A blog post on the official Rainbow Six website has lifted the lid on the new Defender, whose "expertise lies in blocking access to key locations." According to the post, "His blunt style allows him to see through smoke and mirrors, for which he has no patience." Ubisoft goes on to state that Maestro shines when he's joined by Alibi, the other new Italian defensive Operator.

Maestro's unique skill or gadget has not yet been revealed. Previous rumors had suggested he will carry bulletproof cameras, but that was later revealed to Rainbow 6 Credits  be coming to a number of Operators as part of a future update. Ubisoft is set to reveal more details about the upcoming season during the Rainbow Six Siege Pro League Finals on May 19-20.

Major League Baseball’s winter GM Meetings are wrapping up, leaving 30 general managers set to start their off-season renovations. DeMario Davis Saints Jersey . looks at the day’s hottest rumours as free agent season gets off the ground. We Need to Talk about Devon The Toronto Blue Jays made an intriguing trade late Wednesday night, shipping young centrefielder Anthony Gose to the Detroit Tigers for second base prospect Devon Travis. The National Post writes that Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos has high hopes for Travis, recently named the Tigers’ top prospect by Baseball America. “We think he can come quick,” Anthopoulos said in a conference call. “We expect him to start in Triple-A next year but we wouldn’t rule out, barring adding some other guys to the 25-man [roster], him competing for a job at second base.” The deal saw both teams dealing from a position of strength, Gose facing competition from prized prospect Dalton Pompey in centre while Travis languishing in the shadow of Ian Kinsler at second in the Tigers organization. Friends or Foes? One of the most interesting facets of the deal between the Jays and Tigers is that just hours prior they were both vying for the same prize. Hours before the Gose-Travis deal was completed, the Jays were reportedly hot on the trail of Tigers first baseman/designated hitter Victor Martinez. FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that the Jays were “the team [the Tigers] feared most in bidding for Martinez.” Rosenthal adds that Martinez wanted to stay in Detroit. The fear of the Tigers, however, suggests that the Jays may be more serious contenders for top free agents than some expect. Battery Boost The San Diego Padres appear to be ready to deal, dangling a trio of pitchers and a pair of catchers as bait. Jon Heyman of CBS reported Thursday afternoon that the club was taking offers on pitchers Ian Kennedy, Andrew Cashner and Tyson Ross and catchers Yasmani Grandal and Rene Rivera. The Padres are believed to be looking for an offensive upgrade after scoring an MLB-worst 535 runs in 2014. One and Done? The Kansas City Royals are fresh off being one of 2014’s feel-good stories. Not only did they end a 29-year playoff drought with a strong finish to the campaign, but they came just one win away from winning the World Series, despite having started the playoffs just two outs from a Wild Card loss to Oakland. But will KC be able to keep its core together? The Royals have free agents to worry about already with ace James Shields, DH Billy Butler and outfielder Nori Aoki already available on the free agent market. Complicating the matter for the Royals, according to FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi, is the cost of keeping its deadly bullpen tandem of Kelvin Herrera, Wade Davis and Greg Holland locked in. The trio could earn as much as $17.8M in 2015, which may force the Royals’ hand in terms of where it invests its already-small-market payroll. Braves New World Rosenthal also chimed in on the bidding for free agent lefty Jon Lester Thursday, wondering if anyone can outbid the two perceived favourites for his services. In a post on Fox’ Just a bit Outside, Rosenthal states that the bidding for Lester is believed to be a head to head match-up between the lefty’s former team, the Boston Red Sox, and his former general manager: ex-Sox wunderkind and current Chicago Cubs decision-maker Theo Epstein. But Rosenthal warns that pundits shouldn’t rule out the Atlanta Braves, by virtue of Lester being a Georgia boy and the Braves’ need for rotation help. He notes that the team is in the process of clearing payroll and should the bidding drag on, the Braves could be a surprise contender.

