AP source: Kyrie Irving going to the Dallas Mavericks

DALLAS (AP) — All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving is being traded by the Brooklyn Nets. The team has struck a deal with the Dallas Mavericks. That’s according to a person with knowledge of the situation who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither team had announced the move. The Mavericks will trade Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith and a package of draft picks to the Nets. The blockbuster trade ends Irving’s pairing with Kevin Durant before it ever had much of a chance to click. Dallas also gets Markieff Morris in the deal.

Shiffrin’s Beijing lesson helps after another big-race DNF

MERIBEL, France (AP) — American skier Mikaela Shiffrin failed to finish the slalom portion of the women’s combined event on the opening day of the world championships. Shiffrin straddled the third-to-last gate while appearing to be close to beating first-run leader Federica Brignone. The American was trailing Brignone by 0.96 seconds after the super-G portion but had made up 0.88 of that difference before skiing out. Shiffrin reacted with apparent open-mouthed astonishment before bending over her ski poles. She then went over to Brignone and embraced the Italian skier. Shiffrin is competing in her first major event since failing to win a medal in six starts at last year’s Beijing Olympics.

Coaching carousel spins perfectly for Bruins, Stars, Knights

The NHL coaching carousel last summer involved the Boston Bruins firing coach Bruce Cassidy and the Vegas Golden Knights doing the same to Peter DeBoer. Cassidy replaced DeBoer in Vegas and DeBoer went to the Dallas Stars. Jim Montgomery had been fired by the Stars three seasons ago for inappropriate conduct but had gotten back into the NHL as an assistant in St. Louis. Montgomery then replaced Cassidy in Boston. All three teams led their respective divisions at the All-Star break and are on track to make the playoffs. It’s a rare glimpse at the game of musical coaches bouncing around working out in all three spots.
