PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The police officers who helped deliver a Christmas baby on a subway train reunited with the newborn boy and his parents Friday morning, trading the chaos of the dingy rail car where they first met for the comfort of a hospital room.
Josh Smith, a standout forward dropped at the start of the week by the Detroit Pistons, signed a new NBA deal Friday with the Houston Rockets, the team announced. The move came after the Pistons released Smith on Monday, less than halfway into a four-year contract that had been worth $54 million (44 million euros). Smith, 29, had averaged 13.1 points and 7.2 rebounds over 28 games this season for Detroit. Houston center Dwight Howard was a team-mate of Smith's when both played on an amateur club in Atlanta.
