The Los Angeles Clippers upgraded their perimeter rotation as part of a three-way deal involving the Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks. Numbers Game looks at the deal sending J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley to Los Angeles. The Clippers Get: SG J.J. Redick and SF Jared Dudley. Redick, 29, is a three-point sharpshooter who has also turned into a pretty fair perimeter defender. Shooting 39.0% on three-pointers over the course of his career, Redick was shooting at that rate prior to last seasons trade to Milwaukee, but he faded down the stretch, hitting just 31.8% from beyond the arc for the Bucks, and finishing a career-low 36.6%. Even so, Redick finished with a caeer-high 14.1 points and 3.8 assists per game, making a career-best 2.1 three-pointers per game, the fourth straight season that his made threes-per-game has increased. With the Clippers, Redick would appear to be a fine fit, with his deep shooting ability serving as a way to spread the floor for penetrating PG Chris Paul as well as bigs DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin. Reports indicate that Redick will sign a four-year, $27-million deal to join the Clippers. Jared Dudley is a 27-year-old small forward who has put together three straight decent seasons for a Suns team that hasnt been very good. In 2012-2013, Dudley averaged 10.9 points, 3.1 rebounds and a career-high 2.6 assists per game, shooting 46.8% from the field, including 39.1% on threes. Over his career, Dudley is shooting 40.5% on three-point attempts, ranking 13th among active players. Dudley has two years, at $4.25-million per, left on his contract, with a player option, at the same price, for a third year. Between Redick and Dudley, the Clippers are adding a pair of wings that have combined for 7-9 three-point attempts per game over the last three seasons. With the three-point shot ever-increasing in importance, the Clippers made a strong move to improve that aspect of their perimeter play. The Suns Get: PG Eric Bledsoe and SF Caron Butler. 23-year-old Eric Bledsoe is coming off a strong season in which he guided one of the leagues best second units and set career-highs with 8.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.4 steals per game, while playing 20:23 per game as Chris Pauls backup. Bledsoe didnt shoot a lot from long range, but his 39.7% from beyond the arc was a vast improvement over his first two years in the league. Since the Suns already have Goran Dragic at the point, there is some expectation that Bledsoe is going to also spend time at shooting guard in order to get him more playing time. Bledsoe will make $2.626-million this season and will be a restricted free agent at seasons end. Butler, 33, has had some good seasons, but is nearing the end of the line. He scored 10.4 points per game, the second-lowest scoring rate of his career while attempting a career-low 9.2 field goals per game, last season. He also had career-lows in rebounds (2.9), assists (1.0), steals (0.7) and minutes (24:06) per game. Heading into the final year of a contract that will pay him $8-million, Butler could play a regular role in the Suns rotation next season, but hes merely a short-term placeholder as the team builds for the future. The Suns get more athletic with Bledsoe in their lineup and he could be a part of their future, but right now hes part of a roster that is at least a few years away from being competitive. The Bucks Get: A second-round pick from both the Clippers and the Suns. While two second-round picks may not amount to much, they are a pair of assets in exchange for a player, Redick, that the Bucks werent going to keep anyway.

Serves hit by her surgically repaired shoulder often missed the mark, resulting in 12 double-faults. Shots that would be winners against most opponents were retrieved by Simona Halep and sent right back. Leads that usually hold up vanished in a blink. On a muggy afternoon, with the temperature in the high 70s (20s Celsius), points were lung-searing struggles. Sharapova was up to the task. In an entertaining and undulating championship match -- the first womens final at Roland Garros in 13 years to go three sets -- Sharapova showed that shes as tough as they come, particularly on the red clay that used to flummox her. She edged Halep 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-4 Saturday to win a second French Open title in three years. "This is the toughest Grand Slam final Ive ever played," Sharapova said. It is her fifth major trophy in all. Remarkably, Sharapova owns twice as many from Paris as the one each she won at Wimbledon in 2004, the U.S. Open in 2006, and the Australian Open in 2008. "If somebody had told me ... at some stage in my career, that Id have more Roland Garros titles than any other Grand Slam, Id probably go get drunk," Sharapova said with a chuckle. "Or tell them to get drunk. One or the other." The 3-hour, 2-minute tangle featured too many momentum swings to count, filled with lengthy baseline exchanges, and terrific defence and shotmaking by both women. Not bad for someone who once famously described herself as feeling like a "cow on ice" when it came to playing on clay, a slow, demanding surface that requires excellent footwork. Now Sharapova knows how to move on clay, and can stretch points when needed. Since the start of 2012, Sharapova is 54-4 with seven titles on clay. Shes also won 20 consecutive clay three-setters, including four in a row this week. "It says that shes very fit. It says that shes very determined," said Sven Groenefeld, Sharapovas coach. "And it says that she never gives up." Sharapova broke into a huge smile while hoisting the trophy overhead, then shaking it with both hands and scanning a stadium that, improbably, has become hers. This was her third final in a row in Paris: She won the 2012 title to complete a career Grand Slam, then lost last year to Serena Williams, who bowed out in the second round this time. Sharapova is 20-1 the last thhree years at Roland Garros -- which is nothing compared to Rafael Nadals 65-1 career French Open mark heading into Sundays final Sunday against Novak Djokovic, but certainly quite impressive.dddddddddddd "Youre not just born being a natural clay-court player. OK, maybe if youre Nadal. But certainly not me," Sharapova said. "I didnt grow up on it; didnt play on it. I just took it upon myself to make myself better on it." Plus, Sharapova had an operation on her right shoulder, the one she uses to swing her racket, in October 2008. That joint troubled the Russian again in 2013, when she played one match from July to December. She now travels with a physiotherapist, Jerome Bianchi, and told him during the post-match ceremony, "Thank you for keeping me healthy." This was the ninth Grand Slam final for the No. 7-seeded Sharapova, and the first for Halep, a 22-year-old Romanian seeded fourth. Supported by a dozen folks in her guest box wearing red T-shirts saying "Allez Simona," and fans that chanted her first name, Halep acquitted herself well, showing off the scrambling baseline style that carried her to six straight-set wins until Saturday. "I will not forget this match," said Halep, who wiped away tears afterward. Each time it appeared Sharapova was ready to pull away, she was forced to do extra work. At 4-3 in the second set, Sharapova held two break points, but Halep saved both with gutsy groundstrokes. In the tiebreaker, Sharapova got within two points of victory at 5-3, but Halep took the next four to claim the set. Thats when Sharapova left for the locker room, taking an 8-minute break during which she changed out of her sweat-soaked outfit -- and let Halep stew for a bit. Sharapova went ahead 4-2, but Halep broke back to 4-all. It turned out that was her last stand, though. Sharapova wouldnt lose another point, gritting her teeth and shaking her fists after breaking at love for 5-4 with a backhand winner, then holding at love by forcing a backhand error from Halep on match point. When it ended, Sharapova dropped to her knees, caking her shins with clay, and folded her body forward, burying her face in her hands. "I had good tactics today. I opened the angles. Also, I was hitting the ball strong," Halep said. But Sharapova, Halep continued, "was moving really well." Cow on ice? More like Queen of Clay.
