Mr. Smith has some soul searching to do; fresh off another disappointing playoff run with the NY Knicks, J.R. must decide where he wants to continue his career. With teams like Detroit, Milwaukee and countless others, the self proclaimed “JR Swish” has some “thinkin” to do.
Unless someone blows him out of the water with a 4-year – 32 million dollar deal, I see J.R. re-signing in the Big Apple. He has established himself here, winning the 6th Man of the Year award under the constant supervision of Mike Woodson. Smith has had his moments, a matter of fact too many to list, however the biggest concern for me would be giving J.R. 5 million reasons to slack off. Smith has been playing the past two years for a big payday. He is not going to get the payday that he expected, due to his 2nd consecutive playoff let crumbling, but he still will get 5 million plus at the least, which hurts NY, due to their horrible cap situation.
Re-signing J.R. is not a “no-brainer”, bu...

However, the Bucks may also be making these moves to clear up cap space in hopes of landing a good...
