DeAndre Jordan is reportedly heading to Dallas.

Two people with knowledge of the deal say the Dallas Mavericks and DeAndre Jordan have agreed on a one-year contract at roughly the $24.1 million the center was set to make with the Clippers next season.

The move was also reported by Marc Stein of The New York Times and Eddie Sefko of Dallas Morning News.

The agreement comes http://www.nfljerseymex.com/ three years after Jordan agreed to join Dallas as an unrestricted free agent but changed his mind before a contract could be signed and stayed in Los Angeles.

Now that Leonard’s trade demands are known, the big question is will the Spurs attempt to make a move before next week’s NBA Draft, or make another effort to save their relationship with their star player.

National reports have already surfaced suggesting Leonard preferred destination is the Los Angeles Lakers, but league sources have told the Express-News the Philadelphia 76ers could be in play to acquire Leonard, too.

Pelinka said the Lakers focused their free agency recruitment efforts on versatile, playoff-tested talents who can score and defend, instead of looking for elite players with only one specialty. He hopes the result will be a flexible, dangerous team under coach Luke Walton — and a different look around James, whose Cleveland Cavaliers teams often looked like a cheap jerseys collection of perimeter shooters whose deficiencies were exposed by Golden State and others.

Pelinka praised Rondo as a gritty guard whose championship pedigree will fill a void on the roster. He also described Stephenson as providing an extreme toughness and an edge, comparing his skills to Dennis Rodman’s contributions to Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls, or Metta World Peace’s work with Kobe Bryant’s late-career Lakers.

The road to the NBA championship has to go through the team that won last year, and we all know the guys up north have a special group, Pelinka said. But one of the ways to attack what they have is with defensive toughness. I think we saw that in the Houston series with some of the players that Houston has.

Pelinka’s desire for flexibility extended to the payroll as well. After years of trading away draft picks and acquiring high-priced veterans in an effort to win now with Bryant, the Lakers were overextended until Pelinka and Johnson spent the past 16 months creating enough salary cap space to sign two elite free agents.

Cubs assessing needs while waiting for Darvish’s return

Cubs president Theo Epstein says the front office is still assessing its July trade needs as the team awaits the return of right-hander Yu Darvish from the disabled list.

Darvish has been out six weeks with an elbow issue and is seemingly back to square one in his rehab

Anytime you stop like that [rehabbing] and go for another opinion, you want to see some progress. We’re happy with the last few days, for sure.

Darvish, 31, was on his way to returning, but a rehab start in the minors followed by a bullpen session didn’t go well, as he felt pain in his elbow. The Cubs say an end-of-the-month return is possible, but they won’t put a timetable on it until https://www.wholesalecustomnfljerseyschina.com/ he’s throwing again.

On the position-player front, right now, there is not a lot we would want to go get, honestly, Epstein said. Not a lot of roster spots to fit guys in, and we have guys we have to sit on a given day we want to get at-bats for. It’s not like we’re actively looking to add on the position-player side.

One of those players sitting is former MVP, Kris Bryant. He’s been out close to two weeks with a sore shoulder but is feeling better after a hitting session Friday, according to Epstein. He could be activated or sent out for a rehab assignment soon.

The Cubs’ biggest current need is a left-hander for their bullpen, as former swingman Mike Montgomery is entrenched in the rotation while Brian Duensing has struggled and is on the disabled list. Former Tigers closer Justin Wilson has also been unreliable since coming over in a July trade last year.

Almost every contender is looking to add another reliever or two from each side, Epstein said. The way it looks right now isn’t necessarily the way it looks for the remainder of the season.

When I’m pairing the cutter and slider it makes it pretty hard on the hitters, Stroman said.

Stroman said he has felt strong since returning from the disabled list on June 23. The Blue Jays have won three of his four starts since he missed six weeks with right shoulder fatigue.

It was an outstanding effort, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. It doesn’t surprise me. I think he has rounded back into shape the way we’ve seen him so many times.

Stroman gave up one run and six hits with two walks in seven innings.

The Braves, who have lost six of their last seven, fell to second in the NL East after beginning the day tied with Philadelphia for the lead. The Phillies beat jerseys cheap the Mets 7-3. Atlanta held at least a share of first since May 30.

Toronto was limited to three hits through seven innings by Teheran and Jesse Biddle, and the game was tied 1-1. The Blue Jays broke out with five hits off A.J. Minter (3-2) and Shane Carle in the eighth.

Aledmys Diaz doubled in two runs before scoring on a double by Devon Travis. Kevin Pillar had a run-scoring single in the big inning, which opened with a fielding error by Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson on Yangervis Solarte’s grounder.

Linebacker Christian Kirksey says the Browns will be in the playoffs this year.

On Jan. 2, 2017, Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson guaranteed the team would be better than they were after a 1-15 season in 2016.

They were not.

The Browns became just the second team in NFL history to finish a season 0-16, and Jackson lived up to a promise he never really made by jumping into Lake Erie earlier this month.

For the most part, today, interceptions are a matter of luck and a little bit of technique, Kirkpatrick said. As far as situations where you have to get your head around, you practice that all day, everyday. So there are things like that, but for the most part you have to be born with hands.

Regardless, interceptions are a motivating force for today’s players.

I still have my goals set. Six is my goal to have in a https://www.nfljerseyforsalecheap.com/ year, Kirkpatrick said. I’ve had three twice, so you know, they’re kind of hard to get. But I’m still striving for it.

Though this was a regular season game, it had a major impact on the 2018 NFL playoffs. New England and Pittsburgh finished tied atop the AFC with identical 13-3 records, but the Pats’ dramatic win in Week cheap jerseys 15 served as the tiebreaker that gave them the No. 1 seed. That meant their playoff path started with an underwhelming Titans team — and not the Jaguars buzzsaw that lit up the Steelers for 45 points in the Divisional Round. Assuming James’ catch stands (and Brady can’t dial up his magic with 28 seconds left and two timeouts), Pittsburgh likely advances to the AFC title game — and possibly farther.

But, since this is an article about the awful impact of an unclear catch rule, it wouldn’t stand. Officials ruled the ball shifted in Benjamin’s hands as he fell to the turf, and Buffalo had to settle for a field goal. This might not have mattered that afternoon, as New England went on to score the game’s final 24 points, but the ruling ultimately cost the Bills some much-needed momentum in one of the NFL’s toughest settings: a meaningful December game in Foxborough.

Fortunately for Buffalo, its playoff drought wouldn’t be extended because of a maybe scenario in Week 16. The Bills sneaked in to the playoffs thanks to a final week rally from Andy Dalton’s Bengals, who upset the Ravens with an 11-play, 90-yard drive to knock Baltimore out of the postseason and push Buffalo to the Wild Card Round for the first time since the 1999 season.
