There's a new voice of the Los Angeles Clippers, as Brian Sieman was named the team's new radio announcer. Sieman had previously been the play-by-play radio voice of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Houston Astros asked for permission to speak with Dodgers assistant GM Logan White for their vacant GM job. White is as responsible as anyone for the Dodgers' recent success. He's generally regarded as one of the best in the game at scouting and drafting talent.

And finally, the Lakers soap opera continues, as Phil Jackson had some choice words for the organization. Expect more of these media events as training camp approaches.
