Mac McClung scored 17 points in 16 minutes, Paris Bass added 15 and the Los Angeles Lakers opened the California Classic with a 100-66 win over the Miami Heat on Saturday. Scotty Pippen Jr. scored 14 and Cole Swider added 13 for the Lakers, who never trailed in the first summer league game of the season. First-round pick Nikola Jovic scored three points on 1-for-6 shooting for Miami. In the second game, Sacramento got 26 points from No. 4 pick Keegan Murray and defeated Golden State.

Zion Williamson agent Austin Brown says the star forward has agreed to a five-year extension with the New Orleans Pelicans worth $193 million. Brown tells The Associated Press that the deal could be worth up to $231 million. The agreement sets the stage for the 2019 top overall draft choice out of Duke to give an All-Star caliber boost to a squad that recently made the playoffs without him. ESPN first reported the agreement that comes despite Williamson missing all of last season with a foot injury. But the 6-foot-6, 280-pound Williamson was an All-Star two seasons ago when he averaged 27 points. The Pelicans have not announced the extension, which under league rules can't be signed until July 6.
