Contract Talks Between Ty Lue & Lakers Fall Apart, Will Not Be Next Head Coach

Negotiations Between Ty Lue & Lakers Have Ended Without A Deal

Ty Lue who was LeBron James top choice to take over the vacant head coaching job of the Los Angeles Lakers will not be sitting courtside when next season tips off. According to reports, negotiations between the former Cavaliers head coach and the Lakers fell through.

League sources told ESPN contract negotiations between the Lakers and Lue ended with the parties not reaching an agreement at all.


Lue and his representatives turned down the Lakers’ offer Tuesday, league sources said. The Lakers, then on Wednesday offered Lue a deal in the range of three years and $ 18 million, after which Lue’s side pulled out of negotiations.

According to the sources, Lue’s camp was seeking a five-year deal with a salary commensurate with a championship résumé.

Beyond an inability to agree on contractual terms, the Lakers had proposed several scenarios involving their preferred candidates for assistant coaches, including Jason Kidd, sources said.

Looks like Laker fans will have to wait a little bit longer for the return of the Showtime era. The dysfunction is on ten in the Los Angeles Lakers organization. On top of not being able to secure the deal with Ty Lue, Stephen A. Smith is reporting that people close to Lakers’ president Jeanie Buss are telling her to trade LeBron James.

With Lue out of the picture, ESPN reports the former Orlando Magic coach Frank Vogel and Juwan Howard are currently being considered for the head coaching position. We shall see how this plays out, but this is definitely not what LeBron James signed up for when he joined the Los Angeles Lakers.

Willow Signs a Modeling Contract, and Already Has a Cover Star–Worthy Instagram

Willow smith

Earlier today, Willow Smith joined The Society, the modeling agency that represents runway stars such as Kendall Jenner. And it should come as no surprise: The singing, dancing, acting 14-year-old has an extraordinary sense of style, too. Like her older brother, Jaden, Willow shows impressive range in her fashion repertoire and can pull off forward-thinking streetwear looks by cult labels like MSFTSrep, as easily as she can throw back festival attire (think oversize tie-dye tees and giant Baja ponchos). Her accessory of choice? The sock, which she often pairs soccer-style, with high-waisted shorts and a Madonna tee.

Smith’s most heavenly fashion moment to date, though, was surely at the MTV VMAs, where she wore an orange NASA jumpsuit on the red carpet—an ensemble she made look surprisingly down to earth. Now that’s a stellar launch pad for a modeling career, if ever there was one.

San Francisco 49ers Shred Aldon Smith’s Contract After Latest Arrest

Well, that was fast.

The San Francisco 49ers have apparently had enough of Aldon Smith and his antics and don’t care how many sacks he gets a season. The organization just handed him his walking papers following his latest arrest.

Reports the Associated Press:

Aldon Smith received second chance after second chance with the San Francisco 49ers, who parted ways with their troubled linebacker Friday following his fifth run-in with the law.
Only a few days earlier, general manager Trent Baalke expressed his desire to keep Smith beyond this season, which would have been a contract year. Instead Friday, Baalke and coach Jim Tomsula met with Smith at team headquarters after he left jail to inform him he was no longer part of the team.

“It’s a sad day,” Tomsula said during an emotional news conference. “This is a day that doesn’t have anything to do about football.”

Smith was arrested Thursday night — on a day off from training camp for players — the fifth legal run-in since the team drafted him in 2011. Tomsula spoke to a couple of players but planned a team meeting Friday afternoon.

“Guys care about him, we care about that guy, deeply,” he said.

Smith had said when camp began he was healthy and in great shape, “ready to go.”

Santa Clara police arrested Smith, and accused him of drunken driving, hit and run and vandalism.

Police said Friday that at 8:46 p.m., Smith collided with a parked vehicle while parking his car, then caused further damage to the parked vehicle with his car door.

Authorities said Smith then left the scene without reporting the collision or leaving any identifying information. He later returned to the parking area where he was contacted by officers. Smith displayed “objective symptoms of being under the influence of an alcoholic beverage. Officers administered a field sobriety test to Smith” and was arrested.

“Although he won’t be playing football for the San Francisco 49ers, he will be supported and helped, and he will not have to walk this path alone,” Tomsula said. “That comes from our ownership down. He will not have to walk this path alone. We’re not worried about football. It has nothing to do with football.”

On a related note, HBO’s Ballers is pretty damn good, eh?

Of Course, Ciara Is The Center Of The Russell Wilson Contract Extension Story

Can the men of Ciara’s life ever get a moment for themselves? First Cici took some heat for the release of Future’s No. 1 album, Dirty Sprite 2 and now she is being slandered following news of a $ 87 million Russell Wilson contract extenstion with the Seattle Seahawks.

Did we mention $ 60 million is guaranteed?


Wilson’s new deal is just the latest, and given the position he plays, arguably the most important, contract extension handed out by the Seahawks in recent years. When Pete Carroll and John Schneider took over in 2010, they went about building through the draft what would eventually become a championship team. And after loading a roster with talented young players, the next phase became identifying and keeping as much of the core intact as the league’s salary cap would allow.

Wilson, who is now locked up through 2019, has already accomplished an extraordinary amount in his first three seasons in Seattle. Not only did he become the first quarterback to start two Super Bowls in his first three seasons, he is also the winningest quarterback through three seasons with 36 regular-season victories and 42 including the postseason.

Naturally he was happy.

And naturally she was happy for him.

But the cynics couldn’t keep from shining over the news and what we got is plenty of comical memes and what not. Even from Wilson’s peers.


Check out some reactions to the Russell Wilson contract extenstion in the gallery below.

Balenciaga, Alexander Wang in Contract Talks

PARIS — Could Balenciaga be facing a change in creative leadership?
Speculation is mounting in Paris that the fashion house, controlled by Kering, could part ways with Alexander Wang, hired in December 2012 as the successor to Nicolas Ghesquière, who exited after a stellar 15-year tenure and subsequently joined Louis Vuitton.
It is understood Wang is still under contract and preparing the next Balenciaga collection for Paris Fashion Week, scheduled for Sept. 29 to Oct. 7.
Spokeswomen for Kering and Wang would only say there are discussions between the designer and Balenciaga regarding the renewal of the contract.
The likelihood of an agreement could not immediately be learned.
As recently as last March, ahead of a fashion show attended by Lady Gaga, Balenciaga touted accelerating double-digit growth, with Wang telling WWD: “I feel we’re already a globally recognized house, and a top luxury leader. We’re well on our way.”
Wang and Balenciaga chief executive officer Isabelle Guichot had described a host of development plans for the company, citing men’s wear and knitwear among chief growth opportunities.
At the time, Guichot said the double-digit gains last year were fueled by “almost all categories, from retail and a very healthy wholesale business.” Balenciaga counts about 500 wholesale doors in
