The Dallas Mavericks and New York Knicks hooked up for a deal involving six players and a couple of draft picks. Damien Wilson Super Bowl Jersey . Numbers Game breaks down the deal sending Tyson Chandler back to Dallas. The Mavericks Get: C Tyson Chandler and PG Raymond Felton. Chandler, 31, returns to Dallas, where he was a critical part of their 2011 NBA Championship squad, and gives the Mavericks a more formidable presence in the paint. Chandler is not particularly durable, having missed 65 games over three seasons in New York and there are signs that his game is declining -- his .593 field goal percentage and 16.48 Player Efficiency Rating last season were his lowest since 2009-2010 and his estimated points allowed per possession was his highest since 2008-2009. Those statistical declines could be a reflection of Chandlers unimpressive supporting cast in New York, or it could be an indication of a 31-year-old centre who missed 20 games with a broken leg last season, but Chandler had more productive years in the previous two seasons with the Knicks. He was the Defensive Player of the Year in 2011-2012 and made the All-Defensive First Team in 2012-2013. The Mavericks need Chandler to stay healthy -- the only time in the past six years that he played more than 67 games in a season was his season in Dallas (2010-2011) -- and provide the same sound defensive presence for which hes been known, at least prior to 2013-2014. Chandler is entering the final year of his contract and it pays him nearly $14.6-million. Thats pretty good motivation to have a strong year, either to get an extension from the Mavs or hit the open market next summer. Felton is a 29-year-old point guard who has had ups and downs in his career, and is currently at a low point, having scored a career-low 9.7 points per game while shooting 39.5% from the field, his lowest since 2006-2007, last season. His 12.90 PER last season was the worst of his nine-year NBA career. Earlier in his career, Felton was a durable player, but hes missed 53 games over the past three seasons. Questionable conditioning has likely contributed to his increasing rate of injuries. On top of his poor performance on the court, Felton recently reached an agreement to a plea deal on a gun possession charge, so its probably best for him to get a fresh start somewhere else. Feltons not a strong defender, lacking the lateral quickness to handle other point guards, but if he gets in shape, he can be a contributor. As it stands now, the Mavericks are looking at a backcourt that includes veteran Monta Ellis and 2013 second-round pick Ricky Ledo. There are surely more moves to make, but there are minutes available, if Felton is up to the challenge. This season, Felton will earn $4.36-million on his contract, then has a player option for $4.54-million the following season; not unreasonable money if he bounces back from his down season. The Knicks Get: PG Jose Calderon, C Samuel Dalembert, PG Shane Larkin, SG Wayne Ellington and two second-round picks. Calderon, 32, didnt have a great season in Dallas. He struggled defensively, which is pretty standard, but his shooting wasnt as effective as it had been in previous years and Calderon couldnt get to the basket, earning less than one free-throw attempt per game. While Calderon did shoot a career-best 44.9% from beyond the arc, he shot 45.6% from the floor and attempted more threes (425) than twos (323) for the first time in his career. That may be a function of his role in the Mavericks offence, but it also is a reflection that Calderon wasnt getting any shots near the rim. Signed for three more years, at around $22.2-million, Calderon is a decent point guard option for the Knicks -- its not like replacing Felton is an impossible task -- but his defence is already poor and is only going to get worse as he approaches his mid-30s. If his offence is reverting to spot-up threes only, well, thats going to limit Calderons value. Since they didnt have many options, 33-year-old Dalembert started 68 games for the Mavericks last season. Hes an effective rebounder and shot blocker, who has had an above-average PER in four of the past five seasons. He has limited touches offensively, but shot a career-best 56.8% from the field last season and grabbed 6.8 rebounds with 1.2 blockes per game, while playing a little over 20 minutes a night. For all those attributes, which at least suggest that he can be useful in a reserve role, Dalembert could still be looking for a new team next season. The Knicks hold a team option, at under $3.9-million, for next season. Given what they have currently, the Knicks would have room to fit Dalembert in their rotation, but free agent options could be more appealing. The 18th pick in last years draft, 21-year-old Shane Larkin didnt play a lot as a rookie, averaging a little over 10 minutes per game in the 48 games that he played. Hes on the small side, at 5-foot-11, but has quickness and at least in college, at the University of Miami, he could shoot a bit (40.6% on threes as a sophomore). Will he be able to defend enough to play a big role in the NBA? While Larkin may not provide immediate value, he can continue to develop behind Calderon, ideally taking over as the starter at some point in the next couple seasons. 26-year-old Wayne Ellington has bounced around a bit since he was a late first-round pick by Minnesota in 2009. The Knicks will be Ellingtons fourth franchise in the past two years, and he scored a career-low 3.2 points per game as a spare part for the Mavericks last season. Ellington can shoot, 38.6% on threes for his career, but doesnt do enough otherwise to hold down a spot in the rotation. He is going into the final year of a contract that will pay him $2.5-million this season. The Knicks also get picks 34 and 51 in Thursdays draft. Over the past five years, picks in the 30-35 range have yielded an NBA rotation player 20.0% of the time, while picks from 50-60 have resulted in an NBA have provided an NBA rotation player 8.0% of the time. Its easy to see the appeal to this deal for the Mavericks, as Chandler gives them an immediate upgrade, without a long-term commitment. They have some backcourt issues to sort out but, after pushing San Antonio to seven games in the first round of the playoffs, there is some justification to believe that they can get into the title mix next season. For the Knicks, they could have a better point guard situation, both immediately and long-term and the hope is that Larkin can ultimately provide value. If not, there wont be much to gain.

