NBA free agency news: Cavaliers waive JR Smith

first_img NBA trade rumors: Cavaliers ‘surprised they haven’t found a taker’ for JR Smith Thank you, @TheRealJRSmith 🏆NEWS: https://t.co/XKDBc8h7pe pic.twitter.com/CO5g8bC8oG— Cleveland Cavaliers (@cavs) July 15, 2019Smith will now receive over $4.4 million, according to The Athletic, and become a free agent after almost five seasons with the organization.Sources: The Cleveland Cavaliers have waived JR Smith, making him a free agent. Cavs had been attempting to move Smith all the way up until the 5 p.m. ET waiver deadline today.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 15, 2019It ends an era in Cleveland in which Smith was part of NBA Finals teams.

Game 1 of the 2018 Finals, when he grabbed a rebound at the end of the game and, forgetting that the Cavs weren’t winning, dribbled out most of the final seconds of the fourth quarter.

He even played in the celebrity softball game as part of this month’s MLB All-Star Game in Cleveland.Now with Smith’s release, the Cavaliers will remain about $22 million over the cap, set at $109 million for the upcoming season but still under the luxury tax line of $132 million.Talks of trading Smith began shortly after he was asked to leave the team in November, when the Cavs considered him a trade asset. Instead, they were unable to complete any deals involving him — Cleveland had hoped to get a future first-round pick — and eventually saw waiving him and staying under the luxury tax line as a benefit itself. It allows the Cavs to stay out of the repeater tax until they are ready to be competitive again, and it also gives them financial flexibility, something they view as important during this rebuild, according to cleveland.com, which earlier Monday was first to report of Smith’s impending release.Smith, 33, played in only 11 games in 2018-19 after agreeing to leave the team in November to await a trade or his release. A 15-year NBA veteran, he is a career 37 percent 3-point shooter.last_img read more

Can I Afford to Have LASIK? Aurora LASIK says Yes

first_imgFacebook9Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Dr. Jay Rudd, Aurora LASIKOne of the most frequent questions we get about LASIK is, “How much does it cost?”  Rightfully, most of us are cost conscious. However, those considering blade-free LASIK should weigh the cost alongside the tremendous lifelong benefit of clearer vision.So, let me first address the issue of LASIK pricing.If you’re considering LASIK, you’ve probably noticed widely varying prices advertised by LASIK providers. Some are hard to resist. However, people quickly learn in the disclaimers of bargain basement pricing that there’s a catch. Either it’s the additional cost of “enhancements” that aren’t included (but are essential for the best outcomes). Or, the provider is not using the latest technology that will deliver the kind of results you want for the only two eyes you’ve got!Dr. Jay Rudd helps patients see better each day at Lacey’s Aurora LASIK.As a fellowship-trained surgeon for over 16 years, my highest priority has always been to provide the most advanced options available for clearer, brighter vision. So when we opened Aurora LASIK late last year, we were determined to offer transparent pricing that ensures you’ll get the highest level of care available in the U.S., with no pricing surprises.  After all, who wants to cut corners when your vision is on the line?We also want to ensure that, not only will our patients be thrilled with the results (96% of our LASIK patients are seeing 20/20 or better), they can count on their investment lasting a lifetime. So we offer our lifetime enhancement policy that delivers peace of mind into the future.Now, let’s talk about that investment. It’s always interesting to me how people will spend $5/day on a latte (that’s $1,820 a year) or $100/month or more for digital cable (or $1,200/year), yet when it comes to LASIK, they’ll trust their eyes (and future eyesight) to the lowest bidder.Aurora LASIK’s Lacey offices provide the most advanced technologies available. Photo courtesy: Aurora LASIKEven those who turn to contacts or eyeglasses often fail to consider the compounded cost that can run, conservatively, $500 a year (or $5,000 over a ten-year period).The national average for blade-free LASIK is about $2,250/eye. At Aurora LASIK, our $2,200/eye pricing includes all pre- and post-operative care, in addition to our lifetime enhancement policy — to bring you the best vision outcome possible.And for a limited time only, we’re offering our summer special of $500 off LASIK.To make it even more affordable, we have special 100% financing through Alphaeon Credit, allowing you to create a payment plan that fits your budget.Isn’t it time you invested in something that will open up a new world of better vision — for a lifetime? Call us today at (360) 459-LASIK to schedule a free screening. Or join us for one of our free seminars, and you’ll be entered to win $1,000 off LASIK!last_img read more
