Sources: Stallworth had marijuana in blood
After fatally striking a pedestrian on the MacArthur Causeway in a March drunk driving accident, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte' Stallworth also tested positive for marijuana use, law enforcement sources say. Stallworth, 28, is serving one month in jail after pleading guilty last month to DUI manslaughter. Miami-Dade prosecutors say his blood alcohol level was .126, well above the legal limit, when his Bentley hit and killed Mario Reyes, 59, on the morning of March 14. Stallworth's test results, which have yet to be released, showed traces of marijuana, according to sources with knowledge of the results.

Rangers going on spending spree?
Now that the Rangers have created an extra $5.457 million in cap space by sending Scott Gomez to Montreal yesterday in a slam-dunk trade for winger Chris Higgins and blueline prospect Ryan McDonagh, the question is whether Glen Sather will spend it wisely, whether he will keep it in his pocket -- or whether the GM will have a first week of July like the one he had last year. It means that, should they so choose, the Rangers can be players for Minnesota sniper Marian Gaborik; or perhaps for Detroit's Marian Hossa, if he reaches free agency. They might check in on Montreal's impending free-agent defenseman Mike Komisarek, who, like Higgins, hails from Long Island.(New York Post)
Rockets target Bosh
Once the Toronto Raptors figure out that Chris Bosh will be departing via free agency a year from now, they may be inclined to trade him this summer. Their choice is to trade him to the Rockets now and get something in return, or wait until he signs with the Rockets a year from now and get nothing. If they decide to deal him, Rockets general manager Daryl Morey almost certainly would like to be at the front of the line.
