J.R. Smith is an enigma plain and simple. He has the speed, quickness and range to put up huge offensive numbers for any team that is willing to pay big bucks for his services.
Smith's career average of 12.5 PPG seems a bit low for his talent and you can be assured that the Denver Nugget J.R. Smith relationship ended when the Nuggets were knocked out of the playoffs. A change of scenery would be a good idea for all involved and Smith will be a highly-coveted guard this summer.
At 6'6" he has the size and strength to be a solid defensive player, but he will require a coach that demands consistent effort out of his players.
Any team that is looking for a young sharp-shooter (Grizzlies, Bulls, Celtics) that can drain three's from anywhere in the gymnasium will be sure to be courting J.R. Smith.
Smith is finally ready to become a star....and a starter for that matter.
Team- Memphis Grizzlies
Adding Smith's range from the outside would be a huge addition to an offense that begins and ends with Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol.
Salary- five years, $55 million