Reggie Ragland Super Bowl Jersey.J. -- Travis Zajac of the New Jersey Devils took a lot of grief considering his scored the first of his career-best three goals just 12 seconds into a crucial game against the Florida Panthers. Damien Williams Super Bowl Jersey .m. on Friday. Granger was acquired from the Indiana Pacers last Thursday for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen, but never played a minute for Philadelphia. The 76ers also received a 2015 second-round draft pick in the deal.Budapest, Hungary (SportsNetwork.com) - Daniel Ricciardo from Red Bull battled changing weather conditions, benefited from a pair of safety-car periods and capitalized on superb pit strategy to win Sundays Hungarian Grand Prix. Ricciardo overtook Ferraris Fernando Alonso for the lead with three laps remaining and then beat Alonso to the finish line by 5.2 seconds for his second career win in Formula One. The 25-year-old Australian scored his maiden victory in the June 8 Canadian Grand Prix. Winning this today, it honestly feels as good as the first [in Canada], Ricciardo said. This one sank in a lot quicker. Crossing the line today, I knew what was going on a bit more. And I could enjoy it immediately rather than it being delayed. It was awesome. To have to pass guys again to win the race, as I did in Canada, makes it a lot more satisfying, knowing that we did have a bit of a fight on our hands. After starting from the 22nd position and from pit lane, Lewis Hamilton charged through the field in this 70-lap grand prix to finish third, one spot ahead of his Mercedes teammate, Nico Rosberg, the current F1 championship leader. Hamilton started from the pit lane for the first time in his F1 career after he suffered an engine fire in the early going of Saturdays qualifying at the Hungaroring. His team had to make a chassis, engine and gearbox change, which forced Hamilton to start the race from the pits. On the opening lap, Hamilton experienced a brake issue, causing him to slide off of the slippery track and into the barrier. He did not sustain any significant damage to his car during the incident. It is a great result today, Hamilton said. I was just pushing as hard as possible to get as high as I could. It was obviously damage limitation after what happened yesterday. I cant express the pain I feel when we have issues such as in the last couple of races. Its hard to swallow and difficult to come back the next day and get the right balance between not attacking too much but pushing to the limit. A heavy shower moved over this 2.722-mile (4.381-kilometer), 14-turn circuit shortly before the start of this race. The wet surface caused numerous crashes, forcing the deployment of the safety car two times. It was deployed for the first time on lap 8 when Marcus Ericsson from Caterham lost control exiting turn 3 and slammed hard into the barrier. The final safety-car period occurred on lap 23 when Force Indias Sergio Perez ran wide coming out of a corner and made heavy impact with the wall. The two periods set up various tire strategies for teams when they pitted. The strategies worked towards Ricciardo and Hamiltons favor. The weather improved and the track surface had dried for the second half of the race. Derrick Thomas Super Bowl Jersey. Hamilton trimmed Rosbergs lead from 14 points to 11. The two safety-car periods helped quite a lot, but naturally I looked fast and had the pace this weekend, so there was an opportunity for more points, Hamilton said. I would like to say a big congratulations to Daniel and Fernando. It was close at the end, and it was getting very hard to keep Nico behind, as he was catching at close to three seconds a lap. Coming back, through, shows how great this car and team is, and this result is much more satisfying than an easy win. Going into the break, Im still in the fight for the championship, which is very satisfying. Rosberg started on the pole and ran in front until the first round of pit stops during the safety-car period. The separation between race winner Ricciardo and fourth-place Rosberg was only 6.3 seconds. That was a disappointing afternoon, Rosberg said. A few things didnt work out for me and it was a very up and down race. In the beginning it was all under control. Unfortunately the safety car cost me the lead, because I just missed the pit entry and then I couldnt pit. I also had some braking issues after the safety car went in and a difficult period of time with handling this, which cost me some positions. Alonsos second-place run marked his best finish of the season. He also earned his and Ferraris second podium this year. I think it has been a tough weekend, a tough season in general, so to get a podium is always a nice surprise, lets say, Alonso said. We took a gamble. We risked today just trying to get the victory. Felipe Massa from Williams finished fifth, while Ferraris Kimi Raikkonen placed sixth. Ricciardos teammate, Sebastian Vettel, the four-time F1 world champion, finished seventh after rebounding from a spin at the halfway point. Vettel ran wide just past the entrance to pit lane and did a 360-degree slide before making slight contact with the wall. It wasnt a great race, Vettel said. I spun, which was my mistake, and before that, I was unlucky with the safety car in the first stint. The timing meant the first four cars lost positions to those running behind. Unfortunately, we were then in the wrong mode for the restart, and I lost two positions. Its good for Daniel that he won today, Im happy for him. Valtteri Bottas (Williams), Jean-Eric Verge (Toro Rosso) and Jenson Button (McLaren) completed the top-10. With 11 races completed, Rosberg, Hamilton and Riccardo are the only drivers who have won a grand prix this season. F1 takes a three-week summer vacation before it resumes its schedule on Aug. 24 with the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa- Francorchamps. ' ' '
