A Turkish court has accepted an indictment charging the father of NBA player Enes Kanter with ”membership in a terror group Andre Holmes Jersey ,” the country’s official news agency reported.
The indictment followed an investigation of Mehmet Kanter, and prosecutors planned to seek his conviction and a prison term of five to 10 years at trial, Anadolu Agency said.
It’s unclear when the trial in western Tekirdag province would begin.
Enes Kanter, who plays for the New York Knicks, is a follower of a U.S.-based Turkish cleric who the government accuses of masterminding a failed military coup in 2016. Cleric Fethullah Gulen has denied the allegation, but tens of thousands of people suspected of ties to his network have been arrested or fired.
The elder Kanter, a professor, was purged from public service after the coup attempt and detained for five days last summer.
WASHINGTON (AP) – Getting a jump on the trade deadline to add talent to the back of their bullpen, the Washington Nationals picked up right-hander Kelvin Herrera from the Kansas City Royals for three minor leaguers.
The Nationals sent infielder Kelvin Gutierrez, outfielder Blake Perkins and 17-year-old pitcher Yohanse Morel to Kansas City in the deal announced during Washington’s doubleheader against the New York Yankees.
Herrera has 14 saves and a 1.05 ERA this season. He’s allowed three earned runs in 25 2/3 innings while striking out 22 batters and walking two.
The 28-year-old is a two-time AL All-Star who helped Kansas City win the 2015 World Series – and is among the last players left from that title team. He is 23-27 with 57 saves and a 2.75 ERA across 442 games in relief over eight seasons in the majors.
ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) – Mohamed Salah showed signs of discomfort with his injured left shoulder while taking part in Egypt’s final training session before the team’s World Cup match against Russia on Tuesday.
Salah didn’t appear to be moving his shoulder fully during upper-body exercises on Monday. Moments earlier, Salah took part in light jogging around the St. Petersburg Stadium field and ran at the back of the group, with one coach gently nudging his left shoulder as the striker dribbled with a ball.
Salah Jordan Phillips Jersey , the Premier League’s player of the season, is recovering from injuring his shoulder while playing for Liverpool in last month’s Champions League final. He was an unused substitute in Egypt’s first group game at the World Cup – a 1-0 loss against Uruguay on Friday.
ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) – FIFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against Mexico after its fans used an anti-gay slur during the team’s 1-0 win over Germany.
Some Mexican supporters chanted the slur when Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer prepared to take a goal kick in the 24th minute of Sunday’s game at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.
Fans in Mexico use the chant to insult opposing goalkeepers as they take a goal kick. Widely considered a slur, some argue there is no discriminatory intent.
FIFA did not elaborate on the nature of the disciplinary proceedings and didn’t say when a hearing would take place.
TRACK AND FIELD
LONDON (AP) – Caster Semenya, the world and Olympic 800 meters champion, will go to the Court of Arbitration for Sport to fight ”unfair” regulations that hinder certain female athletes.
The IAAF brought in controversial new rules in April that mean some women with high natural testosterone levels could be excluded from middle-distance races.
Semenya, a two-time Olympic and three-time world champion, is the highest-profile athlete expected to be impacted by the rules that divide medical opinion.
The South African’s lawyers, Norton Rose Fulbright, which has offices in London, issued a statement on Monday saying the athlete would ”file the legal challenge to ensure, safeguard and protect the rights of all women on the basis the regulations are irrational, unjustifiable Tedric Thompson Jersey , and in violation of the IAAF Constitution (based in Monaco), the Olympic Charter, the laws of Monaco, the laws of jurisdiction in which international competitions are held, and of universally recognized human rights.
One of the first passes thrown by Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay Packers camp was as noteworthy for who was competing for the ball as much as the play’s result.
Cornerback Kevin King, locked in coverage deep against receiver Randall Cobb, appeared to wrestle away an interception, though the ever-competitive quarterback disputed that call.
Coach Mike McCarthy took a diplomatic approach.
”Yeah, I’m a head coach so I thought it was an excellent play by both guys,” McCarthy said Friday, drawing laughs. ”I like the way Randall finished with the ball but I like the position that Kevin was in.”
Outcome aside, the most important takeaway might be that two players who could be pivotal to Green Bay’s success are healthy again.
Cobb revealed Friday that he had ankle surgery after offseason workouts. He was spotted at an airport with a walking boot on his right foot last month.
Doctors ”went in and pretty much just removed a piece of cartilage that was giving me some problems,” Cobb said . ”Obviously not that big of a deal. But feeling a lot better than I did before.”
Enough so that the senior member of the Packers receiving corps is a full go in camp .
”I think the first call DeVante Parker Jersey , the first play … where the ball goes deep to Randall, I think that tells you the kind of shape (Cobb is in),” McCarthy said.
Cobb’s health is important for a receiving corps that lost Jordy Nelson after the respected veteran was cut in the offseason in a money-saving move. It left Cobb and Davante Adams as the Packers’ top wideouts, plus a bevy of young players competing for targets that once went to Nelson.
”At this point, it’s just getting my conditioning back. I was here the entire offseason working with our strength and conditioning staff trying to get back and get right,” Cobb said.
King had left shoulder surgery after his injury-shortened rookie year. The shoulder maligned him for much of last season, and King was limited to individual workouts in the offseason as he recovered.
But King is a full go now, and his interception against Cobb in practice Thursday offered a glimpse of King’s full potential when healthy. He is talented enough to be the Packers’ top cornerback.
King wasn’t done. On the next play, he broke up a throw for receiver Geronimo Allison and ended up hitting the ground.
”I could have done that last year,” King said in the locker room.
Maybe, but he might have been in pain.
The shoulder no longer hurts, King said. The injury during his rookie season also sharpened his mental game.
”Mentally, it elevated me. It’s been positive for me K.J. Wright Jersey ,” King added.
A healthy King could do wonders at a cornerback position beleaguered by injuries the last couple of years. The 6-foot-3 King has the length to play effective press coverage for new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine.
Now King just needs to stay on the field after making 31 tackles in nine games last season, including five starts.
”There’s no question about Kevin’s ability and his level of talent and the ability to play,” McCarthy said. ”Yes, he made two competitive plays on the ball. … The biggest thing I’m happy about is Kevin’s healthy and he’s come back from the shoulder surgery and is off to a good start.”
NOTES: OLB Nick Perry, who is starting camp on the physically-unable-to-perform list, said he had no concerns about being ready for the opener on Sept. 9 against Chicago. Perry, who had offseason ankle surgery, and Clay Matthews are the veteran leaders at a position otherwise short on experience and production. ”We’re still going to take it one day at a time just to make sure that everything goes smoothly and I’m here for the long haul,” Perry said. … Rodgers and TE Jimmy Graham showed rapport in connecting for some tough pass plays during team drills. Graham was signed in the offseason as a free agent. … A pass from Rodgers over the middle during a two-minute drill was picked off at the goal line by ILB Blake Martinez. … Two backups, QB DeShone Kizer and TE Robert Tonyan, connected on a 15-yard scoring pass in coverage for the offense’s only score in two-minute drill work.
