Altuve leads All-Star voting…Bulls keep LaVine, Lopez to Bucks…Na ends win drought

UNDATED (AP) – Astros second baseman Jose Altuve  is the leading vote-getter for the July 17 All-Star game and will head an American League squad that has dominated the game over the last 25 years. Altuve claimed 4.8 million votes, one season after being named the AL MVP. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper will start for the National League in his home ballpark.

CHICAGO (AP) – Zach LaVine  is staying with the Chicago Bulls, after the team matched a four-year, $80 million offer sheet that he got from the Sacramento Kings. LaVine was a restricted free agent, which meant the Bulls had right of first refusal. He appeared in only 24 games for the Bulls last season, averaging 16.7 points on 38 percent shooting.

UNDATED (AP) – A person familiar with the negotiations says Brook Lopez has agreed to a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Bucks. The 10-year NBA veteran averaged 13 points for the Lakers last season, about five points below his career average. A person familiar with the terms says Zaza Pachulia is signing a one-year, $2.4 million contract with the Pistons.

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) – Kevin Na has broken a nearly seven-year winless drought on the PGA Tour by shooting a 6-under 64 for a five-stroke victory at A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier. Na birdied six of his first 10 holes to open up a big lead over third-round co-leader Kelly Kraft. The 34-year-old Na cruised from there and finished at 19-under 261.

ONEIDA, Wis. (AP) – Sei Young Kim became the first player in LPGA Tour history to go lower than 30 under in a tournament as she earned a nine-stroke victory at the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic. Kim ended up at minus-31 after closing the tournament with a 7-under 65. That broke by four shots to par the record Kim had shared with Annika Sorenstam.
