NBA: Milwaukee agreed to a contract extension with Giannis Antetokounmpo, locking up one of the most versatile players in the NBA in a deal reportedly worth $100 million over four years.

The 6-foot-11 Antetokounmpo averaged 16.9 points, 7.7 rebounds and 4.3 assists last season, his third in the NBA.

• The New York Knicks re-signed veteran forward Lou Amundson.

The 6-foot-9 Amundson has played for 10 teams. He appeared in 70 games over the last two seasons with New York. He averaged 1.8 points and 1.7 rebounds over seven minutes a game last season.

 The lowly Philadelphia 76ers are set to open their practice facility this week in Camden, New Jersey – likely to be recognized as the top-tier standard for the NBA. It comes with two regulation-size basketball courts, a 2,800-square-foot locker room, corporate sponsorship and a chef plucked from one of Philly’s top restaurants.

The Sixers believe the state-of-the art equipment and sports science stations could help lure free agents who might need a final incentive to sign with the worst team in the NBA.


U.S. MEN: The United States will play its home World Cup qualifier against Mexico on Nov. 11 in Columbus, Ohio, for the fifth straight time.

RIO 2016: Fifteen of the 558 athletes in the U.S. delegation at the Rio Olympics – or slightly less than 3 percent – had therapeutic-use exemptions in force during the games.

The exemptions, known as TUEs, came under increased scrutiny last week after Russian hackers broke into the database of the World Anti-Doping Agency and posted confidential medical information online from some athletes.

TUEs let athletes use otherwise-banned substances to treat long-standing medical conditions, such as attention-deficit disorder and asthma.
