WNBA: The Atlanta Dream acquired Olympic gold medalist Alesha Gray in a deal that sent two first-round picks to the Dallas Wings.

The deal gives the Wings the third overall pick in this year’s draft, as well as the Dream’s 2025 first-round pick.

Gray, the 2017 WNBA Rookie of the Year winner, is headed to Atlanta after the best season of his career with the Wings. The 28-year-old averaged 13.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 2022.

• The WNBA Players Association said Saturday it will investigate Derekah Hamby’s complaints about Las Vegas management after the Aces traded the two-time All-Star to the Los Angeles Sparks.

Hamby (29) said in an Instagram post that the aces attacked his personality and work ethic.

“Trading is part of the job,” Hamby said. “Lying, intimidating, manipulating and discriminating are not.”

The AP left a message seeking comment from the Aces.

Hamby agreed to a two-year contract extension with Las Vegas in June. She said in her Instagram post that Aces management said she knew she was pregnant at the time of the transaction.

“Wrong,” Hamby wrote. “On m’a dit que j’étais un “point d’interrogation” et qu’on m’a dit que j’allais “tomber à nouveau enceinte” en il y avait une inquietude quant à mon niveau d’engagement envers l “Equipped.”

She also said the Aces said they were concerned Hamby wasn’t ready for the season. Hamby said she plans to play this season.

obituary: Sal Bando, a three-time World Series champion with the Oakland Athletics and former Milwaukee Brewers CEO, has died. He was 78 years old.

According to a statement from his family, Bando died Friday night in Oconomowoc. The family said the former third man lost a battle with cancer that began more than five years ago.

Bando hit 254 with 242 homers and 1,039 RBI in 16 seasons with the Athletics and Brewers. The four-time All-Star, who also played for Arizona in college, won three straight titles from 1972 to 1974.


Women’s World Cup: American skier Mikaela Shifrin’s pursuit of a record victory in the 83rd World Cup tournament is still up in the air.

Shiffrin finished seventh, 0.39 seconds behind winner Elka Stohic of Slovenia in the downhill in Cortina d’Ampezzo on the track that will be used for the 2026 Milan-Cortina Olympics.

That’s why Shiffrin tied former teammate Lindsey Vonn for the women’s record with 82 wins each.

Men’s World Cup: Alexander Aamodt Kilde won his second men’s downhill world cup on the Streiff circuit in Kitzbühel, Austria, a day after the Norwegian narrowly avoided a high-speed crash on a tricky downhill.

The win made Kilde the first skater to win five runs in a season since Austrian Stefan Eberharter won seven in the 2001-02 campaign.

Having bandaged his right hand after breaking a leg in practice on Thursday, Kilde then needed a stunt recovery in the next day’s race to avoid a career-ending crash.


soccer: Pro Football Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed walked away from Bethune-Cookman in tears after a 15-minute goodbye in front of players and parents.

Reid made it clear that he did not leave of his own volition.

The Ed Reed Foundation announced on social media that the university refused to endorse Reed’s contract and “will not honor the principal agreement we made, which included provisions and resources to support student-athletes.”

The decision came less than a week after Reid lashed out at the school in a blasphemous social media post that went viral. Peyton Cookman was accused of having a dirty campus and not cleaning his office before he arrived. Then threatened to leave and told to “empty the trash” when he wasn’t even under contract.


European Tour: Shane Lowry has put himself in position to win the Abu Dhabi Championships in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates for a second time, but the Irishman has plenty of company in the stacked standings.

This includes, out of nowhere, compatriot and major winner Padraig Harrington.

Lowry, the 2019 champion, shot a 6-under 66 on Saturday to take the third-round lead with Francesco Molinari and Min-Woo Lee finishing 13-under overall.

There were 12 players within three strokes of his co-captains, including Harrington, 51, who shot 64.

LPGA: Brooke Henderson went from two days in complete control of her game to scoring a good score. The score was 3-under 69 and 3 strokes at the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions in Orlando, Florida.

Henderson was ready to fight, posting a 14-under 202 in the LPGA Tour season opener at Lake Nona. The Canadian will go into the final round with a three-stroke lead over Nelly Korda (68) and Japan’s Nasa Hatoka (66).

The Swedish Maja Stark (68) and the English Charlie Hall (69) are five times behind.
