Novak Djokovic, Josh Gordon and Luol Deng highlight the InscriberMag’s News and Notes for Sunday, July 6, 2014.

Djokovic Outlasts Federer, wins 2nd Wimbeldon Title: In what would be an instant classic, Novak Dojovic outlasted seven-time Wimbledon champion, Roger Federer to claim his second title at the All-England Country Club, 6-7(7), 6-4, 7-6 (4), 5-7, 6-4, Sunday. For Djokovic, it would be the seventh Grand Slam title for the Serbian, who also broke a streak of three consecutive losses in major finals.

Browns WR Josh Gordon Arrested For DWI: In what has become a string of off-the-field problems for the Cleveland Browns’ talented Pro Bowl wide receiver, Josh Gordon. The All-Pro would be arrested for driving while intoxicated down in Raleigh, North Carolina Saturday evening, per media reports.

Gordon, who led the NFL in receiving yards(1,646) is current facing a year-long suspension after violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy in May for marijuana use for the second time in May. Gordon, who missed the first two games of the 2013-14 season after testing positive for codeine, has had a history of drug abuse problems, stemming to his dismissal from Baylor back in 2011.

Luol Deng to Heat? In what may be a sign that the Miami Heat are preparing to move on from LeBron James, free-agent small forward, Luol Deng met with Heat president Pat Riley Saturday, per media reports.

Deng, a former Two-Time member of the NBA’s All-Defensive Team, averaged 14.3 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 40 games with the Cleveland Cavaliers, after being acquired in a trade with the Chicago Bulls for C Andrew Bynum—who would be waived shortly afterwards. Deng is also a top target for the Dallas Mavericks, Atlanta Hawks, Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers.

Reportedly seeking a deal above $10 million, Deng could be an option for the Heat, if James does decide to take his talents elsewhere.
