The Cleveland Cavaliers and JR Smith part ways

The Cleveland Cavaliers and JR Smith part ways

Smith, 33, has publicly said that he wants a trade.

A loss to the Pistons on Monday dropped the Cavs to 2-13, the worst record in the league.

In a statement released on Tuesday, the Cavs thanked Smith for his contributions to the organization and announced that he is working with both the team and his representation "regarding his future".

The team will attempt to trade him and he will work out on his own - away from practice - until a trade occurs.

With LeBron James coming home to Cleveland for the first time since joining the Los Angeles Lakers, the folks at Nike decided it would be a great time to raffle off special "I Promise" school editions of his LeBron 16 sneaker.

James certainly didn't enjoy the hostile reception he got almost eight years ago, but he had the last laugh, putting up 38 points and eight rebounds in just 30 minutes - he didn't play in the fourth quarter - as the Heat steamrolled the Cavs 118-90.

His move to the Lakers in the off-season broke Cavs fans' hearts.

"I don't think the goal is to win", Smith said.

The J.R. Smith era is over in Cleveland. "The goal isn't to go out there and try to get as many wins as possible".

Playing time for Smith played a role in coach Tyronn Lue being fired by the franchise earlier this season. Veterans have seen their minutes given to young players. "I think that was always the plan".

LeBron James has set out on a mission to prove why he's more than just an athlete once again with the latest "We Are Family" drawing that will benefit the LeBron James Family Foundation and his newly opened "I Promise" school located in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. "I don't like the statement of getting bought out".

The NBA trade deadline is February 7th.
