Alex Smith To Redskins, James Harden Highest Scoring Triple Double In History, Love Out
Wednesday, January 31, 2018
NFL free agency officially begins on March 14th, but big trades are already going down. The Washington Redskins reached a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith for a reported $71 million. Smith turns 35 in May but had a career high in passing yards this season. Current Redskins QB Kirk Cousins indicated he wasn't likely to sign a long term deal with the team, so they're investing in Smith to lead the team for the next few years. The trade isn't official until free agency begins. No word yet on where Kirk Cousins will end up, but there's speculation he could become the highest paid player in the League for the 2018 season.
Houston Rockets James Harden had one for the books by posting the highest scoring triple double in NBA history with 60 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds. Even LeBron James was impressed by Harden. He tweeted, ' That's insane G! 60 point Triple Dub. Sheesh!!!' The Rockets beat the Orlando Magic 114-107.
In other NBA news, the Cleveland Cavaliers got more bad news when Kevin Love fractured his left hand during Tuesday's game against Detroit. It's likely Love will miss at least a month of playing time. He'll also miss the February 18th All-Star game
