co-defendant tried to force Wells opt-out after the sec

  • 15 May
    The Memphis Grizzlies have landed one of the NBAs best recruiters in free agent forward Chandler Parsons.The Grizzlies agreed to terms with Parsons on a four-year maximum contract worth $94 million on Friday, two people with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press. The people spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal cannot be signed until July 7.This is a perfect fit for me and I cant wait to get started!! Parsons posted on Instagram under a picture of him posing with new Grizzlies coach David Fizdale and a No. 25 Memphis jersey. I want to thank the owner (Robert Pera) for believing in me, Coach Fiz, JB (Bickerstaff), and everyone else involved!!Parsons also met with the Portland Trail Blazers before deciding on the Grizzlies.Signing Parsons is one of the biggest free agency moves the Grizzlies have ever made, and it instantly injects some much-needed energy and versatility into a lineup that appeared to have gotten a little old and stale last year.Parsons averaged 16.7 points and 5.7 rebounds for the Dallas Mavericks last season, but has dealt with injuries that limited him to 127 games over the last two years.When healthy, he is a playmaking forward who can shoot the 3-pointer -- a much-needed attribute for the Grizzlies -- and defend multiple positions.Parsons also has earned a reputation as being one of the best in the league at persuading other free agents to join him. He helped lure Dwight Howard to Houston and got DeAndre Jordan to commit to the Mavericks last summer before he changed his mind and stayed with the Clippers.Parsons left Houston two years ago for a three-year mini-max deal with the Mavericks, a strategy orchestrated by his agent Dan Fegan as a means of maximizing his earning potential. The deal included an opt-out after the second year that would allow him to plunge back into the free agent waters when the leagues new television deal sent the salary cap skyrocketing.So even though he has been limited by injuries in recent seasons, Parsons found no shortage of suitors as the free agent market opened. Portland offered him a chance to team up with rising star Damian Lillard on a tight-knit team that has designs on challenging in the Western Conference.Going to the Grizzlies also allowed him to reunite with assistant coach Bickerstaff, who was an assistant in Houston when Parsons played there.The team also let coach Dave Joerger leave for Sacramento, replacing him with Fizdale, a longtime assistant in Miami, and the new faces will be charged with pushing the Grizzlies back into the upper half of the West. Authentic Under Armour Sneakers .com) - The Calgary Flames aim to bounce back from their first regulation home loss of the campaign on Friday night when they host a Detroit Red Wings club that they swept in three meetings a season ago. Cheap UA Curry Shoes . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. http://www.cheapunderarmour.us/ .

The Montreal Canadiens announced on Friday that the veteran forward will return to the teams line-up on Saturday night when the Habs visit the Nashville Predators. MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho rose from his chair and was about to leave the post-match news conference when he turned to his audience, threw his arms up and said: Finally, Ive lost to Arsenal.It was a tongue-in-cheek remark from Mourinho but it summed up his feelings perfectly. United conceded an 89th-minute goal by Olivier Giroud to draw 1-1 with Arsenal in the English Premier League on Saturday, leaving Mourinhos side with an increasingly familiar deflated feeling at Old Trafford this season.United has dominated its last three home games in the league -- against Stoke, Burnley and now Arsenal -- and come away with draws from all of them.We all know internally, Mourinho said, that in this moment we are the unlucky team in the Premier League.Girouds superb header, from fellow substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlains right cross, was Arsenals only attempt on target in a match that United controlled at Old Trafford. United did the same against Burnley last time it played at Old Trafford, having 37 attempts on goal but drawing 0-0.Mourinho is cutting a frustrated figure at United, which remains a work in progress in his first season in charge. But he now hasnt lost in 12 Premier League meetings with Arsenal across two spells with Chelsea and one game with United, and stretched his unbeaten run in competitive meetings with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger -- his bitter coaching rival -- to 14 matches.It was a flat and all-too-familiar performance at Old Trafford by Arsenal, who hasnt beaten United away in the league since September 2006 and fell behind to Juan Matas 68th-minute goal. The Spain playmaker met a right-wing cut-back by Ander Herrera with a low, first-time shot into the ccorner for his fourth goal of the season.ddddddddddddMourinho was heading for his most important victory since arriving at United, only for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to sprint past Marcus Rashford, reach the byline and cross for his fellow substitute Giroud to head home at the far post.We had not our usual style going forward. We were not sharp or fluent enough, said Wenger, who suggested that Arsenal might have a mental block when it plays at Old Trafford.Giroud is starting to make a serious claim for a starting place now he is fully fit following a delayed start to the season after the European Championship. The France striker, who has lost his place to Alexis Sanchez as Arsenals lone striker, scored two goals off the bench in the last away game at Sunderland.He is a bit frustrated, Wenger said. That is normal. He is ready to go again.This fixture has provided plenty of drama down the years but there was little to get the crowd excited about here, with the teams decision to field two defensive midfielders stifling much of the attacking play.United had the better of the game, but only created half chances until Matas goal.His future at United looked bleak after Mourinho was hired by United, with the Portuguese coach having sold Mata to United in January 2014 when both were at Chelsea. Mourinho then left the Spaniard distinctly unimpressed by substituting him in the Community Shield in August, soon after bringing him on as a substitute.But Mata appears to be a central figure in Mourinhos plans at United, and was given a standing ovation when he was substituted in the 85th minute.
