TRADES Knicks acquire: Tyson Chandler (4 years, $58-million)Mavericks acquire: Andy Rautins, trade exception While Chandler has the Championship bonafides that his new All-Star teammates lack, he also has a tremendously fragile body and it remains to be seen how much of a difference maker he can be outside of Dallas. Devon Travis Jersey . The Mavs did give up 3.8 fewer points per 100 possessions when he was on the court according to 82games.com and considering New York ranked 21st in Defensive Efficiency last season you can begin to understand why theyd take a chance on his services. Dallas, meanwhile, gets a massive trade exception they can attempt to parlay into a replacement for Chandler (theyre reportedly pursuing Sacramento free agent Sam Dalembert). FREE AGENT SIGNINGS Magic re-sign: Jason Richardson (4 years, $25-million) A somewhat stunning move since Richardsons PER dropped from 19.1 down to 13.2 after being traded from Phoenix to Orlando last season. Even more stunning since Dwight Howard appears to be on his way out and one would have assumed the team would be entering a rebuilding phase as a result. Still, its not hard to see why Richardson took the money when most teams wanted to force him into a midlevel deal. Celtics re-sign: Jeff Green (1 year, $9-million) That deal is worth $18-million after the luxury tax hit, which is an insane amount for a backup small forward. Despite the fact that Greens impact was much smaller with Boston than it was with Oklahoma City last year, his per-minute stats were basically unchanged. Unless Boston can find him a bigger role, however, this deal makes no sense at that price. Mavericks acquire: Vince Carter (1 year, minimum salary) Carter will slide into DeShawn Stevensons old minutes without offering nearly the defensive abilities but might offer more on offense (though DeShawn shot better from three last season). Knicks acquire: Mike Bibby (1 year, minimum salary) Bibbys career is winding down but hes still getting cheap deals from upper-echelon teams looking for his veteran leadership. The Knicks lack experience on the perimeter after amnestying Chauncey Billups, so this is a cheap way to inject some this season. Heat re-sign: Mario Chalmers (3 years, $12-million), James Jones (3 years, $4.5-million) Chalmers never capitalized on the potential many saw for him, losing starting spots to guys like Carlos Arroyo and Mike Bibby. Jones is a stellar corner sniper whos minutes are uncertain with arrival of Shane Battier. Hawks acquire: Vladimir Radmanovic (1 year, minimum salary) A long-range shooting combo forward that is finally being paid in line with his production and reliability. Jazz re-sign: Earl Watson (2 years, minimum salary) Watson makes a lot more sense for the team this year since its now loaded with a young core in need of veteran leadership. Raptors acquire: Aaron Gray, Anthony Carter, Rasual Butler (1 year, minimum salary) Gray is a solid depth big with more left in the tank than Magloire. Carter is a tremendous locker room presence and total "coachs player". Butler, meanwhile, has seen his game fall of a cliff and will see more burn in practice than in games. Thunder re-sign: Daequan Cook (2 years, $7.5-million) Long-range sniper is an ideal inexpensive fit for a team with the 19th best three-point shooting percentage last season (.347). Mavericks acquire: Brandan Wright (2 years, $2-million) Another team gets to pretend that Wright is primed for a breakout season, and that pretense is all he really offers to an NBA club anymore. Roger Clemens Blue Jays Jersey . The 29-year-old scored once and assisted on another as Colorado edged the host Calgary Flames 3-2 on Friday. Aaron Sanchez Jersey.com) - The Vancouver Canucks hope an upcoming stretch of home games will be enough to get the club into the postseason.SEATTLE -- Learning that former Padres Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn had died completely changed Chris Youngs outlook on pitching against his former team. "I think any fun about pitching against them disappeared this morning with the news of Tony passing," the Mariners right-hander said after Seattles 5-1 win over San Diego on Monday night. "My condolences go out to his family, the Padres organization, the city of San Diego. He meant a lot to everyone there and Im grateful I had the opportunity to work with him and get to know him." The loss capped a sombre day for the Padres organization. Gwynn, 54, died Monday morning of oral cancer, a disease he attributed to years of chewing tobacco. "Even though were away from San Diego I think the Mariners did a good job of putting Tony out there," Padres manager Bud Black said. Kyle Seager hit a three-run homer in the first inning, Brad Miller added a solo shot, and Young threw six shutout innings against his former team. San Diego was on the verge of being shut out by Young (6-4) and a pair of relievers until Carlos Quentin hit a solo homer leading off the ninth. But Gwynn was on everyones mind at Safeco Field. Seattle honoured Gwynn with a video tribute and moment of silence before the game and put a 19 on the dirt in the hole between the shortstop and third baseman. Gwynn called that the "5.5 hole" and many of his 3,141 hits went through it. San Diego added black armbands to its uniform in honour of Gwynn, and his No. 19 jersey hung in the Padres dugout. His jersey also was scattered among fans in attendance. "He is the city of San Diego. You talk Padres baseball, Tony Gwynn is everything there," Young said. Seagers homer came on a 3-0 pitch from San Diego starter Tyson Ross (6-6). Coming off a 4-for-4 performance on Sunday, Seager was given the green light and hit his 10th homer of the season. Miller followed with a ssolo homer an inning later. Joe Carter Jersey. . Robinson Cano added an RBI double as Seattle scored all five runs in the first two innings. Seager leads Seattle in home runs and has seven hits in his last 10 at-bats with six RBIs. James Jones also stole three bases and scored twice for Seattle. "Its a good feeling that the skipper has confidence in you, thats always good," Seager said. "In that situation I had seen a couple of pitches ... when you get the opportunity you have to make sure you capitalize and get a ball in the air. Young was once an All-Star for the Padres and has become a valuable acquisition since joining Seattle at the end of spring training. After losing his last two starts, Young gave up two hits in the first inning and then cruised. He retired 16 of the final 19 batters he faced, giving up a pair of singles and issuing one walk. He matched his season high with six strikeouts. Joe Beimel, who gave up the final home run in Gwynns career, pitched one inning of relief for Seattle. Tom Wilhelmsen then got the final six outs, but couldnt complete the shutout giving up Quentins third homer of the season. Ross had allowed only one homer in his previous six starts, but struggled all night. He walked a career-high seven and at least one in every inning. Ross pitched into the sixth inning and helped save the Padres bullpen. "My command wasnt very sharp tonight," Ross said. "I kind of grinded through some innings there and overall just wasnt in the strike zone early and often enough." NOTES: Young has now faced all 30 teams in the majors. ... Seattle hopes to send injured 1B Justin Smoak (quad) out on a rehab assignment Wednesday. Corey Hart (hamstring) and Michael Saunders (shoulder) could join Smoak on rehab assignments by the end of the week. ... In 11 career games against Seattle, Gwynn hit .261 (12 for 46) with three doubles and four RBIs. Cheap JerseysWholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
