kia Defensive Player of the Year, averaged 16.2 points in those nine appearances as the Spurs failed to win 50 or more games for the first time since the abbreviated 1998-99 season. It was a disappointing follow-up to his career season in 2016-17, in which he averaged 25.5 points to establish himself as arguably the best two-way player in the NBA.

Leonard is under contract for two more seasons but can exercise a player Jarran Reed Youth Jersey option to become an unrestricted free agent next summer.

We feed off that, just the energy that he provides, Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge said. He pounds the strike zone and he just dominates. He doesn’t miss a spot.

Across seven innings in a high-stakes game in one of the biggest series to this point of the season, Sabathia held the Red Sox in check. He gave up six hits and only one run in a five-strikeout outing.
