ATLANTA The Atlanta Hawks have requested waivers on guard Jordan Farmar, one
of five players acquired from the Brooklyn Nets in the deal for All-Star
Joe Johnson. Robert Mathis Jersey . Farmar played in
Israel during the NBA lockout last summer and has indicated he may return to
Europe. The Hawks also received guards Anthony Morrow and DeShawn Stevenson, and
forwards Jordan Williams and Johan Petro, as well as first
and second-round
picks, in the deal which became official on July 11. The Hawks are saving salary
cap space by removing Farmar from their roster. The 6-foot-2 Farmar averaged a
career-high 10.4 points in 39 games, including five starts, with the Nets last
season. Farmer was drafted out of UCLA by the Los Angeles Lakers with the No. 26
overall pick in the 2006 draft. Reggie Wayne Jersey . The 19-year-old
defenceman earned the games first star and has seven assists in his last two
outings and 14 assists in 14 games overall. Brody Silk scored three times for
the Wolves (7-7-0) as Joshua Leivo and Dominik Kahun each had a goal and three
assists. Andrew Luck Womens Jersey . Arsene Wengers
team trails leader Chelsea by 10 points, after Norwich captain Grant Holt
capitalized on goalkeeper Vito Mannones error in the 19th minute. http://www.coltsfanstore.com/adam-vinatieri-jersey

Guzman when Toronto FC signed him to a lucrative contract almost three years
ago. A local talent who made a name for himself in one of the top leagues in
Europe, he was counted on to be a catalyst for turning the young Major League
Soccer club into a playoff contender. Those plans came to an official end on
Friday as de Guzman was traded to FC Dallas, capping an inconsistent tenure for
his hometown club. TFC received forward Andrew Wiedeman in return. “Sometimes
you have to do some things for the football club that make the football club
better,” Toronto FCs head coach and director of soccer operations Paul Mariner
said on a conference call Friday. “I feel the fans sometimes are questioning the
things that were doing but this really helps us to improve the defensive
situation.” The move frees up a designated player spot and significant
salary-cap space. De Guzman was in the final year of a rich contract that paid
him US$1.9 million this season. Mariner said the team is in talks with a few
players who could fill the available DP spot and plug some gaps on the teams
ailing back line. “This creates significant flexibility for the team moving
forward,” Mariner said. “Weve been saying for quite some time that we need to
strengthen the defensive line and this gives us the ability to do so.” The
31-year-old de Guzman originally signed with Toronto FC as the clubs first
designated player in September 2009. He showed flashes of skill in Toronto, but
had trouble living up to his DP status and big contract. He had two goals and
eight assists in 65 league appearances for Toronto. “I know its been tough for
him over there,” said Patrice Bernier, a central midfielder for the Montreal
Impact and de Guzmans teammate on the Canadian national team. “From the get-go
when he arrived theres been a label. They expected a lot from him. “Personally I
think they didnt really help him out to make sure he was the key element in the
structure around him. It was tough for him. “Now hes moving on. I hope for him
that at least hell be able to enjoy his football and not live with all the
stress that he had in Toronto, and Toronto can move on also, not having the
label of a Canadian player thats a DP and they expected something out of it.”
Mariner said the decision to part with de Guzman came about “very recently.” A
possible factor in De Guzmans departure is the excellent recent form of
midfielders Torsten Frings and Terry DDunfield. Dwight Freeney Jersey. De Guzman found
himself on the outside looking in as Mariner went to a 4-4-2 system that
revolved around Frings and Dunfield in central midfield, with more offensive
players on the flank. “Terry Dunfield and Torsten Frings have done everything to
a T to what Ive been asking of them,” Mariner said. “Its been a little difficult
for Julian to get into that (central midfield) spot.” Prior to joining Toronto,
de Guzman spent time with Hannover 96 of the German Bundesliga and Deportivo La
Coruna of the Spanish La Liga. He was the first Canadian to play in La Liga, one
of the worlds premier leagues. He thrived with Deportivo, anchoring the Spanish
clubs midfield in the 2007-08 season, when he was named the clubs player of the
year. He has also earned 56 caps for the Canadian mens national team. De Guzman
said earlier this week he had hoped to work out a deal to stay in Toronto before
his contract expired in December. “Were in the early stages of talking about it
right now,” he said Tuesday when asked about his contract status. “Trying to
figure out what the best possibility is. Its going to take some time. Hopefully
Id like to know, I guess both parties like to know whats going to happen. But I
believe we just started talking, so well see what happens.” Asked about his
preference, he said: “Im happy here, it would be great for me to continue my
career here. Well just have to wait and see how both sides feel about it.” FC
Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman said de Guzman is a good fit for his teams
system. “He will give FC Dallas an additional veteran that can solidify our
possession style of play,” he said in a statement. “He also has a bit of
toughness to him that will help us win 50-50 balls and control the central
midfield.” De Guzman was travelling with the team on Friday, but Hyndman said he
wasnt sure if the paperwork would be ready in time to include him in the lineup
for Dallass game in Colorado on Saturday night. Wiedeman, 22, has made eight MLS
appearances. He was selected 21st overall in the 2010 SuperDraft. He came up to
the MLS through the Generation Adidas program, which encourages early entry of
American players into the league. As such, he doesnt count against the salary
cap. “Hes an intriguing player,” Mariner said. “Hes young. Hes very, very
hungry. Hes one of the best finishers Ive seen in the modern era. Im looking for
him to really take the bull by the horns and take this opportunity.” ’ ’ ’
