OKLAHOMA CITY - Free agent forward Glen Davis informed the Clippers on Sunday that he will sign with them. Coach Doc Rivers said the deal wasn't "official yet. " "Hopefully it will be," Rivers said. Davis, who got a buyout from the Orlando Magic on Friday, cleared waivers at 2 p.m. West Coast time Sunday. He will join the Clippers in New Orleans on Monday night for their game against the Pelicans or back in Los Angeles on Wednesday night for their game against the Houston Rockets.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - By no means is Clippers Coach Doc Rivers going to let anyone simply out-recruit him for the services of forward Glen "Big Baby" Davis . After the Orlando Magic bought out Davis' contract Friday, it became clear that Rivers, who coached Davis with the Boston Celtics, and the Clippers strongly believe Davis will come to Los Angeles. But the Brooklyn Nets and their veterans Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce also are making a pitch for Davis. Rivers says he won't take for granted that Davis will be a Clipper if he clears waivers Monday and becomes an unrestricted free agent.

His shaggy blond hair flew, her porcelain body floated, the two old friends leaned on each other, spun off each other and moved together in the synchronicity of a lifetime. On a chilling Monday night at the Winter Olympics, Americans Meryl Davis and Charlie White won the gold medal in ice dancing by dancing as if there were no ice. Their skates were slippers, the Iceberg Skating Palace was their ballroom and their jukebox blared "Scheherazade" for four minutes that represented a triumph of 17 years.

HOUSTON - The woman who wants to be the next Texas governor stood at a podium in an inner-city community center here last week, a polished blond in a tailored pink jacket, black slacks and heels, and invoked her rags-to-riches narrative. "The promise of Texas is that where you start does not determine where you go," state Sen. Wendy Davis said. Davis, a Democrat, is attempting to sell Texas voters on her transformation from single mother in a Fort Worth trailer park to Harvard-educated lawyer and state lawmaker gracing the pages of Vogue.

SOCHI, Russia - Seventeen years of skating together, learning together, growing up together. Seventeen years since an 8-year-old and a 9-year-old were thrown together as an ice dance team, a pairing that irritated the younger member, Charlie White. He already had been doing it for six months, and Meryl Davis was just starting, so he was back to dance square one while she caught up - quickly. Seventeen years during which Davis said there never was doubt about whether they should stick it out. FRAMEWORK: Best images from Sochi Seventeen years leading to a free dance so physically and mentally demanding it left them looking as if they had spent 17 years of energy on the four minutes of skating, unable to do anything but collapse into each other's arms when it was over Monday night at the Iceberg Skating Palace.

SOCHI, Russia - Shani Davis understands. He is saying hello just when he might be saying goodbye. In his fourth Olympics, Davis knows he finally has the attention of an American public that pays attention to his sport only a week or two every four years. So it pains the 31-year-old from Chicago that they are not seeing Shani Davis the champion, the skater who has won Olympic titles, world titles and a zillion World Cup races, the skater who long has been an icon in Europe, especially the Netherlands.
