JR Smith Wants To Be Traded Out of Cleveland

Larry Drew Cavs

CLEVELAND- The Cleveland Cavaliers will be without their star for at least six weeks.

Smith's salary becomes more enticing during his previous year, either as a salary filler for a team under the cap or a quick roll of the dice by a team in need of outside shooting. "They don't want me, so they obviously know". It seems Smith doesn't want to wait until February, though. The 14-year veteran is averaging a career low 2.5 points per game, but is only playing 12 minutes per game.

From his soup throwing incident to a game one blunder in the 2018 NBA Finals to facing scrutiny from the league about a "Supreme leg tattoo" and his playing time being cut down completely five games into the season, times have been tough for the former Sixth Man of the Year in Cleveland recently.

The Cavs, who lost superstar LeBron James to the Los Angeles Lakers via free agency this season, are now without All-Star forward Kevin Love because of injury and sacked coach Tyronn Lue after their 0-6 start to the season.

Smith said the hardest part is that he is not getting a chance to compete anymore, which has led to his trade request.

Through seven games this season, he has only rushed 26 times for 105 yards and a touchdown, in addition to 170 receiving yards. Both teams had loud contingents of fans at the Coliseum, where Green Bay won the first Super Bowl in 1967.

"[Altman] does not want to pick up your option", Lue said in the voicemail, per the filing.

"They know", he said of the Cavaliers' front office. "I can't do that to these fans, I can't do it to the city".

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted that Smith was asked "Are you hoping for a trade?" and that Smith responded, "Yeah". He is a career 37.3 percent 3-point shooter and ranks 12th in National Basketball Association history with 1,917 3-pointers made.

"The Cleveland Cavaliers had an 'option, ' in its sole discretion, to extend the contract of its former Assistant Coach Jim Boylan one additional year for the 2018-2019 National Basketball Association season".
