Sports briefs: Vick tests positive for pot

Suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick must wear an electronic monitoring device at night after he tested positive for marijuana. A federal judge also said Vick is subject to random drug testing and can’t leave his house between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., when he must be electronically monitored. He will be sentenced on federal dogfighting charges Dec. 10.

Nellie almost walked

Warriors fans nearly had their worst fears come true this summer. Coach Don Nelson, embroiled in a dispute over guaranteed money in the three-year contract he signed before taking the Warriors on an unexpected journey to the playoffs last season, said he was on the verge of walking away from the exciting team he helped create. “I hate negotiations,” Nelson said. “They’re never fun, but they’re necessary, so I was ready to go,” he said. “I was hoping for two [guaranteed years], but you don’t always get what you want in life and I felt the right thing to do was accept their terms and come in. … I thought it was time for somebody to blink first, and it was me.”
