CAVALIERS-JONES

Source: Cavs, James Jones agree on minimum deal

(AP) - LeBron James won't be the only player moving from Miami to Cleveland next season.

A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that Heat free agent James Jones will be joining James with the Cavaliers. Jones and the Cavaliers agreed to terms on a veteran minimum deal for $1.4 million on Wednesday. The person requested anonymity because an official announcement has not been made.

Jones spent the past six of his 11 NBA seasons in Miami. Last year Jones shot a career-high 46 percent on 3-pointers, but only appeared in 20 games.

He joins Mike Miller, who agreed to a two-year deal on Tuesday, as former James teammates that are following him to Cleveland.

MLS-SPORTING KC-CREW

Feilhaber's goal lifts Sporting KC over Crew 2-1

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Benny Feilhaber scored in the 93rd minute, and Sporting Kansas City earned its fourth consecutive road win by beating the Columbus Crew 2-1 on Wednesday night.

An uncontested Feilhaber rifled a shot off the crossbar from just outside the 18-yard box. Igor Juliao started the sequence with a pass slightly behind Jacob Peterson, who settled it for a trailing Feilhaber.

Sporting FC moved into first place in the MLS Eastern Conference.

C.J. Sapong's header gave Sporting KC (9-5-5) a 1-0 first half lead. But Sporting KC was reduced to 10-men in the 55th minute when Aurelien Collin received a red card after a challenge with Adam Bedell.

Columbus (4-7-8) tied it when Chad Barson lofted a cross inside the 6-yard box that deflected off Juliao's shoulder for an own goal in the 69th minute.

The Crew's Wil Trapp was sent off after receiving yellow cards in the 53rd and 89th minutes.

LPGA TOUR

Strong field, low scores expected at Marathon LPGA

SYLVANIA, Ohio (AP) - There's no shortage of prominent players to keep an eye on in this week's Marathon Classic LPGA event.

Defending champion Beatriz Recari, who outdueled Paula Creamer down the stretch in the final round a year ago, is back. Mo Martin, the Women's British Open winner on Sunday, is in the field. Then there's local favorite Stacy Lewis, a Toledo native and the world's No. 1-ranked player.

She'll be joined by the tournament's five-time winner, Se Ri Pak.

Regardless of who ends up winning on Sunday afternoon, it's likely somebody who produces birdies in bunches. Eleven times in the last 16 years, the winner at Highland Meadows has finished at 14 under or better.
