PORTLAND, Ore. -- Steve Blake is coming back to the Trail Blazers. A person with knowledge of the deal who cannot comment until it is formally announced confirmed Thursday that the free agent point guard has signed a two-year deal with Portland. The agreement was first reported by Yahoo! Sports. The contract is worth a reported $4.2 million with a player option for the second year. Blake has had two previous stints with the Blazers, most recently from 2007-09, becoming a fan favourite before going on to play for the Lakers, Clippers and Golden State Warriors. Blake has averaged 6.9 points, 4.0 assists and 2.2 rebounds over an 11-year NBA career. Last season he averaged 6.9 points and 5.6 assists, splitting the season between the Lakers and Warriors. The Trail Blazers can use Blake to help back up All-Star guard Damian Lillard. Mo Williams, who was first off the bench last season, is a free agent this summer and has reportedly talked to the Dallas Mavericks. Blake also has a relationship with centre Chris Kaman, who agreed to terms with the Blazers last week. Kaman, who signed a 2-year deal worth a reported $9.8 million, will back up starting centre Robin Lopez. Blakes wife, Kristen, posted a photo of Blake and Kaman together while on the Lakers to Twitter, writing: "Steve Blake and Chris Kaman, together forever. .Portlandia." The Blazers used their midlevel exception to sign Kaman and their biannual exception to sign Blake. Blake signed with the Blazers as a free agent in 2005 then was traded the next season to the Milwaukee Bucks. He signed with Portland again in 2007 before being traded to the Clippers in 2010. Blakes best season came in 2008-09 with Portland, when he started and averaged a career-high 11.0 points. Wholesale NFL Jerseys China .ca.

Konerko had a big three-run double and Gordon Beckham homered for the second straight game, leading the Chicago White Sox to an 8-3 victory over the sliding Chicago Cubs.Karl Subban kept a hockey stick in his car, just in case.That way, once finishing his night school teaching job, Subban could call home to see if his son P.K. was up for a moonlight skate at the rink outside Torontos City Hall. Though many 4-year-olds are in bed before 9 p.m., Karl made this exception for an enthusiastic boy already displaying a passion for hockey.Skip a night and the youngster was upset. And once he was on the ice, P.K. Subban didnt want to leave, even for the pizza slice that usually followed.We would be out there until midnight, and many nights after midnight, the father said. I didnt plan to stay late, but the hockey players would come out once the public skate ended. And P.K., he was so hungry for it. He would say, Daddy, I want to stay and play.Pernell Karl Subban is still hungry.At 25, the Toronto-born son of parents with Caribbean roots has taken the NHL by storm entering his fifth full season playing defence for the Montreal Canadiens.Subbans exceptional puck-handling skills, cannon-like shot and over-the-top personality have turned him one of the leagues transcendent stars. The 2013 Norris Trophy winner is as recognized on the ice as the red carpet, where he recently befriended movie director Spike Lee.Subbans talent is occasionally overshadowed by his extraordinarily playful demeanour — and colorful goal celebrations — that some call brash.I dont know why people would think that, he said. Just because youre outgoing, doesnt mean youre selfish.The topic of selfishness was brought up by Subban while discussing the expectations that come with his new eight-year, $72 million contract.For a team to be successful, the best players have to understand that theyre not going to be the stars every night, Subban said. I think the selfish guys want to be stars every night. Theres nothing wrong with that. But you have to do your job and be the greatest player in your role, whatever that is.For Subban, that role includes a commitment to playing defence because of an unbridled playing style that led to him being called a threat — as a scorer but also as a defensive liability.If you want to win, then really it shouldnt change how you feel. And it hasnt for me, he said. At the end of the night we get two points, Im a happy camper.By that measure, Subban is succeeding on a team that hasnt won the Stanley Cup since 1993. The Canadiens have been near the top of the Eastern Conference standings all season.Subban is still contributing on offence. Tied for second on the team with 27 points (eight goals, 19 assists) through 39 games, he is on pace to match the career-best 53 points (10 goals, 43 assists) he established last season.And hes become more responsible on defence. Subbans plus-minus rating is a healthy plus-10, and hes part of the NHLs fifth-ranked penalty-killing unit.Coach Michel Therriens objective is harnessing Subbans talents to make him an elite two-way player. The challenge is tweaking Subbans game — not the person.We go step by step. But one thing for sure is we dont want him to lose his personality off the ice, Therrien said. Hes a fun guy to work with because we know where the potential is.Subban relishes the challenges that come with being the NHLs top-paid defenceman and playing under the microscope in the dual-language hockey mecca of Montreal. Hes as coomfortable discussing his new role as a first-time assistant captain as he is revealing on TV how his pregame diet gives him gas to gain an edge while near opposing goalies.ddddddddddddAt his stall in the visitors locker room in Buffalo in late November, Subban is engaged in what appears to be a heated exchange with defensive partner Andrei Markov over a post-practice stretching exercise. As Markov shakes his head and leaves, Subbans mood brightens. He looks up and greets a visitor with a smile.It is this light-hearted approach that makes Subban a fan favourite in Montreal, where he is heavily involved in numerous charitable causes. His Twitter account (@PKSubban1) has more than 500,000 followers and features references to hockey and Hollywood, and a picture of him posing with Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel.In recent months, he made the cover of a Sports Illustrated issue distributed in Canada; was featured in The New Yorker; and followed around by 60 Minutes for a profile.Issues of race — Subban is black — dont seem to affect him.After Subban scored in double-overtime in the first game of a second-round playoff series at Boston in May, several Bruins fans posted racists comments on Twitter. Subban defused the controversy by saying he didnt consider the comments to represent the Bruins or their fans.Were so far past that, Subban said. What I said is exactly what I felt, that the game of hockey and the people in it are great.And yet, there have been detractors.In 2010, former Philadelphia Flyers captain Mike Richards questioned Subbans character as a rookie.Hes a guy that comes in the league and hasnt earned respect, Richards told a Montreal radio station. Its just frustrating to see a young guy like that come in here and so much think that hes better than a lot of people.Now with the Los Angeles Kings, Richards wasnt interested in revisiting those comments following a recent loss at Buffalo.Its so far gone, Richards told The Associated Press. Honestly, my impressions, I dont have anything either way. Im not going to discuss that.Former teammate Daniel Briere called Subban genuine and a perfect fit to handle the pressures of playing in Montreal.A lot of guys sometimes crumble, said Briere, now with Colorado. He wants it. I think he feeds off that. ... Hes very charismatic.Karl Subban has seen that in his son all along, and watched P.K.s confidence sprout because of his ability to excel at hockey.The one thing I know is that the younger a child can become good at something, the better they feel, the better their self-esteem is, Subban said, addressing his sons critics. They can say whatever they want, but they cant change how he plays on the ice. When its all said and done, is P.K. able to get the job done on the ice? ... The bigger the game, the better he plays.The elder Subban is particularly proud by how P.K. has handled himself when faced with adversity.The minute you take your eyes off your destination, you will never get to where you want to go in life, he said. We have seen how hes handled himself from stuff around race or his contract and playing in Montreal when the teams not playing well. He embraces all of that.___AP Sports Writer Teresa Walker, in Nashville, Tennessee, and freelance writer Matt Carlson in Chicago contributed to this report. ' ' '