The Dallas Mavericks are bringing back Devin Harris in what could be a more prominent role for the point guard. Gerald Green Jersey . Two people familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Saturday that Harris and the Mavericks have agreed on a new contract. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the team hadnt announced the deal. The 31-year-old Harris played for Dallas on a one-year, $3 million deal last season, missing the first half of the year after off-season toe surgery. He originally had a three-year contract worth $9 million, but the deal was scuttled by the toe injury. The new deal is reportedly similar in value to last years three-year contract. The deal with Harris came two days after Dirk Nowitzki agreed to terms on a three-year, $30 million contract with a player option in the final season of the deal. The Mavericks struck both deals while still waiting for word from free agent Carmelo Anthony, who visited Dallas last week. If Anthony signs elsewhere, Dallas will be in the market for a small forward to play alongside Nowitzki. Harris was the backup to Jose Calderon last season, but the Mavericks traded Calderon to the New York Knicks when they acquired Tyson Chandler the day before the draft. Dallas got Knicks point guard Raymond Felton in the deal, but hes coming off an unproductive year that included trouble off the court. In his first season back with Dallas after starting his career there, Harris averaged 7.9 points and 4.5 assists in 40 games. But he shot a career-low 38 per cent from the field, including just 31 per cent from 3-point range. Acquired by the Mavericks as the No. 5 overall pick in a draft-night trade in 2004, Harris is the highest draft choice for Dallas since owner Mark Cuban bought the team in 2000. Harris was on the first Dallas team to reach the NBA Finals in 2006 -- a six-game loss to Miami -- before going to New Jersey in a trade that brought Jason Kidd to the Mavericks in 2008. He also played in Utah and Atlanta. Dion Waiters Jersey . Rinne had surgery on his left hip May 9 and recovered in time to start the season. He then had arthroscopic surgery on Oct. 24 because of a bacterial infection in his hip. Dwyane Wade Jersey . - Chris Davis hit a two-run double, scoring Nelson Cruz in his Orioles debut in Baltimores 9-7 win over to the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday.( - One point guard will return, while another will sit when the Minnesota Timberwolves visit American Airlines Center to take on the Dallas Mavericks. Ricky Rubio is slated to return to the Timberwolves lineup Monday after missing 42 games with a sprained ankle. The team went 6-37 in his absence. Hes seen three specialists and all of them have cleared him if things are OK come Monday, head coach Flip Saunders said on Saturday. They have OKd him to be able to play on a limited time basis. We will have to wait until Monday pretty much comes. For the Mavs, Rajon Rondo is out with a facial injury. Rondo was hurt early in the first quarter in Orlando after a collision with teammate Richard Jefferson. Jeffersons knee hit the face of Rondo, whose head then struck the floor. The Mavs defeated the Magic, 108-93, Saturday. Monta Ellis scored 25 points and handed out 13 assists to help the Mavericks defeat Orlando. After leading by as much as 27, the Mavericks edge was cut to as little as five in the fourth quarter before they pulled away again. Monta Ellis carried us again, Dallas head coach Rick Carlisle said. He was tremendous and made great defensive plays. Tyson Chandler added 20 points and nine rebounds for Dallas in its second straight win, and Dirk Nowitzki netted 11 points. Jefferson (14), Devin Harris (12) and J.J. Barea (10) rounded out the double-figure scorers for DDallas. Justise Winslow Jersey. The Mavs have a two-game California trip, starting Wednesday. Rondos availability for that trek against the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings is unknown. Minnesota fell to the red-hot Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday in Kevin Loves return to the Twin Cities. Love, who was booed every time he touched the ball, had 14 points and 17 rebounds in Clevelands 106-90 victory over the Timberwolves. After playing his first six NBA seasons for the Timberwolves, Love was dealt to Cleveland as part of a three-team deal in the offseason. Minnesota acquired Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett, the last two No. 1 overall picks in the draft. Wiggins had himself a career night in a losing cause, scoring 33 points on 14- of-25 shooting. The 19-year-old matched the franchise record for most points by a teenager. I love the big stage and playing in the spotlight, Wiggins said. Its motivation for everybody. Thaddeus Young ended with 19 points for the Timberwolves, who have lost two straight. Nikola Pekovic and Kevin Martin had 14 points apiece, with Pekovic also pulling down 12 rebounds. Zach LaVine is expected to miss Mondays game with an ankle injury. Mo Williams could return against the Mavs after missing three games with a hip problem. The Mavs won both of this seasons meetings, but are just 2-4 in their last six as the host in this series.

