BUFFALO, N. cheap nike free rn .Y. -- Add New York City developer Howard Milstein to a growing list of candidates interested in purchasing the Buffalo Bills. Two people familiar with discussions confirmed Milsteins interest as a prospective owner and keeping the franchise in western New York. The people spoke to The Associated Press on Thursday on the condition of anonymity because Milstein hasnt publicly revealed his intentions. Citing an unnamed person, Buffalos WGRZ-TV first named Milstein as an ownership candidate earlier in the day. The Bills, last valued at $870 million, will be put on the market following the death of owner Ralph Wilson in March. The sale process wont begin until Wilsons estate hires an investment banking firm to put an updated value on the franchise and oversee negotiations. New York City developer Donald Trump and Bills Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly have already expressed interest in buying the team. The family of Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs hasnt ruled out becoming involved in an ownership group. And New Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi has been linked to -- but has no formal ties -- with Toronto-based developer Larry Tanenbaum, who is interested in purchasing an NFL franchise and moving it to Toronto. Milstein has previous sports ownership ties to the NHLs New York Islanders and made a failed bid to purchase the NFLs Washington Redskins. He also has connections to the Buffalo region and Gov. Andrew Cuomo. He currently serves as chairman of the New York State Thruway Authority. And Milstein controls an undeveloped 142-acre plot of land in downtown Niagara Falls that has been mentioned as a potential site for a new Bills stadium. Milstein would face obstacles in purchasing the Bills because of a spotty history in previous ownership bids. Milstein, his brother and Edward Milstein and Steven Gluckstern co-owned the Islanders from 1998-2000 before selling the team to Charles Wang. The Milstein/Gluckstern ownership tenure was filled with controversy over the conditions of the Islanders home, Nassau Coliseum. And the owners alienated the fan base by threatening to move the Islanders and openly discussing having the team play some home games in other arenas. In 1999, Milstein withdrew a bid to purchase the Redskins after failing to get support from a majority of NFL owners. Some owners said he was using too much borrowed money to finance the deal, while others worried that he would be a maverick owner because of his contentious stewardship of the Islanders. The Redskins were eventually sold to Milsteins junior partner Dan Snyder. Milstein filed and lost a $20 million arbitration grievance accusing Snyder of breaching their joint ownership agreement. Wilsons widow, Mary Wilson, has taken over as the Bills controlling owner until the franchise is sold. There is no shortage of other potential candidates. Erie County deputy executive Richard Tobe has said hes been approached by as many as 10 groups interested in the Bills. The Bills are essentially locked into playing at Ralph Wilson Stadium through the 2019 season because of a strict non-relocation clause included in a 10-year lease agreement reached with the state and county in December 2012. The Bills would incur a $400 million penalty by even broaching the prospect of moving during the leases term. There is a one-time exception that would allow the Bills to break the lease for just under $28.4 million in 2020. "They cant even plan to break this lease without being in breach," said Tobe, who represented the county in negotiations. Tobe added the lease essentially prevents the Bills estate from selling the team to any group considering relocating the team before 2023. nike free womens for sale . A steady downpour and low temperatures were predicted for much of the night. No makeup date was immediately announced, although it was determined that the game will not be part of a doubleheader on Wednesday. wholesale nike free shoes . Each day, TSN.ca provides the latest rumours, reports and speculation from around the NHL beat. Defensive Depth TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun is reporting the Toronto Maple Leafs have considerable interest in unrestricted free-agent defenceman Dan Boyle.TORONTO -- Rudy Gay and the Toronto Raptors just didnt work out, according to team general manager Masai Ujiri. Ujiri said he didnt have a problem with Gays talent level or attitude. But he said that the Raptors were lacking in chemistry, and changes had to come. So Ujiri pulled off his second major trade since joining the Raptors in the off-season, sending Gay and his sizable contract to the Sacramento Kings. "Phenomenal talented player, it just wasnt working," Ujiri said at a press conference Monday. Ujiri said there were issues with spacing on the floor, and also acknowledged the suggestions that Gay and guard DeMar DeRozan did many of the same things on the court. The seven-player deal also sees centre Aaron Gray and forward Quincy Acy head to the Kings. The Raptors receive guards John Salmons and Greivis Vasquez, forward Patrick Patterson and centre Chuck Hayes in return. For his part, Gay was looking forward to a fresh start with the Kings. "Excited to say the least," Gay told reporters in Sacramento before the Kings hosted the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night. "I have a couple guys with me that came with me. Its a new beginning. Ive been saying it all day. They have a lot of young pieces and Im glad to be a part of it." Gay averaged 19.4 points per game, 7.