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.

    • So we have already picked up Kelvin's fifth year option.  If I gaze into my crystal ball this is what I see happening. This upcoming season (year four) for Kelvin, will be a somewhat of a disappointment, same for Funchess. However, our offense will benefit from the varied and viable options we have provided Cam.  Panthers win Superbowl beating the Patriots and Olsen retires.  Panthers draft a tight end with pick 32.  Kelvin will swear in the offseason that he's taking things seriously as they will need him to be a leader with Olsen retiring., hint: he will because that oh so coveted second contract is looming and Kelvin is no spring chicken (already 26).  Year 5 comes. Kelvin has worked himself into shape and looks amazing. Basically everything we've always wanted from him. However, Funchess has a great season as well, remember Funchess is only (22) right now. He probably came out a year too early and it historically takes WRs a couple years to hit their stride.  Big time decision will come down to Gettleman and co. and I ultimately think we move on from Benjamin where he goes on to sign with the Los Angeles Rams. 
    • Competition makes the most of everyone. Gano had an off year and might be spurred on by the challenge. This guy seems like a good kid, but only one or two new kickers make it into the league each year... it's a hard gig to land.
