Cavaliers release statement on JR Smith situation

Kyrie Irving on Le Bron comments'I'm just ready to move forward

The 33-year-old returned to his hometown franchise in 2014 and immediately repaid them by taking them to the National Basketball Association title in 2016, defeating the Golden State Warriors.

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.

Disgruntled Cavaliers forward J.R. Smith has gotten his wish: He is parting ways with Cleveland.

James, who in July left the Cavaliers for the second time, and his new team, the Los Angeles Lakers, will make their only visit to The Q this season tonight at 8.

While Smith's contract is fairly tradeable, given it is partially guaranteed for next season, it's not a lock that a contender would welcome the opportunity to acquire the shot-happy guard.

He has struggled in 11 games this season, averaging 6.7 points on 34.2 per cent shooting in just over 20 minutes a night.

His move to the Lakers in the off-season broke Cavs fans' hearts.

That's because All-Star power forward Kevin Love said Tuesday he expects to be sidelined until "sometime after the new year".

"I don't think the goal is to win", Smith told The Athletic.

"I don't want my legacy to be remembered like that in Cleveland", Smith told The Athletic. I think we are playing some really good ball right now. "I think that was always the plan". "And personally I'm in a wholly different space than I was in 2010, so s-- doesn't bother me". All proceeds from the raffle will go to the LeBron James Family Foundation and winners will get a pair of "I Promise" LeBron 16s as well as a custom made surfboard signed by LeBron himself.

The NBA trade deadline is February 7.
