Chi-Town Bound

Goudelock, a former College of Charleston star, may be going to the Chicago Bulls.

Another tweeter, Mike Jones, who works with Yahoo! Sports, says 34s
Goudelock and Morris will likely play Summer League, according to Mitch on Thurs. Morris for sure.

It will be interesting to see where Andrew Goudelock goes. He started two playoff games for the Lakers last season, who got swept by the Western Conference champion San Antonio Spurs in four games.

The NBA Summer League starts in Las Vegas in a few days. He is certain to get looks by several teams during the event.

Steve Gleason audio

The folks at "Mayhem in the AM" on 790 the Zone in Atlanta had one of the most tasteless sports bits ever heard today, about Steve Gleason.

Today, he guest wrote Peter King's Monday Morning Quarterback article. Steak Shapiro, Chris Dimino, and Nick Celini did a bit during their show at WQXI-AM in Atlanta, which was tasteless to say the least.

790's GM:  "We deeply regret the offensive programming that aired this morning on “Mayhem In The AM” on 790 The Zone, related to former New Orleans Saints player Steve Gleason and his battle with ALS. We suspended the three individuals involved immediately following their comments and have since terminated their employment. 790 The Zone, our owners, sponsors and partners in no way endorse or support this kind of content. We sincerely apologize to Mr. Gleason, his family and all those touched by ALS."

The audio is from Chria225:
