JR Smith admits he'd like to be traded from Cavs

J.R. Smith might be the next name on the Cleveland Cavaliers to move on from the struggling franchise.

Smith has seemingly fallen out of the Cavs' rotation as the youth begin to take over for Cleveland following the departure of LeBron James. He not only lost his starting job, he's also appeared in just four of the team's seven games this season, averaging just 12.0 minutes per game.

The Cavs said the five-time NBA All-Star will undergo an extended period of treatment and rehabilitation. Love's injury and recovery is another major blow to the Cavs, who are 1-7 and fired coach Tyronn Lue on Sunday.

"There's a lot of things that's going on around here that I don't know the answer to and I don't know why it's going on, but it is and I can't control that", he said.

Fedor reports that GM Koby Altman recently sat down with Smith a few days ago to ask him whether or not he wanted to stay around the team while in a lesser role. I know it's been off to a really rocky start, but the more I can be out there and help this team, the better.

Over the years his numbers have declined but he is still a serviceable three-point shooter, averaging.375, just above the league average of.357.

Smith was told by the front office that playing time might be meager entering the season, a statement that has rung true. "I can't do that to the fans".

"It's not about me, it's not about who wants me here and who doesn't want me here".

He is making $14.7 million this season and has a non-guaranteed $15 million next year.
