MLB LOCKOUT

NEW YORK (AP) – There will be a Major League Baseball season. Players have voted to accept management’s latest offer for a new labor deal, paving the way to end a 99-day lockout and salvage a 162-game regular season. Owners were unanimous in their approval of the package, which still needs ratification by all players. MLB sent the players an offer Thursday and gave them until 3 p.m. to accept in order to play a full season.

 
The agreement calls for the luxury tax threshold to rise from $210 million last year to $230 million this season and gradually to $242 million in 2026. The minimum salary will increase from $570,500 to about $700,000 this year, with $20,000 annual increases. A new $50 million bonus pool was established for players not yet eligible for arbitration, a way to boost salaries for young stars.
 
The agreement will allow training camps to open this week in Florida and Arizona, more than three weeks after they were scheduled to on Feb. 16. Opening day is being planned for April 7, a little more than a week behind the original date on March 31.
 
The deal will also set off a rapid-fire round of free agency. Carlos Correa, Freddie Freeman and Kris Bryant are among 139 big leaguers still without a team, including some who might benefit from the adoption of a universal designated hitter.

NBA-SCHEDULE

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – It was dubbed “Boo Ben” night in Philadelphia as former 76ers All-Star Ben Simmons returned for the first time since being traded last month. Instead, the Brooklyn Nets turned the fans on the 76ers. Kevin Durant scored 18 of his 25 points in a dominating first half before the Nets completed a 129-100 blowout win over the Sixers. Seth Curry added 24 points, and Kyrie Irving had 22 for the Nets, who finally looked like the team expected to challenge for the NBA’s Eastern Conference title. Simmons watched from the bench as he continues to recover from a back injury. He received plenty of vitriol from the crowd, but he had the last laugh. Joel Embiid had 27 points and 12 rebounds for the 76ers, but James Harden finished with just 11 points. Fans did much booing of the home team, which trailed 72-51 at halftime and were down by 32 in the third quarter.

 
In the other NBA game on Thursday, Steph Curry dropped in 34 points and the Warriors closed on a 13-0 run to beat the Nuggets, 113-102. Jordan Poole had 21 points, and Jonathan Kuminga and Klay Thompson added 18 each as Golden State salvaged the final of the four-game season series. Denver’s Nikola Jokic had 23 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists, just missing his 19th triple double of the season.