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- Anthony Bennett wasnt really all that interested in playing basketball. Discount Air Jordan Australia Online . Yeah, it was cool dunking on guys, and a great way to make new friends after moving from Toronto to the citys suburbs. Then, he decided to get serious about six or seven years ago. His future was calling. "I just started growing," Bennett said, flashing a smile while talking about his unique path to the NBA. "And everyone said, You should probably play basketball. So I said, All right. Ill give it a shot. Look where it got me now." Look indeed. Bennett was formally introduced Friday by the Cleveland Cavaliers, who shocked the draft by selecting the UNLV power forward with the No. 1 overall pick on Thursday night. Although he wasnt regarded by many draft experts as the best player available, Bennett was always at the top of Clevelands board. They scouted the 6-foot-7, 240-pounder extensively all season, fell in love with his game and after getting rave reviews about his character, chose him over Kentucky centre Nerlens Noel, Kansas guard Ben McLemore, Georgetown forward Otto Porter Jr. in a flawed draft. "As we did our evaluations throughout the entire year, we just kept coming back to his ability and his talent and how it fit with our guys," Cavs general manager Chris Grant said. "A lot of times, like last year, its just clear-cut. But for us, through the year, we always had him very high in our rankings and as we went back and reviewed the film and went on campus and visited everybody, we came away saying hes a great kid. Hes willing to work and do the right things and hes got a bunch of talent." From almost the moment they won the lottery until they had to call the league with their pick, the Cavs listened to multiple trade offers before taking Bennett, who averaged 16.1 points and 8.1 rebounds in his one season with the Runnin Rebels. Bennett didnt find basketball as much as the sport discovered him. After his family moved from the rough Jane and Finch area of inner Toronto to Brampton, Ontario, Bennett enjoyed playing hoops, but it wasnt his passion. "I was just playing around and just wasting time," he said. His mother, Edith, was encouraged to get him on an organized team, but as she watched her boy clumsily run up and down the floor, she never dreamed it would one day become his profession. "At first, people were saying, Oh, he cant play," she said. "But a few of the coaches stuck with him and gave him a chance. See what a chance will get you?" Bennetts arrival didnt come without some risks for the Cavs. He recently underwent shoulder surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff and has reportedly struggled with his weight while recovering. Grant, though, sees him as the next piece -- along with Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson and Dion Waiters -- to help turn around a franchise that has gone 64-166 in the three seasons since LeBron James left. "A lot of guys in this draft were out for medical reasons, but at the end of the day we just felt like this was the right guy to add with all the talent he has," Grant said. "You put him in a pick and roll with Dion or Kyrie, hes going to be pretty difficult to guard because he can shoot the ball and is athletic and can handle the ball and get to the rim." Theres a strong possibility Bennett wont even start as a rookie next season. He could wind up as a backup to fellow Canadian Tristan Thompson, who was taken by the Cavs in the first round in 2011. Like Bennett, Thompson grew up in Brampton. "I feel like me and Tristan will become best friends," Bennett said. "Hes going to be my go-to guy just because hes from Canada. Im sure there are lot more guys on that team I can go to, but just because even if Im here in Cleveland or back home in Brampton, I can talk to him anywhere I am." Some questioned why the Cavs would take another power forward with Thompson on the roster and other pressing needs like a shooter or small forward. Cavs coach Mike Brown isnt concerned about having two potential starting power forwards and is confident playing time will begin to get sorted out in training camp. "They have to go out and compete," Brown said. "They may be buddies, but once they cross that line, I think theyll get after each other. Theyll want to make themselves better, as well as the team. Its great to have depth in all areas. Anthony is definitely a guy that has added that to us. He is versatile. Hes different than the bigs we have. "He can be used in a lot of different ways." As his skills developed and his game blossomed, Bennett kept a list of players he dunked over. A dunking diary, so to speak. "I thought it was pretty fun to do," he said with laugh. "It was between me and my friends growing up in Canada. I thought, Why not? I think I gave it a year and a half. When I got to 100, I stopped." Hes already made history as the first player from his country to be taken first overall, and Bennett says theres plenty more talent north of the U.S. border. And now that the Cavs have two Canadians, is he expecting to hear "O Canada" played before games in Cleveland? "If it happens, man, Ill be happy," he said. Air Jordan From China .

Could he win the Dally M Medal? A bottle-throwing incident at Belmore and Chris Chesters impact at Wakefield also feature in this weeks Set of Six... Coaches feeling the pressureThere are tough times for Brian McDermott and Paul Anderson. Leeds won eight of their first nine Super League fixtures last year but have tasted victory just twice in 2016 and fell to a third successive defeat on Friday against Hull KR. Last seasons treble winners have been beset by injuries at the start of the 2016 season and are still without a training complex as a result of the Boxing Day floods in Kirkstall. Paul Anderson and Brian McDermott have both endured difficult starts to the season McDermott admitted those problems have hurt his team but remains confident a change of luck will allow the Rhinos to find some form.The Rhinos are now 16/1 to win this years Grand Final while the Giants are 100/1.

