CLEVELAND - The Cavaliers tried to make it work with Dion Waiters. They couldnt wait any longer.Cleveland traded the shooting guard to Oklahoma City on Monday night and acquired guards J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert from the New York Knicks in a three-team deal.A disappointing 19-16 after losing at Philadelphia, the Cavs dealt Waiters to the Thunder in exchange for Oklahoma Citys protected 2015 first-round pick. Also, the Cavs sent reserves Lou Amundson and Alex Kirk and their 2019 second-round pick to the Knicks, who are 5-32 and desperate to clear salary-cap space.New York also received forward Lance Thomas from Oklahoma City.The Cavs have been ravaged by injuries in superstar LeBron James first season back in Cleveland and needed to shake things up. The team had discussed moving Waiters, the No. 4 overall pick, over the past two years and finally struck a deal. Both James and All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving sat out against the Sixers because of injuries.Waiters was pulled from the starting lineup in Philadelphia — his hometown — shortly before the Cavs lost to the lowly 76ers, who got their first home win. The 6-foot-4 Waiters began the season in Clevelands starting lineup, but was removed after three games. He made some defensive strides, but too often Waiters seemed mostly concerned about scoring.Dion is a talented player with potential ahead of him, Cavs general manager David Griffin said. Trades like this are always difficult to make because there are relationships and bonds built and that was the case with Dion. At the same time, were very excited to welcome Iman and J.R. to Cleveland. With their size and versatility, we think both Iman and J.R. can help our team on both ends of the court and we look forward to them joining us.The mercurial Smith, who has never been afraid to shoot, could give Clevelands bench the offensive boost first-year coach David Blatt has been looking for all season. Waiters had some success coming in as a reserve, but he never seemed comfortable in that role and the Cavs finally found him a new home.Smith is a bit of a wild card, and it will be interesting to see how he interacts with Clevelands current roster. He has known James for several years, which should ease the transition.Smith was the NBAs Sixth Man of the Year in 2013, but has battled injuries to his heel this season, along with his usual struggles with shot selection and focus off the court.Shumpert, who has been sidelined with a dislocated shoulder, is regarded as a solid perimeter defender. He had been starting before his injury, averaging 9.3 points, and will probably start for Cleveland.Griffins trade came a day after he offered support to Blatt, who is still adjusting in his first NBA season. It hasnt helped that James is out for at least another week with a strained back and knee, Irving missed Mondays game with a back issue and starting centre Anderson Varejao is done for the season after tearing his Achilles and undergoing surgery.Cleveland remains in the market for a big man and have assets remaining to pull off another deal. The Cavs are entering a tough part of their schedule with a home game on Wednesday against Houston before a give-game West Coast trip.We have to get as many players as we can get back, centre Kevin Love said after the loss in Philadelphia. Were about to hit murderers row now on the West Coast. We need to keep fighting. Were down, but not out.The Thunder, who have had their own injury issues, believe Waiters can bring immediate help. Waiters is versatile, can score and should add some firepower to Oklahoma Citys second unit.Dion Waiters is a player that weve tracked and liked since his time at Syracuse, in the NBA, and with USA Basketball, general manager Sam Presti said. Dion provides another proven scorer that positively impacts our roster and adds depth and flexibility. We have a lot of respect for his toughness and competitiveness, and believe that he is a physical playmaker who will enhance the versatility of our team.New Yorks season is as good as over, and moving Smith and Shumpert will give Knicks President Phil Jackson some future flexibility, maybe quiet the booing in Madison Square Garden and relieve some of the pressure on rookie coach Derek Fisher.The moves will allow him to trim more millions off the salary cap, which will allow them to pursue free agents this summer. The team released centre Samuel Dalembert and is expected to do the same with Amundson and Kirk.As our journey moves through this season, we will search for the type of players that fit the style we hope to exhibit for our fans, Jackson said. Our desire is to improve our ability to compete. ... These transactions improve our flexibility to the current roster and the salary cap for future seasons. Chuma Edoga Jersey . The Rays hope to stay alive for the postseason and salvage the finale of this series Sunday at Rogers Centre, where they dropped a 7-2 decision Saturday. Chris Archer lasted 2 1/3 innings in the no-decision, charged with a run and five hits, and Alex Torres suffered the loss in relief. Wesley Walker Womens Jersey . Before that, Rousey needed a total 23 minutes and 26 seconds to take care of her last eight opponents - and one of those fights lasted 10 minutes and 58 seconds. . While plenty of statistics illustrate Torontos turnaround in the second year of manager Ryan Nelsens tenure, stopping goals is not one of them. Mark Gastineau Jets Jersey . Sociedad remained in sixth place with Villarreal a point behind in seventh, both in Europa League spots and in striking distance of fourth place and the final Champions League berth. Sociedad forward Carlos Vela chipped goalkeeper Jaime Jimenez after receiving an equally exquisite lobbed pass from Ruben Pardo to set him up in the 23rd minute at Anoeta Stadium. Joe Namath Youth Jersey . Almost 40 years to the day, the two teams will meet again, this time at BC Place, to celebrate the past and try to earn important points for the present.KAMLOOPS, B.C. - Canadas Brianne Jenner is making a habit of scoring big goals against the United States.Nine months after