ng them to become free agents. C from mary123's blog

TSNs Jack Armstrong offers his thoughts on Doc Rivers, the Raptors making the playoffs, Andre Iguodala, Canadians in the NBA Draft and Raptors head coach Dwane Casey. Doudoune Homme Canada Goose Solde . 1. DOC RIVERS (Clippers): Great move for the Clips.  Gives them a terrific shot at retaining Chris Paul and they get a top-notch coach who will handle the pressure of a big market like L.A. quite easily. The Celtics get a first round pick in 2015, and more importantly begin the process of dismantling their team to acquire assets for a rebuild/restructure. It will be interesting to see how things are handled right now with Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce & Rajon Rondo as well as the hiring of a new coach.  GM Danny Ainge is a bold/progressive thinker and will try to be active if/when possible. Right move for both teams. 2. TORONTO RAPTORS - PLAYOFFS?: Think about it for a second. Miami, Indiana, Chicago, Brooklyn and New York - Put those five in the Top 5 in whatever order youd like for next season.  After that, its a crap shoot for the bottom three spots of the Eastern Conference playoffs. Milwaukee, Atlanta and Boston (the other three playoff teams from this past season) are all going to have a different and possibly weaker look next season. The six, seven and eight spots are up for grabs. Im as curious as all of you what the Raps decide to do in the coming months with their team building plan. Do they try to develop a winning/playoff environment during the 2013-14 season or go the developmental route and try to acquire assets for down the line? Your guess is as good as mine. This Thursday nights NBA Draft will be our first look at what the direction will be. 3. ANDRE IGUODALA (Nuggets): Opting out of his contract and will be a free agent.  The trade to Denver was a great opportunity to showcase his game in an up tempo style that suited his game.  Hes a versatile athlete who plays both ways well and hard for you. Hes got lots of fans round the league and hes proven to be a valuable member of both the 76ers and the Nuggets and has the Olympics experience under his belt. Hes polished and hell be a target for teams with cap space if he keeps his salary/term demands at a fair/reasonable level. 4. CANADIANS IN THE NBA DRAFT (Anthony Bennett-UNLV / Kelly Olynyk-Gonzaga / Myck Kabongo-Texas):  If you get a chance, check out Mondays USA Today. Theres a neat article on the growth of basketball in Canada. Well likely see three more Canadians drafted on Thursday night. Bennett and Olynyk are first rounders and Kabongo is all over the board in the 2nd round, depending on who you talk with. Im excited to see how it unfolds and more importantly for the future of Canadian hoops.  The best is yet to come! 5. DWANE CASEY (Toronto Raptors): Announced last week that hell be back as the head coach. Beyond staff decisions, player development and putting together the roster with GM Masai Ujiri, a huge component of improving the team in 2013-14 will be how they perform/execute in the fourth quarter of games. Situational basketball performance is the make/break aspect of teams and coaches. Im sure Casey and his new staff will take significant time between now and the start of evaluating each and every fourth quarter this past season where the Raptors let a lead slip away that resulted in a loss. Way too many times this took place and it will be the defining judgment piece for this upcoming season. How you perform under the pressure of the fourth quarter spotlight in the NBA is usually the make/break aspect of a team, season and coaching staff. Control to the best of your ability what you can control and move those chess pieces in an appropriate/timely manner and the narrative of a season becomes more fun to watch. Canada Goose Manteau Femme .

Siddikur, whose previous win on the circuit came in Brunei three years ago, finished his bogey-free round with a birdie on the 18th for a total of 17-under 199.

Numbers Game examines the deal that sees Michael Del Zotto and Kevin Klein switch places. The Predators Get: D Michael Del Zotto.CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers waived former second-round draft pick Jimmy Clausen on Saturday, a move that leaves them with two quarterbacks entering the season. NFL teams had to trim rosters to the regular-season limit of 53 players by Saturday. Clausen was waived/injured. He started 10 games as a rookie in 2010 and threw for 1,558 yards with three touchdowns and nine interceptions in a 2-14 season. The Panthers drafted Cam Newton the following April. Derek Anderson is Newtons backup. Carolina also released veteran cornerback Drayton Florence, whod been working as a starter most of preseason, offensive tackle Patrick Brown and linebacker Jason Williams. Along with Clausen, the Panthers waived three other players drafted by former general manager Marty Hurney: wide receiver David Gettis, defensive tackle Sione Fua and safety D.J. Campbell. Among the others waived Saturday were running back Tauren Poole, wide receivers Brenton Bersin, Taulib Ikharo and James Shaw, tight ends Dominique Curry and Zach Pianalto, offensive linemen Garrett Chisolm, Hayworth Hicks, and Tori Mobley, defensive linemen Casey Walker and Craig Roh, linebackers Doug Hogue and Ben Jacobs, and safeties Anderson Russell and Robert Lester. Like Clausen, Gettis, Campbell and Russell would revert back to the teams injured reserve if they clear waiverrs. Doudoune Canada Goose Homme Pas Cher. Its possible the team could work out an injury settlement with those players allowing them to become free agents. Clausen wrote on Twitter on Saturday: "Just want to thank the Panthers Organization and the city of Charlotte for drafting me and making this home for me the last 3 years!" Clausen had a solid training camp for the Panthers, but struggled throughout the preseason games. In the preseason finale against Pittsburgh on Thursday night, he fumbled out of bounds and also tripped as he attempted to make a handoff on a play at the goal line. He finished the preseason 14 of 25 for 119 yards with no touchdown passes. He was sacked three times. After Thursday nights game, coach Ron Rivera said part of Clausens problems stemmed from playing behind the third string offensive line. "The unfortunate thing for Jimmy hes working in with the third and fourth guys and thats always tough, so you always have to take that with a grain of salt," Rivera said. "He made some good throws and threw a nice back shoulder to James Shaw. Its just, you wish you could present him with some better opportunities as far as the guys on the field with him." Florence became expendable after second-year cornerback Josh Norman proved his worth by intercepting three passes during the preseason. Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
