On Friday the Paris Wildcats lost to East Bernard, 25-14, in the opening round of state 7on7 football tournament in College Station. Two-a-days are just over a month away for high school athletes.
The Dallas Stars announced they signed goalie Anton Khudobin to a two-year contract on Sunday. Khudobin, 32, spent the 2017-18 season with the Boston Bruins and posted a 16-6-7 record in 31 appearances.
NBA free agency kicked off with a bang over the weekend. The Dallas Mavericks agreed to a one year, 24 million dollar contract with Center DeAndre Jordan. This comes three years after he agreed to sign with Dallas, only to change his mind last minute and resign with the Clippers.
And after winning the first two games of their series with the Chicago White Sox, the Texas Rangers fell to the White Sox Sunday 10-5. Cole Hammels took the loss and is now 4-7 on the season.

LaBron James has made his decision to leave Cleveland and he is heading to Holloywood. James has agreed to a 4year 154 million dollar deal with the LA Lakers. With the addition of LeBron James, the Lakers are suddenly top-tier contenders to win next season’s NBA championship, according to Las Vegas sportsbooks. After news broke Sunday evening that James is headed to Los Angeles, the Westgate SuperBook reopened the Lakers at 9-2 to win next year’s title.
Chris Paul has reached agreement on a four-year, $160 million maximum contract to stay with the Houston Rockets. For Paul, 33, and the Rockets, this deal sets them together on a path to try to unseat the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference. Paul never considered leaving the Rockets in free agency, league sources said.
Center DeAndre Jordan has agreed to sign a one-year deal with the Dallas Mavericks worth close to the $24.1 million player option he declined to exercise with the LA Clippers. Jordan, perhaps in a playful nod to the wild day when he backed out of his verbal commitment to sign with Dallas in 2015, seemingly confirmed this commitment to the Mavs by tweeting an emoji of a smiley face with a cowboy hat.
Paul George has agreed to a four-year, $137 million max contract to stay with the Oklahoma City Thunder. The deal includes a player option on the fourth year, the sources said. Without taking any free-agency meetings, George made the announcement that he is staying with the Thunder at a house party in Oklahoma City hosted by Russell Westbrook, sources at the party confirmed.
Andy Murray on Sunday announced on his Facebook page that he was withdrawing from Wimbledon due to a hip injury. Jason Jung will take Murray’s place in the draw and faces France’s Benoit Paire on Tuesday. Given Murray’s lack of competition over the past year, his participation at the All England Club was in some doubt. Murray’s hip problems were an issue heading into last year’s Wimbledon tournament, and he tried numerous times to return to the court after being ousted as the top seed in a five-set quarterfinal against American Sam Querrey.
Like two boxers in the final round of a closely-contested slugfest, Kyle Busch and Kyle Larson traded hard shots on the last lap of Sunday’s Overton’s 400 at Chicagoland Speedway. Moments later, it was Kyle Busch who was still standing — with his car parked on the finish line and his fifth Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victory of the season in his pocket.
