Vince Ellis Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EST Feb 11, 2019 Detroit Pistons vice chairman Arn Tellem got it started with a phone call. Coach Dwane Casey continued the sales job. Owner Tom Gores helped to seal the deal with a conversation in Arabic. The Pistons’ newest player, shooting guard Wayne Ellington, had options when he was deciding his next destination after receiving a buyout from the Phoenix Suns. Many teams wanted the services of the veteran 3-point sniper — teams with stronger postseason prospects than the Pistons. Those teams also had a touch more money to offer than the Pistons' veteran minimum, worth $750,000 at this juncture of the season.

Jim Morris, Rob Gillies and Paul Wiseman Associated Press Published 8:06 PM EST Dec 7, 2018 Vancouver, British Columbia – A Canadian prosecutor urged a Vancouver court to deny bail to a Chinese executive at the heart of a case that is shaking up U.S.-China relations and worrying global financial markets. Meng Wanzhou, the chief financial officer of telecommunications giant Huawei and daughter of its founder, was detained at the request of the U.S. during a layover at the Vancouver airport last Saturday – the same day that Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping of China agreed over dinner to a 90-day ceasefire in a trade dispute that threatens to disrupt global commerce. The U.S. alleges that Huawei used a Hong Kong shell company to sell equipment in Iran in violation of U.S. sanctions. It also says that Meng and Huawei misled American banks about its business dealings in Iran.
