UNDATED (AP) -- The defending NBA champ San Antonio Spurs haves signed point guard Tony Parker to a multi-year contract extension. The Spurs did not disclose the deal, but Yahoo! Sports first reported that it was a three-year extension worth $43.3 million starting in 2015.

Parker averaged 16.7 points and 5.7 assists in 29 minutes per game last season to help the Spurs to the franchise's fifth NBA title.

The 32-year old Parker is among the elite point guards in the league and has spent all 13 seasons of his career in San Antonio. He was due to make $12.5 million next season in the final year of his existing contract.


CANTON, Ohio (AP) -- NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (guh-DEHL') has defended the league against criticism that it was too lenient in suspending Ray Rice two games for his domestic violence incident.

Goodell maintains that the two-game suspension the Ravens running back got is consistent with other disciplines the league has handed out.

Goodell stresses that the Baltimore running back has assumed responsibility for his conduct, has no history of assault.

Rice allegedly struck then-fiancee Janay Palmer, now his wife, on Feb. 15 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.


UNDATED (AP) -- A day after the flurry of high-profile trade deadline deals, major league baseball gets back to a sense of normalcy with a 15-game schedule, all under the lights.

The highlight is a showdown between NL Central leader Milwaukee and the second-place Cardinals in St. Louis. The Cards send out Adam Wainwright, who will be trying to become the first 14-game winner in the majors. He takes a 1.92 ERA into the start. The Brewers look to staff ace Wily Peralta (WIH'-lee peh-RAHL'-tah) to help protect their two-game lead. He takes a 12-6 mark into the series opener.

Chris Sale tries to ride his July success into August when he gets the starting assignment for the White Sox at home against Minnesota tonight. Sale blew through July giving up just three earned runs to lower his major league-leading ERA to 1.88. He's 10-1.

The NL West-leading Dodgers take a six-game winning streak into the start of their home series against the Cubs tonight. Dan Haren takes the mound for Los Angeles hoping to turn around his July performance. He went 0-4 last month to drop to 8-8.

Oakland continues to have the best record in the majors and hopes to keep it going tonight at home against Kansas City. Sonny Gray takes a six-game winning streak and 12-3 record into the start for the Athletics. He didn't give up more than one earned run in any of his five July starts to lower his ERA to 2.65.

Doug Fister has been nearly as good for Washington. He's scheduled tonight at home against Philadelphia. He will be looking to win his sixth straight decision. The 10-game winner is 5-0 in his last six starts, with a 2.21 ERA.


AKRON, Ohio (AP) -- Justin Rose shot a 3-under 67 to move into the clubhouse lead in the second round of the Bridgestone Invitational. Rose moved to 8-under par to take a one-shot lead over first round leader Marc Leishman who put up a 69.

Tiger Woods struggled to a 1-over 71 and fell seven shots off the pace.


RENO, Nev. (AP) -- Nick Watney has widened his lead early in the second round of the Barracuda Championship on the PGA Tour. Watney has tallied eight points under the modified Stableford scoring system to give him a total of 26. That puts him six ahead of Jeff Overton and Bryce Molder.


BLAINE, Minn. (AP) -- Gary Hallberg, Mike Goodes, Gene Sauers and Bobby Wadkins all have a share of the clubhouse lead in the opening round of the Champions Tour's 3M Championship after shooting 6-under 66's.

Two-time winner Bernhard Langer (LAHN'-gur) is coming off a runaway victory in the Senior British Open last week that was his fourth major title on the 50-and over tour. He's still on the course.
