Sports briefs: Wrestler, family found dead

Professional wrestler Chris Benoit, his wife and son were found dead in Fayetteville, Ga., and police suspect a murder-suicide. Benoit, 40, also known as the “Rabid Wolverine,” was scheduled to appear in Sunday’s pay-per-view event, but did not show up. A TV report said police believe Benoit killed his wife and 7-year-old son over the weekend, then himself Monday.

Is Pietrus making plans for a move?

Plenty of folks on the Warriors made money during the playoffs. Some of it was instant (like at the box office), some will come in a future contract. Forward Mickael Pietrus is one counting on the latter. The flying Frenchman is likely to be pursued by several teams once free agency opensnext month. The New York Daily News says the Toronto Raptors have set aside their mid-level exception and could start Pietrus with their nucleus of young, fastbreaking players.
