According to a source, J.R. Smith will likely opt out of his contract and become an unrestricted free agent after this season.

Smith signed a one-year deal with a player option last summer.

Smith has posted a career-year in his second season with the Knicks, averaging 18.1 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 33.5 minutes off the bench.

Didn't he consider the Lakers before signing with the Knicks? Or was he just playing with our hearts?

^ Same way for example hardly anyone would've clicked the Magic's son coming out of the closet with Kobe supporting thread being moved to the off-topic section, no lakers talk nor even nba talk. I'm just trying to follow protocol.

On topic, yes it was between the Lakers and the Knicks.

But Smith is likely opting out to try to get more money, not less which he would have taken to be here which he ultimately took to be in New York instead.

So we won't hook him with our MLE this time around.


 

I've always liked Steve Blake.

Trade for Austin Rivers, say, Hill & Johnson.

He's leaving NY for sure. The tattoo-stricken idiot is broke despite his millions earned in the past, so he's only looking for a payday. Winning < more tattoo money.

I know this is old, but OP, I just wanted to apologize for my posts in this thread. I can admit that I was actually wrong and thus this kind of news is worthy of its own thread instead of getting more lost about in the shuffle so to speak in such as the playoff thread I mentioned. It obviously wouldn't get nearly as many views or hits as some mentioned in here. My apologies once more.


yo.

Smart to cash-in. He's only making like $2.8M at the moment because he signed with the Knicks after returning from China. One of the best contracts in the NBA this season, remains to be seen if some GM will horribly overpay for him. There's like an 85% chance of that happening, too many stupid general managers.
