    CLEVELAND -- J. Reggie Miller Jersey .R. Smith can being launching away for the Cavaliers.After sitting out most of training camp, the free agent shooting guard re-signed Saturday with the defending NBA champions, who now have all their starting pieces in place to begin defending their title.Smith made a franchise record 204 3-pointers last season and was a major contributor during the Cavs run to the first championship by a Cleveland team since 1964. His agents were in a stalemate with the Cavs for weeks, unable to come to terms on a deal to keep him in Cleveland.But the sides were able to come to terms Friday on a four-year, $57 million contract, a person with direct knowledge of the negotiations told the Associated Press on Friday night. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the teams policy is not to divulge contract terms.Smiths deal guarantees him more than $45 million in the first three years of the deal, the $15 million per season he was looking for when negotiations opened this summer. If he stays four seasons, he will get $57 million.Bringing J.R. back as part of our core group was a priority for us, Cavs general manager David Griffin said. Hes a special part of this family and we are very pleased to have reached an agreement that we all can feel good about. We know he cant wait to get back on the court with his brothers and we are certain that everyone in this organization and city feels the same way.Smith is expected to practice Sunday and he could play in the preseason finale Tuesday night in Columbus against Washington. The Cavs open the regular season on Oct. 25 against New York.The 31-year-old Smith has become not only a valuable player, but one of the most popular among Clevelands fan base. The tattooed-adorned Smith, nicknamed Swish by his teammates and fans, was a huge hit when he rode shirtless in the teams championship parade last June. Smith has also been a regular at Indians games in the past month.He averaged 12.4 points and shot 40 percent on 3-pointers in 77 games regular-season games. At 6-foot-6, he was also one of the teams best defenders, able to handle smaller guards on the perimeter.When the Cavs came back to beat Golden State 3-1 in the NBA Finals, Smith made two critical 3-pointers in the opening minutes of the second half in Game 7 to spark Clevelands rally. Lance Stephenson Jersey .Y. - Jerome Samson scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the St. Bojan Bogdanovic Jersey . 10 Texas A&Ms offence dominated as usual against SMU. . What general manager Dave Nonis called "short and productive" negotiations ended with Kessel signing a US$64-million, eight-year contract on Tuesday. BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil -- Memories of the biggest humiliation in Brazilian football and the return of Lionel Messi to Argentina were not enough to stop the five-time World Cup champions from beating their archrivals Thursday in South American qualifying for the World Cup.The Brazilians won at Mineirao stadium, and they won comfortably -- 3-0. There were no Brazilians in tears this time, unlike at the World Cup in 2014.The victory over Argentina extended Brazils successful streak under new coach Tite to five matches, giving the qualification leaders 24 points from 11 matches. Argentina has 16.Argentina coach Edgardo Bauza finds himself in an even tougher position after the lackluster performance in Brazil. His team is remained in sixth place, outside the continents four automatic spots at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.Copa America champion Chile held third-place Colombia to a 0-0 draw away, despite the absence of Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez due to injury.Second-place Uruguay beat an Ecuador side filled with reserves by only 2-1 in Montevideo. The Uruguayans have 23 points, just one behind Brazil.Elsewhere, Peru producing a shocking 4-1 win at Paraguay and is now back in the race for a place in Russia 2018. The Peruvians remain in eight spot with 14 points, one behind seventh-place Paraguay.In a match between the two worst teams in South American qualifiers, Venezuela trashed Bolivia 5-0 at home. Venezuela now is ninth place with 5 points, one ahead of Bolivia.----BRAZIL 3, ARGENTINA 0The chants of the Brazilian crowd at the Mineirao stadium showed that most Brazilians fans prefer to forget the 7-1 defeat against Germany in the same venue during the 2014 World Cup, and instead savor this victory over Argentina.The champions are back! the crowd chanted. Messi doesnt have a World Cup, the one that does is Vampeta!Brazil was so dominant it could have won by a bigger margin, but settled for a 3-0 result with goals from Philippe Coutinho (26), Neymar (46) and Paulinho (58).It could have been a different story if the referee had given a penalty to Argentina when the game was 0-0 and Neymar touched the ball with his hand in the box.The most impressive of the three goals was the opener from Liverpool midfielder Coutinho from the edge of the box. Myles Turner Jersey. Coach Tite said that the impressive result comes after a sleepless night for him. The sleeping problem wasnt because of the memories of Brazils 7-1 loss to Germany, but because of his days at Atletico Mineiro in 2007. The club was relegated to Brazils second division with him in charge.I know that I didnt do a nice job then. I still think a lot about that, he said.Messi and his Barcelona teammate Javier Mascherano, who came to Brazil in Neymars jet, were below par during the whole game.Messi likes to float on the back of the defensive midfielder, but we didnt let him play. We have a lot of merit not only in offense, but also defending, Brazil midfielder Renato Augusto said.Argentina, the 2014 World Cup finalists, remain under heavy pressure in qualifying, with its next match against Colombia. Messi used an expletive to define his teams current situation, while coach Bauza defined the defeat in Brazil as the worst in his career.We have to change, an upset Messi said.Because of the high ticket prices only 53,000 of the 62,000 seats were taken at the stadium in Belo Horizonte, located 350 kilometers (220 miles) north of Rio de Janeiro.---URUGUAY 2, ECUADOR 1Uruguay struggled and Luis Suarez wasnt anywhere near his best, but coach Oscar Tabarez lineup managed to hold off Ecuador 2-1 at home. Sebastian Coates (12) and Diego Rolan (45) gave Uruguay a 2-0 lead before Felipe Caicedo reduced the margin for Ecuador in the 46th.The win should give Uruguayan players some ground in their dispute over image rights. This week they wore shirts without sponsor names and prohibited banners with sponsors in their press conferences.Uruguay will next play Chile, and fourth-place Ecuador will face Venezuela.-----COLOMBIA 0, CHILE 0In the return of Falcao Garcia and in the absence of Sanchez, neither Colombia nor Chile managed to score in a quiet match in Barranquilla. Injury-prone Garcia entered in the second half, but didnt have any chances to score.Colombia, in third spot with 18 points, travels to Argentina. Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale College JerseysCheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Baseball Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Custom Jerseys China Cheap Basketball Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys ' ' '
