JR Smith
Position: G
Born: 09/09/85
Height: 6-6 / 1.98
Weight:220 lbs. / 99.8 kg.
Salary: $13,760,000
Smith held the position from Game No. 4 until March 13, when, after a season of disappointment and inconsistency, Lue moved him to the bench for good. And in the last 15 games, all off the bench, Smith is shooting shooting .489 from 3-point range (compared with .377 for the season). “This is probably the most comfortable role I’ve fit in since my career started in the NBA,” said Smith, who is in his 14th NBA season. “Majority of my career I’ve been a sixth-man type of guy and coming off the bench, so it’s easier to revert back.
Former Knick and current Cavaliers teammate J.R. Smith was even more direct when told about and shown a photo of the billboard on Sunday, not mincing words when asked if he believes there’s any chance LeBron winds up with the Knicks as a free agent this summer. “Nah, don’t think so. Can’t see it (happening),” Smith told the Daily News with a laugh after the Cavs worked out at Basketball City at Pier 36 on South Street. “But that’s cool, though, man. A lot of cities have tried that already with (a billboard). But we’ll see what happens.”

After spending time with his new pooch pal, Smith — who totaled six points on 3-for-9 shooting in the Cavs’ first two games of their three-game road trip — finished strong in Charlotte, scoring 19 points off the bench on 8-for-9 shooting while adding five rebounds, three assists and three steals in a 118-105 win. “It was right on time, especially for me,” Smith said of his interaction with Remington. “I’m an emotional person. I live in my head. I don’t really express a lot of things. But let’s just say it was right on time.” Smith owns two English Bulldogs — Dallas and Cowboy — and threw a birthday party for one of his pups when it turned 1.
