ANKARA, Turkey -- Fenerbahce will enter the Champions League on Friday despite its UEFA ban for match-fixing after winning an emergency ruling from the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The Turkish club said in a statement to the Istanbul stock exchange on Thursday it was cleared to take part in the third qualifying round draw. "The execution of the two-year ban from UEFA competitions given to our club by the UEFA (appeal) committee has been suspended by CAS," Fenerbahce said. CAS, which registered the Istanbul clubs appeal against UEFA on Wednesday, said all parties agreed to freeze sanctions until the full appeal verdict. "It is anticipated that hearings will take place in August with a final decision being issued before Aug. 28," the court said in a statement. That schedule gives CAS until the eve of the Champions League draw in Monaco -- though Fenerbahce needs to beat two opponents to reach that elite 32-team stage alongside the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Bayern Munich. "This struggle will continue until the end and both the whole of Turkey and the world will see that Fenerbahce is in the right," president Aziz Yildirim told the clubs television station. The case continues fallout from a widespread match-fixing scandal which has rocked Turkish football for two years, and brought Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan -- a Fenerbahce fan -- into the politics of UEFA and the Turkish Football Federation. UEFA expelled Fenerbahce from its competitions last month after judging that club officials fixed matches to win the 2011 Turkish league title. UEFA rules bar clubs if they are connected to fixing matches played since April 2007. Fenerbahce finished runner-up in the Turkish Super League last season to earn a preliminary-round place. League champion Galatasaray will advance direct to the group stage, which is worth at least 10 million euros ($13.09 million) in UEFA prize money and television rights payments to each Turkish club advancing. Still, Fenerbahce could yet be removed from Europes signature club competition even after playing matches. In August 2011, the Turkish federation -- reportedly under pressure from UEFA -- withdrew Fenerbahce the day before the Monaco draw. Then, runner-up Trabzonspor was restored by UEFA into the group stage even though it had already been eliminated in the qualifying rounds. Fenerbahce officials, including Yildirim, deny wrongdoing and are appealing their criminal convictions in national courts. In a second case Thursday, CAS cleared Beziktas to enter the Europa League draw ahead of its full appeal hearing next month against expulsion. UEFA ruled that Beziktas officials helped fix the teams 2011 Turkish Cup final win. Simeon Thomas Jersey .

West played an integral role towards Indianas run to the Central Division title and appearance in the Eastern Conference finals this past season, with the 10-year-veteran averaging 17.1 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists over 73 games as the Pacers starting power forward. Previous reports indicated that Wests new contract is for three years and worth $36 million. "This is the ideal situation for myself at this stage of my career," said West. "Theres really no other group that Id rather be part of for the next few years than this group." The 32-year-old spent his first eight NBA seasons with the New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets before signing a two-year deal with the Pacers shortly after the 2011 lockout. Over 669 career games, West has averaged 16.1 points and 7.2 rebounds and made back-to-back All-Star Games with the Hornets in 2008 and 2009. "Hes done more for this franchise then he could ever imagine," Pacers president of basketball operations Larry Bird said of West. "Coming in here, establishiing himself as a great player, not only on the court, but in the locker room and the city.dddddddddddd Theres special players that come through that are great players, but they dont give their heart and soul off the court or in the locker room to make other players better. Were very much appreciative of that." Indiana also introduced free agent addition C.J. Watson, who signed a reported two-year contract to serve as the teams new backup to starting point guard George Hill. Watson is coming off a solid season as Deron Williams understudy with the Brooklyn Nets in which the six-year pro averaged 6.8 points and 2.0 assists over 80 games and shot 41.1 percent from 3-point range. He averaged 9.7 points and a career-best 4.1 assists while starting 25 out of 49 contests for the Chicago Bulls the previous season. "C.J. Watson is exactly the type of player we were looking for when we said we needed to address our bench," said Bird. "Hes experienced and he has been with winning teams, so he knows what it takes." The 29-year-old Watson owns career averages of 7.6 points, 2.5 assists and a 38.2 percent 3-point percentage over 385 games.
