Lens question and purchase

Is the 50-135 from Pentax WR, and is it 2.8 from 50mm to 200mm? I am thinking of using this lens for basketball pictures. I will also need a lens for soccer, I am thinking of the 200mm 2.8

The SMC Pentax-DA* 50-135mm F2.8 ED is WR. It's also a constant f2.8, so it's f2.8 at any focal length. However, it doesn't go to 200mm.

It really depends on how close to the action you'll be. For my daughter's high school sports, I can get quite close. I use a sigma 100-300/4 for field sports & the Sigma 50-150/2.8 for basketball.
