BROWNS-GORDON

NEW YORK (AP) -- A person with knowledge of the meeting tells The Associated Press that Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon will have a hearing with NFL officials in New York on Aug. 1.

Gordon was arrested this month on charges of driving while intoxicated after speeding down a street in Raleigh, North Carolina. He was released on bail.

The 23-year-old player was suspended for two games last season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. He still led the league with 1,646 yards receiving.

Gordon also reportedly failed another drug test during the offseason, which could lead to a season-long or indefinite ban. In May, he was ticketed for speeding, and a passenger in his car was cited for marijuana possession.

KELLY-HALL OF FAME

CANTON, Ohio (AP) -- Former Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, who is recovering from cancer treatments, will participate in the coin toss at the Hall of Fame game on Aug. 3.

The Hall of Famer will represent Buffalo as an honorary captain, while former linebacker Harry Carson will be the New York Giants' honorary captain when the teams face off in the first NFL preseason game.

Kelly, inducted into the hall in 2002, in May completed radiation and chemotherapy sessions to treat sinus cancer, which spread from his jaw.

Kelly's top receiver, Andre Reed, is among the seven members of the hall's class this year.

"I have always said that God willing, I will be back in Canton every summer," Kelly said. "This year especially, I am so thankful that I can be on hand..."

CAVALIERS-WIGGINS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Cavaliers have signed No. 1 overall draft pick Andrew Wiggins, a contract that prevents him from being traded for 30 days.

Wiggins has been linked to a possible blockbuster trade with Minnesota for All-Star forward Kevin Love. But any deal now involving Wiggins can't be finalized for at least 30 days.

The Cavs had been reluctant to include Wiggins in a package for Love, but the team has softened its stance and may be willing to part with the former Kansas standout.

Cleveland is interested in bringing in Love to form a "Big 3" with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. That trio would make the Cavs an overwhelming favorite in the Eastern Conference.

TOUR DE FRANCE

MAUBOURGUET, France (AP) -- Tour de France riders are heading northward on a mostly flat Stage 19 that's likely to end in a bunch sprint. The 129-mile trek gives sprinters another chance to shine after slogging it through three days in the Pyrenees (PIHR'-eh-neez).

Vincenzo Nibali of Italy won yesterday's 18th stage and remains the overall leader. He leads his closest rival by more than seven minutes.

The Tour de France comes to an end this Sunday in Paris.
