If there was a team willing to throw big money at him, he wouldn't be here.

Everybody knew Lin was getting offers, if not only for the China marketing appeal. Houston was pretty obvious.
As for Landry - there was only one GM who offered him anything and you're forgetting Landry is known to be a great character glue guy who was only 24.

Nobody wanted JR this summer, so I can't see how or why that changes.


And the only reason Toronto signed Landry was to cock block us from getting Nash :lol: :lol:

Pistons? They are going nowhere and they have been burnt with every FA signing during the past 5 years. They already have Stuckey at the 2. ZERO chance they throw money @ JR.

Kings? The only way they do something is if they waive Tyreke. I doubt they want to pair Cousins with JR.

Hawks? They just signed Lou Williams. ZERO chance they throw money on JR.

JR has a bad rep in the league. He's 27, so he's only good for a win-now team. Nobody is giving him more than $5M.


If I'm not mistaken Stuckey is about to be an FA and he's been miserable this season. They will look to upgrade if he can't turn it around.

Kings let Evans run the point plenty with Salmons as the 2 guy...JR is an upgrade over Salmons without a doubt.

Hawks are gonna let a lot of contracts expire and rebuild around their core...Included in the expirings is Kyle Korver, they're main shooting threat. They'll be happy to replace him with JR who's 27 and adds more dimensions than simply shooting.

JR's rep is going to vanish if he keeps up his level of play. Landry Fields just got a huge pay day. Jamal Crawford is becoming one of the big impact signings of the off season and he's done it in a JR Smith role. I'm hopeful that we keep JR and 5 million seems reasonable, but after this past off season craziness...I'm not taking for granted that there are some teams with needs that JR would fit.
BAT - Hawks
Rajon Rondo/Brian Roberts/Shane Larkin
Kyle Korver/Evan Fournier
Terrence Ross/Vince Carter
Al Horford/Mike Scott/Jonas Jerebko
Brandan Wright/Jermaine O'neal

What do you think he's gonna get in the next contract? 4/$48m sound right?

That's what I'm banking on. I've been a huge fan of JR Smith since he did the behind the back dunk at the dunk contest :lol: ...He's been amazing this season and I have no qualms signing him well past the 3 year bench mark that has been set by most of our contracts. 5 million for what he's given us thus far seems like a perfect deal.

I don't know man. I think that he is going to get payed handsomely next year.

Man this sucks I didn't know about this whole early bird rights thing. Now I am definitely worried. :(

Camby, Novak, Felton, Kidd are earning more than him!


Because in sports, NBA in particular, payrolls are skewed like that. Thing is, players get payed before performance which I think is a faulty system in its own right. First and foremost, J.R. was not this kind of player when we first signed him. If he was, we were not going to be able to afford him. Simple. Other teams would offer him much more money.

I think you're seriously overplaying this "character issue" stuff. What exactly has J.R done that would significantly impact his future earning potential? If continues with his mature attitude and high level of play, he'll certainly be a hot commodity on the market during the offseason. He'll be in that 10+ mill a year range.

I'm researching with some guys help, but I'm not sure what his max can be.

I read somewhere his max with us is around 5+ starting, but if we have his bird rights, how is another team able to offer more?

There will be 10 teas under the cap next season. Which one offer JR $10M?

1. Houston
2. Phoenix
3. Kings
4. Cavs
5. Bucks
6. NOH
7. Jazz
8. Hawks
9. Pistons
10. Mavs

People are forgetting that Mayo got $4M and he's 24.


To be honest all of them! And Mayo should also get more, like 8 mio... only 8 because he decreased his value in memphis!

And everyone was expecting him to be a good 6th man! Stats like 15-4-2.... the only explanation: He got paid under the table!

Could go either way with him this year; thankfully we can funnel some more money to him through his brother.

Basically everyone is saying he is the best signing of the offseason, and underpaid, yet he won't get paid next year? :roll:

I'm hardly over-stating his "character" issues. He's had problems everywhere he went to. Bulls let him go for nothing. Nuggets didn't want to re=sign him even on the cheap.

He's been doing well in NY with Woodson coddling him, but he may very well implode some place else.

I will say it again - NO MATTER HOW WELL HE PLAYS THIS SEASON, NONE OF THESE LOTTERY TEAMS ARE BIDDING FOR JRs SERVICES.

he's making a case for his maturation out there. a very dedicated player. this defensive tenacity displayed by the knicks is really benefitting his temper.
