From the article: "Smith suggested Thursday he’s there was a 'strong possibility' he’d sign elsewhere next summer as a free agent"
At a height and weight of 6'6 and 220 pounds, respectively, J.R. Smith is considered a Swingman. Since the Nuggets got Chandler and the Italian Stallion from the Knicks, he has pretty much been a non-factor. In fact, Karl has been playing Felton and Lawson together, so Smith's time is pretty much non-existent at SG.
I wouldn't want to the FO to put too much attention on J.R. Smith, but I mean when he is young (25yrs) and he is a good shooter (especially when he is on fire). His problem seems to be that as his minuted decrease so does his productivity (a la Randy Foye), so he will not be a smart signing if he comes off the bench and plays less than 20 minutes per game.
Next year, I believe we are set at SG, with EJ starting and his Foyeness as a good backup. J.R. Smith is not the answer at SF,since he is undersized for a SF and turning him into a somewhat good defender would take a miracle that God himself cannot answer, but offensively he is a good option!
