Sarah Talalay of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports:

Attorneys have reached a settlement agreement in a series of cases involving Heat superstar guard Dwyane Wade’s business deals.

Miami-Dade Circuit Court Judge Peter Adrien announced Tuesday that a settlement had been reached in all the cases involving Wade and plaintiffs and former restaurant partners Mark Rodberg and Lauren Hollander.

The settlement was announced during the trail accusing Wade of breaching his contract to a chain of D. Wade Sports Grill restaurants. Wade was accused of failing to meet his marketing obligations to the restaurants, two of which opened, but closed within months in 2008.

Tyreke Evans caught driving over 100 mph

Sacramento Kings guard Tyreke Evans was briefly detained for reckless driving Monday evening after California Highway Patrol officers said they clocked the NBA Rookie of the Year at more than 100 mph on Interstate 80.

Officers drew guns and ordered Evans and his passenger out of Evans’ 2010 black Mercedes-Benz S550, said Lizz Dutton, CHP spokeswoman. Evans’ windows were tinted black and officers could not see inside the vehicle, so they performed a felony stop with guns drawn, she said.

Evans’ handcuffs were removed once officers determined there was no threat, Dutton said. It is illegal to tint the windshield and driver’s and passenger’s side windows, according to the CHP.

Evans, 20, was cited for reckless driving.
