Dallas Checking Out Seraphin

Tuesday, July 7    

According to Sheridan Hoops’ Michael Scotto, the Dallas Mavericks “have expressed interest” in Seraphin, while the Los Angeles Lakers, San Antonio Spurs, Phoenix Suns and Wizards have done the same. 

Seraphin is no stranger to free agency either. 

Last summer he accepted a one-year, $3.8 million qualifying offer from the Wizards as a restricted free agent. As a result, he can now pursue opportunities on the open market.

Washington continues to make sense as a landing spot for Seraphin, namely because the Wizards are without a true backup center at the moment. With Kris Humphries and Nene holding down the power forward spot, DeJuan Blair is the only other big under contract, and he’s merely a 6’7” tweener with no rim-protecting prowess.

In 79 appearances last season, Seraphin averaged 6.6 points, 3.6 rebounds and 0.7 blocks while shooting 51.3 percent from the field. He also drilled a career-best 70.1 percent of his shots inside of three feet, looks that accounted for 46.9 percent of his field-goal attempts, according to Basketball-Reference.com.

While the Wizards have done plenty of work to get smaller and more versatile this summer by adding swingmen such as Jared Dudley (6’7″) and Alan Anderson (6’6″)—who agreed to a deal with Washington on Tuesday, per Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski—Seraphin is a steady role player who can chip in easy buckets and help fortify the team’s interior defense.

Body Of Missing 7-Month-Old Boy Found In Connecticut River

EAST HADDAM, Conn. (CBSNew york/AP) — The body of a 7-month-old boy was found in the Connecticut River Tuesday night, two nights after police say his father jumped with him into the river.

Middletown police detectives and Connecticut State Police have since confirmed that the body was that of Aaden Moreno.

Aaden was reported missing when police say his father, 22-year-old Tony Moreno, jumped from the Arrigoni Bridge between Middletown and Portland. A search began immediately and extended into Monday and Tuesday.

Police spoke with family members and visited homes where they believed Moreno may have taken the child.

Firefighters pulled the elder Moreno from the river and he was listed Monday in serious condition in Hartford Hospital. Police said he was alert and conscious and said charges were expected when the investigation was completed.

Officers used police dogs, checking wooded areas as they spent hours Sunday night and Monday looking for Aaden.

“We’re leaving no stone unturned,” Middletown Mayor Daniel Drew had said a few hours before police confirmed the start of the recovery operation.

The Hartford Courant reported Monday night that the baby had been the focus of a child custody case between his parents, and the mother, Adrienne Oyola, had sought a restraining order against Moreno saying she feared for her safety and the baby’s.

A temporary restraining order had been in effect from June 17 to June 29, when it was denied by a judge, the newspaper reported, citing court records.

Sources Say Joni Mitchell Is Expected To Make A Full Recovery! Get An Update On Her Condition HERE!

So many reports have been flying in the past few months about Joni Mitchell‘s condition, that it’s been difficult to keep up with how she’s actually doing after suffering a brain anuerysm back in March.

One minute people are saying she’s in dire straits and the next they’re saying she’s fine.

Recently, singer David Crosby, who used to date the folk musician, said that she wasn’t able to speak — or at least as far as he knew.

[ Related: Joni Is Reportedly NOT In A Coma! ]

But as it turns out, sources are now saying that she’s completely capable of feeding herself!

According to court documents, Rebecca Thyne, the lawyer handling the 71-year-old’s conservatorship, stopped by the singer’s home at the end of last month.

The attorney noted that not only was Joni improving, she was also “expected to make a full recovery.”

The papers also say the folk icon would like for her long-time friend and current caretaker Leslie Morris to remain her conservator.

What’s strange about these docs is that the visit happened around the same time David opened up about his ex’s inability to talk.

We’re glad it seems like Joni is getting better, however we can’t help but wonder why these reports are so conflicting.

What do U think, Perezcious readers?

Money Smart: Financial Tips for Stay at Home Moms

The age-old argument between stay-at-home moms and career women can go on for years. Some may argue stay-at-home mommies have the toughest job there is; a round-the-clock, 24/7 job of taking care their children, but they don’t get paid for it.

According to How Stuff Works, the United States has 5 million full time moms, some who even quit lucrative careers to tend to their families. But hope is not lost for those moms who opted out of the traditional 9-to-5.

Check out some tips to for full-time mommies to opt into their monthly budget.

1.) Where is the Money Going?
Accessing where all of your money is going is vital to creating a secure, financial budget. You can’t help what you don’t address, so it’s important to keep track of every penny. What do you spend money on that you can make at home? Do you really need cable TV? Can you check off a few of those extra expenses on your phone bill? Be honest with yourself about your needs versus your wants.

2.) Cook Meals at Home That Will Last
Going out to eat can get really expensive. By the time you add up appetizers, drinks, money for tip and parking fare, you’ve spent more than you’d initially thought. Consider eating out a luxury, something you do to reward yourself for an accomplishment, or once every three weeks. Instead, opt for yummy at home meals that are not only cost efficient, but can last over the span of a few days.

Try different recipes, too. For example, when making a big pot of spaghetti sauce, put some sauce up for chilli night. Buy chicken in bulk and use it with different recipes throughout the week. Or if you must have a dinner night out, check out websites to see where kids eat free on certain days and times of the week.

3.) Coupons Are Your Friend

Oh, coupons, other wise known as, free money! Make it your duty to grab a Sunday newspaper and cut coupons for your household needs. Not only is it free, but a little piece of paper can save you money when buying what you would normally buy anyhow.

4.) Consider Part Time Work From Home
In today’s economy, there are valid opportunities to work from home and make some serious dough. Many companies off customer service positions where all you’ll need is WIFI and a phone. Check out some positions that are flexible that allow you to spend time at home, but make some extra cash on the side.

Andrew McCutchen Helps out Pirates Grounds Crew After Man Gets Stuck in Tarp

Members of the Pittsburgh Pirates grounds grew were firmly seated aboard the struggle bus before Andrew McCutchen dropped his mitt and helped out.

With roaring winds and torrential rain interrupting Tuesday’s game against the San Diego Padres, stadium workers tried to unroll a tarp as quickly as possible. It didn’t go well.

Things hit rock bottom when one crew member actually got swallowed up in it, which is when McCutchen and teammate Sean Rodriguez decided to hop in.

To keep the ship from sinking, looks like it’s all hands on deck for the Pirates:
