Frank Isola ‏@FisolaNYDN

The contracts signed by J.J. Redick and Kevin Martin are similar to what J.R. Smith can get from the Knicks.

 

Frank Isola ‏@FisolaNYDN

J.R. would re-sign with the Knicks if the money is comparable. Also being courted by Pistons, Mavs, Bucks, Rockets and Bobcats.

 

 

This particular guy writes for the New York Daily News and has 50,000 followers... so I would say he is legit.

 

Now that it's out that Smith is looking for money similar to what Redick and Martin got...

 

Do you tell how Al that you can sign him and J.R. Smith if he take a slight pay cut (Al Jefferson: $14 million, J.R. Smith: 10 million)?

 

Or do you just stick with Gerald Henderson?

 

Which looks better...

 

Option A

PG: Kemba Walker

SG: J.R. Smith

SF: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

PF: Cody Zeller

C: Al Jefferson

 

OR

Option B

PG: Kemba Walker

SG: Gerald Henderson

SF: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

PF: Cody Zeller

C: Al Jefferson

Team A is perhaps the worst defensive team in the league but it would score a lot of points. Team B would be a bit better defensively but less offensive potential(less spacing).

Most likely the best overall starting lineup would be

Kemba
Smith
MKG
Biyombo
Jefferson

With Zeller and Sessions playing heavy minutes off the bench.

You have to wonder with Frank letting everyone know J.R.'s market, how much he will actually make.

I take the tweet as J.R. would resign with the Knicks at $8 mil (because they're the Knicks), but let's say someone like Charlotte comes in and offers Smith $10 million per year (basically what the Cats have invested in Henderson).

Does J.R. take the extra $2 million per year, or does he stay in New York...

I love me some J.R.

If they rescind that offer to Henderson, that means something is up.

I wonder how good that team could be. Would the be 5th/6th seed or just slipping into the playoffs to get dusted. Man I just don't know. I'm all about getting a shooter and all but idk if I want jr smith

Big AL and J.R. would make us dangerous. We could score with anyone.

What is the Portland pick we're still owed? Is it possible to still make the playoffs and get a lottery pick?

Portland's pick would go to Charlotte if it's 13th or later, Detroit's pick would go to Charlotte if it's 9th or later.

If the Bobcats sign JR Smith and Jefferson, there would be a ton of 120-110 losses. It would be fun to watch at least. Biyombo would have to be in the starting lineup though.

At 10 mil, I easily take JR over Hendo. Only Bobcats fans would think that Hendo is worth that money. I just don't know what direction this team is leaning toward with the possible signing of Big Al and now courting JR. You can't tell me that with those two additions we're not going to be a Playoffs team this upcoming season. From thinking that we could have "3" 1st rounders next year to potentially having "none" (Chicago, Top10 protected: TNT).

We would absolutely lose our to Chicago for TNT (top10 protected). We will have to pray that we lands Portland's and Detriot's.
