iStock/Thinkstock(MIAMI) -- Chris Bosh's tenure in Miami could be coming to an end. 

The 33-year-old big man hasn't played since February 2016 due to repeated issues with blood clots. Sources tell ESPN that Bosh, the Miami Heat, and the NBA Players' Association have tentatively agreed to a deal allowing both sides to move on.

Bosh has remained on the Heat roster as he recovers from the clots.

While he is guaranteed more than $50 million over the next two seasons, much of the money the Heat owe Bosh is covered by insurance. The agreement is expected to remove Bosh's salary from the team's salary cap figures.

One complication in coming to an agreement has been the state of the league's collective bargaining agreement. The new CBA takes effect in July and has new policies regarding player health. Those policies are in part based on Bosh's situation.

Bosh has said repeatedly that he hopes to find a way to receive treatment and return to the court. Miami's doctors refused to clear him to play last fall.

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- The contract transferring Babe Ruth from the Boston Red Sox to the New York Yankees is going to auction, ESPN reports.

Josh Evans of auction house Lelands.com said the original copy of the December 1919 document "transcends everything," and that it "changed America." It represents the deal in which then-Red Sox owner Harry Frazee sold Ruth to the Yankees in a deal totaling $100,000. The Yankees also loaned another $300,000 to Frazee to complete the deal, using a mortgage on Boston's Fenway Park. If Frazee defaulted on the loan, ESPN reports, the Yankees would have owned Fenway -- Boston's home field.

One original copy of the document, which was last sold for $996,000 in 2005, onced belonged to then-Yankees owner Jacob Ruppert, according to ESPN.  Both Ruppert and Frazee's originals were held by collector Barry Halper, until Evans visited his home in the early 1990s. Evans then purchased Frazee's copy for $25,000, and it later auctioned in 1993 for $99,000.  

Evans bought Ruppert's version of the contract, and sold it to another collector for $150,000. After 25 years, that collector is now consigning Ruppert's copy of Babe Ruth's Yankees contract to Lelands for the current auction.

Of collectible professional athletic documents, contracts involving Babe Ruth are among the most valuable, ESPN reports.

Lelands will also auction Ruth's 1927 World Series ring, now believed to be owned by Charlie Sheen.

Jonathan Bachman/Getty Images(NEW YORK) --  Oklahoma City Thunder's Enes Kanter has received online death threats and suspects his recent detention at a Romanian airport stems from his criticism of Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan. On Monday the center said the United States "is my home now," ESPN reports.

At a news conference in New York Monday, Kanter spoke out about his desire for U.S. citizenship just two days after being detained at a Romanian airport due to the cancellation of his Turkish passport.

Kanter, who often speaks out against Turkish President Erdogan, according to ESPN, repeated that he believes the passport incident is connected to such frequent criticism, saying Monday, "I know how bad of a man he is."

iStock/Thinkstock(CONCORD, N.C.) -- It might not have earned him any points, but that $1 million prize sure must have been sweet for Kyle Busch who won the Monster Energy All-Star Race on Saturday Night.

Not only did he take home the $1 million, he also recorded his first winning race in a Cup car at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

It wasn't like Busch had no competition in the final, 10-lap stage.

Jimmie Johnson literally gave Busch a run for his money, hoping that Brad Keselowki would be able to slow Busch on the final restart, but Busch passed Keselowski -- running on old tires because he had no fresh ones left -- and Johnson on the first of the last 10 laps and never looked back, winning by 1.274 seconds.

Kyle Larson finished second, and Johnson finished third with Keselowski slipping to ninth.

The rest of the top 10 were Kurt Busch in fourth place, Jamie McMurray in fifth, Kevin Harvick in sixth, Chase Elliott in seventh, Joey Logano in eighth and Denny Hamlin in 10th.

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series returns to action in earnest next Sunday at Charlotte for the Coca-Cola 600.

Ingram Publishing/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Enes Kanter, an NBA center with Turkish roots, is returning to the U.S. on Sunday after having been detained for several hours at a Romanian airport following statements he made criticizing Turkey’s president.

"The reason behind it is just, of course, my political views," Kanter said of his detainment in a cellphone video captured at the airport on Saturday and posted to Twitter. "And the person who did it is Recep Tayyip Erdogan."

Kanter, 25, a popular player with the Oklahoma City Thunder, is a supporter of Pennsylvania-based preacher Fethullah Gülen, a staunch critic of Erdogan. The Turkish president has blamed Gülen for the failed July 2016 coup that took place in the country. Erdogan has called for the extradition of Gülen, who has denied involvement in the attempted coup.

In the video posted online on Saturday, Kanter also refers to the widely circulated footage of Erdogan's security detail beating up demonstrators in Washington, D.C. this week following his meeting with President Trump.

"You know he attacked the people in Washington," Kanter said in the video. "He's a bad, bad man. He's a dictator."

Kanter is now headed back to the U.S. via London. It is unclear how he is able to travel with an invalid passport.

In addition to the video, Kanter also posted a photo of himself giving a "thumbs up" on Twitter, acknowledging that his travel restrictions had been lifted.

He promised to elaborate on the situation at a press conference in New York, which is expected later on Sunday.

"Gonna give press conference tomorrow in NY," he wrote on Twitter. "Got lots of things to say with lots of crazy stories."

Kanter's support for Gülen has caused a rift within his own family, according to the BBC, which reported that Kanter's father published a letter disowning his son in the weeks following the failed coup attempt.

Bruce Bennett/Getty Images(ANAHEIM, Calif.) -- Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf has been fined thousands of dollars for making an "inappropriate remark" during Game 4 of the Western Conference finals.

The NHL announced on Saturday that Getzlaf will face a $10,000 fine. This comes shortly before Game 5 against the Nashville Predators.

"Getzlaf's comment in Thursday's game, particularly as directed to another individual on the ice, was inappropriately demeaning and disrespectful, and crossed the line into behavior that we deem unacceptable," Colin Campbell, NHL's executive vice president of hockey operations, said in a statement. "The type of language chosen and utilized in this instance will not be tolerated in the National Hockey League."

Getzlaf avoided a suspension, but was fined the maximum amount. The NHL said he violated a policy that "prohibits inappropriate and offensive remarks, and the use of obscene, profane or abusive language or gestures."