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists for the Raptors this season. The move will free up significant cap space for the Raptors. The six-foot-eight, 230-pound Gay was the Raptors highest paid player with a contract that pays him US$17.8 million this season with a $19.3-million player option for next season. The team also announced Monday that it has waived back-up point guard D.J. Augustin. A first-round pick of the Houston Rockets in 2006, Gay came to Toronto from Memphis on January 30 in a three-team deal that sent Ed Davis to the Grizzlies and Jose Calderon to Detroit. Gay posted averages of 19.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 35.0 minutes in 51 contests (50 starts) with Toronto. Gay scored 20 or more points 27 times for the Raptors, with four games of 30 or more points. He was ranked second on the Raptors in scoring (19.5) and rebounds (7.4) this season. While Gay often put up big scoring numbers, it often took him a lot of shots to do it. This season has been particularly troubling as Gay has a 38.8 per cent field goal percentage, well off his career average of 44.7 per cent. "To be fair on Rudy, he wasnt having the normal shooting years that hes had," Ujiri said. "He was going through a tough stretch I think. "That wasnt necessarily the case on what made our decision. I think it was more of just chemistry. Everyone could see there wasnt much sync there." Ujiri has wasted no time putting his stamp on this team. black nike free shoes. Just 19 games into the 2013-14 season, the team is already looking vastly different to the squad that ended the last campaign. One of Ujiris first moves as GM was to trade out-of-favour forward-centre Andrea Bargnani -- once considered the future of the franchise -- to the New York Knicks. Like Gay, Bargnani was considered difficult to move because his contributions did not match his hefty contract. Others gone after last season include Alan Anderson, John Lucas III, Linas Kleiza and Sebastian Telfair. The other players Sacramento gets in the deal are role players off the bench. Acy, at 6-7, 225-pounds, is averaging 2.7 points and 2.1 rebounds off the bench. The 23-year-old is making just $788,872 with one year left on his contract after being drafted 37th overall by the Raptors in 2012. Gray, a seven-foot, 270-pound 29-year-old bench player, is averaging 1.3 points and two assists. Hes in the last year of a contract that pays him $2.6 million. He scored a career-high 22 points with the Raptors on January 28 versus Golden State. The player who should make the biggest impact on the Raptors coming the other way is likely Vasquez. The six-foot-six, 211-pound guard is known as a decent ball distributor, which should help a team ranked dead last in the league in assists. Vasquez has averaged 9.8 points, 1.9 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 25.8 minutes in 18 games with the Kings this season. Vasquez played with Memphis and New Orleans prior to joining the Kings. In 232 career games (123 starts), he has averaged 9.0 points, 5.6 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 24.6 minutes. "Hes a tough kid, great basketball IQ," Ujiri said. "Hell give us something, and were happy to bring him in as a piece and see what he can bring to this organization." The native of Caracas, Venezuela, brings a cap hit of $2.1 million. His contract expires at the end of the season. Salmons, 33, is a 12-year NBA veteran who has serviceable career averages of 9.8 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists, though that drops to 5.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists so far this season. He may be best known in Toronto for entering a verbal agreement to play here in 2006, before backing out and joining Sacramento instead. "I didnt really feel (Toronto) was where God was leading me," Salmons said at the time. With a cap hit of $7.5 million to Toronto this season with $7 million more in 2014-15, the 6-7, 210-pound Salmons is the most expensive player coming from the Kings The 30-year-old Hayes, a 6-6, 250 pounder, makes $5.7 million this season and $5.9 million next season. He averages 2.1 points and 2.9 rebounds. Patterson, a 6-9, 235-pound 24-year-old, makes $3.1 million this season while averaging 6.9 points and 5.8 rebounds. 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 ' ' '
