Cavs’ JR Smith Requests Trade

Published

Cleveland Cavaliers guard JR Smith is looking to get traded from the team, as he is upset with his playing time this season.

“Yeah,” Smith, 33, said when asked about requesting a trade, according to ESPN.

“They know. They don’t want me here, so they obviously know.”

Smith is earning $14.7 million this season, and is in his 15th year in the league, and at age 33, he may not be an attractive trade piece for even contending teams looking for veteran depth down the stretch.

Cleveland has been gauging the market for Kyle Korver, looking to trade him as soon as possible.

Cavs’ Rodney Hood Does Not Want to Be Gunner

The Cleveland Cavaliers coaching staff has been pushing shooting guard Rodney Hood to be more aggressive, but Hood admits that he simply isn’t meant to be a gunner.

“I’m not a gunner,” Hood said, according to Cleveland.com.

“I think it’s not great for our team for me to be a gunner. We have a lot of guys who can score the ball. I draw attention. So when I draw attention, make the dump-off pass and make the right play, spray out to shooters and some nights we hit shots and it’s great and some nights we don’t hit shots and it’s like, ‘You need to shoot the ball more.’

Hood has put up 13.0 ppg this season for Cleveland and admits he is still finding his place in the offense.

“Just figuring it out,” Hood stated. “Trying to figure out the even balance of being real aggressive and making plays like I’ve been trying to do.”
