Photo by Scott Clarke / ESPN(NEW YORK) -– Paul Pierce will join the Los Angeles Clippers after agreeing to a three-year, $10.6 million deal, according to a report by ESPN.

Pierce shot 52.4 percent from behind the arc during the playoffs, and bumped his points per game average from 11.9 in the regular season to 14.6 for the postseason.

Pierce, the one-time NBA champion and veteran of three teams, was the eighth-oldest player in the NBA this past season.

Sen. John McCain at the Arizona Diamondbacks game against the Los Angeles Dodgers watching out for a foul ball, June 30, 2015. (@Dbacks/Twitter)(PHOENIX) -- Arizona Sen. John McCain is used to playing hardball -- but not the kind where he risks getting hit in the face.

That's until Tuesday night, when a foul ball at an Arizona Diamondbacks game made a beeline for his face.

The senator seemed to take the hit in stride, joking about it on Twitter.

Maddie Meyer/Getty Images(CLEVELAND) -- Free agent Kevin Love is staying put.

Love said Wednesday he will re-sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He made the announcement on the website

I’m going back to Cleveland.

After Game 1 of the NBA Finals, that’s when it really struck me. Sitting on the sidelines, I never wanted to play in a game more than that one. I had dreamed of playing in the NBA Finals and I just wanted to help my guys win. I couldn’t have been prouder of them as they poured their blood, sweat and tears onto the court.

Yeah, of course I’ve heard the free agency rumors. But at the end of the day, and after meeting with my teammates (it turns out pools are great meeting places) and with the front office, it was clear Cleveland was the place for me. We’re all on the same page and we’re all in. We have unfinished business and now it’s time to get back to work.

The deal, according to ESPN, is worth $110 million over five years.

Despite stating several times his intention to re-sign with the Cavs, there was some speculation that Love -- who played for UCLA and lives in Los Angeles during the offseason -- could be swayed by the Lakers; he, along with LaMarcus Aldridge, DeAndre Jordan and Greg Monroe, were all schedule to meet with L.A. this week.

Al Bello/Staff/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Bobby Bonilla's payday is here again.

Each year on July 1, from now until 2035, the former Major League Baseball player collects a check for $1,193,248.20 from the New York Mets.

The money is part of a deferred buyout deal – paid over 25 installments – that the team agreed to following the 1999 season. Bonilla was owed $5.9 million, but instead of simply footing the bill, the Mets agreed to defer the payments, with interest, until 2011.

July 1, 2015 marks the fifth payment, with 20 remaining. In total, the Mets will pay Bonilla $29.8 million in the yearly payments.

Bonilla – who hasn’t played in the major leagues since 2001 – will earn more money from the Mets this season than 16 players currently on the team's active roster, according to salary data.

Photo by Minas Panagiotakis/Getty Images(MONTREAL) -- The U.S. Women's National Soccer team defeated Germany 2-0 on Tuesday night to advance to the final of the World Cup.

The U.S. narrowly avoided calamity in the second half when defender Julie Johnston took down German attacker Alexandra Popp in the box for a penalty kick. Celia Sasic missed the kick, however, putting the ball just wide of net.

The U.S. responded in the 69th minute with a penalty kick of their own, which found the back of the net off the foot of Carli Lloyd. The Americans added a second goal thanks to a beautiful play from Lloyd and Kelly O'Hara in the 84th minute.

The U.S. had shut out its previous two opponents, defeating Colombia 2-0 and China 1-0.

The U.S. team will advance to play the winner of Wednesday's semifinal match featuring England and Japan.

Photo by Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(TORONTO) -- In a sentence that's becoming commonplace this summer, Luke Ridnour, the veteran NBA point guard, has been traded.

Ridnour has been dealt four times since the NBA season ended, in part because his contract does not become guaranteed until July 11. Since the season's end, Ridnour has been sent from the Orlando Magic to the Memphis Grizzlies, to the Charlotte Hornets, to the Oklahoma City Thunder and now to the Toronto Raptors.

Ridnour, 34, has played in 12 NBA seasons, appearing in 47 games last year for Orlando.