Basketball Hall of Famer Yao Ming sat down with ESPN-Tencent reporter Yuan Fang for an exclusive one-on-one --?conducted in Chinese and translated to English --?during which the Chinese basketball pioneer discussed life, basketball and his career in the U. Cheap Air Force 1 Shoes Wholesale .S.Yuan Fang: After the Sydney Olympics in 2000, I was 15 and in person when you arrived at the General Administration of Sports of China. The moment you and the national team showed up, I was pushed out by the huge crowd. You were the only player who spotted me and offered an autograph. A picture was taken by my mother, and Ive kept it ever since. Sixteen years have passed. Are you still the same Yao Ming?Yao Ming: Im sure some of my habits havent changed. What I did at that moment is how I am as a person, so I pulled you aside. I treated other fans the same way I did later on in life, so some of my habits have always stayed with me.Yuan Fang: So after 16 years, what have you changed the most?Yao Ming: My appearance, like you mentioned earlier. (Laughs.)Yuan Fang: What about basketball and your attitude toward life?Yao Ming: Basketball-wise, its a competitive sport, so oftentimes we focus solely on our opponents. Philosophically, I started to learn about myself from within. Once you have faced your true self, then you are really able to face the outside world and people. So essentially, you need to ease your mind first, and figure out who you are before you will know where you want to go.Yuan Fang: In this years Basketball Hall of Fame enshrinement, Dikembe Mutombo, Bill Russell, and Bill Walton will be presenting you at your speech. Did you choose them personally? Is there any unique story untold between you and these three individuals?Yao Ming: Yes, Im extremely honored to ask all three of them to present me and introduce me to the Hall of Fame. These three individuals are all famous big men among NBA history. What can I say about Bill Russell? Eleven championships, even though he just has 10 fingers, he has 11 rings. Id really wish he could spare me one. Bill Walton has been a tremendous mentor, especially when I first came to the league. And Im very close with Mutombo; we played five seasons together with the Rockets, which were more than half of my career. Im really glad that they are willing to be my presenters.Yuan Fang: Back in 2012, you had an opportunity to be inducted to the Hall of Fame as a contributor, but you kindly declined. Four years later, here you are.Yao Ming: I think its important to respect the rules. The Hall of Fame has its rules and regulations; players can only qualify after retiring for at least five years. If you want something, you have to follow the rules; we shouldnt break the rules for any reason.Yuan Fang: Now you are a Hall of Famer; youve earned all the glory and your reputation. But we all know, behind every success there is an untold story. Could you share with us, what are some of the biggest challenges and struggles during your professional career and personal life?Yao Ming: Though some moments were hard to conquer, they were really not a big deal when I look back now. And I did not overcome all of those difficult moments. Its easy to say now, but maybe I just hung in there and grinded it out. The more important thing is the lessons learned, experience and moving forward. Whats lined up for the future? And what kind of differences can I make?Yuan Fang: As a former international student, I understand how difficult could it be for a Chinese person to study/work in America. In retrospect, when you first came to the league and were experiencing culture shock, what advice can you share with us?Yao Ming: Blend in and adapt, or adopt in English. During the process, we have to understand our differences while searching for commonality. People are different, but its crucial to have commonalities. We should not focus on our differences. After all, this is not China, we shouldnt force our way of living to the American people. We chose to come to an entirely different country, therefore we should accept and respect their culture and rules.Yuan Fang: If you could go back to age 24 or 25, what would you do differently in the NBA?Yao Ming: Actually, Ive been asked that question quite often, and my answer is always no. All my success and failures made me who I am today. If I were to erase and fix my failures and mistakes, Id lose all the lessons and experience. These are all my valuable assets.Yuan Fang: Last week, Tracy McGrady wrote an article for ESPN. He said if both of you were in your prime and injury-free, you would have won a championship with that Rockets team. Do you agree?Yao Ming: We cant say what if. What I hope to see is what we could have done better, how we could have created a better outcome. I think it would be great to sit down with old friends, reminisce a little bit. But we should not immerse ourselves in it.Yuan Fang: Having your own basketball team, the Yao Ming Foundation, and running your wine company, how would you form a complete brand of yourself?Yao Ming: I think specialization is very crucial, and having specialists to be in charge. I cant be part of every little detail, but I have a trustworthy team behind me, and they can certainly get the job done.Yuan Fang: Last question,. I saw you appearing at a media event in Beijing, you shot 30-for-30 at the free throw line. Do you still play?Yao Ming: