KISSIMMEE, Fla. [url=https://www.cheapthunder.com/281h-danny-fortson-jersey-thunder.html]Danny Fortson Jersey[/url] . -- The Atlanta Braves have been on a signing spree. So far theyve locked up first baseman Freddie Freeman, right fielder Jason Heyward, starter Julio Teheran, and closer Craig Kimbrel. On Wednesday, the Braves extended the contracts of general manager Frank Wren and manager Fredi Gonzalez. Wren and Gonzalez were entering the final years of their contracts and Braves president John Schuerholz simply said he wanted the deals to be done as soon as possible. Terms and the amount of the contracts were not disclosed. Schuerholz made the announcement before the first full-squad workout of the spring. "Theyve done wonderful jobs for us," Schuerholz said. "Were not going to talk about the lengths, but they have been extended." After a long first day with the full squad, Gonzalez said he was happy to have the contract issue out of the way. "Im excited," Gonzalez said. "It gives me a chance to stay in Atlanta and I love being here. This is a place I want to be for a long time. Im just happy with the whole thing." Last season, the Braves went 96-66 and won the National League East before falling in the playoffs. Gonzalez finished third in National League Manager of the Year voting. He has a career record with the Braves of 279-207. Gonzalez has a long history with the Braves as a third base coach under manager Bobby Cox. He started his managing career with the Florida Marlins where he served for 3 1/2 seasons. Wren has been in the Braves organization since 1999 and replaced Schuerholz as general manager after the 2007 season. Schuerholz said he was happy to have Wren and Gonzalez wrapped up before contracts became an issue during the regular season. "Its just not the way to run a company," said Schuerholz of spending the year negotiating contracts. These guys deserve better than that and thats why we did it." "Thats not something we wanted to avoid, its just not the way to run a company," he said. "And these guys deserve more than that, better than that, and thats why we did it." The four player signings along with the Wren and Gonzalez extensions, showed that the Braves arent afraid to spend money. On the four players alone, they spent $227.7 million. NOTES: Gonzalez got a chance to see RHP Brandon Beachy pitch and said he is impressed. Beachy was 2-1 with five starts last year after returning from Tommy John surgery. ... Gonzalez said he is still adjusting to the new rules regarding replay. The Braves will be allowed the use of replay three times during spring training. He said he is still trying to figure out the rules. He said he will likely have a part-time coach in the replay booth to send down signals on the calls. ... RHP Kris Medlen sat in front of the dugout at Champion Stadium to have his hair completely shaven to support awareness and funding for cancer research. Several cancer survivors helped out and Medlen said he felt fine about his new look after it was over.

He stayed up there to underline a point. After a miserable month, the Denver Nuggets are having fun again -- this time at the expense of the struggling Los Angeles Lakers. Ty Lawson had 20 points and 12 assists, Timofey Mozgov added 20 points and seven rebounds, and the Nuggets beat Los Angeles 137-115 Sunday night for their second straight win after an eight-game skid. Robinson scored 21 points, while Wilson Chandler and Kenneth Faried added 17 apiece as the Nuggets dropped 77 points on the Lakers in the second half. Robinson defiantly rubbed it in with 2:37 to play, clinging to the rim after his dunk put the Nuggets up by 24 points. "We just found our niche and found our energy," said Robinson, who scored 12 during the Nuggets 44-point fourth quarter. "We had a tough month, you could say. Its just that time to turn a new leaf, and just continue to play like we did tonight, and hopefully we can have a snowball effect and we can go streaking again." With an overwhelming second-half performance, Denver earned a win for coach Brian Shaw in his first game back at Staples Center to face the Lakers as a head coach. The longtime Lakers guard and assistant coach was passed over for the top job in Los Angeles after Phil Jacksons departure. Shaw believes the last few days have been cathartic for the Nuggets, who frayed at the seams during their skid. They played their third straight game without point guard Andre Miller, who is on personal leave until Monday after clashing with Shaw on the bench Wednesday night. "Stress, grieving, whatever it is, if you hold it in, it will eat you up from the inside," Shaw said. "I thought we aired out a lot of things, and that clarified for everyone where they stood. ... Two-game win streak, but its night and day from what it was prior to those last two games." Seven Nuggets scored in double figures in their fifth consecutive win over Los Angeles, scoring the most points by any Lakers opponent this season. Denver easily took control with a 17-2 run early in the fourth quarter,, remaining unbeaten against the Lakers since November 2012.

The Nuggets outrebounded Los Angeles 58-38 and hit 12 3-pointers, while the Lakers went 3 for 21 on long-distance shots. Pau Gasol had 25 points, 10 rebounds and five assists amid another round of trade rumours with the injury-battered Lakers, who have lost seven of eight. The 7-foot Spaniard has been sought by Cleveland in recent days for what essentially would be a money-saving move by the wealthy Lakers, and he acknowledges the uncertainty isnt helpful. Gasol said he played with "just a love for the game and a sense of pride and loyalty to my teammates and myself. I wanted to play my best and give it everything I have." Fourth-string point guard Kendall Marshall had nine points and a career-high 17 assists in his second straight start for the Lakers, who are without Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar due to injury. Marshall set a franchise record with 32 assists in his first two starts for Los Angeles. "I think we kind of unraveled a bit, and they kept coming and kept scoring and kept hitting difficult shots," Marshall said. At 14-20, Los Angeles chances of a playoff run are already waning in the continued absence of Bryant, who expressed dismay about the latest uncertainty around his 7-foot Spanish teammate before the game. Los Angeles has lost seven of its last nine games at Staples Center, but will play just one home game in the next 22 days. "Its tough. Theres no sugarcoating it," Lakers coach Mike DAntoni said. "Were in a hole, and we put ourselves in this hole. Well get guys coming back (from injury). We just have to keep playing hard, keep your head down, go through it." NOTES: Dozens of Auburn football fans watched the game from Staples Centers lower bowl on the night before the BCS championship game at the Rose Bowl. A luxury suite full of fans chanted slogans and held up an orange banner reading "War Eagle." ... Lakers C Robert Sacre needed five stitches to close a cut on his lower lip late in the first half. ... Eddie Murphy, Jessica Alba and Mark Wahlberg attended the game. ' ' '