kickstarting her countrys memorable comeback victory in the gold-medal game at the Sochi Olympics, Jenner had the only goal of the shootout Saturday as Canada defeated the U.S. 3-2 in the final of the Four Nations Cup womens hockey tournament.After an exciting 4-on-4 overtime that included power plays and plenty of chances for both teams, Jenner roofed a backhand in the second round of the shootout before Genevieve Lacasse sealed it with saves on Brianna Decker and Hilary Knight.Its always extremely intense, said Jenner. We take every game against them really seriously. Theyre our rivals and we dont want to drop a game to them. To see it go to shootout doesnt surprise me.The game marked the first final between the two squads since Canadas dramatic 3-2 come-from-behind overtime victory at the Games in February, and came on the heels of another 3-2 win in round-robin play on Wednesday.I guess its becoming a typical Canada-U.S. game in womens hockey — just a real exciting game, said Canadian head coach Doug Derraugh. A real tough, hard-fought game. Back and forth, both teams had great chances. What more can you ask for?The players were phenomenal. It was a real energetic, passionate group.Jennifer Wakefield scored twice in regulation for Canada, while Lacasse stopped 33 shots through 80 minutes of action.Knight and Decker replied for the U.S., which got 26 saves from Molly Schaus.What a hell of a game. What an awesome thing for womens hockey, said U.S. head coach Ken Klee. It was a fantastic hockey game. Both teams played well, both teams had chances, both teams moved. It was just an awesome hockey game.Theres some disappointment. Losings no fun and were not satisfied with it but we played our hearts out. At the end if you play your hearts out you have nothing to hang your head about.Canada has now won the Four Nations Cup a total of 14 times — including last years event in Lake Placid, N.Y. — while the U.S. owns the other five titles.Im really proud of the group and what we accomplished here. This was our goal, said Canadian captain Haley Irwin. We got better each game and I think theres a lot we can take from this.Its a bounce here, a bounce there and you just have to make sure youre leaving everything out there.The two giants of the womens game brought vastly different rosters to Kamloops than the ones that took to the ice in Russia for the Olympics as both programs look to develop younger players with an eye towards the 2015 womens world hockey championship and beyond. Hayley Wickenheiser, Jayna Hefford, Caroline Ouellette and Gillian Apps were among the veterans that didnt take part in the tournament for the Canadians, while 11 Olympians stayed home for the American team.But the new faces didnt lessen the importance or intensity of the final at the sold out Interior Savings Centre.Tied 2-2 after two periods, the U.S. came close to taking the lead three minutes into the third when captain Alex Carpenter fired a shot off the post behind Lacasse that stayed out.Canada looked to have grabbbed a 3-2 edge of its own at 9:07 when Natalie Spooner buried a rebound, but the play had already been whistled dead on a delayed penalty.dddddddddddd.Canadas Bailey Bram then had other great chance with under two minutes to go off a scramble in front as her shot from the side of the net slid through Schaus and just wide of the opposite post.The hosts then had another opportunity when Irwin was hauled down by Megan Bozek with 25 seconds left in regulation, but they were unable to capitalize in the dying seconds of regulation or early in the extra period.Down 1-0 after the first, the Americans tied the game just 50 seconds into the second when Decker moved down the right side and fired a shot that snuck inside Lacasses post for her second goal of the tournament.Every time we play the Canadians its going to be a one-goal differential, said Decker. It didnt go in our favour tonight (but) were learning from it.Coach just said theres no such thing as moral victories, but its a learning experience.Knight then gave the U.S. its first lead at 9:48 on a breakaway with her third goal at tournament after jumping on a bad turnover by Jocelyne Larocque.Canada was awarded a penalty shot with just over four minutes left in the second when Jillian Saulnier was brought down on a short-handed breakaway, but she lost control of the puck at the critical moment of her showdown with Schaus and didnt even get an effort on target.Wakefield finally got the goal Canada desperately craved when she snapped home her second of the night and third overall after taking a pass from Spooner from the corner with 2:10 left in the period to send the teams to the locker-rooms tied 2-2 after 40 minutes.Canada opened the scoring at 15:46 of a physical and fast-paced first period on the power play when Tara Watchorn blasted a high one-timer from the point that Wakefield tipped past Schaus.The U.S. players and Klee protested that the goal should have been disallowed because Wakefields stick was above the crossbar — even pointing at the big screen above the ice surface — but the call on the ice stood. There is no video review at the tournament.We build it up to be such a rivalry. Its two great teams here, said a dejected Carpenter. We look forward to getting better every day, so every time we step out there against the best in the world its amazing.In the third-place game earlier Saturday, Sweden scored with less than four minutes to go in regulation against Finland before winning 2-1 in overtime.Jenni Asserholt scored exactly nine minutes into overtime for Sweden after Emma Nordin tied the game with 3:33 left in the third period. The goals were the first two of the tournament for the Swedes, who got 27 saves from Kim Martin Hasson. Michelle Karvinen scored in the second and Eveliina Suonpaa made 14 stops for Finland, which didnt allow a shot against in the first period.Notes: Jamie Lee Rattray, who missed Canadas game against Finland on Friday, was back in the lineup against the U.S. ... The womens world hockey championship is set for March 28 to April 4 in Malmo, Sweden. ... Saturdays attendance for the gold-medal game was 5,816. ' ' '
