Knicks Have J.R. Smith on Trade Block; Zero Interest

It has been confirmed by both ESPN’s Mark Stein and Ian Begley and also New York Daily New’s Frank Isola, that the Knicks have been eagerly trying to trade J.R. Smith for sometime now. Interest in the shoot first guard has been low to none.

Smith apparently had a run in with Coach Woodson on Monday and was benched on Tuesday vs. Charlotte. Smith got a DNP due to coaches decision.

Untying shoe laces is one thing, but showing up late to practice and arguing with the coach is where the Knicks seem to draw the line.  Smith is considered over-paid at $12 million due the next 2 seasons, and all of his numbers are down this year.  Smith is averaging 11.4 points on 35.7 percent shooting from the field.

It seems the Knicks are stuck with a guy who recently said, “If I can’t help the team, no point in me being here.” Seems like a bad sign for the struggling Knicks.
