PM Roundup: Hunter King; Mike Trout Gets Huge New Contract, A New Low For LeBron James


The Big Lead’s PM Sports Roundup, which is currently flying to New York City and cannot take your calls.

Hunter has a new pup: Hunter King has a new dog and is showing it off on her Instagram account. I mean, objectively, that’s a cute dog.

Trout gets paid: Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels are reportedly close to agreeing to a new 13-year, $430 million contract. It will be the largest contract in professional sports history and could signal a shift in how baseball does business, as players will likely start re-signing with their clubs rather than risking it on the open market.

A new low for LeBron?: Is missing the playoffs this season the lowest point of LeBron James’ career?
