Smith to sit while Cavs look for trade

JR Smith on Cleveland Cavaliers Tanking 'was always the plan'

Smith won't be in uniform.

Smith requested a trade earlier this season.

When James returned to Cleveland as an opposing player in 2010, he was met with a smattering of boos. "I did that. That's why I want to keep this relationship alive". "I don't think that's fair to the trainers or the equipment guys", Smith said.

Smith said at the time, he was told he would not be in the rotation after the third game.

"It should be fun", said Cleveland small forward Cedi Osman, who trained with James, Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard over the summer.

Smith is playing 20 minutes and averaging a career-low 6.7 points per game.

Osman isn't the only one who has been touched by the greatness of James. "And then once the tip ball gets going, it is time to go to work".

No one is expecting a repeat of LeBron's first game back in Cleveland after signing with the Miami Heat.

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.

As Love stated, "Swish", as Smith is known, did become a fan favorite in Cleveland. "The goal isn't to go out there and try to get as many wins as you can", Smith told The Athletic on Monday. "I always ask him how he's doing, with his life, his health ... and just thank him".

Smith, 33, is averaging a career-low 6.7 points per game in his 15th National Basketball Association season and fourth with the Cavs.
