Rocket GM Daryl Morey dismisses reported James Harden-Chris Paul tension “Hopefully I’ll get a max contract anywhere I choose to go,” Butler told reporters about his free agency last month (via NBC Sports Philadelphia). “You always want to be able to win, I think that’s key for sure. You’re looking at coaches, you’re looking at the city. There’s a lot that goes into it.”The Rockets finished 2018-19 with a 53-29 record but fell to the Warriors in six games in the Western Conference semifinals. Golden State has eliminated Houston from the playoffs in two straight seasons.Houston is “actively exploring the trade market for Clint Capela, Eric Gordon and PJ Tucker” and is “operating under the belief that at least one of those three” players will not be on the team next season, according to an earlier report from the New York Times.Rockets guard Chris Paul has asked Houston to move him because his relationship with star James Harden is “unsalvageable,” according to Yahoo Sports. However, Paul and Rockets general manager Daryl Morey both forcefully denied that report shortly after it was published Tuesday.

The team believes he is an “ideal fit on both ends of court” and can help push it “to the top of the wide-open West,” the report says. NBA trade rumors: Celtics have ‘checked in’ with Rockets about potential deal for Clint Capela “I’ve talked to Chris since (the end of the playoffs), for sure,” Morey told the Chronicle. “Myself, (coach) Mike D’Antoni, James Harden are all super competitive, all frustrated we were eliminated from the playoffs, all want to get over the hump. That leads to a lot of competitive fire. All of it is normal. We’re all in the same boat, pursuing the championship. We’re all frustrated we’re not there. But there is nothing past that.“I’m very frustrated right now. We’re literally trying to do real work on making the team better and every day I have to learn about a new media rock that has been turned over.”The Celtics have reportedly “checked in” with the Rockets about a potential deal for Capela.

West London fighters Ryan Toms and Steve O’Meara clash tonight knowing a victory could secure a crack at the British light-middleweight title.They meet at Bethnal Green’s York Hall, where Toms defends his southern-area title – and his unbeaten professional record – against the slick O’Meara, who is likely to try to outbox the hard-hitting Northolt southpaw.Toms improved his record to 9-0 with an impressive fourth-round stoppage of Pat McAleese last time out, while former Prizefighter contestant O’Meara, 27, has won 13 of his 15 bouts.Toms is unbeaten in nine fightsBoth men were comfortably inside the 11-stone light-middleweight limit at yesterday’s weigh-in at Planet Hollywood in Piccadilly.They believe a win will pave the way for a fight with British champion Prince Arron, but a confident O’Meara declared. “There’s a lot at stake, not just because of that, but in terms of local pride as well.“We’re both from the west London area and know many of the same people. I don’t want to let down those who are backing me.O’Meara has sparred with American superstar Floyd Mayweather“I’ve sold lots of tickets for this and with the support he’ll have too, this might not be the main event but it will be the main event in terms of support and atmosphere.”The fight is the chief support to the Commonwealth super-featherweight clash between Liam Walsh and Paul Appleby.It also represents a step up in class for Toms, who acknowledges O’Meara’s boxing skills but is convinced he can extend his winning run.“O’Meara is a good technician. I’ll be looking to hit him with some good shots and break him down,” said the 29-year-old.“I’m improving all the time and showed that in the fight against McAleese. This is another test for me and I’m feeling really confident.”For updates from York Hall follow us on Twitter.

Fulfilling its mission to serve people in need — wherever they may live — The Bayat Foundation, Afghanistan’s leading health and social development organization, completed a three-day hearing care mission April 18-20 in the Dominican Republic in support and sponsor of the Starkey Hearing Foundation.A young girl in the Dominican Republic celebrates hearing for the first time with Bayat Foundation Chairman Ehsan BayatThe senior leadership of the Bayat Foundation volunteered to give the gift of hearing to people in need. Dr. Ehsanollah Bayat, Chairman, and Ms. Leah Bayat of the Bayat Foundation joined the Starkey Hearing Foundation’s hearing health specialists and mission team to provide hearing health care to more than 1,200 people living in the cities of Santo Domingo and Santiago de los Caballeros.Joining the Bayat and Starkey Hearing Foundation service teams was world champion boxer Evander Holyfield who inspired the patients to achieve their potential.Following the Santo Domingo hearing mission, the mission team traveled to Santiago de los Caballeros, the capital of Santiago Province. There, from April 19-20, the mission team established a Hearing Health Care Center at the Pontificia Universidad Católica Madre y Maestra, and provided hearing devices for more than 350 people living in Santiago de los Caballeros and the surrounding area.The ages of the patients ranged from one year of age to 115 years old. A survey of the patients in Santo Domingo and Santiago de los Caballeros, indicated that 35 percent didn’t know the cause of their hearing loss and about 24 percent of the patients had experienced hearing loss at birth.In each location, the hearing mission team — supported by scores of local volunteers, utilized a meticulous intake process, which prepared each patient to receive the most appropriate and effective type of hearing care. The intake process included recording the name, residence and vital statistics of each patient, conducting an examination cleaning of the ears and auditory system. Then each patient was fit with a set of ear molds — clear, wear-resistant plastic discs used to house the hearing aids provided without cost to each patient.After completing intake, volunteers escorted each patient into the treatment area, where the Bayat and Starkey hearing care teams, together with specially trained volunteers fit each patient with the hearing devices that empowered each patient — many for the first time in their lives — to use the precious, powerful gift of hearing, sound and their voices to connect with their families, their communities and the world.In the Dominican Republic, Starkey Hearing Foundation, working with its strategic partners, has held eight hearing missions, distributing more than 37,000 hearing devices so that individuals of every age can receive the gift of hearing and the power of caring.“Our service in the Dominican Republic — helping people escape a life of silence and hear again — was amazing and transformative for recipients and volunteers alike” said Leah Bayat, a mission volunteer. “In three days, we were able to help nearly 1,300 hear — many for the first time in their lives. This work with the Starkey Hearing Foundation is a powerful example of how we, as individuals, can be the change we want to see, and hear, in the world.”“More than 360 million throughout the world are affected by deafness or some sort of hearing loss,” said Dr. Ehsanollah Bayat, the Chairman and Co-Founder of the Bayat Foundation. “In Afghanistan, our two organizations work side by side to provide hearing to thousands of Afghans, so we are honored to help the Starkey Hearing Foundation continue this vital work, in the Dominican Republic, in Afghanistan, and all over the world.”
TORONTO – UPS Canada is launching a new cargo bike delivery pilot project in Toronto this week as part of a broader green initiative.The shipping company says the pilot will run for six to eight months using a custom-made cargo bike to deliver packages in and around the York University area in the north part of the city.UPS says outcomes from the pilot will determine the company’s strategy for cargo delivery by bicycle on a larger scale in Toronto and potentially other cities across Ontario and Canada.The company says the initiative is part of a broader UPS ambition to bring sustainable practices and services to the communities they serve.In the longer term, UPS says it wants to test and potentially deploy electric motorized bicycles to boost the efficiency of this delivery mode.UPS says the success of its bike delivery pilot program was first demonstrated in 2012 in collaboration with Hamburg, Germany.
