CHICAGO - - The Chicago Bulls have made two trades to clear salary-cap space, setting the stage for the addition of free-agent centre Pau Gasol. The Bulls sent forward Anthony Randolph, two second-round draft picks and cash considerations to Orlando for the rights to Milovan Rakovic. Randolph was acquired in a draft-night trade with Denver that gave the Bulls the rights to high-scoring Creighton forward Doug McDermott. Chicago also traded forward Greg Smith to Dallas on Monday for the rights to Tadija Dragicevic. The Bulls signed Smith in April after he was waived by Houston, but he never appeared in a game with Chicago. The pair of moves helps make room for Gasol, who announced over the weekend that he planned to join the Bulls. . The 23-year-old from Thornhill, Ont., defeated Germanys Benjamin Becker 6-3, 6-4 on Tuesday in the fourth round of the Sony Open in just 89 minutes. . After a 99-97 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night, his Celtics coaches and teammates have only positive things to say about the Toronto-born rookie. . Amaro broke the NCAA all-time record for receiving yards in a season for a tight end with 1,352 during his junior campaign, eclipsing the mark of 1,329 set by Rices James Casey in 2008. .Y. - - The Buffalo Bills have fired receivers coach Ike Hilliard. . With their coach gone, they finally played offence the way he would have wanted. Amare Stoudemire made all seven shots in the first half, Anthony passed and shot well, and the Knicks shook off the surprising departure of their coach to rout the Portland Trail Blazers 121-79 on Wednesday night, snapping a six-game losing streak.ST. LOUIS - Rodney McLeod lowered the boom, legally, with a perfectly timed, shoulder-to-shoulder hit on Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.The pass breakup on a deep sideline route sent Sanders off to be examined for concussion-like symptoms, but that wasnt the point. The St. Louis Rams hopes for a late-season rally rest on a defence thats been making its presence felt more and more.Thatll definitely go down as one of my best hits ever, McLeod said. Very great play by me, and Im glad to see Sanders is OK.Coach Jeff Fisher congratulated McLeod after the hit in the third quarter and protested an unnecessary roughness penalty then, after the game, and again the day after the Rams (4-6) won 22-7. McLeod had a number of nice hits in that game and, perhaps with an assist from the coach, none of them was costly.I think theyve already passed out all the fines and nothing came in my locker, McLeod said. When you go back and review the tape, I think you can see I levelled my shoulder and not my helmet. I think the league made a great call.The last three weeks, the Rams defence has permitted just 34 points; the Cardinals defence scored 14 points on turnovers by the Rams during that span. Theyre in the middle of the pack overall, ranked 17th, and aiming higher.Even before Sam Bradford was sidelined by a knee injury in preseason for the second straight year, the blueprint called for ball control on offence, but capitalizing on big plays on the other side of the ball. St. Louis dominated in time of possession against Denver.The Rams scheme hasnt changed appreciably from 2012 when co-ordinator Gregg Williams son, Blake, was defensive line coach. Holdovers from then had a better feel early on, and now those getting their first taste of Williams system, such as McLeod and fellow safety T.J. McDonald, outside linebacker Alec Ogletree and tackles Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers, are catchiing on.ddddddddddddhe Rams had two interceptions and two sacks against the Broncos, and the pass rush has finally gotten revved up with 13 sacks the last three games. Robert Quinn has been such a force that officials can whistle opposing tackles for holding all day.It wasnt any magic fairy dust, said middle linebacker James Laurinaitis, dueling Ogletree for the team tackles lead. We all stuck to the script and just kept practicing, and weve just gotten better results.Ogletree has an interception in two straight games and has been an all-around force in recent weeks. The second-year player said hes getting comfortable in Gregg Williams aggressive scheme.Just being able to line up and see the right things, Ogletree said. Just being able to capitalize on the opportunities when the balls in the air.Laurinaitis noted with pride, Our confidence should be high as a unit, what we can be.But in the next breath, he points out the Broncos lone touchdown came on broken coverage in the secondary.Quite frankly, Im not going to let this team become complacent, Laurinaitis said. Weve all taken turns busting things like that, when were just not in our right areas.I think we have to eliminate all of those the rest of the season.This week, theyll try to make things uncomfortable for the Chargers Philip Rivers, nursing sore ribs. San Diego (6-4) has dropped three of four.NOTES: Fisher said its probably unlikely DE Chris Long will play this weekend. Instead, the Rams intend to use all of the 21-day window before activating Long from the injured reserve-designated for return list next week at home against Oakland. Id say hed have a pretty good chance next week. ... The Rams practiced outdoors in chilly weather the last two days, with temperatures in the 30s and 40s, and Fisher makes it a point to wear shorts until Dec. 1.___AP NFL website: and Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
