CLEVELAND -- LeBron James, Kevin Love and the rest of the Cleveland Cavaliers spent the last month lobbying for their friend and teammate J. Cheap Dodgers Jerseys China .R. Smith to get rewarded for his role in their championship run last season.Eleven days before they begin their title defense, Smith finally got the deal he wanted.The shooting guard announced on Friday night that he has agreed to terms with the Cavs. A person with knowledge of the contract told The Associated Press its for four years and $57 million. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the package has not been signed.We are extremely happy and proud to say we have agreed to terms to come back to the Cleveland Cavaliers, AKA the champs. AKA my brothers, Smith announced in a video posted on Uninterrupted.com.The 31-year-old Smith was a major contributor last season when the Cavs rallied in the NBA Finals to beat Golden State. He averaged 12.4 points and shot 40 percent on 3-pointers in 77 games, using his shooting and defense to play a crucial role in helping the Cavs become the first team to overcome a 3-1 deficit in the finals.He hit two big 3-pointers in Game 7 to help the Cavs come back from an eight-point deficit and deliver Cleveland its first sports championship in more than 50 years.As important, the wild child has played with a maturity and dependability since teaming up with James that simply wasnt there for much of his career. There have not been the off-court distractions in Cleveland that plagued Smith at other stops, with James calling him a model citizen earlier in the preseason.James didnt hide his eagerness to see the Cavaliers lock Smith up and give him a shooting guard who can stretch the floor and play strong defense. The superstar said two weeks ago that the Cavaliers just need to get it done.Smiths deal, which was first reported by ESPN, 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 for four seasons, he will get $57 million.Its been a long road. I appreciate everyone sticking with us through this rough patch of time, Smith said on the video. I know the holdout and everything has been long and tedious for everybody. But its extremely huge for us and were happy to be a part of the Cleveland family.The process played out similarly to Tristan Thompson, who is also represented by Klutch Sports, last year. Thompson stuck to his demands all the way until Oct. 22 before agreeing to a five-year, $82 million contract. The patient approach has become a hallmark of Klutch, led by James longtime friend Rich Paul and with the contract terms negotiated by Mark Termini.In 2014, Klutch client Eric Bledsoe went through months of negotiations with the Phoenix Suns before signing a five-year, $70 million deal in late September that was the largest for a restricted free agent that offseason.The Cavaliers were playing a preseason game in Chicago on Friday night, though James, Love, Kyrie Irving and most of the teams regulars did not make the trip. Smith will have one preseason game to get back into the swing of things, on Tuesday against Washington in Columbus, Ohio. Cleveland opens the regular season at home against the New York Knicks on Oct. 25.The contract wasnt the only big news Smith had on Friday.Oh yeah and one more surprise, Smith said.

World No.1 Jason Day surged into the lead before plummeting back down the leaderboard but he remains in the mix after the second round in his title defence at The Barclays.In the first of four US PGA Tour Playoff events Day shot a one-under-70 in round two at Bethpage Black, now tied fifth and four shots back of leader Patrick Reed.Reed put together a tidy three-under 68 to move to eight under, two clear at the top.It could have been infinitely better for Day after he surged early with five birdies in his opening seven holes, including four in a row, to join the lead.But as quick as he made his move up, he fell back down.A bogey on eight was followed by double-bogey on nine and when he added another dropped shot on 10 all his good work was undone.I had it going great and I was thinking, whats the course record and obviously it can turn pretty quick, especially if youre out of position here, Day said.The one on eight, definitely a poor shot. The tee shot on nine was poor. And then you miss anywhere in the rough on 10 theres no way of holding that green, and then youre trying to save yourself.It was a little difficult out there but I felt like I ground it out pretty good. I know Patrick is up there,, and Im currently four back, Ive just got to try to get it under par tomorrow and slowly chip away at it. Cheap Dodgers Jerseys.

Im really looking forward to the weekend. I feel like Im really close, he said.The driving hasnt been spot on but I know the reps that Ive done prior to this hopefully will catch up to my game and Ill start driving it a little bit better.The touch feels pretty good.I feel like Im rolling the ball pretty well, Ive just got to give myself the opportunities.I dont really see it going too much lower than what it is. I still think single digits (under par) is a pretty good score. 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 ' ' '
