J.R. Smith being "Courted" By The Bobcats

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

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.

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

    • This makes sense to a degree with one big BUT... It's clear we'll be changing up our offense quite a bit this season - both due to the need for "evolution" and because of all the new players on offense we have to integrate - especially CMC & Samuel.  So, Stew needs more reps than he would have needed last year just to get in a rhythm with the new guys... Otherwise what you write makes sense. 
    • Already admitted i was wrong saying that, what I meant to write was he never learned to do it in college and makes it much easier to fall back into old habits in the pros. Was going back and edit that before I posted the thread and just forgot. And yes, every QB is going to be inaccurate at times, Cam is more inaccurate than the other top ten QBs, He just is, that's not his game,  didn't see anyone complaining about in 15. He makes up for it in other ways. And, no offense meant, didn't see a whole lot of Cam blaming in your post, actually, didn't see any. It was all someone else's fault. Cam has more difficult throws than many QBs because he frequently passes up easy throws for more difficult ones.
