Report: J.R. Smith Close To Deal With Knicks

(CBS) –– According to the New York Daily News, the Knicks are close to signing free agent shooting guard J.R. Smith.

The former Denver Nugget is expected to receive the team’s $2.5 million cap exception.

Smith recently returned from China, where he had to finish his contract before returning to the NBA.

The Lakers could have only offered him about $450,000, the prorated portion of the veterans’ minimum.

Smith made $6.8 million last season with Denver.

    The Knicks just added another one-dimensional player, they’ll score 110 ppg but they’ll give up 111. They thought that they could get far with two All-Stars, but both Amare and Carmelo are overrated one-dimensional players. These types of players do no lead a team to a championship – unless the coach instills a defensive mentality.
