NEW YORK - Chinese investor Albert Hung went one step forward of nailing 15 percent stake of NBA Cleveland Cavaliers after a Michigan investment firm agreed to sell its share on Monday. Peyton Manning Jersey . A Cavaliers spokesman declined to comment, but Cavaliers vice chairman David Katzman, whose Camelot Venture Group owns the stake being sold, said an all-cash deal was reached and should be approved by year end. The terms of the deal were not disclosed. It would make Hung the second largest shareholder in the team after owner Dan Gilbert, Katzman said. NBA owners are expected to vote on the deal in the next five to six weeks, an NBA spokesman said. Reports first surfaced in May that a Chinese investor was buying a 15 percent stake in the Cavaliers, although those reports identified China-born American financier Kenny Huang. Katzman said that deal fell through and Hungs group was the third Chinese group with which he had negotiated. Forbes magazine ranked the Cavaliers last week as the No. 5 most valuable NBA team at 476 million dollars. Gilbert and Katzman s group doubled team revenue in the first four years after buying it in 2005, bringing the Cavaliers into the top five in revenue in the NBA, Katzman said. Katzman told CNBC, which first reported the deal was finalized, that Hung has many connections in China and sponsorships of the team by Chinese companies are expected to rise. It would mark the second major deal with an overseas investor involving an NBA team. In September, Russias richest man, Mikhail Prokhorov, reached a deal to buy control of the NBAs New Jersey Nets.

"Everybody was joking with me, telling me I had to do it again," Kennedy said of his 4-0 win on April 24, 2011. "I was saying, Come on. Ive only done it once in my life. (Colby Lewis) pitched like I did last time." Lewis retired the first 16 batters and finished with a four-hitter, leading the Rangers to a 9-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night.BRISBANE, Australia -- Andy Murray is one tournament into a partnership with new coach Ivan Lendl and already it has netted a title. The No. 4-ranked Murray warmed up for the Australian Open with a commanding 6-1, 6-3 win over third-seeded Alexandr Dolgopolov in the Brisbane International final. The victory provided the ideal start to Murrays partnership with Lendl, and the eight-time Grand Slam winner was courtside for only the second time when the 24-year-old Scot lifted the Roy Emerson Trophy. "Id like to thank my team ... Mr. Lendl, hes up there somewhere, hiding," Murray said of his new coach. "Its my first week with this new team and it was good. I really enjoyed it. Hopefully itll bring more success in the future." Meanwhile, Torontos Daniel Nestor and partner Max Mirnyi of Belarus defeated Austrias Jurgen Melzer and Germanys Philipp Petzschnerare 6-1, 6-2 in the doubles final. The 24-year-old Murrays next task is the Australian Open, where he has lost the past two finals, to be 0-3 in major finals overall -- a statistic hes desperate to improve. Thats on top of all the pressure from home to end a drought for British men at the Grand Slam tournaments dating back to 1936. His confidence high after capturing his 22nd ATP title, Murray will spend the next week in Melbourne preparing for the Australian Open, which starts Jan. 16. He raced through the first set against Doglopolov in 26 minutes -- he didnt lose a point on his serve until the last game, when the Ukrainian twice had breakpoint chances but was unable to convert. The No. 4-ranked Murray won nine straight games from 1-1 in the first to take the match away from Dolgopolov, who rallied briefly by winning three in a row -- including his only service break to get the second set back to 4-3. But Murray held to regain momentum and then broke Dolgopolovs serve for the fifth time in the match to finish it off in 65 minutes. Willis McGahee Jersey. Murray started the week slowly, dropping the opening sets of his first two matches and complaining of aches and pains, but didnt lose a service game in the quarter-final and semifinal as he gradually got his match fitness back up to speed. And he didnt show any sign of the groin strain which prematurely ended his 2011 season. In recent season, Murray had played the Hopman Cup, the international mixed team competition in Perth, to start the Australian summer, but wanted to change into tournament mode immediately in 2012 and appeared in Brisbane for the first time. A year on from losing the Australian Open final to Novak Djokovic, Murray thinks hes a better contender for the title. "Id hope so, yeah. A year wiser. Had more experience. Ive improved a few things in my game," Murray said. "I still played pretty good last year in Australia. I could play great tennis again and lose in the second or third round. Equally, could win the tournament if I play my best. "If I play well, like I did this week, I give myself a good chance." The 23-year-old Dolgopolov moved up to a year-end No. 15 ranking in 2011 and was aiming for his second ATP title, but was never in contention in the final. He has now lost all three matches against Murray, including the Australian Open quarter-finals last year. Dolgopolov strained his groin in his semifinal win over second-seeded Gilles Simon and wasnt at his peak against Murray. "Id like to say sorry for some boring tennis from me today," he told the crowd, "but thats the best I could do. "I wasnt really fit and feeling good this week, but I made the final, so Im really happy." ' ' '