Barely.Yuan Fang: So if you were in better shape, how would you perform in todays game? Perhaps in the Chinese Basketball Association?Yao Ming: Thats too many what-ifs! Nike Air Force Ones Sale . Just not the game. Kyle Palmieri scored two straight goals in the third period to rally the Anaheim Ducks past the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 on Tuesday night. Cheap Air Force Ones For Sale . Bryzgalov stopped 25 shots on Saturday in the Oklahoma City Barons 4-1 victory over the Abbotsford Heat. The Oilers signed Bryzgalov to a one-year $2 million contract last Friday after shedding payroll by dealing defenceman Ladislav Smid to the Flames. . The formidable trio of Canadian receivers -- individually known as Chris Getzlaf, Rob Bagg and Andy Fantuz -- will share the field at Mosaic Stadium one more time on Sunday. LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Matthew Wyman may have booted Charlie Strong right out of Texas.The senior kicker for Kansas knocked through a field goal to force overtime, then drilled a 25-yarder in the extra session Saturday to send the Jayhawks to a 24-21 victory over the Longhorns -- one that just might end Strongs disappointing tenure on the 40 acres.The moment Wymans field goal went through the uprights, the Jayhawks (2-9, 1-7) poured off the sideline and into a jubilant pile with thousands of students. The win snapped a nine-game skid, a 19-game losing streak in Big 12 play and was their first over Texas since 1938.It made Strongs future bleak, but it made Kansas coach David Beatys appear just a little bit brighter.What resilient dudes those guys are, he said after his first Big 12 win. Theyve continued to work through some really, really difficult situations, and Ive said it before, I feel like we have the right kind of kids in our program. Theyve stuck it out.The Longhorns (5-6, 3-5) squandered chances down the stretch, including a fumble and failed fourth-down try in the final minutes of regulation that could have put the game away.They got the ball first in overtime, but Shane Buechele badly overthrew his intended receiver on their second play and Mike Lee was there to pick it off. After the Jayhawks marched inside the 5-yard line, their senior kicker playing in his final home game knocked through the winner.Its great to send the seniors out like this, he said. Theyve been through some struggles, some adversity, so it means a lot.Their stirring win made DOnta Foremans performance merely a footnote.The Texas running back carried a school-record 51 times for 250 yards and two touchdowns, though his two fumbles proved costly -- not only to the Longhorns season but quite possibly to Strongs future.The third-year coach has been on the hot seat all season, and the temperature is only going to rise after a loss to the lowly Jayhawks. Strong dropped to 16-20 since arriving at Texas, and not even the $10 million buyout he would be due could be enough to keep him from getting fired.We just had our opportunities there, Strong said. Not much needed to be said.Asked what it means for his future, Strong replied: No idea.The Jayhawks took advantage of four first-half turnovers, including a pick-six by Brandon Stewart, to take a 10-7 lead into tthe locker room. Nike Air Force 1 Clearance. But they committed two turnovers of their own in an ugly third quarter, which the Longhorns turned into back-to-back touchdowns for a 21-10 lead.Kansas marched downfield for a touchdown midway through the fourth quarter, and Steven Sims won the race to the pylon to convert the 2-point conversion and get within a field goal.That proved to be pivotal in the final minute of the game.The Jayhawks stuffed Texas on fourth down and regained possession with 58 seconds left. Three passes to Keaun Kinner and a targeting penalty got them within field goal range, and Wymans kick from 36 yards out with 7 seconds remaining sent the game to overtime.Set up one of the most memorable wins in recent history, too.The seniors have been through a whole lot, and we havent had too much success, Kansas safety Fish Smithson said. Just proud, proud of how hard we worked. How resilient weve been.THE TAKEAWAYTexas: Texas was shaky throughout the game, especially when Buechele left for a short period in the first half with an injury, in what might go down as the biggest indictment of Strongs tenure.Kansas: Kansas has been close to breaking through several times this season, including a 24-23 loss to TCU in early October and a 31-24 loss to Iowa State earlier this month.STRONGS FUTURETexas athletic director Mike Perrin declined to speak with reporters after the game, looking away when he approached them. Strongs wife, Victoria, was crying outside the Longhorns locker room and even Strong looked visibly shaken as he fielded questions.I love coach Strong. Thats my dog, Texas safety DeShon Elliott said. No matter what, I love him, but I said thats not our decision. We cant make that decision. Its the AD and all the men up there.SEE YAAfter police encircled the goal posts at the south end zone, students raced to the opposite end of the field and hopped on that set. It took them a while before they got them to the turf, then they carried them right out of Memorial Stadium.UP NEXTTexas heads to TCU on Saturday for what could be Strongs final game as coach.Kansas tries to make it two straight on Saturday at Kansas State.---More AP college football: and .
