J.R. Smith No Longer Actively With Cavs

LeBron James didn't want to trade Kyrie Irving

The Athletic reported that Smith "will work out on his own" while the team negotiates a trade, noting that the breakup is "amicable".

The team said Tuesday that the disgruntled forward, who had requested to be traded earlier this season, "will no longer be with team as the organization works with JR and his representation regarding his future".

Smith averaged 12.6 points a game in his first 14 National Basketball Association campaigns, which included stints at New Orleans and Denver before a 2011-12 season with China's Zhejiang Golden Bulls and an National Basketball Association return with the Knicks.

Smith, who publicly accused the Cavaliers of tanking, has wanted out of Cleveland for some time.

The 33-year-old has spent the last four-plus seasons with the Cavs after coming over in a deal with the New York Knicks.

Other than the two turnovers, Rivers had a big day, finishing 28-of-43 for 401 passing yards, with two touchdown passes. The interception would help set up a touchdown run by Royce Freeman to get Denver back in the game to make it 19-14.

In a statement, he said execution would be recommended for five of them who "are charged with ordering and committing the crime". Jubeir also said that the king and his crown prince are a red line and that "we will not allow them to be harmed".

The Athletic's Jason Lloyd reported that one of the reasons Smith was still on the team before Tuesday is because he refused to accept a buyout. Coach Tyronn Lue was sacked last month and All-Star forward Kevin Love is sidelined indefinitely following foot surgery.

Cleveland dropped to a league-worst 2-13 record Monday with a 113-102 loss to the Pistons, and JR Smith isn't buying any of the talk about a potential turnaround and trip to the playoffs. While his play has been inconsistent, he was a major contributor on Cleveland's 2016 championship team.

The day the Cavaliers agreed to trade Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics, LeBron James was signing jerseys for Upper Deck in Santa Monica, California. "But as far as J.R. goes, we all wish him the best, we all love him".

"I think it recalibrated before Game 1 was even played", Hill said. Cleveland wound up losing in overtime and got swept by the Warriors. He has averaged 10.3 points in 255 games with Cleveland over the past five seasons.
