Chris Pauls answer was brief, just like his time on the free agent market. Montravius Adams Packers Jersey . "IM IN!!!" he wrote Monday on Twitter. He will be staying with the Clippers, the longtime losers he helped turned into a division champion in just two seasons. Dwight Howard will need more time to think. Free agency opened Monday in the NBA with the focus on the pair of Los Angeles All-Stars, though Paul took himself off the market only hours after shopping season started. Agent Leon Rose confirmed Pauls return, which had been expected after the Clippers signed Doc Rivers as their new coach. The Clippers can pay the two-time Olympic gold medallist around $108 million for five years. Howard can make even more by staying with the Lakers, but that wont stop him from looking elsewhere. He met with the Houston Rockets early Monday, the Dallas Mavericks and Atlanta Hawks also are interested, and the Lakers have said repeatedly they want to keep him. The Rockets got the first crack at persuading him to leave. With Hall of Famers Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler joining its contingent, Houston pitched Howard on joining All-Star James Harden. Rockets general manager Daryl Morey wrote on Twitter that it was a great meeting with Howard and that having Olajuwon and Drexler there "made it obvious how (Howard and Harden) could be the next (great) big/wing combo." Hawks general manager Danny Ferry and new coach Mike Budenholzer were visiting Howard later Monday, trying to convince him to join his hometown team. And hell meet Tuesday with the Lakers delegation. His first -- perhaps only -- season in Los Angeles was a disappointment and he acknowledged being unhappy at times. But the Lakers want to keep the former Defensive Player of the Year, believing the extra year and about $30 million more they can give him will provide a huge advantage. Steve Nash, who like Howard had a difficult first season in Los Angeles, tweeted Monday that he was flying from New York to Los Angeles to help the Lakers make their pitch. "(Dwight Howard) were coming for you," he wrote. "Youre going to love the statue we build for you outside Staples in 20yrs!" Contracts cant be signed until July 10, after the next seasons salary cap has been set. The Hawks also were expected to meet with their unrestricted free agents, Josh Smith and Kyle Korver, on their trip to Los Angeles, a person with knowledge of the plans told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because Mondays meetings have not been officially announced. There is plenty of interest in Smith, a versatile forward, and Deron Williams announced the Nets interest in Korver by posting a picture of the sharp shooter in a Brooklyn uniform on social media. The Knicks are hoping Andrea Bargnani relocates his outside shot after agreeing to a deal with Toronto to acquire the No. 1 overall pick in the 2006 draft. The Raptors will receive Knicks reserves Steve Novak, Marcus Camby and Quentin Richardson, who will be signed-and-traded. The Knicks are also sending the Raptors a 2016 first-round pick and two second-round picks, according to a person with knowledge of the details. Bargnani averaged a career-best 21.4 points just three seasons ago, but finished with his worst scoring and shooting numbers last season since he posted career worsts of 10.2 points and 38.6 per cent shooting in 2007-08. Other top players that are available include Denvers Andre Iguodala and Philadelphias Andrew Bynum -- both part of the four-way trade that sent Howard from Orlando to Los Angeles last summer -- and Indianas David West. Sixth Man of the Year J.R. Smith of the Knicks is a free agent, as is former winner Manu Ginobili of the San Antonio Spurs, who also could lose forward Tiago Splitter. Miami is trying to hold onto Chris Andersen, which would essentially keep together the entire core of the team that beat San Antonio in seven games to win the NBA championship. Vince Biegel Packers Jersey . If ever they start actually putting pictures beside words in the dictionary, the Blue Jays left-handers mug will appear beside “Consistency. Josh Jones Womens Jersey .

Walcott is available for Saturdays home match against Southampton as Arsenal looks to extend its two-point lead at the top of the Premier League. The Gunners are currently the second highest scorers in the league but Wenger insists Walcott will add something extra to his team. Some may say the omens arent good for Jamie Whincup winning Sundays Bathurst 1000 after claiming pole position at Mount Panorama.However, few could argue Holdens Whincup is the man to beat for the Great Race after Saturdays top 10 shootout.The four-time Bathurst winner showed his class to finish 0.06 of a second ahead of Volvos Scott McLaughlin, with Fords Chaz Mostert third.But even six-time series champ Whincup has heard the rumours that pole position is a poisoned chalice on the mountain, with the last pole sitter to claim Bathurst honours being Holdens Garth Tander and Will Davison back in 2009.The one before that was in 2003 by Holdens Greg Murphy and Rick Kelly.Whincup himself couldnt do it the last time he finished qualifying on top in 2013.Theres this myth going around that you dont want to be on pole, its bad luck and you dont want to be there, said Whincup, who will partner co-driver Paul Dumbrell on Sunday.But we will try and turn the tide tomorrow.Its just nice to be starting on the front row.Whincup has not won at Bathurst since 2012.Coupled with the supposed omen of pole position, Whincup is also looking for a reversal of fortunes after his past two disastrous Bathurst campaigns.Last year he sensationally ignored team orders to pit before passing a safety car, relegating him from second to the back of the field and finish 18th.And in 2014 the Holden gun also defied a team directive and ran out oof fuel on the 161st and final lap while leading. Jamaal Williams Jersey. But Whincup is now feeling lucky after somehow avoiding slamming into The Dipper wall in his scorching shootout lap to emerge as the man to beat.He clocked two minutes, 05.426 seconds to pip McLaughlin in the last run of the shootout which decides the front of the grid.McLaughlin - who will partner David Wall - was gutted to have been denied his first Bathurst pole.It is pole position at Bathurst - it means everything, he said.I gave it my all. One day it will happen.Mostert may have not finished with top spot but he still felt like a winner.He finally completed Bathurst qualifying for the first time in his fourth Great Race campaign after a string of disasters.The worst happened last year when Mosterts Bathurst title defence was shattered - along with his leg - when he spectacularly crashed in qualifying, ruling him out for the rest of the season.During the shootout, Mostert was cheered on by rabid Ford fans between The Dipper and Forrests Elbow where he suffered last years horror accident.Its special to have that great support from the fans in my comeback from last year, said Mostert, who will partner Steve Owen.Even the marshalls up there gave me the thumbs up during the warm-up.Thats what makes this place so special. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
