DETROIT (AP) Ray McCallum scored 26 points, Jason Calliste added 20 and Detroit hit its free throws in an 84-76 win over Green Bay on Saturday.
McCallum was just 6 of 15 from the field and Calliste was 3 of 12, but the pair combined to go 25 of 27 from the free-throw line. That was the story for the Titans (10-5, 2-0 Horizon League), who shot 37.5 percent from the floor but 90.5 percent from the line.
Juwan Howard Jr. added 16 points for Detroit, which never trailed in the second half but saw the Phoenix (6-9, 0-2) close within 71-68 on Alec Brown's free throws with 3:05 to play. But Doug Anderson's layup and Howard's foul shots pushed the lead back to seven, and McCallum and Calliste went 8 of 9 from the line in the final 1:10 to seal the victory.
Keifer Sykes led Green Bay with 21 points.
The Patriots offered the Redskins a first-round pick in a trade for disgruntled left tackle Trent Williams but Washington rebuffed the offer, a source with knowledge of the situation told NBC Sports Washington.
Kevin Sheehan of Team 980 reported the same news Thursday morning on his radio show.
That call from New England came a few weeks ago while the Redskins were holding training camp in Richmond, the source explained. The Patriots are no longer pursuing Williams.
Washington has made clear they don’t intend to trade Williams, which makes sense publicly. Still, there have been at least three teams to contact the Redskins about trading for Williams.
It’s believed the Redskins want a first and a second-round pick to move on from Williams, who is refusing to report to the team despite having two years left on his contract.
The reports around Williams’ holdout have been significant, mainly centering around the suggestion that the seven-time Pro Bowler will not return to Washington due to a misdiagnosis from the team’s medical staff last season.
Multiple sources near Williams have been clear that he will not return to the Redskins and will miss regular-season action.
Earlier this week, Washington head coach Jay Gruden said there is no update on the Williams situation and he must prepare his team with the players that have reported.
“It is what it is,” Gruden said.
