DENVER -- New Denver Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly says re-signing free agent shooting guard Andre Igoudala is his No. 1 priority. Connelly was formally introduced on Thursday by team president Josh Kroenke. "The last guy we talked to before coming in for this press conference was Andre," Connelly told reporters. "Hes such a pro that hes out there (on the court) working out." The Nuggets top defender, Igoudala recently opted out of the final year of his contract after averaging 13 points a game last season. His situation is just one of several Connelly will have to deal with as he tries to help the Nuggets become a genuine playoff contender. The 36-year-old Connelly comes to the Nuggets from New Orleans, where he served as assistant general manager under Dell Demps. He replaces NBA Executive of the Year Masai Ujiri, who took the GM job with the Toronto Raptors last week. Considered a rising front-office talent, Connelly inherits a team that won a franchise-most 57 games during the regular season only to bow out in the first round of the playoffs again, this time to Golden State. Besides the potential loss of Igoudala, the Nuggets will be without Danilo Gallinari for the start of next season as the Italian forward recovers from an ACL injury. And Connelly, with Kroenke, also will have to find a replacement for NBA Coach of the Year George Karl, who was let go on June 6 after the early payoff exit. The Nuggets interviewed former Memphis Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins on Wednesday and have also interviewed Indiana Pacers assistant coach Brian Shaw, but have not set a specific deadline for hiring a coach. "I dont think we want to put a concrete timeline on anything," Connelly said. "Theres the potential to talk to additional candidates, and weve talked to two great candidates. The two guys weve interviewed are tremendous, and I look forward to going into Joshs office and seeing where we are in that process." Finding the right personality fit for the coaching job is most important to Connelly, who said he wont dictate a style or philosophy with the new coach. "I would never try to impose any strategic restraints on a coach," Connelly said. "Im looking for a good guy whos excited to have the job and build off where we are presently." Kroenke, who offered Connelly the job during a Saturday night dinner, was bullish about his new hire. "Im really excited to have Tim here, and its going to be a lot of fun moving forward," Kroenke said. "I hope Nuggets fans are as excited as I am. Ive known Tim the last several years, and weve stayed in loose contact. "It became a very easy decision to hire him and bring him here after a couple dominoes started to fall." One domino was assistant GM Pete DAlessandro leaving to become general manager for the Sacramento Kings late last week. "Pete and I discussed the position, and I think hes going to have a wonderful opportunity in Sacramento," Kroenke said. "Once that happened, I didnt waste any time and it was a quick decision for me. There was one person I wanted to bring in and immediately discuss the job with, and that was Tim." Kroenke said the prospect of re-signing Igoudala, the teams highest-paid player at more than $14 million, is very good. "I think 100 per cent," Kroenke said. "I had a good conversation with his agent last week. Andre is somebody we definitely want to bring back, and Andre is aware of our intentions to bring him back as well." Connelly thanked Ujiri as he said how happy he was about the new job. "I feel great about where the team is," Connelly said. "Theres a winning culture ingrained here, and its a heck of a team Im inheriting. I look at the roster and think Im the luckiest guy in the world." Air Jordan Outlet . "Theyve both been real good," said Babcock. "Havent changed our minds." A decision has seemingly been made - Sundays Group B-deciding tilt against Finland ahead - but it could not have been an easy one. Price opened the tournament with a sturdy 19-save performance against the Norwegians, yielding just one goal. Cheap Air Jordan Free Shipping . LOUIS -- St. . But what about the officials? Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle.

He struck out two, walked one and hit a batter. Edwin Encarnacion had a two-out, bases loaded two-RBI double in the third inning.VANCOUVER -- Years from now Gleb Suvurov can tell his grandchildren about the night he beat Olympic champion Ryan Lochte. The 20-year-old Calgary resident outraced the five-time Olympic goal medallist in the 50-metre backstroke Saturday at the Mel Zajac Jr. International Canada Cup. Suvurov will be the first to say the 50 back isnt one of Lochtes favourites. And the 28-year-old from Daytona Beach, Fla., is using the meet, being held at the University of British Columbia Aquatic Centre, as training for the U.S. World Championship trials. Still, a win is a win. "It felt good," said Suvurov, who will represent Canada at next months World Student Games in Kazan, Russia. "Its not my best time but Im happy. "Lochte really wasnt tapered." Suvurov, who moved to Canada from Russia with his parents six years ago, was timed in 26.39 seconds. Lochte, who won both his races Friday night, was second in 26.52 seconds. The personable Lochte chuckled when asked about Suvurov now having bragging rights. "He better not get used to it, for my sake," he said. "He swam a good race. "The 50 back, I really cant say much about it. As far as Im concerned 50s should not be in swimming. Too short of an event for me. I need a couple of turns." Any frustration Lochte felt over the loss were worked out in the 200-metre individual medley which he won in a meet record time of two minutes 0.15 seconds. Suvurov was third in 2:06.66. "I just wanted to go out there and race tough," said Lochte, the world record holder in the 200 IM. "What me and my coach talked about was the race strategy and my stroke technique, hitting the walls right. "I showed tonight. I am on the right track." It also was a good night for Torontos Brittany MacLean, who has battled injuries all season. MacLean, who swims at Georgia, won the 400 freestyle in 4:13.32. "Its nice to see a good result," said the 19-year-old who finished seventh in the same event at the 2012 London Olympics. "Its a pretty decent time for me right now. "I worked my arms more than normal just because I have a little bit of a weak leg. It feelt great all the way through.dddddddddddd Im encouraged and excited to get faster for the summer." MacLean began the year with a shoulder problem, then hurt her hamstring while qualifying for the Canadian team that will compete at the World Championships in August. Prior to the nights first swim Olympic medallist Brent Hayden was recognized in a special retirement ceremony. The former 100-metre freestyle world champion, and three-time Olympian, was presented with a plaque that contained his swimming history plus photographs and memorabilia. "It was amazing," said the 29-year-old who retired after winning a bronze medal at last summers London Olympics. "Sometimes I have to remember exactly what it was I accomplished over 10 years. "It almost brought a tear to me eye." Hayden, who was born in Mission, B.C., and attended UBC, remains the Canadian record holder in the 200, 100 and 50-metre freestyle. Tera Van Beilen of Oakville, Ont., won her second race of the weekend, taking the 200-metre breaststroke in 2:29.51. "I think I can only get better from here," said Van Beilen. "This is still within a hard training block. So the fact I am where I am now, despite what happened last week, its positive for me. I can only keep smiling as much as I can right now." Other womens races winners included Vancouvers Noemie Thomas, who took the 100-metre butterfly in 58.78; Calgarys Ingrid Wilm won the 50 backstroke in 29.58; Tianna Rissling of Redcliff, Alta., won the 200 IM in 2:17.30; and American Natalie Hinds was victorious in the 50 freestyle in 25.87. Among the mens winners was Vancouvers Coleman Allen, who won the 100 butterfly in 54.71; Victorias Jeremy Bagshaw the 400 freestyle in 3:53.56; American Bradley deBorde took the 50 free in 23.67; and Andrew Poznikoff, of Drumheller, Alta., the 200 breaststroke in 2:18.44. The womens 4x200-metre relay was won by the University of Calgary team of Rissling, Breanna Hendriks, Lindsay Delmar and Fiona Doyle in 8:26.02. The mens 4x200 relay was won by the Team Alberta squad of Hunter Balch, Marshal Parker, Anthony Lyons and Jonathan Brown, in 7:40.59. ' ' '
