Larry Stone: In hiring first coach Dave Hakstol, Kraken more concerned about getting it right than making big splash

When the fledgling hockey team in Seattle settled on “Kraken” as its name in July 2020, I wasn’t a big fan. Frankly, I thought it was hokey. But I praised team officials for having the courage of their convictions and not taking the safe route. When you’re building an organization from scratch, a little audacity is a good thing.

Matt Calkins: Former Sonics coach Nate McMillan had great success in Seattle. What he’s doing now with Atlanta might be his finest work yet.

The statement from Pacers president of basketball operations Kevin Pritchard read as follows: “On behalf of the Simon family and the Pacers organization, I’d like to thank Nate for his years with the team. This was a very hard decision for us to make; but we feel it’s in the best interest of the organization to move in a different direction.”

Tim Dahlberg: A different U.S. Open than imagined at Torrey Pines

The spectacular ocean vistas will fill TV screens as usual, along with the obligatory shots of hang gliders prancing above the cliffs of Southern California.
