In the latest NBA trade rumors and dramas, J.R. Smith is no doubt the much talked about player in the league. Smith still hasn’t played a single game since the NBA preseason started and why is that? Well, the Cleveland Cavaliers hasn’t signed him yet.
With the 2016-2017 NBA regular season starting to come close, rumors continue to circulate about Smith’s career path.
The Cavs offered Smith a three-year deal with a partial guarantee in the fourth year for a staggering $42 million, as reported by Chatt Sports Net.
“I don’t see it changing anytime soon,” an insider said regarding the matter.
According to Christian Post, NBA trade rumors involving Smith with almost every team in the league will unlikely die down as long as the deal with the Cavs is done. One team which is keeping an eye on the shooting guard is the Los Angeles Lakers. Rumor has it that the organization is interested and is willing to trade Jordan Clarkson in exchange for Smith.
