JR Smith on record believing Cavaliers are tanking

  • LeBron James and the Lakers toppled the Cavaliers for their six win in seven games

The Cavaliers will try to trade Smith.

Smith signed that four-year, $57 million deal after playing an integral role in the Cavs' championship season.

Smith, 33, has publicly said that he wants a trade.

In a recent interview with Rachel Nichols of ESPN, Cleveland Cavaliers big man Kevin Love revealed that he won't be returning from his foot injury until some time after the new year.

Smith is in his 15th season and making $14.7 million; he has no relationship with Cavs GM Koby Altman and doesn't want a buyout.

LeBron James will return to Cleveland for the first time since joining the Los Angeles Lakers as a free agent earlier this summer.

As it was initially viewed as a solid return for the Cavaliers considering the circumstances, Thomas and Crowder ultimately did not fit in and both were moved at the trade deadline last season. While his play has been inconsistent, he was a major contributor on Cleveland's 2016 championship team. Veterans have seen their minutes given to young players.

The J.R. Smith era is over in Cleveland. He seemed to endear himself further to many by remaining shirtless during the team's victory parade through the city's streets.

"I'll think about some of the good, I'll think about some of the bad, I'll think about some of the great that I had with the franchise". Cleveland wound up losing in overtime and got swept by the Warriors.

James certainly didn't enjoy the hostile reception he got almost eight years ago, but he had the last laugh, putting up 38 points and eight rebounds in just 30 minutes - he didn't play in the fourth quarter - as the Heat steamrolled the Cavs 118-90.
