Ojeleye, Celtics top Knicks in summer league play

Semi Ojeleye scored 21 points and the Boston Celtics slowed down New York Knicks rookie Kevin Knox to advance in the NBA Summer League with an 82-75 victory Thursday at Las Vegas.

Knox finished with 15 points but the No. 9 pick from Kentucky shot just 5 for 20 from the field for the Knicks (1-3).

Jabari Bird had 13 points and Guerschon Yabusele added 12 for the Celtics (3-1).

Free-agent forward Jonas Jerebko signed with the Warriors. Jerebko has played nine NBA seasons with Utah, Boston and Detroit.

The Bulls waived guard Sean Kilpatrick. Kilpatrick averaged 15.4 points in nine games for Chicago after spending time last year with the Nets, Bucks and Clippers.

The Thunder re-signed guard Raymond Felton. The 13-year veteran appeared in all 82 games last season and averaged 6.9 points, 2.5 assists and 1.9 rebounds as a backup.

Former Knicks star Charles Oakley is being accused of gambling fraud after a wager at a Las Vegas casino last weekend, casino regulators said.

Oakley was arrested Sunday at the Cosmopolitan casino-resort. He was booked and later released from jail. Court records show he is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 7.

HOCKEY

NHL: The Chicago Blackhawks traded Marian Hossa and Vinnie Hinostroza to the Arizona Coyotes, parting with a promising young forward to clear out a troublesome contract.

The Blackhawks also sent defenseman Jordan Oesterle and a third-round pick in the 2019 draft to the Coyotes for forwards Marcus Kruger, MacKenzie Entwistle and Jordan Maletta, defenseman Andrew Campbell and a fifth-round pick in next year’s draft.

The 39-year-old Hossa isn’t expected to play again, but he is signed through the 2020-21 season at a $5.275 million cap hit.

FOOTBALL

NFL: Police responded to several nonviolent disputes at the Georgia home where Buffalo Bills star LeSean McCoy was attempting to evict his former girlfriend before an unidentified man bloodied the 34-year-old woman in a home invasion, according to reports released.

Police responded early Tuesday to the home in Milton, just outside Atlanta, after McCoy’s ex-girlfriend Delicia Cordon called 911. The police reports show that officers had been called to the home in July 2017 and in April and June of this year, but no violence was reported during any of those incidents.

CYCLING

TOUR DE FRANCE: Daniel Martin won an uphill finish to claim Stage 6, while Greg Van Avermaet kept the overall lead for a third consecutive day.

Defending champion Chris Froome crossed eight seconds after Martin in 18th.

Martin broke away on the straight 1.2-mile ascent of the Mur de Bretagne, winning the 112-mile leg that started in the western port city of Brest in over four hours.

AUTO RACING

NASCAR TRUCK SERIES: Ben Rhodes raced to his second career win in front of his home state fans at Kentucky Speedway.

Rhodes, a native of Louisville, opted not to change his tires on the final pit and the gamble paid off as he took the lead out of pit road and then steadily pulled away from Stewart Friesen over the final 10 laps.

Friesen finished just under a second behind Rhodes. Matt Crafton, Brandon Jones and John Hunter Nemechek rounded out the Top 5.
